Gradient, Slope, Grade, Pitch, Rise Over Run Ratio Calculator

Slope, tilt or inclination can be expressed in three ways: 1) As a ratio of the rise to the run (for example 1 in 20) 2) As an angle (almost always in degrees) 3) As a percentage called the "grade" which is the (rise ÷ run) * 100. Of these 3 ways, slope is expressed as a ratio or a grade much more often than an actual angle and here's the reason why. Stating a ratio such as 1 in 20 tells you immediately that for every 20 horizontal units traveled, your altitude increases 1 unit. Stating this as a percentage, whatever horizontal distance you travel, your altitude increases by 5% of that distance.

Stating this as an angle of 2.8624 degrees doesn't give you much of an idea how the rise compares to the run. Calculating Grade By Measuring The Road Distance run = Square Root (15,844.95² - 396²) run = 15,840 feet. Furniture Symbol Library. Hardwood floors - prefinished hardwood flooring - Mirage Floors.

BIM Adoption Expands from 17% in 2007 to over 70% in 2012, According to New McGraw-Hill Construction Report - In The Fold. For the First Time, More Contractors are using BIM than Architects. MapGuide Project Home. BIM Uses. The Uses of BIM document, released in September 2013, is designed to communicate the BIM Uses classification system and BIM Use Purposes.

BIM Uses

The first portion of the document introduces the BIM Use classification systems. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the components of the classification system including the BIM Use Purposes and BIM Use Characteristics. The BIM Use Purpose Section includes a description of the objective of each of the BIM Uses. The BIM Use Characteristics section includes a description of the facility element, facility phase, discipline, and level of development. These sections are followed by a method for implementing the BIM Use Classification System. Twenty-five BIM Uses, organized by project phase of project development, were identified through numerous interviews with industry experts, analysis of implementation case studies, and review of literature.

It's been hectic, so first post is going to be a mixed bag of memories. RTC 2012 USA was brilliant. First of all the people. So many new friends and internet connections come alive in the flesh. I hope I can stay in touch with you all. England was all scattered showers & brief sunny periods. The building themselves are fascinating. That evening I saw my 3 cousins, who have lived their lives close to Barnsley where we grew up. The final weekend took me to London and some quality time with my youngest son. London has been doing a great job of inserting new high-tech interventions into historic locations this past few years.

View Range explained

Sooner or later. So why don’t we make it “Sooner”? Once you are comfortable in controlling the various parameters contained within the View Range control panel, you’ll be able to easily manipulate exactly what is displayed in your Plan & Reflected Ceiling Views. In the usual “Revit Zone style”, we’ll deal with the concept by means of a worked example.

So what I’m going to do first is set up a very simple building with some key levels in it. So here goes. And here are the Levels that are in this Project…. And if we take a look at a Plan View, we can see that we have placed a simple desk and 4 chairs on the ground floor. So let’s put the model aside for a moment and cover a bit of the theory. We find the View Range control panel by looking in the View Properties panel for a plan view. BIM/IPD Aus. BIM Planning. Practical BIM: What is this thing called LOD. There still seems to be some confusion about what LOD levels mean, and how they should be used.

practical BIM: What is this thing called LOD

I must say I have difficulty relating what I do and what I need whenever confronted with filling in an LOD table. If they are this difficult why are we using them? Are they really useful, or just a waste of our time? From what I can gather LOD was developed by Vicosoftware, a software company that produces construction costing software. The CADBIM Center.
