Showdown at the last chance saloon: research meets policy in early professional learning
Government funding of educational research has reached a critical stage. The view of those close to the purse strings seems to be that educational research has become increasingly irrelevant to policy development. Consequently, in a political climate of best value for money, the allocation of funding for research now tends to be accompanied by criteria which require, for example, engagement with users, measured impact and knowledge transformation. The extensive Teaching and Learning Research Pro

Transforming Grammars for Goal Driven Style Innovation
Shape grammar transformations have been used for developing new design styles by the systematic modification of grammars that encode existing styles. We make use of a style description scheme to aid grammar transformations for goal driven style change. A rule base was authored for the design of Greek temple facades, and was augmented with a style description scheme. These were tested at a student workshop wherein students were asked to develop grammars based on given style briefs. Results gained

Wetting on flexible substrates: a finite element formulation
Wetting is an important phenomenon in industrial applications such as coating industry as it could affect the coating uniformity and production rate. In modeling dynamic wetting on rigid solids, one of the challenges is to relieve the singularity in the viscous stress arising at the dynamic contact line due to double valued velocity. The singularity arising at the contact line is a mathematical singularity and not a physical singularity and hence, needs to be relieved. There are several models t
