Kobe Steel has developed steel with a tensile strength of 1,470 megapascals, up from 980 MPa achieved for existing steel car components.
The injectors, which inject fuel at pressures as high as 12 megapascals, are housed in an isolation cuff made of stainless steel which acts like a spring, absorbing energy created by the pulsing of the injectors as they deliver fuel into the cylinders.
The bottles of orange juice are subjected to 600 megapascals (MPa) of pressure for 60 seconds.
Each load cell measured cone index values of nearly 7 MegaPascals (1,000 psi) before exceeding capacity, which was sufficient for hardpan soil conditions.
The group concluded that baseline performance parameters should be a fill time of 23 sec, gate removal stresses of 190 megapascals, a metal front jet 4.
All seals and latches are designed to be capable of containing either positive or negative differential pressures of up to 10 megapascals.
Compressive strength of all recommended UHPC mixes exceeded the minimum required compressive strength of 20 kips per square inch, ksi (138 megapascals, MPa).
The strongest known materials, such as steel, can withstand thousands of megapascals of pressure but have densities well above 1,000 kilograms per cubic meter.
In a comparison test with various extrusion gaps at 40 megapascals and 100AC, seals with the new generation of polyurethane show no appreciable sign of wear, while conventional seals malfunction prematurely.
5mm-diameter type R thermocouple when breaking after 100 hours of use at 1,400 degrees Celsius, wire using conventional technology breaks under the extremely small force of 2 megapascals (MPa), but the newly developed thermocouple wire does not break until 20MPa of applied stress.
6 megapascals of pressure were placed on the magma chamber, which is equivalent to an atmospheric pressure of some 15.
Overall, pressure treatment at 400 to 450 megapascals (MPa) in the soaked condition or 450 to 500 MPa in the briefly wetted condition rendered Salmonella undetectable.
