Woody Materials Library I was disappointed with the lack of cool wood-grained materials for sketchup, so I threw this set together, maybe its useful. Of course it could use some work… To use this. 1. Extract the library (.zip) onto your computer somewhere. 2. Emerging Construction Technologies The purpose of this sites is to present Emerging Construction Technologies that could produce a "High Impact" in the construction industry. The technologies are divided into five areas: Civil, Mechanical, Internet-based, Electrical, and Other. Each technology is presented in fact sheets describing: The Need, The Technology, The Benefits, Status, Barriers, Points of Contact, and References. This site should be viewed with Microsoft's Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher. Please make sure that your browser is enabled for Java Scripts.

Small Spaces Good Design For Living in Small ApartmentsAs people migrate to smaller spaces, good design helps a lot. This is something they figured out in Europe long ago, that if you don't have a lot of horizontal room you can go vertical. Tumidei in Italy makes some of the nicest stuff, like this unit with lots of storage under the bed. This unit just raises the floor high enough for beds to slide under.

A Metal Coating That Repairs Itself Airplanes, cars, and ships that don’t corrode are the promise of self-healing paint coatings and polymer materials. Now researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation and the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany have come up with a metal coating that may be able to repair itself after sustaining damage. The self-healing metal can be electroplated, which opens up applications in construction, car manufacturing, and other industries that use or manufacture steel machines. (Nuts, bolts, and screws made of steel, which is susceptible to corrosion, are already electroplated with rustproof metals such as zinc and chromium.) The new coating is around 15 micrometers thick and contains polymer capsules a few hundred nanometers in diameter. When the plating is scratched, the capsules should burst and release their contents - which could be a polymer capable of sealing the crack, or corrosion-inhibiting liquids.

Building Owners Driving BIM — The Letterman Digital Arts Center Story: AECbytes "Building the Future" Article AECbytes "Building the Future" Article (September 30, 2006) Mieczyslaw (Mitch) Boryslawski, Associate AIA Founder, View By View, Inc. Our world has changed, our economy has changed, and so has the design and construction industry. It is going through an overhaul never seen before by adapting smart parametric digital technology that in the past was used only by the automotive, shipbuilding, and aircraft industries. Many of the lessons and experiences learned in these industries are being transferred to the more static design and construction industry. Building owners are pioneering this rediscovered technology, commonly referred to as building information modeling, or BIM.
