    A new method for measuring the rate of sulphation of storage battery plates was recently devised al the Bureau of Standards by Vinal and Ritchie (Technologic Paper 225). This consisted of periodic weighings of plates suspended in electrolyte. The present paper is an extension of this work. Detrimental impurities when present in the solution may (1) corrode the plate, (2) accelerate the formation o... View full abstract»

    In introduction, the history of human language is outlined and the manner of speech production is briefly described with special reference to English. Following this is a summary treatment of available data on the subject of speech and hearing. Much of this is the result of investigations carried out during the last two or three years in the Research Laboratories of the Bell System at New York. Hu... View full abstract»

    A method of determining the power limit of a transmission system taking into account the characteristics of the synchronous condensers and load in conjunction with those of the transmission line is described. The power limit of a transmission system divided into two sections by an intermediate synchronous condenser station is determined and compared that of the same system without the condenser st...

    From past experience, in connection with generator winding breakdowns, we have come to the conclusion that many of these breakdowns have been due to moisture, or water getting into the machines, causing concentration of corona on t h e winding where t h e drops of water werelocated.

    During January the Rubber Section of the Bureau of Standards carried out some work on the effect of variations in vulcanization on the electrical properties of rubber insulating materials for cables. A number specimens of the compound, smoked sheets, 92 percent and sulphur 8 per cent, were prepared for the purpose of determining the effect on the electrical properties of conducting vulcanizing at ...

    Back of every safety program there stands the industry itself with its precedents, prejudices and traditions. Coal mining, being an old established industry, naturally had many fixed traditions long before electricity and electrical equipment, comparatively new forces, made their appearance.

    The characteristics of three-circuit transformers, the literature of which is very meager, is discussed here in considerable detail. The features of the scheme of treatment are as follows: 1. The scope and general aspects of the problems of three-circuit transformers are reviewed. 2. Some peculiar phenomena of considerable theoretical interest are cited. 3. An electrical network equivalent to the ... View full abstract»

    Use of radiotelephony is increasing steadily in Great Britain, where at present there are about 580,000 licensed “listeners in.” A large majority of these people own crystal sets, which can be used with good results since broadcasting stations are located in the populous districts throughout the country. There is, however, a good demand for tube sets. View full abstract»

    FOR the past 15 years or more there have occured recurrently in technical literature articles giving methods of checking the connections of three-phase wattmeters. In February 1916 Prof. W. B. Kouwenhoven presented a long and detailed paper to the American Institute on the subject. (Vol. 35, Part I, page 183). Practically all these writings point out the frequency with which misconnections occur a... View full abstract»

    J. S. Thompson: I would like to have you consider what we believe is a step in the right direction in regard to oil circuit breakers. Our factory has developed an oil circuit breaker with six breaks per pole, which is not a new idea at all. We have done it in a novel way in that we have not increased the number of pieces of insulation between the conductors and the ground, but have simply introduc... View full abstract»

    Some months ago the Revolutionary Government forbade by legal decree the operating of private wireless apparatus in Greece. However, the Ministers of Finance and Marine of the present Government, according to unofficial advices, have now prepared a bill to be submitted to the National Assembly for ratification, by which the operation of private radio sets belonging to Greek individuals will be per...

    AT the close of the 19th century a notable event occurred at Niagara Falls, — the development of a plant for the utilization electrically of Niagara power. Then, as now, Niagara Falls was recognized as the finest water power in the world, a cataract of great height, fed from the five Great Lakes, constituting a water storage without a rival. It was in keeping with the situation that the fir... View full abstract»

    Among the various plans to substitute electricity for coal in Austria, since Austria is dependent on foreign sources for three-fourths of its coal supply, the development of water power for the electrification of railways is important. The coal needed for all steam-operated railwaysin Austria is estimated at 4,700,000 metric tons per year (when operating at full capacity) and this amounts to about... View full abstract»

    In the body of the paper by Fortescue and Wagner, presented at the recent Midwinter Convention, and in the companion papers by Evans and Bergvall, E. B. Shand, and Evans and Sels the conditions of stability are discussed by means of graphs. This method has been chosen as that best fitted for presenting these important factors in the problem of power transmission before the engineering public in th... View full abstract»

    While the use of power lines as the transmission medium for telephone currents is a comparatively recent development, the fundamental problems involved and the methods employed do not differ essentially from the somewhat older arts of multiplex or carrier telephony over telephone lines, and radio telephony. The differences lie chiefly in the range of carrier frequencies which is best adapted to ea... View full abstract»

    Notwithstanding the wonderful lighting progress visible on every hand, the Great American Home is still much underlighted. Just as has always been the case, general applications of good lighting lag behind the possibilities. Only one third of our homes are wired for electricity and these are less t h a n half lighted. It is the duty of the lighting interests to raise the average to a conservative ... View full abstract»

    When the first really satisfactory automobile signal was brought out two or three years ago, and a new and thriving business created almostovernight, it did not mean that there had been no need for such signals in the past that highways had suddenly become so cluttered with automobiles that signals found themselves removed from the luxury to the necessity class. Nor was it because motorists sudden... View full abstract»
