  • Ferrites for linear applications IIߝPerformance requirements

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):26 - 32
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5146 KB)

    The final installment of this article focuses on the applications and performance requirements of soft ferrite materials. Basic devices employing ferrites include inductors for FDM filters, wide-band and pulse transformers, and high-frequency power transformers. In the typical modern television receiver a total of about 0.6 kg of ferrite cores is used in a variety of applications, such as line out... View full abstract»

    A year in the making, this report has just been released by a special IEEE ad hoc committee. The committee was charged in late 1970 with finding out what the IEEE was already doing in applying technology to social problems, determining what new efforts would be desirable, and how all of the individual and group efforts could best be coordinated. Chief among the suggestions of the committee is the ... View full abstract»

  • The Dartmouth concept: learning in the real world

    Publication Year: 1972, Page(s):36 - 40
    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2287 KB)

    In an innovative program Dartmouth engineering students are sent to Jersey City, where they spend a term divided between teaching and performing an engineering task within the city administration. They help to coach inner-city high school seniors in the material of the ``Man-Made World,'' and teach them the computer language, Basic, together with hands-on operation of a terminal connected to a tim...

    A long-standing expert on electric-shock hazards summarizes the studies that determined the effective body impedance under varying conditions. He describes perception currents, reaction currents, let-go currents, and fibrillating currents. Turning to means for reducing low-voltage (120-240-volt) hazards, double insulation, shock limitation, isolation transformers, and the use of either high freque... View full abstract»

    Rail signal systems have traditionally been employed to prevent collision of trains while permitting them to adhere to a schedule that is adequate for moving passengers and/or freight. In today's rapid-transit systems, however, the corollary objectives of a signal system-namely, controlling the speed of trains, increasing the capacity of the line, and minimizing schedule disruptions caused by tran...

    Request permission for reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (5481 KB)

    The subjects of R&D and manufacturing technologies presently at hand to advance the widespread acceptance of underground transmission were among the concerns of a recent five-day Engineering Foundation conference at New England College, Henniker, N.H. The seminar was cosponsored by a committee of the Electrical Research Council, the Department of the Interior, and the Construction Research Com... View full abstract»
