Text analysis in engineering education

Textual data contains a large amount of embedded information. This text information is easily extracted by humans, but is difficult for machines to interpret. Using various textual analysis methods some information can be drawn out from pieces of text. An example includes finding the confidence in student-written answers.

The cosmic star formation history measured from Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) data

The cosmic star formation history (SFH) describes how the rate of star formation in the universe has evolved. This has been measured with increasing precision in recent decades. Using highly sensitive radio detections, this cosmic star formation history can be determined to the highest level of precision yet.The Evolutionary Map of the Universe (EMU) radio survey will measure up to 30 million radio sources in the coming few years. We estimate half of these will arise from star formations.Using the …

The evolution of dust obscuration in galaxies

Dust in galaxies is ubiquitous. It arises from the end stages of stellar evolution, with heavy elements formed over a star's lifetime being distributed throughout a parent galaxy as the star goes supernova.There are numerous approaches to measuring dust obscuration in galaxies. These approaches show a broad trend toward heavier obscuration in galaxies that support higher levels of star formation. However, there is relatively little understanding for why this relationship exists.By analysing the properties of galaxies in the Galaxy And …

Comparison of output from collocated solar systems of different technology

Solar panel efficiency is calculated using standardised testing conditions, allowing like-for-like comparison of systems under the same conditions. However, data collected over a three year period from two collocated solar systems of different technologies are showing unexpected results. The most efficient system's yearly output is comparatively lower. Initial data analysis explains some differences from the operational conditions, but further investigation is required.
