Multidisciplinary System Design Optimization, Spring 2004
This course is mainly focused on the quantitative aspects of design and presents a unifying framework called "Multidisciplinary System Design Optimization" (MSDO). The objective of the course is to present tools and methodologies for performing system optimization in a multidisciplinary design context, focusing on three aspects of the problem: (i) The multidisciplinary character of engineering systems, (ii) design of these complex systems, and (iii) tools for optimization.

Mini project : ROM based sine wave generator : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation introducing a ROM-Based Sine Wave Generator. It is part of the 2009/10 BEng in Digital Systems and Computer Engineering (course number 2ELE0065) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. This project requires the establishment of a communication protocol between two 68000-based microcomputer systems. Using ‘C’, students will write software to control all aspects of comp
Derelict site simulation
This Powerpoint driven simulation takes participants through a structured series of common dilemmas faced by managers looking after derelict sites. Risks must be appraised within resource constraints (and the influence of chance). Decisions taken affect subsequent events. Can you steer the site safely through this maze? The resource can be used in the teaching of lawyers about occupiers’ liability, as well as construction and real estate students and also environmental management students. The

Green business and green values: the CIBAM Global Business Symposium- Part 1
Corporations and governments are having to face up to the new challenges of how to operate in a global business environment where the financial sector is broken and needs fixing, and protecting the environment is a major concern for all. "Sustainable competitiveness" is the new catch phrase as business leaders and government's embrace a different language. Phrases like "business ethics", "environmental protection" and "wealth distribution" are being talked about in board rooms and cabinets aroun

22.05 Neutron Science and Reactor Physics (MIT)
This course introduces fundamental properties of the neutron. It covers reactions induced by neutrons, nuclear fission, slowing down of neutrons in infinite media, diffusion theory, the few-group approximation, point kinetics, and fission-product poisoning. We emphasize the nuclear physics basis of reactor design and its relationship to reactor engineering problems.
