Aluminium in Cars - Unlocking the Light-Weighting Potential
Read the Fine Print
Rating

In this brochure, the European Aluminium Association (EAA) evaluates the need for vehicle lightweighting to reduce CO2 emissions. Since the 70's aluminum has been used for some car components (radiators, cylinder heads, and bumper beams), but now has grown to the average amount of 140 kg per car produced in Europe. Aluminum castings, extrusions, forgings and sheets can now be found nearly everywhere, including in car bodies, closures, chassis, suspensions and wheels. This resource explains why, now more than ever, reducing vehicle mass is necessary and how aluminum can be used to further improve the sustainability and the safety of future generations of cars.

Case Analysis Module: Therac-25
Unrestricted Use

Rating

This module, designed for the EAC Toolkit (NSF SES 0551779) will test the Toolkit and Connexion's ability to network different online and offline sources for ethics across the curriculum. It consists of four components designed to provide students with tools for carrying out an in-depth analysis of the cases found at www.computingcases.org; it also makes substantial references to the draft manuscript of a textbook in computer ethics entitled Good Computing: A Virtue Approach to Computer Ethics. (The book will consist of the cases displayed at Computing Cases--Therac-25, Hughes Aircraft, and Machado--plus seven additional cases all developed through NSF projects DUE-9972280 and DUE 9980768.)The module presents the case abstract and timeline. It then refers students to Computing Cases where they will find the case narrative, history, and supporting documents that provide background necessary for analysis. The case abstract and timeline introduce students to the basic outlines of the case. The accompanying decision point taken from the case provides students with the necessary focus to carry out an in-depth analysis. Students respond to the decision point by working through four stages: problem specification, solution generation, solution testing, and solution implementation.
