Progress Towards Multi-Criteria Design Optimisation Using Designscript With Smart Form, Robot Struct
Important progress towards the development of a system that enables multi-criteria design optimisation has recently been demonstrated during a research collaboration between Autodesk?s DesignScript development team, the University of Bath and the engineering consultancy Buro Happold. This involved integrating aspects of the Robot Structural Analysis application, aspects of the Ecotect building performance application and a specialist form finding solver called SMART Form (developed by Buro Happo

Architect and Structural Engineer in interactive design
We are convinced that an interactive design process involving engineers and architects will create values to a project. Looking back there have been some obstacles, like a week?s time for exchange of drawings with traditional postal services; manual calculation methods, which could not be spoiled on loose grounds like architect?s sketches; different media ? architect?s drawings and engineer?s numbers in tables; attitudes and traditional roles, implemented already in education. Today most of thes

'The Case for Offshore Balancing' with John Mearsheimer
Professor John J. Mearsheimer (University of Chicago) presents the conclusions of his latest article published in 'Foreign Affairs' on offshore balancing. Mearsheimer sets out his case against the practice of liberal hegemony by the US, making the bold statement that Presidents Bush and Obama have acted very similarly when it comes to intervention abroad. He examines the track record of US involvement in places like Iraq, Libya, Egypt and Syria before moving on to explain why 'offshore balancing

Machines that change climate: Porsche 911 Turbo vs. Toyota Prius
This activity asks students make 'back-of-the-envelope' calculations to estimate the amount of carbon dioxide released to the environment by different types of automobiles. It shows students that decisions they make can significantly alter the amount of greenhouse gases they release to the environment. It also helps students learn about exponential growth by calculating how the money saved by purchasing an inexpensive car can be invested to great advantage. The exercise is designed for non-scien

Star Library: Histogram Sorting
This activity provides students with 24 histograms representing distributions with differing shapes and characteristics. By sorting the histograms into piles that seem to go together, and by describing those piles, students develop awareness of the different versions of particular shapes (e.g., different types of skewed distributions, or different types of normal distributions), that not all histograms are easy to classify, that there is a difference between models (normal, uniform) and characte

Collaborative distributed environments for learning design tasks by means of modelling and simulatio
The Simulation discipline has to face new challenges such as the incorporation of Collaborative Technologies for professional use as well as for teaching purposes. This integration permits the creation of new kinds of support for collaborative learning processes. In this paper, we explore the potential of this synergy with DomoSim-TPC, a synchronous distributed collaborative environment for the teaching and learning of Domotics. The system supports an active, simulation-based and problem-based a

A Model for the Efficient Representation and Management of Online Collaborative Learning Interaction
This study aims to explore the importance of the efficient representation and management of the event information generated from group activity in online collaborative learning practices so that we can use it to provide awareness about individual and group behaviour. The achievement of this goal first involves the design of a conceptual model of collaborative learning interaction that structures and classifies the information generated in an online collaborative learning situation at several lev
