Fighting For Those Who Serve
Managing chaos. It's what the men and women in our armed forces have been trained to do every day as they work in combat zones. Sometimes, despite the best preparation, the only thing they can rely on for protection is their vehicle. In collaboration with the United States Army, Notre Dame Engineering Professor John Renaud is working to address one of the most threatening causes of injury and harm in the field today - improvised explosive devices. His team's work focuses on ways to improve the
Ancient Warriors - Sioux
This 25 minute video does an excellent job of showing how the Sioux used the environment and their culture to dominate the plains. Some scenes may be too dramatic for younger students. Shows how the American troop massacred them after the Battle of Little Big Horn.
Food Calories and Land
Obesity is on the rise in the United States, due primarily to the size and composition of the American diet. Discussion topics include lack of exercise, changes in calorie intake over time, and environmental impacts of these increases in consumption.
Value Investing Conference 2010 - Part 7
Dick Mayo summarizes the lessons learned during the two-day conference. Darden Dean Bob Bruner delivers the closing remarks.
TALAT Lecture 3804: Superplastic Alloys
This lecture reviews briefly the commercially available superplastic aluminium alloys and gives their processing and service properties. General background in production engineering and material science is assumed.
TALAT Lecture 3801: Manufacturing Examples and Fundamentals
This lecture describes the fundamentals of the superplastic behaviour phenomenon of aluminium alloys and the basic process parameters which govern the manufacturing of superplastic sheet metal parts. General background in production engineering and material science is assumed.
Particle Technology- Dilute Particle Systems The second lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Dilute particle systems is mainly about sedimentation of single particles and dilute suspensions. The Particle Reynolds number determines the degree of turbulence in the fluid and techniques are provided for settling in laminar

Cycling Through Controversy. Debating Values and Viewpoints
Students practice taking different perspectives when debating environmental issues. Then they take these into account when proposing solutions.
1.223J Transportation Policy, Strategy, and Management (MIT)
This class surveys the current concepts, theories, and issues in strategic management of transportation organizations. It provides transportation logistics and engineering systems students with an overview of the operating context, leadership challenges, strategies, and management tools that are used in today's public and private transportation organizations. The following concepts, tools, and issues are presented in both public and private sector cases: alternative models of decision-making, st
1.253J Transportation Policy and Environmental Limits (MIT)
Through a combination of lectures, cases, and class discussions this subject examines the economic and political conflict between transportation and the environment. It investigates the role of government regulation, green business and transportation policy as facilitators of economic development and environmental sustainability. It analyzes a variety of international policy problems including government-business relations; the role of interest groups, non-governmental organizations, and the pub
Microwave and Wireless Technology Level M Part 1 : past exam questions
This resource (M565 Microwave and Wireless Technology Level M Part 1) contains past examination questions from the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Portsmouth. The objectives of this unit are to provide opportunity for students to learn about microwave devices and associated theory and engage in design, build and testing of RF and microwave circuits such as voltage controlled oscillators, mixers, amplifiers, transmission line theory, filters, couplers and
Frontiers in Biomedical Engineering
The course covers basic concepts of biomedical engineering and their connection with the spectrum of human activity. It serves as an introduction to the fundamental science and engineering on which biomedical engineering is based. Case studies of drugs and medical products illustrate the product development-product testing cycle, patent protection, and FDA approval. It is designed for science and non-science majors.
Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o
Formulas for functions of one variable
This is a chart of functions with one variable and the equations for their standard deviation. It is from the Engineering Statistics handbook whose goal is to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods in their work as efficiently as possible. A link to tools and aids for using the handbook is provided.
This course is an introduction to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire, with an emphasis on urban planning and individual monuments and their decoration, including mural painting. While architectural developments in Rome, Pompeii, and Central Italy are highlighted, the course also provides a survey of sites and structures in what are now North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, and North Africa. The lectures are
Virtual Reality in the Design Studio: The Eindhoven Perspective
Since 1991 Virtual Reality has been used in student projects in the Building Information Technology group. It started as an experimental tool to assess the impact of VR technology in design, using the environment of the associated Calibre Institute. The technology was further developed in Calibre to become an important presentation tool for assessing design variants and final design solutions. However, it was only sporadically used in student projects. A major shift occurred in 1997 with a numbe
Generic Representations and the Generic Grid: Knowledge Interface, Organisation and Support of the (
Computer Aided Design requires the implementation of architectural issues in order to support the architectural design process. These issues consist of elements, knowledge structures, and design processes that are typical for architectural design. The paper introduces two concepts that aim to define and model some of such architectural issues: building types and design processes. The first concept, the Generic grid, will be shown to structure the description of designs, provide a form-based hier
All Caught Up
Commercial fishing nets often trap unprofitable animals in the process of catching their target species. In the following activity, students will experience the difficulty that fishermen experience while trying to isolate a target species when a variety of animals are found in the area of interest. The class will then discuss the large magnitude of this problem. Students will practice their data acquisition and analysis skills, through the collection of data and processing of this information to
TALAT Lecture 4400: Introduction to Friction, Explosive and Ultrasonic Welding Processes of Aluminiu
This lecture gives a brief introduction to friction, explosive and ultrasonic welding techniques of aluminium; it describes the possibilities and results of joining aluminium to different metals, e.g. stainless steel. General mechanical engineering background and basic knowledge in aluminium metallurgy is assumed.
