1 00:00:11,040 --> 00:00:16,160 Alright so, the basic outline for today's class is connecting some engineering 2 00:00:16,160 --> 00:00:20,820 ideas to what has already been discussed and talked about in the class so 3 00:00:20,820 --> 00:00:24,720 there's been a lot of talk in the last couple weeks about topics such as thermal 4 00:00:24,720 --> 00:00:30,490 conductivity and heat transfer. So this actually connects back to one of 5 00:00:31,670 --> 00:00:36,840 An area that I especially focused in when I was an engineer so 6 00:00:36,840 --> 00:00:40,730 before I was a kiln engineer at a cement plant so 7 00:00:40,730 --> 00:00:46,430 a lot of my duties involves using refractory to protects the steel 8 00:00:46,430 --> 00:00:52,050 infrastructure of the process equipment that was being used so 9 00:00:52,050 --> 00:00:56,930 a lot of the info that's been provided today to the students are articles and 10 00:00:56,930 --> 00:01:02,450 things about what refractory is what it is, what it does and then four different 11 00:01:03,910 --> 00:01:06,090 Processes that use refractory. 12 00:01:07,510 --> 00:01:10,460 So each group will have a different specialization but 13 00:01:10,460 --> 00:01:15,190 they will all be talking about refractory and and what it means, so it's going to 14 00:01:15,190 --> 00:01:19,520 be connecting those old ideas of thermal conductivity and heat transfer. 15 00:01:20,810 --> 00:01:27,070 But instead of looking at these real world applications and seeing how does the, how 16 00:01:27,070 --> 00:01:33,020 does the like the clay brick refractory insulate and protect the steel. 17 00:01:34,770 --> 00:01:38,340 So hopefully it'll give some good 18 00:01:38,340 --> 00:01:42,080 insight and good connection to the real world and actual process. 19 00:01:43,880 --> 00:01:48,820 Additionally there also be a presentation aspect of it where each group will be 20 00:01:48,820 --> 00:01:53,310 responsible for building a poster and having one or 21 00:01:53,310 --> 00:01:58,250 two members present the topics just about how they 22 00:01:58,250 --> 00:02:02,540 feel refractory is important in that specific industry that they're looking at. 23 00:02:04,580 --> 00:02:10,310 And then if time permits there's also in argumentation aspects to this 24 00:02:10,310 --> 00:02:12,880 Lesson Plan where groups will look at 25 00:02:14,020 --> 00:02:16,980 How can they, if they were an engineer for 26 00:02:16,980 --> 00:02:21,260 one of these plants that is doing this process how can they 27 00:02:22,960 --> 00:02:26,110 Make a case to say the plant manager or 28 00:02:26,110 --> 00:02:29,270 the financier or whoever you know whoever has a big bucks. 29 00:02:30,590 --> 00:02:31,200 To. 30 00:02:32,460 --> 00:02:37,940 Sign off on the check to invest in this refractory so using good sound 31 00:02:37,940 --> 00:02:43,190 scientific reasoning as well as just some argumentation to 32 00:02:45,250 --> 00:02:45,750 Help 33 00:02:47,040 --> 00:02:47,880 Create a clear 34 00:02:48,970 --> 00:02:50,440 A clear point to why it's important. 35 00:02:53,440 --> 00:02:58,860 So that's, that's basically in my domain my, my area is a lot of engineering. 36 00:02:59,940 --> 00:03:02,070 So hopefully this will be a good 37 00:03:03,410 --> 00:03:03,910 A good 38 00:03:05,130 --> 00:03:05,810 Exercise. We'll see. 39 00:03:06,950 --> 00:03:09,870 And hopefully the other interns will have good feedback for me. 40 00:03:11,900 --> 00:03:17,120 So that I can help improve my ability to facilitate ant 41 00:03:19,230 --> 00:03:19,870 I think we'll be good.
