Core Wall Control System

Core Wall Control System

The Core Wall Control Survey System (CWCS) provides coordinates of form works in the design coordinates frame. As the construction can move due to different effects on the structure, the CWCS takes also into account the tilt offsets of the building main vertical axis. When the surveyor needs to operate on the building structures’ top to provide control of the formwork positions, he will check first the availability of the inclination sensors data and that the GNSS permanent reference station is well operating. The various components of the system are designing to operate continuously 24/7 but this is a good practice to check the status of the various components. It’s of his responsibility to ensure that all components are in operation during his intervention.

Baicalin regulates the dopamine system to control the core symptoms of ADHD

Baicalin regulates the dopamine system to control the core symptoms of ADHD

control the core symptoms of ADHD is the basic condi- tion for verifying our hypothesis. In previous studies, mov- ing distance and moving speed were often recorded by the open-field test method to evaluate the hyperactivity be- havior in ADHD [31]. The MWM can be used to test spatial learning in rodents, and it has been widely used to test the attention and learning abilities of SHR rats [32]. We evaluated the effects of baicalin on the regulation of behavior in SHRs. In accordance with previous studies, saline-treated SHRs showed increased moving distance and moving speed, which represents typical hyperactivity symptoms, compared with WKY rats, as shown in Tables 3 and 4. After treating the SHRs with baicalin and MPH, these rats showed significant reductions in locomotion. In tests of the spatial learning abilities of the SHR rats, the SHRs treated with MPH and baicalin (especially 150 mg/ kg and 100 mg/kg) were faster to find the platform and showed increased ratios in the target quadrant than the saline-treated SHRs (Tables 5 and 6). The typical trajector- ies showed that the SHRs treated with MPH and baicalin (especially 150 mg/kg and 100 mg/kg) presented signifi- cant thigmotaxis movement loci, which is a tendency to move closer to the wall, compared to the WKY rats, while the saline-treated SHRs displayed a chaotic movement tra- jectory (Figs. 1 and 3) [33]. The behavioral tests showed that treatment with MPH and baicalin (especially 150 mg/ kg and 100 mg/kg) significantly reduced the locomotion and increased the spatial learning abilities of SHRs com- pared with saline-treated SHRs, thus showing effects on the regulation of SHRs behavior.

Design complexity and fracture control in the equine hoof wall

Design complexity and fracture control in the equine hoof wall

respectively, of Fig. 9A) caused the advancing crack to deviate in two distinct directions (towards the upper right) in this specimen; one along the tubule axis (region Ib) and the other along the intertubular IF plane (region Ia). This fracture path is seen more easily in the illustration in Fig. 10, in which each test specimen is shown in a sample location within the hoof wall and then enlarged to show detail. The upper specimen in Fig. 10B illustrates the fracture path observed in the region I sample. The specimens in Fig. 10B are illustrated in their correct positions through the wall thickness. In Fig. 9B, the notched surface of a specimen from the middle (IIa and IIb) region is barely visible on the lower right side of the micrograph. Here, the crack deviated towards the circumferential axis of the wall (towards the upper left-hand side of the micrograph) and also began to follow the forward slope of the intertubular IF plane (refer to Fig. 6), passing through tubules as it progressed. This crack reorientation is seen as a twist of the fracture surface (illustrated for clarity in Fig. 10B) and results from the mid-wall crack diversion mechanism described previously. Fig. 9C shows the fracture surface of an outer hoof wall specimen (regions IIIa and IIIb). Here, the crack propagated from the upper left to lower right of the specimen, along the tubule axis (see Fig. 10B). Although region IIIa was structurally similar to the middle region, the strong L axis orientation of the outer (IIIb) tubular and intertubular components caused the crack to progress along the favored path parallel to the tubule axis. In general, regions with a high proportion of tubules showed fracture paths which followed the tubule axis (see Fig. 9A,C), whereas cracks initiated in regions dominated by intertubular material primarily followed the intertubular IF plane (Fig. 9A,B).

