    FROM the moment that experiments with electricity were begun attempts were made to employ it in the healing art. The Romans attempted to use the electric torpedo eel therapeutically. In modern times we may first turn our attention to Paris immediately after our own revolution when Benjamin Franklin was our first genial ambassador to France. He was interested as much in the scientific discoveries o... View full abstract»

    COAL is the fuel of the future despite that most hazardous of prognostications — dealing with petroleum and natural-gas reserves. It is true that new discoveries of the latter fuels have been keeping pace with exhaustion of older fields, but no one will admit that the oil yet to be discovered will begin to approach in quantity the proved coal reserves.

    DURING the past three decades, standards and standardization have become an increasingly prominent subject of discussion in technical circles. They are an important part of the activities of many of the influential organizations associated with industry that have developed during this period. In more recent years, this interest in standardization has extended to many non-technical fields, includin... View full abstract»

    CONSIDERED to be “easily the safest passenger liner in existence” the steamship “America” recently placed in service by the United States Lines Company is said to be the largest merchant vessel ever built in the western hemisphere. The new liner has an over-all length of 723 feet, an approximate gross tonnage of 27,000, and is capable of a speed in excess of 22 knots. A... View full abstract»

    THE most important problem facing the railways today is that of maintaining revenues and financial structures in the face of falling traffic. Since the advent of the automobile a great deal of the most profitable land transport business has been diverted to highways, and this has resulted in a general decrease in net railway revenue, despite the fact that this same period of decreasing traffic wit...

    IN GENERAL, transformers are designed for a stated temperature rise when operated continuously at rated output. However, load requirements under actual operating conditions are variable, so that relatively few transformers are required to operate under steady load conditions. This is especially true of the smaller pole-type transformers, whose daily loads fluctuate over a wide range, with one, two... View full abstract»
