believe that you simply lately graduated with a B.S. measure in technological know-how or engineering and may start your first specialist employment the following day. previous this afternoon, your supervisor known as to invite in the event you be aware of anything approximately nanotechnology, in order that the next day to come you can start constructing an inner inspiration in your department. yet both your collage didn't provide a direction on nanotechnology otherwise you made up our minds to not take one. you would like a crash path in nanotechnology, simply to get you off the floor.

feel that you're a doctoral scholar in a division whose candidacy exam calls for you to put in writing a five 10-page examine thought on an rising subject assigned by means of the school committee. think that your assigned subject intersects with nanotechnology, yet all that you simply learn about nanotechnology got here from a number of hour-long graduate seminars that you just attended the former semester. you would like a crash path in nanotechnology, not just to write down a powerful advent but in addition to acquaint your self with terminology to behavior effective searches on Google pupil, internet of technological know-how, Scopus, and so on.

consider that you're a post-doctoral researcher at both an educational or an business examine establishment. Your manager has requested you to propose a shining undergraduate pupil for a summer season undertaking in nanotechnology, even though the focal point of your individual study is somewhere else. you wish a crash direction in nanotechnology, to begin the child off in a promising course.

think that you're a new assistant professor. Your departmental head advises that your study inspiration to a central authority application to help new school individuals start learn courses lacks that ''wow'' issue that might almost warrantly luck. ''Put in a nano angle,'' you're advised. you wish a crash direction in nanotechnology, to dress your idea within the glory of ''nano.''

believe that you're a middle-aged professor present process a midlife quandary. rather than altering your loved ones or way of life, you could decide to swap your examine concentration to an rising examine sector. you wish a crash path in nanotechnology, to evaluate your present assets and destiny wishes.

along with your specific want in brain, we persuaded SPIE Press to post our brief and readable creation to nanotechnology. whereas Nanotechnology: A Crash Course is not going to transform you in a single day right into a nanostar, it is going to meet your instant want and intensely most probably assist you steer your expert existence in a brand new direction.

Excerpt from Tunnel Shields and using Compressed Air in Subaqueous Works

Although the employment of a guard, without or with assistance from compressed air, in tunnelling operations is of English starting place, and the size of tunnels so built during this nation is again and again more than the whole quantity of comparable paintings in other places, the topic is nowhere handled in Engineering textual content books written in English, other than in Simms' sensible Tunnelling and Prelini and Hills' Tunnelling, which, even if, contact purely a little on it as part of the final heritage of tunnelling.

Except for a couple of pages in those works, no account in English of shield-work exists keep within the kind of papers revealed within the continuing of the establishment of Civil Engineers and a few description of present works that have every now and then seemed within the technical journals.

In French books purely at the topic have seemed : the very whole paintings by way of M. Legouez, L' Kmploi du Boueiier dans l. a. development des Souterrains, and M. Philippe's Le Boudier, which provides a few fascinating info on contemporary French tunnel works.

The writer hopes, consequently, heritage of modern advancements in shield-work might be discovered of a few use to his profenuona) brethren, if basically through amassing in a single quantity a mass of knowledge hitherto scattered via many courses, and for this reason tough and challenging of access.

He has handled as in brief as attainable the early files of the shields, and of compressed air operating, conserving, certainly, that in basic terms with Mr. Greathead and his Tower subway defend the historical past of functional tunnelling via guard rather commences, yet of the advancements witnessed due to the fact that he has endeavoured to give as transparent a list because the restrict* of 1 quantity will permit.

Of the nice head protect paintings, the "assisted defend" approach to tunnelling, and a few of the subaqueous tunnels lately inbuilt and round London, he might declare to jot down from own wisdom, supplemented via details generously positioned at his disposal through the Engineers engaged within the a variety of undertakings described.

Download E-books The Engines of Our Ingenuity: An Engineer Looks at Technology and Culture PDF

By John H. Lienhard

Hundreds of thousands of individuals have listened to John H. Lienhard's radio software "The Engines of Our Ingenuity." during this interesting ebook, Lienhard gathers his reflections at the nature of know-how, tradition, and human inventiveness. The ebook brims with insightful observations. Lienhard writes that the background of know-how is a heritage of us--we are the machines we create. hence farming dramatically replaced the rhythms of human lifestyles and redirected background. struggle seldom fuels invention--radar, jets, and the electronic laptop all emerged earlier than global conflict II started. And the medieval Church was once a driver in the back of the expansion of Western technology--Cistercian monasteries have been digital factories, whose water wheels reduce wooden, cast iron, and beaten olives. Lienhard illustrates his subject matters via inventors, mathematicians, and engineers--with tales of the canoe, the DC-3, the Hoover Dam, the diode, and the stitching desktop. We achieve new perception as to who we're, during the widely used machines and applied sciences which are principal to our lives.
