In recent years, half of the newly constructed building floor areas in the world are built in China, thus it is important and interesting to know the Chinese design codes for buildings and compare them with Eurocodes, which are one of the most advanced design codes in the world. Funded by “Erasmus+ Strategic Partnerships” the project “AVEC BNT” was started in 2016 to compare the design codes mainly related to concrete structures and composite structures. This script is the main intellectual outputs from this project. It comprises codes background analysis, direct codes terms comparison and design examples. The script covers most of the design topics related to design of concrete structures and composite structure for building design as well as the design basics such as safety concept. It is a common achievements of students, researchers and professors from different universities and instructions of different countries. The main work is done at University of Luxembourg especially for the design basics part and the design of composite structure of steel and concrete. For design of concrete structure part, University of Applied Science Trier (Germany) and Thei (Hong Kong, China) has offered great helps and contributed many parts. To conform with the goals of Erasmus+ to promote the cooperation and mobility with the EU’ partner countries and to promote the sustainable development of its partners in the field of higher education and contribute to achieving the objectives of the EU Youth Strategy, the script involves many student’s work. The students could participate in the project through either joining special courses offered by the project partners, as well as, doing a student project, bachelor or master thesis related to this project. Further more the students participated within the transnational teaching activity weeks. With the guidance, the students were able to learn and compare difference design methods by EuroCodes and Chinese design codes and to cooperate with their colleges from different countries. To achieve good quality of the final script, which can be used as additional information and learn material for other students and engineers to learn about Eurocodes and Chinese codes for structural design. Also the work was edited into a uniform formatting to make it constant in style and easy to read. Although, besides the contribution from students, many other topics were added to make the documents complete, it was not possible to cover every topic in the codes due to the limited time and resources. Thus, topics such as fire design, seismic design, bridge design, pre-stressed structures and others are not within the scope of the work. The scripts are divided into 7 sub chapters and many small topics. Each topic has two main documents for Eurocodes and Chinese codes. The main documents have same list of contents, which allows readers to compare the design aspects from the two codes systems easily side by side. Besides that, each topic is also provided with a general summary of comparison, which points out the most important difference and general overview of the design. In the documents not only the content of the codes but also the background information is discussed, which will help students and engineers to understand not only the difference of design but also the reasons behind it.

This book reflects more than three decades of research on Cellular Automata (CA), and nearly a decade of work on the application of CA to model biological strings, which forms the foundation of 'A New Kind of Computational Biology' pioneered by the start-up, CARLBio. After a brief introduction on Cellular Automata (CA) theory and functional biology, it reports on the modeling of basic biological strings with CA, starting with the basic nucleotides leading to codon and anti-codon CA models. It derives a more involved CA model of DNA, RNA, the entire translation process for amino acid formation and the evolution of protein to its unique structure and function. In subsequent chapters the interaction of Proteins with other bio-molecules is also modeled. The only prior knowledge assumed necessary is an undergraduate knowledge of computer programming and biology. [less ▲]

The large-scale development of high-throughput sequencing technologies has allowed the generation of reliable omics data at different regulatory levels. Integrative computational models enable the disentangling of a complex interplay between these interconnected levels of regulation by interpreting these large quantities of biomedical information in a systematic way. In the context of human diseases, network modeling of complex gene-gene interactions has been successfully used for understanding disease-related dysregulations and for predicting novel drug targets to revert the diseased phenotype. Furthermore, these computational network models have emerged as a promising tool to dissect the mechanisms of developmental processes such as cellular differentiation, transdifferentiation, and reprogramming. In this chapter, we provide an overview of recent advances in the field of computational modeling of cellular systems and known limitations. A particular attention is paid to highlight the impact of computational modeling on our understanding of stem cell biology and the complex multifactorial nature of human diseases and their treatment.

The biggest problem for a shallow foundation, just as for any other type of foundation, is a failure due to an overestimation of the bearing capacity. This means that the correct prediction of the bearing capacity of the foundation is often the most important part of the design of a civil structure. That is why the publication by Prandtl in 1920 about the hardness of a plastic body, was a major step in solving the bearing capacity of shallow foundations, although it is well possible that he never realised this, because his solution was not made for civil engineering purposes, but for mechanical purposes. Over the last 100 years, a lot of extensions have been made, for example with inclination factors and shape factors. Also many laboratory experiments have been done and numerical calculations have been made. Some even try to extrapolate the failure mechanism for shallow foundations to the failure mechanism around the tip of a pile. All this scientific work leads back to the first publication by Ludwig Prandtl in 1920. This book, “100 Years of Prandtl’s Wedge”, is intended for all those who are interested in these fundamentals of foundation engineering and their history. The Appendices include a copy of Prandtl’s Über die Härte plastischer Körper and of Reissner’s publication of 1924, Zum Erddruckproblem. [less ▲]

This book is about how risk, energy and governance are intertwined in the development of the nuclear industry in India and its relationship with the Indian public. It provides a rare insider-view of how the nuclear establishment thinks about risk and contrasts that with public understandings of nuclear risk. Through that, the book presents a more nuanced picture of why nuclear energy is considered a rational choice in spite of the risks; the ambiguities in both expert and public risk perceptions; and the internal reflexivities that have emerged within the nuclear establishment as a result of the Fukushima-Daiichi disaster which are not displayed in the public discourse. The insights in this book are not unique to India and similar observations can easily be made in the global nuclear industry. Reflecting on what this means for risk governance in practice, the book proposes a toolkit that practitioners in the nuclear industry can use in public engagement, risk communication and deliberation at various stages of decision-making.

