  • Making Space: Housing London

    Being Brunel

    17 Nov 2014 | 3:30 am
    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog So there’s this new idea: Let’s sort out London’s housing crisis by building on top of existing public service buildings. At a glance this approach makes a lot of sense- one of the main reasons developers aren’t building millions of places to live in London is because it’s not exactly teaming with free space. And if the public sector is savvy enough- they can get a new building out of it too: Read the White Paper Here Before I continue and share my opinions that no-one asked for to an internet that couldn’t care;…

    Who knew about Blu-ray discs? One of the best ways to store high-definition movies and television shows because of their high-density data storage, Blu-ray discs also improve the performance of solar cells, according to a new study. Researchers have discovered that the pattern of information written on a Blu-ray disc -- and it doesn't matter if it's Jackie Chan's 'Supercop' or the cartoon 'Family Guy' -- works very well for improving light absorption across the solar spectrum.

    24 Nov 2014 | 4:01 am
    Earlier this month, President Obama asked the U. S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to classify the Internet as a public utility in order to preserve net neutrality.  While in principle the FCC is an independent regulatory authority, it usually takes the President seriously, and this proposed action led to both cheers and boos.  The cheering came from mostly liberal observers who see threats to the Internet coming from internet service providers (ISPs), who have expressed a desire to discriminate (either favorably or unfavorably) among their customers.  One form of…

    This year's Nobel Prize in physics went to three Japanese scientist-engineers who developed the first practical high-efficiency blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs).  Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano, and Shuki Nakamura received the awardfor the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes which has enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources."  Shortly after the award was announced, former University of Illinois researcher Nick Holonyak made the news by complaining publicly that the Japanese work would not have been possible without the invention of the red LED, which he and…

    In discussions about the ethics of technology, every now and then you hear something like the following argument:  "Technology is neutral—it's just people who are good or bad."  Or take the bumper sticker favored by some members of the National Rifle Association:  "Guns don't kill people—people do."  While there is a measure of truth in this idea, it applies better to some technologies than to others.  It doesn't make much sense to apply it to the gas chambers used by the Nazis to kill Jews at Auschwitz, for instance.  So those who use this argument as a…

    The commercial space flight business suffered a one-two punch last week.  On Tuesday, an unmanned rocket carrying supplies for the International Space Station and launched by Orbital Sciences Inc. failed a few seconds after launch, falling back to the launch pad and exploding to make a spectacular nighttime video that must have been shown on every TV outlet in the U.

  • Do Not Sit Here: The Exploding Airbag Recall

    27 Oct 2014 | 3:54 am
    Airbags are a required safety feature on cars sold in the U. S. since at least 1998.  They have undoubtedly saved lives, especially in situations where the driver or passengers neglected to use seatbelts.  So whatever else we say about them, we should bear in mind that overall, cars are probably safer with airbags than without them.  But only if the airbags themselves are safe.  And lately, some drivers have found that the airbag cure was much worse than the accident disease.Over a hundred injuries and at least two fatalities have been attributed to defective airbags made…

    Self-driving cars was something that seemed very far-fetched when I first read Google was seriously investing in pursuing that idea as a commercially viable product (Google’s Self Driving Car – 2010 post). I quickly became convinced they were right. I still think it is questionable if they will succeed (the political issues may well be even more difficult than technical ones). But the chances of success seem reasonable and the investment in research could provide a huge payoff. Google’s self driving cars have driven 700,000 miles without an accident already; which is amazing.

They do find a larger portion of people that are not getting a great return on their investment in higher education. That could well indicate students studying certain majors and perhaps some people with less stellar academic skills would be better off economically skipping college.

  • Basics of analog modulation

    Lee Teschler
    26 Nov 2014 | 8:41 am
    By David Herres When you modulate a signal, you are varying one or more properties of a periodic waveform, called the carrier signal, with another signal, the modulating signal, that contains information to be transmitted. Typically the modulating signal has a lower frequency than the carrier. Modulation is applicable for combining two or more signals. The lower frequency information wave is said to modulate the higher frequency carrier wave. By this it is meant that changes in amplitude of the lower frequency wave cause the higher frequency energy to change in amplitude, frequency or phase.

