did not originally contain an internal store. However,
during construction, the idea was discussed and was added
later. Although ENIAC best performed the job it had been
designed to do, calculate ballistic tables, it was used
for many other types of scientific problems such as weather
prediction, atomic energy calculations, cosmic ray studies,
thermal ignition, random-number studies and wind-tunnel
1945, three major lines of development -- logical automata,
statistical machines, and calculating machines had come
together to form the electronic computer.
more insight was needed to bring together the modern computer.
1944, the army asked the Moore School to build a more
powerful computer than the ENIAC.
