    A discussion of conclusions to be drawn from engineering layoffs concerning engineering obsolescence is followed by a discussion of industrial management's attitude toward the use of continuing formal education of their engineering employees on a part-time basis. It is suggested that industry finds little intrinsic value in such programs as evidenced by their policies in administering them. It is ... View full abstract»

    The Preliminary Report of the "Goals" Committee of the American Society for Engineering Education, and the resulting impact its recommendations have had in drawing out its proponents and opponents, clearly indicate that engineering education is approaching a crossroad. This paper suggests that the essential issue to be decided is the role that an engineering education should, or perhaps could, pla... View full abstract»

  • An Experimental Approach to the Teaching of the Theory of Measurement Errors

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):142 - 148

    The mathematics of error analysis, though reviewed in measurements books and laboratory manuals, is rarely experimentally applied at an elementary level. An approach based on experiments that investigate and specifically illustrate measurement errors on a basic level is described. The purpose in introducing these experiments on an elementary level is to develop in the student both an ability to un... View full abstract»

    The electro-magneto-plasma-gas-dynamics (EMPGD) equations are summarized, based on the single-fluid, continuum-theory, macroscopic plasma-dynamics theory. The derivation of the three-dimensional wave equations for linearized, isotropic, compressible, warm plasma is reviewed. In accordance with a well-used approach in the theory of elasticity, the wave equations are separated into the acoustic ((lo... View full abstract»

    The interval function which assigns f(b)-f(a) to the interval [a,b] is called the subtracate of f, and is denoted by f The substracate A of the indicial admittance A of a linear time-invariant system provides a natural time-domain transfer function for the system which preserves information about discontinuities in A. These subtracates are used as operators on point functions, and a validation is ... View full abstract»

    Methods are developed for the construction of constant gain loci on positive and negative Smith charts using only the minimum aid provided by existing Smith chart scales, a compass, and a plain straight edge. Analytical verification of the constructions is included. View full abstract»

  • Polynomial Root Determination by an Equivalent Transfer Function Simulation on an Iterative Analog Computer

    The methods for determining the roots of polynomials by analog computer techniques are varied, but stability analysis is usually of chief concern. The computer approach used in this paper always produces stable operation, and introduces an equivalent transfer function representation of the polynomial, a linear transformation, and a generalized iterative analog computer program. The accuracy obtain... View full abstract»
