Using a waste factor of 8 percent, determine the number of cubic yards of concrete needed to pour the continuous footings shown in figures 11.38 and 11.39.

WBS & Risk Management
1. Prepare a “deliverable-based” WBS diagram for a Hospital with a Trauma Center and a
Parking Structure. Include a minimum of four WBS levels. Limit your answer to a single
page with a landscape orientation.
2.
Following the Risk Management Categories we discussed in the lecture, give a single
example of a specific risk in each risk category as it pertains to this hospital project.
Concrete Estimating
1.
Using a waste factor of 8 percent, determine the number of cubic yards of concrete needed
to pour the continuous footings shown in Figures 11.38 and 11.39. Assume that the wall is
centered over the footing.
2. Determine the amount of rebar needed for the continuous footings shown in Figures 11.38
and 11.39. Allow for 2 inches of cover and extend the dowels 15 inches into the wall. Add
10 percent for lap and waste to the continuous bars.
3. Determine the number of linear feet of forms needed for the continuous footings shown in
Figures 11.38 and 11.39.

Provided an answer key with a “detailed” rubric.

Create a case study of a recent unethical Biomedical event/report
1. Do a google search for research misconduct cases. You are free you find one in your area of interest (ie: devices, vs biopharmaceutical).
2. Create an assignment based on the reading you found. You must assign point values for each question in the assignment. (50 pts)
3. Provided an answer key with a “detailed” rubric. This rubric should allow a grader to grade your material fairly. (50pts)

Prompt:

Explain your plans for the Failure Analysis Paper. Include the following questions/issues in your post. These can be answered one by one in concise paragraphs, as briefly as possible without sacrificing needed detail.
Prompt:
What is the case or the recurrent case of failure you will focus on? (You can write on either a historical case or a recurrent case — you don’t have to write on both). Examples:
Recurrent/Common: I-beam fatigue, bridge piling corrosion, ground pollution in municipal waste systems, software malfunction
Historical cases: the 2020 Michigan dam failure, New Orleans levee system, Tacoma Narrows Bridge
What is at least 1 type/mode of failure about this case you will discuss? Examples: fatigue, stress fracture, program bugs, etc.
Does your field use or rely on destructive or non-destructive methods for analyzing failures?
What are some industry standards (IEEE, ASTM, ISO, etc.) that pertain to your case’s failure type(s) or testing methods? (Hint: Look up standards on standards databases; or standards can be found in published reports; or, sources on a case or type of failure can lead you to look up particular standards relevant to failure type.)
Explain your ideas for at least one figure that you plan to use for the Failure Analysis Paper and why they are appropriate to that section of the paper (you can choose to include these actual figures, but this is optional).
In a separate References section in IEEE format, list at least three sources you intend to use for your Failure Analysis Paper (these can be peer-reviewed, trade, or internet sources).

Include the image in the report and identify all the features observed.

1. Watch the demonstration of specimen preparation and microscope operation procedures carefully.
2. Obtain a sample from the instructor and prepare the sample for microscopic examination following the procedure of mounting, grinding, polishing, etching, observation under a microscope, and photographing.
3. Take an image of the sample as observed under the microscope. Record important information such as sample material, processing history, and photo magnification of the sample.
4. Include the image in the report and identify all the features observed.
5. Determine the ASTM grain size using the photograph as well as grain size using intercept method. Show the measurement and calculation in the report.

Choose a common everyday failure from your own experience and write about it.

In this assignment, written in memo format, you’ll choose a fairly simple object which has failed (e.g., a USB desk fan, an umbrella, a folding chair), and do the following: describe and analyze the failure, search for standards that may apply, identify who or what may be liable for the failure, and make recommendations for preventing it.
Read “A Story of Everyday Product Failure” — it is a real case and serves as a model for the assignment, though yours doesn’t have to be this long. It also provides additional information about this exercise.
Choose a common everyday failure from your own experience and write about it.
What was the failure?
How did it happen?
What standards might the failure be associated with? Be specific — list the standard source and the standard code number.
Who do you think is ethically responsible for the failure — designers, manufacturers, marketers, end-users?
What recommendations would you make as an engineer to fix this failure or prevent it from happening again?

Many of the topics are broad and you may want to select some sub-topic, i.e. a limited area that fits under the broader umbrella of the topic as a whole.

Please select one of the attached term paper topics. Many of the topics are broad and you may want to select
some sub-topic, i.e. a limited area that fits under the broader umbrella of the topic as a whole. Alternatively,
rather than choose a topic from this list, you can pick a topic outside of this list, as long as it is related to the
course; in this case, please check with the instructor to ensure that your topic is appropriate for the course.
Please add your name and chosen topic to the sign-up sheet posted in Moodle. A topic can be chosen by more
than one person, but no collaboration is permitted. No more than 4 people can sign up for the same topic.
The following guidelines should be used:
1. The goal of the term paper is to write a concise literature review, together with a critical evaluation of the
state of knowledge and of the work reported so far, on a given topic. A possible general format of the paper
follows (feel free to use any other format if it suits your needs).
a. Introduction: General concepts, definition of the problem.
b. Literature Review: Describe, in your own words, the various approaches taken by researchers in the field,
their differences and similarities. Analyze the relative usefulness of each approach, its strengths and limitations.
c. Conclusions: Summarize the state-of-the-art, including a discussion of possible unresolved questions. If
possible, suggest future directions/approaches/studies that may be promising in advancing knowledge in this
field.
d. References and Notes.
2. The total length of the paper should not exceed 15 double-spaced typed pages (about 3,000 words), including
figures and references.
3. You are encouraged to consult additional sources if you need to clarify or expand on certain points. The
references listed are intended only as a possible starting point. They may or may not be the best for a particular
topic and you are encouraged to search for appropriate and recent papers and reviews on the topic.
4. Try not to repeat material from the papers and books. If you do, please acknowledge it.
5. Thermodynamics is a basic science and its application spans many disciplines. Most of the topics listed fall
under the headings of the physical sciences and engineering – particularly physical chemistry, chemical
engineering and chemical physics. However, ideas of thermodynamics (particularly the Second Law and
entropy) and statistical mechanics (distribution functions, fluctuation theory, Monte Carlo simulation) have
been used to try to understand other and diverse fields, and some topics from these areas have been added to the
list below. They include cosmic evolution (38), economics (42, 44, 45), artificial intelligence (43), traffic flow
(46), and the origin of life and evolution (50). Some of the published works introduce postulates or assumptions
that are in addition to the usual laws of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. In those cases you should try
to analyze critically these ideas, and try to give a balanced summary of the evidence for and against such
postulates.
Analysis and prediction of the effects of climate change involves the application of thermodynamics, fluid
mechanics, heat and mass transfer and other sciences. Thermodynamic factors are involved in the overall
energy balance, the influence of changing concentrations of greenhouse gases (particularly carbon dioxide,
methane), latent heat of vaporization (increasingly powerful hurricanes, forest fires) and melting (loss of ice
sheets, melting of icebergs), and the exponential increase of vapor pressure with rising temperature.
