By 1958, the nascent environmental engineering profession had moved from wartime activities into the space age, and this journal began documenting the evolution of an industry. Over the past five decades and under as many titles, the Journal has witnessed advances into contamination control, ecological sciences, and nanotechnology, to name a few.

China entered the nuclear and space age as a result of a crusade that began almost as soon as the People's Liberation Army (PLA) had completed the conquest of the mainland. In this article we will comment on some aspects of the entire nuclear programme over the past 30 years as it has affected the strategic role of the PLA.1

Women’s departure or nonentrance into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics professions, particularly engineering, has been a lively source of scholarly inquiry for the past three decades. Much of the literature in this area has been with solely female samples of participants, begging the question as to whether or not men and women either choose to leave the profession or not enter for the same or similar reasons. This present study collected a large sample of men ( n = 1,273) who had either left or never entered the engineering profession and compared their responses to a large sample of women ( n = 1,235) on a set of categorical response variables. Using the perspective of the Theory of Work Adjustment, our results suggest that there are gender differences in reasons for departure, raising the possibility that engineering climates differentially reinforce needs for men and women. Implications of this research are discussed.

The scope of the present communication is the current status of environmental engineering in Portugal. The different approaches concerning the environmental engineering courses available at undergraduate levels as well as some post-graduation studies are described. Furthermore, an analysis based on strengths, weakness, opportunities and trend issues regarding the environmental engineering profession in Portugal is presented.

Over the years, Nigerian researchers in environmental engineering and chemistry have been evaluating a variety of technologies for the remediation of petroleum industry polluted surface and groundwater. In this mini-review, the recent advances in this regard over the past two years were evaluated. This was done as an appraisal of research efforts to understand the current research trend and gain a proper perspective of the required/needed future approach in the research area. It was observed that most studies are still focusing on evaluating the problems instead of finding actual solutions. Development of workable and novel solutions are urgently needed. It can be in the form of better remediation techniques or via the development of alternative technologies for utilizing the waste/pollutant materials. The paper has given a clear opinion on the progress of environmental protection and sustainability in the Nigerian context. The environmental regulations scenario in the country is marred by malpractices and corruption more stringent policy enforcement will help in the achievement of environmental protection.

Considerable knowledge and experience has been developed over the past 40 years in the engineering profession regarding the seismic performance and analysis of dams for earthquake shaking. However, comparatively limited experience is available regarding the evaluation of dams for the effects of foundation fault rupture during earthquakes. This paper examines the factors to be considered in the evaluation of embankment dams for foundation faulting, and illustrates the analysis of dam response under foundation faulting by means of a case history, the seismic evaluation of Aviemore Dam.

AbstractThe Semiconductor Equipment Division of Eaton has, for the past year, supplied Simox wafers to various companies and laboratories throughout the world. A review will be presented of the operation in a production mode of the NV-200 Oxygen Implanter. Improvements in the production version will be related to both particulate counts and elemental contamination on the wafers. The addition of a polysilicon liner in the beamline has greatly reduced the heavy metal and carbon contamination levels in the machine. Historical Sims and Auger data will be presented to show these effects. The most recent production machine is operating on the manufacturing floor. Sims data from wafers implanted in October 1987 will be presented.
