Lattice structure can absorb wide range of vibrations

Lattice structure can absorb wide range of vibrations
Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a lattice structure capable of absorbing a wide range of vibrations while also being useful as a load-bearing component – for example, in propellers, rotors and rockets. It can absorb vibrations in the audible range, which are the most undesirable in engineering applications. Vibrations from a bus engine can sometimes be felt uncomfortably strongly through the seats.

Optimising ship’s engines with virtual sensors

Optimising ship’s engines with virtual sensors
An ETH spin-off, Vir2sense, specialises in the development of virtual testbeds designed to optimise the performance of marine diesel engines. The young entrepreneurs, Christophe Barro and Panagiotis Kyrtatos, hope to sell their product to big shipping companies. In the world of global shipping, deep-sea vessels are the industry’s workhorses, tirelessly transporting goods across the main maritime routes.
