By Alan I. Marcus

Engineering in a Land-Grant Context is a quantity of well-crafted essays that ponder the federal government's first foray into greater schooling by way of reading engineering schooling on the nation's land-grant universities over the last a hundred and forty years. The authors display how that background has framed the current and recommend the way it is probably going to steer the fashioning of the long run. The specialist participants, all of whom have studied and written prominently at the background of engineering schooling, pay attention to revealing the serious developments and significant occasions of this 140-year historical past.

Its investigations into alpha cellulose production came to the same end. 23 Other forms of cornstalk pulp seemed more promising. Chemical digestion of stalks in caustic soda yielded a jelly-like pulp that could be molded. Called maizolith—cornstone—the substance was exceedingly dense and a good electrical insulator. Sweeney and his crew projected it as “knife handles, switch buttons, knobs, gears,” and other high-stress objects. They were even more optimistic about the pulp-like material that resulted from attacking cornstalks with pressurized steam.
