Title: Third annual symposium on Frontiers of Engineering: Reports on leading edge engineering from the 1997 NAE symposium

Abstract

This book is the third publication highlighting the presentations of the National Academy of Engineering's (NAE) symposium series, Frontiers of Engineering. The Third Annual NAE Symposium on Frontiers of Engineering was held September 18-20, 1997, at the Beckman Center in Irvine, California. The 101 emerging engineering leaders from industry, academia, and federal laboratories who attended the meeting heard presentations and discussed pioneering research and technical work in a variety of engineering fields. Symposium speakers were asked to prepare extended abstracts of their presentations, and those papers are contained herein. Fifteen papers are organized under the following five headings: biomechanics, sensors and control for manufacturing processes, safety and security issues, decision-making tools for design and manufacturing, and intelligent transportation systems. Talks focused on such topics as implant design and technology, design and application of optical fiber sensors, quadrupole resonance explosive detection systems, multicriteria evaluation of manufacturing performance, and automated highway systems. The after-dinner speech, which focused on today's rapid pace of change, is also included.
