GRADING:
Test I: 20% (CLOSED BOOK) (Thursday, Feb. 15)
Test II: 20% (CLOSED BOOK) (Thursday, April 5)
Final Exam: 30% (CLOSED BOOK) (Tuesday, 3:30pm, 05/01/01)
Design Project: 10%
TOPICS:
OUTCOME:
The following competancies should be imparted to the students:
COMPUTER USAGE:
The students are expected to be familiar with at least one of the computer languages or computer math packages such as Matlab to complete some homework problems and the projects. Students should sign up for computer accounts in the Engineering Workstation Laboratory (EWL).
LABORATORY:
The students construct at least one antenna per given specifications. The radiation characteristics are measured and compared to design values.
ABET CATEGORY:
Engineering Science: 2 credits (67%), Engineering Design: 1 credit (33%)
COMPUTER ASSIGNMENT: To be announced in class.
DESIGN CONTENT:
The design project concerns design aspects of wiretype antennas. The students are required to perform the initial designs with empirical design formulas. The design is refined using a sophisticated PC antenna analysis code. The students then construct their antennas and their performance is measured at the Lexmark, International, Inc.'s EMC laboratory. The students are then required to do a formal report summarizing their design and discussing nonideal performance aspects of their antennas.
