    Many products of wartime research and development will find a productive place in the postwar world. Some of these, such as radar, the gyroscopic stabilizer, and various new materials already are in the evolutionary stage with definite applications in sight; the potentialities of others, including the most sensational development, nuclear energy, are being explored actively.

    This article explains the characteristics and operating principles of the amplidyne generator by comparison with a conventional d-c generator. The fact that the amplidyne possesses the requirements for a perfect electric regulator, high amplification and fast speed of response, is emphasized, and several applications are described which illustrate the amplidyne's versatility.

    A deicing or ice-prevention unit, comprised mainly of wrought iron pipe and an electrical heating element, has been devised by the Cleveland Railway Company, Cleveland, Ohio, to prevent track switches from freezing. Wrought iron was selected because of corrosive conditions encountered, especially from salt which is used to clear streets of ice and snow. View full abstract»
