ACI 352R-02: Recommendations for Design of Beam-Column by ACI


Options are given for member proportions, confinement of the column center within the joint zone, regulate of joint shear pressure, ratio of column-to-beam flexural energy on the connection, improvement of reinforcing bars, and information of columns and beams framing into the joint. common variety is used for ideas. observation is equipped in italics to enlarge the strategies an establish to be had reference fabric. The ideas are according to laboratory trying out and box reviews and supply a cutting-edge precis of present details. parts wanting study are pointed out. layout examples are provided to demonstrate using the layout concepts.

Voltage-to-Frequency Converters: CMOS Design and by Cristina Azcona Murillo

By Cristina Azcona Murillo

This booklet develops voltage-to-frequency converter (VFC) recommendations built-in in commonplace CMOS know-how for use as part of a microcontroller-based, multisensor interface within the surroundings of moveable functions, fairly inside a WSN node. insurance comprises the entire layout stream of monolithic VFCs, in keeping with the objective software, in addition to the research, layout and implementation of the most VFC blocks, revealing the most demanding situations and recommendations encountered through the layout of such excessive functionality cells. 4 entire VFCs, every one temperature compensated, are totally designed and evaluated: a programmable VFC that comes with an offset frequency and a sleep/mode permit terminal; a low strength rail-to-rail VFC; and rail-to-rail differential VFCs.

The Bazaar in the Islamic City: Design, Culture, and History by Mohammad Gharipour

By Mohammad Gharipour

The center jap bazaar is far greater than a context for trade: the reviews during this ebook illustrate that markets, despite their position, scale, and permanency, have additionally performed very important cultural roles inside their societies, reflecting ancient evolution, business improvement, social and political stipulations, city morphology, and architectural services. This interdisciplinary quantity explores the dynamics of the bazaar with a few case reports from Cairo, Damascus, Aleppo, Nablus, Bursa, Istanbul, Sana’a, Kabul, Tehran, and Yazd. even if they percentage a few contextual and practical features, each one bazaar has its personal exact and interesting historical past, traditions, cultural practices, and constitution. probably the most interesting elements published during this quantity is the thread of continuity from previous to provide exhibited via the bazaar as a discussion board the place a society meets and intermingles within the perform of products exchange—a social and cultural ritual that's as outdated as human history.

Mohammad Gharipour teaches on the university of structure and concrete making plans at Morgan nation college. He has released broadly at the background of Islamic structure and concrete layout, and is the director and founding editor of the overseas magazine of Islamic structure.

IUTAM Symposium on Topological Design Optimization of by Grégoire Allaire, François Jouve (auth.), Martin Philip

By Grégoire Allaire, François Jouve (auth.), Martin Philip Bendsøe, Niels Olhoff, Ole Sigmund (eds.)

This publication comprises the refereed and edited types of papers provided on the IUTAM Symposium on Topological layout Optimization of buildings, - chines and fabrics: prestige and views, held at Rungstedgaard, close to Copenhagen, Denmark, October 26–29, 2005. The symposium was once attended by way of seventy four scientists from 19 international locations, and the programme was once in depth and - cluded additionally evenings for shows and discussions. it really is now greater than 15 years in the past that the so-called homogenization strategy used to be proposed as a foundation for computational potential to optimize the topology and form of continuum buildings. From in the beginning being able regularly of treating minimal compliance layout we now see the fundamental fabric distribution proposal of the technique utilized to quite a lot of structural and mechanical pr- lems in addition to to difficulties that couple structural reaction to different actual responses. additionally, the strategy has supplied perception for micro-mechanical st- ies, which means that the tactic has given suggestions to the world which supplied impetus to the ?eld of topological layout optimization in its construction. eventually, topological layout is now an essential component of so much FEM software program platforms and it has turn into a regular business instrument in a few ?elds. The IUTAM Symposium supplied a discussion board for the trade of principles for - ture advancements within the quarter of topological layout optimization. This enc- handed the appliance to ?uid-solid interplay difficulties, acoustics difficulties, and to difficulties in biomechanics, in addition to to different multiphysics problems.

Balanced Automation Systems: Architectures and design by Professor J. Browne (auth.), Luis Camarinha-Matos, Hamideh

By Professor J. Browne (auth.), Luis Camarinha-Matos, Hamideh Afsarmanesh (eds.)

Towards Balanced Automation the idea that. production industries around the globe are dealing with tricky demanding situations on account of the globalization of financial system and the openness of the markets. development of the commercial blocks reminiscent of the ecu Union, NAFTA, and MERCOSUR, and the worldwide agreements similar to GATT, as well as their visible monetary and social results, impress powerful paradigm shifts within the manner that the producing platforms are conceived and function. to extend profitability and decrease the producing bills, there's a contemporary tendency in the direction of developing partnership hyperlinks one of the concerned industries, often among large industries and the networks of elements' providers. to learn from the advances in expertise, related agreements are being demonstrated among industries and universities and study institutes. Such an open tete-cooperation community will be pointed out as a longer firm or a digital firm. in truth, the producing technique isn't any extra performed by way of a unmarried firm, relatively every one firm is simply a node that provides a few price (a step within the production chain) to the cooperation community of organisations. the recent traits create new situations and technological demanding situations, particularly to the Small and Medium measurement organizations (SMEs) that truly contain the overpowering majority of producing companies around the globe. lower than the classical situations, those SMEs could have had gigantic problems to entry or enjoy the cutting-edge know-how, because of their constrained human, monetary, and fabric resources.
