Purchasing Session Outline
PowerPoint Prenetation - Part Eight of Greening Business - Purchasing policies within an organization can play a major part in an organization’s overall environmental impact. Purchasing decisions may range from the sourcing of raw materials for manufacturing through to purchasing of less environmentally harmful cleaning products for use in offices. Purchasing decisions have been traditionally made almost entirely on economic grounds, however, increasingly social, ethical and environmental fa
Kevlar fibre composite shear surface
This is an image of the shear surface in a failed composite beam. 'Hackles' of matrix are clearly visible where shear has occurred within the matrix and it is also clear that shear has occurred across the fibre/matrix interface. The fibres are for the most part totally unscathed, though some mis-aligned fibres have become caught between the shear surfaces and 'fibrillated' by rolling and bending actions. It may be that this failure mechanism has been partly inhibited by poor fibre alignment sinc
An Electronic Design Assistance Tool for Case Based Representation of Designs
In precedent based design, solutions to problems are developed by drawing from an understanding of landmark designs. Many of the key design operations in this mode are similar to the functionalities present in case based reasoning systems: case matching, case adapting, and case representation. It is clear that a rich case base, encoding all major product types in a design domain would be the centerpiece of such an approach. EDAT (Electronic Design Assistance Tool) is intended to assist in preced
Glass ceramic, heat treated at 750°C for 3 hours
Glass ceramics are materials that are cooled from the melt in the form of a glass, and then heat treated to induce controlled crystallisation of the glass. Heterogeneous nucleation is carried out at a temperature to maximise the nucleation rate (common nucleating agents include TiO2 and ZrO2), and the temperature is then raised sufficiently to cause the nuclei formed to grow rapidly. Glass ceramics are strong, reasonably tough, transparent to IR radiation, have a low coefficient of thermal expan
Recursos de anima??o digital para aprendizagem de leitura de plantas [Digital Animation Resources fo
This paper discusses the evolution of the technical resources employed in a website destined for the professional formation of constructors workers throught the interpretation of plans. Developed as a doctoral thesis in the Ph.D. program of Information Technology in Education, the reconstruction of the website is assimilating new resourses of digital animation, allowing a richer and more significative interaction, acording to the principles of Piaget's theory on constructivism that oriented the
Bone china (with sensitive tint plate)
China clay consists mainly of SiO2 and Al2O3, and is valued for its whiteness (which is due to the low iron oxide content). Bone consists mainly of hydroxyapatite, Ca5(PO4)3OH, and the source supply is mainly ox bone.

Sintered disc of Hydroxyapatite
The micrograph shows sintered disc of Hydroxyapatite (Ca10(PO4)6(OH)2), a calcium phosphate ceramic with similar composition to natural bone mineral.
Poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) porous scaffold for tissue engineering.
The patients own cells are seeded onto the scaffold and allowed to attach and start producing new bone. The construct is implanted into the defect site, where eventually the polymer will biodegrade and be completely removed, leaving a natural autogenous bone graft. This technique is particularly useful for large defects, or where the host bed is compromised due to disease, although it is still at the research stage. Average Pore Size 350-550 micrometre, porosity estimated at 35-45%.
Measurement and Control - Raw Materials
These are the raw materials for a Learning Activity that provides an introduction to measuring metrics that management have responsibility for. It will explore the metrics and tools that can be used to measure 4 perspectives within the business environment based on the balanced scorecard model by Kaplan and Norton. The balanced scorecard will be used as a basic model to illustrate the different types of measurement that can be taken for different elements in the business. It will provide a numbe
Using Microsoft Project for Creating Gantt Charts - Raw Materials
These are the raw materials for a Learning Activity that provides an introduction to the use of Microsoft Project and the use of its powerful features to create Gantt Charts as an aid to conduct successful project management to achieve set results.
Bone structure and function
This topic begins with the primary functions of bone and explores the structure, showcasing anatomical images of the femur as an example. A diagrammatical overview of a bone cross-section is shown and bone structure is explored by describing the bone matrix and its composition along with its functions. A brief overview of the different types of bone cells and their relevant functions are highlighted.
