Physics of Dielectrics for the Engineer is a systematic attempt to clarify and correlate advanced concepts underlying the physics of dielectrics. It reviews the basics of electrostatics, the different models for the polarizability of atoms and molecules, and the macroscopic permittivity. It also discusses the behavior of matter in an alternating field in relation to complex permittivity, the interactions between field and matter, dissipative effects under high electric fields, the wide-gap semiconductor model, the types of charge carriers, and the main disruptive processes. Organized into three parts encompassing 12 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the physical concepts involved in the behavior of insulating materials subjected to high electric fields. It then explores the potential of a group of charges, and dipoles induced in an applied field. The book explains statistical theories of dipole orientation in an applied field and theories relating molecular and macroscopic quantities. The propagation of an electromagnetic wave, dipole relaxation of defects in crystal lattices, and space-charge polarization and relaxation are also discussed. The book explains the uni-dimensional polar lattice, intrinsic and impurity conduction in wide-gap semiconductors, thermal runaway, and collision breakdown. Many problems with corresponding solutions are included to assist the reader. This book will benefit electrical engineers, as well as electrical engineering students, scientists, and technicians.

A former broadcaster and journalist, Bourgeois-Doyle (corporate governance, National Research Council of Canada) has contributed to numerous books, articles, TV features, and radio programs on science history. Here he offers general readers a biography of Elsie MacGill (1905-1980), the world's first female aeronautical engineer and professional aircraft designer. The daughter of suffragist judge Helen MacGill (1864-1947), she also served on Canada's Royal Commission on the Status of Women from its founding in 1967, to the issuance of its report in 1970, calling for a complete rethinking of attitudes and policies towards women in Canada, and subsequently traveled the country lobbying for implementation of the recommended changes.

The bestseller cookbook in Scandinavia now available in English for engineers, geeks, nerds and their friends across the world! What kind of relationship does an engineer have with food? What does an engineer eat? How does he prepare a meal? How does he organise the various stages of the cooking process? What drives him? Technical men or women behave above all rationally. They solve problems and follow through. The guests of the engineer are always satisfied, the food is served on time, and nothing gets left over. Managing the whole is an intellectual challenge for the engineer and preparing food successfully gives him deep pleasure. This book gives a systematic presentation of the principles behind the engineer’s cooking skills. It helps the engineer to see what is essential in food, to recognise his own strengths, and to adapt his skills to make good food. For those not technically educated, the book offers an exhilarating insight into the inner life of the engineer – and dozens of practical and clearly-illustrated recipes that allow everyone to prepare delicious food easily. The recipes in the book are typical tried-and-tested engineer foods, such as cabbage rolls, meat loaf, prawn salad, stuffed peppers and strawberry cake. In addition to the recipes some useful dining skills are described, for instance, setting the table, seating the guests, toasting, and behaving at a restaurant.

This story contains the horrors of the Second World War committed in Nazi Germany. A stigma at the time was that all Germans were Nazis but this story renounces that belief. The Engineer is the ageless story of good versus evil, light versus darkness, and the triumph of the human spirit. A man of great Christian faith named Wolfgang Spreitzel is given the impossible task of freeing people from certain death at the Dachau concentration camp. As a train engineer for the state run railroad he has delivered people into Dachau and watched in horror as these people were unloaded from cattle cars to certain death. It is after one of these trips that God begins to reveal a plan for Wolfgang to follow. As Wolfgang follows God's instruction he is given some of the most unlikely partners to accomplish it. These steps of faith lead some to God's amazing grace, the road to redemption, love for the unloved, and hope for the hopeless. This novel’s believable characters defy the Nazis and begin to free captive people from the death trains. This is accomplished by a man on a mission from God. He is simply known as The Engineer.

To enhance the nation's economic productivity and improve the quality of life worldwide, engineering education in the United States must anticipate and adapt to the dramatic changes of engineering practice. The Engineer of 2020 urges the engineering profession to recognize what engineers can build for the future through a wide range of leadership roles in industry, government, and academia--not just through technical jobs. Engineering schools should attract the best and brightest students and be open to new teaching and training approaches. With the appropriate education and training, the engineer of the future will be called upon to become a leader not only in business but also in nonprofit and government sectors. The book finds that the next several decades will offer more opportunities for engineers, with exciting possibilities expected from nanotechnology, information technology, and bioengineering. Other engineering applications, such as transgenic food, technologies that affect personal privacy, and nuclear technologies, raise complex social and ethical challenges. Future engineers must be prepared to help the public consider and resolve these dilemmas along with challenges that will arise from new global competition, requiring thoughtful and concerted action if engineering in the United States is to retain its vibrancy and strength.
