[en] In this report are collected various paper referred to the quality of project in bio-architecture: innovative energetic technologies, eco-compatible materials and some case study
[it]In questo rapporto vengono dicussi i temi del progetto e della qualita' architettonica in uno scenario profondamente cambiato e in grande evoluzione. I tre argomenti illustrati riguardano: la progettazione della riqualificazione urbana, l'abitazione contemporanea, la compatibilita' bioecologica
[en] Nanoscale devices such as carbon nanotube and nanowires based transistors, memristors and molecular devices are expected to play an important role in the development of new computing architectures. While their size represents a decisive advantage in terms of integration density, it also raises the critical question of how to efficiently address large numbers of densely integrated nanodevices without the need for complex multi-layer interconnection topologies similar to those used in CMOS technology. Two-terminal programmable devices in crossbar geometry seem particularly attractive, but suffer from severe addressing difficulties due to cross-talk, which implies complex programming procedures. Three-terminal devices can be easily addressed individually, but with limited gain in terms of interconnect integration. We show how optically gated carbon nanotube devices enable efficient individual addressing when arranged in a crossbar geometry with shared gate electrodes. This topology is particularly well suited for parallel programming or learning in the context of neuromorphic computing architectures.
[en] This paper presents sky luminosity data for Rio de Janeiro City, useful to be used in daylighting design in architecture. The data are presented as monthly graphics that correlate sunshine-hours with the frequency of occurrence during the day of a specific type of sky, that would present one of five defined characteristics (among clear and overcast sky). These results were derived from the knowledge of daily solar radiation and sunshine-hours data, for every day for a twelve year period. (author). 10 refs, 13 figs, 16 tabs
[en] This paper will focus on how the emerging scientific discipline of biomimetics can bring new insights into the field of architecture. An analysis of both architectural and biological methodologies will show important aspects connecting these two. The foundation of this paper is a case study of convertible structures based on elastic plant movements.
[en] Residential sector is responsible of a third of total energy consumption in Italy and 30-40% of CO2 emission. An energy efficient buildings reduce cost and save energy and emission. The energy recovery is possible also with bioclimatic architecture that represents a contribution at the economic and environmental balance
[it]Il settore edilizio e' responsabile di circa un terzo dei consumi finali di energia in Italia e del 30/40% delle emissioni di CO2. Rendere un edificio piu' efficiente dal punto di vista energetico significa risparmiare non solo denaro e ridurre eventuali effetti negativi sullo stato di salute dei suoi abitanti ma anche ridurre consumi ed emissioni. Il risparmio reso possibile da una maggiore attenzione all'architettura bioclimatica rappresenterebbe un contributo significativo al cambiamento di un bilancio che ha pesanti conseguenze economiche ed ambientali
[en] Radiological Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) have only relatively recently become abundant. Many hospitals have made the transition to PACS about a decade ago. During that decade requirements and available technology have changed considerably. In this paper we look at factors that influence the design of tomorrow's systems, especially those in larger multidisciplinary hospitals. We discuss their impact on PACS architecture (a technological perspective) as well as their impact on radiology (a management perspective). We emphasize that many of these influencing factors originate outside radiology and that radiology has little impact on these factors. That makes it the more important for managers in radiology to be aware of architectural aspects and it may change cooperation of radiology with, among others, the hospital's central IT department.
[en] On site we will develop the activities that are carried out in the construction of metallic structures, for later, to analyze the different risks and safety and protection measures that may entail such activities, taking into account the material and human resources that may be necessary, as well as the risks that its use may cause.
[en] A review of recent results concerning the DC characterization of FD- and Double Gate SOI MOSFET's and FinFETs in modern CMOS technologies is given. By proper extraction techniques, distinction between the different interaction mechanisms is done. Parameter extraction conducted at room and low temperature clearly indicates that the mobility is directly impacted by shrinking the gate length in sub 100nm architectures. (author)
