    A laser radar ranging system intended for a variety of experience in an advanzed electrical engineering undergraduate projects laboratory is described. Pseudo-random coding is applied to the laser beam via a KDP crystal modulator, by means of digitalmodule circuitry and silicon-controlled rectifier circuitry. The equipment lends itself to a number of studies in pulse and digital circuitry, statist... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3635 KB)

    A semiconductor device laboratory course is described which has been developed as a senior technical elective. The objectives of the course are to strengthen the experimental understanding of abstract solid-state parameters, to weight the overall curriculum somewhat less heavily in abstractions, and to provide background for more advanced experimental work either in graduate school or in industry.

  • A Compact Derivation of Formulas for Propagation over a Plane Earth in a Homogeneous Atmosphere

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):14 - 21
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1263 KB)

    The method of Fourier transforms is used to separate variables in the two-dimensional wave equation. The resultant ordinary differential equation in the transformed height function is solved, subject to boundary conditions at the surface of the earth, the source, and very great height. Use of the inverse transform then leads to the complete solution, in the form of an integral, as a function of he... View full abstract»

    The inclusion of a course in Symbolic Logic in the senior year curriculum of Electrical Engineers is defended with reasoning drawn from two of its aspects: 1) The historical: A summary of the development of S.L. from Leibniz to Lewis and Lukasiewicz is presented. The degree of attention given to it by prominent men of thought is proved to be a fact that cannot be denied or ignored by any serious, ... View full abstract»

  • A Generalized Ritz Method and Its Application to Certain Nonlinear System Problems

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):26 - 28

    Using the Ritz method (or Principle of Harmonic Balance), equations relating amplitude and phase to system parameters and driving function parameters are developed for an equation of the form x + 2wcoog(i) + w4f(x) = A cos wt, where g and f are monotonically increasing. The object of the development is to show the analogy to the linear case, and hence to extend the students' intuition for linear s... View full abstract»

    In this paper, the convolution theorem is used as a fundamental tool to solve problems associated with frequency translation, amplitude modulation, sampling, and transformation of random variables. The four basic steps involved in the convolution of two functions are explained in detail using graphic techniques. It is concluded that the approach used makes possible the covering of a class of impor... View full abstract»

  • The Case of Missing Solutions of an Ordinary Differential Equation

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):33 - 34
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (456 KB)

    This short paper offers a new technique to extract independent solutions from a certain type of ordinary differential equation which would frequently refuse to declare all the solutions under conventional infinite series treatment. This new mathematical tool, most suited for differential equations with elusive solutions, is not found in the mathematics courses taken by a first-year graduate studen... View full abstract»

  • On Short Antennas Immersed in Two Dielectrics

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):34 - 36
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (683 KB)

    With the assumption that the customary current distribution and far-field distance approximations apply, this paper develops the far-field expressions for short linear antennas (2h=l<λ/10), each half immersed perpendicularly h meters in a dielectric. As an illustration of topics such as linear antennas, reflection and refraction at a dielectric interface, phasor addition of waves from seve... View full abstract»

  • Phase-Plane Approximations in the Analysis of an Undamped Nonlinear Circuit

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):36 - 37
    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (425 KB)

    Approximate solutions to ϕ+f(ϕ)=0 are developed by truncating f(ϕ) to a cubic and solving for the unknown coefficients by matching in the phase-plane. The object of the development is to show that the phase-plane represents a useful set of parameters with which one can develop flexible approximate solutions. View full abstract»

  • The Determination of Time Intervals on Phase-Plane Trajectories

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):37 - 38

    An analytical method is given for determining the time intervals between points on the phase-plane trajectory of linear second-order systems. The procedure uses the concept of elapsedtime loci and is particularly useful where nonlinear systems can be reduced to piecewise-linear form or where the forcing function is linearly time dependent.

    A method is presented for solving nth-order nonhomogeneous differential equations with constant coefficients. In this method, an operator is employed which transforms the original equation into a homogeneous Nth-order (N≥n) differential equation with constant coefficients; this can then be solved using one of several elementary procedures.
