Motivations for Greening Business Question Bank
Question Bank for Part One of Greening Business: There are many reasons for businesses to improve their environmental and sustainability performances. These include: meeting legislative requirements; pre-empting legislative requirements to gain competitive advantage; product innovation to meet a new market; customer demand; requirements for tenders; cost savings; and protecting/enhancing company image.
Life Cycle Analysis and Carbon Footprinting Session Outline
Part Three of Greening Business: Life cycle analysis is a relatively new approach to environmental management which seeks to understand the impact of all related aspects of a product or service over its whole life cycle from production to disposal. An understanding of life cycle analysis is essential to a holistic understanding of the impact of products and services and hence the environmental benefits of changes to processes. It also underpins the process of carbon footprinting.

Purchasing Session Outline
PowerPoint Prenetation - Part Eight of Greening Business - Purchasing policies within an organization can play a major part in an organization’s overall environmental impact. Purchasing decisions may range from the sourcing of raw materials for manufacturing through to purchasing of less environmentally harmful cleaning products for use in offices. Purchasing decisions have been traditionally made almost entirely on economic grounds, however, increasingly social, ethical and environmental fa
TALAT Lecture 1204: Precipitation Hardening
This lecture provides an introduction to the metallurgy of precipitation hardening, with a presentation of the fundamental mechanisms involved and illustrations from alloys which form the basis for engineering alloys. The Al-Mg2Si system is discussed in some detail because of its commercial importance. The microstructural aspects of precipitation hardening are illustrated by examples, many of which were obtained by electron microscopy; an outline of the background to electron microsco
TALAT Lecture 3100: Machining of Products
In general, aluminium alloys have excellent machining properties compared with other common engineering metals.The lecture describes the machinability of aluminium alloys, the necessary tools and equipments in order to obtain optimum results. General background in production engineering and machine tools is assumed.
TALAT Lecture 4500: Resistance Welding
This lecture describes the spot welding characteristics of aluminium and its alloys, the spot welding process, the choice of process parameters, strength values, electrode life and ?requirements for quality assurance. General engineering background and knowledge in aluminium metallurgy and physical properties, and surface characteristics (e.g. TALAT lecture 5101) is assumed.
TALAT Lecture 4105: Combination of Joining Methods
This lecture describes the combination of mechanical joining with adhesive bonding with respect to application criteria, productions considerations and resultant properties. General mechanical engineering background and familiarity with the subject matter covered in TALAT This lectures 4101- 4104 is assumed.

Advisory board : engineering ethics case study project
This is an Engineering Ethics case study from the IDEA CETL. It examines how membership of an advisory committee might lead to a conflict of interest. It considers integrity and public duty. The session is aimed at students who have not studied ethics before. The teaching format is a one hour session with small group discussions.
CV Joints: A case study for use in teaching in Engineering Ethics
This is an Engineering Ethics case study from the IDEA CETL. The scenario examines issues around the intellectual property of an idea possibly inspired by working at a company. The session is aimed at students who have not studied ethics before. Suggested teaching time is a one hour session, with small group discussions.
Final report: Accommodating students of Drexel University
A significant problem for Drexel University is insufficient quality student housing and the inadequate capacity and inconvenient location of the Handshumacher Dining Center. WLHK2 has proposed a new dormitory and food court on the existing volleyball courts at the southwest corner of 33rd and Arch Streets. The site encompasses approximately 26,000 square feet, with a grade difference of 10 feet from the high elevation at the north to the low elevation at the south. The grade difference is utiliz

5.3.2 Effects of structure on viscoelasticity If a single measurement of ER(t) is taken at an arbitrary but fixed interval of time, say 10 seconds, then it will vary with temperature in a way rather similar to the viscoelastic master curve. Such a curve for atactic polystyrene is shown in Figure 48, where the various zones of behaviour are identif
