    A variety of methods of effecting greater interaction between the campus and industry are examined. All have been practiced with marked success, and their further adoption is viewed as being desirable for the future of engineering education. Communication between the university and industry, with the establishment of a clear understanding of the role of each in any continuing relationship, is emph... View full abstract»

    An "ancient chestnut" of circuit theory is the energy loss in switched circuits made up of lossless storage elements. For example, a charged capacitor, short-circuited by an ideal conductor, loses all of its initial stored energy. This can be explained as a limiting case problem, which could not be physically carried out in any experiment, where the dissipated energy has the indeterminate form (0&... View full abstract»

    During the centuries, materials technology has grown successively from simple stone working through composite structures to the sophisticated materials systems of today. The rate of development has been vastly accelerated during the past few years, particularly in the electronics industry. As these changes have occurred, the conventional engineering of the previous decade has been displaced by a n... View full abstract»

  • Is Power Dead in the University?

    Cited by:  Papers (2)

    Many charges that the universities have been guilty of guiding students away from the electric power industry have been made. It is the authors' experience, however, that students who are primarily interested in nonpower areas can be challenged to work on power problems by simply recognizing the many interesting and challenging applications of diverse new topics in power problems. Several examples... View full abstract»

  • An Introduction to Dynamic Programming

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):212 - 219
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1483 KB)

    Optimal control theory is introduced at a level appropriate for the undergraduate student. The principle of optimality is derived and used to develop the computational algorithm of dynamic programming. Two numerical examples, a routing problem and an optimal control problem, are solved to illustrate the basic concepts and the computational procedure. Supplementary problems with partial solutions a... View full abstract»

  • Computer versus Slide Rule

    Cited by:  Papers (1)

    A report is presented on progress and problems encountered in introducing a computer program as an aid in undergraduate teaching rather than as a topic of study per se. A computer-trained engineer differs in outlook from his predecessor reared on the slide rule. These conflicting orientations pose new problems and occasionally supply new fuel to old controversies. Reactions of the administration, ... View full abstract»

  • A Linear Operator in the Model Space

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):222 - 224
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (860 KB)

    A concept is presented in terms of a linear operator which is concerned with the model space. The linear operator is presented initially as a "nonsense operator," which is later applied to the area of abstract algebra to show its significance. The concept is viewed in a light vein in order to abstract the reader from traditional concepts. View full abstract»

  • Frequency Spectra and Frequency Response in the Complex Plane

    By plotting and with the aid of the digital computer, the imaginary versus real components of Fourier frequency spectra and frequency response on the complex plane, a far greater insight into system behavior is obtained than is otherwise possible. The effects of varying the position, length, and height of a single rectangular pulse on its Fourier frequency spectrum are demonstrated clearly. The fr... View full abstract»

  • Impedance Measurement by a Resistive Bridge

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):231 - 233
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (898 KB)

    The possibility of measuring an unknown impedance Z=R+jX by including it in one arm of a Wheatstone bridge, whose other arms are purely resistive, is examined. It is shown that by adjusting the variable resistance for minimum bridge output and measuring this output, one can calculate the magnitude |Z|, the resistive part R, and the magnitude of the reactive part |X|...

  • An Approach to Error-Free Flow-Graph Equations

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):233 - 237
    Cited by:  Papers (2)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1085 KB)

    The attractiveness of the flow-graph analysis of systems lies to a great extent in the ability to manipulate the graph by inspection. Nevertheless, in large flow graphs the inspection technique is often a shaky one for writing transmission equations. If one insists on using the flow-graph approach, a systematic mathematical means is needed to assure that no loops, paths, or contiguous conditions a... View full abstract»

  • On the Use of the Potential Integral for Determining the Fields of Physical Radiating Structures

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):237 - 239
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (634 KB)

    It appears to be common practice in almost all introductory texts in electromagnetic theory to introduce radiation by means of "currents" in free space, rather than on a conducting structure. Then the assumption is made, often implicitly, that the results are applicable to currents on conductors. Two questions then arise: What justification is there for using a potential integral for inhomogeneous... View full abstract»

  • Ideal Single Sideband Modulation

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):239 - 241
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (705 KB)

    Single sideband (SSB) modulation is a consequence of double sideband (DSB) suppressed carrier modulation. An outline of the DSB Laplace transform formalism is presented and this is followed by a simple SSB theory. The ordinary SSB modulator and demodulator are not enough for the task and a modification is needed to achieve SSB at one input frequency. SSB operation at other frequencies is aided by ...

  • Locking and Noise in a Model of a Negative-Resistance Oscillator

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):242 - 245
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (936 KB)

    Measurements of the locking voltage and frequency range for a simple negative-resistance oscillator are shown to be in excellent agreement with a theory which assumes a van der Pol nonlinearity. When the noise generated in the nonlinear element is taken into account, the measurements of output noise produced by a noise driving current are also in agreement with theory. View full abstract»

  • The Similarities of Electrical Machines under Transient Conditions

    Publication Year: 1967, Page(s):245 - 248

    This paper draws attention to the considerable similarity that exists in electrical machines when operating in the transient mode. An analysis is made of a salient pole synchronous machine, which has a damper winding. Using these equations it is possible to deduce the equations of other types of machines. In this way the similarities are highlighted. View full abstract»

    The presence of a leakage magnetic field is necessary for the transfer of energy between the primary and the secondary. Relations are derived for the electromagnetic field and for the energy transfer in an infinitely long transformer of circular cross section. The necessary information to calculate the field and the energy flow for a shell type transformer of cylindrical symmetry, in which the pla... View full abstract»
