    In the planning of Operation Overlord, the D-day invasion of 1944, it was essential that the enemy should be deceived regarding the time and place of the sea-borne assault. Deception plans ensured that the enemy's forces were deployed in several possible invasion zones so as to minimise the expected opposition to the invasion. Many of the deception plans were highly effective. Of particular note, ... View full abstract»

    A research and development programme has been in progress for the last eight years between Dunlop-Slazenger International (Golf Division), Delcam International Ltd., and the Department of Manufacturing Engineering at Loughborough University of Technology. This work has resulted in an extensive programme of product (in this case golf equipment) related design-and-make-projects. The work has been de... View full abstract»

    The advent of ubiquitous computing promised much for education, and indeed very powerful developments, spurred on by the computer-supported co-operative working (CSCW) community, are now becoming available. However, `chalk-and-talk' and slide sequences still remain a significant part of the pedagogical portfolio of many tutors, across all phases of education. This situation persists for a number o...

  • Graphics programmable calculators in electronics education

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):89 - 92
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (236 KB)

    This short article argues that some of the more recent graphics calculators have many uses in engineering and engineering education, and can perform some tasks better than PCs. It is argued that many of the features on the more advanced types are especially useful for electrical and electronics engineers, and the reader's attention is drawn in particular to the ease with which problems involving c...

  • A plea for liberal values in technical education: the two cultures 36 years on

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):93 - 96
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (312 KB)

    This paper is concerned with the consequences of ever-increasing pressures in the education of engineers and scientists to specialise. It is argued that the loss of idealism in politics is in danger of leading to an education policy aiming at vocational effectiveness rather than the human needs of the student. It is suggested that this will be counter-productive industrially as well as socially View full abstract»

  • Flux-compression generators

    Publication Year: 1995, Page(s):52 - 56
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (332 KB)

    This article describes the flux-compression process for the production of a high-energy pulse, and identifies two classes of generator-one which produces high energy (MJ) and high current (MA) in an external load and another which concentrates a magnetic field into a small volume at a high flux density (MG; 1 MG=102 T) and a high energy density (105 MJ/m3). For eac... View full abstract»

    General National Vocational Qualifications (GNVQs) were introduced in the UK September 1992. They will offer young people the opportunity to learn to high standards in a practical and vocational context. Here, the authors describe how GNVQs prepare young people for employment in broad occupational areas, whilst also offering a route to higher education View full abstract»
