    In recent years, most new generating plant installed in the UK electricity supply industry has been gas turbine. In the near future, this trend could change as both environmental pressures and international agreements legislate towards a significant increase in the level of exploitation of renewable energy. Options for new generating plant must be assessed and compared using several bases before a... View full abstract»

    Sangatronics is a nationwide program to provide practical electronics instruction for students taking advanced level physics. It comprises five-day courses at a youth camp, where an intensive combination of theory, experiment and recreation has proved effective for over 2000 students. The locally-produced electronics kits and course notes are described in the paper, together with an evaluation of ... View full abstract»

    Engineers generally regard language as simply a convenient means of communication. Language, however, has an increasingly important role as a basic and indispensable carrier of information and this needs to be recognised by people in general and engineers in particular. In this age of information, engineers need to enhance their language skills if they are to achieve improved results in the face o... View full abstract»

  • Distribution of charges on conductors and Thomson's theorem

    Publication Year: 2001 , Page(s): 26 - 30

    A simple numerical method of multidimensional minimisation is applied in order to find the equilibrium configuration of N point charges confined to a given volume or surface. The method is applied to different geometric forms with both Coulomb and nonharmonic interacting potentials. The technique presented in this paper is very useful from a didactic point of view, as it allows the approximate con... View full abstract»

  • The genesis of the Wheatstone bridge

    Publication Year: 2001 , Page(s): 37 - 40
    Cited by:  Papers (3)

    In the paper in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society in which Wheatstone described the DC bridge that now bears his name, he attributes the idea of the bridge to S.H. Christie. French and German translations published the following year and possibly prepared from a preprint of the paper do not carry this attribution and this may explain why the bridge does not bear Christie's name. ...

  • Piezoelectric actuators in micropositioning

    Publication Year: 2001 , Page(s): 31 - 36
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (668 KB)  

    Micromachines can be built only with the aid of other machines that have micropositioning abilities. Fast and precise positioning devices are needed to increase reliability and speed in the production of the miniaturized devices. Intensive research effort has been devoted to developing new technologies for actuators and sensors. A wide range of technologies is now available and it is not possible ... View full abstract»
