4.5 Application coverletters
Dear Dr. Brown,
Commend the organization's reputation in a particular field
By designating ABC as my primary interest area in ASME
and having received the ABC Newsletter for quite some time, I realized
that CGFM would be a resourceful group for my professional interest
in flow measurements.
Your current project
Our institute, the
Center for Measurement Standards (CMS/ITRI), has tentatively chosen
mid October as the starting date to develop a national liquid and
gas standard flow measurement laboratory in Taiwan, R.O.C.
Laboratory development specifications
The laboratory will have the following
Oil: up to 6,000 lpm (uncertainty: +0.1-0.4% from light to heavy oil)
Water: up to 10,000 lpm (uncertainty: +0.2%)
Air: up to 7,000 SM/hr (uncertainty: +0.25%)
Once the laboratory is developed, our work will be extended into several
potential flow studies, e.g., multiphase flows, LDV, pump and fan
performance, air flow in wind tunnel and CFD related scheduled programs
at Atlanta, Georgia.
Information request for participation in related activities offered by their organization
Could you send me information on the necessary forms for this activity?
We are also interested in pursuing collaboration with your research
program, based on our mutual interests. I look forward to hearing
4.6 Training program suggestions
Dear Dr. Lin,
Previous discussion regarding training session
In our last conversation, in December, I mentioned the possibility
of arranging a short-course on Molecular Simulation. I have already
received your letter dated December 10. Thank you for your valuable
suggestions concerning the development of molecular simulation at
General theme of proposed seminar
As you previously stated, molecular simulation is an effective tool for
facilitating the identification of polymer structure and application.
I also agree that the introduction of Molecular Simulation at UCL
would stimulate a more thorough understanding, and much related research
activity in the area of polymer morphology-structure property relationships.
Background information of your laboratory's research interests The current and future topics to be undertaken
at the Polymer Division include Morphology Control Polymer Blends,
Interface/Adhesion of Thermoplastic Composite, and Polymer Additive/Processing
Aid Behavior in Polymer Matrixes. Therefore, many of our future research
activities will be related to adhesion, surface, interface and interaction
forces. The systems we would like to employ may be primarily related
to polymer blends and coation/surface treatments. I hope that through
this short training program, we can determine the systems and research
topics that need to be focused on.
Specific topics to be covered in the seminar
The following topics may be a helpful guide when determining the content
of a short training course. Of course, you should feel free to ammend
or expand any of these topics.
1. Current developments and the application of MS in Polymer research
2. Applications of co-polymer composition/structure/property (specific
topics of interest: hexamethyldiamine, adipic acid, terephthalic acid
copolymer property and structure)
3. Polyolefin (PE, PP, PS) Conformation/Properties (system of particular
interest: Metallocene Based Polymers)
4. Adhesion/Interface: Polymer Blends and Tire Cords (Nylon 6, Nylon
66, PET) in Rubber
5. Surface Treatment/Adhesion (Thin Film Formation on Polymer Surface,
i.e., Plasma, Chemical Vapor Deposition and Adhesion with Polymer
Substrates, such as PC and PMMA)
The above topics are simply for your reference. Topics #3 and #5 can
be prioritized, with #2 and #3 as the minor emphases. I hope related
fundamental concepts (Theory, Basis and Structure of MS) and the state-of-the-art
MS technology can also be included in the training curriculum.
I look forward to your response to some of these above mentioned concerns.
Making suggestions for
training curriculum. Using 4.6 as a model, write a letter suggesting
the curriculum for an upcoming training session. Be sure to adhere
to the following guidelines: Refer to a previous discussion regarding
a training course on a particular technology. Emphasize your organization's
commitment to developing this technology, along with related activities
currently underway. Propose certain topics to be discussed during
the training while giving the speaker the freedom to modify or expand
on any of the proposed topics.

belong to correspondence
regarding arrangements for a training program and/or guest worker
period. Correspondence regarding arrangements for a training program
and/or guest worker period often includes the following:
Proposing the training course or guest worker period
Proposing the technical training period should be stated with confidence
in the organization's ability to meet your organizational or individual
needs. Such examples are:
"Could you provide a short training course at UCL, on the current
developments and applications of MS as used in Polymer research?"
"Would you allow me to serve as a guest worker in your laboratory?"
"I would like to serve as a guest worker in your laboratory for six
to eight months."
A description of your organization's current work and research (as
related to the training program)
Providing as much information about your own personal background or
your organization's requirements or needs will allow the reader to
determine whether he or she can help you.
"I have a master's degree in Materials Science and Engineering and
have received special training in thin film deposition photolithography
and chemical etching. I am currently designing a process that would
integrates these technologies for the development of a pressure sensor
that is based on a metal thin strain gauge."
"The Pressure/Vacuum Measurement Laboratory at the Center for Measurement
Standards is planning to develop the primary pressure standard (PPS)
of the mercury manometer so as to promote and strengthen our laboratory's
A clear statement of how the training course can benefit your organization
A clear statement of what you expect to gain from the training course
will avoid further confusion.
"I also agree that the introduction of Molecular Simulation at UCL
would provide a more thorough understanding of polymer morphology-structure
property relationship and the directions for research activity."
"Your laboratory, one of the leaders in this field of research, could
provide me with a marvelous opportunity to learn about sensor manufacturing.
An itinerary or set of topics that will be covered during the training
Stating your expectations of the training itinerary may prevent later
