  • Waste explosion at Texas Tech

    Jyllian Kemsley
    26 Feb 2015 | 3:30 am
    On Feb. 2, a glass waste bottle exploded in a Texas Tech University teaching laboratory, injuring three undergraduate students and a graduate teaching assistant. TTU has nowposted its investigation results online. In short, a nitric acid wash step was eliminated from the lab but the written instructions were not revised (I don’t know how this was communicated–with a verbal “skip step X”?). Nitric acid waste then wound up in a bottle with methanol and dimethylglyoxime, reactions ensued, pressure built up, and the bottle exploded when a student later tried to open it.
  • Flammables cabinets: Metal or wood?

    Jyllian Kemsley
    23 Feb 2015 | 2:30 am
    When choosing a flammables storage cabinet, it might seem natural to choose metal over wood. But it appears that wood deserves a closer look. A reader sent me this video, saying that he found it surprising and thought it might be useful information for the chemistry community. The video shows comparison tests of metal versus and flammables cabinets–and the wooden cabinets appear to do a much better job of protecting their contents from fire than the metal ones. According to SciMatCo, which makes wooden cabinets and produced the video, the temperature inside a metal cabinet rapidly…

  • Piranha solution explosions

    Jyllian Kemsley
    16 Jan 2015 | 4:30 am
    From the C&EN archives, but I believe still relevant today: April 23, 1990, page 2 SIR: We wish to report two violent explosions experienced with a sample of “piranha solution” used routinely in many laboratories to clean badly soiled glass frits and other surfaces. At Berkeley an explosion occurred in a bottle of this mixture that had been stored for several days. In this case, the solution was prepared by carefully mixing approximately 150 mL concentrated sulfuric acid with 150 mL 30% hydrogen peroxide with cooling over 30 minutes. No difficulty was experienced during the…

    23 Feb 2015 | 4:14 am
    Later this week, on Feb. 26, the U. S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is going to vote on a proposal to enforce net neutrality.  Net neutrality, according to some, is the idea that all bits are created equal, and that communications firms using or operating parts of the Internet should not discriminate against or for certain types of services, providers, or customers.  If I could do one thing to help the FCC decide wisely on this proposal, I'd bring back Aristotle and ask him to explain to the commissioners what he means by egkrateia, which is usually translated as…

  • Passing of an Ethical Engineer

    9 Feb 2015 | 3:55 am
    For almost as long as I have been writing this blog, my wife's father Benjamin G. Simons has lived with us.  Ben passed away in our home on Saturday, Feb. 7, at the age of 89.  There is a branch of engineering ethics that uses "moral exemplars"—basically, good examples—as models of how ethical engineers should live.  Ben was one of these.Ben was a brick.  I use that word in two senses.  One sense is now archaic, but means something close to today's "cool dude."  When a character in Mark Twain called someone a brick, it meant that they were a good, reliable,…

    2 Feb 2015 | 3:39 am
    Google's traffic app called Waze allows users to tell each other about traffic-related issues such as construction zones, tie-ups, and speed traps.  It uses a phone's GPS system to locate an icon on a map of the area that everyone using Waze can see.  Google bought Waze from its Israeli developers for a billion dollars in 2013, and it is now one of the most popular free apps on Apple's rankings.  But the National Sheriffs' Association (NSA) is not happy about it.In a widely publicized statement, the NSA's Deputy Executive Director John Thompson said "we are . . . concerned this…
  • High Time for Satellite Tracking of All International Flights

    26 Jan 2015 | 3:28 am
    This coming March 8 will mark one year since Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared from radar en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing somewhere over the Indian Ocean.  The wreckage has never been found, although communications experts used some almost accidental satellite-transponder data to estimate the last known location of the plane.  At the time, I recall thinking that if I was an airline and owned a number of high-value mobile assets known as airliners, I would want some way of knowing where each one was every minute or so, anywhere in the world.   After all, the…

