Use of State-of-the-Art Methods in the Architectural Design Process

Abstract

The following article summarizes a research with the intention to demonstrate the challenges that architecture students need to face throughout their design tasks. The study is also meant to contribute to the cognition of state-of-the-art methods that can help students with these emerging problems.

The main source of information was a questionnaire. Students were asked about the duties they accomplish when completing a design, about their adopted design methods and about their thoughts on a future profession. As a complement, Interviews were conducted with professional architects from local studios. This allowed a deeper insight into the requirements that the two sides lay down for each other.

The research charts how computer aided design could affect the difficulties that appear in the architectural design process.

Optimised Mix Design for Normal Strength and High Performance Concrete Using Particle Packing Method

Abstract

This paper presents the details of optimized mix design for normal strength and high performance concrete using particle packing method. A critical review of mix design methods have been carried out for normal strength concrete using American Concrete Institute (ACI) and Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) methods highlighting the similarities and differences towards attaining a particular design compressive strength. Mix design for M30 and M40 grades of concrete have been carried out using ACI, BIS and particle packing methods. Optimization of concrete mix has been carried out by means of particle packing method using EMMA software, which employs modified Anderson curve to adjust the main proportions. Compressive strength is evaluated for the adjusted proportions and it is observed that the mixes designed by particle packing method estimates compressive strength closer to design compressive strength. Further, particle packing method has been employed to optimize the ingredients of high performance concrete and experiments have been carried out to check the design adequacy of the desired concrete compressive strength.

Robust Control System Design for Small UAV Using H2-Optimization

Abstract

Unmanned aerial vehicles are famous for their wide range of applications. In D3 (Dirty-Dull-Dangerous) UAV applications flight conditions may vary on large scale. External disturbances like atmospheric turbulences and gusts may be subjected to UAV, and as a result, UAV flight mission might be conducted with high level of the degradation of the accuracy. Sensor noises are also present, and theirs negligence might lead to improper dynamic performances of the closed loop control systems. Uncertainties of the control systems being structured or unstructured may tend the closed loop control system to stability bounds. In worst case, uncertainties may destabilize closed loop control systems. The purpose of the author is to present a robust controller design method called H2-optimal design ensuring stability of the closed loop control systems with simultaneous dynamic performances predefined for the closed loop control system.
