Material Selection and Processing

The University of Cambridge Department of Engineering operates a very informative site on material selection and processing. Its purpose is "to aid good practice in the selection of materials for product design." Of the many features offered on the site, a particularly valuable section is the Process Encyclopedia. This has a long list of manufacturing processes with detailed descriptions and...

The Pitch Drop Experiment

Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's longest-running laboratory experiment, the Pitch Drop Experiment was inaugurated by Professor Thomas Parnell in 1927 to illustrate that everyday materials can behave in truly strange ways. To start, Dr. Parnell took a sample of pitch, a derivative of tar commonly used to seal boats, and heated it. He then poured it into a sealed stem and...
