Many of the hyperlinks under 'Supporting materials' are links to external websites. From time to time URLs are changed and so you may get a '404' error report ("Page not found"). If you go to the site homepage you should be able to locate the publication, though this doesn't always work. Some publications may temporarily not be hyperlinked: this generally means we're waiting for a new link to be provided on the site.

Microsoft Producer log
Note 1: the Microsoft Producer presentation links on these pages open a new page with the presentation selected.  You can then play the presentation, but this is in "streaming" mode and, depending on your Internet connection, it may suffer from interruptions and need to rebuffer. As an alternative you can download a zipped file of each presentation here and play them from your own PC.
Note 2: these Microsoft Producer presentations were developed as study aides for MEng & MSc(Eng) students in the School of Civil Engineering at the University of Leeds, UK. They are essentially amateur, rather than professionally polished, productions.
Note 3: information on how to make your own Microsoft Producer presentations is given here.
