Design a basic water system model
This Unit of Competency focuses on the features of basic water and wastewater systems. It contains information, activities and suggested assessment tasks that enable learners to understand the characteristics of simple water and wastewater systems, together with the basic scientific principles used in the development of a working water system model. Learners discover how water flows and find out about the operations behind a working water system and use this knowledge to design a water system mo
Facetted aluminium dendrites
In this system, pro-eutectic aluminium dendrites form with facetted morphologies. Such morphologies are uncommon but are a consequence of the diluteness of the aluminium in the melt. The rest of the melt has solidified as a fine Al-Sn eutectic.
How and When to Use Colons
This lesson excerpt talks about how and when to use colons. Some example sentences that use colons are shown. There are five ways in which a colon can be used. Only one way is discussed in any depth in this video.
Cu 70, Sn 30 (wt%) bronze, as cast
High tin Cu-Sn alloy. The phase diagram of this system is complicated, at room temperature the equilibrium phases are α (copper) and ε.
Historical skills : dating documents
Explains the different dating conventions employed in historical documents. For example, the system of dating by reference to a religious feast day and the year of the reigning monarch has little in common with the modern calendar. Even where a recognisable date is provided, it may not be what it at first appears.... The resource includes a glossary, bibliography and translation of relevant Latin numbers/phrases. Illustrative images of items from our collections appear throughout.
TALAT Lecture 4601: Introduction to Brazing of Aluminium Alloys
This lecture describes the characteristics of brazing aluminium and the process involved; it helps to understand the use potential and the limitations of brazing aluminium. Basic knowledge of aluminium alloys designation system, surface treatment and corrosion behaviour is assumed.
Flash animation in which a virtual patient is provided to test pupillary (consensual) light reflex, palpbral and corneal reflexes in addition to testing nervous control of extraocular muscles of the eye.

This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught Autumn semester 2009 Infections are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The body fights infection through the functions of the immune system, whose power has been harnessed by the development of vaccination (immunisation). Suitable for study at: Undergraduate levels 1 and 2. Dr Ian Todd, School of Molecular Medical Sciences Dr Ian Todd is Associate Professor & Reader in Cellular Immunopatho
TALAT Lecture 1204: Precipitation Hardening
This lecture provides an introduction to the metallurgy of precipitation hardening, with a presentation of the fundamental mechanisms involved and illustrations from alloys which form the basis for engineering alloys. The Al-Mg2Si system is discussed in some detail because of its commercial importance. The microstructural aspects of precipitation hardening are illustrated by examples, many of which were obtained by electron microscopy; an outline of the background to electron microsco

Glass ceramic, heat treated at 750°C for 3 hours
Glass ceramics are materials that are cooled from the melt in the form of a glass, and then heat treated to induce controlled crystallisation of the glass. Heterogeneous nucleation is carried out at a temperature to maximise the nucleation rate (common nucleating agents include TiO2 and ZrO2), and the temperature is then raised sufficiently to cause the nuclei formed to grow rapidly. Glass ceramics are strong, reasonably tough, transparent to IR radiation, have a low coefficient of thermal expan
International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie)
The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) is an US-based non-profit organisation which seeks to evaluate the impact of development spending and initiatives with the aim of improving the lives of poor people living in low-income and middle-income countries. The 3ie website provides details of its grant programme, online resources including full text publications, details of its structure and activities, and a database of impact evaluations.
Final report: Accommodating students of Drexel University
A significant problem for Drexel University is insufficient quality student housing and the inadequate capacity and inconvenient location of the Handshumacher Dining Center. WLHK2 has proposed a new dormitory and food court on the existing volleyball courts at the southwest corner of 33rd and Arch Streets. The site encompasses approximately 26,000 square feet, with a grade difference of 10 feet from the high elevation at the north to the low elevation at the south. The grade difference is utiliz
Evaluation of the Boscombe West & Springbourne Healthy Living Centre in Bournemouth,Sept 2005-Oct 20
The aim of this report is to summarise the Evaluation of a Healthy Living Centre. It explores and discusses the outcomes from the evaluation as well as the evaluation development from conception through to implementation. The report will also outline the processes through which the relevant evaluation theory emerged and identify the core lessons learnt as experienced by the external evaluators from Bournemouth University. The scope of this report does not extend to the on going findings of the
Decision Making and Problem Solving for Business Success
101 page workbook (see also Decision Making and Problem Solving for Business Success reading pack to accompany workbook). This study pack has been written on the assumption that you may know nothing at all about decision support techniques. The key assumption is that by understanding and applying decision making and problem solving within your organisation, you will become a better manager. By studying the pack and the accompanying readings you should begin to understand decision support techniq
Why do we need enterprise in the curriculum?
Abstract: Three easily confused concepts - Enterprise – having an idea, and taking advantage of the opportunities to make things happen Entrepreneurship – an activity which leads to the creation and management of a new organisation designed to pursue a unique, innovative opportunity (Hindle & Rushworth, 2000) Intrapreneurs are "dreamers who do," those who take hands-on responsibility for creating innovation of any kind within an organization’. (Pinchot 1999) It’s not about starting a bus
The Viking Age Scotland and the Irish Sea Provinces
Viking warriors from Scandinavia began to attack the coasts of western Europe towards the end of the eighth century. Christian writers registered their shock and horror at these raids by pagans upon monasteries, churches and royal sites. The raiders were mobile, using highly manoeuvrable light-weight sailing ships, which could also be rowed. They caught te armies of the Christian kingdoms unprepared, lacking the organisation to deal with them effectively. But there was much more to the Vikings t
Gender, crime and justice
This level 6 unit critically evaluates contemporary understandings of gendered crimes. Providing an understanding of the theoretical perspectives, definitions and understandings of the concept of gender and the crimes men and women are involved in, the unit will seek to assist students’ exploration of current attitudes towards gender within contemporary society and the criminal justice system.
This topic describes the components of the conducting system of the heart and their individual roles. An image illustrates the overall process and shows their relative locations. The topic concludes with a schematic diagram illustrating the direction of blood flow and whether it is oxygenated or de-oxygenated.
