TALAT Lecture 2201.01: State of the Art
This lecture gives an introduction into use of aluminium in stressed applications, with examples of the past experiences and likely future developments. A general engineering background is an advantage but the subject matter is suitable for most audiences concerned with transport and structural applications.
TALAT Lecture 1102: Environmental Factors
This lecture reviews the environmental factors affecting the aluminium industry and the remedial practices followed; it describes the concept of a product life cycle and the importance of recycling; it also describes the secondary aluminium industry, its history, processes, products and structure; it outlines the methodology used to calculate recycling rates and summarizes the scope and size of the European aluminium industry.
Knowledge Strategy 2: Knowledge Mapping
Video lecture from a series on Knowledge Management delivered by Dr Alan Eardley. Running time approximately 50 minutes.
TALAT Lecture 3206: The Feeding of Castings
This lecture provides an introduction to the techniques used to compensate for the solidification shrinkage of castings. The students will be able to understand the basic principles of how to design a feeder system to produce a shrinkage-free casting. Basic knowledge of castings production, basic physics and metallurgy background is assumed.
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)

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.

Introduction to modelling for 1st year engineers
These resources cover an introduction to modelling for first year engineering undergraduate. The main focus is on electrical and mechanical systems, but there is also some discussion of dc motors, fluids and heat as well as an introduction to time series modelling. The main emphasis is on why modelling is important and how to go about doing this from first principles (e.g. Kirchhoff's laws, Newton's Laws, etc.). Given the focus is on new students arriving at University, there is no attempt to de
Mini project : digital video editing : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation about digital video editing. It is part of the 2009/10 BSc (Hons) in Multimedia Technology (course number 2ELE0075) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. This project entails the creation, editing, and encoding of a video sequence with the intention of distribution over a particular digital broadcast platform (e.g. DVB-T or ipTV). This project provides an awareness of c
14.581 International Economics I (MIT)
This course provides a graduate-level introduction to the field of international trade. It examines the theory of international trade and foreign investment with applications in commercial policy. Topics include gains from trade, Ricardian models of technological differences, Heckscher-Ohlin models of factor endowment differences, intermediate input trade, wage inequality, imperfect competition, firm heterogeneity, multinational firms, international organization of production, dynamics, trade po
Basic Instructions on multiplying decimals.
Teaches basic steps for multiplying decimals. Solves problem (4.2 X 5.9) by removing the decimal and working as a whole number. Once solved, shows how to determine the decimal place in the answer by counting the digits behind the decimal in the original problem. Also shows how to round decimal into a whole number to see if answer is correct. Then shows how to solve a problem with no whole number (0.3 X 0.2). Once answered shows how to add zero to whole the whole number place and how to convert t
Series of Lectures to the UCT Rugby Team
In the first lecture Prof Noakes speaks of the role of self belief in athletic performance Đ Ôwhat you really believe will happen is exactly what will happenŐ. He uses his experiences as a member of the medical team to the World Cup winning springboks in 2007 to comment on how the UCT rugby team can use their brains to win.In the second and third lecture he speaks about identifying team weaknesses and strengths and how the team has to aspire to stronger bodies but even stronger minds.In addit
Technology and Society
Students of engineering and surveying need to understand and be convinced that through their future professional work they will relate to the rest of society. Throughout their careers they will need to strive to ensure that this relationship is meaningful and successful. Only then will they earn respect for themselves and their profession, and ensure their work will be valued and recognised. For engineers and surveyors to meet their responsibilities towards society they must be able to appreciat

Global Change Teacher's Guide
Global change is a relatively new area of scientific study using research from many disciplines to determine how Earth systems change, and to assess the influence of human activity on these changes. The Global Change section of the Teaching Packet consists of an introduction and five activities. In teaching these activities, four themes are important: time, change, cycles, and Earth as home.
USGS Materials Maps
Visitors can learn about the relatively new field of imaging spectroscopy, which allows specific absorption features, caused by chemical bonds in materials, to be mapped spatially. Topics include an introduction to the procedure, environmental applications, vegetation and biota mapping, lithologic, and mineral mapping. A set of links provides access to reports, accompanied by spectroscopic images, on the use of this new tool in chosen locations.