In the time we are living today, education in natural sciences is very important, where scientific knowledge, rapid development of technology and science technology play an important role in our daily life. Most jobs today require workers to be able to learn, be rational, think creatively and critically, make decisions, and solve problems. Understanding science and scientific processes help to develop these skills. Students are required to develop understanding of scientific concepts, conduct experiments, observe, learn from their practices, and contribute to their education learning processes by affecting both affective and cognitive skills as well as psychomotor skills. Recent research on learning in natural sciences shows that school today is not effective in achieving these goals, where an important reason is the lack of motivation and interest of students in natural sciences. In Kosovo, as well as in other countries, learning natural sciences at school is often considered difficult, meaningless, uninteresting, and irrelevant to the students' future. First results of the PISA International Assessment conducted in 2015 are very disappointing and confirm that the quality of education in Kosovo needs to improve urgently. The performance of Kosovo students in the natural sciences test is ranked at the bottom compared to all participating countries in this assessment, where most of the students from Kosovo have not achieved base competencies and skills up to the age of 15. PISA results also point to serious shortfalls in Kosovo with regards to other aspects of education quality, including teaching and learning in schools. These problems have also been identified by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST), which in 2011 started preparations for changing the curricula at the pre-university level and started implementing it in all schools of Kosovo in 2017. This new curriculum is based on the competences of the 21st century. It is based on the achievement of competency scores for each of the 6 curriculum stages, where for primary education the results of competences for stages 1 and 2 have been compiled, the achievement of which is done through learning in natural sciences. The success of students in natural sciences depends on the work and dedication of teachers and students. This is achieved by using modern interactive and comprehensive approaches, methods, techniques and different forms of work. Many procedures are used for this purpose such as, new information, exercises, assignments, project work, practical work, etc. Various materials and tools such as models, diagrams and tables, chemical substances, tools from the kitchen or laboratory, instruments, computers and other educational technologies should also be used. This approach and these methods should serve to encourage independent, critical and creative thinking of students. For all these changes, we must have the well-trained teachers. This can be achieved through continuous teacher professional development, as well as continuous cooperation between them. [less ▲]

In an attempt to strengthen the legitimacy of EU policy-making, the 2009 Lisbon Treaty strengthened the principle of parliamentary control in EU affairs. This pertains to parliaments at all levels ranging from the regional to the supranational level. This book analyses the potential of regional parliaments – the parliaments closest to the citizens – to engage in EU affairs and to fill the perceived legitimacy gap. Eight member states have a total of 73 regional parliaments with legislative powers, and there are further trends towards decentralization in Europe. On its quest to understand the role that regional parliaments can plan in the EU multilevel parliamentary system, the book addresses key questions: What are the formal powers and functions of regional parliaments in EU policy-making? How do they use their powers in practice? How active are they in EU politics and what do they try to achieve? What factors can explain their degree of (in-)activity? [less ▲]

Im aktuellen Theoriediskurs wird jedoch häufiger darauf hingewiesen, dass eine Beschränkung der Interkulturalitätsforschung auf rezente Globalisierungsphänomene zu kurz gegriffen ist und die Notwendigkeit einer Historisierung besteht. In diesem Sinne unternimmt der Band einen Vorstoß zur Erweiterung des Forschungsfeldes im Zeichen des Diachron-Geschichtlichen und erreicht damit eine signifikante Komplexitätssteigerung des häufig zu undifferenziert gedachten Interkulturalitätsbegriffs.

