    Value Engineering is coming of age° In the hands of experienced product engineers it can grow into a truly professional tool for improving the competitive position of a company. It applies the precise techniques of science and engineering to those areas of evaluation, programming, and decision-making which have heretofore been governed by intuition. In estimating, bidding, and scheduling, Val... View full abstract»

    Summary Recent developments in the construction of thermoelectric coolers have resulted in improved coolers suitable for use in electronic equipment. The continual effort to improve the techniques of cooling electronic equipment led to the investigation of thermoelectric spot cooling of temperature-limiting component parts located within local areas of an electronic equipment. The investigation co... View full abstract»

    Vibration slip tables have been developed by the testing industry to provide a means of vibrating new products and equipment in the horizontal planes, while the item under test is positioned in its normal stance. The slip tables described in this paper are oil-lubricated by a continuous oil pressure system, which permits maximum efficiency of the equipment. A number of tests have been run on the t...
