[TF] Carbyne: The World’s Strongest Material. - Page 3

post #21 of 29
Wouldn't work for cars. If being very strong was considered safe we'd still have cars made out of full steel. Crumble zones and plastic are here to stay with cars.
Maybe the engines though... very durable resistant engine that could run extreme ratios.

Why dont they use more fiberglass in cars now adays? Isn't the frame designed with crumple zones etc to thepoint that body panels do little in collisions anyway?

Anyway...imagine if they could find a way to manufacture it in a transparent form!!! You could take trips to the bottom of the ocean!! How heat resistant would it be? could it have higher tolerance for atmosphere reentry than the materials we use today?

Because repair / replacement would be ridiculously high. It's cheaper to do things the way they are done now.

Right cars frames are designed to absorb impact by crumpling. The panels are mostly plastic which are relatively very cheap to replace and repair.
Panels never were intended to provide protection in an impact, mostly the old full steel panels would just trap you.

Shouldn't it be carbyne? I'm guessing it's triple bonded...

One possible application for this material, if it can be cheaply manufactured in the macro scale, would be the cable for a space elevator.

I would be interested to know its other mechanical properties though, such as ductility and hardness. It would be no good for many applications if it is incredibly strong but incredibly brittle, although it has a poissons ratio of 0.386 which is comparable to some metals so it may be fairly ductile. A stress / strain graph would be interesting.

So any amount >$680? OK then, how about $5Bn?

The Major problem is find a way for Mass production. There are just so many application it can be used. Even Space Elevators are possible with this.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a way to easily form larger macromolecular structures with it. It's unstable in the presence of other carbyne molecules. Triple bonds are strong, but they're prone to nucleophilic attack.

I'm having a hard time seeing what the nucleophile would be in a reaction between two carbyne structures, though. Any chemists on?