SoftCell: Taking Control of Cellular Core Networks

SoftCell: Taking Control of Cellular Core Networks

Each core switch is furthermore connected to a gate- way switch. The whole topology is composed of 10k 3 /4 base stations. For example, k = 8 (resp. k = 20) gives a network with 1280 (resp. 20000) base stations. For each topology, we assume that they are k different types of middleboxes. We randomly connect one instance of each type in each pod composing the aggregation layer and two instances of each type in the core layer. On top of this topology, we generate n policy paths for each base station to the gateway switch. A policy path tra- verses m randomly chosen middlebox instances. Finally, we measure the number of rules in each switch flow ta- ble. In the base case, we consider n = 1000, m = 5 and k = 8. We vary k, n and m to show how the switch state is affected by the number of service policy clauses, the policy length and the network size, respectively. Effect of number of service policy clauses: Fig- ure 8(a) shows the maximum and median size of the switch forwarding table with respect to the number of service policy clauses. We can see that switch table size increases linearly with the number of service policy clauses with a small slope (less than 2). In particular, to support 1000 service policy clauses (1.28 million pol- icy paths!), switches store a median of 1214 rules and a maximum of 1697 rules. Even to support 8000 service policy clauses, the maximum table size is only 13682. Observe that in practice ISPs may only need tens or hundreds of service policy clauses, meaning that Soft- Cell can be easily implemented on commodity switches. The good performance of SoftCell data plane is a direct consequence of its multi-dimensional aggregation (see Section 3) capability. Indeed, even if a service policy clause instantiates a policy path to each base station, the corresponding forwarding entries can be aggregated by prefix in the core layer provided that they traverse the same middlebox instance like CS1 in Figure 3(c). Similarly, in the aggregation layer, the forwarding en- tries corresponding to paths traversing the same mid- dlebox instance in a pod can be aggregated by prefix

QUANTUM STRUCTURED WALL DRAINAGE SYSTEM

QUANTUM STRUCTURED WALL DRAINAGE SYSTEM

The minimum size for adoptable foul sewers is specified as 150mm diameter and the flattest recommended gradient is 1:150 provided that at least 10 dwellings are connected to the system. ROUGHNESS VALUES The pipe roughness values to be used when calculating pipe sizes for adoptable sewers are given in the ‘Sewers for Adoption Manual’ (1.5mm for foul water and combined systems and 0.6mm for surface water systems). These values are to be applied to all types of pipe materials. For non-adoptable systems, where an opportunity exists to refine the hydraulic design to take account of the improved performance of PVCu pipe, the roughness values recommended in the Hydraulic Research Station Report (The Measurement of the Hydraulic Roughness of Slimed Sewer Pipes) should be used. In this situation, prior consultation should be carried out with the approving or specifying Authority over the selection of roughness values.

KOREFILL Cavity Wall Insulation System

KOREFILL Cavity Wall Insulation System

The required maximum U-values for external walls can be obtained in typical cavity wall constructions as indicated in Table 1. The U value of a completed wall will depend on the selected insulation thickness, the insulating value of the substrate masonry and its internal finish. Calculations of thermal transmittance (U value), including corrections for wall ties if required, should be carried out in accordance with I.S. EN ISO 6946 [9] and BRE report (BR 443) [10] Conventions for U-value calculations using a thermal conductivity of 50 W/m.K for mild steel wall ties wall ties and 17W/m.k for Stainless steel wall ties. Where the calculated wall U-value does not meet the relevant requirement of the Building Regulations, additional energy improvement measures will be required to meet the backstop elemental U-values outlined in TGD to Part L of the Building Regulations.

CODAC Core System Overview

CODAC Core System Overview

EPICS users should also take into account that it is an ITER’s objective to provide an integrated environment. As a result, there are some dependencies between ITER packages and imported packages. However, whenever possible, new ITER packages, such as I/O board support software, are intended to be shareable. Some ITER extensions, such as those in the Control System Studio applications, are also submitted in EPICS shared repositories (e.g. SourceForge) and should be obtained from these.

