    A personal computer program for analysis of electrostatic boundary value problems, based upon charge simulation, is described. The program provides students in the Electrical Engineering curriculum at Carnegie-Mellon University with color graphics representations of potential field structures for arbitrary boundary geometries, specified with a graphics tablet or input data file. Charge simulation ... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a graduate course in the area of modeling and control of large-scale systems. The objective of the course is to study 1) model simplification techniques in the analysis and simulation of large-scale systems, 2) procedures in assessing systems behavior, and 3) decentralized and hierarchical control design methods. A unique feature of the course is the use of a number of interact... View full abstract»

    The role of an advisor in engineering education is described in terms of increasing demands on educators. In addition to being helpful to current students, increased quality advising may lead to an increase in the number of faculty members in the future. Assuming that increased skills in advising will benefit students and faculty, engineering faculty initiated a mentor seminar. Results obtained fr... View full abstract»

  • Teaching Well: A Guide For Undergraduate Teaching???Particularly for New Engineering and Technology Faculty

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):17 - 26
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2601 KB)

    Quality in engineering and technology education has always been a major concern for higher education. This has become even more important now as we become increasingly technology-oriented as a culture and as an economy. Both government and industry have taken steps to increase the number of Ph.D. graduates in engineering and technology in anticipation of faculty shortages in the years to come. But...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2036 KB)

    A graduate course on the design of reliable digital systems is described. One of the unique features of this course is the teaching of design methodologies. The concepts learned in class are solidified through a required course project where the students apply the techniques and the design methodologies studied. The project consists of developing a preliminary design of a highly reliable and fault... View full abstract»

    A history of the early Van de Graaff generator built by the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1937 is given, together with an outline of the succeeding events which led to that corporation's major role in nuclear energy. The paper is based on a talk given on the occasion of the dedication of this machine as an IEEE Historical Milestone in May of 1985. View full abstract»

  • Guided-Wave Modes in Cylindrical Optical Fibers

    Publication Year: 1987, Page(s):43 - 51
    Cited by:  Papers (9)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (1921 KB)

    This paper proposes a logical and simple approach to the mode designations in a cylindrical optical fiber. An important approximation is introduced in the mathematical analysis to simplify the characteristic equation. Mode enumerations, field distributions, and propagation constants for some lower order modes are discussed and illustrated. The justification of using the linearly polarized mode des...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (894 KB)

    A simple, nongraphical technique for convolving two functions (when one or both functions can be expressed explicitly in terms of singularity functions) is described in this paper. The technique is based on some properties of singularity functions and can easily be explained to undergraduate students. In fact, the paper is written such that it can serve as class notes to undergraduates. View full abstract»

    Identification of a perspective, for presenting to junior level engineering students, of how a signal transiting an instrument channel is molested by the dynamic properties of that channel. An approximation for relating the frequency content of the signal with the channel bandwidth to achieve a specified percent error over all time is presented. View full abstract»
