  • Denver student hit in chest with jet of flaming methanol

    17 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    New incident, same message: Don’t pour alcohol anywhere near a possible flame. At a press briefing yesterday, Chemical Safety & Hazard Investigation Board investigators spoke about what they’ve learned so far regarding an incident at a Denver high school that sent four students to the hospital on Monday: The teacher lit a small pool of methanol to demonstrate its flame properties. When the flame didn’t rise as high as desired, he added more methanol from a 4 L container. The fire flashed back into the container, then emerged as a “jet fire” that traveled 15 ft…
  • Is combustible dust a concern for research labs?

    16 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    In last week’s exploding pianos post, the experiments focused on the addition of flour to a theatrical “flash pot.” How important the flour was to the ensuing explosion was never resolved. Flour is, in fact, a combustible material–along with sugar, grains, tobacco, plastics, wood, paper, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, dyes, coal, and metals. The U.S. Chemical Safety & Hazard Investigation Board has been warning about combustible dust hazards in industry for years. A CSB report on combustible dust issued in 2006 recommended that the Occupational Safety & Health…

    By now, almost everybody with a cellphone and a car knows that it's a bad idea to text while you're driving.  But people still do it, and some of those people die in text-related car crashes and take innocent victims with them.  What if technology existed that simply prevented people from texting from a moving car at all?  Wouldn't that solve the problem?Scott Tibbetts thought so.  Tibbets and his company Katasi were profiled in a recent New York Timesarticle for developing a promising technology that would simply block texting from any phone that was in a moving…
  • A Close Shave With Plutonium Foam

    8 Sep 2014 | 3:38 am
    Plutonium is nasty stuff.  It's highly radioactive, so breathing plutonium dust is not a good way to live to a ripe old age.  And did I mention it's an essential ingredient in most thermonuclear weapons?  For these and many other reasons, nuclear waste contaminated with plutonium is not something you just toss in the ordinary trash can.  That is why, at great trouble and expense, the U. S. Department of Energy built the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) about fifteen years ago, a few miles outside Carlsbad, New Mexico.  It is the nation's only federally operated…
  • The Toll of Patent Trolls

    1 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am
    Inventions and engineers go together like songs and musicians, and consequently every engineer should know something about patents.  The practice of patenting inventions to give the inventor a temporary monopoly as a reward for ingenuity is something that most countries do today, and by and large, we are probably better off with patent systems than without them.  But patent systems can be abused, and some of the biggest abusers of the patent system in the U. S. are "nonpracticing entities" (NPEs), otherwise known as patent trolls, as pointed out in William J. Watkins' recent book…

  • "Survivor" On Mars: Poor Ratings Could Be Deadly

    18 Aug 2014 | 3:40 am
    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…

But I am not familiar with any drilling companies here in the US that can record and report this type of data. Does anyone use this technology in their practice? What kind of equipment is required on the drill rig to collect this data? Leave a comment, or tweet @geoprac. [Source:…

    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.

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.

Plant Breeders Release First ‘Open Source Seeds’ A group of scientists and food activists is launching a campaign Thursday to change the rules that govern seeds.

Scientists create wonderful products to improve our lives: vaccines, antibiotics, etc.; if we don’t use them or misuse them it is a great loss to society. There is also great value in genetic enhanced seeds and thus plants (through natural human aided processes such as breeding and providing good genetic material over a wide area – distances that would not be covered naturally, at least not in a time that helps us much).

    A recent report from the New York Fed looks at the economic benefits of college. While there has been a great deal of talk about the “bubble” in higher education the Fed finds college is very wise economically for most people. 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.

    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…

  • Fast Renderings in the Cloud

    Kellie Saylor
    2 Sep 2014 | 11:02 pm
    If you don’t have a rendering farm at your disposal, chances are a nice high quality rendering in Revit will require hours or even days depending on the complexity.  Additionally, the computer used for the rendering will be somewhat tied up as its resources are occupied with the rendering process.  Fortunately, with Autodesk 360 you can render in the cloud in a fraction of the time and without tying up your computer.  To use Autodesk 360 you just open the 3D view you want to render, then click “Render in Cloud” in the View ribbon menu.  I compared the two rendering methods using the…

  • Can I Re-Use My Existing Building?

    jon@evstudio.com
    29 Aug 2014 | 4:14 pm
    With the increased demand for a more sustainable way to use buildings, adaptive reuse of existing buildings has become a viable economic solution. Adaptive reuse consists of improving, remodeling, and adding to an existing structure for either different or more extensive spatial requirements. The first step in deciding whether or not your building is a candidate for adaptive reuse is analysis. When upgrading and remodeling a building, some parts of the building may need to be updated to the current building codes and standards. This comes into play heavily with the addition of disability…

    Craig the Rocket Scientist

    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!

