    Between the end of the Indian Mutiny in 1857 and 1870, four Anglo-Indian telegraph routes were constructed. The first of these, via the Red Sea, was abandoned in 1861 leaving the British and Indian Governments to honour their guaranteed annual payments of 4½% on the capital invested. The second, via the Persian Gulf was completed in 1865 but proved difficult to operate without English speak... View full abstract»

    Lightning is one of the most common and severe of electromagnetic threats. Understanding its impact on the safety of persons, system integrity and electromagnetic compatibility is of major importance. Predicting its interaction with structures using suitable numerical models is an essential step in designing systems with a high level of immunity to the lightning threat. The purpose of this paper i... View full abstract»

    Nature has much with which to inspire engineers in their efforts to design and fabricate systems demanded by every aspect of one's daily lives. At the centre of this are cells in plants and animals, which have diverse form and function and may be regarded as clever adaptive machines with exquisite methods for sensing and communication. The opportunities provided by biological cells and assemblies ... View full abstract»
