Da Representa??o ? Modelagem (From Representation Towards Modeling)
This work intends to structure a conceptual and technical referential to guide the development of the ?Post-Graduate Drawing Course - from traditional tracing to computer graphics? (DTGC-IFM,UFPel, RS, Brasil), related to the process of using the computer technology for problem-solving in graphics representation. The referential intends to evaluate the level of development, and also orientate the investments with qualification of the staff, hardware and software. This study refers only to the pr

Lecture 13: Designing for Strength: A Century of Solid Mechanics Research in Oxford
Professor Carlos Ruiz on "Designing for Strength: A Century of Solid Mechanics Research in Oxford". In 1908 C.W. Jenkin was appointed to the first chair of Engineering Science in Oxford University. He followed in the tradition, established by Hooke, to emphasise the practical application of research to the design of machines and structures. Thanks to his foresight, solid mechanics in Oxford has a strong scientific basis, combining theoretical formulation and exact experimental work to provide an

ALPS Competency in Practice Assessment (CIPA) Tool
One of the key aims of ALPS is to improve the assessment of competence in practice across 16 professions, increasing the confidence of new graduates and their employers. The CIPA tool has been developed to establish measures of new graduate confidence in their ability across a number of areas of professional competence. Initially it is being piloted as a self-rating tool with new graduates with the intention of extending its use by employers of new graduates. The tool offers a way of establishin

Elemental Methods for Integrated Architectures: Experimentation with Design Processes for Cable Net
Tension active systems are compelling architectural structures having an intimate connection between structural performance and the arrangement of material. The direct flow of structural forces through the material makes these systems attractive and unique from an aesthetic point of view, but they are a challenge to develop from a design and an engineering perspective. Traditional methods for solving such structural systems rely on both analog modeling techniques and the use of highly advanced e

Professor George Williams - Did Australia get the right laws?
Australia's anti-terror laws were enacted in an atmosphere of fear and grief following terrorist attacks overseas. Do our anti-terror laws go too far in the powers they confer? Do they need to be changed? Video 3 in the series "Anti Terror Laws & Australia" Prior to September 11 2001, Australia had no national anti-terror laws. Since then the sheer number of laws passed, and their scope, has exceeded those of many other countries. In this series Professor George Williams asks did we need anti

Modelling for Virtual Reality in Architecture
CAAD systems are using object modelling methods for building databases to make information available. Object data must then be made useful for many different purposes in the design process. Even if the capacity of the computer will allow an almost unlimited amount of information to be transformed, the eye does not make the transformations in the same ?simple? mathematical way. Trained architects have to involve in an inventive process of finding ways to ?harmonize? this new medium with the human

RECONCILING COMPUTER AND HAND: THE CASE OF AUTHOR IDENTITY IN DESIGN PRESENTATIONS
As computers were newly emerging in the field of architectural design, it was claimed that the impact of computers would change the way architects design and present. However, within the course of computer use in design, although the field of architectural practice might have been altered extremely, in architectural education there still seems to be a bond to conventional mind-hand-paper relation. One of the reasons for that bond is the fact that although being r 1000 elated to many technologies
