Development of Computer Systems for Use in Architectural Education
Computers have not been used in education in a way that fosters intellectual development of alternate approaches to design. Sufficient theory exists to use computing devices to support other potentially fruitful approaches to design. A proposal is made for the development of a computer system for architectural education which is built upon a particular model for design, that of rational decision making. Within the framework provided by the model, a series of courseware development projects are p
Part II: The Trucking Industry: Transition from Diesel to Natural Gas Is on Deck
The U.S. trucking industry faces major technological disruption – a switch from diesel fuel to natural gas products. This means new – and more expensive – engines and other infrastructure investments. But after a relatively short payback period, substantial fuel savings and environmental advantages offer significant incentives to plunge ahead.
