HI Announces Mechanical Seals Summer Webinar Series
The series begins on Tuesday, July 26, 2011. This is a 4-part webinar series based on the HI FSA guidebook, Mechanical Seals for Pumps: Application Guidelines, published in cooperation with the Fluid Sealing Association. Each webinar lasts about one hour, including a Q&A session. Webinar participants will be led by and have access to some of the world’s top mechanical seals experts in a non-commercial educational forum. Participants receive 4 professional development hours (PDH credits) for participating in this four-part webinar series. PDH credits are offered after completion of each w

Details of WSU research
Bonded composite repair, consisting of a polymer composite patch bonded to a damaged part with an adhesive, is widely used to repair aerospace components. In current repair practice, any repair with cure temperature variation outside a very narrow band must be reworked and sometimes rejected even though the repaired part might be acceptable for service. Furthermore, the cure state throughout the repair patch and the bondline is not known; therefore, an accurate estimation of the mechanical properties during cure is not possible. Moreover, the current practice relies heavily on thermocoupl