  • Bertha TBM Begins Moving

    18 Feb 2015 | 8:44 pm
    WSDOT reported that Bertha has slowly began moving again. It must tunnel through 20 feet of unreinforced concrete with its broken seal to break through into the rescue shaft. Once that happens, the repairs to her cutterhead can commence. The Seattle Tunnel Partners predict Bertha will overheat, as she did before stopping for repairs. If that occurs, they will stop tunneling to wait for the machine to cool before continuing. STP crews also chipped away at a Bertha-sized cut-out in the access shaft to make for a cleaner breakthrough. See video below. [Source: WSDOT and WSDOT YouTube Channel.
  • How to Use Thermal Integrity Profiling to Assess Soil Nail Integrity

    18 Feb 2015 | 8:43 pm
    National Driller magazine recently republished a paper by authors from GRL Engineers Inc. and Pile Dynamics Inc. (PDI) describing a demonstration project for the Texas Department of Transportation involving thermal integrity profiling (TIP) of soil nails. TIP involves using the thermal energy created by curing concrete to determine the shape of a grout or concrete body and the position of reinforcement within a grouted or concreted hole. It has been used successfully for QC of drilled shafts and auger cast piles. It can be performed in open access ports by lowering a thermal probe down the…
  • Viaduct Inspections Show Settlement Problems Long Before Tunneling

    18 Feb 2015 | 8:42 pm
    The Alaskan Way Viaduct tunneling project was in the news late last year when settlement of the Viaduct was reported during the dewatering efforts for the Bertha TBM rescue shaft. A recent post by WSDOT makes it clear that the settlement of the viaduct has been a problem for many years before the start of construction. The most recent round of monitoring by WSDOT began in 2001 after the completion of repairs to the the Viaduct following the Nisqually Earthquake. By 2006, a total of 4 3/4 inches of settlement had been recorded at one location. It appears that the rate of settlement is on the…

  • Steel Connection Selection Process

    Conrad Moulton
    25 Feb 2015 | 5:57 am
    There are many different methods used to determine steel connections. The AISC code – 14th edition states to use one half the maximum reaction for a steel beam to design connections. (That’s half the weight the beam will hold). This method of connection design is typically overly conservative and expensive. If we are talking residential construction then we really aren’t using steel to steel connections often. Actually this idea of fabricated steel on wood framed structures like a home or mixed material projects is something many engineers avoid. To some designers this idea…

    Shear Wall Panel Schedule While lateral load requirements have been a part of the International Residential Code since it’s inception, until recently, an actual lateral or shear wall design was not required in a set of construction documents for a single family residence in most jurisdictions.

  • Killer Views Lead to Killer Foundation Steps

    Alex Knuth
    24 Feb 2015 | 10:05 am
    Recently I did a field observation for the footing for a custom home in Genesee, Colorado. The first thing you notice as you walk over the stored pile of dirt to get to the project is the amazing views you have of the valley below, and the neighboring mountains on the horizon. The second thing you notice is the large steps that the foundation had to make in order to allow for the placement of this beautifully designed house to fit on the side of this mountain. EVstudio’s own Bill Myhren did a great job with the architecture as well as the structural engineering. As you can see below the…

  • What We Don’t Know About Composites CAN Kill Us!

    Craig the Rocket Scientist
    26 Feb 2015 | 8:27 am
    Composites materials, like carbon fiber, are a common occurrence today. You find them in everything from ski poles to car parts and even airplanes. Composite materials’ relatively light weight and unique strength properties make them a near miracle material. But do you want to know a secret? We don’t actually now that much about them. Specifically we don’t really understand how composites age, break down and fail. And that dirty little secret could get a lot of people killed. It’s shouldn’t be very surprising; composite materials work very differently than metals. But we still…
  • The Two Keys to Managing Change

    Chris Walker
    25 Feb 2015 | 12:20 pm
    Change is inevitable. No matter how much you plan, how many people you speak to before making decisions or how small your task or project is, change is inevitable. It may be frustrating, but change shouldn’t be something to worry about. Good engineers thrive in the real world of constraints, dynamic interactions and moving parts. Change is a part of the territory. Not being aware of the potential for change though, can be disastrous. Even the smallest, seemingly insignificant alteration can have significant consequences that delay (at best) or derail (at worst) a project. But change…

While I at first humored them and even applaud their attempts to get people talking about extraterrestrial colonization, I have grown skeptical of their judgment and wisdom and now believe they may actually hurt the fledging private space sector more than help it.

