Educators, government bodies and employers have acknowledged the need for modern learners to acquire 21st century skills using information and communication technologies, to personalise student learning. Students need broader skills than the 3Rs (reading, writing and arithmetic) to operate in the 21st century. These broader skills known as the 4Cs include:(More)
The interface area in laser cladding, microstructures and mechanical properties of which determine the structural integrity of the laser-deposited coating, consists of two distinctive zones: the dilution and heataffected zones (HAZs). The dilution region is the region where melted substrate forms a mixture with coating material and possesses microstructure(More)
BACKGROUND Internal fixation with dynamic hip screw is a choice of treatment for hip fractures to stabilize a femoral fracture. Choosing the proper implant and its material has a great effect on the healing process and failure prevention. The purpose of this analysis was to assess biomechanical behavior of dynamic hip screw with two different materials(More)
Experimental learning, traditionally conducted in on-campus laboratory venues, is the cornerstone of science and engineering education. To satisfy online student and accreditation requirements, the common practice has been to offer equivalent remote and/or simulated laboratory experiments in lieu of the ones delivered, face-to-face, on campus. The current(More)

The purpose of this work is to investigate the forces applied, and the resultant material deformations and stresses, on a novice windsurfer sail. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) modelling is applied to both a mast and sail of a specified size. After verification of the modelling process, the results are analysed to identify possible improvements that could be(More)
