Prediction of variation in dimensional tolerance due to sheet metal hydroforming using finite elemen
Hydroforming of aluminum sheets is very important in the aircraft industry, due to the advantages of less wrinkling and cost effectiveness. Numerous research has been conducted in this field, which deals with the development of methods and tools to control accuracy of the bend and prediction of the springback after the sheet metal has been formed. Rivets are the most commonly used fasteners to fit together the subassemblies of the aircraft. The holes for riveting are punched after any forming op

Physique et médecine : l'imagerie médicale (video)

L'imagerie médicale a sans aucun doute entraîné ces vingt dernières années une transformation radicale dans la façon d'aborder le diagnostic et le suivi thérapeutique. Un diagnostic de localisation d'une lésion cérébrale qui nécessitait un examen clinique long et minutieux par un neurologue expérimenté se fait aujourd'hui avec une précision millimétrique grâce au scanner ou à l'imagerie par résonance magnétique (IRM). Là où le maître entouré de ses élèves démontrait

Collaboration Load
Does collaboration increase or decrease cognitive load during learning? On one hand, collaboration enables some degree of division of labour that may reduce cognitive load. On the other hand since interacting, expressing thoughts, monitoring another’s understanding, grounding, etc., are mechanisms inducing some extraneous cognitive load, they may create cognitive overload and impede learning mechanisms. However this additional load may explain why collaboration sometimes leads to knowledge cons
