High magnification SEM image of open cell polyurethane foam
If a gas is injected into a liquid it forms a cellular foam structure. When a thermoset prepolymer of low viscosity is foamed, the polymer can drain from the cell walls (driven by surface tension) before it sets at the cell edges, leaving an open-celled foam. The cell edges have three concave sides, and some remnants of collapsed cell walls can be seen at the cell edges.
Fe, Ni 30, C 0.3 (wt%), quenched - martensite plates
This sample was quenched to -80 °C to give a metastable martensitic microstructure. The martensite plates show a lenticular morphology as the material attempts to shear as it transforms but is unable to open up voids at the grain boundaries. The plates form in a similar way to mechanical twins but the shear processes lead to changes in crystal structure as well as crystallographic orientation.

Getting Started with Source Control with Visual Studio Online | Visual Studio Toolbox This is another in Robert's Getting Started series, where he provides an introduction to a topic that everyone knows about but not everyone is actually doing (or doing enough of). In this episode, Robert shows how to get started with source control with Visual Studio Online. You will see how to set up a team project using Visual Studio Online, add a solution to source control, check out and check in source code and how to search, merge and branch the codebase.

4.661 Theory and Method in the Study of Architecture and Art (MIT)
This seminar is open to graduate students, and is intended to offer a synoptic view of selected methodologies and thinkers in art history (with some implications for architecture). It is a writing-intensive class based on the premise that writing and editing are forms of critical thinking. The syllabus outlines the structure of the course and the readings and assignments for each week. The discipline of art history periodically surges into "crisis." The demise of formalism as a guiding tenet, or
