File Description [return to top]

The Ei Compendex database is the machine-readable version of the Engineering Index (monthly/annual), which provides abstracted information from the world's significant engineering and technological literature. The Compendex database provides worldwide coverage of approximately 4,500 journals and selected government reports and books. Subjects covered include: civil, energy, environmental, geological, and biological engineering; electrical, electronics, and control engineering; chemical, mining, metals, and fuel engineering; mechanical, automotive, nuclear, and aerospace engineering; and computers, robotics, and industrial robots. In addition to journal literature, over 480,000 records of significant published proceedings of engineering and technical conferences formerly indexed in Ei Engineering Meetings are included in File 8.

ONTAP Ei Compendex is available for ONline Training And Practice; it contains over 30,000 records from several months of 1986 from File 8.

  /AB     The  performance  of three types of interconnection schemes for 
     large  multimicrocomputer systems, namely, ring, binary cube, and 
     tree networks, is analyzed. These systems are modeled as networks 
     of   queues,   and   analytical  results  are  obtained  for  two 
     performance measures: mean queue length at any node and mean time 
     spent  in  system by a random message. The analytical results are 
     then  verified  through simulation. The results are useful in the 
     design  and  performance evaluation of multimicrocomputer systems 
     because   the  need  for  expensive  simulations  is  reduced  or 
     eliminated. 8 refs.
