Using composite materials to replace bone
In this podcast, Professor Chris Rudd, Dean of the faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham, describes his work with composite materials in the car industry and how it can be applied to the field of medicine. Traditionally, patients who have lost bone in an accident or have had bone removed due to cancer have had to endure two very long and very painful operations. One operation to attach steel plates to the bone, and a second operation once the bone has healed, to remove them. F

Acoustic Approach in Converting Heat to Electricity
A promising approach in converting heat or waste heat to electricity is in using the thermoacoustic effect. When heat generates a temperature gradient along a stack of large-surface area material inside an acoustic resonator, an intense sound can be generated. This type of energy converter, which is a self-sustained oscillator, has been developed so that the sound can be converted inside the unit to electricity using a piezoelectric device. Such devices are simple, and they have essentially no
Energy Efficiency In Buildings And Heat Supply Solutions: A German Perspective For The Nuclear Shutd

Southern California to Hudson Bay
This sequence of still frames was acquired as the International Space Station was tracking east-northeastward across the United States. The sequence begins over the Pacific Ocean as the ISS headed toward the Baja peninsula, and continues northeast through the northern Great Plains, with heavier cloud cover shown near the midwest. The video ends as the ISS is flying over the Great Lakes, and finally near Hudson Bay (left of track).

Environments and Ecosystems
Students explore the biosphere and its associated environments and ecosystems in the context of creating a model ecosystem, learning along the way about the animals and resources. Students investigate different types of ecosystems, learn new vocabulary, and consider why a solid understanding of one's environment and the interdependence of an ecosystem can inform the choices we make and the way we engineer our communities. This lesson is part of a series of six lessons in which students use their