Control Plane Elasticity & Virtualization in the 4G Core

Control Plane Elasticity & Virtualization in the 4G Core

Categories of Virtual EPC Functions The 4G core (i.e., the EPC and surrounding applications) is not a monolithic entity, but is made up of many interworking applications. Figure 2 on the next page identifies three broad categories of 4G core functions that might be virtualized: the control plane (yellow), the data plane (red) and the services LAN (blue). The initial focus is on the control plane. Policy servers and subscriber databases, for example, are already server-based, and most vendors are now working to port their applications to COTS servers and VM environments. The application layer and control layer in IMS is also relatively well advanced. A number of vendors will offer IMS on COTS servers this year, and progressive operators are planning to use virtualized Telephony Application Servers (TAS) to introduce VoLTE in 2014.

Smarties: An Input System for Wall Display Development

Smarties: An Input System for Wall Display Development

c. Wall Native Cursors (server in Qt with OpenMPI, C++) Several pieces of software 6 allow sharing a mouse, keyboard and clipboard between computers. In the presence of a ren- dering wall cluster, one can use the mouse and keyboard of a computer outside the cluster to control different machines of the cluster by moving the cursor from the ”edge” of one screen to another. This allows interacting with the native window system of each machine for testing or admin purposes. Interface: We implemented such a software on top of Smar- ties and extended it further. An active puck moves the native cursor of the screen it is on, and the client’s touch area is used as a touch pad: one finger tap is a left click; two and three finger taps are middle and right clicks; tap and drag are a press and drag; and two moving fingers emulate a mouse wheel (with four directions). For text input the clients contain a popup keyboard, and buttons that emulate complete keyboard shortcuts that appear often (e.g. CTRL+Z). In the wall applica- tion, we forward the pointer/key events to the slave machines, and we added a transparent overlay covering each screen to render large cursors at the position of the pucks (larger than the native cursors), that are visible at a distance.

CENTRIA FORMABOND Metal Composite Wall System

CENTRIA FORMABOND Metal Composite Wall System

The FormaBond ® Wall System provides high-performance drained and back-ventilated rainscreen design. CENTRIA's patent-pending dry joinery eliminates unsightly wet seals and provides optimum venting to allow wall cavities to dry effectively while prohibiting the entry of rain water, thus reducing the chance of entrapped moisture, material degradation and mold. Expanses of exterior metal cladding require an appearance of flatness that is not demanded of masonry or other building materials. Panel flatness in the CENTRIA FormaBond ® metal wall system panel is assured by the combination of composite construction, and the addition of panel stiffeners bonded to the back of the panel when required.

Seismic Behavior of Hybrid Coupled Wall System

Seismic Behavior of Hybrid Coupled Wall System

the wall members. These combined effects indicates that a high CR may result in an impractical design scenario. Research reported by El-Tawil et al (2002b) on 12- story coupled wall systems (Figure 3a) quantifies the effects of the CR. System with high CR (CR≥60%) had more widespread cracking in the upper portions of the wall piers and suffered earlier crushing failure of the wall compared to system with lower coupling ratios. At the other extreme, co coupling at all (CR=0%) can also lead to inefficient and comparatively poor behavior. For examples, of all the prototypes considered in the reasearch, the system without any coupling experienced the highest base wall rotations, story drfit, shear distortions and deflections, in addition to experiencing concrete crushing in the plastic hinge region. System with coupling ratios 30% to 45% performed best amongst the systems considered and were most economical in the sense that they required less steel and concrete materials. Applying performance based design approcah, Harrie and McNiece (2006) developed an efficient design for two 30-story reinforced concrete structure having CR value 67% and 78%. In this design, five coupling beam details were distributed over the height (Figure 3b). They recommend grouping coupling beams and allowing for vertical redistribution of coupling beam forces in order to minimize demands on the wall piers while continuing to provide coupling action consistent with the expected behavior of the system. Xuan et al (2007) design an efficient reinforced concrete 15-story structure using three groups of coupling beams having the largest capacities in the lower one half of the wall height (Figure 3c). The resulting CR for this structure was approximately 80%. Xuan and Shahrooz (2005) also recommended grouping coupling beams based on the distribution of coupling beam shear demand over the building height. In a case where uniform wall and concrete beam details were provide, Harries et al (2004b) demonstrate the design of a ten story structure having a CR 74%.
