Fracture surface in polystyrene
The fracture surfaces are generally very sharp and angular, indicating fast, brittle fracture with little ductile tearing. Parabolic 'beach marks', can be seen where the fracture has grown at a speed comparable to the speed of sound in the material (and has thus been periodically arrested) and indicate the direction in which the fracture has occurred. In places, there is evidence of ductile tearing, and also a finely fibrous surface which is the remnant of crazes. There is also some evidence o
"Muslim Peace Building in Conflict Regions of Southeast Asia"
A historical overview of the situation in southern Thailand and southern Philippines is presented, followed by a discussion on peace building efforts in conflict regions. Panelists give special attention to welfare and security issues in these areas. The panel is moderated by Kikue Hamayotsu (Ph.D., Department of Political Science, Northern Illinois University). Panelists include: Kriya Lanputeh (Yala Islamic University), Abdulghoni Suetair (Prince of Songkla University), Pattama Hamingma (Asian
Great Wall of China, Badaling Pass, Near Beijing
In this video clip, explore a restored section of the Great Wall, which people can climb so high that the top of it seems as if it is lonely. This is a clip from "The Last Emperor's Home Video". (1:24)
Personality and values
Welcome to ‘Personality and Values’, one of several ‘Futures’ workbooks, which help you choose and prepare a career route after graduation. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio The aim of this workbook is to help you to clarify or identify your personality type and work values as a step toward choosing work

3.987 Human Origins and Evolution (MIT)
This course examines the dynamic interrelations among physical and behavioral traits of humans, environment, and culture to provide an integrated framework for studying human biological evolution and modern diversity. Topics include issues in morphological evolution and adaptation; fossil and cultural evidence for human evolution from earliest times through the Pleistocene; evolution of tool use and social behavior; modern human variation and concepts of race. The class also studies stone artifa

Responsiveness and Social Expression; Seeking Human Embodiment in Intelligent Fa?ades
This paper is based on a comparative analysis of some twenty-six intelligent building facades and sixteen large media-facades from a socio-psychological perspective. It is not difficult to observe how deployment of computational technologies have engendered new possibilities for architectural production to which surface-centeredness lies at that heart of spatial production during design, fabrication and envelope automation processes. While surfaces play a critical role in contemporary social pro
Defra's climate change plan 2010
This 172-page document outlines Defra's plans to make "sustainable adaptation decisions" in conjunction with its key delivery partners: the Environment Agency, Natural England, and the Forestry Commission. It explains what Defra is doing to support the countrys transition to a low-carbon economy, develop stronger scientific evidence, and develop better skills.
Fundamentos del Atletismo (2012)

Dunes: Process and Form
This site provides Flash animations that illustrate form variations in sand dunes. Visualizations, photographs and supporting text demonstrate the conditions necessary to produce various dune shapes, including longitudinal, crescent, star, parabolic and transverse dunes. These resources may be integrated into lectures, labs or other activities.
An optimization method of the facility location by genetic algorithm
In planning of community-facilities, it is important to decide the facility location to provide the effective service for residents. The behavior of residents using the facility and the evaluation methods of the location have been studied. But, finding the optimum location is very hard in actual planning because the volume of calculation depends on the number of feasible locating points of facilities. To conquer the difficulty of searching the optimum location, we propose an optimization method
