    When ``digital computer'' was an institutional rather than a household word, the machine required some very special personnel to cajole anything from its limited facilities. The operators came to the computer and spoon-fed it. And the computer's limited ``brainpower'' permitted only one operator at a time to tinker. Today, computers can be programmed so that almost anyone can be trained to access ... View full abstract»

    The engineering profession must go beyond the purely technical realm if it is to assume a leadership role in the issues of our time. For the National Society of Professional Engineers, the challenges posed by the problems of social change, the economy, and the environment have provided the impetus for developing programs for the engineer who seeks ``involvement.''

    The history of linear induction motors extends as far back as the 19th century. Although these machines have been practically forgotten for the last 30 or 40 years, there appears to be a genuine revival of interest in them. The fascinating history of these ``unrolled'' motors and their theory of operation is the subject of Part I of this article. Part II will deal with the unique advantages that s...

  • Power from Labrador: the Churchill Falls development

    The Labrador Plateau of northeastern Canada, which is more than 460 meters above sea level, forms a shallow ``saucer''¿with a few chips missing in the rim. Thus some water escapes through these low points to other streams; but most of the drainage is through the Churchill River, whose most dramatic feature is the 75-meter-high Churchill Falls. Long reaches of rapids precede and follow the falls s... View full abstract»

    Each academic year more than 100 engineers from the Phoenix metropolitan area participate in the freshman engineering program at Arizona State University either as technical consultants or as jury members for the semester design competition. Although this program requires the use of consultants and judges, the benefits of the joint effort extend far beyond these important functions. The freshman e... View full abstract»
