Jigs and fixtures : presentation transcript
This is a presentation about Jigs and Fixtures (Design for Manufacturing: Jigs & Fixtures HNC Year 1 in Aircraft Industries Boeing 767-400 Case Study). The use of jigs and fixtures plays a major role in modern production engineering. The basic methods for determining the requirements and configuration of these devices is described . Examples of common practice are also given. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre Open Engin

TALAT Lecture 2104.02: Case Study on Windows
This lecture gives teachers and students grounding in the development of satisfactory and suitable window design in aluminium; it helps them acquire an understanding of the principles underlying good design. Students need to be able to design aluminium windows which conform to local planning regulations and which are suitable for national traditions in each market they are offered in. This involves the acquisition of local climatic data since the products need to withstand the climatic condition
CÁLCULO NUMÉRICO (2009)
El Cálculo Numérico es una asignatura troncal de cuarto cuatrimestre, que se imparte cuando ya lo han hecho el resto de asignaturas básicas de Matemáticas de la titulación. En ella se describen, desarrollan y programan diferentes técnicas numéricas, como una extensión natural de las analizadas en la asignatura de Laboratorio de Matemáticas. Numerosos problemas en distintas áreas de las Matemáticas, no tienen una solución analítica cerrada. Tal es el caso de determinadas ecuaciones
COMPUTADORES Y PROGRAMACIÓN (2008)
Los computadores son usados ampliamente en la aeronautica, tanto en los sistemas que controlan el vuelo de los aeronaves (aviónica), como en los sistemas auxiliares que los controlan (sistemas de control de tráfico aéreo, guiado, etc.). Además, los ordenadores se usan en la ingeniería para desarrollar y hacer pruebas de modelos antes de realizar los primeros prototipos reales, Por lo tanto es básico conocer el funcionamiento de los computadores y tener unas nociones básicas de programaci
Gastric Lavage Procedure Animation
This resource can be used to illustrate the gastric lavage procedure Gastric lavage is the standard method of obtaining specimens for Tuberculosis TB diagnosis in young children. It is generally carried out only in infants and children below the age of two years In older children specimens for TB microscopy and culture are better obtained by sputum induction or voluntary coughing. There are two items included here Gastric lavage Presentation PPT presentation that illustrates and explains the pro

Solid State Physics II
As the second part of a two-semester-class, students will study the characteristics of semiconductors, metals, superconductors and magnetic substances among various solid forms.
Based on electro-and magneto ststics which covered in the previous class electromagnetism 1, the course introduces basic and intermediate topics which include Maxwell equations, electromagnetic wave theory, electrohynamics and special theory of relativity.Course Objectives. Electromagnetism is one of the fundamental physics theories, which is required to understand many modern science/engineering achievements as well as natural phenomena. The main purpose is to learn and understand major concept
