Video of Diatonic Button Box being Played
25 years ago, I thought so; but then I started visiting an Irish Pub. The customers ranged from barely legal to old, but we all had fun listening to small bands that played penny whistles, violins, banjos, concertinas, accordions & drums. The effect was a lively, toe tapping music. What could be better as you drink a brown brew or a glass of red?

The Haunting of Tram 015
by P. Djeli Clark
Integrity Engineering is an alternative design approach to Reliability Engineering. The Integrity approach strives to ensure a minimum failure free operating period based on deterministic analysis (e.g. crack growth, fatigue theory etc.) while the Reliability approach strives to estimate & minimize statistical failure rates of fielded components. These two approaches are quite different in terms of mathmatical modeling & failure data recording.
The Integrity Programs were originally defined by four U.S. Government procurement specifications which prescribed design approaches for structure, mechanical systems, electrical systems and jet engines. Information about Integrity (including training) is available here: more information on Integrity Engineering
