The History of Electrical Vehicle

The History of Electrical Vehicle
The history of electric vehicles began earlier than many believe, as early as in the nineteenth century! Indeed, some historians mention that Scotsman Robert Anderson would have invented an electric car in 1830. Then, in 1835, in Groningen, Netherlands, Sibrandus Stratingh would have developed an experimental electric car on a small scale. In the late 1800s, in Europe, Electrical Engineers Gustave Trouvé (France, 1881) and Thomas Parker (England, 1895) left their mark by offering electric cars that could carry several passengers. The famous Ferdinand Porsche, founder of the Porsche (1931) and Volkswagen (1937) brands, unveiled the Egger Lohner C2 Phaeton P1 in 1898, which was powered by two electric wheel motors.

Emergency Response on a Damaged Building Structure
Sudden damage to a building structure can pose a significant risk to the public. Thus, whether the damage appears following a fire, a vehicle impact or inadequate construction works, the subsidence or partial collapse of a building necessitates a rapid preliminary assessment of the structure to identify the extent and cause of the failure of the building structure. If possible, the building will be stabilized to secure the site. This assessment will limit the development of damage and implement the necessary measures to ensure the safety of users and the public.

Système électrique - Les types de fusible
Lorsque l'on effectue une évaluation pour déterminer quelle sera la protection à installer, il devient nécessaire de tenir compte des caractéristiques des fusibles afin qu’ils puissent fonctionner de façon efficace et sécuritaire. Les caractéristiques dont il est question sont le type de fusible et la capacité de rupture. Il est à noter que la capacité de rupture fait également partie des caractéristiques essentielles à tenir compte pour les disjoncteurs, soit l’autre principal type de dispositif pouvant être utilisé pour protéger un circuit électrique.

Les catalyseurs : plus précieux que de l’or!

Roof Ice Dams
Ice dams are accumulations of ice that usually form on the roof of certain types of houses/buildings next to roof overhangs. When snow melts on a roof, these dams promote the accumulation of water and significant infiltration inside the building. The question we propose to answer is the following: why are these houses/buildings affected by ice dams and not others?

Contamination of polymer pipes: the importance of a good investigation
Pour plusieurs raisons, l’utilisation des conduites de polymère est très répandue autant en plomberie résidentielle qu’en plomberie commerciale. Tant au coût d’achat qu’à la vitesse d’installation, les conduites de polymère ont un net avantage sur les conduites métalliques (cuivre, fonte, etc.).
