Discussion on “electrolytic corrosion in reinforced concrete.” Chicago, June 30, 1911. (see proceedings for May, 1911)

[] Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1911


Electrolytic corrosion in reniforced concrete

[{u'author_order': 1, u'full_name': u'C. Edward Magnusson'}, {u'author_order': 2, u'full_name': u'G. H. Smith'}] Proceedings of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, 1911

While reinforced concrete was coming into general use as a structural material much space in the technical press was given to discussions and reports on the durability of the encased iron. The results from a large number of experiments gave fairly conclusive evidence that under ordinary conditions the iron is protected, and that even if it was rusty when placed ...

The intelligent concrete: a new, economical technique for architectural shielding of buildings

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'IEEE Life Member', u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'M. Mardiguian', u'id': 37086060734}, {u'author_order': 2, u'affiliation': u'Orsay University, France', u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'J.P Caron-Fellens', u'id': 37086060337}] IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Magazine, 2017

An innovative technique is presented for global shielding of new or renovated large facilities, whereas ordinary concrete is replaced by special filament- loaded concrete plus a steel mesh surface covering, resulting in a superior Shielding Effectiveness. The screen-mesh provides excellent reflection characteristics below ≈ 100MHz, progressively replaced by the absorption losses of metallic fibers that takes over above 50-100MHz. Besides ...

This paper covers some points in substation design for installations for the lower voltages, including choice of location, type of building and arrangement of electrical apparatus. The subject is treated in three divisions, namely: customers' substations fed from the distribution system, customers' substations fed from the transmission system and company's substations. Attention is called to some of the advantages of ...

  • Distribution Theory

    This chapter provides results on sampling moments and distributions of error rates for classification rules specified by general discriminants, including the true error rate and the resubstitution, leave-one-out, cross-validation, and bootstrap error estimators. It also addresses the issue of separate sampling, side by side with mixture sampling, in a unified framework. The sampling issue creates problems for classifier design and error estimation. An example from Esfahani and Dougherty (2014a) illustrates the discrepancy in expected linear discriminant analysis (LDA) classification error between the two sampling mechanisms. The chapter discusses the sample-based discriminants with an eye toward differentiating between mixture and separate sampling. Finally, it describes the higher-order moments of the true error rate and of the resubstitution and leave-one-out estimated error rates, as well as the sampling distributions of resubstitution and leave-one-out.

  • Establishing Successful Global Virtual Teams

    This chapter provides a set of practical yet adaptable communication processes for establishing virtual teams that work well in global engineering organizations. The processes greatly enhance one's organization's ability to establish new virtual teams that function better and that survive the ever- changing needs of modern, global organizations. The chapter presents an effective communication practices and supporting technologies for new virtual teams and discusses resources for virtual team development. It offers guidelines for using metacommunication as a critical element when establishing new virtual teams. The chapter discusses how metacommunication can help to navigate face, cross-cultural screens, criticism, and trust, all of which are important elements in highly functioning virtual teams. It defines two concepts that are central to the task of establishing new teams: rich media (media that carry many cues) and social presence.

  • Virtual Director

    This chapter provides an insight into various aspects of Virtual Director technology. The first section introduces the concept of a Virtual Director and puts existing implementations in literature into perspective. Then, potential technical approaches are discussed and the combination of event processing and rule engines is inspected. Next, a generic architecture and information workflow for Virtual Director software systems is described. Selected subprocesses of a software framework executing Virtual Director behaviour are also highlighted. The chapter then explains the process of designing a Virtual Director's behaviour and takes a closer look at selected issues, focusing on visual output, and presents selected issues in production grammar implementation. Finally, the chapter presents a concrete existing implementation of a Virtual Director research prototype for a format‐agnostic production system.
