Abstract:

The Report on the ENIAC consists of five separately bound parts, as follows 1. ENIAC Operating Manual 2. ENIAC Maintenance Manual 3. Part I, Technical Description of the ENIAC, Volume I-Chapters I-VI 4. Part I, Technical Description of the ENIAC, Volume II-Chapters VII to XI 5. Part II, Technical Description of the ENIAC. Part I of the Technical Description is intended for those who wish to have a general understanding of how the ENIAC works, without concerning themselves with the details of the circuits it assumes no knowledge of electronics or circuit theory. Part II is intended for those who require a detailed understanding of the circuits. Its organization, to a great extent, duplicates that of Part I so as to make cross referencing between the two parts easy. The ENIAC Operating Manual contains a complete set of instructions for operating the ENIAC. It includes very little explanatory materials, and hence assumes familiarity with Part I of the Technical Description of the ENIAC. The ENIAC Maintenance Manual includes description of the various test units and procedures for testing, as well as a list of common and probable sources of trouble. It assumes a complete understanding of the circuits of the ENIAC, i.e. a knowledge of both Parts I and II of the Technical Description of the ENIAC.
