Technology, Values, and Ethics : A Framework
(Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, IIT, 1992-02-01)
Three words of my title--"technology", "values", and "ethics"--have this in common: they have all been used in enough different ways to be dangerous. To provide the framework my title promises, I shall have to distinguish ...
Engineering Codes of Ethics : Analysis and Applications
(Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, IIT, 1992-07-10)
This paper uses the events leading up to the explosion of the Challenger to begin a discussion about the important role professional codes of ethics play in shaping how professionals should respond to ethical questions and ...
Some Paradoxes of Whistleblowing
(Philosophy Documentation Center, 1996)
By "paradox" I mean an apparent- and in this case, real-inconsistency between theory (our systematic understanding of whistleblowing) and the facts (what we actually know, or think we know, about whistleblowing). What ...
Ethics and Biotechnology - Identifying Issues in the Face of Uncertainities
(Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, IIT, 1995)
Reflections on the History of Engineering in the United States : A Preface to Engineering Ethics
(Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, IIT, 1992-11-19)
This paper traces the history of the profession of engineering in the United States as a way to gain a better understanding of the field of engineering and of engineering ethics.
Controller performance assessment by frequency domain techniques
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 1997-06)
A system identification based method for assessing the performance of closed-loop systems is proposed, utilizing measures which coincide naturally with classical and modern frequency domain design specifications. Standard ...
Modeling, monitoring and control strategies for high temperature short time pasteurization systems - 1. Empirical model development
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 1998-02)
Dynamic models of high temperature short time (HTST) pasteurization systems can be developed by using empirical model development paradigms such as transfer functions and times series models. Properly designed experiments ...
FLIP-FLOP JET NOZZLE EXTENDED TO SUPERSONIC FLOWS
(AMER INST AERONAUT ASTRONAUT, 1993-06)
An experiment studying a fluidically oscillated rectangular jet flow was conducted. The Mach number was varied over a range from low subsonic to supersonic. Unsteady velocity and pressure measurements were made using hot ...
Automated control and monitoring of thermal processing using high temperature, short time pasteurization
(AMER DAIRY SCIENCE ASSOC, 1997-10)
High temperature, short time pasteurization was used to evaluate a computer-based system for controlling the pasteurization process, acquiring data, and monitoring records. Software was used for the control of hot water ...
MATHEMATICAL-MODELS OF COCURRENT SPRAY-DRYING
(AMER CHEMICAL SOC, 1995-10)
A steady state mathematical model for a cocurrent spray dryer-is developed. The model includes the mass, momentum, and energy balances for a single drying droplet as well as the total energy and mass balances of the drying ...
