The code portion of this document covers the design and construction of structural concrete used in buildings and
where applicable in nonbuilding structures.
Among the subjects covered are: drawings and specifications; inspection; materials; durability requirements; concrete
quality, mixing, and placing; formwork; embedded pipes; construction joints; reinforcement details; analysis and
design; strength and serviceability; flexural and axial loads; shear and torsion; development and splices of reinforcement; ...
This section provides requirements for all methods of construction of power, electric, and miniature boilers; high temperature water boilers, heat recovery steam generators, and certain fired pressure vessels to be used in stationary service;...
You’ve heard the saying, “If you want something done right, do it yourself.” Actually, most Internet browsers are done right. Chances are, you’re comfortable with yours. Yet, you may want to build your own. You don’t have to start from scratch—you can start with the Browser Construction Kit on the CD-ROM that comes with Internet Explorer Construction Kit for Dummies. Best of all, there’s no programming required.
This Section provides requirements for design, fabrication, installation and inspection of steam heating, hot water heating, hot water supply boilers, and potable water heaters intended for low pressure service that are directly fired by oil,...
Within half a century, a new branch of mathematics mathematical theory of planning-formed and flourished due to economic urgently required to implement the optimal targets: most, least, the fastest, cheapest, best, ... today, the rapid development of electronic computer engineering have made it possible to practice for design automation in many areas.
Subsection NE and provides a commentary on such requirements. Kamran's comments and interpretations of the rules are based on his several years of experience in design, analysis, and construction of containment vessels, as well as his participation in various ASME Code Committees.
Cable-stayed bridges are structural systems effectively composing cables, main girders and
towers. This bridge form has a beautiful appearance and easily fits in with the surrounding
environment due to the fact that various structural systems can be created by changing the
tower shapes and cable arrangements.
Cable-stayed bridges are structures that require a high degree of technology for both design and
construction, and hence demand sophisticated structural analysis and design techniques when
compared with other types of conventional bridges.
This Subsection contains requirements for the material, design, fabrication, examination, testing and overpressure protection of items which are intended to conform to the requirements for Class 1 construction.
This Division contains requirements for the material, design, construction, fabrication, testing, examination, and overpressure protection of concrete containment structures, pre-stressed or reinforced.
Standard Practice for classification of soils and soil-aggregate mixtures for highway construction purposes practice covers a procedure for classifying mineral and organomineral soils into seven groups based on laboratory determination of particle-size distribution, liquid limit, an plasticity index. It may be used when precise engineering classification is required, especially for highway construction purposes. Evaluation of soils within each group is made bymeans of a group index, which is a value calculated from an empirical formula.
German case syncretism is often assumed to be the accidental by-product of historical development. This paper contradicts this claim and argues that the evolution of German case is driven by the need to optimize the cognitive effort and memory required for processing and interpretation. This hypothesis is supported by a novel kind of computational experiments that reconstruct and compare attested variations of the German deﬁnite article paradigm.
For natural language understanding, it is essential to reveal semantic relations between words. To date, only the IS-A relation has been publicly available. Toward deeper natural language understanding, we semiautomatically constructed the domain dictionary that represents the domain relation between Japanese fundamental words. This is the ﬁrst Japanese domain resource that is fully available. Besides, our method does not require a document collection, which is indispensable for keyword extraction techniques but is hard to obtain. ...
Every time there is a major financial crisis, and there have been
quite a number of them in history, we fi nd that there are many
who are ready to dwell on blaming people and institutions; and
only very few who offer really serious and constructive new proposals
for improvements in our fi nancial system that can repair the damage and
reduce the impact of future crises. It is much harder to do the latter, as it
requires coming to an understanding of the real origins of the crisis.
This code provides minimum requirements for
design and construction of structural concrete elements
of any structure erected under requirements of
the legally adopted general building code of which this
code forms a part. In areas without a legally adopted
building code, this code defines minimum acceptable
standards of design and construction practice.
This code shall govern in all matters pertain-ing to design, construction, anhd material properties wherever this code is in conflict with requirements contained in other standards referenced in this code.
The FCC uses the term cognitive to mean " adaptive" without requiring machine learning, This text coins the phrase " ideal cognitive radio ( iCR) " for a CR with autonomous machine learning, vision ( not just a camera ), and spoken or written language perception. There will be an exciting progression across aware, adaptive, and cognitive radio ( AACR ). Enjoy!
