    PROGRESS in nuclear research was reviewed in Electrical Engineering for March. In cognizance of the fact that atomic energy may be potentially as valuable an instrument of peace as it was of war, the following supplemental articles are presented, reflecting the views of recognized authorities concerning the role of atomic power in the postwar world, with particular emphasis on possible application...

    BLUNTLY STATED, this article attempts to reach economic conclusions regarding atomic power without possessing the essential data. The Smyth report left much unsaid. Since Smyth, no significant new facts have been made public. The vast atomic-energy literature of this “post-Smyth” period is either a restatement of Smyth, a presentation of what was public knowledge before Smyth, an int... View full abstract»

    IT IS ONLY SINCE THE TURN of the century that the general subject of nuclear physics has been advanced to its present state. Prior to World War II much research and investigation had been carried on in this field with the result that some of the potentialities locked within the atom were becoming apparent to a few individuals. Books had been written which contained enough information to make peopl... View full abstract»

    ELECTRIC UTILITY SYSTEMS on the North American continent derive their power supply predominantly from generating stations of either the steam-electric or hydroelectric type. It happens that in some utilities the one type predominates, while in others it may be almost or even completely absent. Consequently, the system engineer and power plant designer may acquire a full familiarity with the proble... View full abstract»

    Gas turbines as power plants for airplanes now are providing competition for the highly developed reciprocating engine. They may utilize only the thrust of the exhaust gases as a jet engine, drive a conventional propeller, or combine the two actions. Comparison of the three reveals their relative advantages and fields of application. View full abstract»

    THE development of thin permalloy tape and its use in cores have resulted from the increasing need for efficient magnetic structures at high frequencies. For some time for example, the trend in the telephone plant has been to the use of higher frequencies in the longer distance toll circuits. The reason is that these permit the simultaneous transmission of a larger number of telephone conversation... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with the theory and design of magnetic inertia throat microphones. Especial attention is given to the treatment of sound power and high articulation throat microphones. The sound power microphones described contain a double frequency, undamped vibrating system, while the high articulation microphones have damping introduced, which reduces the low frequency peak with resultant incr...

    IN 1926, Messrs. Doherty and Nickle presented their classic paper on “Synchronous Machines” giving a complete and thorough analysis. Since many fractional horsepower engineers have occasion to design small reluctance motors (synchronous motors without field excitation) and these engineers in general have no need of becoming thoroughly familiar with the great and extensive field of sy...
