Analysis of thermal errors in a high-speed micro-milling spindle
Abstract Thermally induced errors account for the majority of fabrication accuracy loss in an uncompensated machine tool. This issue is particularly relevant in the micro-machining arena due to theExpand
Questions on the Economic Value of the Overhead Grounded Wire
  • E. Creighton
  • Engineering
  • Transactions of the American Institute of…
Overhead grounded wires have been in extensive use since the construction of the earliest transmission circuits. The fundamental theory of their protective value is based on Faraday's ice-pailExpand
Protection of electrical transmission lines
  • E. Creighton
  • Computer Science
  • Proceedings of the American Institute of…
TLDR
The electrostatic capacities of the line wires are so changed by the accidental grounds, that considerable space is given to this subject under the three heads of analogy, physical theory, and mathematical solutions. Expand
Theory of parallel grounded wires and production of high frequencies in transmission lines
  • E. Creighton
  • Engineering
  • Proceedings of the American Institute of…
  • 1 June 1916
The overhead grounded wire is used for three purposes: lightning protection, mechanical support for towers, and a test circuit. The functions of the grounded wire are subdivided into at least fourExpand

Experiences in testing porcelain
  • E. Creighton
  • Engineering
  • Proceedings of the American Institute of…
The paper gives the results of numerous experiences in testing porcelain insulators particularly in regard to porosity, absorption of water, surface leakage and dielectric losses. Considerable energyExpand
Measurements of lightning, aluminum lightning-arresters, earth resistances, cement resistances, and kindred tests
  • E. Creighton
  • Engineering
  • Proceedings of the American Institute of…
During the past year investigations have been continued in the study of lightning and the operation of lightning-arresters on transmission lines. Another effort was made to supplement laboratoryExpand
The Present Status of Aluminum-Cell Lightning Arresters
  • E. Creighton
  • Engineering
  • Transactions of the American Institute of…
This paper gives a brief survey of the conditions of operation of aluminum-cell arresters, without any description of the forms of the arresters. References are made to recent investigations ofExpand
New principles in the design of lightning arresters
  • E. Creighton
  • Computer Science
  • Proceedings of the American Institute of…
The installation of lightning arresters is of the nature of an insurance. A certain percentage of the cost of the apparatus can reasonably be invested as a safeguard in protecting the apparatus.Expand
On deviations from standard practise in lightning arresters
  • E. Creighton
  • Engineering
  • Journal of the American Institute of Electrical…
This paper is an endeavor to answer questions of practise and criticism of arresters brought out by an investigation conducted by the Protective Devices Committee. For the most part practise inExpand
