1 BTEC First Engineering Unit 1: The Engineered World Learning aim B Know about developments in engineering materials and technologies BTEC First Engineering

2 Match the key terms with the definition Telematics Blended wing bodies Surface nanotechnology Optical fibres Bionics Hydrogen fuel cells Replaced copper wire. Much faster speeds, with greater bandwidth. Much more information can be transmitted along the same size of cable. The energy produced is clean, with only heat and water as waste products. Engines that use hydrogen fuel cells are quieter and more simple than petrol or diesel engines. Different chemicals can be used on materials to give them differing surface properties. One good example is self- cleaning windows. Similar to satellite navigation systems, a telematics system can be used to track locations of vehicles by using GPS references and ICT systems combined. Different from ‘flying wing’ designs. These aircraft have a distinct wing and body, although much more aerodynamic than existing designs. Small electronic devices can be used for medical purposes to improve the medical condition of individuals. A pacemaker fitted to regulate a person’s heartbeat is a good example.

3 Bigger picture: - Know about new technologies used in engineering (UNIT 1 EXAM in January 25%) Learning objectives: - o Be able to explain what is meant by the term new technology o Describe a range of different new technologies used in engineering o Explain advantages and disadvantages of a range of new technologies Success criteria: - o Provide a description of different new technologies and how they work o Correctly explain the advantages/disadvantages of a range of new technology

New technologies Optical fibres Surface nanotechnology Hydrogen fuel cells Telematics Blended wing bodies Bionics Often used in the communications sector, have replaced copper wires. Combines ICT with communications technology to allow vehicles to be tracked. Chemical energy in hydrogen is converted to electricity. Now an alternative to petrol engines. Advanced aircraft designs consisting of large aerofoil wings joined to an aircraft body. Chemical coatings are applied to the surface of materials to improve their properties. Medical problem solutions using small devices that combine electronics and mechanisms. BTEC First Engineering

5 New technologies Optical Fibres Thin glass wire that we use to send information Computers, communications etc. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5 t6evogJbg

6 New technologies Hydrogen Fuel Cells Oxygen in the air + Hydrogen = Energy http://www.bbcamerica.com/top- gear/videos/james-tests-honda-clarity/

7 New technologies Surface Nanotechnologies The nanotechnology treatment encourages the water to form droplets on the surface which just run off Useful because it saves us needing to clean tall buildings, improves water resistant clothing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZVH7CASrBk

8 Surface nanotechnologies: o Ceramics – produces hygienic surfaces o Metals – resistant to corrosion o Glass – cleaning processes is much less time consuming o Plastics – easier surface cleaning o Textiles – surface becomes water and dirt repellent o Minerals – longer lasting materials

9 New technologies Telemetics Using technology to give us data about products. Uses: vehicle insurance, road safety, inspecting hard to reach equipment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQ GmEAbNcrg

10 New technologies Blended Wing Bodies Encouraging fuel efficiency in aviation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxM_D93gH JY

11 New technologies Bionics Replace human parts with machine parts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p Qn6ioXUpDk
