Integrating Energy Design Into Caad Tools: Theoretical Limits and Potentials
The study is part of a research aims to establish theoretical grounds essential for the development of user efficient design tools for energy-conscious architectural design, based on theories in human factors of intelligent interfaces, problem solving, and architectural design. It starts by reviewing the shortcomings of the current energy design tools, from both architectural design and human factor points of view. It discusses the issues of energy integration with design from three different po

Re-Evaluation and Recommendations for Redesign of the World Trade Center : Final Report
After the collapse of the World Trade Center, Towers 1 and 2, several questions were raised about the fire protection, egress and emergency evacuation systems. Full engineering services were provided to analyze the design of these systems to investigate what improvements can be made to keep the buildings standing longer, which could have saved more lives. Towers 1 and 2 each has a building footprint of an acre, stood 110 stories tall, housed 50,000 employees and an additional 26,000 visitors da
Hydrophone spatial averaging corrections from 1 to 100 MHz
The purpose of this work was to develop and experimentally verify a set of robust and readily applicable spatial averaging models to account for ultrasonic hydrophone probe's finite aperture in acoustic field measurements in the frequency range 1 - 100 MHz. Electronically and mechanically focused acoustic sources of different geometries were considered. The geometrics included single element circular sources and rectangular shape tranducers that were representative of ultrasound imaging arrays u

Cold War: After Stalin (1953-1956) Part 4 of 5
Cold War is a twenty-four episode television documentary series about the Cold War (1945--1989). Jeremy Isaacs produced the 1998 program in a style similar to his previous series, The World at War (1973). Businessman Ted Turner created the series as a joint production between the Turner Broadcasting System and the BBC, originally broadcast on CNN in the U.S. and the BBC Two in the U.K. Kenneth Branagh. It featured interviews with leading political figures and people who witnessed and lived throu
2.1 Violence towards children For many children, the place where they experience most violence is in the home. Since the American paediatrician Henry Kempe first publicized the ‘battered child syndrome’ in 1962, the extent and nature of child abuse in the home has increasingly been recognized, and become the subject of research, legislation and social care practice. Following on from Kempe's claims that some children were routinely beaten and ill treated within their own families, other issues such as sexual abus

Derecho Internacional Privado (2012)
El Derecho internacional privado (= DIPr.) es el sector del ordenamiento jurídico de cada Estado que se ocupa de la regulación jurídica de las “situaciones privadas internacionales” (= “concepción privatista del DIPr.”). Esta concepción privatista del DIPr. es una concepción con coherencia científica (=el objeto del DIPr. está compuesto por una serie de relaciones jurídicas de caracteres similares: son relaciones entre particulares y que presentan carácter internacional).

In this monograph, Butler Shaffer addresses an important question that has aroused much interest among libertarians: What is the status of intellectual property? Are patents and copyrights legitimate? This is a major contribution to libertarian legal theory and an indispensable guide to a vital topic. Narrated by Clay Barnett. Music by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com).

Throughout known architectural history, representation, media and design have been recognized to have a close relationship. This relationship is inseparable; representation being a means for engaging in design thinking and making and this activity requiring media. Interpretations as to what exactly this relationship is or means have been subject to debate, disagreement and change along the ages. Whereas much has been said about the interactions between representation and design, little has been
6.828 teaches the fundamentals of engineering operating systems. The following topics are studied in detail: virtual memory, kernel and user mode, system calls, threads, context switches, interrupts, interprocess communication, coordination of concurrent activities, and the interface between software and hardware. Most importantly, the interactions between these concepts are examined. The course is divided into two blocks; the first block introduces an operating system, xv6, which runs on x

The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the elbow is a major passive stabilizer againstvalgus moments and is a frequent site of injury for the professional throwing athlete. Due to theimportance of the UCL in elbow stabilization, many clinical and biomechanical studies wereconducted in the past to understand its role; however, no study has evaluated the stabilizingfunction of the UCL when subjected to a pure valgus-varus moment at varying degrees of flexion.In addition, few comparative studies ha