    Chris Walker

    Last week I wrote about the importance of investing in yourself. One of the best ways to do that is to attend formal training courses. Once you’ve identified a course that would be a good fit for you, usually you’ll need to convince your boss or training manager to pay for the course and give you the time to attend. Sometimes, that is easier said than done. If you’re having difficulty persuading your boss to let you attend a course, here are a few tips which might be helpful next time you have the conversation.

    It can be easy to get wrapped up in the project(s) you’re working on without paying attention to anything else going on in the engineering world around you. At some point, however, your project will end. You’ll move to do something different and take on a new challenge. To prepare for that moment, it’s important to stay up to date with the latest ideas and technologies in your field. You might also discover new approaches that help you in your current work. Here are two ways I try to make sure I keep up to date. Training No matter how knowledgeable or experience you are,…

  • An Engineering Portfolio

    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog Last year I got an email from an engineer called David. After seeing my embarrassment of a video about loving civil engineering, he wrote to tell me that he, too, loved civil engineering. But what he also did, was tell me about a project he’s been working on to share his career in the profession: an online engineering portfolio. As someone who is forever saying we should do more to share our work with the public; I was a little embarrassed to realise that the idea of a portfolio had never crossed my mind. It’s a simple thing; and so much…

    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog For those of you who don’t live London adjacent; the capital is remarkably close to getting its very own Garden Bridge- which is exactly what is sounds like: A tiny garden on a strip of artificial land straddling the Thames. While it remains controversial across the general public domain, the people who hate it the most- appear to be engineers. With one of the main drivers being the massive engineering firm Arup, the project has the shape of something I’ve said civil engineers should be doing- taking control and pioneering the development…

    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog One of the fun things about keeping a blog is that I get statistics about my readership. Alongside the somewhat expected visitor count, the wonderful way the internet works means that I also get to learn which countries people coming to my blog are form, and some of the sites that directed them to it. It’s a sort of feedback; to make it seem a little less like I’m pouring words into a black hole… Up until fairly recently sites also got data from the likes of Google about what their visitors were searching for when they found them.

    What Are Biofuels and Why Do They Matter? If you’ve watched the news lately, you’ve probably heard the term “biofuels” thrown around quite a bit. At its most basic definition, a biofuel is “a fuel derived directly from a living matter”. What is so great about biofuels? For starters, biofuels are increasingly becoming more significantly cost effective than fossil fuels. However, it hasn’t always been that way. In the early 1900’s, petroleum based fuel was considered to be more cost effective. Biofuels are a lot older than you might think.

  • 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…

I scoured the Internet for a good definition but never found one that really jived with my concept of IoT. There were many definitions but none exactly agreed with the next definition. The best was, surprisingly enough, from Wikipedia which defines IoT as “the…

    Ask anyone on the street about the leading cause of workplace injuries, and you’d be hard pressed to find many people who would foster an accurate guess. Often, it is the most visible of workplace accidents that gain the most attention – falls, strikes, vehicle accidents and entanglements with machinery are the ones most often cited, given their physical and lasting manifestations. You may be surprised to learn that, in fact, overexertion – a largely invisible, yet vexing issue for those experiencing its effects — is the leading cause of workplace injuries. It’s a problem that…
  • Whats the difference in Noise Reducing casters

    The old adage, “never judge a book by its cover,” applies, of course, to more than just books. In the manufacturing world, this is especially true – it is often the contribution of components that reside out of the spotlight that have the greatest impact on productivity, efficiency and ROI. The same, often, can be said for heavy-duty casters – particularly ones where engineering and technology have made some below-the-surface improvements that have a big impact on outward performance. With CASTERSHOX®, this feat of engineering has packed significant advances in noise…

    For centuries, industry has been guided by a smooth, slender track. Whether bearing the weight of the great iron horse trains that crisscrossed North America, or used more modestly to move cargo carts throughout vast manufacturing plants, track-guided transport is considered to be the lifeblood of many production and logistics operations. Ensuring that these loads make it to their eventual destination is often a “groovy” experience – specifically, the grooved heavy-duty wheels which contour to the track. There are three basic types of grooved industrial caster wheels which are commonly…

