The definition of a software engineering body of knowledge (SWEBOK) is an important milestone in the history of the software engineering discipline. One of the main questions that might be asked in front of such knowledge definition is: to which extent does my knowledge cover this body of knowledge ? In a more general perspective we can be interested in measuring the coverage of any entity w.r.t. the SWEBOK. It could be a book, a paper, a course, . . . . In this paper, we present the method we defined to answer such question, the tool we developed and the experiments we did with the lessons learned. [less ▲]

A new method is proposed for characterising local urban patterns at the scale of a large urban region. The approach overcomes the difficulties of surface-based representations of built-up morphologies and provides an efficient way to account for the proximity of built and non-built land. The strength of the approach resides in the direct use of the coordinates of each building, a very parsimonious input of external parameters, and a local spatial statistical perspective. The method consists in, first, constructing and clumping the Minimum Spanning Tree (MST) that links each building to its neighbours in order to obtain connected urban and suburban graph subsets, and second, measuring a Local Index of Spatial Association (LISA) on inter-building distances in order to characterise patterns. The method differentiates heterogeneous settlements from statistically significant homogeneous clusters with either long or short connections between buildings. The method is applied to the Southern periphery of Brussels (Belgium). [less ▲]

One of the most promising cement alternatives are geopolymer cements. The term “geopolymer” was mentioned for the first time by Davidovits1 and classifies all forms of inorganic polymeric material synthesised by chemical reaction of aluminosilicates and an alkaline activating solution. The production of geopolymer binder comprises in two main procedures: calcination and geopolymerisation. The synthesised geopolymer shows interesting characteristics like good mechanical properties, high strength and good durability. [less ▲]

Abstract The mechanical characteristics of dissimilar Al-Cu connections, joined by a novel, robust laser braze-welding process are reported. A ber laser is used in combination with a 2D galvoscanner to provide spatial power modulation by superposed circular beam oscillation. With the help of statistical experimental design, a broad range of processing parameters has been inves- tigated in order to understand their e ects on the joint characteristics. A maximum shear strength of 121 MPa has been detected within the scope of the experiments. [less ▲]

In web opening regions, a significant share of the global shear force is redistributed from the perforated web of the steel beam to the reinforced concrete (RC) slab. This redistribution leads to vertical forces in the shear connectors close to both edges of the opening and influences the internal forces in the steel beam and the RC slab over a length of approximately three times the opening length a0. The global shear failure in the web opening region is affected by the rather brittle behavior of the concrete and is either characterized by a diagonal shear cracking failure of the RC slab, or a local bending failure at the opening edges, or vertical connector failure (concrete break-out) at the ends of the opening. This paper is intended to clarify the structural behavior of web opening regions and proposes easy-to-use models that make it possible to analyze the local internal forces of each partial beam in a mechanically consistent manner. Based on these models, a novel design procedure is presented, that allows efficient design and dimensioning of web openings as well as prediction of shear resistance and failure mode. [less ▲]

Various heterogeneous materials with multiple scales and multiple phases in the microstructure have been produced in the recent years. We consider a mechanical failure due to the initiation and propagation of cracks in places of high pore density in the microstructures. A multi-scale method based on the asymptotic homogenization theory together with the mesh superposition method (s-version of FEM) is presented for modeling of cracks. The homogenization approach is used on the global domain excluding the vicinity of the crack where the periodicity of the microstructures is lost and this approach fails. The multiple scale method relies on efficient combination of both macroscopic and microscopic models. The mesh superposition method uses two independent (global and local) finite element meshes and the concept of superposing the local mesh onto the global continuous mesh in such a way that both meshes not necessarily coincide. The homogenized material model is considered on the global mesh while the crack is analyzed in the local domain (patch) which allows to have an arbitrary geometry with respect to the underlying global finite elements. Numerical experiments for biomorphic cellular ceramics with porous microstructures produced from natural wood are presented. [less ▲]

The resistance of a typical shear connection with headed shear studs in a composite beam is analysed in the normal case in accordance with EN 1994-1-1. The reducing effect of a trapezoidal metal decking onto the ultimate load bearing capacity is considered with empirically derived reduction factors and equations, which have been developed in the last century between the late 70th and the early 80th. The RFCS research project “DISCCO” investigated the shear stud resistance with novel types of steel decking. In many cases, the shear resistance, which was predicted by EN 1994-1-1 was not reached in tests. In the respective experiments with composite beams and deep decking, a concrete cone failure mode was identified and not a pure shear failure of the stud. This failure mode acted in combination with the load bearing capacity of the shear stud, which formed one or two plastic hinges in the shaft - depending on the available geometry. Based on these observations, new equations have been developed to predict the shear connection’s resistance with more accurcy. The yield hinge mechanism of the shear stud, which was developed by Lungershausen, was extended by the above mentioned load bearing component ‘concrete cone’. The formulae consider the geometry of the stud and the steel decking, the material strength of the stud and of the concrete material. The statistical evaluation of the developed equations shows a good accordance with test results. [less ▲]
