Abstract:One of the most frequently highlighted problems regarding online teaching reported by teachers is the time and effort required to prepare and regularly update attractive e-content. This is particularly true for multimedia content. On the other hand, the problem often reported by students is the low aesthetic value and teachers’ failure to produce materials that students deem to be aesthetically attractive. This article presents some suggestions on possible ways to control and manage the visual side of e-content.
Abstract:The paper deals with stress-strain analysis and estimation of leak tightness of wave-ring gaskets. The investigations are carried out using the simplified analytical approach. A cylindrical shell of constant mean thickness is introduced to simulate the gasket. It is assumed that the shell is simply supported at the inner surface of the seat. The influence of certain geometric and assembly parameters on the strength and leak tightness of the closure is analytically investigated. The results are presented in dimensionless variables in order to generalise the conclusions. The analytical solution is verified by FEM calculations and compared with the experimental results.
Abstract:Molybdenum was introduced into sintered austenitic stainless steels to improve their corrosion resistance. The influence of different Mo contents on the pitting corrosion resistance of AISI 304L and 316L steels in 0.1 M sodium chloride solution has been investigated. The corrosion behaviour was evaluated by potentiodynamic polarisation method. Sintered Mo-containing 304L steel is less prone to pitting corrosion in environment containing chlorides than 316L with Mo addition. The introduction of molybdenum to 304L steel resulted in an improvement of corrosion resistance. This steel exhibits the highest value of polarisation resistance as well as the lowest value of corrosion rate.
Abstract:In dynamic linear systems described by differential equations with constant parameters, the poles of the rational function (transfer function of the system) play an important role. This article attempts to expand the poles concept in a situation where the system is described by the second-order linear system with timevarying parameters. It then introduces the concept of characteristic equations and time-dependent poles.
Abstract:In dynamic linear systems described by differential equations with constant parameters, the poles of the rational function (transfer function of the system) play an important role. This article attempts to expand the poles concept in a situation where the system is described by the N-th order linear system with time-varying parameters. It then introduces the concept of characteristic equations and time-dependent poles.
Abstract:The article presents the developed, innovative model of postgraduate education in the area of fluid drive and control technology, launched in the Cracow University of Technology. The program of postgraduate studies was elaborated in accordance with the CETOP guidelines. Characteristics of education on hydraulic and pneumatic systems are presented together with the proposed model of studies and its innovative components.
Abstract:This article presents the potential for development of aviation education at Polish Universities with a focus on aircraft mechanics training certified by the Civil Aviation Authority in Warsaw and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). An engineering graduate who obtains such a licence in addition to having a diploma would have no problems with finding a suitable employment.
Abstract:This paper explains why and how to teach engineering students studying structural materials obtained from renewable sources. It describes modern approaches in the education of materials science including focussing on design strategies, sustainability and the use of modern educational tools.
Abstract:The aim of the article is to analyse the possibility of using multi-criteria methods for support in planning the postgraduate program, their implementation and their evaluation. Multi-criteria methods, which are used to support the decision-making process, are a response to the complexity of contemporary problems, including uncertainty, incomplete data and changing environment. One of these issues is matching the postgraduate program to the current requirements of potential students. The research methods used in this article are a critical analysis of literary sources and a case study of the ‘PIT Mobile postgraduate studies in collaboration with industry’ project, financed by the European Social Fund.
