Konstruktion av drivenhet till Veritas : Konstruktionsförslag till drivenhet / Mechanical design proposal of a motorized trolley for the Veritas project

Öhrman, Mikkel January 2016 (has links)
During this project a mechanical design proposal has been developed for the Veritas project at Uppsala University. The Veritas resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) spectrometer aims at becoming a world leading beamline for RIXS in the 275-1500eV range. The instrument is almost 10 meters long and will rotate 120 degrees in the horizontal plane. Usually similar instruments are rotated manually. This project has developed a design proposal that allows the instrument to be rotated to a set angle without the need to manually move the instrument. The project started off with a phase of information gathering. It focused mainly on available products and suitable components. The information gathered here was later used to create concepts. To focus the concept generation on the most critical funcionality the challange was divided up into four different problems. Conecpts were generated for each of these problems. By comparing the conecepts against one another the most suitable concepts was merged into a final design proposal during a phas of embodiement design. This resultet in a motorized trolley. The trolley pulls or pushes the instrument around its rotational axis by moving along a rolled stainless steel T-profile. The final design proposal meets the mechanical and finiancial requirements set at the beginning of this project. / Under detta examensarbete har ett konstruktionsförslag på en förflyttningsenhet tillVeritasprojektet tagits fram. Veritasprojektet är ett forskningsprojekt där en storspektrometer skall komma att användas.Spektrometern är dryga tio meter lång och utvecklas för MAX IV laboratoriet i Lund.För att genomföra olika mätningar med spektrometern krävs möjligheten att rotera den ihorisontalplanet. Vid liknande instrument runt om i världen görs detta manuellt dåinstrumenten kan förflyttas med en liten kraft.Konstruktionsförslaget beskriver hur en enhet bäst utformas för att klara av att roteraden stora spektrometern 120° i horisontalplanet. Det presenterade konstruktionsförslagetuppfyller de ställda kraven och den preliminära kostnaden är under den satta budgeten.Under arbetets gång har tillgängliga komponenter och färdiga produkter studerats.Utifrån dessa förstudier har olika koncept genererats. På samtliga förutspådda problemhar problemlösningar genererats. Genom att jämföra dessa med varandra har de bästlämpade koncept valts ut att vidareutveckla i modelleringsprogram.Under modelleringsfasen tar konstruktionsförslaget form och möjliggör en virtuellverifiering av att konstruktionen uppfyller de krav ställda i kravspecifikationen. Detfärdiga konstruktionsförslaget förflyttar instrumentet med en tangentiell kraft mha enstång och driften sker längs en valsad skena. Längs skenan monteras en kuggstång somen givare refererar till för att positionen skall kunna utläsas.

Genre analysis of research grant proposals

Feng, Haiying 11 1900 (has links)
Research grant proposals are a very important genre in many academic disciplines, and a window into which we are able to observe academic engagements and interactions. However, there has been little textual analysis of the genre and research on how successful scholars approach the writing task. Drawing on the social constructionist genre scholarship, this study collected and analyzed nine successful SSHRC (Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada) research grant proposals from nine professors in the field of education at a Canadian university. The proposals were examined in terms of three important textual features: generic structure, referential behavior, hedges and boosters. Semi-structured discourse-based interviews with the nine professors as insider informants were also conducted. The main findings of the study include the following: (1) A three-move scheme was developed in this study as reflecting the generic structure of research grant proposal summaries. In analyzing the main text of research grant proposals, I first recognized the ICMC pattern (Introduction-Context-Methodology-Communication of Results) as the overall structure; ten moves as the constitutive functional components were then identified under this pattern. (2) Non-integral (where the name of the cited author does not appear in the actual citing sentence), non-reporting (where no reporting verb such as show, establish, suggest is employed to introduce the cited work), and generalization (where the proposition is attributed to two or more sources) forms of citations were found to be predominantly used in the research grant proposals. Self-citation was also used with a high frequency in this genre. 3) The use of boosters was found to exceed the use of hedges, and the distribution of hedges and boosters were found uneven across the rhetorical sections. Interviews with the nine professors further reveal how communicative purposes, institutional practice, and reader-writer relationship co-constructed the format as well as the stylistic features of grant writing. The study provides genre analysts as well as novice grant writers some useful insights into the research grant proposal writing.

