"This thesis outlines one approach in designing a system which involves a second order nonlinear differential equation. A large number of variables are involved in this analysis. Therefore, there are many solutions to the problem but only a few of these will satisfy all required conditions. The analysis will be aided by the use of an analog computer. This computer can be manipulated to obtain optimum values for the different variables.
The computer results are presented in graphical form. Reasonable values for the different variables are obtained from these graphs.
The characteristics of the unwinding device were simulated on the analog computer. The analog circuit was designed to allow a complete investigation of the device. These characteristics are presented in graphical form to insure that all design requirements were attained.
All variables required to produce a constant velocity paper unwind device can be calculated or reasonably assumed after this study"--Abstract, page ii.
