Elastic Load Balancing Application Load Balancers: Documentation Team
Elastic Load Balancing Classic Load Balancers: Documentation Team
Provides structural engineers with the knowledge and practical tools needed to perform structural designs for wind that incorporate major technological, conceptual, analytical and computational advances achieved in the last two decades. With clear explanations and documentation of the concepts, methods, algorithms, and software available for accounting for wind loads in structural design, it also describes the wind engineer´s contributions in sufficient detail that they can be effectively scrutinized by the structural engineer in charge of the design. Wind Effects on Structures: Modern Structural Design for Wind, 4th Edition is organized in four sections. The first covers atmospheric flows, extreme wind speeds, and bluff body aerodynamics. The second examines the design of buildings, and includes chapters on aerodynamic loads; dynamic and effective wind-induced loads; wind effects with specified MRIs; low-rise buildings; tall buildings; and more. The third part is devoted to aeroelastic effects, and covers both fundamentals and applications. The last part considers other structures and special topics such as trussed frameworks; offshore structures; and tornado effects. Offering readers the knowledge and practical tools needed to develop structural designs for wind loadings, this book: Points out significant limitations in the design of buildings based on such techniques as the high-frequency force balance Discusses powerful algorithms, tools, and software needed for the effective design for wind, and provides numerous examples of application Discusses techniques applicable to structures other than buildings, including stacks and suspended-span bridges Features several appendices on Elements of Probability and Statistics; Peaks-over-Threshold Poisson-Process Procedure for Estimating Peaks; estimates of the WTC Towers´ Response to Wind and their shortcomings; and more Wind Effects on Structures: Modern Structural Design for Wind, 4th Edition is an excellent text for structural engineers, wind engineers, and structural engineering students and faculty.
This book for the first time illustrates the history and significance of rammed earth construction in Central Europe, particularly in Switzerland, using historical examples to investigate the potential of that building technique for contemporary construction. As such, it represents a pioneering comprehensive documentation that will contribute to safeguarding existing architectural monuments, while also providing the foundation for further research. Based on that evidence, the editors investigate the material´s potential for modern day edifices, especially from the perspective of regional architecture claiming to establish identity and save resources. Due to the material´s advantages - rammed earth is strong, durable and non-combustible as well as providing quality indoor air conditions - it was already used in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, disadvantages such as on site weather-dependency can be circumvented by using prefabricated elements. Possible load bearing problems solely due to pressure can be bypassed by pre-stressing the structure. By carrying out measures such as these, the building material - being ecologically sustainable and completely recyclable - will become an attractive alternative for contemporary construction methods.
The Eclpise Modeling Framework (EMF) is a framework and code generation facility that lets you define a model in any of these forms--Java interfaces, UML diagram, or XML Schema. EMF doesn´t require a completely different methodology or any sophisticated modeling tools. All you need to get started with EMF are the Eclipse Java Development Tools. EMF relates modeling concepts directly to their implementations, thereby bringing to Eclipse-and Java developers in general-the benefits of modeling with a low cost of entry. Unlike most tools of this type, EMF is truly integrated with and tuned for efficient programming. It answers the often-asked question, ´´Should I model or should I program?´´ with a resounding, ´´Both.´´ This book, written by the lead architects of EMF, provides both an introduction and tutorial to how to leverage and work with this powerful framework. In addition to the new coverage (see overflow page) this book provides: · A basic overview of the most important concepts in EMF and modeling. · Analysis of the most important framework classes and generator patterns including insightful discussions of various design alternatives. · Examples of many common framework customizations and programming techniques.

Diagrids are load-bearing structures made of steel diagonal grids. They were first used in the great buildings of the turn of the millennium, such as the Swiss Re Tower in London (´´The Gherkin?) and the Hearst Magazine Tower in New York City. Dagrids owe their ensuing popularity not only to their stunning aesthetic value, but also to their very tangible benefits: lateral loading capacity, a massive saving of material, a significant gain in open, usable floor area, and increased flexibility. At its opening in 2014, the Leadenhall Building in London will be the first skyscraper without a bearing inner core?thanks to a diagrid structure. This book explains comprehensively for the first time all of the aspects involved in this new bearing structure. The author, experienced in teaching, research, and practice (recent publication: Understanding Steel Design. An Architectural Design Manual , 2011), has tracked the development of this technology from its beginnings and employs photographic documentation of the construction phases of many diagrid structures. Diagrids sind Tragwerke aus diagonalen Stahlfachwerkgittern, die zuerst bei spektakulären Großbauten der Jahrtausendwende wie dem Swiss Re Tower in London (´´die Gurke´´) und dem Hearst Magazine Tower in New York eingesetzt wurden. DieVerbreitung, die Diagrids seitdem gefunden haben, verdanken sie nicht nur ihrer atemberaubenden Ästhetik, sondern vor allem handfesten Vorteilen: einer massiven Materialersparnis, einem signifikanten Gewinn an frei nutzbarer Geschossfläche und einem Zuwachs an Flexibilität. Bei seiner Eröffnung 2014 wird das Leadenhall Building in London das erste Hochhaus ohne tragenden inneren Kern sein - dank des Diagrid-Tragwerks. Dieses Buch erklärt erstmals umfassend alle Aspekte dieses neuen Tragwerkssystems. Die in Lehre, Forschung und Praxis erfahrene Autorin (zuletzt Stahl verstehen. Entwerfen und Konstruieren mit Stahl , 2011) hat die Entwicklung der Technologie von Beginn an begleitet und greift für die detaillierte Darstellung auf fotografische Dokumentationen der Bauphasen zahlreicher Diagrid-Konstruktionen zurück.
