    The AIEE board of directors has endorsed President Hull's proposal for a constitutional convention of engineering societies toward the objective of establishing an appropriate joint national engineering organization “to deal with the social, economic, and professional problems common to all engineers,” and has taken action providing for the AIEE to participate in such a convention.

    General information is given about a new scheme for indicating change from a balanced condition which can be used with any type of bridge circuit. The method is one which checks its own integrity and lends itself to applications demanding rugged apparatus, long life, and a minimum of maintenance. View full abstract»

    The importance of electric power has been proved dramatically by two world wars, and it will play no less a vital part in any future conflict. On the basis of the record, the author strongly emphasizes the necessity for co-operation between the Department of National Defense and the electric power industry to ensure the maintenance of adequate reserves for the production of electric power in antic...

  • Detection and measurement of nuclear radiation

    Publication Year: 1948, Page(s):325 - 332
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (4006 KB)

    Methods of measuring nuclear radiation have been described meticulously in technical literature as they were developed. This summation should provide a good basis for the understanding of current and future literature describing specific instruments, newer refinements of the measurement technique, and nucleonics research. This is the fourth in a series of articles developed by the AIEE nucleonics ... View full abstract»

    Modern science and technological “know-how” constitute a team, the extraordinary capacity of which was demonstrated in World War II. Will this team continue to be the servant of democracy, or may it become a Frankenstein capable of forcing the American people into political subservience? A well-known observer offers provocative criticism of the current scene and some of the current p... View full abstract»

  • Electrical essay: Which source feeds which load?

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (304 KB)

    Two similar batteries, X1 and X2, of the same voltage feed two equal loads, R1 and R2, by connecting wires as shown in Figure 1. The wires from A to B, and from B to C are interlaced tightly so that very little magnetic field outside their neighborhood is produced by the interlaced wires. These wires are at nearly the same potential, so that the electric... View full abstract»

  • The heat pump: The utility's perspective

    Publication Year: 1948, Page(s):338 - 340

    THE ELECTRICAL UTILITY INDUSTRY is interested intensely in the heat pump because it holds promise of permitting the industry to supply domestic heating service in an economical manner. Until now it has supplied very little of this market and without the heat pump is not likely ever to supply very much of it. View full abstract»

  • Its significance as a potential residential load

    THE fundamental thermodynamic principles of the heat pump have been known for almost a century. Its operation on the cooling cycle has had extensive practical application in refrigeration, and in air conditioning of homes and other buildings. But, because of many technical difficulties and relatively high first cost, its operation on the heating cycle has had only limited application. View full abstract»

    LED by electricals, engineers generally have acquired the habit of considering the heat pump exclusively in terms of electric motor drive. It can be shown that a heat pump driven by a gas, gasoline, or Diesel engine has superior possibilities in many respects, including both first cost and operating costs. During the present active consideration of such innovations as radiant heating, resistance h... View full abstract»

  • Economic effects of climatic and usage factors

    IN MOST PARTS of the United States, heating plants must be adequate to heat our buildings from 0 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Actually this range varies with locality from a temperature difference of 100 degrees to one of only 35 degrees. It can be shown that the temperature span for heating, which largely determines size of plant, does not vary directly with the degree-day record (cumulative tempera... View full abstract»

    Prompted by current interest in the possibilities of atomic energy, ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING is presenting a series of articles reviewing the various known and tried methods of producing electric power in the light of present-day knowledge. Previously published articles reviewed electric power sources in general, piezoelectricity, and electrostatic power sources. The present artic... View full abstract»

    THIS REPORT is published to bring its contents to the attention of a larger group of interested engineers than were contacted through its presentation at general meeting sessions so that a broader understanding will be obtained and a wider experience brought into the picture. The suggestions given are the recommendations of the committee, are not to be interpreted as AIEE Standards, and are in no ... View full abstract»

    Effective with the 1948 edition, the “AIEE Year Book” will be published and distributed in the early fall, probably during September, instead of early in the spring as it has been in recent years. The objective of this change is to make available at the beginning of the AIEE administrative year an up-to-date roster that will be a maximum service to the new officer and committee perso...
