    Taking a revolutionary 'building blocks' approach, a research team has invented a new thinking pathway in the design and synthesis of macromolecules by creating an original class of giant tetrahedra. Through a reaction called 'click chemistry,' these tetrahedron building blocks can then be precisely manipulated to unite with other tetrahedrons.

    A new high-tech but simple ointment applied to the skin may one day help diabetic patients heal stubborn and painful ulcers on their feet, Northwestern University researchers report. They are the first to develop a topical gene regulation technology that speeds the healing of ulcers in diabetic animals. The scientists combined spherical nucleic acids with a common commercial moisturizer to create a way to topically knock down a gene known to interfere with wound healing.
  • Examining Einstein: Precise experiments using lasers and clocks in space

    23 Apr 2015 | 5:52 am
    Albert Einstein tells us that clocks run slower the deeper they are in the gravitational potential well of a mass – the closer they are to a heavenly body, for example. This effect is described by General Relativity Theory as the gravitational red shift – it is detectable in spectral lines that shift toward the red end of the spectrum. General Relativity Theory also predicts that the rates of all clocks are equally influenced by gravitation independent of how these clocks are physically or technically constructed. However, more recent theories of gravitation allow for the possibility that…

  • Charges against Denver teacher dismissed

    13 Apr 2015 | 4:30 am
    Last fall, a Denver teacher, Daniel Powell, was charged with four counts of misdemeanor assault after a classroom fire seriously burned a student. Powell had lit a small pool of methanol to demonstrate its flame properties, then tried to add more methanol from a 4 L container, Chemical Safety & Hazard Investigation Board investigators said in September. The fire flashed back into the container, then jetted out to hit the student in the chest. Other students sitting nearby were also injured. The charges against Powell have been dropped, says Lynn Kimbrough, communications director for the…

    Today, impossible heroes and implausible villains are to be found mainly in video games, but back in the 1930s, one of the largest-selling series of adventure books for boys was based around a young inventor character named Tom Swift.  Great literature it was not, but there was plenty of action, the good guys were always good, and the bad guys were really bad, although sometimes it was hard to tell what they were being bad about.  I particularly remember the closing scene of one book in which, after Tom foils a complicated attempt by an evildoer to wreak havoc on an entire city, the…
  • Explosions are Bad for Business: PG&E's $1.6 Billion Fine

    13 Apr 2015 | 4:27 am
    Back in 1956, the California utility company Pacific Gas & Electric laid a new gas pipeline, designated "132", to supply the growing needs of San Francisco and cities to its south along the peninsula.  The 30-inch-diameter pipeline's sections were welded together, and in one length near the town of San Bruno, a lengthwise seam was welded in one section.For many years, the pipeline carried natural gas northward to San Francisco and surrounding communities, and as the population grew, PG&E increased the pressure the pipeline carried so as to keep up with growing demand.  In…
  • Airline Pilots as Human Infrastructure: Neglect At Your Peril

    6 Apr 2015 | 3:49 am
    By now, enough information has emerged from the March 24 crash of a Germanwings plane in the French Alps to show that the co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz, deliberately flew the plane into the ground after waiting for the pilot to leave the cockpit and locking him out.  Data from the flight's recently recovered "black box" showed that Lubitz sped up the plane's descent in the moments before it flew into a mountain in the French Alps, killing all 150 people on board.  It also appears that Lubitz suffered from depression and was suppressing information about his condition from his…

    Construction accidents that lead to loss of life are always tragic, but it's unusual that anyone other than construction workers are killed or injured in them.  When hazards to the public are involved, most construction organizations take extra precautions to make sure that public safety isn't jeopardized by potentially dangerous operations or conditions.  Last week, a freak accident at a construction site came uncomfortably close to turning me into a statistic, but instead picked off another unfortunate member of the public whose safety engineers are supposed to protect.Most new…
  • Blue About Blue: Health Hazards of Nighttime Light

    A few years ago I was having trouble sleeping.  My wife, who at the time was editing a breast-cancer blog, told me about the connection between blue light and the body's 24-hour circadian rhythm, which dictates all sorts of things ranging from when you get sleepy to what your levels of stress hormones are.  It turns out that in addition to the rod and cone cells in the eye used for vision, there are special retina cells that send timekeeping signals to the entire body, based simply on the presence or absence of blue light.  During most of mankind's existence, blue light…

