Implementation of IT and CAD - what can Architect schools do?
In Sweden representatives from the Construction industry have put forward a research and development program called: "IT-Bygg 2002 -Implementation".

1.4 What is ethics?

I'd like to introduce an idea of ethics based on the work of G. E. Moore, a Cambridge Don who died fifty years ago. Bearing in mind that concerns with ethics date back at least to the Ancient Greeks, you might not be surprised that I bring in some ideas from Moore's Principia Ethica, a text written over 100 years ago but articulated in a particularly clear and plain-speaking style. Moore's take on things is that when ‘good’ and ‘bad’ are involved, then we're in the realm of eth

11.3 Frequency selectivity

In preceding sections we examined two ways in which the auditory system may code frequency information: the place theory and phase locking. In this section we will look at the psychophysical evidence for place coding on the basilar membrane by examining the ability of the auditory system to resolve the components of sinusoidal waves in a complex sound – a phenomenon known as frequency selectivity.

The perception of a sound depends not only on its own frequency and intensity but also o

4.1.1 Disability discrimination legislation

This activity uses the UK Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) Part 4 as the basis for discussing the concept of making reasonable adjustments. The DDA may not apply to you directly, but many countries have similar legislation. We feel the underlying principles of such legislation reflect the moral standpoint or the right thing to do, regardless of whether or not legislation exists.

7.3 The central engine

  • An object that fluctuates in brightness on a timescale Δt can have a radius no greater than RcΔt.

  • The point-like nature of AGNs and their rapid variability imply that the emitting region is smaller than the size of the Solar System.

  • The central engine of a typical AGN is believed to contain a supermassive black hole of mass ∼108M and Schwarzschild radius
