    THE INSTITUTE'S 60th birthday was the 13th of May 1944. The first 50 years of our history have been presented in the golden-anniversary number of Electrical Engineering;1 in it most of the then living past presidents individually covered some specific part of the many activities of the Institute in a comprehensive way. I will not attempt to duplicate that information. View full abstract»

    MANY contradictory pictures of air transportation in the future have been painted which vary from rosy optimism to the darker shades of pessimism. Just what may be expected realistically during the first ten years of peace? View full abstract»

    MEDALS are awards for valor. Just as many of our young men who are fighting the enemy are decorated for brave deeds, so do we today honor a man for his courage-not for physical intrepidity but for mental daring. View full abstract»

    IN sorting and clarifying my impressions of Arthur Kehoe, I labor under a certain difficulty — I have been so close to him for over 30 years that I now have to change my focus in order to bring to you a proper picture of the engineer and the man. View full abstract»

    IT is doubtful if a reasonably complete story of the contributions which a select group of men made at considerable risk during the development of successful multiple-feed a-c network distribution has ever been compiled. I feel I owe it to them to start one, since their work, which has had scant recognition, caused mine to be noted. View full abstract»

  • Calculating antenna radiation patterns

    Publication Year: 1944, Page(s):331 - 334
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1901 KB)

    CALCULATIONS of the horizontal relative field patterns of antennas are long and laborious and increase in complexity with the number of antenna elements employed. Present calculating machines are useful only for antenna-beam arrays consisting of not over three elements. The system described herein will handle any number of antenna elements and can be used to solve problems in a fraction of the tim... View full abstract»

    Electronically controlled resistance welders now seam-weld these detachable gasoline tanks for the Lightning P-38 fighters in four minutes at the rate of 60 inches per minute. Since no additional metal is deposited in this process, welding rod ordinarily consumed m rod welding is saved. The process also permit, the substitution of steel for the aluminum formerly uaed. Two of the streamlined tanks ... View full abstract»

    TRANSFORMERS have thermal capacity; furthermore, they frequently show lower temperature rises during test than the guaranteed rise. Load factors are usually under 100 per cent and rarely are ambient temperatures continuously 40 degrees centigrade. For these reasons it usually is possible to get out of them more than is indicated by their name-plate ratings. View full abstract»

    This versatile calculating machine recendy was presented by International Business Machines Corporation to Harvard University to be used by the United States Navy for the duration. Employing a unique automatic sequence control which receives problems on a coded tape, the machine will solve practically any known problem to 23 significant figures, including problems involving computation and tabulat...

    THE plans of the electrical industry, and of the utility industry in particular, for the postwar period are not a new subject. In the utility business where it takes nearly three years to build a new power plant, planning for the future is a routine part of the job. Postwar planning is the same job except that some of the plans must have an X date instead of a definite date for beginning construct... View full abstract»