  • The van that goes looking for potholes

    16 Apr 2015 | 10:28 pm
    A team from Northeastern University has a very interesting van used for quantitatively assessing pavement condition using a variety of sensors. They use cameras, laser profilers, accelerometers on axles, pressure sensors in the tires, microphones, and even ground penetrating radar. The researchers reportedly characterized pavement condition of 150 miles of road in 4 days in Beverly, Massachussets, a task that took public employees about 1 year the last time it was performed, in 2010. The cost of the survey was around $25,000. The technology is expected to be commercialized this month.

  • Major Slope Failure at Yeager Airport in West Virginia

    16 Mar 2015 | 4:29 am
    There was a significant slope failure at the Yeager Airport near Charleston, West Virginia last week. A 2005 project to create an Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) at the end of the runway required a massive reinforced soil structure fill slope over 200 feet high since the airport was constructed on top of a hill. According to a presentation published by the geogrid manufacturer, this project was the tallest known geosynthetic reinforced 1:1 fill slope in North America (as of 2010). The slope failure follows a period of significant snow melt and rainfall. It is a deep-seated…

    Norwegian oil company Statoil’s Gudrun Platform operates in the North Sea’s Gudrun field. The platform operates cranes for around-the-clock cargo handling. As crane operators hoist supplies from ships to the platform, containers (some weighing as much as 8,000 kg) can move toward the Gudron Platform at 3 m/sec. The barriers’ design allows them to absorb impact energy several times greater than past designs. “Moving equipment from a supply ship onto an offshore platform in difficult conditions requires a highly engineered system of shocks and dampers,” said Tomm Kuran, sales manager…

    Modern electronic diesel engines use ultra-low sulphur fuel and have sophisticated fuel management systems that include integrated throttle control. Use of these engines results in machines with greater efficiency, enhanced functionality, increased operator safety and reduced carbon emissions. In regions where emissions are highly regulated, they offer a solution to meet the equivalent of Tier 4F (Stage 4) emissions level. However, these benefits come at a cost and electronic engines may not be competitively viable in certain applications or geographical regions. Traditional mechanical diesel…

    These two architectural terms are often used interchangeably and it’s understandable since two people pointing out the soffits and eaves on a house, let’s say, may appear to pointing to the same thing.  So what’s the difference? In this corner: an eave is the lowest part of a roof plane which often projects beyond the walls of a building.  Primarily used to help shed water away from the roof and protect the joint between the roof and the wall below, they are often also used to help mitigate solar gain. And in this corner: a soffit most typically refers to the horizontal underside of…

    Sean O'Hara

    In most building types the occupant count is low enough that the building is only required to have  one or two exits. The International Building Code calls out where you must have more. In each story where you have 501-1,000 occupants you are required to have three exits and where you have more than 1,000 occupants you must have four exits. The exits must be arranged where at least two of the exits are separated by more than half the diagonal of the building or in a sprinkled building separated by one third the distance.

    It’s hard to admit when you’ve made a mistake, but today I did. Instead of brushing past it, I’m going to share it with you all in the hopes that you can learn from it. I slammed down my phone in frustration and marched to where my manager sat. I then dragged him from his work into the nearest empty meeting room and slammed the door. I then began to explain to him how I did some deep seated problems with my coworker whom I had just spoken too. I carefully laid out how this coworker had wronged me by trying to act as my boss and had taken the liberty to rewrite my carefully constructed…
  • Networking For Engineers: Don’t Stay Home Without It

    Chris Walker
    16 Apr 2015 | 12:11 pm
    Unless we’re talking about data transfer protocols, networking is a word that many engineers reserve for those sales and marketing types. You know, it’s the (so-called) “work” they do with a gin and tonic in hand while they rack up huge expense claims. It’s easy to poke fun at those who seem to only spend their time blowing their own trumpet and eating yet another steak dinner, but are we missing something (apart from the steak dinner, of course)? In our ever-more-connected world, the people in our networks become even more important. As I said last…
  • Three Steps to a Better Presentation

