    The hiatus that all too often exists between knowledge and understanding is illustrated in this article by two separate case studies. The author begins with an overview of the problem. The substance of the case studies is then set out to demonstrate how scholastic discernment was used in recent coursework/examination solutions to gauge depth of student understanding View full abstract»

    A measurement audit is a method for sampling a calibration laboratory's measurements and assessing its performance against the limit of its claimed uncertainties of measurement. It is also a technique that supports quality assurance of all aspects of a laboratory's calibration system. This paper describes various methods of performing and assessing the results of measurement audits View full abstract»

    This paper concludes a short series that has presented an outline account of the physics and technology associated with flux-compression generators. The performance of these devices is characterised by a number of distinct parameters, both electromagnetic and explosive, and the paper explains the main experimental techniques and instrumentation that have been developed for their measurement during...

    Steinmetz was regarded as one of the most brilliant engineers of his day, yet he published a book containing a section on the effect of one radio antenna on another which seems to be wrong. This article compares Steinmetz's analysis with a `modern' approach using the magnetic vector potential and tracks down the discrepancy View full abstract»

  • The changing nature of engineering [technology history]

    Publication Year: 1996, Page(s):231 - 239

    Engineering artefacts play major roles in the evolution of mankind and culture. Engineering artefacts have evolved. Their natures have changed as Man has changed. Today, the engineering profession and the education of engineers are challenged by the rapidly changing nature of those engineering systems which determine what is meant by `modern technology' and which make possible new industries of gl...

    The output of education and training systems, in terms of both quantity and quality of skills at all levels, is the prime determinant of a country's level of industrial productivity and, hence, its competitiveness. However, the number of British students entering engineering courses is declining at a time when, more than ever, our lives are governed by technology and we are dependent on the ideas ...
