Doctoral Studies at Cranfield -- My View: Imran Zawwar
Imran Zawwar introduces himself, his research topic around economic entrepreneurship and explains what led to him pursuing a PhD at Cranfield School of Management.
Electronic and magnetic properties of solids are lectured based on quantum mechanics and solid state physics. Beginning with fundamentals of quantum mechanics, perturbation theories are given as some approximation methods. These will be applied to electromagnetic radiation and energy band theory. Fundamentals of transportation, scattering and diffraction of waves and particles in solids are mentioned. Fundamental theories of magnetic properties spin dependent phenomenon and superconductivity wil

High carbon steel
Treated at 1000 centigrade for 15 minutes and then isothermally treated at 250 centigrade for 25 days, end of bainite transformation. This micrograph shows laths of bainitic-ferrite and the austenite thin films trapped between them (dark phase). Reference: Proceedings of International Conference on Martensitic Transformations (ICOMAT '02), Helsinki, Finland, 2002.
Austenitic stainless steel
Shows the grain structure of an austenitic stainless steel NF709, observed using light microscopy on a specimen polished and etched electrolytically using 10% oxalic acid solution in water. Many of the grains contain annealing twins. NF709 is a creep-resistant austenitic stainless steel used in the construction of highly sophisticated power generation units.

21H.466 Imperial and Revolutionary Russia: Culture and Politics (MIT)
At the beginning of the eighteenth century Russia began to come into its own as a major European power. Members of the Russian intellectual classes increasingly compared themselves and their autocratic order to states and societies in the West. This comparison generated both a new sense of national consciousness and intense criticism of the existing order in Russia. In this course we will examine different perspectives on Russian history and literature in order to try to understand the Russian E
Philip Cowley, Reader in the University’s School of Politics and International Relations, was recently nominated for the Times Higher young researcher of the year award. In this podcast, Philip discusses his research into back bench rebellions within the British parliament. Philip describes his research as practical politics, linking academic research to the real world of political debate. Since the British Labour party’s re-election with a reduced majority of 66 MPs in May 2005, some back b
International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used in r
Energy resources: Wind energy
Wind energy was the fastest growing power source at the starts of the 21st century, yet wind-driven mills and pumps, and nautical sails for transport, were, along with waterwheels, the first mechanical devices to power industrial production. The advantages of harnessing wind energy are obvious; it is free, clean and widely available. This unit explores the Wind as a potential source of useable energy. An OpenLearn Resource - Time: 3 hours & Level: Intermediate
Nuclear Energy: Radiation Exposure
This lesson provides an overview of the sources and potential effects of radiation exposure. Topics include the history of the United States' domestic nuclear power program, the concept of ionizing radiation, and how radiation dosage is measured.
