Cavitation on Ship Propellers
Summary: Cavitation is the transition of a fluid into vapour due to local reduction of pressure which is generated by high local flow velocities. The transition of a fluid into vapour also occurs during cooking of water by an increase of the local temperature. The term cavitation is generally reserved for conditions in which the temperature of the bulk fluid is not changed. Although cavitation can occur in many situations this course focuses on ship hydrodynamics and ship propellers. The course
Acoustic Remote Sensing and Sea Floor Mapping
The course treats the following topics: - Relevant physical oceanography - Elements of marine geology (seafloor topography, acoustical properties of sediments and rocks) - Underwater sound propagation (ray acoustics, ocean noise) - Interaction of sound with the seafloor (reflection, scattering) - Principles of sonar (beamforming) - Underwater acoustic mapping systems (single beam echo sounding, multi-beam echo sounding, sidescan sonar) - Data analysis (refraction corrections, digital terrain mo

Modèles, langage et outils pour la réutilisation de profils d'apprenants
This PhD thesis in computer science belongs to the computer supported learning field. Various information on the learner, or on a group of learner, related to the learning knowledge, skills, conceptions or behavior are collected to compose a profile. Existing profiles differ in their intent, content or structure. Moreover, various learning actors are involved and concerned by these profiles. As of today, there is no technical solution in place for reusing these heterogeneous profiles. This
Concepts in Economic Evaluation
Describes how economic theory is linked to economic evaluation techniques like cost-benefit and cost-effectiveness analysis and to introduce students to many concepts that are specific to economic evaluation.
Methods in Biostatistics II
Presents fundamental concepts in applied probability, exploratory data analysis, and statistical inference, focusing on probability and analysis of one and two samples.
Should Students Use Their Private Laptop Computers for Study Purposes?
Project and Problem Based Learning has become a standard method of teaching at Technikum Wien. In the course of Computer Science students used their own Laptop Computers for all lessons. If students could not afford a laptop, one was provided by the department. The over all results of this experiment have been very promising. It was possible to reduce the total costs of teaching, mainly because less support for the student laptops was needed. Even more important, most teaching obstacles previous
Andrea Coville, Relevance | Talks at Google
On June 17, 2014, Andrea Coville, CEO of Brodeur Partners, visited Google's Cambridge, MA office to discuss her book, Relevance: The Power to Change Minds and Behavior and Stay Ahead of the Competition. Organizations spend billions of dollars annually in an attempt to win customers, move products, and enhance their brand image. However, according to Ms. Coville, many of these efforts are missing an essential element: relevance. She draws on original research and two decades of experience to off
Informational technologies in resolving the social issues of school communities in Uzbekistan
This article examines the experience of 40 schools of Uzbekistan in usage of Informational technologies in resolving the social issues of their communities. The article describe the projects that were used by schools in the framework of the "Global Connections and Exchange - Uzbekistan" programme during the 2005-2007 academic years, and results of the projects and their positive experience.

Building Bridges within Learning Communities through Ontologies and "Thematic Objects"
Communication through artefacts, in the sense of objects (co-)constructed by learners, is a well known mechanism in synchronous shared workspace environments. In this article, we explore the potential of extending this principle to heterogeneous, anonymous and asynchronous learner communities by drawing on existing work, e.g. in the areas of "social navigation" and recommender systems. A new ingredient is the description and provision of "thematic objects" embedded in a task/activity context. De
Graphical Jogthrough: expert based methodology for user interface evaluation, applied in the cas
Walkthrough and Jogthrough techniques are well known expert based methodologies for the evaluation of user interface design. In this paper we describe the use of Graphical Jogthrough method for evaluating the interface design of the Network Simulator, an educational simulation program that enables users to virtually build a computer network, install hardware and software components, make the necessary settings and test the functionality of the network. Graphical Jogthrough is a furth
The use of a computerized brain atlas to support knowledge-based training in radiology
Trainers of radiologists face the particular challenges of teaching normal and abnormal appearance for a variety of imaging modalities, providing access to a large appropriately-indexed case library, and teaching a consistent approach to the reporting of cases. The computer has the potential to address these issues, to supplement conventional teaching of radiology by providing case-based tutoring and diagnostic support based on a large library of images of normal and abnormal anatomy, fully desc
