    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog Over the last year I’ve been learning some real practical engineering lessons from the most unlikely of sources: my IKEA Austmarka wardrobe. Brought from that nightmarish trip, which has become the modern day ritual for all people moving into an unfurnished place; I estimate that this modular masterpiece survived for about three months before it needed some engineering assistance. My engineering lesson came at two in the morning when Austmarka decided that supporting the clothes rail was something of an optional duty. After a week of playing ‘if I…

  • Building 'smart' cell-based therapies

    Engineering News -- ScienceDaily
    17 Apr 2014 | 1:42 pm
    A technology for engineering human cells as therapies has been developed by scientists. The the technology becomes activated only in diseased tissues. It sits on the surface of a cell and can be programmed to sense specific external factors. For example, the engineered cell could detect big, soluble protein molecules that indicate that it's next to a tumor. When the biosensor detects such a factor, it sends a signal into the engineered cell's nucleus to activate a gene expression program, such as the production of tumor-killing proteins or chemicals.

    A way of making hundreds -- or even thousands -- of tiny robots cluster to carry out tasks without using any memory or processing power has been developed. Engineers have programmed extremely simple robots that are able to form a dense cluster without the need for complex computation, in a similar way to how a swarm of bees or a flock of birds is able to carry out tasks collectively.

  • Louisiana Still Backs Project Planned By Russia’s EuroChem

    Alex Tullo
    18 Apr 2014 | 12:08 pm
    Back in July 2013, the Russian fertilizer maker EuroChem, in a joint press release with Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, announced it was planning to build a $1.5 billion ammonia and urea complex in Louisiana. At the time, the announcement was just one in a long line of chemical and fertilizer projects meant to take advantage of shale. The project seemed plausible enough. There have been plenty of foreign companies planning large U.S. projects–for example, South Africa’s Sasol, which is working on an ethylene cracker and gas-to-liquids plants in Louisiana.

    University of Durham chemistry professor Kenneth Wade, famously known for the borane electron-counting rule that bears his name, passed away on March 16 at age 81. Chemists at the University of Nottingham, led by big-haired chemistry professor Martyn Poliakoff, have prepared a lovely video tribute to Professor Wade as part of their Periodic Table of Video series. Chemists use electron-counting rules to determine bonding patterns in different classes of compounds, such as the familiar octet rule for first- and second-row elements, the 18-electron rule for transition metals, and the Hückel…

    Engineers are people of action, not just words.  But even if we believe what we are often told about climate change, it's not at all clear what we should do about it.Last week, I attended a meeting at which a highly credentialed professional meteorologist outlined the history of the science of climate change from the nineteenth century to the present.  Prof. Andrew Dessler of Texas A&M's Department of Atmospheric Sciences described how as long ago as the 1890s, Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius calculated that the small concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere (then…

  • The Ethics of Patents: Patrolling the Patent Trolls

    17 Mar 2014 | 4:17 am
    As most engineers know, the U. S. patent system is intended to protect the inventor's rights in an invention.  A patent holder has exclusive rights to make, sell, or license an invention for a limited period of time (currently 20 years).  This is a compromise between two extremes:  the free-for-all extreme in which no patent law exists and anyone who can figure out an invention can copy it and make it without incurring development costs, and the perpetual-monopoly extreme in which patents would last forever and nobody else could ever make the invention.  Most compromises…

    When leather-hobby-store owner Charles Tandy bought an anemic chain of nine radio-parts retail stores in Massachusetts for only $300,000 in 1963, he had a vision for what he could do with the brand.  The embodiment of that vision began when he opened the first Radio Shack store outside of New England on West Seventh Street in Fort Worth, Texas.  Among the crowds of customers who flocked into the new store to see the latest in stereos and electronics hobby products was a small boy with a burr haircut and an expression on his face that would lead one to believe he thought he had died…

    18 Apr 2014 | 10:12 am
    I did not know that multiplying with 11 was this easy ! I came across a trick to multiply numbers with 11 and come up with your answer before the calculator . For example : 32 * 11 [For numbers which add up to less than equal to 9] Just add the two digits : 3+2=5 and place it in between the original number 32 and tada 352 is your answer 99*11[Numbers which add up to a number greater than 9] Add: 9+9=18 You again need to put this 18 in the middle of the original number but You have to add... Yes !! I do not need a calculator

    With the growing popularity of SIP designed homes, it is important to know some critical details that are different than traditional stick frame design. Below is a list of what I have developed as important details to consider as early as the pre-design stage as well as tips during construction as well: 1.) The thickness of the SIP wall is a critical factor in determining your layout geometry. Most SIP manufacturers provide panels in both 2×4 and 2×6 varieties, however, bear in mind that those sizes predicate that the 2×4 or 2×6 is sandwiched between the panels. Therefore,…

  • Architects and Engineers need Errors & Omissions Insurance

    Sean O'Hara
    10 Apr 2014 | 1:32 pm
    When you are making decisions about hiring an architect, engineer or other licensed building professional it is important to verify that they carry Errors & Omissions Insurance (E&O). As a client, errors and omissions insurance protects you from major professional mistakes that cause you financial harm. While it is always better to try to work through issues on building projects, there is risk that you may not be able to work through major errors or omissions. If your design professional does not carry E&O they are unlikely to have the funds to rectify the situation. Most…

It revolutionized our process and saved a lot of material from being scrapped. This engineer was obviously proud of his achievement and wrote a paper on it and applied for a patent. Everyone was envious of him and his accomplishment. That was until he found out the rest of the world had being doing this sort of thing for the last 30 years.

