    The author describes his experience on electromagnetic pulse generated by a lightning bolt. The author also gained a lot of respect for the electromagnetic energy that must be released from an airborne nuclear explosion, seeing as how one blast can easily destroy all electronics within a 1,000 mi radius.

    For all in-process and finished product applications, laser sensors are used in the rubber and tire industry to enhance competitiveness by improving productivity. The basic benefits of using laser sensors for quality control include increasing yield and productivity, increasing quality by providing 100% product inspection, reducing scrap production and rejects, and in-process inspection to detect ...

  • Development of a hybrid switcher locomotive the Railpower Green Goat

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):25 - 29
    Cited by:  Papers (13)

    The Green Goat, a diesel/battery hybrid switcher locomotive, demonstrated impressive fuel savings as the engine never operates at idle as on a conventional locomotive. The Railpower Green Goat locomotive design incorporates all of the above features, but most importantly, focuses on keeping the concept as well as the implementation as simple as possible. During initial trials at the Union Pacific ... View full abstract»

    The 2005 earthquake that devastated Pakistan and Kashmir on 8 October and Hurricane Katrina, which struck the Gulf Coast region of the United States on 29 August, are reminders of how vulnerable we are. Rowan University classes were just days away from starting when Katrina hit, so we were presented with a unique opportunity. Since Rowan offers the Engineering Clinic each semester, it offered a ch... View full abstract»

  • Product development and avoiding tiger tanks

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):22 - 24
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (850 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    So much time is invested in the development of a new product that it is hard to see it shelved. But there is a lot more to bringing products to market than producing the design and first prototype. These issues are like tiger tanks in a battle, and they lurk for the uninitiated. There is a myriad of seemingly nonengineering issues that can act as ultimate barriers to market success: a name, compli... View full abstract»

  • Measuring capacitance using thermal noise

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):44 - 48
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (480 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This paper shows how to measure capacitance by measuring thermal noise. The goal is to design a circuit in which noise voltage is large enough to measure while remaining a simple function of capacitance. Furthermore, the bandwidth of the noise must be appropriate for measurement by a multimeter. View full abstract»

  • Debunking the better mousetrap myth [product delivery]

    Publication Year: 2006, Page(s):30 - 38
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (554 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    This article deals with an area of product delivery that very few of us ever touch. It is an interesting introduction to sales and what goes on at the other end of the development cycle for a new product. One reviewer thought that selling is much more art than science and that it requires native skills and intuition that are foreign to the engineering and scientific mindsets. The reviewer felt tha...

  • Climbing the commercialization hill the four phase of product development

    The article tried to give some sense of the activities and the amount of work still remaining after the creation of the first working product breadboard. It is estimated that typically only 10-50% of the work has been done by the time this first breadboard is done. The rest of the effort will typically require significant cooperation between employees in each functional area. All of these activiti... View full abstract»
