Ways in Which Aerospace Shapes the Future of Construction
As opposed to the construction industry, the aerospace and aviation industries have always been an innovative sector. The business models, services and products of the aerospace industry require constant improvement and innovation.
This article mentions a lesson obtained from the aviation industry to help shape the future of construction.
Use novel technologies
The construction industry should learn from aerospace industry to embrace advanced technologies. This can be done by modifying the business model. The introduction of innovative technologies like reusable rockets will help in dramatic reduction of the lead time and cost to access the space.
Groupe Meloche Salaberry-de-Valleyfield got founded in 1974. It operates in the aviation industry. The firm manufactures aero motor and aerostructure parts, masters the entire value chain, from manufacture to delivery to the customer.
Learn from basic constraints
On Earth, there is an abundance of minerals, natural resources, and energy to assist human life. Engineers and scientists have spent several years to master technology that assists astronaut to recover as well as recycle those fundamental essentialities in the severe space environment. The closed-end circulatory system includes the food supply, production, and waste cycle.
It increases the use of aerospace assets and lifecycle performance, trips to planetary outposts, deep space missions, and resupply missions that become imaginable in the coming future. The construction industry is just the starting point to abstractly think in lifecycle performance and closed-end circulatory systems.
Learn from experience
Astronauts spend a lot of time in getting a thorough understanding of the hazards of the ventures. It includes disturbing safety and health issues. The most hazardous area of airline travel is landing and take-off.
During interplanetary travel, people face an increase of 25,000% in radiation as compared to the earth’s surface. Also, reduction in bones and muscles advances rapidly due to the “micro-gravity” environment. Micro-meteorites can cause hole in the spacecraft. Astronauts can even experience very low temperatures as -130°C to extremely high temperatures at 120°C.
Adopting a human-centered approach
A human-centric approach is critical in both the construction sector as well as at the time of entering outer space. Learning about comfort and ease is an optimal condition to support human life in space.
Spacecraft concepts use a human-centered design that is indisputable. Human-centered designs such as interlocking design, sensory stimulation, and modularity, result in abrupt improvements to the physical and mental well-being of the person.
The construction industry has been hesitant to implement the latest technology tools. These are the important lessons that will lead to innovation in construction industry.
