  • Bioprinted 'play dough' capable of cell and protein transfer

    Engineering News -- ScienceDaily
    3 Jul 2015 | 4:26 am
    Scientists have developed a new technique allowing the bioprinting at ambient temperatures of a strong paste similar to 'play dough' capable of incorporating protein-releasing microspheres. The scientists demonstrated that the bioprinted material, in the form of a micro-particle paste capable of being injected via a syringe, could sustain stresses and strains similar to cancellous bone -- the 'spongy' bone tissue typically found at the end of long bones.

    A guest post by Ralph Stuart, secretary of the ACS Division of Chemical Health & Safety (DCHAS). A member of the DCHAS e-mail list recently pointed out to me a story in the Milwaukee Sentinel’s archives about a laboratory explosion in 1957. The story reported: Waukesha, Oct. 25 (AP) A Carroll College senior was reported in good condition Friday despite suffering injuries that led to the loss of his left eye after fluid, said to have been rocket fuel, blew up in his face. … The exploding test tube sent slivers of glass into [the student’s] face.

    A query from my inbox last week: Are there any safety resources for women scientists who are pregnant, other than MSDSs? The short answer to this question is that your best resources is likely to be the safety office at your school or workplace. Otherwise, the National Institute for Occupational Safety & Health has a page with information on reproductive health and the workplace, as does the University of California, Davis. Yale University says in its Chemical Hygiene Plan: Exposure to certain chemicals may adversely affect the fertility of the parents and may affect the developing fetus…

  • Residential Solar Energy: Power to How Many People?

    29 Jun 2015 | 3:56 am
    A friend of mine recently installed an array of solar panels (photovoltaic generation) on his roof.  It's part of an Austin Energy plan that makes it straightforward for well-heeled consumers to get a turnkey installation done.  After a stretch of sunny days he'll meet me for lunch and tell me how much power he sold to the utility that week.  I was reminded of this when I read a recent article by environmental writer Bill McKibben in The New Yorker.  Entitled "Power to the People," McKibben describes how residential solar-power installations such as the one at my friend's…

    When the spiritual leader of the largest division of the Christian faith says something about climate change and the problems of technological progress, engineers of all faiths and no faith should take notice.  Last Thursday, Pope Francis released his latest encyclical, Laudato Si', known in English as "On the Care of Our Common Home." Contrary to some reports, in the encyclical Pope Francis doesn't come out in favor of Marxism, though he does say that international efforts to control greenhouse-gas emissions have failed and that something stronger is needed.  And he doesn't say you…

    Last Friday, the U. S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced that it was planning to improve the way it keeps tabs on automakers and the safety of their products.  NHTSA administrator Mark Rosekind admitted that the changes were largely inspired by his agency's failure to catch the GM ignition switch problem early enough.  The defective switches on older-model small cars such as the Saturn Ion and the Chevy Cobalt could accidentally cut power to both the engine and the vehicle's airbags, and have been identified as the cause of over 100 deaths and 200…

Although it was designed nearly a century ago, the Robie House remains a prime example of modern residential architecture. Today’s Prairie Style homes include many…

    Although surveying with GPS can sometimes be frustrating with the lack of signal coverage, it is hands down the quickest and most efficient way to survey when it is working. When we use GPS, we tie into an established (and growing) cell network that has almost full GPS coverage on the eastern slope of Colorado. This means that we literally show up with a Leica GPS rover unit, start it up, and we are off and running (more or less). With the way we utilize the GPS rover we can easily shoot various off-site benchmarks and confirm vertical elevations in a matter of minutes. We can also obtain…

  • Why NASA Is Getting More Women Into STEM

    Chris Walker
    30 Jun 2015 | 1:55 pm
    It’s a longstanding problem in the engineering industry: Women are underrepresented and we all suffer as a result. According to a report from 2011, women hold less than 25% of STEM jobs in the US. That percentage hasn’t increased in more than a decade, despite college-educated women increasing their share of the overall workforce. But NASA isn’t content with the status quo and are taking steps to readdress the balance. Half of the astronauts class are women (for the first time ever) and NASA are intent on getting more women involved at all levels of the organization. In…
  • How to Cope in an Extroverted World

    Chris Walker
    25 Jun 2015 | 7:59 am
    If you’re an engineer reading this, there’s at least a 50-50 chance that you’re an introvert. You value time by yourself and often do your best work on your own. Even if you’re not, time on your own is important. It must be. Steve Wozniak said so. So how do you get things done in a world that’s increasingly open plan, teamwork focused and ultimately extroverted? Here are a three really simple (and surprisingly effective) tips to help you carve out some time and space to get work done on your own. Wear Headphones Even if you’re not listening to anything,…

  • Good Engineering is All About Fewer Choices, Not More

    Chris Walker
    17 Jun 2015 | 5:53 am
    One way of looking at engineering is to think of it as a never ending stream of choices to make–always creating, designing, improving, coming up with new ideas and new products. It seems like the list of options never ends. There is always something else we could do. There’s always an improvement to make or a feature to add. There are always options to choose between. But really, good engineering is all about limiting choice. Yes, we can acknowledge that there are a wealth of options available. Then, we can get on with the engineering and methodically work out which is the best…
  • What if SpaceX Was Evil?

