The flow of two-phase mixtures through restrictions. is a complex phenomenon that to date has not been fully described analytically. It is an area that received a geat deal of attention because of its application to nuclear reactor technology. The majority of the work done in this area considered ideal geometries such as nozzles, orifices and straight pipes. In the area of control valves very little work has been done. Brockett & King [1] studied subcooled water. Stiles [2] looked at subcooled freon. Martinec [4] compared subcooled freon in valves with ideal geometries. Sheldon & Schuder [3) looked experimentally at airjwater mixtures through valves that resulted in a sizing procedure. Fagerlund [10] presented an analytical model that required use of the Sheldon & Schuder data to establish the behavior of valves as opposed to more ideal geometries. However, the data used was limited to a single valve travel. Fagerlund & Storer [11] have expanded this to include several valve travels that further generalizes the technique. It is the intent of this paper to summarize a practical approach to s1z1ng valves for two-phase service that may be reduced to either a graphical or calculator procedure. Discussion of Analysis A fundamental assumption in this method is that the quality remains constant between the inlet and the vena contracta. For gas-liquid flows it is obvious providing vaporization does not occur.

Changing Schools - Pupil Perspectives on Transfer to a Comprehensive (Hardcover): Lynda Measor, Peter Woods Changing Schools - Pupil Perspectives on Transfer to a Comprehensive (Hardcover)
Lynda Measor, Peter Woods
R2,091 Discovery Miles 20 910 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

Changing schools at 11 or 12+ is a critical, often traumatic event in a pupil's career. Earlier studies had looked at this transitional stage from the schools' point of view, in the light of institutional aims and objectives. Originally published in 1984, this richly detailed and readable study looks at it from the pupils' point of view: it illustrates their perceptions of the transfer, their anxieties and their experiences. The book is the result of a research project, in which children transferring from a typical middle school to a typical comprehensive in a Midlands town were observed over a period of eighteen months. The authors reveal various ways in which children adjust to a large, more complex school organisation, to new forms of discipline and authority, and new demands in school work. They emphasise the significance of teenage culture during this period, and identify an important area of interplay between school culture and sub-culture. They pay special attention to gender identities, and the ways in which these affect pupils' responses to different subjects in the curriculum. Finally, they consider the theoretical and policy implications of their survey, and make positive recommendations for improving school and classroom practice at both primary and secondary level.

R1,103 Discovery Miles 11 030 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

First published in 1977, this volume brings together a range of viewpoints, informed by reports of empirical research, which bear on the experience of school. Each chapter demonstrates the application of the 'new sociology of education' in its various guises to the world of teachers and pupils. In doing so, they exemplify the fields of investigation opened up by these theoretical developments, and also suggest directions ahead. The tensions in the articles reflect the tensions that existed in the sociology of education. By bringing them together, the aim of this volume is to contribute to a more soundly based sociology of education.

Comparative Placentation - Structures, Functions and Evolution (Paperback, 2008 ed.): Peter Wooding, Graham Burton Comparative Placentation - Structures, Functions and Evolution (Paperback, 2008 ed.)
Peter Wooding, Graham Burton
R4,090 Discovery Miles 40 900 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Science produces fascinating puzzles: why is there such a range of placental structures when other mammalian organs are so structurally uniform ? Why and how did the different placental structures evolve ? Comparative placental studies can facilitate the identification of the common factors in placental growth, differentiation and function and their relevance to possible evolutionary pathways. Comparative Placentation is the only book presenting up-to-date data illustrating the great variety of structure but uniform function of vertebrate placentas from fish to man. This information is essential for selection of suitable models to investigate particular practical problems of impaired or anomalous growth in human and animal placentation. The unique collection of the best light and electron micrographs from the last thirtyfive years which precisely illustrate the structural range in each taxon, make the book the most authoritative publication in this field and a vital source of information for anyone interested on reproductive physiology, anatomy and medicine.

A Study of a Conductive and Adaptive E-Learning Environment (Paperback): David Asirvatham, Peter Woods A Study of a Conductive and Adaptive E-Learning Environment (Paperback)

The great potential of e-learning is yet to be tapped. Most e-learning systems are designed with the concept that one-shore-fits-all. That is, the same set of learning materials are presented to all learners. This is termed as the static learning model. The learning theories clearly state that each individual learn differently. Learners have different styles of learning, different pace of learning, and different preferences. With technology, it is possible to present different learning materials to different learners based on the competency level. This is termed as adaptive learning model. This book will highlight the adaptive learning model that is able to deliver content based on the learner's competency level. It will also outline and highlight the experiments conducted. The adaptive e-learning models operate within an e-learning environment which is supported by an array of technologies. Applying the systems approach concept, it is important that a conducive e-learning environment is defined first prior to testing the adaptive models.

Creative Learning in the Primary School (Paperback, New): Bob Jeffrey, Peter Woods Creative Learning in the Primary School (Paperback, New)
Bob Jeffrey, Peter Woods
R1,250 Discovery Miles 12 500 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Creative Learning in the Primary School uses ethnographic research to consider the main features of creative teaching and learning within the context of contemporary policy reforms. In particular, the authors are interested in the clash between two oppositional discourses - creativity and performativity - and how they are resolved in creative teacher practice. The book complements previous work by these authors on creative teaching by giving more consideration to creative learning. The first section of the book explores the nature of creative teaching and learning by examining four key features: relevance, control, ownership and innovation. The authors devote a chapter to each of these aspects, outlining their properties and illustrating them with a wide range of examples, mainly from recent practice in primary schools. The second section presents some instructive examples of schools promoting creative learning, and how creative primary schools have responded to the policy reforms of recent years. The chapters focus specifically on: how pupils act as a powerful resource for creative learning for each other and for their teachers; how teachers have appropriated the reforms to enhance their creativity; and how one school has moved over a period of ten years from heavy constraint to high creativity. The blend of analysis, case-study material and implications for practice will make this book attractive to primary teachers, school managers, policy makers, teacher educators and researchers.

Researching the Art of Teaching - Ethnography for Educational Use (Paperback, New): Peter Woods Researching the Art of Teaching - Ethnography for Educational Use (Paperback, New)
Peter Woods
R1,625 Discovery Miles 16 250 Ships in 7 - 11 working days


This book is a follow-up to Inside Schools. It reviews the position of ethnography in educational research in the light of current issues and of the author's own research over the past ten years. Starting from an analysis of teaching as science and as art, Peter Woods goes on to review the general interactionist framework in which his own work is situated, and how this relates to postmodernist trends in qualitative research. The approach is illustrated through reference to the author's own personal history and research career, and his recent research on creative teaching, critical events, and his teachers reactions to school inspections. How to represent such research is a central feature, and includes a consideration of the tools used in that task and how they relate to the ethnographer's self, whatever forms of representation are selected, however, the audiences' own concerns will guide them in their interpretation of the work.
Prominent themes include:
* the person of the ethnographer in research
* the art of teaching and new ways of representing it, while not forgetting the science of teaching and of research
* research for educational use, and the uses of educational research
* collaborative work between researchers and teachers
All those involved in educational enquiry will find much of interest here, but the issues discussed are of general relevance within qualitative research. The issues covered include such matters as research purposes, research design, research careers, access, data collection, data analysis, truth criteria, the relationship between theory and research methods, writing-up, and dissemination.
Peter Woods is Professor in the School of Education at the Open University.
