Bird Electronic Corp. chose a unique way to celebrate the production of its 300,000th Model 43 Wattmeter. The Solon, OH firm gold plated that meter when it came off the line and put it up for auction. Funds from the month-long auction, which closed after press time, will be donated to a charity of the winning bidder's choice. Bird began making the Model 43 in 1952.

The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
