From graphene production en masse to metamaterials that rethink the form and function of conventional construction mediums, here are five innovations with the potential to change architecture today, tomorrow, and beyond. Unbreakable Materials Julia Greer, a materials science and mechanics professor at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), uses two-photon lithography to create precise polymer nanotrusses that can be coated in materials like metal or ceramic, hollowed out to remove the polymer, and then stacked in a fractal construction—essentially a nanotruss made of nanotrusses. The newly created material couples the structural and material properties of its medium, such as metal or ceramic, to possess previously unheard of characteristics including flaw-tolerance and shape memory.

Architectural Graphic Standards - Part 2. Last week we took a look at an article about “architectural graphic standards” … and I kicked that article off by stating how an architect draws is a reflection of many things … that you can frequently tell the priorities of a firm just by looking at the quality of their drawings.

Architectural Graphic Standards - Part 2

I stand by that comment and think that clean and easy to read architectural drawings do more than just make me feel good about my artistic side, they help convey information to the people you are creating the drawings for in the first place. I take a great deal of pride in how my drawings look and this it isn’t just me patting myself on the back, this is due to the feedback I have received from contractors and clients on how easy my drawings are to read and to navigate. And for all of you who hate the chisel fonts I use in my drawings, there isn’t an argument you can make that will convince me that Arial Narrow (or some other clean and easy to read font) would be a better choice.

Invest in a blender with at least an 800-watt motor. (Vitamix is the gold standard.) 2. Prepare frozen fruit ahead to save time. 3. Concrete degradation. Concrete degradation may have various causes.

Concrete degradation

Concrete can be damaged by fire, aggregate expansion, sea water effects, bacterial corrosion, calcium leaching, physical damage and chemical damage (from carbonatation, chlorides, sulfates and distilled water). This process adversely affects concrete exposed to these damaging stimuli. Aggregate expansion[edit] Various types of aggregate undergo chemical reactions in concrete, leading to damaging expansive phenomena. ConstructionTypeDefinitions. Banana Banana Bread Video.

What is a Moment?

The Moment of a force is a measure of its tendency to cause a body to rotate about a specific point or axis. This is different from the tendency for a body to move, or translate, in the direction of the force. In order for a moment to develop, the force must act upon the body in such a manner that the body would begin to twist. Study guides.

If you're working a job you love and can leave behind once you walk out of the office each night, then congratulations - you'll probably never have to study again in your life!

Watch: 9 science-backed tips to help you study smarter, not harder

But for the rest of us still at school or university, or who need to research to keep on top of our jobs (hello, ScienceAlert), we're always looking for ways to get more out of our study sessions. Luckily the boys at AsapSCIENCE have our backs, and have broken down the nine best science-backed study tips to help us get in the zone quicker, and get better results with minimum effort.

To start with, forget about trying to learn everything you need in one giant study session. Research has shown that our brains are better at coding information into synapses over 20 to 30 minute sessions across several weeks, rather than in one long session.

This document provides a comparison between the updated ADA Accessibility Guidelines, the original ADA Standards, and the International Building Code (2003 edition).

The comparison is ordered according to the format and sequence of the new ADA Accessibility Guidelines, which the Board published in the Federal Register on July 23, 2004 (column 1). Corresponding provisions in the U.S. Department of Justice's Standards for Accessible Design * (column 2), which are based on the original ADA Accessibility Guidelines, and the International Building Code ** (column 3) are reordered for side-by-side comparison.
