Intuitive and Effective Design of Periodic Symmetric Tiles
This paper presents a new approach for intuitive and effective design of periodic symmetric tiles. We observe that planar graphs can effectively represent symmetric tiles and graph drawing provides an intuitive paradigm for designing symmetric tiles. Moreover, based on our theoretical work to represent hexagonal symmetry by rectangular symmetry, we are able to present all symmetric tiles as graphs embedded on a torus and based on simple modulo operations. This approach enables us to develop a si

ICAtect: Integrating Design Tools for Preliminary Architectural Design
ICAtect is a knowledge based system that provides an interface between expert systems, simulation packages and CAD systems used for preliminary architectural design. This thesis describes its structure and development.The principal work discussed in this thesis involves the formulation of a method for representing a building. This is developed through an examination of a number of design tools used in architectural design, and the ways in which each of these describe a building.Methods of enabli

Reinterpretation or replacement? The effects of the information and communication technologies on ur
The timid question ?Virtual spaces or real places?? forms the core of many debates within the spatial sciences addressing theconsequences of the rapid development of information and communication technologies1 on existing spatial structures. So far several opinions rival each other for the interpretation of current and the prediction of future spatial developments. The spacelessness ofcomputer networks and the possibility to transmit data in real-time have lead visionaries to predict a far-reach

Physics in Action: Barrel Crunch
Professor Ephraim Fischbach demonstrates barrel crunch in this video from Thinkwell's online Physics series. They began by heating water inside the barrel to create steam.  They then capped the barrel to keep the steam inside and poured liquid nitrogen over it to make sure that the can cooled down quickly. The steam condensed and created a partial vacuum. The atmospheric pressure outside the can was stronger than the pressure inside, causing it to collapse.  Run time 04:30.
