Dispositivo de frenado regenerativo neumático capaz de almacenar la energía cinética absorbida durante el proceso de frenado de la bicicleta, mediante compresión de aire ambiente y su almacenado como aire comprimido. Éste es utilizado como fuente de energía en el caso de necesitar ayuda adicional en[…]

Orientation of fibers within composites: improvement of material properties and manufacturing process

It is well known that there are correlations between fiber orientation and mechanical and/or physical properties of the composite. Knowing the real orientation of the fibers within a composite material can help to optimize the design and manufacturing process. A composite material contains materia[…]

Lightweight (2)

Reusable device that allows the circulation of a constant volume of electrolyte in tests on rotating bending fatigue test machines.

Rotating bending fatigue machine are essential for testing material properties. It is usual to face samples of the different materials to conditions that differ from the usual ones, such as corrosive environments, to evaluate their behavior. Researchers from the University of Burgos have developed […]

Evaluation of mechanical and fracture properties by miniature punching test

In recent decades, many researchers have used the miniature punching test in order to obtain the mechanical and fracture properties of a material, in cases where there is not enough material to carry out standardized tests. such as in the case of welds or irradiated material. In this sense, a proced[…]

Measurements and Standards (2)

The University of Burgos, through the AUSINCO research group (Auscultation, Instrumentation and Control of Structures), makes available to the civil works sector (construction companies, quality control companies, research centers, Public Administrations, etc.) and industry, a technology based on la[…]

Solid sensory film for in situ detection and quantification of Iron, Aluminium and Mercury

The development of simple, fast and inexpensive colorimetric sensors for timeless and in-situ detection of trace amounts of iron, aluminium and mercury in aqueous media by non-specialized personnel has become a major challenge, mainly because the presence or absence of these compounds can lead to a […]
