Abstract 5: Physics “Hydrogen Production Using Solar Energy” Jeremiah F. Wilson, Sesha S. Srinivasan, Bria M. Moore, Lamont Henderson, Sammie Ely III, P. C. Sharma
The objective of this project is to create clean fuel for transportation using hydrogen powered by solar energy. Hydrogen has been generated by solar photovoltaic (PV) array and then collected for data analysis to demonstrate efficiency of the hydrogen production in all the steps of the experiment. The hydrogen produced from the electrolysis process was either stored in a metal hydride canister or directly fed into Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell to generate electricity. A hydrogen fuel cell remote control car has successfully designed, and demonstrates at least one hour operation per hydrogen charging at room temperature.
Abstract 5: Physics "Do cathedral glasses flow?" Edgar Dutra Zanotto. Am. J. Phys. 66, 392 (1998)
A general belief among members of the scientific community is that glass articles can be bent irreversibly and that they flow at ambient temperature. This myth is mostly based on widespread stories that stained-glass windows of medieval cathedrals are thicker in the lower parts. In this paper I estimate the time periods required for glass to flow and deform at ordinary temperatures, using calculated viscosity curves for several modern and ancient glass compositions. The conclusion is that window glasses may flow at ambient temperature only over incredibly long times, which exceed the limits of human history.
Abstract 6: History “Writing Art’s Prehistory” Nicholas Chare (Department of History of Art and Architecture, University of Reading) /part of the abstract/
My project examines the difficulties involved in describing, interpreting, and researching Palaeolithic and Neolithic art. The artworks I consider were created before the advent of writing (in the narrow sense of the term). There are therefore no written records, no contracts, inventories, or letters, no ancient archived documents, available to assist art historians in their efforts to make sense of them. There are only accounts and interpretations, frequently highly differentiated in outlook, offered much later. The approaches commonly adopted in these explanations, which will be summarised, are also often too focussed on predetermined questions relating to subjects such as representation and style, or are too directed towards expressing purely visual qualities in the works under consideration….
Abstract 7: Literature Daniel P. Jaeckle, "Imaging Social Languages in Marvell's The Last Instructions."
In “The Last Instructions to a Painter” Marvell frequently satirizes the powerful of his society by creating images of the languages that they speak. The poem thus lends itself to analysis in terms of the descriptive categories that Bakhtin has developed for the novel. The Last Instructions uses what Bakhtin calls hybridization, parodic stylization, parody, stylization, and variation to place the social languages to be satirized in opposition to the language of the persona. As a result, Marvell exposes both the linguistic habits by means of which those in power delude themselves and others, and the poverty of the received languages of praise in light of the moral decay of his society.
