Video of the Day: Massive 2000°C flame vs. Aerogel infused blanket

Aerogel-infused fiberglass blanket is able to withstand severe 2,000 Celcius heat generated by a flamethrower. Silica aerogel has a sponge-like structure with tiny passages just tens of nanometres wide. The heat struggles to pass through this material due to its complicated nano structure. At the end of the filming of this video, the flamethrower actually …

The melting point of steel alloys

The Melting Point of Steel Alloys

In simple terms, the melting point of steel for example, is the temperature when it starts to change from a solid state to a liquid. At this specific melting point temperature both phases of the substance exist in equilibrium. Therefore, further heating needs to be passed through the substance to complete the transition from solid …
