Technical Aspects of the Urban Simulator in Tampere University of Technology
The colour video recording Urban Simulator in TUT was built very early compared with the development of video systems. A contract for planning the simulator electronics, mechanics and camera systems was made in january 1978 with two TUT students: Jani Granholm (computer science and engineering) and Ilkka Alavalkama (machine design and automation). Ease of control and maintenance were asked by side of ?human movement inside coloured small-scale architectural models?. From the beginning, all compo
A Tool for Typological Analysis
Any design problem is faced drawing from the architect's knowledge both case knowledge and general knowledge. One type of the latter is abstracted from a multiplicity of cases of which the common features are recognised in such a way as to single out a prototype representing in the best way a class of architectural objects. If applied to a set of residential buildings and to the flats in them the analysis is typological and it is one of the fundamental ways of acquiring general knowledge to be u
Mixing Domains: Architecture plus Software Engineering
Software engineering is a multidisciplinary area of knowledge combining competence in computation with at least one other area of expertise, typically in the domain of the applications being created. A course offering for students of engineering, architecture and software engineering at Carnegie Mellon illustrates the challenges and opportunities of cross-domain instruction. These include ontology, problem taxonomies, and instruction strategies.
The House of Affects Project
The House of Affects is an experimental installation to be part of the PerFormaSpace project pursued at the University of Cambridge, UK (DIGIS) and Goldsmiths College London, U.C.L. (Digital Studios), currently partially funded by Arts&Business East 2006, in collaboration with Econavate, UK who will provide their technical expertise in fabrication using recycled materials. This paper presents project-specific information and theoretical discussion on the design process and the computational meth
Private Equity in Emerging Markets Is Being Rebalanced
Part II of this Knowledge@Wharton podcast looks at the falling market share of PE for emerging markets, and the rising investments outside of the BRIC countries, and the increasing importance of operational improvement.
The interpresence project ? design in progress
The Interpresence Project exercises the language of communication design and mediatecture to propose planetary coalescence through complex and innovative informational flows through cyberspace allowing for human teleactive encounters.

Flocks without shepherds? Governmentality, sovereignty and the paradoxical politics of IDP protectio
Public Seminar Series, Hilary term 2013. Seminar by Dr Simon Addison (SOAS) recorded on 30 January 2013 at the Oxford Department of International Development, University of Oxford. By applying theoretical insights drawn from the work of Foucault and Ranciere, this paper explores the paradoxically political nature of international doctrine on the protection of internally displaced persons as an apparatus of global biopolitical governmentality.
Neutron science and reactor physics
The website for this course (22.05 Neutron Science and Reactor Physics, Fall 2006) is made available by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Nuclear Science and Engineering as part of the MIT OpenCourseWare project. "This course introduces fundamental properties of the neutron. It covers reactions induced by neutrons, nuclear fission, slowing down of neutrons in infinite media, diffusion theory, the few-group approximation, point kinetics, and fission-product poisoning.
Physics Students Uncovered
As part of National Science Week, the ANU College of Science recently pitted 5 Physics PhD students against each other in a competition to showcase their presentation skills, passion and ability to communicate their phd topic.
Post-traumatic stress is not a military condition -- it's a human condition
Bob Delaney speaks to The War College student body in the first of multiple activities scheduled in September for the Army War College community to raise awareness about suicide prevention.
This teacher-created video contains students' illustrations of the literal meanings of idioms. The idioms and their meanings appear in print at the bottom of each illustration. Lively music plays in the background. Examples of idioms include "spill the beans," "bite the hand that feeds you," and "in the doghouse." Some of the text on the screen is difficult to read in places. (0:50)

3.A26 Freshman Seminar: The Nature of Engineering (MIT)
Are you interested in investigating how nature engineers itself? How engineers copy the shapes found in nature ("biomimetics")? This Freshman Seminar investigates why similar shapes occur in so many natural things and how physics changes the shape of nature. Why are things in nature shaped the way they are? How do birds fly? Why do bird nests look the way they do? How do woodpeckers peck? Why can't trees grow taller than they are? Why is grass skinny and hollow? What is the wood science behind m
