When we think of electronic communications it is natural to think first of television because we see it so frequently. While television is an extremely important part of the communication area, we should not limit our thinking to it alone. If we take electronic communications to mean the conveying of information from point-to-point by means of electromagnetic waves, then we must consider many applications other than television.

The spectacular failures of many welded ships during the early years of World War II created a major engineering emergency. The failures involved the loss of both ships and lives, at a cost to the United States of $50 million. Approximately 5, 000 welded merchant ships were constructed; of these, over 1,000 suffered cracks in varying degrees. Some 190 ships sustained serious fractures. A dozen broke completely in two.

She would spend approximately 240 hours on the project, examining the fracture, carrying out tests and preparing a report. Her knowledge of fracture mechanics became the clue to unravelling the mystery. Four pages of instructors notes...

Steve Vamos, a mechanical engineer, was faced with the problem of modifing the location of the wheels of a trailer for a back-hoe. Discussing the problem with his former design professor makes him realize that the problem could be handled with a few measurements and the analysis that he had learned in the first course in statics. The case is in three parts A B & C. An instructors note is included. This case study is part of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Engineering...
