Engineering Design and Mathematical Modelling Book Excerpt:

Engineering Design and Mathematical Modelling: Concepts and Applications consists of chapters that span the Engineering design and mathematical modelling domains. Engineering design and mathematical modelling are key tools/techniques in the Science, Technology and Innovation spheres. Whilst engineering design is concerned with the creation of functional innovative products and processes, mathematical modelling seeks to utilize mathematical principles and concepts to describe and control real world phenomena. Both of these can be useful tools for spurring and hastening progress in developing countries. They are also areas where Africa needs to ‘skill-up’ in order to build a technological base. The chapters in this book cover the relevant research trends in the fields of both engineering design and mathematical modelling. This book was originally published as a special issue of the African Journal of Science, Technology, Innovation and Development.

Material Design Book Excerpt:

The approach of "Informing Architecture by Materiality" opens the way to an innovative use of materials in the design professions. Taking material qualities and properties such as texture, elasticity, transparency and fluidity as a point of departure, the concept described and employed here transcends the conventional definitions of building materials. Instead, the focus is on a multitude of material operations, like folding and bending, carving and cutting, weaving and knitting, mirroring and screening. The featured design strategies and methods address established and "new" materials alike. They are applied both to the scale of the detail and the entire building. The examples comprise prototype structures as well as large building projects. Eightchapters deal with surfaces and layers, joints and juctions, weaving and texturing, nanoscale transformations, responsiveness, the integration of ephemeral factors like wind and light as well as material collections providing professional resources. Written by reknowned experts in this field, the book features many examples from international contemporary architecture. The introductory part provides the conceptual background, while a final chapter describes consequences for pressing issues of today, like sustainability or life cycle assessment.

Designing with Natural Materials Book Excerpt:

In a world now forced to address the issues of sustainability, environmental impact, and the widespread pollution of land and oceans with manmade materials, alternative resources must be considered for the future of the planet. A vast array of natural materials is available throughout the world with properties that are often superior to the man-made alternatives. Designing with Natural Materials fills the gap between the current scientific knowledge of the use of natural materials and product design and acts as a bridge between the two disciplines. The book serves as an introduction to natural materials within the context of design. The chapters include case studies, research, and a historical perspective. It develops ideas of designing with natural materials in specific areas and looks to the future of new biobased materials and how these will influence design. The work offers insight to designers of biobased materials across a range of different design disciplines while also providing insights to scientists on the process of design, production, and the needs of a material beyond those traditionally analyzed in the laboratory. The final chapters touch on the use of bioinspiration and biomimicry in the development and use of biobased materials and how natural design will influence both material design and products in the future. The book will be of interest to engineers, scientific researchers, professional designers, students, those working in industry who are considering using natural materials as an alternative to current unsustainable options, and anyone who has an interest in the subject.

The Architecture Annual 2007 2008 Delft University of Technology Book Excerpt:

The Faculty of Architecture at Delft University of Technology is recognized as one of the most dynamic and innovative research and design schools in Europe and its graduation projects never fail to provide a new angle on design. The Architecture Annual offers a selection of articles charting the school's progress in research and education. This is the second year that The Architecture Annual is themebased: 'Realize' can be regarded in two ways, firstly in the sense of to make real or to accomplish, secondly in the sense of to comprehend or to become aware of. The themes of this and the previous edition ('Architectural Footprints') introduce a duality with regard to the event of 13 May 2008. The physical footprint of the faculty building has vanished: there is now a void where the building once stood in the TU campus. And though this disappearance of the tangible is inevitable, the faculty and the thinking on education there live on. The articles in the present The Architecture Annual make this clear, but sometimes also underline the impact of the fire and the organization of the new permanent accommodation for the faculty. 'Realize' is therefore incorporated in the fairly literal essence of the theme, but also included in a number of papers that bridge the gap between theory and practice and are therefore able to illustrate the research done at the faculty.