    Craig the Rocket Scientist
    16 Jun 2015 | 7:20 am
    Usually when I talk about private space and the companies that are pursuing it I tend to fawn. It’s because I really believe they are the future. … But what if that future was… evil? Let’s be honest: any company that led by a cult-of-personality Internet billionaire who has the ability to launch objects into orbit and recover them wields incredible power. Is it really that hard to think that someone might abuse that power. Here’s just a couple of ways “Dark SpaceX” might become reality, however.

Will your facility be affected? Understanding the regulation can help you prepare for potential changes. Will you want to make the investments necessary to continue operating your plant over the long haul? Or will another solution make more sense? Regardless of the direction, attacking the issue early is vital. Recently, we conducted a webinar to examine several…
  • Integrating Combined Heat and Power into High-Rise Buildings

    Michael Dempsey
    9 Jun 2015 | 7:00 am
    Will a combined heat and power (CHP) unit work in your building? It’s worth the consideration. Typically, a high-rise building gets its electricity from a large utility power plant, supplemented by boilers to provide heat and chillers for cooling. CHP is a cogeneration system, where two forms of energy — electricity and heat — are generated from one source. An environmentally savvy choice, these systems can save money through efficiency, minimize energy waste and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Saving Money and Reducing Emissions Integrating a CHP unit into a high-rise building offers…

  • NASA’s New Composite Aircraft Could Be the First to Fly on Mars

    John Shury
    6 Jul 2015 | 12:08 am
    A prototype of the Preliminary Research Aerodynamic Design to Land on Mars, or Prandtl-m for short is planned to be ready for launch from a high altitude balloon later this year. The Prandtl–m will be released at about at 100,000 feet altitude, which will simulate the flight conditions of the Martian atmosphere. These tests could validate how the flying wing aircraft works, leading to modifications that will allow it to fold and deploy from a 3U CubeSat in the aeroshell of a future Mars rover. A CubeSat is a miniature satellite used for space research that is usually about four inches in…

  • Researchers Create New Self Healing Concrete Composite

    Steve Sherborne
    1 Jul 2015 | 10:05 pm
    In the human body, small wounds are easily treated by the body itself, requiring no further care. For bigger wounds to be healed, the body may need outside assistance. Concrete is like a living body, in that it can self-heal its own small wounds (cracks) as an intrinsic characteristic. However, cracks do not heal easily in conventional concrete due to its rather brittle nature, which calls into question the effectiveness of self-healing in conventional concrete materials with no control over crack formation. Robust self-healing composites called Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC) are…

Photonics researchers at the University of California, San Diego have increased the maximum power — and therefore distance — at which optical signals can be sent through optical fibers. This advance has the potential to increase the data transmission rates for the fiber optic cables that serve as the backbone of the internet, cable, wireless and landline networks.

    2 Jul 2015 | 9:37 am
    What is Low Shear Mixing? You have probably utilized low shear mixing and didn’t even realize it. According to recent coffee statistics, it has been documented the nearly half of America’s population are coffee drinkers that consume about 3.1 cups a day. That comes out to about 159 Million people. Now, lets say that half of those 159 million people added cream to their coffee. If you have prepared coffee by adding cream and stirred it an appropriate rate of speed, then you have performed a raw small scale version of the concept of low shear mixing. Low shear mixing or low energy…

    Jeremy, thank you very much for joining us on the Mixer Direct Blog! For starters, can you tell us a little bit about your story and how it connected to a path in the distilling industry?

I started my legal distillery on this very farm because I want to honor the legacy and tradition of what life once was by making the very spirit he used to. Bootlegging was born out of pure economic necessity to survive and provide for your family back in its day. Paint us a word…

    23 Jun 2015 | 2:27 pm
    Electronics is an amazing profession and hobby. The notion that one can harness the forces of nature and bend them to one’s whim is immensely satisfying. With the resurgence of the DIY spirit and the evolution of the Maker Movement, getting started in electronics has never been easier. Embedded open source platforms such as Arduino and BeagleBone provide a fantastic jumping in point for learning electronics and software. I could only have dreamt of the resources we have today when I was first starting out. With that in mind, here are my five tips for getting started in electronics based…

    Charles Duell, the commissioner of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office at the turn of the 20th-century was once misquoted as saying, "Everything that can be invented has been invented."  Thanks to an intrepid librarian it was later discovered that Duell actually stated, “In my opinion, all previous advances in the various lines of invention will appear totally insignificant when compared with those which the present century will witness. I almost wish that I might live my life over again to see the wonders which are at the threshold.” I echo Mr. Duell’s sentiment with…

    While recently demonstrating a prototype to a family member I was asked, “Are you going to patent that?” While happy to see such enthusiasm, I tactfully declared that I couldn’t seek a patent, as it was built using open source components. This perplexed my family member who, being from a generation or two (or three) before me, thought that is how “inventing things” works – their words. I did my best to explain the seemingly “hippie-ish” concepts of open source, copyleft, and creative commons licenses to someone from America’s Greatest…

    When Sputnik launched in 1957, it contained four antennas that transmitted a very simple radio signal that allowed the satellite to be tracked. Fast forward through the years and space exploration has become increasingly sophisticated. We have since expanded to manned spaceflight, space stations, landing on the moon, sending rovers to distant planets, and satellites of all types. In the beginning, human space exploration has required the resources that only governments could afford. Today that is changing, thanks to companies such as SpaceX and Orbital Sciences Corporation.

