    A new power station, opened in November 1993 at Wolverhampton, will burn some 90000 tonnes of tyres per annum-more than 20% of the UK's total output. The new station is the largest approved under the first tranche of the Non-Fossil Fuel Obligation, producing 30 MW of electricity. The Wolverhampton plant is built around five identical incinerator/boiler flue-gas cleaning systems. Incineration takes... View full abstract»

    The author discusses the development of fuzzy sets in control. The importance of fuzzy sets in control is that they support the formulation of control rules that reflect an operator's natural ambiguity about the meaning of linguistic values, avoiding forced and specious precision in the specification of control rules. In addition, because sharp transitions across set boundaries are eliminated, the... View full abstract»

  • Steel restructured

    Glass-like steels offer most of the advantages of the more conventional material but with some important bonuses in magnetic terms. If suitable 'glass-forming' alloys are rapidly quenched at around 106°C/s from the liquid to solid state, thin ribbon material with excellent magnetic properties is formed. Because the resulting ribbon is amorphous it has no crystal boundaries and only ... View full abstract»

  • Logical copyright changes in legal protection of software

    1993 brought a series of changes in the protection and licensing of software, which mark a shift in the legal and commercial balance between suppliers and users. In particular, they introduced a number of additional rights for software users, some of which will apply irrespective of anything in the relevant contract. Everyone involved in the development, licensing or use of computer programs shoul... View full abstract»

  • The phantom tollbooth charging for road use

    For 2000 years, road travellers have been charged to use roads, bridges and tunnels and they have been required to pay to enter some cities. Originally this was to raise money for building and maintaining roads and for profit. Nowadays there are other reasons, such as the control of congestion and pollution. Charging for road use includes onroad parking, transit along roads and, potentially chargi... View full abstract»

  • Payloads and overheads-data communications and kanban

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):26 - 27

    The author explains how the kanban, or just-in-time, approach to manufacturing works. He then draw analogies with data communication systems and in particular asynchronous transfer mode and routing switches. These analogies are illuminating in that they show how alike the two disciplines are, and how they have arrived at similar solutions to similar problems. The author studies the differences bet...
