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.

Physical Interactions of Simple Tools with JSC-1A Regolith Simulant
Physical Interactions of Simple Tools with JSC-1A Regolith Simulant
As part of the NASA IMPACT program to model mechanical interactions with bodies in space such as comets, asteroids, and other Near Earth Objects (NEOs), the Colorado School of Mines team is designing a motor stage apparatus to interact with JSC-1A regolith simulant surfaces. This initial study involved development and testing of a prototype motor stage apparatus which was used to drive three types of probes into JSC-1A surfaces while collecting force data under standard Earth atmospheric conditions. The probes used were a conical-tipped probe, a wedge-tipped probe, and an anchoring probe. Main goals of the prototype system were to acquire general force trends for each interaction, and to isolate the most important design features for a more-complex in-vacuum system. Our data revealed force interactions that were very small in magnitude—on the order of tenths of Newtons—and more complex than our simple stiff beam probe and mount model could accurately predict. Our results lead us to recommend a more complex experimental model that can accurately represent deflection in the probes while also allowing for better measurement of regolith movement near the tip of the probes. Specifically, we recommend the following design features for the in-vacuum system: a load cell capable of measuring at very low ranges (thousandths of Newtons), reliability of structural axis alignment between trials, a robust mounting system that can accommodate each different type of probe, and consistency of sample preparation between trials.

Markowitz Portfolio Optimization Theory and Application
Markowitz Portfolio Optimization Theory and Application
Suppose you have a data matrix comprised of several stock options over a set period of time. How do you choose the optimal collection of stocks such that you maximize your returns for a given level of risk? What Markowitz found was an elegant equation. What we realized rather quickly is there does not exist a closed form solution to this problem. Instead we use the tried and tested linear approximation. By transforming this problem into Matrix multiplication, we are able to quickly and (with desired accuracy) approximate the optimal solution, using only linear algebra.

Computational Intelligence assignment report
Computational Intelligence assignment report
This paper is a report of an assignment of a course Computational Intelligence. The main goal of the assignment is to apply computational intelligence techniques in a practical setting - building a controller for a race car in The Open Racing Car Simulator (TORCS) using artificial neural network and evolving that network with evolutionary algorithm techniques. Keywords: computational intelligence, car controller, artificial neural network

Measurement of the dynamic viscosity of Canola Oil using a ball drop
Measurement of the dynamic viscosity of Canola Oil using a ball drop
The viscosity of a particular fluid is an interesting parameter that plays an important role in fluid dynamics of that fluid. We chose the common household cooking item canola oil. Using a ball drop, we set out to measure viscosity at various temperatures and create a model for the viscosity of canola oil as a function of temperature, as well as an accurate measurement for viscosity at room temperature. It was found that the viscosity between 0 and 40 degrees Celsius can be approximated using an exponential function and that an estimation for viscosity at room temperature was not very difficult to obtain. The precision of this measurement was limited by uncertainty in lab equipment used to measure various quantities as well as the image analysis software we used and the limited frame-rate of our camera.

Analysis of Material Properties under Bending Load
Analysis of Material Properties under Bending Load
In this experiment, we attempt to better understand how materials properties are tested. We tested a number of simple beams of different materials under a stress. The bending of the materials allowed for us to calculate the Poisson's Ratio and elastic moduli for each material. From this, we were able to not only compare materials but also methods of measuring elasticity. Despite some error in our results, which can be explained by the scale of our measurements in relation to the stiffness of certain materials, we find both strain gauges and equations of cantilever to be appropriate measurement techniques for measuring the elastic modulus of simple beams.

Machine Teaching for Information Extraction
Machine Teaching for Information Extraction
Recent work on information extraction has suggested that fast, interactive tools can be highly effective; however, creating a usable system is challenging, and few publically available tools exist. In this paper we present IKE, a new extraction tool that performs fast, interactive bootstrapping to develop high-quality extraction patterns for targeted relations, and provides novel solutions to these usability concerns. In particular, it uses a novel query language that is expressive, easy to understand, and fast to execute - essential requirements for a practical system - and is the first interactive extraction tool to seamlessly integrate symbolic and distributional methods for search. An initial evaluation suggests that relation tables can be populated substantially faster than by manual pattern authoring or using fully automated tools, while retaining accuracy, an important step towards practical knowledge-base construction.

Alternatives in Dual Energy Radiography data analysis
Alternatives in Dual Energy Radiography data analysis
A dual energy radiography method using basis decomposition was developed, the process to do it is shown and it is compared against an alternate more direct method of analyzing the data using the logarithm of the original data, concluding that this second method does work but it is not better than basis decomposition.
