    This Nigerian College Student Built a Wind- And Solar-Powered Car From Scraps The engineering senior at Nigeria’s Obagemi Awolowo University spent a year retrofitting a Volkswagen Beetle into a wind and solar-powered car, partly made of free scrap parts donated by friends and family. Everything else cost under $6,000. … Not only did Oyeyiola install a giant solar panel on top of the Beetle; he also inserted a wind turbine under the hood. As Preston explains, that allows air to flow into the grill while the car is moving, subsequently turning the turbine’s rotors and charging…

    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog Thanks to the wonders of word processing I can enjoy a vocabulary significantly larger than the collection of words I can actually spell. Alas, however, a spell-checker can only get you so far and confusing words has become the new marker of a badly written report. So here is the other half of this series picking out the words most likely to catch-out engineers writing reports. effect or affect? A confusion so common that Microsoft Word now tries to check for it; the dreaded ‘effect’ or ‘affect’.  As a rule of thumb you can…

  • World's smallest propeller could be used for microscopic medicine

    29 Jul 2014 | 1:47 pm
    Scientists have created robots that are only nanometers in length, small enough to maneuver inside the human body and possibly inside human cells.
  • Optimum inertial self-propulsion design for snowman-like nanorobot

    29 Jul 2014 | 8:53 am
    A new study investigates the effects of small but finite inertia on the propulsion of micro and nano-scale swimming machines. Scale plays a major role in locomotion. Swimming microorganisms, such as bacteria and spermatozoa, are subjected to relatively small inertial forces compared to the viscous forces exerted by the surrounding fluid. Such low-level inertia makes self-propulsion a major challenge. Now, scientists have found that the direction of propulsion made possible by such inertia is opposite to that induced by a viscoelastic fluid.
  • Beyond invisibility cloaks? Flexible metamaterial absorbers developed

    The New York Special Commissioner of Investigation yesterday released its report regarding the Beacon High School fire last January. The fire was widely reported to involve the “rainbow” flame test experiment. And indeed it did. And, as many suspected, this is what happened: Pool continued that, as she lit each Petri dish, a different color flame appeared. When the flames died out, the students asked Poole to conduct the experiment again. Poole explained that, this time, after she added the nitrates to the Petri dish, she reached for the one gallon container of methanol to add to…

    28 Jul 2014 | 3:46 am
    For people of a certain age, you're supposed to sing that title to the tune of the John Lennon song that uses the word "heaven" instead of "email."  The other day our wireless hub here at home went out, and it took a day or two before we could get a new one going.  In the interim, my wife, who was initially distressed at her lack of connectivity, remarked that actually it was a refreshing thing to go without email or looking at the Internet for a couple of days.  Without meaning to, we accidentally endured what you might call a period of fasting from email and the…

    Last Christmas, someone gave me a Kindle, and I have made intermittent attempts to get engaged in reading e-books on it.  These attempts have met with only mixed success.  A book that was highly recommended by my pastor, who makes no secret that he's not much of a reader, left me unimpressed, and I abandoned it.  More recently, out of a sense of duty to a cultural icon more than genuine interest, I downloaded (for free) a copy of Swann's Way, the first volume of Marcel Proust's encyclopedic multivolume Remembrance of Things Past.  Proust wins my nomination for Greatest…

    14 Jul 2014 | 3:39 am
    An MIT spinoff called MicroCHIPS has announced plans to market an implantable contraceptive chip that can be turned on and off remotely, and lasts for as long as sixteen years.  Funded by the (Bill) Gates Foundation to the tune of $5 million, the chip contains enough of the contraceptive drug levonorgestrel to provide contraception for the major part of a woman's fertile years.  Once implanted, the device will automatically melt a seal to release a few micrograms of the drug every month until it receives a wireless command to stop, or to start again if desired.  When developers…
  • The Robot Says You Flunked: Algorithms versus Judgment

