I have found numerous of academic articles pertaining to this topic, and have tracedthe consistencies and patterns that are common to these articles. Through my research, I have found sources thatdiscuss the research of peak stress analysis in structures (Atzoria et al.; Meneghettia et al.;Wang et al.), as well asdocumentation of safety protocol (ASTM International; NSPE), which is applied in the industrial world throughamusement parks such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Alton Towers (Ogando; ProfessionalEngineering).I decided to explore this topic because….The topic of analysis structures is important to my field because….
Inquiry paper conclusion At the end of your paper, you’ll need to identify a “gap” in the research you’ve conducted. If you were already in the field that you are studying, how would you contribute to the conversation?Think about:--Studying a different population. High Schoolers/college students/ senior citizens--Studying a different aspect of what your sources say. Making just one clarification--Conducting a study that looks at different variables or a different population.
WRITE At the end of your last section, write one paragraph that summarizes the conversation you have explored and identifies a gap in the research:My sources have covered….. However, they have not covered….If Iwere to continue exploring this topic as anengineer/psychologist/politician, I would look at…..because…..
