Yeah, the space between the cells theory sure makes GM's idea of liquid cooling look good.
They sure do!GM engineers and autoworkers sure shine compared to Boeing battery engineering and assemby.
Thank you for your comment. I am one of the old-school electrical engineers that used the slide rule since high school, did math in my head (I can do square roots!), remembered formulas, search for data in reference books and log tables, and use common sense and logic when I did my designs and applied data (the calculators and computers came after I graduated). Yet I have worked with hundreds of computers, mostly large-frame IBM systems, and I am now working with microcontrollers, such as the Basic Stamp, the Arduino Uno, and the Raspberry Pi. I am a DIYer and I still build my own experimental circuits (my favorite store is Radio Shack).(Goes to prove teams of slide rulers mathematicians did a better job on the 707, 727 & 747's - than all the modern wizard IT software the modern young engineer relies on - crap in - results in crap out)
Reference please? An Article by AAP today says:Well never mind, Qantas cancelled all 50 orders of the dream liners due to delays - share price of Qantas is up!
Earlier articles stated that in addition to the 14 firm orders, Quantas has options for an additional 50 aircraft. They reduced their number of firm orders back in August of last year for financial reasons, long before the latest "battery" issue.Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said the airline was working with Boeing on what any fix to the battery issues that has grounded all 787s worldwide would mean for its firm order of 14 Dreamliners.
+1 on that! We rely too much on computers. They should be a convenience, they shouldn't replace ability.I believe that modern engineers should be taught old-school methods first so they know how to think, and then learn to use computers later.
