An Electronic Design Assistance Tool for Case Based Representation of Designs
In precedent based design, solutions to problems are developed by drawing from an understanding of landmark designs. Many of the key design operations in this mode are similar to the functionalities present in case based reasoning systems: case matching, case adapting, and case representation. It is clear that a rich case base, encoding all major product types in a design domain would be the centerpiece of such an approach. EDAT (Electronic Design Assistance Tool) is intended to assist in preced

Science Bulletins: Suburban Growth Stresses Streams
Ecologists have established a long-term study of streams that flow through urban, suburban, rural, and forested areas of western North Carolina. Their goal is to observe how water quality and different species—from algae to insects to fish—change when roads and buildings are constructed near streams. The work will also enable scientists to forecast how streams in forested areas respond as new development encroaches. Such predictions could help inform land-use decisions by public and private
