    One of the outstanding reasons for the active development of controlled fusion nuclear reactors as a source of electric power, aside from economic advantages, is that they are extremely attractive from an environmental standpoint. The basic principles and some of the most pressing problems are presented in this article. Among the problems considered are plasma confinement, heating, fuel injection,... View full abstract»

  • The present status of engineering employment

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):37 - 38
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (574 KB)

    A benchmark survey of engineering employment shows the picture to be brighter than supposed-but still sobering. Results confirm many past conclusions concerning the geographic nature of the problem and highlight the degree of severity existing in mid-1971. Overall unemployment for U.S. engineering professionals who are members of engineering societies is 3.0 percent. One significant fact to emerge... View full abstract»

  • Two-way applications for cable television systems in the '70s

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):39 - 54
    Cited by:  Papers (5)  |  Patents (83)
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (12305 KB)

    Two-way communications on a cable television system can be achieved in many different ways. This special report surveys the various approaches that have been proposed and are being tried experimentally in the field. The emphasis is on the basic engineering configurations rather than on the uses to which the systems can be put. For almost all of the systems, the possible two-way uses are limited on...

  • Placing atmospheric CO2 in perspective

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):59 - 72
    Cited by:  Papers (6)
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (11390 KB)

    Atmospheric carbon dioxide, which amounts to 320 parts per million (ppm) by volume, rather than being a pollutant, is essentially a thread of life woven through the globe on which we live. In the past century alone, the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has increased by 40 ppm, with levels increasing at a current rate of about 0.75 × 1010 tonnes per year. Fortunately, man can tolerate CO2 levels man... View full abstract»

  • Systems approach toward nationwide air-pollution control II. The technical requirements

    Publication Year: 1971, Page(s):73 - 81
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5276 KB)

    The general configuration for air-pollution control systems that was outlined in Part I will impose certain requirements upon system components-including hardware (sensors, data processors, communications), software (air quality laws, emission regulations, data processing, simulation programs), and of course the organization and the people who staff it. Most important of all, and surely the most c... View full abstract»
