Amended German translation of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods has been published (BAM-Press Release No. 1/2015)
The corrected and revised 2015 version of the German translation of the Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Manual of Tests and Criteria – 5th revised edition, New York and Geneva 2009, prepared by the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) is now available.
It can be downloaded as a pdf file from the BAM website from the address http://www.bam.de/de/service/publikationen/handbuecher.htm free of charge.
The revised and expanded 2015 German translation contains additions and changes according to Amendment 1 and Amendment 2 such as changes in Test Series 7 and 8 and Test Series H, changes in the test methods required for the classification of desensitized liquid explosives and Class 3 flammable liquid substances, a new test method for oxidizing solids and changes in the T6 test for lithium batteries.
This revision, legally enacted on 1 January 2015 by referring to the regulations for the Transport of Dangerous Goods via different modes of Transport: ADR 2015, RID 2015 and ADN 2015 for the European road, rail and inland waterway transport with a transitional period of six months, the IMDG Code Amendment 37-14 for sea transport with a one-year toleration period and ICAO -TI 2015-2016 for aviation without a transition period.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
