- Logical diagram in hard copy relating to the computer CSIRAC.
A logical diagram is a detailed graphical representation of one of the principal parts of CSIRAC. Each functional component is represented by a symbol. The diagram shows the connections between these components. In CSIRAC, each functional component consisted of several physical components such as vacuum tubes, resistors and capacitors. Logical diagrams are used to understand the functioning of a circuit.
