A burner-based system for producing exhaust that simulates the exhaust produced by a production type internal combustion engine. The system is computer controlled so that parameters such as the composition of the exhaust, its rate of flow, and its temperature can be specified. This permits various engine operating conditions to be simulated. An emissions control device can be installed to receive the exhaust, and to thereby undergo rigorous testing. Various tests for durability can be performed.

A method for simulating at least one drive cycle of a vehicle using a non-engine based test system, the method including providing a non-engine based test system including a combustor in fluid communication with a catalytic converter from the vehicle; supplying fuel and air to said combustor at an air to fuel ratio (AFR) and under conditions effective to produce a feedstream flowpath; substantially stoichiometrically combusting at least a portion of the fuel in the feedstream flowpath under conditions effective to simulate at least one drive cycle of the vehicle and to produce a simulated drive cycle exhaust product for the vehicle, the conditions being effective to prevent substantial damage to the combustor; and, collecting and analyzing the simulated drive cycle exhaust product.
Apparatus including a housing defining an interior, a cutting board movable between a first position within the interior and a second position projecting outwardly from the housing, and transport means for selectively moving the cutting board between the first and second positions.

The article presents history on several hardware and artwork objects for rowing. Topics include the printing press, a way of delivering entertaining materials to the general population, the engraved coin silver water pitcher trophy that rowing club Erie Boat Club won a five-mile race in 1837 and the various blades or hatches designed during the 18th century.
The article profiles women who helped pioneer the sport of rowing for women. These include Ernestine Bayer who founded the Philadelphia Girls Rowing Club in 1938 and known as the Mother of Women's Rowing," Gail Pierson Cromwell, who sculled at Cambridge Boat Club with a group of young men who were training for the 1972 Olympics, and Joan Lind Van Blom who was introduced to sculling on the men's sweep team at California State Long Beach.
The article discusses the tends of rowing sports in the U.S. Topics covered include the expansion of rowing competitions from the traditional sprint head of river races to more extreme contests and a description of some rowing events including the endurance race from Corvallis to Portland in Oregon, the Intercollegiate Rowing Association Regatta and the charitable race Row for Hop in New York.
