Balancing traction and grip with drainage on road surface catering to inclined curvatures

Along the twisty and high angle road surface in Singapore lies a need for judicious choice of tarmac material, for paving the roads to afford a safe journey to motorists travelling within the designed speed limit of the particular stretch of road.   Specifically, high angle curvature of roads meant that more grip must be … More Balancing traction and grip with drainage on road surface catering to inclined curvatures

Instability resulting from high center of gravity in motorcycles

Cursory glances at motorcycles on the roads would reveal that motorcycles with large engine capacity (e.g., 500 cc or 250 cc) are likely to be more unstable than ones of 125 cc engine capacity. Specifically, motorcycles of large engine capacity are typically larger at the upper portions of the motorcycles compared to ones with small … More Instability resulting from high center of gravity in motorcycles

Dangers of ultrafast charging of mobile devices

By their design, mobile devices, especially smartphones are always on, and with today‚Äôs need for high speed data communication via mobile base stations providing 4G data and voice services, energy consumption is significantly higher than feature phones of the previous mobile telecommunications era. Thus, battery capacity and energy consumption became primary points of consideration in … More Dangers of ultrafast charging of mobile devices

Importance of theory and simulation in laying the case for building large colliders for multinational particle physics experiments

Higgs boson was discovered at the Large Hadron Collider located at the border between Switzerland and France, which delivered the most important theoretical validation underlying the basis for the funding and construction of the collider itself. Fitting in at the 125 GeV (eV: electronvolt) void in the Standard Model for Particle Physics, the search for … More Importance of theory and simulation in laying the case for building large colliders for multinational particle physics experiments