  • New compact encoder for heavy industrial uses

    Miles Budimir
    25 Nov 2014 | 11:02 am
    The new Leine & Linde model PSE 923 encoder can meet the needs of the steel, mining, and heavy equipment industries. Its compact size offers superior performance than much larger solutions, making it practical for a wider variety of applications.  The foundation of the 900 encoder series is a solid aluminum housing incorporating bearings that are twice the size of competitive designs. The optimized housing design is in some cases less than one third the size and weight of competing products, without compromising resistance to potentially destructive environmental conditions.

  • The Qingzang Tibet Railway

    admin
    3 Nov 2014 | 7:04 pm
    The Qingzang Railway (also known as Qinghai-Tibet Railway) is the world’s highest railway and a culmination of the long-held Chinese dream of connecting China to Tibet. This railway line was built to ease the travel and to also provide a passageway for minerals from Tibet to the Chinese mainland. The average elevation of this bridge is between 3000 and 4000 meters above the sea level. Some of the highest mountains rise out of this region and the area is fenced by snowy mountains that Tibetans sometimes refer to as ‘the land of snows’. Given the high altitude and the unforgiving the…
  • Project Spotlight: The Durban Landfill Gas To Electricity Project

    29 Apr 2014 | 8:34 pm
    For several years, South Africa has battled with its high emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG). The country has an abundance of coal reserves, which it relies on heavily for energy. Another major contributor of GHG is the industrial sector which is fundamental in the country’s economic activities. The government of South Africa went on to map a renewable energy strategy which included a target of generating more electricity from renewable source. Landfills are the most used solution in South Africa to get rid of wastes. Each year a million tons of residential and industrial wastes are…
  • 9 Famous engineering mistakes

    admin
    15 Feb 2014 | 12:03 pm
    Engineers are often prone to making mistakes. That is why we constantly have to check and double-check everything that we do. It is this type of keen focus on what we do that allowed generations of past engineers to create some of the most remarkable engineering projects.  However, details are sometimes overlooked, numbers misrepresented or even units misread.  While some of these mistakes are miniscule and can be corrected, history has witnessed some colossal oversights that led to huge disasters and in some cases, popular travel destinations. The Leaning Tower of Pisa One of the…

    When you are start looking to buy land or a house your first decision is finding the right real estate agent. Your second decision should be finding the right architect. An good architect can help you understand both the physical aspects of the site and the regulatory aspects. The first situation is buying land. To pick the right piece of land you need to evaluate the site for the type of building(s) that you want to place on it. Will it fit in the land, the setbacks, the height restrictions and the area requirements. Are there any floodplains, wetlands, trees or easements that will inhibit…
  • Solar Hot Water Radiant Heat

    Anthony Ries
    8 Oct 2014 | 8:21 am
    I was recently asked about heating a home with a radiant floor heating system that utilized solar hot water. This seems a counterintuitive at first since the sun only shines during the day and it shines for less than 12 hours during some of the coldest times of the year. However, we have to remember one of the key concepts of passive design: thermal mass. So it is possible to do when the home is designed for it. Key factors to keep in mind: Thermal mass. This system works best with a 4-6 inch concrete slab with some insulation beneath to help regulate the concrete temperature. The thermal…
  • Setting up a Remodel Project in Revit

    Anthony Ries
    8 Oct 2014 | 8:21 am
    There are many things to consider when choosing a software platform. One of the main things I look for is that the software doesn’t limit what I want to do, that is, it shouldn’t get in the way of design. Said another way it should enable, not limit, your imagination. Along those lines come making it easy to set up a drawing in a way that is simple and makes sense. Not every project starts from scratch. A fair number are remodels and renovations of an existing structure. Revit makes it easy to phase a project between existing, demo and new construction. The great thing is that it does…

What’s this less glamorous resource? Trash — buried, decaying, we-don’t-ever-want-to-see-that-stuff-again trash.

