  • Mems Like Silicon Surface Micro
    955 words
    Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) is the integration of mechanical elements, sensors, actuators and electronics on a common silicon substrate using micro fabrication techniques. MEMS are a hot area of research because they integrate sensing, analyzing and responding on the same silicon substrate hence promising realization of complete systems-on-a-chip. As MEMS are manufactured using batch fabrication techniques similar to IC technology, MEMS are expected t...
  • Mechanical Machines At A Job
    285 words
    People and Machines The problem is not with the machine: it is with the man who allows himself to become mechanical. People work on machines all day long. Many of these people have worked on a single machine for some years. The longer the people have worked on a single machine, the more they become adept in the use of the machine. When the time comes for a more advanced machine to be installed, such as a computer, the worker may not be able to cope with the massive change. The computer is an exa...

The similarities in t...
  • Ignition Interlock System
    1,010 words
    The Ignition Interlock for Drunk Drivers The ignition interlock is a high tech system that eveuates the persons BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) to see if the individual has been drinking. The device works like a normal Breathalyzer. The device is mounted on the dashboard and in order for the car to start the individual must blow into the machine. The machine then evaluates the persons BAC and if that person shows no sign of alcohol use the car will start. If the results come back saying he has consu...
  • Machine Metal
    517 words
    During the Industrial boom of the early 1700's, no one would have thought that these inventions and ideas could shape the world we live in today, especially then. You do not have to be a historian to know that, with new inventions comes more money; so economically this was revolutionary. For example, the lathe is the oldest and simplest known machine tool. Normally used by carpenters, these were used to make decorative table legs, columns, etc. It was late 17th Century when clockmakers, builders...
  • Circuit Design And The Machine Tables
    435 words
    A turing machine can be defined as a "device with a finite number of internal configurations, each of which involves the machine's being in one of a finite number of states". This means that in a machine there are certain inputs that when implemented will produce a certain output. These combinations of inputs can be used in a machine table to show the outputs for each state. By looking at a machine table one will be able to know which combination of inputs is related to the different states and ...
  • Use Of Recycled Paper
    822 words
    In the 1790's members of the industry in both Paris and London were working on inventions to try to mechanism paper-making. In England John Dickenson produced the cylinder machine that was operational by 1809. Although useful for smaller enterprises, this lacked the large scale potential of the machine resulting from the invention of Nicholas-Louis Robert in Paris, which had a more complicated incubation period. The last of the early improvements to this machine were financed by the Fourdrinier ...

  • Pascal's Triangle And The Adding Machine
    490 words
    Blaise Pascal Blaise Pascal was born on June 19, 1623 in Clermont-Ferrand, France and died August 19, 1662 of stomach cancer. Pascal was not only a great mathematician, he was also a man of great knowledge. Philosopher, mathematician, inventor, and scientific genius are just a few of the things he became in his life. Pascal helped create many things for this world as a whole, like when he invented the barometer, the hydraulic press, and of course (my personal favorite) the syringe. To the mathem...
  • Drill Press As A Milling Machine
    638 words
    Drilling holes is something most of us have done, whether as part of a hobby, or for our jobs. One of the basic tools for the homeowner, the handyman, or a contractor is an electric drill. While hand-held power drills are some of the most used tools in the box, they are not necessarily the most accurate. When you need an exact hole drilled at a precise angle, or maybe a hundred of these holes, then the tool you want is a Drill Press. The drill press is a larger version of a hand drill with addit...

The setting is the future of Earth, and a great war had just been won against an enemy race. Two men, Swift and Henderson, are debating over who really won the war for Earth: the giant strategy computer known as Multivac, or the men in charge of making the maneuvers and programming the computer. John Henderson is an excitable man, while Lamar Swift, t...
  • Use Due To The Trench Warfare

He built machines that could travel over snow. Bombardier was born in the rural community of Valcourt, Quebec...
  • Express Minimum Happiness By A Number
    591 words
    All of us when introduced to the real world learn to count things or ideas. It's number, which gives us happiness, sorrow, jealousy or pain.

  • Invention Of The Sewing Machine
    415 words
    Sewing Machines, in the opinion of the seamstress, are one of the most wonderful inventions in history. I remember when I started sewing in the sixth grade with only a needle and some thread at hand. The process of making a simple pillow was tedious and frustrating. My projects continued on like such until my fifteenth birthday, when I received a new Brother Sewing Machine from my grandparents. This gift allowed my creativity to flow on a whole new level. I have a bad habit of not so much as pic...
  • Sample's Temperature
    297 words
    Summary: Aluminum and steel were tested over three different temperature readings. One of each sample was put into an oven at about 245^0 F, a bath of ice water and finally in dry ice at about -30^0 F. After the metal sample's temperature was changed by exposure to each external stimulus, we proceeded to break each sample. The Impact Test Machine was used to break the steel sample. The CIM-24 was used to break the aluminum sample. Procedure: The pendulum was raised up to the top position just pr...
