    Following a brief description of the biological effects of exposure to ionising radiation, and an explanation of the general philosophy of those engaged in the practice of radiation protection, a detailed account is given of the role which monitoring of various types plays in that practice. Two quite different types of monitoring are involved ¿¿ for radiation from sources external to the body, and... View full abstract»

    Electromagnetic fields are generally calculated with the help of auxiliary functions which are called potentials. These potentials can be defined in a variety of ways, some of which lead to economies in computational effort. The paper examines various possibilities in choosing the potentials, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages. Particular attention is paid to the second-order magnetic ... View full abstract»

  • Effect of impregnation, compression and temperature on electric strength of polythene and polypropylene

    Publication Year: 1982 , Page(s): 113 - 118

    The effect of impregnation and compression on the electric strengths of polythene and polypropylene has been investigated. Measurements have been made over the temperature range ¿¿195 to + 20¿¿C. Four impregnants were used: The dipolar liquids hexachiorodiphenyl, trichiorodiphenyl and dibutyl phthalate and nonpolar transformer oil. At room temperature, the impulse strengths of polythene and polypr... View full abstract»

    Stacking of high-voltage resistance dividers, especially if the support columns are made from different materials, can lead to errors in the division ratio. An expression for the error introduced by leakage currents is presented and some values are given for a typical case. View full abstract»

  • Optical waveguides with impedance loaded walls

    Publication Year: 1982 , Page(s): 121 - 129
    Save to Project icon | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (890 KB)  

    A multimode waveguide with impedance loaded walls is investigated. After analysing the most important ways for achieving a surface impedance in the optical range, an asymptotic expression of the radiated field is derived. In Section 6 of the paper the coefficients of the modes excited by a linear current, put outside the waveguide, are evaluated. Many numerical results for different surface impeda...

    Emphasis is put on the increasing importance of maintenance costs and availability levels to the profitability of an industrial organisation. This point was recognised by UK Government studies in the late 1960s, and terotechnology was defmed to describe the areas of management and engineering concerned with these factors. During the last decade the concept of terotechnology has drifted from a poin... View full abstract»
