    This review traces the developing contribution of electronic instrumentation and control systems to UK agricultural and horticultural production. It covers applications in the livestock, arable and horticultural sectors in turn, taking the important grass crop as part of the arabic sector. These main sections are subdivided by type of livestock, crop or farming operation, as appropriate. The secti... View full abstract»

    Owing to limitations of conventional therapeutic modalities (surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy) a renewed interest in cancer thermotherapy has resulted. Fundamental principles governing tissue absorption, guidelines for applicator selection and design and restrictions of each heating approach are discussed. The paper also focuses on recent innovative techniques utilising multiple applicators ... View full abstract»

    A retrospective review of the development of active noise control systems is presented, arguing that the design of active noise control (ANC) systems should be considered from a control systems point of view. This approach provides a design methodology that accounts for the design parameters of the system which determine its performance, thereby producing an ANC system that reduces the problems as...

    This paper describes the role of electricity as an enabling technology vital to the accomplishment of tasks underwater, i.e. subsea intervention. The basic methods of subsea intervention, i.e. ambient-pressure and atmospheric diving and the use of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), are outlined, and the hyperbaric ambient- pressure diving environment described in some detail as this presents parti...