    Caster science has come up with a solution for almost every possible wheel-bound application. No matter the weight, terrain or cart, the right heavy-duty caster will almost invariably be a long-lasting and easy-to-maintain component of your manufacturing operation. However, no object is indestructible – and heavy-duty casters are no different. When used in a manner that is not recommended by the industrial caster manufacturer, caster failures can and will happen. That’s why it’s important to make sure you are aware of the environment your heavy-duty caster will be subject to, and that…

    Two resistors in series, 100 Ohms and 50 Ohms in values, are connected in series to a 5 Volts source. What is the voltage drop across each of the resistor? What is the total current I?Firstly, we need to draw the circuit to better understand it.Solution:I = \frac{V}{R}Ohm's LawCalculate the total resistance. Learn how to calculate total resistance here.R_T = R_1+R_2R_T = 100\Omega+50\OmegaR_T = 150\OmegaSolving for the total current,I_T = \frac{V}{R}I_T = \frac{5V}{150\Omega}I_T = 0.033333333333 Amperes = 33.333333333333x10^{-3} AmpsI_T = 33.33 mASolving for voltage drops across the…

    A 100-ohm resistor, 5mH inductor, and a 10uF capacitor are connected in series to a 7V (Volts), 1kHz (kiloHertz) source. Calculate the total reactance and impedance of the circuit.See how to get the equivalent reactance here. We need the equivalent reactance in order to calculate for the total impedance.Here is how to get the total impedance, if you do not know yet.Solution: Z_t = R + jX_{eq}Z_t = R + j(X_L - X_C)Z_t = 100\Omega + j(31.42\Omega - 15.92\Omega)Rectangular form: Z_t = 100\Omega + j15.5\OmegaPolar form: Z_t = 101.19\angle8.81^{\circ}\OmegaCheck below for more relevant sample…

  • Home Made Waterproofing Compound

    11 Feb 2015 | 9:52 am
    Today I’m here going to discuss about how to make waterproofing compound by self at the site during the construction with cheaply available materials. I know it has been a long time since my last article, and maybe you, who are following Techno Genome regularly know the reason behind that, anyways let us concentrate on today’s topic. First of all we have to understand what a Waterproofing Compound is, and why it is required in a Civil Engineering Construction works.ENTRANCE OF WATER IN BUILDINGA Waterproofing compound is nothing but a chemical in the form of liquid or powder which when…
  • Brickwor Quality Control

    11 Feb 2015 | 9:49 am
    Here I’ve listed the most important factors which are to be taken care of while doing Brickwork of any nature structural brickwork or face lifting works in brickwork for better appearance. These points mentioned below should always be taken care strictly in the site of construction for achieving a long lasting durable structure.The bricks should be of 1st class quality for structural works, or atleast of 2nd class quality in unavoidable circumstances, but those 2nd class bricks must posses atleast 60% of the field quality checks of bricks.The bricks should be immersed in water for a…

    Civil Engineering is vast field from Culverts to Dam , Buildings To Steel Bridges, so as so the Civil Engineering Materials, It includes Steel, Concrete, Timber, Aluminium, Glass etc. Steel Design is much easier in most of the cases than RCC Design in Structural Engineering. Civil Engineering Broadly has three main phase namely Planning – consisting of Drawing, Estimating etc. Structural Design consisting of Analysis of Structures and Design Of Structures and last of all Execution which means erecting the actual work according to the Planning and Designing. Structural Engineering has always…
  • Top 5 Concrete Problems Turning Catastrophic

    25 Sep 2014 | 1:00 pm
    The Top 5 Constructional Mistakes and Concrete Problems which can bring disastrous results if ignored are not the huge ones but very common in every construction work, which gets out of the notice of the Engineer-In-Charge in most of the cases. As I feel most of the bad construction takes places not due to the unwillingness of the Engineers, but mostly due to the lack of awareness about those small things which they take lightly and thinks they are of no major importance and will not affect the ultimate construction. I do partially agree with them to the fact that it will not harm the…
