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.

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.
We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...
What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...
For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.
Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...
At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.
No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...
Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.
Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
