A small phi-design propeller is able to circulate a million gallon water storage tank in the form of a torus.

An international, interdisciplinary project This international, interdisciplinary project brings together archaeologists, art historians, and cultural resource managers with experts in geosciences, remote sensing, photogrammetry, 3D modeling, and virtual reality from various institutions in Germany, the US, Italy, and Honduras. Case Study: UNESCO World Heritage site and ancient Maya city of Copan, Honduras The digital collections used to demonstrate the system contain basic information for other ancient Maya cities in Central America, but focus on the archaeology of Honduras and specifically Copan.

Acropole d'Athènes The Propylaia, famous already in antiquity for its brilliant coffered ceilings and the unique design of the monumental entrance to the sanctuary of Athena, was a work of the architect Mnesikles (437-432 B.C.).