    Craig the Rocket Scientist

    Hey everyone! I just got back from a week-long conference. There were some good presentations, some not so good presentations, and some downright awful ones. I’ve been going to enough conferences over the years to realize there are a few basic things you need to do to make sure your paper and presentation don’t end up as the one everyone is laughing about in the hotel lounge that night. 1. Set the Standard First, standards exist for a reason — that reason being that we are able to duplicate and verify your efforts. When you show your audience that you used adopted standards like…
  • The Three Keys to Engineering Successful Teams

    Chris Walker
    9 Apr 2015 | 6:20 pm
    Success in modern engineering is powered by effective teams. Almost all of the products we create and systems we innovate are too big and too complex to do on our own. The days of a someone singlehandedly designing, creating, building, testing, financing and selling an idea or creation are long gone. We all rely on the people around us, the people in our teams, to help carry the work forwards. That being said, sometimes engineers have a reputation for being mavericks. Engineers often enjoy working alone and although not as bad as scientists, engineers are sometimes perceived as lacking…

    Our power grid, more than a century old, is the largest interconnected machine on Earth. According to the National Academy of Engineering, widespread electrification — supported by the grid — is the greatest engineering achievement of the 20th century. Our legacy grid serves us well. Demands on the grid are more intense than ever, yet the reliability rate for the typical U.S. utility consumer is estimated at better than 99.97 percent. Augmented by distributed energy resources (DER), only our legacy grid can continue to provide the dependable flow of electricity residents have come to rely…

  • Separating Stormwater from Sewage at Whitehead Creek

    John Mitchell
    21 Apr 2015 | 4:00 am
    When the City of St. Joseph, Missouri, constructed its sewer system in the 1930s, standard practice was to convey sanitary sewage and stormwater runoff into a single pipe. This leads to overflows during periods of heavy rain or snowmelt and water quality degradation in streams and rivers. Faced with a decades-old problem that needed to be addressed to meet today’s environmental regulations, the city turned to Burns & McDonnell to implement a separate stormwater runoff system from the Whitehead Creek Basin and reduce combined sewer overflows to the Missouri River.

  • Fraunhofer Creates Engine with Lightweight Composite Casing

    Efforts to produce lighter vehicles necessarily include engine parts, such as the cylinder casing, which could shed up to 20% of its weight if it were made of fibre-reinforced plastic rather than aluminium – without added costs. Such injection-moulded parts are even suitable for mass production. Cars must become lighter in order to reduce fuel consumption and for most car designers they are focused on reducing the weight from body parts, but the powertrain system, which includes the engine, also accounts for a large proportion of the vehicle’s weight.

  • Chip To Chip: Tips For Using I2C

    31 Mar 2015 | 3:12 pm
    Many integrated circuit-based sensors and output devices offer an interface protocol called Inter-integrated Circuit, commonly abbreviated as I2C. There is tremendous value in using I2C-based components in a microcontroller-based solution that can result in a much more streamlined and robust product, especially if you need to interface with multiple external I/O devices. I2C allows you to share a common data and clock bus amongst multiple devices, thus reducing the I/O pin count and the number of interconnecting wires required to get everything communicating. This blog is an attempt to…
  • What Might The Future of “Personal” Computing Look Like?

    14 Mar 2015 | 9:32 am
    Predicting the future of technology is a perpetual exercise in futility. But it’s fun. The evolution of personal computing is something that futurists and tech pundits like to try to predict every few years (or months). Like forecasting the weather, you are never completely right or wrong. If you were to ask me where computers, smartphones, and wearables are heading over the next 20 years I’d sit down and take inventory of the gadgets I own today. I’d also take a trip down memory lane to remember the devices I used to own. My iPhone 6 has replaced my camcorder, digital…
  • The Future Of Wearables

    5 Mar 2015 | 11:24 am Google Glass. Samsung Wear. Apple Watch. Occulus Rift. “Wearables” is being crowned as the next big thing in consumer electronics. But is it really? Some see wearables as a fad that is being fostered by the hipster crowd and a technology industry that is searching for a few more years of market growth as the smartphone and tablet market matures. Running enthusiasts have enjoyed the use of gadgets for years to monitor and improve their fitness goals. In addition, the now infamous Bluetooth earpiece is certainly a wearable and it’s still in demand. Walk…
  • Beware of “Open Drains”

