...Pascal Pinter Fire risk in electric vehicle batteries can be reduced by detecting flaws through nondestructive visualization. Industrial computed tomography (CT scanning) combined with advanced software that makes sense of CT-generated images, allows users to measure voids and particle sizes within...

...Rob Murner High-speed rotating components in gas turbines, flywheels, and turbo machinery can be a lethal threat in the event of a failure due to the energy they possess. To assess the risks associated with such failures, rotor assemblies can be evaluated by spin testing although there are inherent...

... of the fluid. It is recommended that the maximum temperature during quenching using oils always should be at least 55°C (100 °F) below the flash temperature, which mitigates the potential for a fire if a hung-up load occurs. This is illustrated in the following example: Flash temperature of the oil: 175°C (350...

... by their high surface reactivity. In particular, a lack of stability at increased temperatures is often seen through ignition and burning when in contact with an open flame or another heat source (Fig. 1). For aerospace applications, where in-flight and post-crash fires are a concern, easy ignition...
