Hello. I am a mechanical engineer, and right now, we are beginning to work on the foundations of a large structure. The structural engineers often refer to different terms, all of which I used to think were different ways of saying "foundation". Can you please explain to me (or direct me to a website with good illustrations) the difference between 'concrete piles' (both cast, and auger, and any others), 'caissons', and 'foundations'? I really appreciate it!

As the semiconductor industry races to keep pace with Mooreâ€™s Law, which regards the doubling of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits, lithography hardware systems are not always able to provide a quality image for creating circuits. Download Now
Current integrated circuit (IC) designs are complex, which can result in different voltages being located close to one another. To prevent time dependent dielectric breakdown (TTDB), it is essential to incorporate space rules within IC design. Download Now
