In a recent article by PlantServices.com, which highlights some of the safety issues that are common in electrical power distribution systems, industry leaders from some of the top engineering companies such as Miller Engineering, Schneider Electric, EMP Engineering Services, and Fluke, offered great insight on how to stay safe and prevent problems when working with [...]
We know the direction of heat transfer is from hotter to cooler, but sometimes the temperatures we measure can be misleading. Particularly, when the process of transfer is still in transition, the temperatures will not have peaked yet. Also when a surface is being strongly influenced by outside forces—such as evaporation, sun, wind [...]
