    The paper discusses about the author's experiment with the power transmission lines and a couple of bulbs in a moonless night. The bulbs will lit up as he walked under a power line since current was flowing through his body because he was short circuiting part of the electric field established between the lines and the ground at his feet.

    The erosion process caused by fluid action in rivers, in near-shore regions, and around offshore platforms is interesting for both environmentalists and engineers. Many studies have been made of this phenomenon. However, sediment transport processes are still far from being clearly understood. Field and laboratory investigations are extremely important for improving our knowledge of the basic forc... View full abstract»

    Today, most of the signal processing performed in electronic systems is digital, and the performance of the analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) present at the borders of the digital domain become very important. The most recent applications in telecommunication, measurement, and consumer electronics call for ever-increasing ADC resolution and speed. The uncertainty of ADC performance strongly affe...

    Rapid analysis of coal properties plays an important part in improving combustion efficiency and reducing atmospheric emissions at coal-fired power stations. This article describes a technology for this application. Coal-fired power plants test for several different measurands: pollutants, the calorie value of coal, and the percentage of elements. A pulsed neutron beam can be used to analyze coal ... View full abstract»

    It is not controversial to say that automation will increase the efficiency of any process, compared with the current performance. In many automation projects, however, one important issue has been overlooked: resistance. This resistance is not electrical resistance governed by Ohm's law. It is resistance to change by personnel when automation or technology changes are suggested. This is a common ... View full abstract»

    It would be great if the parts used in a traditional hip replacement lasted forever, but they don't. The surgery performed when the parts need to be repaired is called revision hip arthroplasty. The best method of revision is decided by one of three situations: injury, change in the joint components, or severe loss of bone stock. Orthopedic surgeons have observed that soon after revision surgery, ... View full abstract»
