If you conduct a scientific experiment or undertake a piece of research, you’ll usually need to write up a corresponding project or lab report, to summarize the objective of your task, the methods you followed, the results you obtained, and the conclusions you drew from your work. Here we provide a sample of great templates for producing such reports, which include layout guidelines to help guide you through the process.

Forced Van Der Pol's Equation
This work is going to analyze the Forced Van Der Pol's Equation which is used to analyze the electric circuit. In 1927, Balthasar Van Der Pol observed the stable oscillation and heard some irregular noise in vacuum tube circuit. He then proposed the Forced Van Der Pol's Equation to analyze the circuit and suggested the concept of limit cycle and Chaos to explain his observation. In this work, We would like to analyze behavior of the model by observing the phase space, time series, bifurcation diagram and power spectrum. Those points in the figures are calculated by Runge-Kutta Method with the aid of MATLAB. For a better understanding, the RLC circuit, which is a electric circuit consisting the a resistor, an inductor and a capacitor, will be used as an example for explaining the properties. Apart from electric circuit, the Forced Van Der Pol's Equation can be applied to dynamic systems in different aspect, such as the artificial heart, economic market and so on. Therefore, we suggest this work to all students since the Forced Van Der Pol's Equation can be applied to many majors, like Mathematics, Physics, Economics, Sociology, Biology, Engineering and so on.

The Entity Registry System. From Concept to Deployment
The entity registry system (ERS) is a decentralized entity registry that can be used to replace the Web as a platform for publishing linked data when the latter is not available. In developing countries, where off-line is the default mode of operation, centralized linked data solutions fail to address the needs of the communities. Although the features are mostly completed, the system is not yet ready for deployment. This project aims to provide extensive tests and scalability investigations that would make it ready for a real scenario.
What is the maximum altitude reached by a Superpressure balloon?Can we control the balloons altitude with an air pump?
A detailed report of findings on the altitudes which can be reached by super pressure balloons and how various factors and considerations affect this. Superpressure balloons are deployed and researched by various organisations including NASA, to solve technical limitations such as cell tower coverage as well as advancing fields of research. Balloons are used in planetary exploration, and weather prediction to teaching primary school physics. The versatile yet simple aerostat has been a valuable tool in many areas of engineering and their altitude ceiling is of great scientific interest. To solve the problem without the ability to physically reproduce the scenario, required mathematical models to be created as a means of simulating the effects of real world physics. A degree great enough to output an accurate and hence useful result without becoming too complex to be computable is the fine balance attempted to be created by this paper.

Qualificação - Reconhecimento de Cenários baseado nas Localizações dos Fornecedores do Governo Federal
In most corruption scandals, the use of front companies for money laundering is almost ubiquitous. This work proposes to apply image classification to detect such organizations, through the use of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN), namely the AlexNet architecture. The images are obtained by address search in Google Street View API, and the resulting classification will be further used along with other features to detect front com- panies in order to help the auditors from the Ministry of Transparency and Office of the Comptroller General (CGU, in Portuguese). To this moment, we applied classification to almost 15 thousand suppliers scenes with active contracts with the Brazilian Government until September 2016, obtained through data matching between the Government Purchases database and the Brazilian Federal Revenue Office database (more recent scenes should be added as this work progresses). Preliminary results with a pre-trained AlexNet CNN show the need for developing new scene classes more suited to the Brazilian context. In order to do this, we propose to apply clustering algorithms in features extracted from the last fully-connected layer of this net. The classes obtained will be used to fine-tune the AlexNet CNN for future classification, through the use of training from scratch or fine tuning techniques.

Robert Dahl – The Case
This paper is describing a short view on the given case – You are in a modern national state where you have the democratic power to suggest/ put forward that “democracy and equality”, OR “democracy and freedom” are the highest values and norms in your society (the group chooses which of the two alternatives you want to answer on). What would your arguments and examples be to people of your country?

Oscillation Lab
The purpose of this lab was to illustrate the validity of the law of conservation of energy along with the determination of the spring constant of a given spring. For the first part the spring constantk was to be found from a given spring. Through the suspension of various known metal masses on a vertically suspended spring, the spring constant was determined. Two methods were used: the algebraic rearrangement of Hooke's Law and a slope analysis of a linear regression on a Force (N) against Stretch Length (m) scatter plot. The spring constant k was determined to be 26.438 ± 1.063. For the second part of the lab, the aim was to validate the law of conservation of energy through the oscillation of a vertically suspended spring. Data was collected using a Vernier Motion Detector 2 machine and the various energies (kinetic energy, gravitational potential energy and spring potential energy) were collected and summed up. The sum of these energies yielded a fairly constant energy total (2.287 J ± 0.025 J) which supports the authenticity of the law of conservation of energy. While there were some uncertainties due to the lab setup, human error and equipment error it did not affect the validity of the methods during experimentation. Overall, the spring constant k of a given spring was determined and the law of conservation of energy was validated through the calculation of total energy during a suspended mass' oscillation.
