Tech paper
Insa333 Leaving Cert Technology — 21/06/16 7

Anyone have good solid notes on project management and all. I feel like this subject has got no syllabus to it. They can put up anything on the paper. Plus I can't seem to get my head around how motors work and all the other electromechanical elements - HELP!!!!!!- I'm gonna FAIL!!'

there are 5+ different areas. choose 2 and answer the questions in them 2. You have to find one of them you like / understand in the slightest...

seems like a lot but you could just wing most of it with commen sense but for the materials just look over these: The Material Properties of Fabrics, Wood(& Problems i.e. Wet rot, Dry rot, Woodoworm), Metals(incl. Mild steel, Stainless Steel,Copper, Aluminium, Brass), Plastics(incl. Types{thermoplastic, thermosetting},Examples), Polymers, Ceramics(incl. Advances{dental implants, bone structure}),Composites(Examples), Smart Materials (thermochronic and photochromic materials, self healing materials, smart fabrics). Know about why you would select a particular material. Environmental conditions on materials(Temp., Humidity, pH etc,) Economic use of materials. A follow on from this would be production (hand tools,power tools, manufacturing processes. hope this was a help :) ill leave you my email if you have any other questions kate.nihill@hotmail.com i would strongly advice doing materials.
