In high-seismic regions, new facilities often are engineered with passive protective systems that provide overall seismic protection. But often, existing facilities are conventional fixed-base buildings in which seismic demands on sensitive equipment located within are significantly amplified. In such buildings, sensitive equipment needs to be secured from these damaging earthquake effects.
A new article shows the potential applications for Google Glass in the surgical setting, particularly in relation to training. Personal portable information technology is advancing at a breathtaking speed. Google has recently introduced Glass, a device that is worn like conventional glasses, but that combines a computerized central processing unit, touchpad, display screen, high-definition camera, microphone, bone-conduction transducer, and wireless connectivity.

Electronic controls and sensing in industrial applications enables or greatly improves many aspects of manufacturing, machining and production. However, electronics must survive within the harsh environments used to produce materials such as steel, petroleum products and chemicals, or in mines where the environment is extremely hot, dirty and humid. This article examines some of the key design obstacles and includes worst-case design techniques to achieve survivable solutions for industrial applications.
