Abstract:

Computer discussed differs primarily from other types in characteristics of its storage facility; storage is magnetic drum cylinder with sheet of magnetic material wrapped around its surface; when drum is made to revolve, bits of information in form of current pulses can be recorded as magnetic spots in surface of drum; only application of computer to design of gas transmission line is considered.
