  1. Working safely in engineering - regulations

    Provision and use of work equipment regulation 2002 – This legislation covers the training and safety of machines. Personal protective equipment 2002 – this legislation is the employer’s responsibility to provide appropriate PPE for any task that needs to be carried out. If all these legislation aren’t followed the individual can face prison as it is negligent and companies can be fined or even closed down. 2. The specific regulations and safe working regulations and procedures which apply to my work activities are electricity at work regulation 1989, Provision and use of work equipment regulation 2002.

  2. Final Control Element. FCE may be referred as actuator such as valve, gate, motor or relay. It enables an operator of a plant to achieve a desired process variable

    The most common FCE in industrial control system is control valve which is used to control fluid flow in pipeline. In petrochemical industry, control valve has known on its well performance in adjust the flow of the fluid in the production process. Energy costs is the major operating expense in petrochemical plants, so, poor valve control can lead to low plant profits. Therefore, valves such as gate valve with electric actuator and that with manual actuator, gate valve with pneumatic membrane actuator and pressure relief valve play an important role in ensure the optimum process conditions is achieved during the benzene distillation.

  3. The Production of PVC and Environmental Concerns

    For example, the ignition temperature of PVC is as high as 455°C, and is a material with less risk for fire incidents since it is not ignited easily. Furthermore, the heat released in burning is considerably lower with PVC, when compared with those for PE and PP. PVC therefore contributes much less to spreading fire to nearby materials even while burning. Durability Under normal conditions of use, the factor most strongly influencing the durability of a material is resistance to oxidation by atmospheric oxygen.

"A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools." - Douglas Adams

If you want to learn about physics and use it to solve real-world problems, a university degree in engineering might be for you. Engineering is a very diverse discipline: there are mechanical engineers, chemical engineers, and computer engineers, to name just a few. So whether you want to design soaring bridges, sleek airplanes, or efficient sewer systems, there's bound to be an area of engineering to suit you.

If you already have a solid foundation for the scientific portion of the coursework, but you need some support for writing lab reports and papers, look no further than Marked by Teachers' collection of student-submitted and teacher-annotated engineering essays. Study the collection to get inspiration, and to gather tips for good writing. Before long, you'll know how to plan and construct essays to the highest standard.

Engineering students can go on to research or practice within the field, or they might leave to pursue careers in other areas, includingbusiness,teaching, and finance.


Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
