  • Electric generating prospects for nuclear power

    Publication Year: 1970, Page(s):24 - 30
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3750 KB)

    Most of the nuclear power plants in the U.S. today are of the light-water variety. In many parts of the U.S. these plants are competitive with plants burning coal, but the electricity that they generate will be more costly in the future as uranium supplies deplete. A promising possible answer to the cost problem is the fast-neutron reactor, which produces more fuel than it consumes. Such a plant s... View full abstract»

    The generosity that characterized research grants in the 1950s and 1960s is apparently at an end. Not only have the purse strings on scientific monies been tightened, but the economic climate and the general nature of scientific spending have eroded the value of the monies received. The scientific community is therefore faced with the problem of how best to allocate the funds that it does get. And... View full abstract»

    In this three-part survey article, some of the demands that traditionally have been made upon switchgear-and how these demands are being met-are described. Part I covers the basic problems associated with current interruptions, arc phenomenons, arc mediums, and testing. In Part II, to be published in August, some of the more general design aspects will be discussed. Part III will treat specialized... View full abstract»

  • Reflection and crosstalk in logic circuit interconnections

    Digital logic circuits are now available and are being used with delay times that are comparable to the delays of interconnections used in packaging these circuits. At high speeds, however, such interconnections no longer behave as simple short circuits, but take on the appearance of transmission lines. Unless transmission lines are terminated properly, ``reflections'' can develop that might be of... View full abstract»

    The engineer as a political person is considered in this address presented by M. Ponte, representing the Institut de France (Academie des Sciences), at the second general meeting of the World Federation of Engineering Organizations at UNESCO, Paris, France. Dr. Ponte is a former vice president of the Institute of Radio Engineers. View full abstract»

    This discussion is directed to least-squares estimation theory, from its inception by Gauss1 to its modern form, as developed by Kalman.2 To aid in furnishing the desired perspective, the contributions and insights provided by Gauss are described and related to developments that have appeared more recently (that is, in the 20th century). In the author's opinion, it is enlightening to consider just... View full abstract»
