    Thames Water is rejuvenating London's water supply, creating a forward-looking network, with 50% more capacity, aimed at the next century. It will be based around the Pounds 250 million London Water Ring Main (LWRM)-part of a decade-long, Pounds 4 billion capital expenditure programming. Deeper than the lowest tube lines, longer than the Channel Tunnel and wide enough to take a London taxi, the 2.... View full abstract»

  • Chaos and engineering

    Advances in nonlinear dynamics have brought a revolution in the view of dynamical behaviour, with major implications for anyone engaged in engineering system design. The most obvious reason for knowing about chaos is to recognise it, and avoid it. For instance, chaotic modes of vibration can cause serious, and wholly unexpected, damage, threatening the stability of mechanical structures or of subs... View full abstract»

    It is now accepted that some 56 NPPs (nuclear power plants) in eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union are in a dangerous condition, and a huge programme of refurbishment or decommissioning is planned. This is a long-term task, which may never be completed. Meanwhile, the new republics, and thus Europe, must rely on alarm systems within NPPs and the current national monitoring networks for earl...

  • Thrills without spills-engineering the personal simulator

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):216 - 217

    The vision of a personal simulator-a one-seat module for entertainment arcades, or even the home-led the author to develop a completely new type of electric motor. The motor is known as the Pemram (pneumatic electromagnetic ram). This is best described by taking the topology of a linear motor (rotary motor with the stator unrolled) one step further and curling the stator back up into a tube, at ri... View full abstract»

  • International power-energy policy in the European Community

    The most recent European treaties have conspicuously omitted any mention of energy policy, but there is no shortage of ideas and even plans in the field. The author outlines the possible futures for energy in Europe.<> View full abstract»
