TALAT Lecture 1302: Aluminium Extrusion: Alloys, Shapes and Properties
This lecture provides sufficient information on the extrusion of aluminum and the performance of extruded products to ensure that students, users and potential users of those products can understand the fabrication features that affect properties and economics. It shows how, in consequence, alloy choice for any end application depends not only on the characteristics required for that end use but also on production requirements. General knowledge in materials engineering and some knowledge about

Discharge and Sediment Transport in the Field
In this quantitative field activity, students collect field data on channel geometry, flow velocity, and bed materials. Using these data, they apply flow resistance equations (Manning and the depth slope product) and sediment transport relations (Shields curve) to estimate the bankfull discharge and to determine if the flow is sufficient to mobilize the bed. This activity requires students to utilize theoretical and empirical equations derived in class in the context of a field problem. Learning

Professor Blight begins his lecture with a description of the sea change in Civil War scholarship heralded by the Social History revolution of the 1960s and 1970s. Along with a focus on the experience of the common solider, women, and African Americans, a central component of this shift in scholarly emphasis was an increased interest in the effects of the war on the Union and Confederate home fronts. After suggesting some of the ways in which individual Americans experienced the war, Professor B

European Civilization from the Renaissance to the Present Fall 2008
This course is an introduction to European history from around 1500 to the present. The central questions that it addresses are how and why Europe--a small, relatively poor, and politically fragmented place--became the motor of globalization and a world civilization in its own right. Put differently how did "western" become an adjective that, for better and often for worse, stands in place of "modern." Our approach will be broadly cultural, and we will consider politics, economics, society, reli
