Rescuing Prometheus: Four Monumental Projects that Changed Our World

"A infrequent perception into commercial making plans on a big scale. .. very good. " --The Economist

Rescuing Prometheus is an eye-opening and marvelously informative examine a number of the technological initiatives that contributed to shaping the trendy international. Thomas P. Hughes specializes in 4 postwar initiatives whose vastness and complexity encouraged new know-how, new businesses, and new administration kinds. the 1st use of pcs to run structures used to be built for the SAGE air protection venture. The Atlas missile undertaking used to be so advanced it required the advance of platforms engineering so as to entire it. The Boston crucial Artery/Tunnel venture proven platforms engineering within the complicated crucible of a giant scale civilian roadway. and eventually, the origins of the net fostered the collegial administration sort that later might take over Silicon Valley and outline the trendy computing device undefined. With prepared perception, Hughes tells those attention-grabbing tales whereas supplying a riveting historical past of contemporary know-how and the administration structures that made it possible.

Thomas P. Hughes is Emeritus Mellon Professor of the background and Sociology of technological know-how on the collage of Pennsylvania and a Fellow of the yankee Academy of Arts and Sciences. His books contain American Genesis: A Century of Invention and know-how. at present a amazing traveling Professor at MIT, he lives in Philadelphia.

Computer Science and its Applications: Ubiquitous Information Technologies (Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering, Volume 330)

The sixth FTRA foreign convention on laptop technological know-how and its purposes (CSA-14) might be held in Guam, united states, Dec. 17 - 19, 2014. CSA-14 provides a complete convention involved in a number of the features of advances in engineering platforms in machine technology, and functions, together with ubiquitous computing, U-Health care approach, titanic facts, UI/UX for human-centric computing, Computing provider, Bioinformatics and Bio-Inspired Computing and may exhibit fresh advances on quite a few features of computing expertise, Ubiquitous Computing providers and its software.

Globalizing Research and Development

The e-book makes use of interview and survey details from three hundred of the world's best commercial agencies to supply an in-depth research of the problems when it comes to the internationalisation of R & D by way of multinational firms. The viewpoints of primary coordinating R & D devices and their abroad subsidiaries are analysed.

Example text

In attempting to remove any residual effects of this suspension system on the free-free modes, an analytical technique (filtering of data) was attempted. Due to round-off errors in the data, instead of removing any unwanted effects, the process introduced three false modes in addition to the actual modes. Incorporating these modes into the control stability analysis indicated an unstable vehicle. The initial launch was held up for 2 weeks to sort out the problem. This problem got played in a Fortune magazine feature article.

Skylab started out as a “wet workshop,” which was an active SVB stage outfitted on the ground with laboratories, etc. After the SIV B burn, the stage would be purged and made ready as a workshop. The observatory, ATM, was launched separately and was first to be a free flyer or docked with the spent SIV B stage, the workshop. As the program evolved, these concepts were dropped, with the basic SIV B stage being remanufactured to being a dry workshop. In other words, it was built and launched as a combined ATM and workshop with the docking adapter.

Propellant ducts had to have both their structures and acoustics determined as did the cavitation compliances of turbopumps. Verification required testing for many modes and instrumenting both the fluid and the structure. Single-point random structural dynamic testing technology was developed and applied to the lox tank/bulkhead hydroelastic testing. Defining and ensuring correct and known test boundary conditions were also major issues. , associated with problems such as pogo that occurred on Saturn V.
