    A method is described for creating a secure hierarchical group environment in Unix(R) where faculty have free access to student files but in which students have no access either to faculty files or other students' files. The environment is employed to implement a semiautomatic testing system for student software. Testing is used both for grading and for hands-on help for students. The tests genera...

    The study of queueing systems presents mathematical barriers to the novice, although the phenomena of queues can be readily observed in everyday life. In addition, English-speaking faculty have language barriers to surmount with Japanese students. This paper describes a graphical user interface to allow quick and easy comprehension of the dynamical behavior of queues. The interface is implemented ... View full abstract»

    The traditional methods for the characterization of ray trajectories in nonhomogeneous media are based on the Eikonal equation valid in the region of geometrical optics. To apply Eikonal theory to fiber optics requires a fairly extensive use of vector calculus and geometry. Alternatively, through a simple correspondence rule, and a few intuitive guidelines for relating rays to waves, an equivalent... View full abstract»

  • A quantitative comparison of three Bode straight-line phase approximations for second-order, underdamped systems

    Publication Year: 1997, Page(s):135 - 138

    Bode straight-line approximations are an extremely useful tool in the study of system frequency response. These approximations give good insight into the frequency variation of the amplitude and the phase of a system response without the use of computer simulation or complex calculations. Three Bode straight-line approximations to the phase of second-order, underdamped systems are subjected to qua... View full abstract»

    The design and fabrication of an integrating sphere to provide a uniform illumination source was the basis for a student laboratory project. The design process emphasizes several important concepts in radiometry. An integrating sphere is a useful component for other student laboratory experiments, and the design presented is cost-effective when compared with commercially available products View full abstract»

    Magnetic levitation of a metallic sphere provides a high-impact visual demonstration of many principles in undergraduate educational programs in electrical engineering, e.g., electromagnetic design, compensation of a unstable control system and power amplifier design. This paper deals with the electromagnetic and dynamic analysis of the levitation system and it has design formulae which are derive... View full abstract»
