1. Presentation Guide for Math 319, 419, 592, and 560 Prof. Andrew Ross

2. Starters • Know your audience: • Fellow students and your professor • Know your time limit: 5 minutes? 10? • Groups get same total time as non-group. • About one slide per minute, • Not including title slide • Not including appendices • Practice twice to meet your time limit.

3. Pictures, Words • Use slides for pictures (1 pic = 1k words) • Flowcharts • Examples of data • Graphs • Pleasing colors: no red-on-blue, etc. • No clip art, please! • No fancy slide transitions! • Don’t read from slides! • Practice twice to know what you’ll say. • Font: readable from 8ft on your laptop screen. • Including labels on graphs!

4. A typical outline • Title slide: title, author(s), date • Intro slide: describe the problem • Data slide: show example data • Model slide: what kind of math analysis? • Results slide(s): often graphs • Conclusion slide • Appendix slides: backup to help answer questions. If no relevant questions, don’t show these slides.

5. Consider this next slide • What would you decide to do after reading it?

6. Review of Test Data Indicates Conservativism for Tile Penetration • The existing SOFI on tile test data used to create Crater was reviewed along with the STS-87 Southwest Research data • Crater overpredicted penetration of tile coating significantly • Initial penetration to described by normal velocity • Varies with volume/mass of projectile (e.g., 200ft/sec for 3cu. In) • Significant energy is required for the softer SOFI particle to penetrate the relatively hard tile coating • Test results do show that it is possible at sufficient mass and velocity • Conversely, once tile is penetrated SOFI can cause significant damage • Minor variations in total energy (above penetration level) can cause significant tile damage • Flight condition is significantly outside of test database • Volume of ramp is 1920 cu in vs 3 cu in for test

7. Misc. Thoughts • Don’t point at the laptop screen with your finger—we can’t see what you’re pointing to. • No handouts needed. • Audience: Ask friendly questions • no deliberate stumpers • If someone asks a question, repeat it aloud if you think others didn’t hear.
