    Prior to 1938, the only method to determine optimum operation of an oil cracking still was by sampling at selected points and subsequent laboratory analysis of the fluid samples. This analysis so delayed the results that the information was called "history instead of news." The author designed a process analog computer, using six cascaded Wheatstone bridges, which successfully solved an empirical ... View full abstract»

    The commercial failure of the electric vehicle in the first decades of this century was due to a number of factors, but one which has not yet been remarked upon by historians was the lack of interest of most electric utility companies in the vehicle charging business. Electric vehicle needed careful maintenance to presive their expensive and not very durable batteries, and in those businesses whic... View full abstract»

    As the Chief Consulting Engineer for the General Electric Company, a prominent socialist, and leader of the AIEE, Charles Proteus Steinmetz (1865-1923) compromised between business demands and professional ideals when the Institute considered such issues as standardization, ethics, and the social responsibility of the engineer. Underlying these compromises was his theory of corporate socialism, wh... View full abstract»

    The synchronous motor was created in 1869, nearly twenty years before the invention of the induction motor. Yet, by the beginning of the 20th Century the induction motor had achieved a maturity, such that it was being widely applied in industry. The synchronous motor, despite unique features, did not reach a similar degree of acceptance until the eady 1920's. A half-century was required to evolve ... View full abstract»
