12.091 Basics of Impact Cratering & Geological, Geophysical, Geochemical, Environmental Studies of S
There are now about 170 identified impact craters on the Earth, and this number is growing, ever since the well known discovery of Meteor Crater in 1920s. Currently, multi-interdisciplinary research studies of impact structures are getting conducted in fields like mineralogy, petrology, environmental geology, and marine biology. The course objectives are to introduce basic principles of impact cratering, understand the application of analytical tools, and become familiar with geological, geochem
3.A04 Modern Blacksmithing and Physical Metallurgy (MIT)
Physical metallurgy encompasses the relationships between the composition, structure, processing history and properties of metallic materials. In this seminar you'll be introduced to metallurgy in a particularly "physical" way. We will do blacksmithing, metal casting, machining, and welding, using both traditional and modern methods. The seminar meets once per week for an evening laboratory session, and once per week for discussion of issues in materials science and engineering that ti

Particle Technology- Fluid Flow in Porous Media The forth 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 i

Math Seminar: Mental Abuse To Humans
Why do so many college students need remedial math? Why do so many of those students then continue to struggle with the subject? Why does the thought of even having to take a math class cause immediate anxiety? Two math teachers taught an Introductory Algebra course at a unique summer program through Ferris State University that was designed to combat those specific problems. During this seminar, they will share some of their strategies for teaching remedial math at the college level, emphas
A Response to the UK Energy Review - Renewable Sources and the Nuclear Option
In the face of both increasing concern about climate change and questions as to the security of our gas and oil supplies the Government is undertaking a major review examining the future options for energy provision in the UK. Much of the debate surrounding the issue of energy policy is focussed on the possible role of nuclear power in supplying the UK's energy needs. In a new report Dr Catherine Mitchell and Dr Bridget Woodman from the University of Warwick's Centre for Management Under Regula
Lecture 10: Advances in Biomedical Engineering
Professor Lionel Tarassenko on "Advances in Biomedical Engineering". Biomedical Engineering is a relatively new subject but advances in body scanners (from CT to MRI) in the last 2 decades have had a major impact on the practice of medicine. Oxford engineers have made significant contributions to the development of medical imaging and in other areas of biomedical engineering also, for example in artificial knees and needle-free injection of drugs and vaccines. The lecture reviewed Oxford's contr
2.3.3 Law Another very broad area of knowledge is law. Social workers’ roles are bound by the law, even those who do not work for statutory organisations like social services. The law sets out what social workers’ duties and powers are, what they must do (a duty) and what they are permitted to do (a power). For example, social workers employed by statutory and voluntary agencies are bound by law relating to human rights and discrimination. You will find many other pieces of legislation in add

6.977 Semiconductor Optoelectronics: Theory and Design (MIT)
6.977 focuses on the physics of the interaction of photons with semiconductor materials. The band theory of solids is used to calculate the absorption and gain of semiconductor media. The rate equation formalism is used to develop the concepts of laser threshold, population inversion and modulation response. Matrix methods and coupled mode theory are applied to resonator structures such as distributed feedback lasers, tunable lasers and microring devices. The course is also intended to introduce

Mountain Region of the United States
This is a general video about the mountain region of the United States. Students would benefit of having a map to help them understand where this region is located and how the rivers flow from it. (Running Time 2:56)
The Great Tamasha: cricket, corruption and the turbulent rise of modern India [Audio]
Speaker(s): James Astill | James Astill speaks about his new book and his encounters with cricketers, fans, businessmen, bookies, Bollywood stars and slum kids. James Astill is the political editor of The Economist.
1.061 Transport Processes in the Environment (MIT)
This class serves as an introduction to mass transport in environmental flows, with emphasis given to river and lake systems. The class will cover the derivation and solutions to the differential form of mass conservation equations. Class topics to be covered will include: molecular and turbulent diffusion, boundary layers, dissolution, bed-water exchange, air-water exchange and particle transport.
This is the website for [re]design, a social enterprise which aims to promote sustainability within the design community. Regarding environmental issues such as climate change as challenges and opportunities, [re]design aims to encourage designers to review and remake products and services from an environmentally aware perspective. Aiming to engage diverse audiences, including the public, education and business, [re]design holds regular events and exhibitions, whilst seeking out and promoting
1.223J Transportation Policy, Strategy, and Management (MIT)