    27 Feb 2015 | 6:52 am
    As you get more advanced with your circuits you will start seeing circuit design patterns that may at first glance seem a bit weird. One such design pattern that can be confusing is the “open drain,” also called the “open collector” (when TTL circuits are involved). For the purpose of this blog we will use the term open collector, though the general principles apply to both technologies: Field Effect Transistors (FET) and Bipolar Junction Transistors (BJT). Open collector circuits are considered “active-low” and therefore require a pull-up resistor to…
  • Battling the Bouncing Button

    10 Feb 2015 | 12:07 pm
    Mechanical buttons and switches can present unintended input trouble for embedded electronics projects. There’s an undesired effect known as “bounce.” What is bounce? When you press a button it sometimes does not cleanly change states. There is some electrical noise generated as the button rapidly oscillates between states immediately after a button is pressed but before it settles. Think of it like pulling a mass-spring system downward, letting go, and waiting for it to settle at equilibrium. Switches and buttons oscillate similarly, though the time to settle is measured in…

  • Confluence of B2B and B2C Technology: How Are Product Developers Responding?

    22 Apr 2015 | 7:51 am
    The confluence of B2B and B2C technology expectations is progressing to the point of inevitability. From a technology standpoint, the blurring of distinctions between the sectors does not mean that products will be developed in exactly the same fashion for both. However, the business user is expecting a consumer-like user experience more than ever. The users and purchasers of B2B technology will favor those devices or software applications that look, feel and work like their personal technologies. In a recent Forbes article, David Edelman of McKinsey suggests, “businesses don’t really…

  • Clarifying the Scope of User Experience aka “High Bet Buttons are Prominent”

    10 Mar 2015 | 10:49 am
    While attending CES 2015, I had a minor epiphany regarding the intersection of design and technology; something new I’d not considered and which I thought might be of interest to others. However, in the course of attempting to distill my thoughts into something digestible, it occurred to me that misunderstandings might (probably would) arise from the various definitions and interpretations which accompany so many common design terms these days. How does one communicate an idea when the terms used to explain it have lost their meaning? In hopes of improving communication in general, I…

  • Three Ways That Brakes Can Make Or “Break” Your Industrial Caster

    Dylan Neal
    15 Apr 2015 | 7:59 am
    When choosing heavy-duty casters, you often consider the attributes that keep it rolling. But, in many applications, you’ll also want to think about whether the ability to stop that motion – using brakes – is equally important. In the industrial caster world, brakes can serve a very important role. Like brakes on a car, they allow for the ceasing of motion and locking in place. However, heavy-duty caster brakes can also add a modicum of control to the direction in which the casters are moving – a trait that can promote both efficient function, as well as safety in the workplace – by…
  • Caster Concepts at ProMat 2015 – All About Productivity

  • Caster Options Offer a Multitude of Benefits

    Jackie Masternak
    7 Apr 2015 | 7:11 am
    To the untrained eye, the industrial caster application can seem quite simple. A wheel, clad in a tread material and mounted upon a base, doesn’t exactly cut the image of complexity. But, more than a static component, heavy-duty casters are much more than meets the eye. Each heavy-duty caster application serves a very specific purpose – and each of those purposes can call for requirements that transcend the typical caster configuration choices – swivel or rigid and wheel size, type and capacity. Fortunately, you can outfit your heavy-duty caster with options that can change everything.
  • Kingpinless Casters Are A Viable Challenger To the Caster Throne

    Edwin Rodriguez
    25 Mar 2015 | 1:17 pm
    In the first part of this series discussing the differences between a traditional kingpin swivel caster and a kingpinless caster, we sought to establish the reasons why kingpin swivel casters have led the heavy-duty caster market for many decades. Like any long-ruling monarch, we also learned about the idiosyncrasies that make the reign of the kingpin swivel caster vulnerable to challengers. Compared to its kingpin counterpart, the kingpinless swivel section provides a simpler design that also provides some definitive reliability benefits. This component is constructed of a top plate with a…
