    The debate, promoted by the deliberations of the Committee of Inquiry into the Engineering Profession, has shown the need to have an academic strategy for the future. Many considerations should influence this strategy. The flow of information into schools should provide a much clearer picture of the opportunities that engineering provides. This is one task which should receive priority from any st... View full abstract»

    A restrained extrapolation is made on the basis of the further development of some of today's technology seen against a background of the finite radio spectrum and limited energy resources. Present-day communications have become established as a set of complementary services, radio, television, telephone, letters, newspapers, records, films etc, with separate terminal devices and each having their...

  • IEE Power Division: Chairman's address. Electric transport: the future prospects

    A review of the prospects for increasing the use of electricity for transport reveals that the means are readily at hand. Both private and nationalised organisations within the UK have invested heavily in research and development, and the UK now holds a world lead in a number of the key technologies required for expanding the use of electricity in transport. A comparison of power flows when refuel... View full abstract»

  • IEE Computing & Control Division: Chairman's address. The transfer of computing and control technology into manufacturing industry

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):27 - 37

    25 years ago, the subjects of control and digital computing were developing more or less independently. Today they are very closely interrelated, and the formation of the new Computing & Control Division is an expression of this and of the fact that information engineering now underlies the work of many electrical engineers. The rapid transfer of computing and control technology into industry ... View full abstract»

    Magic and technology appear at first sight to be very far removed from each other. Nevertheless, both in mythology and history, the threads of magic and technology sometimes run close together, and indeed occasionally seem to be woven into a single fabric. Both magic and technology are capable of effecting highly desirable transformations, but each is also capable of unleashing powerful forces som... View full abstract»

  • Numerical method for calculating magnetic-flux and eddy-current distributions in three dimensions

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):46 - 53
    Cited by:  Papers (6)

    A practical technique is presented for the numerical solution of general three-dimensional electrodynamic field problems. Circuit models are derived separately for the electric and magnetic parts of the field. Conventional network-analysis techniques are then developed to isolate the independent closed paths that link the models. This avoids the difficulty, inherent in the usual differential equat...

  • Calculation of rectifier-circuit performance

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):54 - 60

    Approximate formulas for the calculation of the output voltage, ripple voltage, and the r.m.s. and peak values of the source current of bridge, and one- and two-phase halfwave rectifier circuits are presented. These have been derived by replacing sines and cosines by the first two terms of their series expansions. It is shown that the approximations made introduce errors which, in the great majori...

  • Modelling and simulation in engineering marketing

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):61 - 68
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1058 KB)

    In automating the marketing process, the objective is to gain higher efficiency, with a consequent economic benefit, through improved control. Many elements of the marketing process lend themselves to this approach as an aid to decision making, but, in exploring this field, engineering has lagged behind other sectors of industrial activity. Basic research into the behaviour of markets, organisatio... View full abstract»
