  • Alternating-current electrolysis

    Publication Year: 1907, Page(s):103 - 131
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2216 KB)

    The development of the one-phase railway motor leads to the introduction of grounded alternating-current systems, in which the current is returned over the rail. With rail-return, necessarily more or less current strays through the ground, reaching gas and water pipes, lead cables, etc. When using direct current for railroading, lead cables, etc. are protected against electrolytic corrosion by con...

  • Electrolytic corrosion of iron and steel in concrete

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6096 KB)

    In these days of wide and rapidly growing use of reinforced concrete and hydraulic cements in all kinds of structures, the question often comes up as to whether concrete will afford to iron and steel the same protection from stray currents of electricity that it does ordinary corrosion or rust. In the practice of investigating movements and results of currents upon under ground pipes and other str... View full abstract»

  • Some theoretical notes on the reduction of earth currents from electric railway systems by means of negative feeders

    Publication Year: 1907, Page(s):149 - 165

    The subject of earth currents caused by electric railway systems is of such importance that it is believed a few theoretical notes on the relative efficiencies of different return feeder systems in reducing stray currents will not be without interest. View full abstract»

  • High-tension outlets

    The building outlet in high-tension work has become very important and will increase in importance as higher pressures are used. A great variety of outlet arrangements have been tried, each company having a method of its own. Each arrangement has its disadvantages and all are liable to give serious trouble in case of storms. Blowing rain and snow will enter the building with the open outlet, while... View full abstract»

  • Underground transmission and distribution of electrical energy

    The faults in underground cables naturally classify themselves as follows: 1. Defects in the cable itself. 2. Injury received during installation. 3. Faulty workmanship. 4. Mechanical injury. 5. Electrolytic action. 6. Certain external injuries, the cause of which may not be conclusively established. View full abstract»

  • Discussion on “recent investigation of lightning protective apparatus'” at New York, December 28, 1906

    Ralph D. Mershon: There is probably no other natural force amongst those with which modern engineering has to deal of which so little is intimately known as of lightning. In most engineering problems it is possible to control and reproduce at will the conditions actually existing in practice, and thus study the phenomena resulting therefrom; or, if this is not possible, there is a natural repetiti...

    General The particular problem to be considered in this discussion is the following: wanted, direct-current power of approximately constant voltage; for instance, for railways 500 to 700 volts, for an incandescent lighting system, 100 to 275 volts, for an electrolytic process, any direct-current voltage. Given as a source of power, a long-distance alternating-current transmission system, which may... View full abstract»