  • Making Space: Housing London

    thomasmichaelwallace
    17 Nov 2014 | 3:30 am
    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog So there’s this new idea: Let’s sort out London’s housing crisis by building on top of existing public service buildings. At a glance this approach makes a lot of sense- one of the main reasons developers aren’t building millions of places to live in London is because it’s not exactly teaming with free space. And if the public sector is savvy enough- they can get a new building out of it too: Read the White Paper Here Before I continue and share my opinions that no-one asked for to an internet that couldn’t care;…

  • Seeing The Light: A Circuit For Interfacing With Ambient Light Sensors

    12 Nov 2014 | 5:00 am
    We built a smart mailbox, as related in an article, that had an ambient light sensor to detect when the mailbox door was opened. In that project we used a Vishay ambient light sensor (Mouser Part #782-TEPT4400) that acts very much like an NPN transistor, in fact the part is also referred to as a phototransistor. The difference being (when compared to a normal bipolar junction transistor) that instead of needing a base lead to setup the bias voltage, photons provide energy at the base-collector junction to turn the transistor on, thus allowing current flow from collector-to-emitter. In that…
  • Don’t Leave Your Pins Floating

    28 Oct 2014 | 11:21 am
    When you are just starting off in electronics, there are many design pitfalls that can lead to hours of frustrating troubleshooting. I highlighted the importance of troubleshooting in this earlier blog post regarding my work on the automated energy harvester. Many times these faults are fixed with a very simple tweak to the circuit design or component selection. One of the most basic of the faults is the infamous “floating pin” or “floating input” that can affect the I/O pins of digital integrated circuits. To best explain a floating input and how it can negatively…
  • Analog Inputs In a Digital Only World

    I am going to share a trade secret with you today. It’s a common practice (or at least it was) but seems to have been lost to many judging by the questions I have been asked recently. Did you know you could read an analog signal even if you only have digital inputs on your microcontroller or single board computer? Or what if you ran out of analog pins on your Arduino? You can, and all you need is a simple resistor and capacitor. Welcome to the magical world of RC timing circuits! The secret lies in the fact that it takes a finite amount of time for a capacitor to charge and discharge,…
  • Give Your Next OSHW Project Some Android Love

    22 Sep 2014 | 2:58 pm
    Android, iOS tablets, and smartphones revolutionized the idea of the User Interface (UI). These devices are intuitive, powerful, and omnipresent in our daily lives. So instead of reinventing the wheel for a slick UI to control your next OSHW project, why not simply build the interface as an app? Typically the answer is that creating apps isn't quite as simple as using apps. But creating an Android app to control your latest OSHW invention can be pretty darn simple thanks to MIT’s App Inventor. In my opinion, it is one of the best-kept secrets in the maker community.

I will admit it, guilty as charged. Picking the right Open Source Hardware tools and platforms is similar to the picking the right hand tool from our toolbox. Though there is typically enough crossover of functionality between the different types of tools, some are better suited for certain tasks than others.

    While dealing with any kind of measurements, it is important to identify the possible sources of error. It helps to maintain the accuracy of physical measurement in both fields and labs. There are mainly three possible sources of errors. Instrumental The imperfection or faulty adjustment of the measurement instrument may cause errors. Such errors, produced from the equipment, is known as instrumental error. Example: a long or short tape, an angle measurement instrument without proper adjustment. Personal Error may also arise due to imperfection of human sight in observation and of touch in…

    It often is surprising to people to learn of the multitude of applications for industrial casters – uses that might never have come to mind in spite of being in plain view. That’s because, generally speaking, the signature of a well-built, heavy-duty caster is that it is neither seen nor heard – casters quietly do their job while helping improve manufacturing productivity. Few examples epitomize this unique material-handling role than in a very unexpected application – pneumatic caster wheels, mounted beneath a stage that will support a halftime show during a Thanksgiving Day football…
