Pneu Scooter: Motor Testing
Here are two of the first test-spins of the custom pneumatic wheel-motor for my latest scooter project. The motor is a three-phase brushless outrunner, designed for about 1600rpm at 33V and a peak torque of about 5ft-lbf. The controller is also custom, a 48V/1kW field-oriented synchronous AC drive that still has some software? glitches to work out. More info: http://scolton.blogspot.com/search/label/scooter.
Time domain method for accurate non-destructive determination of concrete pavement thickness (A)
The material in this thesis focuses on the problem of accurately determining the thickness of a concrete pavement layer via non-destructive means. Existing methods are reviewed, and limitations governing their use outlined. An alternative method based on isolating P-waves reflected off the pavement base in the time-domain is proposed. Potential advantages over established methods are that prior knowledge of P-wave velocity and geometrical correction factors are not required. Furthermore the meth
A Search Engine That Looks for Specific Files
FileDigg is a search engine that looks for specific files. Do you want only PowerPoint Files in your search? Go to FileDigg. Do you want only Word documents in your search? Go to FileDigg. This search engine is powered by Google. (This is a slideshow, not a video. There is no narration.)

People benefit from the work of meteorologists on a daily basis. Weather forecasts enable you to plan everything from what you'll wear to whether weekend activities should be indoors or outdoors. But when severe weather approaches, meteorologists serve what is perhaps their most important function in society. In this adapted video segment from ZOOM, one student describes how her interest in observing the weather led her to volunteer at a local weather center where she gains hands-on experience w
Jupiter: Earth's Shield
More than 155 planets have been found outside of our solar system since the first extra-solar planet was identified in 1995. The search has long been heavily biased towards finding massive planets with short orbits. Now, to find an Earth-like planet, scientists are looking for a planetary setup that is similar to our own, in which a Jupiter-like planet lies a good distance away from its sun. This video segment adapted from NOVA explores how the arrangement of planets in our solar system may have
