  • Materials Other Than Silicon for Next Generation Electronic Devices

    Engineering News -- ScienceDaily
    27 Aug 2014 | 9:25 am
    Silicon has been the most successful material of the 20th century, with major global industries and even a valley named after it. But silicon may be running out of steam for high performance/low power electronics. As silicon strains against the physical limits of performance, could a material like InGaAs provide enough of an improvement over silicon that it would be worth the expense in new equipment lines and training to make the switch worthwhile?

  • Sorting cells with sound waves

    26 Aug 2014 | 5:57 pm
    Researchers have devised a new way to separate cells by exposing them to sound waves as they flow through a tiny channel. Their device, about the size of a dime, could be used to detect the extremely rare tumor cells that circulate in cancer patients' blood, helping doctors predict whether a tumor is going to spread.

    The fume hood after the explosion. Credit: University of MinnesotaOn June 17, an explosion in a chemistry lab at the University of Minnesota injured graduate student Walter Partlo. He was making trimethylsilyl azide, starting with 200 g of sodium azide. The incident originated in lack of hazard awareness, school representatives say, and the department response focuses on identifying hazardous processes and communication. The synthesis was based on previously published methods, with some alterations—in particular, the solvent Partlo used was polyethylene glycol (PEG), says chemistry…

    When Michael Brown was shot and killed a little after noon on August 9 in Ferguson, Missouri by police officer Darren Wilson, several eyewitnesses saw what happened.  Autopsy results have been released that reveal Brown was shot six times.  Word that Brown was unarmed at the time spread fast and for several days, Ferguson was the scene of angry protests by day and unrest by night, to which police responded with tear gas and curfews.  On August 18, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon called in the state's national guard troops, which were withdrawn after three days of increasing…
  • "Survivor" On Mars: Poor Ratings Could Be Deadly

    Reality shows on TV claim to present life as it happens.  Never mind that the kind of life that happens on these shows is something that most of us would pay money to avoid:  getting tossed into a wilderness with next to nothing to live on, or being expelled from the show altogether by a vote of your peers.  But reality shows continue in various forms to be one of the more popular TV genres. A Dutch nonprofit startup called Mars One is planning a reality show that is literally out of this world.  The organization's plan is to send four astronauts—two men and two…

    Just before I wrote this, I learned that a cease-fire negotiated last Friday between Israel and Hamas collapsed after less than two hours.  For the last few weeks, the Gaza-based Hamas organization has been shooting Grad-type rockets at Israel, and Israel has lately been responding both with aerial attacks and ground action in Gaza itself.  By many reports, the damage done by the rockets fired from Gaza into Israel would be much worse if it were not for Israel's air-defense system called Iron Dome.  According to the Israeli Defense Force (IDF), Iron Dome succeeds in…

  • Port of Oakland Soil Stabilization

    25 Aug 2014 | 10:30 pm
    The giant straddle cranes that load and unload cargo from the container ships at the Port of Oakland apply a fairly concentrated load along their wheel path. Over time, the wheel path area has settled, creating a hazard to crane operators, cargo, and all port workers. URETEK ICR and their affiliate EagleLIFT were called in to use their patented geopolymer technology to stabilize and lift the subgrade, restoring the wheel path to it's original elevation.

  • Stop Sign Mistake Proofing

    22 Aug 2014 | 11:53 pm
    This is a pretty cool example of using technology to prevent problems. The video shows a system that cascades a sheet of water and displays a stop sign directly in the path of trucks ready to crash into a tunnel (because the truck is too tall). The driver had ignored several less obvious signals that they were headed for danger. This is an application of one of my favorite management (and industrial engineering) concepts: mistake proofing. As I have stated before, often it is really mistake making more difficult rather than mistake proofing. This truck driver ignored the first several…
  • DIY Air Filters for Your House

  • iPhone Addition as Alternative to Expensive Ophthalmology Equipment

    17 Jul 2014 | 8:31 pm
    Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have developed two inexpensive adapters that enable a smartphone to capture high-quality images of the front and back of the eye. The adapters make it easy for anyone with minimal training to take a picture of the eye and share it securely with other health practitioners or store it in the patient’s electronic record. The researchers see this technology as an opportunity to increase access to eye-care services as well as to improve the ability to advise on patient care remotely.