    7 Jul 2014 | 4:24 am
    Harvard and MIT have teamed to develop an artificial-intelligence system that grades essay questions on exams.  The way it works is this.  First, a human grader manually grades a hundred essays, and feeds the essays and the grades to the computer.  Then the computer allegedly learns to imitate the grader, and goes on to grade the rest of the essays a lot faster than any manual grader could—so fast, in fact, that often the system provides students nearly instant feedback on their essays, and a chance to improve their grade by rewriting the essay before the final grade is…

    30 Jun 2014 | 3:44 am
    When the U. S. Supreme Court says so, that's when.  Last Wednesday, June 25, the Court issued a split decision (6-3) against Aereo, a provider of over-the-Internet broadcast TV service which used a unique technology to get around the requirement to pay retransmission fees to program originators, as cable TV companies do.  Without such fees, Aereo's service was really cheap—as little as eight bucks a month—and over the last year or two the firm had expanded into several urban U. S. markets.  In response to the ruling, on Sunday June 28 Aereo's CEO Ken Kanojia pulled the plug…

The city says it doesn’t have the money or staff to maintain one.”For us to stop funding other programs, like providing better lighting to fund pole inspections, is something that’s not going to be productive,” said Ross Sasamura, director of the Dept. of…

    Last week I received a report on our departmental progress, it was in effect, a reminder of what we’ve “shipped” over the past six months. Having a regular reminder of your progress seems like a good thing, and it is supported by research: making headway on meaningful work brightens a person’s inner work life and boosts long-term progress. It isn’t monetary rewards and recognition that truly motivate us. It’s a sense that we are accomplishing something meaningful – day by day. Why a ‘done’ list beats a to-do list Tracking these things we’ve done makes…

At the start of summer this area usually becomes flooded as BC Hydro fills the Arrow Lakes Reservoir for the summer. Many of Revelstoke’s recreation trails on the flats become submerged for a couple of months and areas we would walk or bike can be canoed over. Camera: iPhone 5cTaken: 21 June, 2014Location:

    Last week on my electronics podcast, The Amp Hour, I did something uncharacteristic: I mentioned where I’m working, while I’m working there. Normally I don’t talk about my place of employment until after I have left, which has always served me well. There is no conflict of interest in talking about work that protected by non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).  This time is different though, because the nature of the company is different (and my role will be more public facing than my normal role as an engineer). I’ve been working with Supply Frame part time, in addition…

    I have corresponded with a international student for a few years now. I honestly can’t even remember how we met online and it doesn’t matter. He showed interest in my work and we started talking and have continued as he has graduated from US university and found a job locally. Recently he asked me: I don’t like my current job. How can I get a job at Google? I asked him why he wanted to move to Google. High pay? Exciting work? Big challenges? A recognizable name on a resume? All of these things can be had at other companies, many that are easier to get to than Google.

Reasons behind why companies don’t implement document management systems, such as PDM or more enterprise-wide PLM systems, vary. Commonly cost is an issue as well as the complexities around implementing these systems. Often engineering departments…

    Back in the 70s, NASA showed off their concept of the Space Shuttle and claimed that by reusing the shuttle and the solid rocket motors a huge amount of savings could be capitalized on. Sadly those saving never materialized. You see, in order to generate those saving NASA would need to launch a shuttle two to three times a month. When NASA did come close to that launch rate schedule dominated quality and accidents happened. Accidents that cost people their lives.

