    According to the results of a preliminary survey, about half of the engineers in the aerospace and avionics industry read a professional society journal, about half read at least one of the review journals, about two-thirds read the more serious technical magazines, and about one-quarter read technical contract reports issued by firms or agencies other than their own. The 1765 returns obtained fro... View full abstract»

  • An Experiment with Support Programming of a Textbook

    A textbook in solid state electron physics for undergraduates in, electrical engineering has been programmed by a method of "support programming." Instead of re-editing the entire book, as is usually done in programming, the textbook has been left intact and the program has been assembled in a separate booklet. This booklet is planned for use in conjunction with the textbook, each page in the book... View full abstract»

  • The Changing Role of the Laboratory in the Electrical Engineering Curriculum

    Over the past years, the electrical engineering laboratory has developed from an apprenticeship into a stereotyped demonstration program. In general, this program has been held in low esteem by both faculty and students. An attempt is made here to present the beginnings of a program which will lead to a solution of the laboratory dilemma. A brief historical review of the development of the laborat...

  • Students as Teachers of Laboratory Exercises

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):193 - 194
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (369 KB)

    An experiment has been performed in which some of the students in a laboratory course were used as teachers of the course for their fellow students. The results have been evaluated in terms of student response and results of course examinations and special tests. The results show a positive influence on the understanding of the laboratory course material. A positive influence on the engagement in ... View full abstract»

    As an integral part of the required course "Introduction to Engineering," every freshman engineer at Arizona State University is involved in a realistic design project. The object is to give the student a clear idea of the role of the engineer, the challenges he faces, and the skills he must acquire. In this project, each student works as a member of an "engineering firm" which develops a new desi... View full abstract»

    This paper describes the two-course sequence in digital systems at the Pennsylvania State University Electrical Engineering Department, available to advanced undergraduate and first year graduate students. The philosophy of the courses and their laboratories is discussed with the special features of this approach indicated by course outlines and comments on each individual course. The importance o...

  • Classroom Reduction of Boolean Functions

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):202 - 205
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (716 KB)

    Two classroom methods which can be used consecutively to demonstrate the minimization of Boolean functions are presented. The first is a simplification of Caldwell's decimal tabulation for obtaining prime implicants, and the second is a topologically oriented procedure for reducing the set of prime implicants to minimum Boolean functions.

  • Several Methods for the Evaluation of Transient Response

    This paper presents four techniques convenient for use in the evaluation of the transient response of networks. Each of these formulated methods may be programmed easily to produce the transient response of a network with the occurance of each sampled value of the input. Two of these methods are obtained through approximations of the convolution integral, and the other two are obtained through the... View full abstract»

  • Generalization of Heaviside's Expansion Technique to Transition Matrix Evaluation

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):209 - 212
    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (567 KB)

    The well-known technique of the Heaviside partial fraction expansion is generalized and extended to the state transition matrix determination. The new approach is more convenient than the direct inversion of a square matrix, on one hand, and is much simpler than Sylvester's expansion method, on the other. Two examples (one is a system with distinct roots and one with multiple roots) are included f... View full abstract»

  • A Fourier Series Experiment

    An experiment is described illustrating the fact that an approximand to a periodic function in the form of a truncated Fourier Series minimizes the mean-squared error. The experiment is implemented on an analog computer wherein the first three components of a periodic wave are generated and their amplitudes (and phases to a certain extent) are adjusted to minimize the squared-error integrated over...

  • An Introduction to a Class of Optimal Control Problems

    Publication Year: 1966, Page(s):215 - 219

    In this paper, an attempt is made to define and solve a class of optimal control problems. In the treatment of the problem, the notion of state and the concept of the principle of optimality are employed. The approach taken here makes the solution of the problem easy to follow by most of the undergraduate students in an electrical engineering curriculum. This is in contrast to almost all the mater...
