Operating historic electric trolley cars in a modern urban environment can be a challenge. Safe operation requires proper training, both in the classroom and on city streets. Created by Old Pueblo... More > Trolley, Inc., "Running Point" serves as one component in a comprehensive motorman and conductor education program. Within its pages you'll find basic information about electric streetcars and their operation, with the Birney Safety Car used as an example on urban right-of-way in Tucson, Arizona and Dallas, Texas. (Note: While it is fairly comprehensive, this book cannot substitute for a hands-on training program. To operate a car on city streets, a motorman must be officially certified, and you may have to obtain a permit from the Department of Motor Vehicles.)< Less

It... More > is intended for students of engineering, mathematics, and physics, with emphasis on applications. The new topics in this edition offer the instructors the option to teach a theory oriented course on partial differential equations or a course with heavier emphasis on Fourier series and boundary value problems. Beyond the core material for a basic course on partial differential equations, the book includes a number of more specialized topics that the instructor can cover or use as research projects at his or her discretion. The book contains hundreds of completely worked out examples to help students assimilate the new topics. The style is easy to follow and speaks directly to the reader. The book comes with a companion student solutions manual that the reader can download for free from the author’s website.< Less

The subject selected for this 2013 study is the Space Elevator Tether Climber. The objective of the one year study was to survey current concepts and technologies related to tether climbers,... More > identify critical issues, questions, and concerns, assess their impact on the development of space elevators, and project towards the future. The following are a few of the conclusions:
• The study used the concept of “constant power” as a baseline because of its ability to lower design requirements on the tether climber.
• The mass breakout of 6 MT for a climber and 14 MT for customer payloads seems feasible. The estimate is that with a travel time of one week to GEO seven tether climbers can be on a tether simultaneously.
• The communication architecture should be integrated into the space elevator infrastructure and nodal layout.
• Solar power, as the sole source, appears achievable.
• The use of laser power as the sole source also seems achievable.< Less
