Download E-books Geometrical Objects: Architecture and the Mathematical Sciences 1400-1800 (Archimedes) PDF

By Anthony Gerbino

This quantity explores the mathematical personality of architectural perform in different pre- and early smooth contexts. It takes an explicitly interdisciplinary procedure, which unites scholarship in early smooth structure with fresh paintings within the heritage of technology, particularly, at the function of perform within the “scientific revolution”. As a contribution to architectural background, the amount contextualizes layout and development by way of modern mathematical wisdom, attendant different types of mathematical perform, and proper social differences among the mathematical professions. As a contribution to the background of technology, the quantity offers a chain of micro-historical stories that spotlight problems with technique, materiality, and information creation in particular, located, useful contexts. Our technique sees the designer’s studio, the stone-yard, the drawing flooring, and development web site no longer in basic terms as areas the place the architectural item takes form, yet the place mathematical wisdom itself is deployed, exchanged, and amplified between numerous individuals within the construction process.

Download E-books Die Netzwerkarchitektur SNA: Eine praxisorientierte Einführung in die Systems Network Architecture der IBM (German Edition) PDF

By Hugo Schröer

Nach einer Einführung in IBM's Netzwerkarchitektur wird die komplexe Struktur dieses Netzwerkkonzeptes anschaulich und praxisnah vermittelt. Ausgehend von dem physischen Erscheinungsbild eines SNA-Netzwerkes, den Netzwerkknoten und Netzwerkverbindungen werden die logischen SNA-Netzwerkkomponenten und internen Abläufe in einem Netzwerk beschrieben. Begriffe wie consultation, LU, PU und SSCP werden mit Inhalten gefüllt und ihre Bedeutung anhand zahlreicher Grafiken dargestellt. Die für eine erfolgreiche Kommunikation im Netz notwendigen Absprachen und Regeln, SNA-Protokolle und Profile, werden in diesem Buch so eingehend behandelt, daß der Leser in die Lage versetzt wird, SNA-Datenströme analysieren und das SNA-Protokollverhalten nachvollziehen zu können. Dabei wird auch SNA's historischer Entwicklung von einem hierarchischen und am Mainframe orientierten Netzwerk zu einem Netzwerk mit gleichberechtigten Komponenten Rechnung getragen. Den SNA-Architekturerweiterungen LU 6.2 und APPC ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet. Hier werden die LU 6. 2-Formate und -Protokolle leicht verständlich dargestellt und durch viele Beispiele die Interaktionen zwischen Transaktionsprogrammen und der LU 6.2 verdeutlicht. Das Buch ist über eine Einführung in SNA hinaus auch ein Nachschlagewerk, das beim täglichen Umgang mit einem SNA-Netzwerk gute Dienste leistet.

Download E-books Layers Volumes Light: Abramson Teiger Architects PDF

By Carolyn Horwitz

Abramson Teiger Architects designs sculptural and light-filled sleek houses, institutional and cultural structures, and advertisement areas. The enterprise makes a speciality of modern designs that convey the legacy of Southern California mid-century structure into the current day.

Headed through Trevor Abramson, FAIA, and Douglas Teiger, AIA, the award-winning l. a. enterprise designs dynamic constructions of wooden, glass, concrete, stone, and metal, with stripped-down kinds and expansive home windows that create a robust indoor/outdoor connection. Sustainability is imperative to the firm’s designs, which frequently comprise new fabrics that advertise thermal balance, our bodies of water for evaporative cooling, and a powerful specialize in normal light.

Layers Volumes gentle: Abramson Teiger Architects showcases 15 residential and institutional tasks. between them are the sculptural Sinnott place of dwelling, the featured domestic in ABC’s hit tv convey “Modern Family”; the hovering First Presbyterian Church in Encino, California, winner of a number of layout awards from the yankee Institute of Architects; and compelling sleek homes in California, Wyoming, and Ontario.

Download E-books ACI 445.1R-12: Report on Torsion in Structural Concrete PDF

A transparent figuring out of the results of torsion on concrete participants is key to the secure, low-priced layout of strengthened and prestressed concrete participants. This file starts with a quick and systematic precis of the 180-year background of torsion of structural concrete individuals, new and up-to-date theories and their functions, and a old evaluate outlining the improvement of study on torsion of structural concrete individuals. ancient theories and truss versions comprise classical theories of Navier, Saint-Venant, and Bredt; the third-dimensional (3-D) house truss of Rausch; the equilibrium (plasticity) truss version of Nielson in addition to Lampert and Thürlimann; the compression box concept (CFT) by way of Collins and Mitchell; and the softened truss version (STM) by means of Hsu and Mo.

This record emphasizes that it really is necessary to the research of torsion in strengthened concrete that participants should still: 1) fulfill the equilibrium situation (Mohr’s pressure circle); 2) obey the compatibility situation (Mohr’s pressure circle); and three) determine the constitutive relationships of fabrics akin to the “softened” stress-strain courting of concrete and “smeared” stress-strain dating of metal bars. The habit of individuals subjected to torsion mixed with bending second, axial load, and shear is mentioned. This document bargains with layout matters, together with compatibility torsion, spandrel beams, torsional restrict layout, open sections, and dimension effects.

The ultimate chapters are dedicated to the detailing necessities of transverse and longitudinal reinforcement in torsional participants with certain, step by step layout examples for 2 beams lower than torsion utilizing ACI (ACI 318-11), ecu (EC2-04), and Canadian criteria organization (CSA-A23.3-04) criteria. layout examples are given to demonstrate the stairs fascinated with torsion layout. layout instance 1 is an oblong strengthened concrete beam less than natural torsion, and layout instance 2 is a prestressed concrete girder less than mixed torsion, shear, and flexure.

Download E-books Architecture and Urbanism in the British Empire (Oxford History of the British Empire Companion Series) PDF

All through present day postcolonial global, structures, monuments, parks, streets, avenues, complete towns even, stay as witness to Britain's as soon as extraordinary if stricken imperial prior. those buildings are a conspicuous and close to inescapable reminder of that prior, and as a result, the outfitted background of Britain's former colonial empire is a basic a part of how we negotiate our postcolonial identities, usually mendacity on the middle of social rigidity and debate over how that id is healthier represented.

This quantity presents an summary of the architectural and concrete differences that came about around the British Empire among the 17th and mid-twentieth centuries. even though a lot learn has been performed on structure and concrete making plans in Britain's empire in fresh a long time, no unmarried, accomplished reference resource exists. The essays compiled right here treatment this deficiency. With its broad chronological and nearby insurance by way of top students within the box, this quantity will quick develop into a seminal textual content when you examine, educate, and learn the connection among empire and the equipped surroundings within the British context. It presents an up to date account of prior and present historiographical methods towards the learn of British imperial and colonial structure and urbanism, and may turn out both necessary to people who examine structure and urbanism in different ecu imperial and transnational contexts.

The quantity is split in major sections. the 1st part bargains with overarching thematic matters, together with development typologies, significant genres and classes of job, networks of workmanship and the transmission of rules, the intersection among making plans and politics, in addition to the architectural impression of empire on Britain itself. the second one part builds at the first through discussing those topics with regards to particular nation-states, teasing out the diversities and continuities observable in context, either functional and theoretical.
