Rhode Island College Anchor Notes The Official Newsletter of Rhode Island College Intercollegiate Athletics www.ric.edu/athletics Vol. IV No. 4 Providence, Rhode Island Spring/Summer Update June, 2003 The Murray Center dedication ceremony Wednesday, Apr. 16, 2003 The home to the intercollegiate athletic program was official ly named The Murray Center at a ceremony held in the Bourget Foyer on Wednesday, Apr. 16. The building was named to honor two alumnae sisters, Catherine T. Murray ’34, M.Ed ’51 and the late Mary F. Murray ’33, and their commitment to education. Catherine T. Murray was on hand to dedicate the building and took part in the unveiling of a commemorative plaque in the foyer (see photo below) along with her nephew Terry Murray and his wife Suzanne, as well as Rhode Island College President John Nazarian ’54 . Over 75 guests attended the ceremony and stayed to enjoy lunch in The Murray Center’s Kleniewski-Foley Hall of Fame Lobby located on the second floor. The Murray family was presented with a framed copy of the Rhode Island Legislative Acts, signed into law by Governor Donald Carcieri, and all guests received commemorative t-shirts and baseball caps. “The gift given by the Murray Family in naming the building is an integral part of our capital campaign fundraising goal of which 1.25 million will be committed to establishing a solid foun dation for an athletic endowment,” says Director of Intercollegiate Athletics, Intramurals and Recreation Donald E. Tencher. “The...
PERFOMANCE BOOST The Freescale* MPXV4115V pressure sensor is the ideal part for automotive vacuum sensing needs such as those found in the brake booster application. Prepared by Marc Osajda Automotive Sensor Marketing Motorola – Toulouse, France Advanced braking systems are becoming increasingly common in today’s automobiles. Higher level systems and technology now being used in “brake assist systems” (BAS) in several European cars, have made it possible for more efficient and intelligent braking systems. A key functional application block found in these braking systems that has advanced with this technology surge, is the vacuum brake booster function. Here are a few driving factors behind the need and use of the brake booster, which helps ensure a safer braking system. Independent Systems: In current gasoline engine cars, the engine’s intake manifold generates the vacuum for the brake booster. This system works fine with one exception. The amount of vacuum in the brake booster is unknown by the braking system. Thus the amount of amplification is also unknown. If heavy braking is needed, there is no possibility for the brake system to interact with the intake manifold if additional amplification is required. The manufacturer’s interest for having the vacuum generated by an auxiliary vacuum pump is that the brake system can manage the amount of vacuum as required, on demand. This in turns gives it the ability to perform amplification on its own, giving it complete independent from the engine’s operating condition. The auxiliary pump is also able to provide higher amounts of vacuum whenever necessary. In situations calling for heavy braking, the pressure will naturally decrease in the brake booster, also causing a decrease in the amplification during braking. With an external pump it is possible to maintain, or even increase the amplification during a heavy braking phase. Smart Safety: Wheel blocking due to high-braking force is controlled by the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS). However, it has been observed that in many cases, drivers do not...
Introduction Everybody knows that when you press your foot on the brake pedal the vehicle is supposed to stop. But how does the pressure from your foot get to the wheels with enough force to stop a heavy vehicle? In the following sections, we will study the systems and components required to allow brakes to work effectively. Course Objectives Upon completion of this course, technicians should understand and be able to apply their knowledge of: • • • • • • • • • • • • Brake functions and components Split hydraulic systems Master cylinder operations Balance control systems Power brake booster systems Disc brake operation Micrometer reading Drum brake operation Brake fluids Brake bleeding operations Brake lines and hoses Basic diagnosis Using the Job Sheets As you proceed through the online module, on some pages you will find links that will open a window with a printable procedure or job sheet containing hands-on lab activities based on the NATEF standards related to the content you are studying. When you come upon a procedure or job sheet link, click on it and print the job sheet for completion in the shop. See your instructor for guidance in completing the job sheets. Some jobs sheets will require supplemental materials such as a vehicle service manual, equipment manual, or other references. Brake System Functions Automotive brakes are designed to slow and stop a vehicle by transforming kinetic (motion) energy into heat energy. As the brake linings contact the drums/rotors they create friction which produces the heat energy. The intensity of the heat is proportional to the vehicle speed, the weight of the vehicle, and the quickness of the stop. Faster speeds, heavier vehicles, and quicker stops equal more heat. Automotive brake systems can be broken down into several different sub-systems (fig. 1): • Apply system • Boost system • Hydraulic system • Wheel brakes • Balance control system • Warning system (fig. 1) Base Brake Systems .
Written by Donald P. Hessenaur As aircraft engine prices continue to rise beyond the reach of most who would like to build and fly their own aircraft, many are turning to alternate power sources. This is not a new phenomenon. From the Wright brothers on, many have designed, built or converted engines to aircraft use. At one time or another engines have been used from automobiles, motorcycles, outboard motors and even snowmobiles, with varying degrees of success or failure. AUTO ENGINE CONVERSIONS Today many automotive engine conversions are appearing on the aviation scene. They are definitely a viable alternative. The automotive engine today is very advanced technically and relatively low in cost when compared to Lycomings and/or Continentals. Unfortunately, automotive engines are designed and optimized for the automobile and not for aircraft. Generally auto engines operate at a much higher RPM. The torsional vibration characteristics of a given engine, connected to a transmission, drive train and wheels, are quite different from that of the same engine, connected to an aircraft propeller. The damping action of the tires on the road and the inertia effects of the mass of the automobile are not even close to the damping/inertia effects of a propeller turning in air.
SAMPLE RESUME TEMPLATE We have given you an outline of a sample resume as a GUIDE ONLY. It is intended to be read in conjunction with the Careers Centre handout on ‘Resume Writing’ which can be downloaded from the Careers Centre web site. In order to MAKE YOUR APPLICATION COMPETITIVE AND UNIQUE, you should take into account your own experience and background and compile your resume in a way that you feel best reflects those. This may mean that the length of your resume varies. YOU MAY FIND THAT YOU NEED TO: • change the order of the headings • change the wording of the headings • leave some sections out that are not relevant to you or • add new sections (such as “Major Projects” or “Awards and Achievements” or “Leadership”) to capture certain experiences you have had. Also, bear in mind that employers will sometimes state what they want in a resume for a specific job application. They might specify length of resume, content required, number and type of referees required etc. In this instance, you should ALWAYS MEET THE EMPLOYER’S REQUIREMENTS for the specific job application.
