  • Biomedical engineering

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):1051 - 1070

    The increasing sophistication of modern technology and its widening areas of application have established the need for multidisciplinary activities, and biomedical engineering is a typical example of this trend. The evolution of the subject from the engineering approach of earlier biomedical workers is described, and some of the lessons learned before and during the transition are considered. An a...

    As the field of radar is very large, the treatment in the paper is necessarily brief, and is mainly confined to techniques and systems of current interest. All radar systems are subject to fundamental performance constraints stemming from the range, range rates and angle-measurement processes which are basic to radar. Most modern radar systems of interest are subject to further constraints arising... View full abstract»

  • Radio-isotope instrumentation

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):1090 - 1106

    The paper reviews the use, design and performance of the various forms of radio-isotope instrumentation, with some comment on the historical development of the subject, and possible developments, in the future. Earlier surveys published by the IEE have described nuclear measuring instruments for use in the laboratory and in nuclear-reactor experiments and other installations. Here it is proposed t...

  • Effect of pollution on high-voltage outdoor insulators

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):1107 - 1130

    High-voltage insulators may flashover at working voltage when polluted and wet. Pollution is deposited by various forces, of which aerodynamic ones are shown to be usually the most important. Theories to explain the pollution-flashover process are described. The performance of insulators in a polluted environment may be assessed by tests in natural conditions, or by the use of artificial methods, ... View full abstract»

    The paper gives a survey of the most important aspect of arc-electrode processes (excluding externally heated cathodes) which concern engineers in a variety of applications. Although it is not possible to avoid discussion of the basic mechanisms and of the number of conflicting and still unresolved theories for them, the emphasis is, as far as possible, on those characteristics which affect the de...
