Learn how to apply cutting-edge knowledge of aeroacoustics in a simple and effective way. After taking this course you will be able to reliably measure noise in a variety of mechanical systems and develop noise reduction strategies to improve their aerodynamic design and performance.

Over the last few years, the field of aeroacoustics has developed rapidly in finding solutions for reducing noise from aircraft, engines, ventilation systems and wind turbines. However, finding the right balance between achieving maximum performance (of mechanical systems such as airplanes, cars, drones, etc.) and lowering their noise output to comply with noise regulations, and ensure people's comfort and health, is a complicated task....

Wind turbines involve many technical aspects: rotor blades, gearboxes, generators, control systems, etc. These are based on many physical disciplines, such as dynamics, statics, aerodynamics, and electricity. Anyone who wants to apply their scientific or engineering skills to wind turbines should have an overview of the technology with which they interact. This course provides such an overview and helps you understand how the various components of a wind energy system act together. This course gives students an overview of the multidisciplinary aspects of wind turbines without too much detailed study of the literature of all these aspects. It will explain the relevant technologies at a similarly accessible level.... [-]

REACH and OSH legislations are aiming at the same goal: safety, health and wellbeing of a worker handling chemical substances at work. Terminology and the overall language used within these legislative frameworks differ from each other. At an average European workplace the personnel handling REACH issues or CAD issues may be different. Registrant and a downstream user may have difficulties in communication. In addition to the practical issues causing discrepancies, in a broader perspective, also more profound differences in the philosophy of the two sets of legislation can be pointed out. This has to be understood in order to guarantee proper implementation. A good example of this is setting the European OELs vs. DNELs.... [-]

GCSE Mathematics is a key requirement for many job roles as it demonstrates an understanding of numbers and an ability to work with them. This distance learning course is designed to help students progress through to their exams and it places great emphasis on "doing mathematics" and relating this wherever possible, to everyday life. Certain techniques and formulae need to be learnt, but the emphasis on "doing" means that you should work carefully through all the examples and exercises in order to be able to solve problems effectively.

The Maths GCSE distance learning course gently guides the student through basic mathematical skills, progressing onto more advanced material as the student's skills and abilities develop. A reasonable level of proficiency in arithmetical skills is assumed.... [-]
