A Lexicon of Patent Jargon [IP Corner]
Often when I am doing work related to patents and IP, I find myself talking a different language. It is a strange legal dialect that patent lawyers have developed over many years. Now while its original purpose was ...
Broadening Our Horizons [Notes from the Editor]
As many of you will be aware,IEEE Consumer Electronics Magazine evolved from the quarterly newsletter of the IEEE Consumer Electronics (CE) Society. Jim Farmer edited the newsletter before I took over from him during 2010. ...
Use of industrial by-products and natural media to adsorb nutrients, metals and organic carbon from drinking water
Filtration technology is well established in the water sector but is limited by inability to remove targeted contaminants, found in surface and groundwater, which can be damaging to human health. This study optimises the ...
A Matter of Timing: Consumer Electronics & Network Time
Network time protocol (NTP) has become widely used across the Internet to synchronize clocks on computers and, more recently, on a wide variety of handheld devices. You are using NTP on a daily basis without even knowing ...
Workplace Exposure to Bioaerosols in Podiatry Clinics
(Oxford Journals, 2012-01-03)
The aim of this study was to design and execute a pilot study to collect information on the personal exposure levels of podiatrists to microbial hazards in podiatry clinics and also to assess health and safety knowledge ...

Development of the meshless finite volume particle method with exact and efficient calculation of interparticle area
The Finite Volume Particle Method (FVPM) is a meshless method based on a definition of interparticle area which is closely analogous to cell face area in the classical finite volume method. In previous work, the interparticle ...
The use of digital resources in civil engineering education: Enhancing student learning and achieving accreditation criteria.
The use of digital resources in higher education has risen significantly over the last ten years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The challenge for educational instructors is in determining how to ...
Adaptive Mesh Multi-Scale Modelling of Tidal Hydraulics and Material Transport
Multi-scale modelling for structured meshes is achieved by nesting high resolution grids within lower resolution grids. By specifying high resolutions in areas of interest only, computational cost can be reduced. Adaptive ...
The effects of array configuration on the hydro-environmental impacts of tidal turbines.
Tidal stream turbines provide a technically viable means of generating electricity from a sustainable resource; however, economic viability will require the deployment of multiple devices in array formations in a manner ...
