Structural modelling and analysis using BIM tools Master of Science in Civil Engineering The School of Civil Engineering, Aalborg University Anne Kathrine Nielsen & Søren Madsen Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine The School of Civil Engineering Aalborg University Sohngaardsholmsvej 57 DK-9000 Aalborg Phone +45 9940 8530 http://bsn.aau.dk Title: Structural modelling and analysis using BIM tools Theme: Master’s Thesis Project period: 1st of February to the 9th of June 2010 Synopsis: This study will focus on the structural engineering part in the detail design phase of the building process. Different S-BIM tools are evaluated through analyses of ﬁve structures with varying complexity, different section properties, geometry, material properties and so on. The S-BIM tools evaluated are: Made by: Anne Kathrine Nielsen Søren Madsen Supervisor: Poul Henning Kirkegaard Editions: 3 Number of pages: 81 Appendices: 7 • Add-on tool for Revit Structure • Direct link between Revit and Robot • Direct link between Revit and StaadPro • Indirect link between Revit and Robot via IFC The Revit add-on tool tested can be rather useful for calculating section forces and deﬂection in feasibility studies if a ’load-takedown’ feature is introduced. It is found that the direct links in general are best. Regarding timber structures, the link between Revit and Robot works better than the link between Revit and StaadPro. The tested IFC exchange ﬁle format, IFC Coordination View, was not found suitable for the tests performed in this study.

Determinates take up less room and include patio varieties. Basically, a tomatoes will require about 9 square feet per plant unless trellised. For trellised plants, plant every 4 feet. Peppers need about 1 square feet per plant. Can plant started plants or start seeds indoors. Onions and garlic can be planted 12 per square foot. Can plant started plants or start seed indoors. Herbs-depending on type and variety, most herbs can be planted one plant per foot. Can plant started plants or start seed indoors. Walkways Walkways Adding supports frees up more space so you can add more plants! Commonly started directly outdoors as seeds: Beans Peas Carrots Squash Corn Watermelon Cucumbers Lettuce
This is a sample of the kinds of stuff that you might use to build your Junk Drawer Robotics robots. The items listed and shown are some of the things and parts that can be useful for the robotics activities in this curriculum. This is not a complete list and should be used just as a reference and source for other ideas. Most of the items do not have to be exactly the same as the ones listed or shown and can be whatever you can find or have locally. You can browse in the grocery, hardware, office supply and the “dollar” stores to find different items that can be used by the youth. Sometimes inexpensive items can be used in constructing other items. A cheap toy vehicle can be taken apart. The axles and wheels, and motor if it has one, can be used to make the robots cheaper than buying new parts. Other items like a bicycle, IPod, tongs, or pliers that might be used in some activities can be borrowed for that activity. A collection of old parts and equipment can become a great learning experience for young explorers. They can find and frame problems and develop creative solutions from such items.
The research reports on results of an initial application of the Love Attitude Scale (Hendrick & Hendrick, 1986) in Serbia. The study was conducted on the sample of 127 respondents, mainly of adolescent age, from Subotica, Serbia. We explored the factor structure of the Love Attitude Scale, analyzed relationships between its subscales, and examined relevant correlates of its dimensions. We also performed extensive item analysis of the scale, and proposed several new items for the use in the revised Love Attitude Scale for Serbia. Correlates of the revised subscales correspond to those obtained with the original scale and in other countries. The results confirm cross-cultural stability of the six-dimensional structure of the Love Attitude Scale. It was concluded that the Serbian adaptation was successful, and that the translated and slightly revised scale can be used as a valid instrument for the assessment of the six love styles. Keywords: Love styles; factor analysis; romantic behavior; Serbia For many years academic psychologists had not been interested in research on love. However, the last two decades witnessed rising interest in this aspect of human psychology with many developments and research programs. One of the outcomes is a number of operationalizations of different attitudes to love, love styles, or dimensions of love. Some examples are Rubin's (1970) Love Scale, the Love Scale developed by Munro and Adams (1978), the „Erotometer‟ developed by Bardis (1978), and Sternberg‟s Triangular Love Scale (1986, 1987, 1997).

In the first PowerPoint tutorial you learned how to create and save a new presentation (the Screenbeans slide show). You saw a sample slide show (The Tudor Monarchs). You learned how to prepare an outline, you typed text for each slide, added clip art, and set timings. You added an effect to enhance the slide transition, you selected a color scheme, and may have even created a new background effect. You changed the printer settings so that you can print out handouts rather than just individual slides of your shows. For many classrooms and for most K-12 students, what you learned in chapter 9 is just fine; it’s all you need to know. But, if you're ready to take the next step and learn some more advanced skills with PowerPoint, or if you teach computer-savvy students who want more challenging skills to master, this chapter's for you. Most PowerPoint presentations you see in school or at work are what are called linear presentations. That is, each slide is designed to proceed one slide right after another. The first slide transitions to the second, which transitions to the third, and so forth. For many educational tasks, this is fine. But, what if... What if you want your students to create an interactive story, where, for example, younger kids could read on Slide One a story about a dragon, then choose, on Slide Two, any one of three possible places that the dragon could go? By clicking on the word "desert," the show would move to a slide describing what happens to the dragon in the desert. If the student clicks on the word "forest," a different slide sequence appears with another ending. The learner thus participates, not by simply clicking on slide after slide in one, linear direction, but by making choices that affect what slide comes next, thus making the presentation interactive and non-linear.
Good meal planning can help you better control your blood sugar Eating healthy foods and adding variety to your menus is easier than you think. Your doctor or healthcare provider can help you develop a meal plan that helps control tour blood sugar. This sheet can help you make that plan more interesting by providing substitution options, so you don’t have to eat the same foods all the time. It also helps if you eat a balanced diet, eat meals at the same time every day, avoid skipping meals and eat food portions that are indicated by your individual meal plan. The American Diabetes Association recommends good eating habits along with being physically active as the primary part of any good type 2 diabetes management plan. Here’s how you can easily choose foods that fit your type 2 diabetes meal plan: · Find your total daily calorie level on the chart below. · Using the chart, plan your menus for the day with serving amounts from each group. · Look at the sample meal plan below to see how you can do this. · Give your meals variety by choosing other items from the same food groups.
Dear Reader, Zend Framework is a powerful platform for rapidly creating PHP applications. This book takes you step-by-step through the process of building a simple content management system with Zend Framework and MySQL. You start by installing Zend Server and the framework. Then you learn to leverage the framework’s components, which manage the system’s design, content, users, and navigation, among many other things. With the base system up and running, you move on to advanced topics such as performance tuning and creating an API for your CMS. Each topic adds to your CMS, building a flexible, stable, and powerful platform on which you can base your real-world projects This book is born from my experience of developing sites using many of the current open source CMS systems. These were adequate for the sort of projects that the CMS developers originally had in mind. Working with creative people, though, I found that even the simplest projects inevitably need some customization. Developing pure custom systems is an obvious solution, but it has a downside. There are many moving parts in a secure web publishing system, and developing them all from scratch takes far too long, as well as distracting you from writing key business logic. Zend Framework gives you the best of both worlds, letting you build exactly the software you want without ever having to reinvent the wheel. Forrest Lyman
