  1. The Poster Show Basics to get you going Prepared by Prof. Jane Davidson for the Department REU Poster Show

  2. Logistics • Poster Dimensions 3 ft x 4 ft foam core board - portrait style *Banner/Header* • Title (Minimum 48 Font ) • Student Name (Minimum 40-45 point font)

  3. Outline of a poster or talk Problem Explain the problem so that someone outside your field could understand it. Provide Motivation and Objective How did you solve the problem? Is it innovative? Is it realistic? Can the audience understand? Approach What happened? Put results in context. Use visual presentation style Results Emphasize your contribution Has humanity benefited? What future work is needed? Conclusions Acknowledge Credit your contributors

  4. Two Key Components of a Poster Style Content

  5. Style

  6. 1 2 3 4 5 6 Do’s • Keep the title short, snappy and on-target • Break the information into chunks • Arrange the material in logical sequence • use left-to-right or up-down

  7. Use color to add emphasis and clarity • Select 1 to 4 colors • Use bright colors for important text • Use color to group sections • Mount individual sheets on colored paper • Make sure color does not make the text impossible to read • Primary colors are usually too harsh

  8. Use eye-catching graphics • Write a one sentence legend for each graphic • Use color and large fonts (20 to 40 pt) • Make sure the graphics are directly related to the text • Cartoons are sometimes better than photographs • Readable graphs and tables • Make summary points to go with graphs

  9. Keep text to a minimum • Use easy to read font’s – Times Roman, Century Schoolbook, Palatino (serif fonts) • Avoid using all CAPS • Resist the temptation to overload the poster – leave some “white” space • Include an acknowledgement – give credit where it’s due • Spell check and then spell check again!

  10. How to Avoid Bulleted Lists

  11. Recommended Heat Exchanger Materials Compatibility with potable water NSF 14/61 approved Behavior in hot water or propylene glycol • Water absorption • Thermal index • Chemical resistance Material Properties & Manufacturer’s Recommendation • Cost • Tensile Strength • Creep (long term deformation) PB, PEX, High Temp Nylon

  12. Graphs and Figures

  13. Polymer Strength after aging in Hot, Chlorinated Water Strength after 300-1200 hrs in ORP=825 mV • For some polymers, hot chlorinated water significantly reduces strength. • Alternate PB formulation (with additives) shows less degradation • Loss of strength occurs very rapidly in nylon 6,6. Materials tested at U of MN FY2003

  14. Example of Unappealing SlideEnd Use in the Residential and Commercial Sectors

  15. End Use in the Residential and Commercial Sectors H2O 15% Other 13% Refrigeration 10% Lights 7% Cooling 9% Heating 46%

  16. Graph for a paper

  17. Free Convection Heat Transfer Correlations of Tubes in an Enclosure Nu = CRan Free convection in an unbounded fluid. • The presence of an enclosure enhances natural convection heat transfer. • There is no statistically significant effect of tube pitch-to-diameter ratio.

  18. thermally non-invasive structure ventilation shingles insulation structure Concepts for a Panelized Roof • Improved sandwich panels • Warm-sided panels

  19. Ventilated Panel • Allows sub-sheath ventilation • Reduces thermal bowing/required core thickness for Climate 1 • Reduces core temperature for structural stability • Reduces local buckling • Similar to mass produced steel faced panels • Design for adequate cooling • Core creep and fire safety ventilation Advantages Challenges

  20. Polymer Performance in Chlorinated Water Temperature: 82 C, Chlorine Concentration: 825 mV (5ppm chlorine) Load: no load, continuous load Test Conditions Tap water reservoir Reservoir with chorine solution Water bath Materials PB 4137, Zytel 6,6, Zytel HTN Pulleys Heater/circulator Potentiometer

  21. What will you do during a poster session? • Stand next to your poster • Prepare a 2 minute introduction to your research project • Answer questions • Be prepared to speak to people who may be well versed in your subject • Be prepared to speak to people who have little or no knowledge of your project

  22. MORE COMMENTS ON POSTERS • All figures and equations should be self explanatory. The viewer should not need to ask what is being plotted or what some symbol means. • A good poster gives the presentation of the most important features of the work and will precipitate questions from the audience out of interest.
