Ni-Superalloy, as-extruded microstructure
Micrograph shows a fully recrystallized microstructure containing many equiaxed grains and γ' precipitates. In addition to this there are also several carbides and borides (seen as white). There is evidence of misorientation between adjacent grains, demonstrated by the large degree of contrast. View schematic diagram of γ' microstructure
Edexcel HND unit : engineering science (Nqf L4) : document transcript
This is a document transcript about Edexcel HN Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4). The aim of the unit is to investigate a number of major scientific principles that underpin the design and operation of engineering systems. It is a broad-based unit, covering both mechanical and electrical principles. It is intended to give an overview that will provide the basis for further study in specialist areas of engineering. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Acade
Mini project : USB temperature logging : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation about USB temperature logging. It is part of the 2009/10 BEng in Electrical Engineering (course number 2ELE0066) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. The aim of this project is to develop a temperature logging system based on USB development Kit. The temperature logging system should collect ambient temperature samples, sample manipulation and display the data in a tex
Particle technology : hindered systems and thickening
This is a video of the third lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Hindered systems is mainly about sedimentation of concentrated suspensions. The way concentrated dispersions behave is also covered: buoyancy correction and viscosity for Newtonian suspensions. Industrial thickener design is included, based on incompressible settling behaviour. This material is suitable for HND, BSc, BEng, MEng, and MSc leve
Cardiology Examination - Examination of the hands
Look at the hands to see if there is evidence of: - clubbing - cyanosis: are hands cold or warm? - stigmata of endocarditis - splinter haemorrhages - Osler’s nodes - Janeway lesions - nicotine stains - capillary refill time
Chemical Water Quality Measurement For Ecologists
Short video introducing and illustrating the type of field based chemical water quality measurement carried out by ecologists. Phosphate measurement is used as the example. Aimed at students without previous field experience of water quality sampling.

TALAT Lecture 2712: Design Example in Fatigue
This is a fully documented calculation example with direct reference to the actual code provisions. Its purpose is to present an outline of necessary steps but also of possible considerations for other cases or possibilities of enhancement of fatigue behaviour in service. It is based on European Standard ENV 1999-2 (Eurocode 9)
TALAT Lecture 2713: Fire Design Example
Example of fire design of the industrial building. This is a fully documented calculation example with direct reference to the actual code provisions. It is based on European Standard ENV 1999-2 (Eurocode 9)

Extended architecture of knowledge management system with Web 2.0 technologies
Knowledge management systems (KMS) become increasingly important in periods of crises and economic slowdown, as many organizations are forced to lay off people, to reduce research and ICT budgets, to restructure departments and to optimize their costs. Subsequently, organizational knowledge assets, and mainly the existing tacit knowledge are threatened. This raises the importance of technologies that could assist organizational efforts to capture the existing knowledge and to mobilize it in orde
The Viking Age: England and Francia
Scandinavians, popularly known as Vikings, began to explore and settle in Europe from the ninth century. Contemporary Christian writers voiced their dismay at what they saw as the sudden eruption of these savage pagans into their area. Commentators since, down to the 20th century have largely echoed these writers' views, sometimes portraying the Scandinavians as mindless thugs led by psychopaths. In a period when savagery in warfare was commonplace, the Vikings have been placed by some in a spec
Economics of Law: module outline
A module outline for a course on the Economics of Law delivered by Professor Antony Dnes at the Central European University. It is typical of a modern law and economics syllabus. The course provides an overview of standard models of the economic analysis of law, based on common-law and civil-law countries: studying property rights, contracts, torts, crime, legal costs regimes, and litigation issues from an economic perspective.
Sustainable Communities: Research in Action (HTML navigation)
This core module will enable you to develop a range of key geographical and transferable skills relating to project research and management. You will begin to understand what a professional geographer does through a consultancy based project which will involve interacting with a client (the University) to create real and useful research. This will help instil a sense of professionalism in your work and create high quality outputs. You will also develop an understanding of how businesses and com
