    Electromagnetic motors became a theoretical possibility in the first half of the nineteenth century, and a practical proposition in the second. However, Benjamin Franklin had a useful, truly electric, motor before 1750. The author briefly describes the motor and its operating principle, as well as a modern reconstruction View full abstract»

    The focus of this article is the maintenance of value in the working population. Technology offers new ways to increase the opportunity for quaternary (post-tertiary) learning and to allow it to adequately match the learner's needs. It offers a challenge to academics and experts to allow their knowledge to be made move widely available and for institutions to broaden the scope of their services. A... View full abstract»

  • Improving the quality of student learning: a systems approach

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):131 - 136
    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    The study of engineering student learning is only really beneficial when examined in real-life settings. Students have their own, sometimes reactionary ideas about what affects the quality of their learning. Learning does not take place in convenient isolation and has to be understood in terms of cognition, behaviour, affect and context. Engineering undergraduate education must be seen as fitting ...

  • Waste to energy: the new frontier?

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):105 - 111

    Each year the South East of England, including London, generates some 27.5 million tonnes of municipal, industrial and construction wastes. With a few exceptions this waste is disposed of at landfills, often some distance from the origin of the waste. However these landfills are nearing completion and, because of planning and environmental constraints, are not being replaced at a rate sufficient t... View full abstract»

  • Ionising radiation effects: a vital issue for semiconductor electronics

    Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):123 - 130
    Cited by:  Papers (5)

    Many modern electronic systems are required to survive harsh radiation environments, such as those naturally present in space or those which may be artificially created by machines or nuclear devices. Semiconductor devices are innately susceptible to ionising radiation effects due to intrinsic features of their design. Certain specific radiation effects mechanisms may be identified as limiting the... View full abstract»