  • Capacitance: Friend and Foe

    Lee Teschler
    27 Aug 2014 | 2:45 pm
    By David Herres Capacitance is everywhere. Electronic circuits make use of this phenomenon of the physical universe because of it can be used to separate dc from high-frequency signals, to store electrostatic energy, to block reverse-polarity current flow, and for many other applications. The other side of the coin is that unwanted, or parasitic, capacitance becomes increasingly problematic at the higher frequencies necessary for contemporary high-bandwidth connectivity. Engineers have developed techniques for mitigating parasitic capacitance in transmission lines by, for example, employing…

    As you might expect, as architects who design custom homes (among other things) we get a lot of interesting requests. Frequently they come from a client with the preface “I know this is a strange request”. But hey, you’re doing a custom home for a reason, get those spaces that you want. Here are ten of the more memorable: 10. Indoor/outdoor swimming pool 9. Garages with lifts and floors for car stacking 8. Special raised walkways for cats 7. Oversized rooms with walls that could be added later to create hidden rooms 6. Gun range in the basement 5. Slide from the main floor…
  • Double Skin Façade

    Anthony Ries
    20 Aug 2014 | 4:39 pm
    Most buildings that we see are single skin. In low rise structures the outside will be stucco, siding, some type of masonry etc. In taller buildings the exterior veneer is often more varied and includes glass, metals and other materials. A method of construction that is starting to become more popular is a double skin façade. This is exactly what it sounds like; there are two ‘skins’ to the building. These layers can be within less than a foot of each other or far enough apart to allow a person to pass between the two. Not only can this construction method be very interesting visually,…

  • Staples or Nails? Choosing the Right Fastener for Wall and Roof Sheathing

    Dean Dalvit
    20 Aug 2014 | 4:39 pm
    We are often asked by contractors if they can substitute framing staples instead of nails for their wall and roof sheathing fasteners. There is no easy universal answer to this question because the location of the project may place it in a high wind or seismic zone that may require special engineering for the fastening systems. However, according to the International Building Code, there is a fastening schedule under Table 2304.9.1 (2006 IBC) that lists the approved equivalent fasteners for nails and staples in a wide array of assemblies not subject to these special engineering conditions.

  • 3 Reasons Why People Think Engineers are Jerks. And Why They are Wrong

    Craig the Rocket Scientist
    18 Aug 2014 | 12:18 pm
    Put Title “People don’t like engineers because engineers are always the ones who bring up all the problems.” When my manager told me this I had to take a moment to calm myself down and not be offended. After all, this manager was a fellow engineer, and a good friend, so I knew it wasn’t meant as an insult. But still the comment hurt: How could people not like engineers? It is true though; engineers tend to point out problems before they become apparent to others, and have a few tendencies which can bother our non-engineer colleagues and acquaintances. But many of these…

With such a device, interplanetary missions to such places as the moon, Mars, and even the moons of Jupiter all seem possible!

    There is a lot of advice out there about how to prepare for an engineering degree. What should you be doing? What shouldn’t you be doing? Most of what I’ve heard has been about working hard, going to lectures and doing lots of math. I’m not going to knock any of those things—because they are all very important–but I don’t think they’re the only pieces of advice to keep in mind. If you’re considering (or have signed up for) an engineering degree we can probably assume that you’re already prepared to work hard and go to lectures. You’re…

  • Researchers find security flaws in backscatter X-ray scanners

    19 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    A team of researchers from the University of California, San Diego, the University of Michigan, and Johns Hopkins University have discovered several security vulnerabilities in full-body backscatter X-ray scanners deployed to U.S. airports between 2009 and 2013. In laboratory tests, the team was able to successfully conceal firearms and plastic explosive simulants from the Rapiscan Secure 1000 scanner.  The team was also able to modify the scanner operating software so it presents an “all-clear” image to the operator even when contraband was detected.

