  • Films in Electrical Engineering Education

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):4 - 7
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (859 KB)

    Engineering educators have had to rely increasingly on theoretical models that represent broad abstract relationships or laws which preserve their validity despite technological change. Carefully produced films afford the opportunity to relate the abstract with the real world and to assist the instructor in presenting material to his students that he could, only with great difficulty, produce hims...

    This paper describes how an SDS-92 digital computer has been connected to a TR-48 analog computer by appropriate interface equipment to permit the high information rate capability of the analog computer and the precision of the digital computer to be combined into a practical hybrid system. The value of the hybrid computer as an educational tool is discussed. Some problems solved on the hybrid com... View full abstract»

    One of the difficulties often experienced by teachers of engineering subjects is poor or improper scientific background acquired by engineering students while still in high or elementary schools. The following discussion outlines some of the reasons for this state of affairs, and presents a description of an attempted solution in the form of an in-service training course in science for elementary ...

    The propagation of waves in uniform, unbounded plasmas is reviewed. Emphasis is placed on describing the various approaches and plasma models which may be used. The results and limitations of the different methods are discussed and compared. Dispersion curves for the different models are presented in the form of ω-k plots. View full abstract»

  • The Construction of Resonance Curves for Undamped Nonlinear Systems

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):25 - 28
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (532 KB)

    The resonance properties of driven second-order nonlinear systems show a marked departure from those of linear systems, i.e., the phenomenon of jump resonance. This article describes a straightforward graphical method for constructing the resonance characteristics for undamped, driven systems and should prove to be a useful technique for courses in nonlinear analysis.

    This tutorial paper presents an introduction to leastsquares curve fitting and its connection to optimum filtering, using methods familiar and appealing to communication and control system engineers and educators in these disciplines. A development of the remarkable computational contribution of Kalman and Bucy to the solution of the Wiener filtering problem is presented, using leastsquares techni... View full abstract»

  • A Lagrangian Formulation for Nonconservative Linear Systems Which Satisfies Hamilton's Principle

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):37 - 42
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1058 KB)

    A Lagrangian formulation for nonconservative linear systems is presented, and it is shown that this formulation satisfies Hamilton's principle. This treatment has two advantages over the standard treatment after Lord Rayleigh: 1) it applies to a wider class of problems (radiation damping is included), and 2) it includes a demonstration that the Lagrangian formulation satisfies Hamilton's principle...

  • On the Nature of Mesh Currents

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s): 43
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (196 KB)

    This short paper provides a physical interpretation of the mesh current by demonstrating that it is nothing more than the total current circulating around the associated mesh or "hole" in the network. This point of view implies the possibility of direct measurement of mesh currents by "clamp-on" ammeters. Thus, the student is provided with the conceptual advantage he has long held in the dual situ... View full abstract»

  • The Network Diagram for a Mechanical System

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):44 - 45
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (528 KB)

    The reason for this paper is that most of the modern undergraduate textbooks on linear system analysis present the mechanical network with no proof or justification that it will lead to the correct answers. In most textbooks a procedure for writing down the system network is given and then the method for writing down the system equations is shown. Any connection with previous metholds of solving m...

  • Choosing the Limits on the Convolution Integral

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):45 - 47
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (439 KB)

    This short paper offers a convenient method for determining the smallest interval of integration on the convolution integral. Two functions to be convolved are described, analytically, with the aid of step functions. These functions are then substituted into the general form of the convolution integral, and the integrand containing the step functions is interpreted to find the limits. The paper co...

  • Phasor Transformation

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):48 - 49
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (378 KB)

    The concept of transformation is inherent to phasors. This paper puts this concept on a firm basis by defining a phasor transform-pair. The development is parallel to that of Laplace and Fourier transformations, and thus stresses the basic similarity of these transformations in solving linear differential equations with constant coefficients.

  • Impedance Magnitude Measurement from a Resistive Bridge

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):50 - 51
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (388 KB)

    It is shown that the familiar resistive bridge can be used to measure the magnitude of an unknown impedance. In order for this conclusion to hold, the bridge must have equal ratio arms. The measured voltage is then a minimum when the variable resistance in the bridge is equal to the magnitude of the unknown resistance. The sensitivity, however, decreases as the reactive component of the unknown im... View full abstract»

  • Time Domain Calculation of System Performance Criteria

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):51 - 52
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (427 KB)

    In the design of dynamical systems, described by the linear differential equation !_ 0 ai(dix/ dti)=0, integrals of the form Ik= Jo°° tKx2dt, k=0, 1, 2, . . . are often used as criteria of performance. Itis then desirable to be able to calculate these integrals without having to solve explicitly the differential equation of the system. Anke [4] showed that this can be done for integrals of the f...

    Science will not set the goals for mankind. It cannot tell us where we should go. We must decide that for ourselves. The relation between a wandering humanity and science is like that between Alice and the Cheshire Cat. "Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?" "That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat. "I don't much care where...," said Alice. "The... View full abstract»

  • Derivation of the Smith Chart through the Inverse of a Straight Line

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):53 - 54
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (347 KB)

    The usual procedure for deriving the Smith Chart through a conformal transformation frequently presents some difficulty when introduced in an undergraduate level course. This problem may be circumvented by developing the Smith Chart through examination of the properties of the inverse of a straight line. These properties are readily manifested when the polar form of the straight line is considered... View full abstract»
