Airbus will launch fastest supersonic jet

Airbus will launch fastest supersonic jet within a year which will be capable of flying at a speed of four times the speed of sound. Airbus has won a patent for a supersonic fastest jet of the world according to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
Fastest supersonic jet

Previously fastest commercial jet of the world is Concorde but this new air vehicle will be twice as fast as Concorde. The Concorde, manufactured by a company now acquired by Airbus, was capable of flying at about 1,300 mph (2,100 km/h), or twice the speed of sound. This new invention by airbus will beat the speed of Concorde with introduction of new turbojets and hydrogen powered systems.
This hypersonic jet will require at least one year before final manufacturing of a model aircraft with this much speed. In my personal opinion, successful launch of this aircraft will be a great milestone for mechanical engineers and aerospace engineers of the world. This fastest supersonic jet launched by airbus will enhance efficiency of transportation and will serve as a start of a new chapter in aerospace engineering.

According to Airbus officials, this hypersonic jet will be able to serve both civilian and military purposes. In civilian or commercial application, this supersonic craft will be able to accommodate 20 passengers. While for military, this jet can be used to transport military equipment for commandos just like that of SR71 Blackbird.

According to Airbus, plane’s aerodynamics are designed in such a way that it will reduce sonic boom when it gains supersonic speed. This was the greatest problem in Concorde. Several complaints about sonic boom and noise pollution created by Concorde were received due to which it was prevented from operating over land.

Are Engineers Favourite Among Girls?

What do girls think about men who are engineers and what type of engineers are most favourite among girls? A survey was conducted by a team of aboutmech with members chosen from different countries. Each team member carried out a neutral survey in his/ her country to evaluate what females think about most of the engineers from different engineering branches. An overview of different questions asked in survey is given below: Question: Which male engineers do you find more attractive as a husband? Almost 50% women voted for mechanical engineers to be the most attractive husbands among other engineers. So mechanical engineers are most favourite among girls as a husband. They find them more trustworthy, intelligent, and creative. A married women from California said, “If your husband is a mechanical engineer, he will help you in everyday tasks. Because mechanical engineers are good team players and they have creative ideas about everything.” Which male engineers do you find more

Best CV Format for Mechanical Engineers

Fifty percent engineers fail to grab a dream job because of basic faults in their CVs/ Resume. This article tells you about best CV format for mechanical engineers and how you are supposed to design your CV when applying for jobs. You CV is your first impression on future employer. He/ she does not know you. Your CV is the only representation of your personality. He/ she may select or reject you after first glance on your resume.  I have experienced shortlisting and interviewing candidates for different jobs. I was astonished to learn that most of the candidates simply copy paste each others CVs without any changes at all. These types of CVs are rejected immediately. I am not trying to tell you that you should avoid copying, rather i ma telling you to refrain from giving your CV to your friends. An ideal CV consists of following portions: Name/ Address of the applicant Objective Education Record Employment History Professional Skills Awards & Achievements Co-Cu

Engineering Mechanics - Introduction

The Engineering Mechanics is that branch of Engineering-science which deals with the principles of mechanics along with their applications to engineering problems. It is sub-divided into the following two main groups: (a) Statics, and (b) Dynamics The Statics is that branch of Engineering Mechanics which deals with the forces and their effects, while acting upon the bodies at rest. The Dynamics is that branch of Engineering Mechanics which deals with the forces and their effects, while acting upon the bodies in motion. It is further sub-divided into the following two branches: (i) Kinetics, and (ii) Kinematics The Kinetics is that branch of Dynamics, which deals with the bodies in motion due to the application of forces. The Kinematics is that branch of Dynamics which deals with the bodies in motion without taking into account the forces which are responsible for the motion.