    What have you accomplished over the past four weeks? Made your own biodiesel? Miniaturized a pollution particle counter? Created an app for the color-blind? No? Then you’re probably not in the COSMOS program. The California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science (COSMOS) is a four-week residential summer program designed for talented and motivated high school students – students so motivated they’re not afraid to dream big, technologically speaking, to take on some of the world’s most difficult problems. The program celebrated its 10th anniversary this…
  • Matrix Stiffness is an Essential Tool in Stem Cell Differentiation

    11 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    Bioengineers at the University of California, San Diego have proven that when it comes to guiding stem cells into a specific cell type, the stiffness of the extracellular matrix used to culture them really does matter. The research team, led by bioengineering professor Adam Engler, also found that a protein binding the stem cell to the hydrogel is not a factor in the differentiation of the stem cell as previously suggested. The protein layer is merely an adhesive, the team reported Aug. 10 in the advance online edition of the journal Nature Materials.

    Being Brunel | The Civil Engineering Blog I love my indie games; there’s something about the smaller studios that gives their creations so much more life than their AAA counterparts. My latest fancy has been the superb Transistor, which you should probably go and play right now (work be damned). As I made my way though Supergiant’s wonderfully crafted world, however, I found myself thinking about the structural engineering behind it. You see, one of the core motifs of Transistor is the notion of self adapting structures: Buildings and infrastructure that alter their states, with…

    We’ve all been there. We grab our lunch, sit down, inhale it like like we haven’t seen food in years, and then stare blankly at a reflection of our sleep deprived eyes in our computer monitor or smartphone. Thus begins an internal civil war: I could cruise Facebook, re-watch Sportscenter highlights, or I could do something to further myself? Sometimes we just flat out choose to do what we really want to do instead of making any sort of a realistic effort to do something to benefit ourselves.

    Let’s face it; we’ve all tried to use the wrong tool for the job at hand at least once in our lives. Using a hammer on screws comes to mind as the most common misuse of tools and technology. 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.

    Tacoma Narrows Bridge.  Apollo 1.  Space Shuttle Challenger.  Chernobyl.  Mars Climate Orbiter.  Throughout human history failure has been a bittersweet fact of life, and engineering is not exempt from this truth. Despite our best efforts (and sometimes, because of the lack thereof), engineering failures occur. The aforementioned examples are just some of the most highly publicized engineering disasters of the last 75 years. Sometimes, as we push the envelope in pursuit of success, things go horribly wrong.

    Open Source Hardware (OSHW) has truly changed my life. It allowed me to launch my own business. How so, you might ask? Well let’s take a little stroll down memory lane, shall we? 17 years ago I took my first steps into the world of electronics and engineering as an intern at the U.S. Naval Academy. At the end of my first year I remember being tasked with a rather simple project, a PIC microcontroller based solution that would monitor the ambient temperature and adjust louvers and a fan to regulate temperature accordingly. To make a long story short, my project was plagued with design…

I fondly remember many nights and weekends spent with my Arduino Diecimila. It was my first Arduino, and my first prototyping platform since a BASIC Stamp-based platform I acquired back in college. A lot has changed in those ten years and the Arduino platform has gone from a tinkerer’s ‘gadget’ to an electronics design platform in it’s own right. Many…

This revolutionary change is very exciting for a computer geek like me. Some of you may ask, “Ok, so what exactly is a generic Top-Level Domain?”, Wikipedia states that: A generic top-level domain (gTLD) is one of the categories of top-level domains (TLDs) maintained by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) for use in the Domain Name System of the Internet.

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.

    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…
