Prince Albert’s Water, Oil Pipelines, and the Precautionary Principle – UrbanWorkbench

The City of Prince Albert in #Saskatchewan, #Canada has secured emergency water supply after almost two weeks of no water following an oil spill in the North Saskatchewan River by Husky Oil. Three different sources A 30km temporary water line was installed from the South Saskatchewan River to the City’s water treatment plant, and another waterline connects the Little Red River to the treatment plant. Stormwater retention ponds are being filled as a backup supply if needed. The event that…

A Programmer’s Guide to Microservices & SOA – Zenefits Engineering

Introduction SOA or Service Oriented Architecture has been one of the buzzwords among architects and senior-developers, appearing commonly in job descriptions for the last few years. However, most of the definitions of SOA online are riddled with formal words, such as the one from OASIS: “A paradigm for organizing and utilizing distributed capabilities that may be under the control of different ownership domains. It provides a uniform means to offer, discover, interact with and use capabilities to produce desired effects…

Smart Packaging Leads to Supply Chain Savings

by Rob Kaszubowski, Packaging Engineering Manager, Chainalytics Packaging is a unique beast. Every product you use, touch and consume requires some amount of packaging at some point in the supply chain. It’s so easy to take packaging for granted and forget that every packaging component has a specific purpose and can provide value to your product’s total cost of ownership. This seems especially true in food packaging, where the consumer’s main focus is to purchase, consume the product and toss…

How to be a Professional Engineer (PE) with IR Status?

I have been asked several times the steps and how to be a professional engineer having an IR status in Malaysia. Due to that, I thought it is better for me to write a special guide explaining step by step what should be done. I’ll try to make this guide as compact and short possible (but still resourceful) so that it won’t waste any of your time. 1. Register with BEM If you just graduate from university in Malaysia or…

Does A Chemical Engineering Student Wants to Be A Chemical Engineer?

Presently, I am actively teaching and supervising students. It is important to know our students. What I mean is not to know them very close but enough in order for us to know the best way to treat them based on who they are, their background, based on what they want to be and several other factors. One of the most frequent question I asked my student are what do you want to be after you graduated as a chemical…

Chemical Engineering World: Early February Random Musing

New Academic Semester Next week the new semester will start, which means busy time again. Undergraduate students will return and a new semester will proceed. This semester I will be teaching Process Control and Instrumentation (SKK3144) which carries 4 credits and Process Control Laboratory (SKK 3171) which carries 1 credit. Both subjects are very interesting, challenging and exciting. This time, the Process Control and Instrumentation subject will be conducted via the Problem Based Learning (PBL) approach. The 3rd year students…

Basics of Hydraulic System in Engineering

It is indeed very tough to see any industry without a slight touch of hydraulic system. Hydraulic system is crucial for various industries as well as our daily life routine, but its’ importance are occasionally unrealized by many. One of the most common hydraulic system application is in our vehicle breaking system. I’ll explain further about the breaking system later in this article. Anyway, from my previous experiences, I worked with several types of equipments and machineries employing hydraulic system.…

Chemical Engineering World: Energy Harvesting Future

We are witnessing the tremendous demand of energy by our very own eyes. The petroleum, natural gas, coal and others are non-renewable sources of energy that will soon deplete. Hence, efforts are driven on renewable energy such as solar, wind, water, biodiesel, biomass and so on. The renewable energy efforts are quite expensive since it is relatively new and not really establish yet. As a chemical engineer, we need to think, contribute and take some level of action towards promoting…

ChBE at Georgia Tech Lorraine, Summer 2014

This program (initiated in summer, 2006) is designed for students who have finished the sophomore level ChBE courses. Professor Meredith will lead the effort. Two ChBE courses will be offered: Thermodynamics II (ChBE 3130), and Transport Phenomena I (ChBE 3200). In addition, students will have the option to take technical, social science, or humanities electives. In the last four years, 16-22 ChBE students have participated in the program each year, and registered for ~10 credit hours. Several scholarships have been…

Industrial Tools at their Best

 What exactly are industrial tools? Let me provide my understanding on what industrial tools actually are. Briefly, industrial tools are equipment that can help making certain work in plant, refinery, workshop etc faster, smooth, easier and more accurate. Industrial tools are, crucially, an inevitable part of the industrial work. I witnessed and was directly involved using few industrial tools when I was involved in some projects such as internal pipeline chemical cleaning or the physical refinery plant annual shutdown. Let’s…