  • How To Prepare For An Engineering Degree

    Chris Walker

    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…

    Utility master plans are one of the most critical tools for campus infrastructure systems. Without a master plan in place, campus systems are flying blind, reacting to increased demands on the utility systems as they come. Each rushed decision impacts the next and creates cascading effects. The good news: With a little upfront planning today, utility master plans can help campuses achieve big paybacks tomorrow — and can update systems to run more efficiently and cleanly. What Is a Master Plan and Why Do I Need One? Simply put, a utility master plan (UMP) is a comprehensive study of existing…

  • LEED Leads to Big Energy Savings for Military Buildings

    The topic of energy savings for the military isn’t new, but in light of recent budget cuts for the U.S. Army, there’s a renewed focus on lowering operations costs for new and existing National Guard facilities. Top it off with a government mandate to design all new National Guard buildings to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) standards, and that can lead to big energy savings for military buildings. When a building achieves LEED certification, it demonstrates that it meets environmental goals for sustainability, which inherently lowers operations costs in the…

    Leading change and getting others to be engaged and enthusiastic about upcoming changes can often be very difficult. The way to implement change is different for every engineer, however there are some key steps which should always be done, regardless of your skill and style. Due to the vast number of projects I always seem to be working on I find it extremely helpful to formalize the change management process into a checklist document. This is an example of the kind of change procedures that you should consider using in your own perosnal change management checklist: Update maintenance…
  • Increase Chemical Plant Profitability – Part 3 – Production

    Russ - Editor-in-Chief
    7 Sep 2014 | 2:36 am
    This is Part 3 of the How to Increase Chemical Plant Profitability series. One of the most popular methods to increase plant profitability is to increase the production capacity of the site without using any additional equipment. This method is most common amongst production of commodities where the sale of the product is almost guaranteed. This works in two ways: Direct increase in profit from increased quantity of sales Efficiency increase through dilution of fixed losses The first part is fairly self explanatory, so I won’t dwell on that but part two only works without replicating…
  • Pulp and Paper Production – The Kraft Process Overview

    Russ - Editor-in-Chief
    29 Jan 2013 | 6:30 pm
    The kraft process is a process for creating wood pulp out of wood, for use in paper production. Unlike many other chemical engineering processes, the kraft process is not named after its inventor, but instead derived from the German word kraft, meaning “strong.” This name was chosen by the inventor of the process himself, Carl Ferdinand Dahl, who intended to market the superior strength of the paper created from this process. A resident of Danzig, Kingdom of Prussia (present-day Germany), Dahl invented the process in 1879, and had himself awarded a U.S. patent for the invention on April…
  • Industrial Gold Extraction Process Overview

    22 Jan 2013 | 6:24 pm
    Gold is one of the most highly valued metals today, as it has been since the dawn of human civilization. Its rich yellowish color evokes the very idea that we almost always relate to it: wealth. Gold had been used for several millennia as currency in the past, with the United States being the last country to use the gold standard in 1932. Despite the takeover of fiat currency in virtually every jurisdiction, gold remains of high economic value. This fact is particularly evidenced by the usage of newly mined gold: 50 percent goes into jewelry, 40 percent into financial investments, and 10…
  • Ostwald Process Overview – Industrial Ammonia Production

    15 Jan 2013 | 8:26 pm
    Nitric acid (HNO3), also known as “spirit of niter,” is a very strong acid. Between 75-80% of industrial nitric acid is used as a raw material in the production of fertilizer. It is also used in niche industries such as rocket fuel, woodworking (where it is used to artificially age wood) and cleaning stainless steel. It remains an important chemical, however, in the laboratory as it is used as an analytical reagent. The Ostwald Process The Ostwald process is the procedure for making nitric acid. It was patented in 1902 by Wilhelm Ostwald, a Nobel Prize–winning German chemist. Curiously…

    Bleach can solve a few more problems than the barbecue stain on Tim Mcgraw’s white t-shirt. I can remember as a kid, the bottle of bleach my grandmother use to keep on her washing machine. The branding of Clorox is classic and often nostalgic for many. Clorox made its debut in the U.S. in 1910, but didn’t begin to hit its stride till around 1913. In the spring of 1913 five businessmen invested $100 each to found America’s first commercial liquid bleach factory. It was originally called the Electro-Alkaline Company, but due to the popularity of Clorox as a product they…

    DON’T TRY TO INNOVATE BY YOURSELF AT HOME! Or anywhere else. When we think of genius inventors, we’re still inclined to envision the mad scientist in his lab, or the lone Einstein changing the world as we know it. But the myth of the solitary genius inventor (Einstein collaborated frequently) no longer serves the tech community. In its place is a new understanding of collaboration, in pairs and groups, as the next big competitive advantage. In fact, chances are that a solo innovation effort will not be as successful as a partnered one. A new book, “Powers of Two” by Joshua Wolf…

This revolutionary change is very exciting for a computer geek like me.

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.
