Australian Inventions Thinking different Inthe US military announced to the world that it had developed the Lockheed F Nighthawk stealth fighter, which it believed could not be detected by radar. Seeing a challenge, Australian scientists at the CSIRO speculated that if the plane could not be detected, perhaps the turbulence it made passing through air could be.
The invention of the Jindalee Radar System continued a long line of Australian inventiveness. Some of the inventions, such as the notepad and power board, were so simple they beged the question as to why they had never been invented before.
Perhaps their invention could be attributed to the liberation from traditional thinking that comes from living in a multicultural society. Whereas other cultures will continue with practices because it is the way things have always been done, in Australia, things are done in a diversity of ways, which makes Australians more inclined to conceive of the best way of doing things rather than just holding onto the past.
Some of the inventions, such as the stump jump plough, refrigerator and dual flush toilet, were in response to Australia's unique environmental conditions.
Perhaps their invention could be seen as an example of how different environments present different challenges that require novel solutions. Some of the inventions, such as powered flight, nuclear fusion, wi-fi internet, penicillin and the Jindalee radar system, could be attributed to a willingness of Australians to collaborate across national boundaries rather than monopolise ideas for nationalistic reasons.
By sharing their own ideas, inventors gained access to the ideas of others and were able to achieve what they otherwise might not have.
This first edition of Cost Analysis and Estimating for Engineering and Management provides the latest principles and techniques for the evaluation of engineering design. The theme for the book begins with four chapters devoted to an analysis of labor, material, accounting, and forecasting. The era between , better known as the 20th century, witnessed the birth of some of the most remarkable creations. Right from electronic gadgets, automobiles, to articles of everyday use; these inventions stupefied the world at .

Did mobile phone change throughout the last 20 years of the 20Th Century.
Finally, some of the inventions, such as the hills hoist, ugg boot, wine cask and inflatable escape slide, could be attributed to a willingness to elevate pragmatism above aesthetic or cultural beauty. Had the inventors worried more about the look of things, perhaps none would have been invented.
Australian Prehistory Grinding stones — Excavations of Cuddle Springs in north central NSW has found evidence of grinding stones dating back 30, years. These predate all other grinding stones around the world by 20, years. The rudder — Rudders provide the means to steer boats in a straight line, particularly in adverse environmental conditions.
Ancient Egyptians had a form of a rudder, which was a long paddle hang over one side. It is believed that Ancient Romans and Chinese invented the first stern mounted rudder in the 1st century AD.
The Bradshaw paintings Gwion Gwion on the walls of the Kimberly, indicate that ancient Australians used stern mounted rudders more than 17, years ago.
Could it be a rudder 16, years before rudders were believed to have been invented? Boomerangs — A boomerang is a hunting tool that is constructed as a flat aerofoil designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. It allows the hunter to throw a very heavy stick with great accuracy and sufficient power to break the legs of a kangaroo and neck of an emu.
Cave paintings in the Kimberly indicate that boomerangs had developed a ceremonial funciton at least 17, years. Colonial era Pre-paid postage - Although he might not be remembered fondly by stamp collectors, the colonial Postmaster-General of New South Wales, James Raymond, introduced the world's first pre-paid postal system and spared many customers the need to lick glue for adhesive of stamps.
He was commissioned by a brewery to build a machine that cooled beer. By varying the speed at which the two wires were extracted, the torpedo could be steered to the left or right by an operator on the shore. It was invented by Henry Sutton in Ballarat. The invention greatly increased the profitability of the wool industry.
He designed it primarily to drill rock and to dig coal. He subsequently built the world's first box-kite, hitched four together, added an engine and flew five metres. Hargrave corresponded freely with other aviation pioneers, including the Wright Brothers, but unlike the Americans who monopolised their ideas, Hargrave never patented his.
Because it promised public access, Hargrave left all his research to the Munich Museum. Had Hargrave gained local support to further develop his ideas and not been so generous in sharing his ideas with other aviation pioneers, he probably would have been the first person in the world to achieve sustained and controlled powered flight.
J A Birchall decided that it would be a good idea to cut the sheets into half, back them with cardboard and glue them together at the top. The process revolutionised pipe manufacture in and has since been used around the world.Section 2: The use of cell phones while driving.
