    CONTENT:

    The seminar will cover the following:

    • Why we have research papers
    • What makes a good research paper (key content and attributes)
    • How to identify your research method
    • How to ensure that the reader values your paper
    • Dealing with feedback from reviewers

    PRESENTED BY: CLINT STEELE

    Clint decided to become an engineer after reading a hot rod magazine at age 14.

    He completed a bachelor of engineering in mechanical, a master of entrepreneurship and innovation and a PhD. He has worked for Ford Australia, Cram Australia, Davey Water Products and Detekt design in engineering design and development roles. 

    He now works in academia researching and teaching engineering design methods. He has a keen interest in cooperation between industry and academia so that technical know-how can be shared with and known by all. He is also the editor of the SAE-A technical journal.

    BENEFIT TO ATTENDEES:

    At the end of the session, attendees will feel more confident in expressing their findings in a rigorous manner. This will in turn make them more able to write for publications and conferences in general. 

    This ability and confidence to note findings and communicate them in a professional/academic journal is an aspect of the professional engineer, and attendees will be one step closer to becoming an engineer who is influential within their respective community.

    STYLE OF PRESENTATION:

    The session will start with a basic run down on the characteristics of a good paper.

    The session will then move into a workshop mode to help attendees think about their paper and what they will do to progress it.

    Printed notes on what was covered, which will include references for further reading, will also be provided.

    The APV Occupant Protection Standards & Crash Test Facility Tour will provide guests with an understanding of the future priorities they will see, and be working with, as part of a holistic approach to Road Safety.

    The tour will go through:

    • The crash test facility main indoor track
    • The component laboratory
    • Crash test dummy calibration
    • Post side impact and post pole impact crashed car 
    • Example test equipment
    It will enable a behind the scenes look at world-class facilities and services available for crash testing, SRS R&D and specialist development e.g. air-bag compatible bull bars etc.
