Document Type: Journal Paper


Theory is explained; available voltages simulating moments of electrical beam are used to produce currents; simulating forces proportional to moments are used again to load another electrical beam of same length as first one, which will behave, therefore, as conjugate beam; examples of circuits, consisting only of resistors, are given for typical cases together with experimental results.