Best practices in grant writing at small colleges

Chapman, Brent S. January 2007 (has links)
This study surveyed grant writers at independent small colleges in Indiana and bordering states to discover their typical processes, personnel management, and whether these colleges encouraged effective grantsmanship. Data were analyzed with descriptive statistics reported as percentages, frequencies, and means.Conclusions include the following:Over five-sixths of respondents had additional duties. The vast majority said grant writing time varies daily due to these other tasks. As a median, writers with dual or more duties devoted 33% of their time to grant writing.Over three-fourths were not required to attend introductory training. While most pursued training classes, superiors seemed to be nonchalant about their professional development. Self motivated study, grant writing associations, and mentors were major factors for growth in grant writing skills.Around 90% of presidents and 85% of advancement vice presidents met grantors. Just over half of other superiors and a plurality of other senior advancement personnel cultivated grantors.Over three-fourths helped faculty with proposals. This informal quality control involved editing, writing, and teaching faculty how to write proposals. Just over half the colleges used formal quality control. About two-thirds have internal permission systems to prevent embarrassments, so one-third cannot prevent disasters or track proposal success, failure, or origin. Colleges seemed complacent about liability since less than half required approval from an Institutional Review Board for proposals with human subjects.About half felt their colleges succeeded with grants. Actual results were decidedly mixed. Deciding factors were income, faculty engagement, and external and internal relationships. Many colleges seemed to lack easily accessible grant records. Having dual or more duties could hinder but did not prevent success.Over two-thirds contacted donors. About half who cultivated increased success rates or gained profitable insights. Most of the others tacitly implied increased success. The top three overall grant winners all cultivated. Respondents saw cultivating as good, but viewed skillful writing as crucial.Other attributes such as religious affiliation, enrollment, minority percentages, etc. seemed not to affect success.Results cannot be completely generalized, but descriptive data and inferred conclusions should assist all small-college grant writers. / Department of Educational Studies

A atuação de professores de acordo com as orientações da Proposta Curricular de Química do Estado de São Paulo /

Mininel, Silvana Márcia Ximenes January 2009 (has links)
Resumo: O presente trabalho resulta de uma pesquisa realizada no período letivo de 2008, junto a um grupo de professores de Química (29 ao todo) e alunos pertencentes a 03 Escolas da Rede Estadual de Ensino de Fernandópolis, a partir de acompanhamento in loco. Nosso intuito principal foi analisar a repercussão da implementação de atividades de Química sugeridas na Nova Proposta Curricular pelo denominado Caderno do Professor frente a professores e alunos. O conteúdo programático no Caderno do Professor está organizado por bimestres letivos. O foco da investigação foi direcionado para investigação em relação a atuação dos professores e o aprendizado de conceitos químicos pelos alunos a partir desse novo contexto. Buscamos verificar a atuação dos professores em sala de aula e procuramos nos manter atentos para a mudança no processo de re-elaboração de sua prática. Por intermédio da análise das respostas dos questionários investigativos propostos, visitas às escolas (HTPCs e salas de aula) e cursos de formação ("Rede Aprende com a Rede"), procurou-se verificar eventuais obstáculos conceituais/epistemológicos que pudessem, muitas vezes, atravancar o processo tanto para os alunos como para os docentes. Um dos fatores apontados como um entrave do processo foi o fato dos alunos não terem disponíveis as atividades do material instrucional, uma vez que somente os professores receberam o material com as instruções. A reprodução era feita via xerox, porém encarecia muito para os docentes. Além disso, os recursos materiais se constituíram num entrave, uma vez que os professores alegam não realizarem grande parte das atividades práticas por conta de não encontrarem disponíveis os reagentes e vidrarias necessários. Alguns professores atestam promover adaptações, trabalhando com materiais alternativos. O tempo estimado para desenvolvimento ...

Our primary purpose was to investigate the implementation of the activities suggested by the booklet called Professor tied to conceptions of teaching of Proposed Curriculum implemented in the Network Journal of Education of the State of São Paulo. The program content in terms of the teacher is organized by school marking periods. The focus of research was directed to research on the performance of teachers and learning of chemical concepts by students from the new context. We verify the performance of teachers in the classroom and trying to keep alert to the change in the process of re-development of their practice. Through the analysis of responses from questionnaires proposed research, visits to schools (HTPCs and classrooms) and training courses ( "Network Learns the Network"), sought to verify any obstacles conceptual / epistemological they could often hinder the process both for students and for teachers. It seems clear that the truncation on the implementation of new instructional material is closely related to the attitude of teachers regarding not change aspects of their practice and fail to incorporate the concepts of the new. It therefore required an attitudinal change not always easy to involved with the teaching-learning process. One of the factors mentioned as a barrier of the process was the fact that students do not have available the activities of the instructional material, since only the teachers received the material with the instructions. The reproduction was made by Xerox, but very expensive for the teachers. Moreover, the material resources are a drawback, since the teachers claim not make much of practical activities ...