  • 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…

    29 Jun 2015 | 10:16 am
    When I started piano lessons at 5 and added clarinet lessons at 6, I’m sure Mom and Dad had no idea they were preparing me for a career in tech. The art classes, operas, dance performances and trips to the Met Museum of Art and MOMA sprinkled throughout childhood and adolescence were aimed at making us “cultured” and “civilized”. So we would understand the better parts of the human spirit. Dad’s claim was that the arts are “one of the ways we see God”. Whatever one’s take on that, it can certainly be asserted that the arts are a way of experiencing “divineness” in life.

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.

    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…

    The elimination of forklifts has been an increasing trend in manufacturing plants. While it may seem hard to imagine a plant operating without forklifts, many plants have implemented this policy and are very pleased with the outcome. One of the leading drivers for this trend is safety, every year approximately 100 workers are killed and about 20,000 more are seriously injured due to forklifts. Another driver is cost reduction, an old industry adage applies the “80/20 rule to the cost of forklift. Over the life of a forklift, 20% of the total cost is ownership, the remaining 80% is operating…

    The load on a power station varies from time to time due to uncertain demands of the consumers and is known as variable load on the station. A power station is designed to meet the load requirements of the consumers. An ideal load on the station, from stand point of equipment needed and operating routine, would be one of constant magnitude and steady duration. However, such a steady load on the station is never realized in actual practice. The consumers require their small or large block of power in accordance with the demands of their activities. Thus the load demand of…

The cables are held by porcelain cleats about 6 mm above the walls or ceiling. The cleats are made in two halves, one base and the other cap. The base is grooved to accommodate the cables and the cap is put over it and whole of it is then screwed on wooden plugs (gutties) previously cemented into the wall or ceiling. Thus the cables are firmly griped between the two halves of the…

  • Insulators, Conductors and Semiconductors (with Band Diagram)

    23 May 2015 | 5:07 am
    Solid state materials can be classified into three groups: insulators, semiconductors and conductors. Insulators have no free charge carriers available with them under normal conditions. Conducting materials have plenty of free electrons available for electric conduction. A semiconductor material is one whose electrical properties lie in between those of insulators and good conductors.Insulators are materials having an electrical conductivity less than 10-8S/cm (like diamond: 10-16S/cm); semiconductors have a conductivity between 10-8S/cm and 103S/cm (for…
  • Swinburne’s Test of DC Machine

    15 May 2015 | 8:29 pm
    Please go through testing of dc machines before reading this topic. Swinburne’s test is the simplest indirect method of testing dc machines. In this method, the dc machine (generator or motor) is run as a motor at no-load and losses of the machine are determined. Once the losses of the machine are known, its efficiency at any desired load can be determined in advance.It may be noted that this method is applicable to those machines in which flux is practically constant at all loads e.g., shunt and compound machines.Steps to find the EfficiencyLet us see how the efficiency of a dc shunt…

  • Simultaneous Engineering Case Study – KTH Parts Industries

    Eric Kam
    28 Jun 2015 | 10:36 pm
    KTH Parts Industries has a relatively unique position in the automotive stamping industry; they are a tier-1 automotive parts supplier, serving only one customer since their founding in 1984. Their relationship with their OEM partner has developed over the years into a highly effective, simultaneous engineering process. KTH guest engineers work closely with their OEM […]

    Sometimes a stamping process engineered and validated using simulation will differ from the results of the die once it is built. One might wrongly conclude that “the simulation was wrong,” or “bad steel,” or blame the toolmakers. Instead, consider that the simulation is correct but that the assumptions in the simulation are a little different […]
  • Virtual Tryout or Process Engineering?

    Eric Kam
    7 Jun 2015 | 10:01 pm
    In simulation, there is ongoing effort to prove who can claim to be the best at “virtual tryout.” Product brochures and websites promote software solutions that “bypass soft tooling” and “minimize die tryout.” While these are certainly desirable goals, perhaps they do not go far enough. Soft tooling has been driven to near extinction by […]
  • Springback Compensation, when not to try

    In previous posts, we discussed the industry challenge of springback. Everybody wants a springback “silver bullet” or easy solution for Springback Compensation—alternative geometry in the tooling, which allows the stamped part to have the desired shape after elastic deformation recovery. The most common method of springback compensation is the overbend/overcrown method. If you observe a […]
