Book Summary:

This book provides in-depth results and case studies in innovation from actual work undertaken in collaboration with industry partners in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC). Scientific advances and innovative technologies in the sector are key to shaping the changes emerging as a result of Industry 4.0. Mainstream Building Information Management (BIM) is seen as a vehicle for addressing issues such as industry fragmentation, value-driven solutions, decision-making, client engagement, and design/process flow; however, advanced simulation, computer vision, Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, machine learning, deep learning, and linked data all provide immense opportunities for dealing with these challenges and can provide evidenced-based innovative solutions not seen before. These technologies are perceived as the “true” enablers of future practice, but only recently has the AEC sector recognised terms such as “golden key” and “golden thread” as part of BIM processes and workflows. This book builds on the success of a number of initiatives and projects by the authors, which include seminal findings from the literature, research and development, and practice-based solutions produced for industry. It presents these findings through real projects and case studies developed by the authors and reports on how these technologies made a real-world impact. The chapters and cases in the book are developed around these overarching themes: • BIM and AEC Design and Optimisation: Application of Artificial Intelligence in Design • BIM and XR as Advanced Visualisation and Simulation Tools • Design Informatics and Advancements in BIM Authoring • Green Building Assessment: Emerging Design Support Tools • Computer Vision and Image Processing for Expediting Project Management and Operations • Blockchain, Big Data, and IoT for Facilitated Project Management • BIM Strategies and Leveraged Solutions This book is a timely and relevant synthesis of a number of cogent subjects underpinning the paradigm shift needed for the AEC industry and is essential reading for all involved in the sector.

Book Summary:

With the encroachment of the Internet into nearly all aspects of work and life, it seems as though information is everywhere. However, there is information and then there is correct, appropriate, and timely information. While we might love being able to turn to Wikipedia® for encyclopedia-like information or search Google® for the thousands of links on a topic, engineers need the best information, information that is evaluated, up-to-date, and complete. Accurate, vetted information is necessary when building new skyscrapers or developing new prosthetics for returning military veterans While the award-winning first edition of Using the Engineering Literature used a roadmap analogy, we now need a three-dimensional analysis reflecting the complex and dynamic nature of research in the information age. Using the Engineering Literature, Second Edition provides a guide to the wide range of resources available in all fields of engineering. This second edition has been thoroughly revised and features new sections on nanotechnology as well as green engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. Engineers have an effect, directly and indirectly, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. Comprehensive and up to date, with expert chapter authors, this book fills a gap in the literature, providing critical information in a user-friendly format.

Book Summary:

Cam follower mechanisms are versatile mechanisms for obtaining complex motion outputs. Cams are also having vast range of applications due to their flexibility in operations, as they may easily be replaced, are adjustable and changeable for timing or for different motion requirements. The kinematic behavior of follower establishes the basic suitability of cam for the given application. The cam profile curves are mainly responsible, at the core, for proper operation of the cam follower mechanism, as they are the main input of the cam follower system. Synthetic curves, which are generated, parametrically, through a set of known data points with desired number of curve segments, may be proved to be a major improvement over the traditional trigonometric and polynomial cam profile curves. In present work Hermite and Bèzier curves are studied for their effect on the kinematic behavior of follower, when used as cam profile curves. Both the curves are generated by varying their different curve parameters, viz. length and direction of tangent vector for Hermite curves, and number of control points with their different positions for Bèzier curves. The kinematic behavior of follower is simulated for cam profiles using these synthetic curves in MATLAB. The resulting follower displacements, velocities, accelerations and jerks are analyzed and comparative study is performed with the kinematic behavior of cycloidal cam profile. It is observed that the Hermite curve, when used as a cam profile, has caused 28.32% improved (i.e. reduced) maximum acceleration of follower than that obtained for cycloidal curve, while deviating from cycloidal cam profile by a maximum instantaneous difference in displacement of follower by 4.95 %. At the same time Bèzier curve has facilitated continuous jerk of follower, which is not, at all, possible by using a cycloidal curve. Thus, it is finally concluded that the synthetic curves, when used as cam profile, are providing better kinematic behaviour of cam follower mechanism, with lower maximum velocities, lower maximum accelerations, and lower maximum values of other undesirable higher order kinematic characteristic terms with the flexibility of shape control and better support for CAD/CAM applications. This Ebook is a master's dissertation on 'Cam Profile Analysis and Simulation using Synthetic Curves' submitted in September, 2013.

Book Summary:

This book deals with the problems related to planning motion laws and t- jectories for the actuation system of automatic machines, in particular for those based on electric drives, and robots. The problem of planning suitable trajectories is relevant not only for the proper use of these machines, in order to avoid undesired e?ects such as vibrations or even damages on the mech- ical structure, but also in some phases of their design and in the choice and sizing of the actuators. This is particularly true now that the concept of “el- tronic cams” has replaced, in the design of automatic machines, the classical approach based on “mechanical cams”. The choice of a particular trajectory has direct and relevant implications on several aspects of the design and use of an automatic machine, like the dimensioning of the actuators and of the reduction gears, the vibrations and e?orts generated on the machine and on the load, the tracking errors during the motion execution. For these reasons, in order to understand and appreciate the peculiarities of the di?erent techniques available for trajectory planning, besides the ma- ematical aspects of their implementation also a detailed analysis in the time and frequency domains, a comparison of their main properties under di?erent points of view, and general considerations related to their practical use are reported.