    The way we work is changing. The structured production lines of the factories from decades ago are diminishing. As more tasks are automated and the tools we use become more powerful, the skills required of the engineering workforce in particular is changing. A lot of the work carried out by modern engineers is creative and self-directed. That’s a shift from days gone by where the primary aim of many engineers was to keep the production line running, or at least to design products or components which made use of the factory manufacturing model. Now, we’re not bounded by the shift…

    David Smith
    8 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    Monitoring environmental compliance is no easy task. A great deal of coordination and information exchange is needed to verify that construction programs adhere to legal standards. In order to effectively monitor environmental compliance, timely and accurate compilation of data is required throughout the execution of large construction programs. As a means of streamlining compliance monitoring, my team and I have implemented a GIS-based system for field collection and reporting of compliance data, which encompasses biological, air quality, water quality, cultural resources, safety and…
  • Rope Access: How Engineers Inspect Bridges

    The Burns &#38; McDonnell Team
    7 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    Bridge inspections can create challenges for engineers because parts of the structure are often difficult or costly to reach using traditional methods. Since the mid-1990s though, when an innovative approach was needed after the failure of floodgates on a California dam, climbing and rappelling has been an increasingly useful technique for bridge inspection and repair. When the floodgates on the dam near Folsom, Calif., unexpectedly failed, the owners needed to gain speedy access to the remaining gates to ensure that they weren’t becoming distressed. The problem was that the main structural…
  • Envision Rating System: A Complement to NEPA

    Carrie Barton
    4 Apr 2014 | 1:57 pm
    Both the Envision™ Sustainable Infrastructure Rating System and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) examine project impacts on communities and the environment. NEPA has existed for decades and is federally mandated, while Envision is fairly new to the scene and is completely voluntary. But opportunities exist for these two processes to complement one another and to be mutually beneficial. What Is Envision? First, a little background: Envision provides a framework for evaluating and rating the sustainability of infrastructure projects. It focuses on improving how teams design, build…
  • Key Strategies for a Successful Vertical Start-up

    Rob Rainbolt
    1 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    Taking a manufacturing plant from construction completion to commercial operation is an exciting step for any plant operator. In order to maximize efficiency from the get-go, you want your new plant to operate at 100 percent and achieve full performance from the start. But achieving successful vertical start-up is no easy task, and it requires an upfront investment of resources — financial and otherwise. Owners often focus on keeping capital costs low, and rightfully so. But a 1 percent loss in efficiency can cost more in cost-of-goods sold than spending a little bit extra on capital — an…

  • Self Healing Composites now a Possibility

    John Shury
    17 Apr 2014 | 2:25 am
    Researchers from the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology have created a 3D vascular system that allows high-performance composite materials like fibreglass to heal autonomously, and repeatedly. Internal damage in fibre-reinforced composite materials is sometimes very difficult to detect and nearly impossible to repair using conventional methods. A small internal crack can quickly grow into de-lamination where the layers can separate, this remains one of the most significant factors limiting more widespread use of composite materials. Led by professors Nancy Sottos, Scott…

    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog Over the last year I’ve been learning some real practical engineering lessons from the most unlikely of sources: my IKEA Austmarka wardrobe. Brought from that nightmarish trip, which has become the modern day ritual for all people moving into an unfurnished place; I estimate that this modular masterpiece survived for about three months before it needed some engineering assistance.

Do expect a bit of banter, especially on site- but everyone gets that. Don’t expect there to be many figureheads or much discussion about the topic across the industry. Perhaps the biggest challenge, depending on where your career takes you, will be facing the ethical dilemma of working in and for countries where gay rights are a significant…

It's become so common in our everyday life that many people have no idea about its roots. After much research on the history and origin of hummus, there are still questions left unanswered. The debate of the origin of hummus seems to be an age old one. Both Greeks and Arabs profess that this dish originated in their own countries—so who is right? Some Israeli's even claim it as their own. Food…

The unique properties within a material that regulate the effect of absorption have become super beneficial and will continue to reap new benefits. The surfaces that seem to mesh with liquids and are wetted by water are called hydrophilic. While those that fail to absorb liquid, causing droplets to form, are referred to as hydrophobic.
