Injuries to Long Bones and Lungs
The treatment of the orthopedic trauma patient is complex and the potential for adverse events are high. In this episode of Grand Rounds, UW Medicine's Dr. Joshua Lindsey moderates a panel reviewing the evolution of trauma patient treatment of femur bone fractures. The panel, including Dr. Margaret Neff of UW Medicine, and Dr. Daphne Beingessner, UW Professor of Orthopedics, also discusses pulmonary complications in treatment. They focus on a multi-pronged approach to improve recovery rates fo
This movie illustrates the fission process. As can be seen in the movie, the parent nucleus decays into two fission fragments of unequal mass and several neutrons. From TLP: Introduction to Nuclear Processes
The Future of Publishing
Nostalgia, anxiety and optimism mix in this panel devoted to imagining what lies ahead for the book, as publishing professionals and others discuss the impact of digital technology on the business.

12.163 Surface Processes and Landscape Evolution (MIT)
The course offers an introduction to quantitative analysis of geomorphic processes, and examines the interaction of climate, tectonics, and surface processes in the sculpting of Earth's surface.
Microwave and Wireless Technology Level M Part 1 : past exam questions
This resource (M565 Microwave and Wireless Technology Level M Part 1) contains past examination questions from the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Portsmouth. The objectives of this unit are to provide opportunity for students to learn about microwave devices and associated theory and engage in design, build and testing of RF and microwave circuits such as voltage controlled oscillators, mixers, amplifiers, transmission line theory, filters, couplers and
Frontiers in Biomedical Engineering
The course covers basic concepts of biomedical engineering and their connection with the spectrum of human activity. It serves as an introduction to the fundamental science and engineering on which biomedical engineering is based. Case studies of drugs and medical products illustrate the product development-product testing cycle, patent protection, and FDA approval. It is designed for science and non-science majors.
Dante in Translation
The course is an introduction to Dante and his cultural milieu through a critical reading of The Divine Comedy and selected minor works (Vita nuova, Convivio, De vulgari eloquentia, Epistle to Cangrande). An analysis of Dante's autobiography, the Vita nuova, establishes the poetic and political circumstances of the Comedy's composition. Readings of Inferno, Purgatorio and Paradiso seek to situate Dante's work within the intellectual and social context of the late Middle Ages, with special attent
Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o
This course is an introduction to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire, with an emphasis on urban planning and individual monuments and their decoration, including mural painting. While architectural developments in Rome, Pompeii, and Central Italy are highlighted, the course also provides a survey of sites and structures in what are now North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, and North Africa. The lectures are
TALAT Lecture 4400: Introduction to Friction, Explosive and Ultrasonic Welding Processes of Aluminiu
This lecture gives a brief introduction to friction, explosive and ultrasonic welding techniques of aluminium; it describes the possibilities and results of joining aluminium to different metals, e.g. stainless steel. General mechanical engineering background and basic knowledge in aluminium metallurgy is assumed.
TALAT Lecture 3208: The Finishing of Castings
This lecture provides an introduction to some of the finer points in the production of high quality castings. The students will be able to understand the various processes for sealing porosity in badly made castings and to appreciate factors influencing the accuracy of castings, including a basic understanding of how to control and measure casting dimensions. Basic understanding of the foundry industry is assumed.
TALAT Lecture 3204: The Freezing of Castings
