  • Social responsibility of the engineer

    WHETHER engineers should assume a larger measure of social responsibility has been debated extensively during the last decade with practical results that are not impressive, yet there appears to be significant crystallization of professed opinion. While the view still lingers here and there that the engineer should stick to his technical knitting, letting other professional men worry about the social consequences of his work, there is nevertheless a pervasive and growing opinion that he should play a more active part in the social realm and that his educational preparation should take this aim into account. However, the extent of the discussion and of apparent agreement upon this point is out of all proportion to the practical results, as measured either by active participation or by changes in educational programs looking to participation. Progress seems to be stymied biologically; after professional maturity, we seem to exhibit a certain elasticity of professed view but tend nevertheless to cling tenaciously to established habits. Not having participated, we don't start. Thus as a profession of engineers and educators we seem to agree upon principle, and more or less let it go at that. View full abstract»

    Some of the human relationships involved between management and workers, business and its customers, and business and government are discussed here by a prominent power-company executive, who takes as his text the statement that “the strength of human feeling is still the most potent of all forces affecting the affairs of the world.” View full abstract»

    AT THE summer convention meeting of the AIEE board of directors June 29, 1939, at San Francisco, Calif., the June 1, 1939, AIEE draft of Model Law for Registration of Engineers was adopted by unanimous vote. Therefore it appears timely to outline the origin and development of this draft, and to indicate how it may be used. View full abstract»

  • Synthetic materials as wire insulation

    Publication Year: 1939 , Page(s): 379 - 388

    Preceded by a historical outline of the use of synthetic materials for insulating electric conductors, this article reviews in some detail the use of these materials on magnet wire, with particular reference to the recent introduction of the new insulating coating called “Formex” which is a synthetic resin embodying polyvinyl formal and is applied to wires by the floating die method. Comparative tests show this new material to be markedly superior to former enamel insulating coatings. View full abstract»

  • Temperature aging characteristics of class a insulation

    This paper reviews the literature relating to the effect of temperature on the life of class A insulation. It presents test data on aging of built-up samples 100 mils thick, of varnished cloth, both black and yellow, over the temperature range 105 to 200 degrees centigrade. The effect of temperature on the insulation was measured by three different methods — physical condition by visual observation, bending of the insulation to produce cracking, and the lowering of the breakdown voltage of samples which had been immersed in water. The final results are given in the form of temperature-time curves for several degrees of deterioration as measured by each of the tests. View full abstract»
