ESD.33 Systems Engineering (MIT) ESD.33 Systems Engineering (MIT)

Description

Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and reliability improvement while considering the complete problem including operations, performance, test, manufacturing, cost, and schedule. This course emphasizes the links of systems engineering to fundamentals of decision theory, statistics, and optimization. The course also introduces the most current, commercially successful techniques for systems engineering.

RES.12-001 Topics in Fluid Dynamics (MIT) RES.12-001 Topics in Fluid Dynamics (MIT)

Description

This collection of three essays was developed from the author's experience teaching the course Fluid Dynamics of the Atmosphere and Ocean, offered to graduate students entering the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography. The essays are: 1. Dimensional Analysis of Models and Data Sets: Similarity Solutions and Scaling Analysis,2. A Coriolis Tutorial, and3. Lagrangian and Eulerian Representations of Fluid Flow: Kinematics and the Equations of Motion The goal of this resource is to help each student master the concepts and mathematical tools that make up the foundation of classical and geophysical fluid dynamics. These essays treat these topics in considerably greater depth than a comprehensive fluids textbook can afford, and they are accompanied by data files (MATLAB® and Fortan) that a This collection of three essays was developed from the author's experience teaching the course Fluid Dynamics of the Atmosphere and Ocean, offered to graduate students entering the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography.

11.002J Making Public Policy (MIT) 11.002J Making Public Policy (MIT)

Description

This course aims to get students thinking about politics and policy as a part of their everyday life. We treat politics as a struggle among competing advocates trying to persuade others to see the world as they do, working within a context that is structured primarily by institutions and cultural ideas. We’ll begin by developing a policymaking framework, understanding ideology, and taking a whirlwind tour of the American political system. Then, we’ll examine six policy issues in depth: health care, gun control, the federal budget, immigration reform, same-sex marriage, and energy and climate change.

11.002J Making Public Policy (MIT)

Description

This course aims to get students thinking about politics and policy as a part of their everyday life. We treat politics as a struggle among competing advocates trying to persuade others to see the world as they do, working within a context that is structured primarily by institutions and cultural ideas. We’ll begin by developing a policymaking framework, understanding ideology, and taking a whirlwind tour of the American political system. Then, we’ll examine six policy issues in depth: health care, gun control, the federal budget, immigration reform, same-sex marriage, and energy and climate change.

Subjects

RES.12-001 Topics in Fluid Dynamics (MIT)

Description

This collection of three essays was developed from the author's experience teaching the course Fluid Dynamics of the Atmosphere and Ocean, offered to graduate students entering the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography. The essays are: 1. Dimensional Analysis of Models and Data Sets: Similarity Solutions and Scaling Analysis,2. A Coriolis Tutorial, and3. Lagrangian and Eulerian Representations of Fluid Flow: Kinematics and the Equations of Motion The goal of this resource is to help each student master the concepts and mathematical tools that make up the foundation of classical and geophysical fluid dynamics. These essays treat these topics in considerably greater depth than a comprehensive fluids textbook can afford, and they are accompanied by data files (MATLAB® and Fortan) that a

Subjects

simple pendulum | inviscid pendulum | viscous pendulum | Reynolds number | decay rate | nonlinear projectile problem | Coriolis force | inertial forces | centrifugal force | energy budget | Lagrangian velocity | Eulerian velocity | Eulerian equations
