Abstract

COMPLETION OF THIS PROJECT WILL PROVIDE A MULTIMEDIA SOFTWARE TUTORIAL INTRODUCTION TO THE PHYSICS AND ENGINEERING CONCEPTS OF SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNETS FOR HIGH ENERGY PHYSICS ACCELERATORS. THE PRESENTATION OF THE MATERIAL WILL MAKE FULL USE OF THE LATEST COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY FOR HYPERTEXT, INTERACTIVE, MULTIMEDIA PRESENTATIONS, INCLUDING VIDEO FOOTAGE, SOUND, GRAPHICS, AND ANIMATION. THE TARGET LEVEL FOR THE TUTORIAL IS JUNIOR OR SENIOR LEVEL UNDERGRADUATES. PHASE I EFFORT FOCUSES ON THE DESIGN AND FEASIBILITY STUDY. THE TUTORIAL CONTENT WILL BE DEVELOPED AND RELEVANT VIDEO FOOTAGE, PHOTOGRAPHS, OR OTHER MATERIAL FROM THE SUPERCONDUCTING MAGNET RESEARCH PROGRAMS AT THE NATIONAL LABORATORIES WILL BE LOCATED. SOFTWARE FOR IMPLEMENTING HYPERTEXT PRESENTATIONS, COMPUTER ANIMATION, AND INTERACTIVE GRAPHICS WILL BE EVALUATED. SOURCES AND PROCEDURES FOR TRANSFER OF VIDEO FOOTAGE TO CD-ROM DISKS WILL BE SURVEYED. PRELIMINARY CONTACTS WILL BE MADE WITH UNDERGRADUATE PHYSICS OR ENGINEERING DEPARTMENTS AND INTERNET SITES TO LOCATE POTENTIAL TEST SITES FOR PHASE II. PHASE II WILL CONSIST OF IMPLEMENTATION AND TESTING OF CD-ROM AND INTERNET VERSIONS. IN PHASE III, THE TUTORIAL WILL BE DISTRIBUTED ON CD-ROM DISKS AND INTERNET, FOR USE BY COLLEGES OR ANY INTERESTED COMPUTER USERS.
