    For as long as human beings have been using electricity, there have been worries about its safety. There has been growing public concern about possible health effects of electric and magnetic fields produced by electricity generation, transmission and use. This concern is increasingly affecting electricity utilities; engineers cannot afford to ignore it. However, much of the concern is based on mi... View full abstract»

    F.C. Williams spent his whole professional life in inventive research. He defined invention as a forward step which is not taken as the result of logical processes on the available data. In his career there were many such forward steps, including inventing circuits for aircraft identification using radar, the computer storage medium used extensively in the early days of computer memory, the struct...

    The widespread introduction of powerful and inexpensive computer workstations in industry and education has provided a new impetus to the development and application of numerical simulation as an analysis and design tool. Increasingly, larger parts of the design process are simulation based, thus leading to lower costs and right-first-time designs. Moreover, the development of the digital computer...
