Transmission systems

From the earlier days, interconnected systems are being used worldwide for the transmission of electric power. Generation of electric power and its utilization can be far away with transmission line. There will be transmission losses in the form of heat energy along the transmission line because the lines are not perfectly conductor. The total power … Read more

TCAM

A TCAM has three major components (a) 8T BCAM cell that contains the stored data implemented using the cross coupled inverter and compare unit is implemented using pass transistor logic which compares the stored data with search data. Depending on the different applications, the compare unit can be implemented as XOR or XNOR functions. (b) … Read more

Manufacturing in the mid-18th century to mid-19th century

Introduction During the industrial revolution from about mid-18th century to mid-19th century, almost every part of the manufacturing was changed or improved. Three very important technological developments that boosted the revolution were in the textile world, in the use of steam power, and in the making of iron. The industrial Revolution had some kind of … Read more

Fracking

Fracking is a fairly new method of extracting natural gas. Fracking can be defined as a method to remove natural gas from the ground. Another way to describe fracking also known as hydraulic fracturing is the process of creating fissures in underground formations to allow natural gas to flow (Natural Gas Extraction – Hydraulic Fracturing … Read more

Frost damage

Water can be found in concrete as product of the hydration during the mixing or as a result of filtration induced by cracking and structural joints. When this water freezes, it creates pressure in the pore network of the concrete and generate tensile stresses that produce more cracking, surface scaling and possible loss of the … Read more

Construction costs

Building Design and Construction is the process of creating a plan and adding structure to real property or construction of buildings. In the modern industrialized world, construction usually involves the translation of designs in to reality. A formal design team may be assembled to plan the physical proceedings with the other parts. The design usually … Read more

Helicopters

Helicopters are extremely useful pieces of flying equipment, with the ability to both take off and land vertically. This along with being able to hover in a given place and fly in any direction, including backwards and to either side, means that they have a huge amount of uses worldwide and in many different environments, … Read more

Lean manufacturing for Indian automotive companies

Our initial results showed positive response from a majority of companies that we surveyed. However, a subsequent follow-up study of the inner working of these companies presented different scenarios and therefore helped us to understand the real problems facing these companies. Our in-depth research shows that among Indian automotive companies, there has been a remarkable … Read more
