Caminhão é roubado e dono vai junto orientando a polícia - Blog do M@rcondes
Torrey Lang um caminhoneiro da Geórgia, EUA, teve o seu veículo roubado,
de um estacionamento onde ele o havia deixado e saído para fazer umas
compras num centro comercial próximo. O ladrão teve o cuidado de
desengatar a o baú-carroceria e levar apenas a parte da frente. Lang viu
como tudo estava acontecendo, ligou para a polícia e correu em direção
ao veículo pulando na parte de trás. Com um celular ele foi orientando os
policiais do serviço 911 que não demoraram em localizar o veículo já
numa autopista e atiraram contra os pneus dianteiros. Pouco antes de ser
interceptado Torrey Lang pulou, com o caminhão andando. O veículo foi
cercado, o ladrão rendido e mesmo assim tentou fugir. Não adiantou, foi
preso e o caminhão recuperado.

Fernando Alonso drives Ferrari 458 Spider
Right before the start of the race weekend of the Italian Grand Prix in
Monza, Fernando Alonso wanted to try the new 458 Spider, which will be
presented at the IAA Frankfurt next Tuesday. The Scuderia Ferrari driver
enjoyed the potential of the 8-cylinder mid-rear engine from the Prancing
Horse - with hard top and fitted with the same most advanced technological
content as the multi-awarded 458 Italia and now available in an "en plein
air" version - on the roads around Maranello.
Alonso was extremely satisfied with the perfect combination of high
performance, exceptional handling and the engine sound the 458 Spider is
able to deliver.
Airless tire test Humvee vs Hummer
Non-pneumatic tires (NPT), or Airless tires, are tires that are not
supported by air pressure. They are used on some small vehicles such as
riding lawn mowers and motorized golf carts. They are also used on heavy
equipment such as backhoes, which are required to operate on sites such as
building demolition, where tire puncture is likely. Tires composed of
closed-cell polyurethane foam are also made for bicycles and wheelchairs.
The main advantage of airless tires is that they cannot go flat, but they
are far less common than air filled tires.
Airless tires generally have higher rolling resistance and provide much
less suspension than similarly shaped and sized pneumatic tires. Other
problems for airless tires include dissipating the heat buildup that occurs
when they are driven. Airless tires are often filled with compressed
polymers (plastic), rather than air.
Michelin is currently developing an integrated tire and wheel combination,
the "Tweel" (derived from "tire" and "wheel," which, as the name "Tweel"
suggests, are combined into one new, fused part), that operates entirely
without air. Michelin claims its "Tweel" has load carrying, shock
absorbing, and handling characteristics that compare favorably to
conventional pneumatic tires. Automotive engineering group of mechanical
engineering department at Clemson University is developing a low energy
loss airless tire with Michelin through the NIST ATP project.
Resilient Technologies and the University of Wisconsin--Madison's Polymer
Engineering Center are creating a "non-pneumatic tire", which is basically
a round polymeric honeycomb wrapped with a thick, black tread. The initial
version of the tire is for the Humvee and is expected to be available in
