Maps and plans, architects‗ and engineers‗ drawings, graphs and tables: all are models we use in everyday life. This unit will introduce you to the modelling process enabling you to recognise that systems models may be used in different ways as part of a process for: improving understanding of a situation; identifying problems or formulating opportunities and supporting decision making.

Love on the rocks?
How badly has the recession affected the relationship between political parties and business? Expert in the field - Professor Mick Moran - assesses the cracks in the relationship and how the crisis will affect it in the future. Professor Moran was at the University to open the inaugural seminar series for the Centre for British Politics.
Structures and materials : section 4 behaviour of materials : presentation transcript
This is a presentation transcript for Structures and Materials : Section 4 : behaviour of materials. It introduces the behaviour of materials by introducing the stress-strain curve. The concepts of elastic and plastic deformation are covered. This leads to a discussion of the micro-structure of materials and a physical explanation of what is happening to a polycrystalline material as it is loaded to failure.

2.3 Short-term and long-term planning
Clearly an important step in planning your work is actually constructing a plan. We suggest you carry out short-term (3 months) and long-term (3 years) planning. The long-term planning will make sure you keep your eye on the big picture, remembering what your PhD enquiry is about and making sure you do not spend too much time on what seems important now. Obviously, it is harder to see how things will happen during the later stages, and they will not be as clearly focused as the earlier ones;
3.3.2 Planning the investigation
A plan was needed to determine the chain of events leading up to and during the collapse. That sequence would necessarily depend on which parts had broken first, and a fault tree would enable a plan of action in isolating the cause (or causes) of the disaster. Such a systematic approach is known as fault-tree analysis or FTA, and is part of the armoury of methods used by accident investigators. With large-scale and devastating accidents, all possibilities, however remote, need evaluation in t

Particle technology : dilute particle systems
This is a video of the second lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Dilute particle systems is mainly about sedimentation of single particles and dilute suspensions. The Particle Reynolds number determines the degree of turbulence in the fluid and techniques are provided for settling in laminar and turbulent systems. Industrial clarification is included.

Mobile Usability in Educational Contexts: What have we learnt?
The successful development of mobile learning is dependent on human factors in the use of new mobile and wireless technologies. The majority of mobile learning activity continues to take place on devices that were not designed with educational applications in mind, and usability issues are often reported. The paper reflects on progress in approaches to usability and on recent developments, with particular reference to usability findings reported in studies of mobile learning. The requirements of
