Design for Sustainability, Fall 2004
This course on sustainability will cover the implications of this topic on engineering, design, and architecture. The course will begin with a general survey and discussion of current trends, followed by the introduction of the life cycle assessment (LCA) method as a rigorous, quantitative alternative to current popular sustainability measures for the built environment.

Describing motion along a line
Motion is vital to life, and to science. This unit will help you to understand why classical motion is probably the most fundamental part of physics. You will examine motion along a line and the ways in which such motion can be represented, through the use of graphs, equations and differential calculus.

Physics in architecture
Developed in 1998 by Dr John Whittle (Department of the Built Environment) using Authorware, this package contains brief interactive notes on eight areas of physics in which architects need a working knowledge. However, it is also useful to others in science, engineering and social sciences looking for an introduction to the topics concerned. These topics are: Units of measurement; Scalar and vector quantities; Newton’s laws; Mass and weight; Action and reaction; Waves; Heat, work and energy;

Enhancing Physics Knowledge for Teaching – Condensed matter
In this session we’ll look at certain macroscopic properties of solids that result from the quantum mechanical behaviour of electrons. This field of physics initially concerned just the behaviour of solids so was referred to as solid state physics. It has been called condensed matter physics since the late 1960s, when it was realised that the type of collective behaviour extended beyond that of electrons in solids to many other systems such as, for example, superfluids.

TALAT Lecture 1253: Creep
This lecture constitutes an introduction to creep and to the creep response of aluminium and its alloys. It provides basic information on creep and its mechanisms; it gives a description of the more extensively used mathematical relations among creep variables (time, stress and temperature); it illustrates the creep response of pure Aluminium and of Al-Mg alloys; it provides a synthesis of the information available in the literature on the creep behaviour of a number of new alloys and composites

12.581 Phase Transitions in the Earth's Interior (MIT)
This course discusses phase transitions in Earth's interior. Phase transitions in Earth materials at high pressures and temperatures cause the seismic discontinuities and affect the convections in the Earth's interior. On the other hand, they enable us to constrain temperature and chemical compositions in the Earth's interior. However, among many known phase transitions in mineral physics, only a few have been investigated in seismology and geodynamics. This course reviews important papers about

E-science, E-research and E-learning: New Perspectives for Graduate Studies
The quality of education for doctoral students is closely linked to the quality of the research they undertake. Benefiting from technological advances, new distributed and collaborative research practices can be witnessed. The concept of e-science has emerged and evolved to the concept of e-research. These concepts bring about a new research philosophy and the notion of collaboratory. Our research project aims to develop a renewed doctoral training approach and to facilitate researchers' adoptio

Web-based teaching as a performance enhancer in foreign language teaching in Sri Lanka
This paper discusses the results of a pilot study conducted at University of Kelaniya in integrating web-based teaching into the study programmes of German as a Foreign Language. Since German is not a language popular at secondary school level, student offering to read the language at the university commence language learning as beginners. Albeit the courses are designed to impart language knowledge to all students equally, the performance of the majority of students at examinations indicated th
