Introduction Foundations Fill Backfilling, 2 PDH
This course will give engineers and other design and construction professionals an introduction to fill and backfill construction for structure foundations.
Intro Foundations In Areas of Significant Frost Penetration, 2 PDH
Areas of significant frost penetration may be defined as those in which freezing temperatures occur in the ground to sufficient depth to be a significant factor in foundation design.
Summary of Introduction Bearing Capacity Soil Analysis, 2 PDH
This course will introduce you to methods for analysis of soils and rock to determine load bearing capacity. Stresses transmitted by a foundation to underlying soils must not cause bearing-capacity failure or excessive foundation settlement.
Which engineering profession pays the most?
It''s no surprise that engineers make a decent wage - but did you know this is industry dependent?
3D modeling technology in medicine
Until now, physicians have largely been skeptical of the advantages of 3D technology. But this may be about to change: the findings of a new study show that even experienced surgeons stand to benefit from the third dimension.
Engineered coatings reduce industrial pollution
Contaminated industrial plants cost billions every year throughout the world. Special coatings can prevent the build-up of contaminants. Researchers are now able to adapt ultra-thin coatings for an extremely wide range of applications.
Creating your own animated 3D characters and scenes for the web
To show spatial animations on websites, developers so far have had only two options: to use special software or to implement it from scratch. Computer scientists at Saarland University have developed a declarative markup language which facilitates the creation of distinct spatial animations and ensu...
Brain-to-brain interface allows transmission of tactile and motor information
Researchers have electronically linked the brains of pairs of rats for the first time, enabling them to communicate directly to solve simple behavioral puzzles. A further test of this work successfully linked the brains of two animals thousands of miles apart-one in Durham, N.C., and one in Natal, B...
Neuroengineers unveils wireless brain sensor
In a significant advance for brain-machine interfaces, engineers at Brown University have developed a novel wireless, broadband, rechargeable, fully implantable brain sensor that has performed well in animal models for more than a year.
Researchers find key to toughness of glassStories 1 - 10 of 202
In a paper published online Feb. 26 in the journal Nature Communications, a Yale University team and collaborators propose a way of predicting whether a given glass will be brittle or ductile - a desirable property typically associated with metals like steel or aluminum - and assert that any glass c...
