Core Technologies

  1. 1. <ul><li>There are several engineering resources (core technologies) that are the “building blocks” of all technological systems. </li></ul>Core Technologies
  2. 2. <ul><li>Mechanical Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Structural Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Electrical Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Electronic Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Fluid Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Optical Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Thermal Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Biotechnology </li></ul><ul><li>Materials Technology </li></ul>Core Technologies
  3. 3. <ul><li>The technology of putting together mechanical parts to produce, control, and transmit motion </li></ul><ul><li>Examples: gear systems in a car transmission, brakes on a bicycle, agitator in a washing machine, latch on a door </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The technology of putting mechanical parts and materials together to create supports, containers, shelters, connectors, and functional shapes </li></ul><ul><li>Example applications: legs on a chair, city water tower, swimming pool, roadways, bridges, storm sewer, airplane wing, satellite antenna disc </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from electrical energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Example applications: power plant generator, flashlight, electric motor in a can opener, doorbell, electric heater, hair dryer </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The technology of using small amounts of electricity for controlling; detecting; and information collecting, storing, retrieving, processing and communicating </li></ul><ul><li>Example applications: thermostat for controlling temperature, a metal detector, video tape recorder, computer, pocket calculator, telephone, radio, television </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>The technology of using fluid, either gaseous (pneumatics) or liquid (hydraulic) to apply force or to transport. </li></ul><ul><li>Example applications: air brakes on a truck, tires on a car, airfoils on an airplane, warm-air heating ducts, hydraulic jack, plumbing in a school </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The technology of producing light; using light for information collecting, storing, retrieving, processing and communicating; and using light to do work. </li></ul><ul><li>Example applications: light bulb, light-emitting diode, lenses to magnify or reduce, laser speed detector, laser compact disk, fiber-optic telephone communication, laser cutting tools, laser surgical instruments </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>The technology of producing, storing, controlling, transmitting and getting work from heat energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Example applications: furnace, hot water heater, toaster, insulation, heat exchanger, refrigerator, jet engine, hot air balloon </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>The technology of using, adapting, and altering organisms and biological processes for a desired outcome. </li></ul><ul><li>Example applications: stain “eating” enzymes in detergent, bacteria “leaching” of metals from ore, altering plant genes to produce better crops </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>The technology of producing, altering, and combining materials. </li></ul><ul><li>Example applications: producing paper from wood, producing aluminum from ore, drilling holes in wood, annealing to soften metal, laminating wood </li></ul>
