  • Electricity in the Portland cement industry

    There are probably many persons who can recall the time when Portland cement was considered to be a luxury in building all but the finest and greatest structures, owing to its high cost, and to a certain extent, to the uncertainty of the quality of the product. During the last twelve years those connected with the industry have been working hard on improvements in the methods of manufacture, and t... View full abstract»

    Gano Dunn: It is a deep satisfaction to see that the author of this paper has found in the Institute the forum where it may be presented and discussed instead of finding that forum in the Illuminating Engineering Society. The author followed good precedent. Illumination has been a close cousin if not a nearer relative to electrical engineering, and I think it always will be. View full abstract»

    J. B. Fisken: To show what electrical engineering has done, I might state that the first time I saw the Spokane valley was twenty-five years ago, and I don't think there were six houses in the whole 35 miles. The valley was covered with bunch grass, which was considered only good for the Indians to feed to their cayuses. I had a request from a prominent member of this Institute to make some inquir...

  • Discussion on “automatic private branch exchange development in San Francisco” (Deakin), Portland, Ore., April 17, 1912. (see proceedings for April, 1912)

    H. M, Friendly: I ask if Mr. Deakin has ever considered the use of a private branch exchange having a limit of 170 stations instead of the 90 station limit in order to obviate having to use second selectors. In Chicago, I saw the switch that the manufacturers had designed, but I had no knowledge of its practical use. I also saw one at Columbus, Ohio, they were testing. The switch differed somewhat...

  • Discussion on “the design of telephone pole lines for conditions west of the Rocky Mountains” (Griswold) Portland, Ore., April 17, 1912. (see proceedings for May, 1912)

    H. Y. Hall: I ask Mr. Griswold what has been the experience of the telephone companies in the use of concrete particularly, and what has been the effect of the use of concrete on the butt rot. That is, under the weather conditions, applied under similar conditions that exist in the west, and also in the different soils. The paper states “It is the practice to allow the pole to reach approxi... View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “plant efficiency — an analysis of the losses of a hydroelectric system” (Ross), Portland, Ore., April 18, 1912. (see proceedings for May, 1912)

    Gano Dunn: It is startling indeed to see the resulting efficiencies so carefully and accurately computed as have been computed in this paper, and it is also startling to see a considerable difference in the amount of this total efficiency from what probably it would have been given in the prospectus of a hydroelectric company had this company been in the course of financing instead of in actual op...
