The realistic response of the steel frames cannot always be investigated with idealized rigid or articulated joints. For sideways loads, significant calculation errors may occur if the modeling of the joints does not take into account their most realistic behaviour. The use of semi-rigid joints, both in design and construction, can result in favourable structural properties in the case of steel frames, especially in seismic areas.
This research work is still considered as a theoretical reference material for transmitting the important role that thermoelectric materials play in evolving reality of our world. In this update, a brief reminder of the basics behind thermoelectric materials is provided, followed by some of the most recent developments, whether successful or not, in the attempt to create new more efficient materials for heat recovery within the coming years. One of the approaches deals with an innovative way to produce an already existing base material for thermoelectric application, whilst the other approaches describe new possibilities that were attempts to reach a higher dimensional figure of merit zT.
The purpose of my research is to provide insight into the current state of smart cities. According to the everyday language, settlements use digital solutions for smart cities, which make life easier for people, who living there. The article demonstrates the impact on smart cities and how complex this concept is in practice. A smart city is constantly exploring and analysing the effects of the developments and innovations introduced.
While the forward kinematic task of robots can be solved easily through homogenous transformation matrices, the inverse kinematic task leads to difficulties as the construction of the system becomes more complex. In this paper, a solution has been worked out for a three Degree-of-Freedom (DOF) robot-arm based on recent research, by the use of a novel, fixed-point transformation based technique.
For metal forming problems, even for a simple forming technology, finite element analysis can provide a solution for calculating deformations, determining stress and strain distributions. The aim of this study is to create a parametric finite element model for deep drawing technology, by which technological optimization as well as theoretical problems can be solved. By performing parameter studies, numerous cases can be analyzed.
There comes a time in the life of every family when their child becomes an adult and sets out to put themselves to a great test: undertaking further studies in higher education institutions. But can we really use the word adult for these youngsters? Seen from a teacher’s point of view, we surely cannot: we see them every day, and it is obvious that they are still very much children. And if we think deeper, we can understand it, we too were once freshmen. When parents let their children go out into a world that is yet unknown to them, the most important concern is their safety. Security consciousness is appearing in many places in higher education. Getting to the school, living in hostels, the rent, the whole environment, the list is endless. But we should mention something that has become an integral part of the new world, which is freedom, and the lack of parental control. Many simply cannot handle this and get carried away, some people just can’t say no to a friend’s invitation. And there is yet another serious source of danger; the Internet. Social media pages, email accounts, video sharing channels, etc. that keep appearing and refreshing. All are potential sources of attack, and if we don’t have sufficient means of protection, youngsters can easily fall prey.
In order to understand transitional spaces I would like to create an in-depth study that includeshow they evolve, reviews their evolution and hierarchy, and analyses their role and importance. There are several types of transition spaces that can be distinguished, in my study I examine more specifically the transitions between the natural and built environment. In my study I wanted to put emphasis on the relationship between man and nature, furthermore the relationship between nature and architecture, this knowledge is necessary to understand these spaces.

Just like at the Romans, the bath was the main venue of everyday life for the Turkish people as well. Besides exchanging recipes, women gave advice to each other, the men disputed important issues and often kept pre arranged marriages here. You were only allowed to pray, when you were sufficiently cleaned. Of course, it is not insignificant that the construction of baths was in many cases intended to promote material well-being, as they were usually built by senior executives who influenced the satisfaction of their followers in a very positive direction. Generally speaking, these baths were free for the reasons mentioned above, indicating to everyone that the builder was a wealthy man.

Hungary has been the home of many peoples from the beginnings of its history. As a result, our accumulated heritage is made up of buildings which were built, used and formed by different peoples during their lifetimes. This study investigates the diversity of the built heritage, the architectural and social multiculturalism in the city centre of Pécs.
The larger part of Pécs’s downtown area – an area that still preserves the structure of the medieval city – is protected either by local or national regulations. Although the street structure within the limits of the city wall have not changed, the cityscape has undergone more transformations, since every architectural era has left its dominant mark in the buildings. In this study I will analyse one of the most important East-West axes of the downtown, and in more specific detail the Király Street with its historically important buildings. I will describe the history of its development, its past and present function, and the changes that this area has undergone up to the present day. In addition to the architectural aspects of these changes, transport, trade, and tourism also play an important role. In this study, I would like to draw attention to the currently vacant, incorrectly used properties and opportunities for their use in the future.
