Full Speed Ahead: Using Additive Manufacturing to Repair Ships at Sea

When a ship runs into trouble at sea, it can be time-consuming and disruptive to take it ashore to get it fixed. A team of UConn engineers has now developed a way for a ship’s crew to pinpoint the exact location of any mechanical trouble on board and, instead of taking the ship offline for […]

Submarine Engineers Simulate Real-Time Conditions to Test Key Components

Existing laboratory test methods don’t allow submarine engineers to test how a motor will vibrate in real-world conditions on a ship at sea, so designers take the conservative approach to prepare for the worst. But a team of UConn engineers has developed a method to test vibrating, manufactured components, using actuators and shake tables, sensors, and […]
