    Much of the controversy over programmed learning has its genesis in a misunderstanding of the behavioral principles at its base and an identification of the external features of early programs with the full range of possibilities. This paper briefly describes the principles of programmed instruction and discusses recent evaluations of some earlier studies of programming variables. This discussion ... View full abstract»

    In our increasingly complex industrial endeavors, there are "corporate structures" of management dedicated to the efficient operation of the business. It is becoming increasingly important that these managers be aware of the fundamentals involved, the secondary side effects, the changes resulting from computer applications, and the requirement that their efforts must have a central engineering log...

    It is shown how ever-increasing enrollments, the explosion of knowledge, advances in technology, and social changes have affected undergraduate electrical engineering curricula to a point where they are seemingly unsatisfactory for a career in the power field. A program is outlined to provide undergraduate and graduate training to a limited number of engineers serving the public utilities. Concret... View full abstract»

    To stimulate wider use of flowgraphs as an aid in teaching undergraduate electronics, a self-contained tutorial account of flowgraph techniques is presented, which assumes no prior specialized knowledge. This elementary, but systematic and detailed review of flowgraphs is grouped around three major techniques: 1) problem formulation and model definition suitable for coding of input data compatible...

  • State Variable Approach to a Second-Order System

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):80 - 90
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1466 KB)

    The main reason for presenting this paper is to stress for educators the interpretive information that can be gained concerning the response of a second-order system when the solution is cast in a state variable form, with results plotted as state plane trajectories. Although the treatment is more exhaustive than usual for a beginning undergraduate, a wealth of engineering insight becomes availabl... View full abstract»

  • Elementary Relations between G(s) and G(z)

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):91 - 94
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (605 KB)

    This paper presents an elementary consideration of the relationship between G(s) on the s-plane, and G(z) on the z-plane, where G(z)=ΖL-1 G(s). Two simple circuits are used as examples, and the magnitudes and phases on the two planes are compared. A simple cardboard-template method of calculation is employed. View full abstract»

  • A Graphical Polar-Rectangular Smith Chart Conversion

    Graphical immittance transformations on the Smith chart often appear to require some constructions which lie off the chart sheet. Two graphical methods for angle determination are presented which, in conjunction with a previous method for magnitude determination, keep all constructions on the Smith chart sheet. A feature of the angle determination methods is the pre-emption of the reflection coeff... View full abstract»

  • Generalized Input and Output Equivalent Circuits for Networks with Active Three-Terminal Devices

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):100 - 102
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (413 KB)

    Any active three-terminal device can be characterized for low-frequency work by means of input and output static characteristic curves. From these curves, the piecewise linear equivalent circuit of the device is then obtained. The active device can be excited by sources connected between each of the three terminals and a reference terminal. Alternately, these sources can be considered to be extern... View full abstract»

  • Transforms, Generalized Functions, and All That

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):103 - 105

    Generalized functions, e.g., Dirac delta functions and derivatives of the same, are currently in vogue. In this paper there is developed a practical approach to generalized functions and the many uses thereof in Fourier and Laplace transform theory. A novel concept, the " line of convergence" concept, is central to the approach. By use of it, generalized steady-state analysis (e. g., sinusoidal an... View full abstract»

  • A Note on Linear Least Squares Filtering

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):106 - 109

    This paper is concerned with a rigorous, yet intuitively appealing, justification of the optimum mean-square-error linear filter design procedure under the constraint of physical realizability. By use of the formulation and solution of an equivalent finite dimensional geometric problem, the following two (intuitively) difficult questions are answered. 1) Why can't the physically realizable optimum...

  • An Electromagnetic Teaching Aid

    This paper describes a magnetic flux density measuring device (BMD) which is a helpful teaching aid in the study of the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism. The relatively low cost of construction and the simplicity of design should appeal to the university professor who wishes to ilustrate the principles of electromagnetic interaction with a demonstration, but is limited budgetwise and time...

    An experiment and apparatus to perform this experiment is described which has proved successful in illustrating the significant features of various forms of automatic control systems. The experiment described is intended for use in nonmajor electrical engineering courses and has been devised to require a minimum of skill on the part of the students performing the experiment. This experiment can an... View full abstract»

    "Waveforms and Ac Meters" is a laboratory experiment for use in the instrumentation portion of the junior electronics laboratory at the University of Arkansas. The experiment illustrates that voltmeter readings for nonsinusoidal periodic waveforms must be interpreted in terms of meter type and wave shape. The material contained therein is neither new nor profound, but insofar as the author has bee... View full abstract»
