Sustainable Processes and Energy
Sustainable process and energy engineering is one of the most important engineering developments in the 21st century. But what precisely do we mean by it? Industrial processes and energy systems are sustainable if they promote development that 'meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own demands'. But achieving sustainability in the industrial realm will not be easy and can only be accomplished by overcoming formidable technical challe

Le temps et sa flèche (audio)

Conférence du 6 juillet 2000 par Etienne Klein. Chacun comprend de quoi nous voulons parler lorsque nous prononçons le mot temps, mais personne ne sait vraiment quelle réalité se cache derrière lui. Si le mot est clair, la chose ne l'est pas, qui se perd dans les brumes dès qu'on tente de la saisir. Pourtant les sciences, en particulier la physique, interrogent sans relâche la nature et les propriétés du temps. Quel statut faut-il lui donner ? S'écoule-t-il de façon régulière ?

Les grandes questions de cosmologie (audio)

La cosmologie est une discipline scientifique très particulière puisqu'elle embrasse l'Univers dans son ensemble, à toutes échelles, depuis celle de la particule élémentaire jusqu'aux plus grandes structures. Les questions de cosmologie qui seront évoquées au cours de la conférence sont : - Quelles sont l'organisation et la géométrie de l'Univers ? A quelles lois est-il soumis ? - L'univers a-t-il une histoire ? Quel est son âge ? Peut-on prédire son évolution ultérieure ? - L

Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics
The course describes in a simple and practical way what non-equilibrium thermodynamics is and how it can contribute to engineering fields. It explains how to derive proper equations of transport from the second law of thermodynamics or the entropy production. The obtained equations are frequently more precise than used so far, and can be used to understand the waste of energy resources in central process units in the industry. The entropy balance is used to define the energy efficiency in energy

ALPS Demonstrating respect for a service user or carer
The following assessment has been designed to promote reflection, with a particular emphasis on the sharing of feedback interprofessionally. It is intended to capture immediate feedback from a variety of sources, culminating in a focussed action plan. In addition to your own self-assessment you are encouraged to seek feedback from; - the service user or carer (Always consult your practice assessor first) - a student colleague (from your own or a different profession) - a professional such as a p

ALPS Common Competency Map - Communication
The work of ALPS is based on the hypothesis that if students receive feedback from different assessors (including other professionals, peers, service-users etc) in diverse practice situations, then confidence, competence, assessment reliability and interprofessional working skills will all be improved. Communication skills, Team Working and Ethical Practice were selected as the initial competences to focus on as they are common across the QAA benchmarks and professional bodies’ regulatory oc

Cavitation on Ship Propellers
Summary: Cavitation is the transition of a fluid into vapour due to local reduction of pressure which is generated by high local flow velocities. The transition of a fluid into vapour also occurs during cooking of water by an increase of the local temperature. The term cavitation is generally reserved for conditions in which the temperature of the bulk fluid is not changed. Although cavitation can occur in many situations this course focuses on ship hydrodynamics and ship propellers. The course
