    The transmission of electric power at extremely high frequencies through rods or “wires” of dielectric and through metal tubes, without the usual return conductor, was predicted mathematically many years ago. Recently experiments have confirmed this theory. Wave guides offer the possibility of transmitting very wide frequency bands and consequently extremely large numbers of speech c...

  • Trends in steel-mill electrification

    Publication Year: 1938, Page(s):96 - 99
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (6244 KB)

    Increasing demand for sheet steel in the automotive, canning, and welding industries has caused the development during the last decade of mills for the continuous rolling of steel sheets as wide as 96 inches. Electrical power and control are used exclusively, and now influence the design of the mechanical equipment. View full abstract»

    A relatively new offshoot of electrical-engineering science, electronic engineering is being projected rapidly into a multitude of uses in communication, research, industrial control; large-scale electric power transmission, using electron tubes as rectifiers and inverters, now seems to be feasible. A few of the many applications are described in this article to show the remarkable versatility of ... View full abstract»

  • What is tensor analysis? Part III — Applications

    Publication Year: 1938, Page(s):108 - 109

    In two preceding parts of this article∗ the tensor was hunted to its lair and tortured until it revealed its innermost secrets. Here the author shows how some of those secrets have helped to solve difficult problems in theoretical physics and engineering. Tensor analysis is not propounded as the best method of attack for all speculative problems, but is shown to offer perhaps the... View full abstract»

    MOST ENGINEERS as well as educational and research institutions are continually faced with the problem of locating reliable, adequate, and up-to-date sources of information. Obviously, standard textbooks and important periodicals are the basic sources. However, because textbooks present in permanent form generally accepted theories or facts which probably first appeared in periodical publications ... View full abstract»

    Marking an innovation in winter-convention programs, the “general” session held the morning of January 26 aroused wide interest, as was evidenced by the 450 members and guests who attended. The principal feature of the session was an address “Technological Development in Relation to Economics,” delivered by H. G. Moulton, president of the Brookings Institution, Washingt...

    Five papers were presented at the session on lightning protection, over which K. B. McEachron, vice-chairman of the protective devices committee, presided. Two of the papers discussed the Petersen coil, which is a device used to tune a transmission system in order to aid extinction of arc following lashover. Although many installations have been made in Europe, only a few have been made in the Uni... View full abstract»
