Particle technology : fluid flow in porous media
This is a video of the fourth lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Fluid flow in porous media covers the basic streamline and turbulent flow models for pressure drop as a function of flow rate within the media. The Modified Reynolds number determines the degree of turbulence in the fluid. The industrial processes of deep bed (sand) filtration and fluidisation are included. This material is suitable for HND

RVC/FAO Guide to Veterinary Diagnostic Parasitology
The ‘RVC/FAO Guide to Veterinary Diagnostic Parasitology ‘is a collaborative project which provides a user-friendly computer-aided educational tool for lecturers in both the UK in the developing world. It focuses on the faecal examination of farm animals for helminth parasites. The techniques outlined in the program are designed for basic training and arranged to take the user step-by step through the procedures. Details of their application, limitations and guidelines for health and safety
Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a uniform
Introduction to modelling for 1st year engineers
These resources cover an introduction to modelling for first year engineering undergraduate. The main focus is on electrical and mechanical systems, but there is also some discussion of dc motors, fluids and heat as well as an introduction to time series modelling. The main emphasis is on why modelling is important and how to go about doing this from first principles (e.g. Kirchhoff's laws, Newton's Laws, etc.). Given the focus is on new students arriving at University, there is no attempt to de
14.581 International Economics I (MIT)

Introduction to Inertia and Inertial Mass
Before you can start learning about Forces and Newton’s Laws of Motion, you need to understand inertia and mass. This video defines both and more specifically inertial mass.
0:13 Defining inertia
1:04 Demonstrating inertia
1:26 Defining inertial mass
2:17 Marcia demonstrates the concept of inertial mass
3:06 Inertial mass not Gravitational mass

Continental Portuguese intermediate semester B
This module is aimed at students in year 2 semester B. The varied exercises cover a range of topics from Portuguese history to cooking. The transcript reader of the listening exercises allows students to identify words/passages they find difficult to understand.
German stage 2 semester A
This module is aimed post GCSE students in semester A and addresses common grammatical problems areas. The grammar exercises are also supported by audio, so that the pronunciation is underlined and listening skills are practiced. The transcript reader of the listening exercises allows students to identify words/passages they find difficult to understand.
Historical skills: Dating documents
This module explains the different dating conventions employed in historical documents. For example, the system of dating by reference to a religious feast day and the year of the reigning monarch has little in common with the modern calendar. Even where a recognizable date is provided, it may not be what it at first appears.... The resource includes a glossary, bibliography and translation of relevant Latin numbers/phrases. Illustrative images of items from our collections appear throughout.

REMIXING ÇATALHÖYÜK For more than a decade, archaeologists and scholars have gathered in central Turkey to explore the remains of the 9,000-year-old village of Çatalhöyük. First excavated in the 1960s, Çatalhöyük became world-famous for its dense architecture and spectacular wall decorations. Between 1997 and 2003, a team from the University of California Berkeley worked intensively on one building there, bringing to light the life history of a Neolithic home. Remixing Çatalhöyük fea
