Информационное моделирование зданий — PLMpedia Материал из PLMpedia Информационное моделирование зданий (англ. Building Information Modeling, BIM) — процесс генерации и управления данными о здании (или иной строительной конструкции) на протяжении его (ее) жизненного цикла. BIM состоит в использовании средств архитектурно-строительного проектирования для создания единой информационной модели здания, над которой могут работать все команды, участвующие в разработке строительного проекта. Информационная модель здания содержит информацию о его геометрии, пространственных отношениях, географическом расположении, свойствах материалов и т.п. Спецификацией стандарта BIM и созданием программных средств для доступа к разрабатываемому формату занимается некоммерческий альянс buildingSMART. Краткая история терминологии В конце 1970х – начале 1980х эта концепция развивалось параллельно в Старом и Новом Свете, причем в США чаще всего употреблялся термин «Building Product Model», а в Европе (особенно в Финляндии) – «Product Information Model».

Building a Super Robust Robot Hand German researchers have built an anthropomorphic robot hand that can endure collisions with hard objects and even strikes from a hammer without breaking into pieces. In designing the new hand system, researchers at the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics, part of the German Aerospace Center (DLR), focused on robustness. They may have just built the toughest robot hand yet. The DLR hand has the shape and size of a human hand, with five articulated fingers powered by a web of 38 tendons, each connected to an individual motor on the forearm. The main capability that makes the DLR hand different from other robot hands is that it can control its stiffness. The video below shows the fingers moving and the hand getting hit by a hammer and a metal bar: The DLR team didn’t want to build an anatomically correct copy of a human hand, as other teams have. Another key element in the DLR design is a spring mechanism connected to each tendon. Why build such a super strong hand? More photos: Images: DLR
