    Continuing education is treated in its broadest aspects, including both degree- and nondegree-oriented programs. The need for imaginative new mechanisms to accomplish a vast expansion of the scope of present efforts is now well recognized in the engineering community. The authors contend that while there is no universal solution to the general problem, the medium of television can be used in a var... View full abstract»

    Electrooptical engineering has become of great importance in defense and industrial communities. Great strides have been made in the sciences of optics to the extent that much of the lore and knowledge is available for engineering purposes. In the same way instrumentation and industrial engineering has developed a curriculum that has become an integral part of the entire field, electrooptical engi... View full abstract»

  • A Map Method for the Teaching of the Fundamental Concepts of Compound-Input Logic Circuits

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):173 - 177
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1043 KB)

    One class of logic circuits has inputs that are functions of fundamental variables. Other inputs may include aspects of the fundamental variables themselves. A method for improving the understanding of these circuits, based on the Karnaugh map method, is presented here. In addition to providing a teaching tool, it has advantages when used as a design technique. It will show readily when there are ... View full abstract»

    A laboratory facility is described that provides for the experimental study of digital control systems. The activities of the laboratory are designed to permit experiments in data conversion, data acquisition, hybrid system simulation, computer control of typical physical processes, and binary and decimal data transfer between a digital computer and peripheral equipment. The main facility of the l... View full abstract»

  • Classification of the Operating Modes of Hot-Cathode Parallel-Plane Plasma Diodes

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):182 - 194
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4601 KB)

    Many specialized theoretical and experimental studies have been carried out on noble-gas plasma diodes in order to determine the operating characteristics of a particular mode. Even though the modes of cesium plasma diodes have been characterized rather completely by Bullis, no comparable summary has been developed for noble-gas systems. In this paper, the operation of hotcathode parallel-plane pl... View full abstract»

  • An Approximate Method for Solving the Wave Equation in an Inhomogeneous Medium

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):195 - 204
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1035 KB)

    A technique is described for obtaining approximate solutions to the wave equation when a dielectric variation exists in the direction of propagation. The method consists of approximating the true dielectric variation with several adjacent slabs having exponentially varying characteristics. Solutions in each region include Bessel function of purely imaginary order. A variety of these previously unt... View full abstract»

  • Negative Resistance Circuits

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):204 - 205
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (422 KB)

    Switching circuits such as multivibrators and relaxation oscillators require a negative resistance for their operation. The (almost) instantaneous switching performed by these circuits is not convincingly explained in the standard texts. An analysis is presented, which is based on conventional pole-zero techniques.

  • Further Properties of Symmetrical Networks

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):205 - 206

    Properties of symmetrical networks are usually obtained through symmetrical and antisymmetrical excitations. A different approach that reveals new properties for symmetrical networks, under any form of excitation, is presented. This approach illustrates one of the advantages of using superposition with variables and sources. View full abstract»

  • Measurement of Transformer-Winding Leakage Reactance

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):206 - 208

    A simple integrating circuit is employed to determine the leakage reactance of a transformer winding. An advantage of the method is that the wave shape of the winding current is unimportant and for teaching purposes the method readily shows that leakage flux is proportional to winding current and is independent of core flux.

    The need to modernize and upgrade engineering curricula by introducing courses in direct energy conversion (DEC) at both graduate and undergraduate level is emphasized. It is suggested that an introductory coutse in DEC be initiated at the senior level. The inherently interdisciplinary nature and the scope of DEC are outlined. Partial lists of research and seminar projects, and companies manufactu... View full abstract»

  • Computer-Assisted Grading of Identities by Numerical Testing

    Publication Year: 1968, Page(s):211 - 213

    The grading of student problems where there can be a wide range in the form of correct answers is difficut, because of the algebraic manipulation required to verify correctness. Numerical testing can quickly separate those answers that are correct from those in error, greatly increasing the efficiency of the grader. View full abstract»