  • Why Airports Need A Site-Specific Approach to Manage Spent Aircraft Deicing Fluid

    Chris Hotop
    10 Jul 2014 | 9:00 am
    Airports are under strict regulations that help protect the environment and quality of life. One of those regulatory programs is the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), which controls water pollution. To meet these clean water requirements, airports need to manage the levels of biochemical oxygen demand (BOD5) in their stormwater runoff. That can be easier said than done. A major source of BOD5 is propylene glycol, which is used in aircraft deicing fluid, and it’s a big challenge to manage spent aircraft deicing fluid (SADF). There are a lot of variables to track in…

In May, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the final rule implementing Section 316(b) for existing facilities and for new production units at existing facilities. The rule applies to intakes structures that are designed to withdraw more than 2 million gallons per day from waters of the United States and use 25 percent or more of that water for cooling. The new standards aim to reduce the mortality of fish and other aquatic life caused by water intake…

    Carbon fibre is one of the strongest materials on the plant today and is used in everything from airplane wings to business cards. One plant biologist says that in around 50 years time we’ll be growing it on trees. With the help of modern high-tech biorefineries and genetics the team at the Biosciences Division at ORNL reckon these plants could be about to transform our civilisation again whilst being carbon neutral. One-third of the tree’s weight comes from a substance called Lignin, a fibrous polymer that helps strengthen plant cell walls. In the past lignin has been a waste product…

  • Different Types of Plastic

    admin
    4 Jul 2014 | 2:47 am
    All plastics come under two categories of thermoplastics and thermosets. Thermoplastics can be softened by heat and moulded while thermosets are formed by the heat process but cannot be reshaped by secondary heating. In this article we look at the types of plastics which fall under each of these categories, what they’re used for and […] The post Different Types of Plastic appeared first on QsArticle.com.

  • Consumer Devices for Business Applications: IBM’s Corporate Customers Deploying Apple Devices in the Field?

    mitchm11741
    28 Jul 2014 | 2:20 am
    A big, surprising deal between Apple and IBM was announced in the WSJ in July – the two giants announced the intention of having IBM offer Apple devices and Big Blue custom apps to corporate clientele. While such a strategy may make sense for supporting knowledge and BYOD (bring-your-own-device) workers, it misses the boat for major commercial vertical markets (i.e. utilities, logistics, warehouse, MRO, health care, retail, etc). A recent article in Wired magazine asks why commercial users of mobile computing devices are not readily gravitating towards consumer grade cell phone devices.
  • Productization Plan: Preventing Product Failure

    danademeo
    14 Jul 2014 | 4:13 am
    Great product ideas surface every day. Sketches are drawn, teams are formed, new companies are born, business plans are written and everybody gets to work. The product varies – it could be a physical product, software, a new service or a complete solution – but the goal is always the same. A successful product. Enthused entrepreneurs frequently delve right into the design and development process, often misunderstanding the importance of asking the critical question: Exactly what am I designing and producing?  Design teams may have well developed concepts, great sketches and lots of…
  • Enabling Successful Experience Design

    Though I am not an anthropologist, it seems to me that people are born with an innate affinity for tools – physical things that they can interact with that make both work and play simpler and richer. In the absence of more realistic toys, small children will use sticks in their play. Despite the amazing technology behind the XBOX Kinect and Sony’s PlayStation Move, game controllers, steering wheels, and joysticks remain popular gaming accessories. Product developers today must consider the entire product ecosystem, from web and apps to devices and services. Hardware devices often fit into…
  • Sketching and the Industrial Design Process

    csvenjohnson
    17 Jun 2014 | 6:32 am
    Last week a relatively recent graduate lamented online that he’d not had much luck establishing correspondence with potential employers to whom he’d submitted his portfolio. In response, I offered to critique his work. What I found is what I usually find when I critique a portfolio these days: a general lack of understanding for and/or appreciation of the typical Industrial Design process. In particular, there appears to me to be, in general, a casual disregard among newly minted design graduates for the importance of “sketching”; whether that means putting marks on a…
  • Find the Job You Really Want

    It took many jobs to get me to my current position as CEO. Right out of school, I held four different jobs in the first five years, and each of them was very different. All classified broadly under “mechanical engineering.” It wasn’t until the fifth job that I realized what I liked and where I fit. From that point on, changing jobs became less frequent and I began a very satisfying career that ultimately lead to the creation of IPS. Recently, an entry-level individual connected with me via LinkedIn for some guidance. Advising this person prompted me to write this post. Here are my…
