An asteroid as big as the Rock of Gibraltar will streak past Earth on April 19 at a safe but uncomfortably close distance, according to astronomers. See the Space Daily Article.
A coalition of 24 states and localities have urged a federal court reviewing the merits of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Clean Power Plan to stall the agency’s recent motion to suspend a case challenging the controversial rule. See the Power Magazine article here.
03/16/2017 blog by Kennedy Maize in Power Magazine. “While doing some research for a book I’m working on, I came across a June 5, 1953 memo by Hyman Rickover, head of the naval reactors branch of the Atomic Energy Commission. For those readers who don’t know, Rickover is the father of nuclear power for electricity in the U.S., both for the U.S. Navy and for civilian reactors.” Read the whole article here.

Next-generation steel and metal alloys are a step closer to reality, thanks to an international research project. The work could overcome the problem of hydrogen alloy embrittlement that has led to catastrophic failures in major engineering and building projects. See the Science Daily article here.
Shell-and-tube heat exchangers are the backbone of the power generation, chemical process, petrochemical and pulp-and-paper industries. They are designed for a wide variety of services, from small-engine oil coolers to large nuclear steam generators. Heat exchangers come in many types and styles, but almost all are designed as unfired pressure vessels. Over the years, several industrial standards have been developed to help end users and manufacturers ensure that their heat exchange equipment will be designed with safety and consistency in mind. The principal reason why shell-and-tube heat exchangers have been so successful for so long is their ability to meet[...]
Bill O’Donnell, Sr., recently published “Handbook of Lessons Learned In Engineering, Design, Manufacturing and Construction.” It is intended for engineers, designers, manufacturers and constructors – depicting failures from thermal, structural, vibration, corrosion and other failure mechanisms. Read a sample of this book, Section 1 Designers’ Lessons. This book is now available for purchase on our website. Or, you can order it through Amazon.com.
Sure, some folks enjoy scaling mountains by their own power, but some of us might rather a helping hand on nature’s adventures thanks to technology. See the
Emerging technologies in the field of instrumentation and controls are poised to have a big impact on power production. While some technologies are still in the basic stages of research and development (R&D) and on the cusp of widespread adoption, others are now entering operating rooms to change our industry for the better.
