    In this paper the use of a "spatial state" (a state having a spatial variable as its domain) is advocated to derive and solve state models of appropriate physical systems, using resources from elementary state variable theory. The power transmission line is chosen as a case study, and three different models are derived and solved. View full abstract»

    Network analogs are developed representing Maxwell's equations in the time domain for one and two spatial dimensions. Maxwell's equations are first cast into matrix form. Then the connection between these matrices and the branch node incidence matrix of the equivalent network is made. Next, the relationship between the field variables (electric and magnetic fields) and the across and through varia... View full abstract»

    The Software Hut (a small software house) is a software engineering project in the form of a game, designed and used by J. J. Horning and D. B. Wortman at the University of Toronto, Toronto, Ont., Canada. This paper describes some of the problems that occurred when the present authors used projects based on the Software Hut with groups of final-year undergraduate students in two successive years a...

    The consistent growth trend in the percentage of female students in schools of technology is apparent, but the actual number of females is still relatively small. To compound this problem, the attrition rate for this female minority is higher than that of males. Therefore, the challenge of the 1980's is to continue active recruitment of competent females and, once recruited, to retain them in acad... View full abstract»

    An angular position servosystem made of a dc servomotor controlled by a TM990 microcomputer is described. The objective is to offer a control laboratory demonstrator for the study of a number of questions concerning computer control theory and practice. The control strategy uses state feedback and can be chosen to be either of the Kalman regulator type or of the bang-bang relay type; the parameter... View full abstract»

  • Effect of High School Quality on Freshman Engineering Academic Prediction

    Publication Year: 1982, Page(s):29 - 33

    The role ofquality ofhigh school as an addition to high school grades and aptitude test scores in the prediction of freshman engineering performance is discussed. High school quality is measured by the average drop in grade point average from high school to the University of California for previous classes at that high school. The predictor is shown to yield small, but statistically significant, i... View full abstract»

    Eady in 1977, the first report by the Model Curriculum Subcommittee of the IEEE Computer Society was published [1]. This report, which presented in considerable detailarecommended curriculum in computer science and engineering, came at a fortunate time for a committee in the Department of Electical and Computer Engineering (E& CE) at aemson Univemity. Although the Department of E&CE had been so na... View full abstract»

    An alternative and relatively direct derivation of the Biot-Savart law is given which does not require the usual assumption of a steady current flow, nor does it require the more sophisticated relativistic approach. View full abstract»
