Title          
 Decline of the Tip-Jet 
 
Abstract
 One way to power a helicopter rotor is to blow air through the rotor tip. Such helicopters are known as tip-jets and have the potential to be lighter and simpler than conventional helicopters. Tip-jets were widely studied in the 1950s but have not seen production due to low efficiency and very high noise levels. However, based on historical data, a compound configuration which uses tip-jet power only during vertical take-off and landing, and then transitions to an autogiro mode using a propeller for forward thrust has the potential to provide fast, efficient, and reliable flight characteristics, while minimizing noise levels to those encountered in conventional rotorcraft.

Title          
 Technical Report 
 
Abstract
 Refurbishment, also referred to as renovation is the process of renewing or restoring a building to a new or former condition and consists of major or minor repair and maintenance works. The purpose of this paper is to put forward a proposal document for total refurbishment scheme of Salvation Army citadel building in Sheffield, UK to modern day standard. The report is divided into eight sections to analyse, review and recommend an appropriate procurement strategy and contract form for the historic building. It discusses the various procurement strategy methods and legal forms of contract and recommends the one which is most appropriate for the proposed project. The estimated costs for refurbishment, value engineering methods, suitable form of tender documents and top ten risks that can affect the success of the project are also reviewed.

Abstract
 Various researches have tried to determine the factors that are responsible for a successful project. The purpose of this paper is to explore the critical factors affecting project performance and develop a framework for measuring success of construction projects. In this paper, a set of key performance indicators (KPIs), namely planning and control, procurement, time, cost, quality and environmental performance are identified as crucial to project performance amongst many others. The importance and the limitations of the suggested KPIs are discussed. The validity of the proposed KPIs is also tested by three case studies. Recommended solutions targeting each area of concern from lessons learnt in the case studies provide a basis for improved project management for large scale projects. With the development of KPIs, a benchmark for measuring the performance of a construction project can be set.

 Value Management 
 
Abstract
 This report aims to provide an integrated approach towards Value methodology, Value standard and function analysis for improving project delivery. Value Methodology is commonly used under the names of Value Analysis (VA), Value Engineering (VE) and Value Management (VM). This report provides a historical background of Value Management and identifies the underlying concept of how value and risk management relate to each other. It also provides an overview of specific value methods and tools

Abstract
 This paper will focus on STEM education at the undergraduate level, pipeline issues related to retention in such programs and subsequent post-baccalaureate retention issues in graduate school and employment, and finally take a look at the challenges of balancing the technical content of a STEM degree with general education requirements and the espousal of civic duties. The central piece of legislation around which the examination of STEM trends will take place is the 2002 Undergraduate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Improvement ACT, also referred to as the Undergraduate STEM Improvement Act, or for the purposes of brevity USTEMIA. The goal of this paper is to review this specific piece of legislation and draw a relationship between it and other literature on STEM education in order to isolate and analyze language in the policy that promotes the economization of education while potentially overlooking the need to also preserve and promote the civic components of STEM education. This analysis will not purport that any intentional inattention to civic values has been perpetrated, rather it will explore the potential tensions which could arise should the preservation of democratic and civic components of STEM fo...

Title          
  
 
Abstract
 In the 1920s, mass culture in Germany came to be broadly described as Girlkultur, which can be translated as "Girl Culture". This was largely characterized by lavish shows known as revues, with themes usually involving women and often inspired by a curiosity of foreign lands. The article also explores how this culture was shaped and driven by rapid industrialization and the emergence of a new urban lifestyle.

 Primitivism in Paul Gauguin's Where Do We Com... 
 
Abstract
 This paper first explains how Paul Guaguin was a modernist and then explores the primitivistic aspects of his masterpiece D'où Venons Nous? Que Sommes Nous? Où Allons Nous? (Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?, 1898) . The painting portrays a series of Tahitian women progressing through various stages of life. It is also rich with symbols such as idols and animals - all these features support the argument for primitivism as explained in the paper.
