    Since its publication by the Educational Testing Service in 1962, the MBTI (Myers-Briggs-Type Indicator) has seen application in a variety of settings. Its usefulness to the classroom teacher, however, is unclear at this time. This investigation addressed the relationship of two dimensions of that instrument, Sensing-Intuiting (S-N) and Judging-Perceiving (J-P), to performance on tests containing ... View full abstract»

    Transient traveling waves in transmission lines can be analyzed by means of bounce diagrams. However, the procedures in deriving the transient responses are often mechanical and provide little physical insight to the solutions of wave equations. In this paper, the incident and reflected waves are described in terms of voltages and currents observed by moving observers. Using the results derived, w... View full abstract»

    By employing simple heuristic arguments based on the ray model of light it is possible to gain significant physical insight into light propagation mechanisms of optical fibers. Specifically, the optical fiber can be treated as an idealized waveguide in order to obtain qualitatively correct dependence of the mode density and power transmission characteristics on the V parameter of the optical fiber...

    With research now fully supporting the ability of video to disseminate off-campus graduate engineering education, it is useful to review other factors impacting on program quality. One key issue is the quality of off-campus students, particularly in comparison to their on-campus peers. The following compares on-and off-campus engineering graduate students for traditionally accepted quantitative ch... View full abstract»

  • Derivation of Induction Motor Equivalent Circuit Using Space-Phasor Concepts

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):90 - 97
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1589 KB)

    The elements of space-phasor theory are discussed with application to the induction machine. The familiar derivation of resultant MMF for a three-phase winding is extended to give a definition of the current space-phasor. The ideas of space-phasor theory are used to derive the steady-state equivalent circuit for the induction machine. The properties of the space-phasor are used with alternate refe...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (710 KB)

    A simple method of numerically evaluating network functions by computer is presented. The method is based on, and reinforces, fundamental concepts encountered in introductory network theory courses and is readily grasped by students. Basic language code is given for three subroutines which numerically perform Thevenin, series to parallel and parallel to series transformations. View full abstract»

    This paper considers the use of a microprocessor as a controller for digital systems. It is suggested that the microprocessor controller can be considered as a state machine with each state being defined in terms of possible machine instructions. The strengths and weaknesses of this device are discussed. A design procedure is proposed that allows comparison of a conventional state machine design t... View full abstract»

  • The Mechanics of Implementing a Consistent Instructional Feedback Model in the Development of a Computer-Based Engineering Course

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):106 - 109

    A computer-based education course to teach an undergraduate engineering course in statics has been developed at Texas A&M University. In the initial design phase, the authors used a very simply constructed feedback model. However, once development was underway, this model proved inadequate for dealing with a variety of feedback problems. These problems included the need to have certain excepti... View full abstract»

    A high-level robot command language has been developed as an extension to the C programming language and the UNIXTM operating system. It provides a common interface for programming three robot arms made by two different manufacturers and sharing a common work space. This command language allows task description in Cartesian coordinates and it makes concurrency of the movements of the ar... View full abstract»

    This study involved results and analysis from a simulation queueing model applicable to the higher education system in Egypt [11] and hopefully, elsewhere. Costs involved in enlarging the higher education system are also considered. A computer program was developed to perform the necessary calculations both for the simulation device and for the solution of the simulation of the mathematical model. View full abstract»
