An interactive computer graphics routine was developed and used in teaching EE 553, Electromagnetic Fields, Autumn Quarter, 1969, in the Electrical Engineering Department of the University of Utah. The routine displayed the propagation of the voltage waveform produced by a step-function generator down a two-wire transmission line, showing reflections for the users choice of various values of resistance, capacitance, or inductance at the end of the line and for various values of generator resistance. The report describes the development and use of the UNIVAC 1108 FORTRAN 5 system.
