    The development of electrical machines was facilitated by the availability of high conductivity copper conductors, and the nonferrous manufacturers are still meeting the requirements of the electrical and electronics industry. Having shown that copper it still in plentiful supply, the review describes over 80 standardised wrought coppers and copper alloys and 37 casting materials. Compositions are... View full abstract»

    The paper reviews the methods developed for predicting the reliability of systems, based upon design information, failure data on components, extrapolation from test data, and the use of mathematical models which relate predicted reliability to the various factors which can affect it, such as stress, application environments, quality and reliability programme activities. The fundamental limitation... View full abstract»

    In recent years there has been great interest in simulating theoretically the growth of an electrical discharge in a gaseous dielectric. The review is a general introduction to the subject of discharge simulation and summarises the advances that have been made in modern computational techniques which enable the growth of a discharge to be traced from its initiation until instantaneous currents of ...

    The rapid development of electronic technology in the last twenty years has now brought it to a point where it is practical to use electronic control systems, with suitable associated sensors and actuators, to directly replace a number of existing mechanical or electromechanical systems in the motor vehicle. This is being done where there is a need for the improved accuracy, speed and reliability ... View full abstract»
