Simulator computes evacuation scenarios for major events Predicting how large numbers of visitors to major events will behave is difficult, even using evidence based on past experience. To prevent disasters, however, the police, rescue services and event organizers have to be able to identify dangerous bottlenecks, hidden obstacles and unexpected escape routes in advance. A research group with engineers and computer scientists at Technische Universität München...

A transistor, made of a solid piece of semiconductor material, is a semiconductor device used to amplify and switch electronic signals. It has at least three terminals for connection to an external circuit. A voltage or current applied to one pair of transistor's terminals changes the current flowing through another pair of terminals. The transistor amplifies the signal since the controlled power can be much more than the controlling power. The transistor is a fundamental building block of...

Computer hardware describes the physical components that make up a personal computer. Operating systems and many software applications can be installed on hardware in order to perform the operator's desired functions. Most personal computers consist of a chassis in a tower shape, a desktop, all of which contain hardware components. The main component inside the case of the computer is the motherboard. It is a large rectangular board with incorporated circuits that connect things to the...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
