Executive Summary The valve train tribology exercise was conducted to explore the parameters influencing the selection of lubricants for valve train components. The analysis entailed the examination of variation of minimum lubricant film thickness with oil grade, camshaft speed, oil temperature and change of maximum Hertz contact stress with camshaft speed. film thickness data generated several insights, including the shape and type of plots that were drawn according to the operating conditions described below, and an explanation for the ensuing behaviors.
The evolution of the fast-food industry became a culture largely because of civilization. As early as ancient Greece and Rome, inns were meant to serve people who needed food on a limited budget and time frame.

Introduction During their operation, the winds turbines are exposed to a wide variety of both the atmospheric and environmental conditions; Due to this, the blades show a varying degree of leading edge erosion. Leading edge erosion is a substantial risk to wind turbine performance and blade maintenance (Sareen, pg,1531). The attempts to investigate the effects of the leading edge erosion on the blades of the wind turbines is carried out using the Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method. Over the past few years, wind power generation has developed significantly due to its clean and renewable characteristics. The scope and the size of the modern wind turbine have emerged as a result of the need to capture the wind energy and the development of the technology. A single turbine can produce energy in the range of 8-10W with their diameter of being around 160m.

Executive Summary As a coach, it is important to know how to connect with patients to allow them feel comfortable talking about their problems during psychology sessions. In the process, the healthcare professional also increases his or her body of knowledge by evaluating the client’s social, emotional, and physical needs. This is an e-portfolio about my coaching sessions with client B when the client talked about her problems and ambitions as I tried to help her work towards being mentally and emotionally prepared. The key elements of the sessions involved understanding the patient and solving her problems using models such as the Karpmann triangle, GROW, strengthoscope, and solution-focused theories. A qualitative analysis of both the patient’s and coach’s performance is also covered. The results of the sessions showed that using theoretical models significantly improved interaction and problems-solving in mentorship sessions.
