If your project calls for additional subsystem developments, such as special-purpose sensors, mechanical components, etc. Yucca Mountain, located in Nevada, is a proposed site. Finding a Thesis Supervisor Students have the responsibility to find their own thesis supervisor, and it is best that this be done by the beginning of the senior year.
Table of Content and List of Figures and List of Tables, if appropriate List all sections and subsections with the corresponding page numbers. The first goal of my research is to explain the physical principles behind monitoring geophysical precursors.
InChinese scientists targeted the Liaoning Province as a site with potential for a large earthquake. On December 20,an earthquake warning was issued. This discussion, drawing much from overview chapters in Earthquakes, Animals and Man [Deshpande, ] and California Quake [Meyer, ], will put into perspective how accurate, or inaccurate, the named methods are and what hurdles face engineers who try to predict earthquakes.
References Clark, Raymond L. My intent is to inform these students of three methods of predicting earthquakes. References Bolt, Bruce A.
The proximity of Yucca Mountain to these volcanoes makes it possible to have a volcanic eruption pass through the spent fuel waste repository. Recommended Dates to submit to your supervisor - Spring Sections and subsections should also be numbered.
Objectives I propose to review the available literature about using Yucca Mountain as a possible repository for spent nuclear fuel. Rating Radioactive Waste Risks," Science, vol. Comment on critical design parameters and what challenges might stand in the way of accomplishing your design objectives.
Benefits of the product or process to the end customer Project objectives Project specifications tied to the project objectives and the compatibility between the specification and the available hardware. InCharles Bowman, a researcher at Los Alamos, developed a theory claiming that years of storing waste in the mountain may actually start a nuclear chain reaction and explode, similar to an atomic bomb [Taubes, ].
Suggested Outline Executive Summary: This document is largely based on several documents used at various times by Professor Peter Jackson and other faculty and staff in the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering and other departments at Cornell University.
The tasks should be linked to the objectives and the design strategy components. My proposed literature review will provide this group with an unbiased discussion of three methods for earthquake prediction. Analyzing statistical data on prior earthquakes, however, is solely a long-term prediction technique [Bolt, ].
The Appendix should be divided into sections with separate titles, and numbered. Include a cost of the project based on labor and material. In addition, there are dozens of books and articles available in the library. To avoid losing an important source of energy, a safe and economical place to keep this waste is necessary.
The Maharashtra Association for the Cultivation of Science, Delivering more pages than asked for can render the engineering proposal immediately unusable.
Who are expected end users? Justification of Proposed Review On the morning of April 18,the population of San Francisco was awakened by violent shaking and by the roar caused by the writhing and collapsing of buildings [Hodgson, ]. Also, work done at an industrial firm may be considered proprietary by the firm which would prevent the student from submitting the thesis to the Department.
This is not a bad thing but is often necessary and desirable - compared to proceeding with a plan that is not working. What will happen if the waste containers corrode and do not last as long as predicted?
In addition to monitoring geophysical precursors, there are other strategies for predicting earthquakes-in particular, analyzing statistical data on prior earthquakes.
In my review, I will relate how the three geophysical precursors relate to the five stages of an earthquake and how well this relation can be used to predict the oncoming fault rupture.
To reach this goal, I will follow the schedule presented in Figure 1. According to the Department of Energy DOEa repository for high-level radioactive waste must meet several criteria including safety, location, and economics [Roush, ]. Students who are making satisfactory progress but fail to complete the thesis by the Thesis Due Date will receive the grade "J" indicating that at least one additional unit of registration for 2.
A critical mass is an amount of fissile material, such as plutonium, containing enough mass to start a neutron chain reaction [Murray, ].
Many students develop theses from UROP projects that they have had during the junior year or summer between junior and senior years.
Drop Date Spring AA Engineering will supply the metal items. A secondary audience for the review would be non-technical readers who either live in earthquake-prone areas or are affected financially when earthquakes occur.Engineering Project Proposal A Desktop Reactor for Plasma Enhanced Growth of Carbon Nanotubes Team 23 Sponsors Professor John Hart Dr.

Important Thesis Forms, Dates, and Guidelines If you are looking for a MechE focused UROP or thesis project; go to Mechanical Engineering Thesis and UROP (M.E.T.U) opportunities In the event of a change of advisor or project, the proposal must be updated in the Undergraduate Office as soon as.
Contents: Proposal #1 Proposal #2.
Proposal Links: Proposals Proposal Request Proposal Checklist UER. Before an article, report, or brief is accepted into the Undergraduate Engineering Review, the author must first submit a proposal that specifies the importance of the research, the scope and limitations of the research, and the.
An engineering proposal needs to accurately define the project scope. Because confusion related to the project scope is the leading cause of project failure (or problems), it is imperative that the scope be defined as accurately as possible so that issues do not arise.
Sample Project Proposal Following is a sample project proposal that matches the fields required for submission. Your proposal can be as technical as this one, or more general. ENGINEERING PROPOSAL/AGREEMENT Page 1 of 5 Engineering services other than mechanical, electrical, and plumbing.
