TALAT Lecture 2405: Fatigue an Fracture in Aluminium Structures
This lecture outlines modern fatigue design procedures and standards, the respective background information; it introduces fatigue design by testing; it presents fatigue data analysis and evaluation; it covers safety and reliability issues in aluminium design. This material has been utilized together with further definitions for classification of structural details to provide a proposal supported by the European Aluminium Association as a National Application Document, which may also be consider
Machining is a shaping technique that is widely used in industry. Machining by chip removal can be characterised by the action of a cutting tool that allows a part both to be cut into specific dimensions and given a particular surface finish within a range of given tolerance values. Aluminium alloy is machined in various industrial sectors, including aeronautical, automotive and moulding industries. A selection of interactive Flash movies from the award-winning aluMATTER website available to dow

TALAT Lecture 2401: Fatigue Behaviour and Analysis
This lecture explains why, when and where fatigue problems may arise and the special significance to aluminium as structural material; it helps to understand the effects of material and loading parameters on fatigue; to appreciate the statistical nature of fatigue and its importance in data analysis, evaluation and use; it shows how to estimate fatigue life under service conditions of time-dependent, variable amplitude loading; how to estimate stresses acting in notches and welds with conceptual
15.521 Management Accounting and Control (MIT)
This course examines management accounting and related analytical methodologies for decision making and control in profit-directed organizations. It also defines product costing, budgetary control systems, and performance evaluation systems for planning, coordinating, and monitoring the performance of a business. This course defines principles of measurement and develops framework for assessing behavioral dimensions of control systems; impact of different managerial styles on motivation and perf
Divine Office - Episode 5 in "Persevering in Prayer: Getting It Started and Keeping It Going"
Prayer, more than simply a technique to be mastered or one more project to be undertaken, is, at its most basic level, simply making ourselves available to God. This program discusses what prayer is, ways and places of prayer, getting started and the potential struggles along the way. Moderator: Monsignor Michael Heintz '08 Ph.D, Director of Notre Dame's Master of Divinity program Panelists: Rev. Brian Daley, the Catherine F. Huisking Chair in Theology; Tami Schmitz, Assistant Director of Spir

Career skills in economics
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009 Careers skills is a compulsory module for all Year 2 Economics students. It is not available to students from outside the School. It is one of a number of modules that make up the Nottingham Advantage Award. The Nottingham Advantage Award is a new initiative focusing on student skills, employability and personal and academic development. Initially created for undergraduate students,
The package was written in 1996. Radio immuno assay (RIA) is a technique for measuring concentrations of antigens. Although better techniques have subsequently been developed from it, understanding RIA forms the basis for understanding these derivatives. RIA belongs to the family of competition assays which are widely used in science, medicine and related industries to measure the concentrations of biologically active molecules. This package introduces the concepts of RIA and will be useful to a
How can we take into account student conceptions of the facial angle in a palaeontology laboratory w
This study investigates student conceptions of the facial angle as a way to attain understanding elements of the theory of human evolution. The chosen laboratory work involved determining the species of a human cranium, and students had to design and write down their own experimental procedure. Three versions of the laboratory work were carried out leading to different student productions. Three aspects will be presented in the present paper, which are related to the three conceptual difficultie

Wake Meandering -- An Analysis of Instantaneous 2d Laser Measurements
The vast majority of wind turbines are today erected in wind farms. As a consequence, wake generated loads are becoming more and more important. We present a new experimental technique to measure the instantaneous wake deficit directly, thus allowing us to quantify the wake meandering as well as the instantaneous wake expansion expressed in a meandering frame of reference. The experimental results are subsequently used in a preliminary verification of the basic conjecture of a wake meandering mo

Building Tetrahedral Kites
Working in teams of four, you and your team will build a tetrahedral kite following a specific set of directions and using specific provided materials. You will use basic processes of manufacturing systems -- cutting, shaping, forming, conditioning, assembling, joining, finishing, and quality control -- to manufacture a complete tetrahedral kite within a given time frame. Evaluation of your project will involve the efficiency of your team as well as your finished product.
