    Undergraduate projects are now generally regarded as forming an essential part of degree education for engineers. The authors have made a wide study of the objectives, strategies of conduct and particularly methods of assessing final-year undergraduate projects mainly, but not entirely, in electronic and electrical engineering. Information has been obtained from most British university and polytec... View full abstract»

    Historically, the lighting of roads and streets was introduced to combat the crime rate. Although this is still a major consideration in justifying the installations of road lighting, the chief criterion now is the reduction of the night-time accident rate. Visual performance is considerably poorer at night than by day, particularly with respect to contrast sensitivity. Road lighting is, therefore... View full abstract»

    Interest in the lighting of cathedrals and churches has been growing since about 1950 owing to the increasing need to renew installations which have become unsafe and/or unsuitable for modern-day usage. Problems are often encountered owing to the age and style of the building to be illuminated and these are discussed in the paper. A description of the architecture of churches and cathedrals is inc... View full abstract»

    A comprehensive, critical review of applications of microwaves in industry, science, medicine and consumer services is given. A concise description of basic physical principles utilised in industrial, scientific, medical and domestic (ISM & D) applications of microwaves precedes an outline of characteristics of building blocks of circuitry employed. Numerous high-power and low-power applicatio... View full abstract»
