Illustrating Hillslope Diffusion with Physical and Numerical Models
In this lab exercise, students use hillslope evolution to examine how numerical theories are developed, how we might test this theory with an analog model, how numerical models are constructed and the limitations of numerical modeling. They do this by collecting hillslope data, constructing a model, and running the model to simulate sand hillslope evolution. Learning goals, context for use, and teaching tips and materials are provided.
Floor construction is the most serious activity in the building process serving as the main link between sub- structure and super-structure. Apart from the foundation, the floor of the building serves as the most immediate support for super-structure. The loads of the walls and columns and imposed loads are first transmitted to the floor before reaching the foundation concrete. The inability of a floor to support the above loads and onward transmission will indicate the ineffective nature of the
