Since 1905, the Department of Agricultural Engineering, now the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE), has been a leader in providing engineering solutions to agricultural problems in the United States and the world. The department’s original mission was to mechanize agriculture. That mission has evolved to encompass a global view of the entire food production system–the wise management of natural resources in the production, processing, storage, handling, and use of food fiber and other biological products.

History
In 1905 Agricultural Engineering was recognized as a subdivision of the Department of Agronomy, and in 1907 it was recognized as a unique department. It was renamed the Department of Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering in 1990. The department merged with the Department of Industrial Education and Technology in 2004.

Abstract

DIAN (Digital ANalog), a programming system developed by Farris (4), was used for solving the equations in the model. DIAN allows a digital computer to be programmed using analog computer programming techniques. The DIAN program deck is fed into the digital computer to instruct it to simulate an analog computer. Problem "patching" is simulated by means of a coded data deck. One IBM card represents each component of the simulated analog computer. A complete description of DIAN cannot be given here. Readers interested in using the system are referred to a programming guide by Farris and Burkhart (5). Since DIAN solves equations incrementally, the equations must be written in slightly different form than for programming on an analog computer. This is because of the particular incremental form of the inputs and outputs to the DIAN components illustrated in Figs. 7 and 8.