While social change regarding trans(sexuality) has evolved within an expanding nexus of concepts, practices, regulations and institutions, this process has barely been analysed systematically. Against the background of legislative processes on gender recognition in a state formation shaped by heteronormative hegemony, this study traces how sexology, the law, federal politics and the trans movement interacted to generate or challenge concepts of trans(sexuality) from the mid-1960s to 2014 in the Federal Republic of Germany. The interdisciplinary study draws upon and contributes to debates in (trans)gender and queer studies, political science, sociology of law, sexology and the social movement. [less ▲]

The European Union has adopted several Directives harmonising the rights of the suspects and accused persons in criminal proceedings. The effectiveness of defence rights granted by EU legal instruments does not simply rely on their correct implementation in national law, but also depends on the existence of enforcement and control mechanisms granting judicial protection to individuals. Although the Directives impose remedial obligations on the Member States, the different structure and scope of judicial control under national law is likely to undermine the justiciability of procedural safeguards granted by EU law. Divergences among national criminal justice systems raise further challenges in the field of cross-border cooperation. In light of the recent case law of the European Courts, the present book explores the scope and meaning of the right to effective judicial protection in criminal proceedings in relation to the first three Directives of the Stockholm roadmap. It offers a comparative analysis of the national implementations of these so-called ABC Directives in six Member States, focusing on legal remedies that ensure the effectiveness of the rights granted by the EU Directives. This volume presents the results of a study carried out by a group of European criminal law experts from 2015 to 2017 thanks to the financial support of the EU Commission. [less ▲]

This book offers new perspectives on Luxembourg history after 1940 focusing on lived experiences on the one hand and representations of gender in various media, on the other. It contains 27 articles. Some authors explore the significance of gender in politics, education and the arts (music, literature and film). Others investigate gender stereotypes in school books, advertisement, television and magazines. The book presents gender identities that transcend the male/female binary, yet shows that the latter remains hegemonial in many domains. [less ▲]

Que faire des fous ? Les enfermer, les éloigner, les soigner ? Sur les bords de Seine comme ailleurs, les réponses ont varié dans l’histoire suivant la compréhension des pathologies mentales et la capacité d’y apporter des soins. Mais Paris s’est illustré singulièrement en trois circonstances. En 1795, tout d’abord, quand l’utopie de la libération des aliénés a offert un écho aux idéaux révolutionnaires. À la fin du XIXe siècle, ensuite, alors que la psychiatrie française attirait tous les regards… y compris celui du jeune Sigmund Freud qui vint suivre les enseignements du professeur Charcot à la Salpêtrière. Et c’est dans les années 1950 que furent découverts à l’hôpital Sainte-Anne les neuroleptiques, inaugurant une « révolution chimique » appelée à bouleverser durablement les approches thérapeutiques.

White collar crime has expanded significantly over the course of the past two decades. Yet, not only as the amount of national and international legislation in the field grown, but it has also endured changes driving it away from the classic criminal law. These trends have been reflected in changes to national legislation, not infrequently prompted by supranational law, for example, in the financial or the environmental sector. New punishing regimes have emerged, such as UN blacklisting, smart sanctions, civil asset forfeiture, financial supervisory powers, compliance law, and anti-money laundering laws. Furthermore, the role of administrative sanctioning law has been growing as well as the role of private actors in the enforcement of punitive sanctions. The aim of this volume is to examine how various national criminal justice systems across Europe deal with the aforementioned challenges. In the first part, it takes a closer look at the following national systems: France, Germany, Poland and Sweden. Furthermore, it compares the European approach with the American one as a source of inspiration for unresolved difficulties and future developments. Further still, the authors explore those challenging issues regarding the field of economic and financial crime, including the Senior Managers Regime, corporate criminal liability, and whistle-blowers' protection. Timely and pertinent, this is an important new work in a fast-moving field. [less ▲]

In wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) domain, the decision support tools are nowadays necessary in order to efficiently process the large databases generated with on-line sensors. In this paper a cooperative decision support system (DSS) is presented. This DSS uses a KPI-based fuzzy logic engine to analyse the plant performance and identify the operational conditions that occur in the plants. Then, it associates the detected operational conditions with YouTube pages in which videos are uploaded to provide details and propose suggestions. The YouTube platform is then used to share and validate suggestions by means of the comment functions and the 'likes'. This approach is innovative, free of costs, and useful for plant managers that can rely on a user-friendly platform. [less ▲]

Drawing on archives gathered in the six founding member states of the European Union, this book offers a new perspective on the "constitutionalization" of the European treaties, which was launched in the 1960s by the Court of Justice of the EU. By highlighting the professional and personal backgrounds of the first European judges and advocates general, its author studies the dynamics which prevailed within the institution during its "revolutionary" years and analyzes the Court’s relationship with the Member States of the European Communities. Through a detailed study of the selection process of the members of the Court, it also provides new answers to the question of whether governments tried to put an end to its bold jurisprudence.

The question of which European or international institution should exercise public authority is a highly contested one. This new collection offers an innovative approach to answering this vexed question. It argues that by viewing public authority as relative, it allows for greater understanding of both its allocation and its legitimacy. Furthermore, it argues that relations between actors should reflect the comparative analysis of the legitimacy assets that each actor can bring into governance processes. Put succinctly, the volume illustrates that public authority is relative between actors and relative to specific legitimacy assets. Drawing on the expertise of leading scholars in the field, it offers a thought-provoking and rigorous analysis of the long debated question of who should do what in European and international law.

This book examines contemporary educational research and its governance, addressing key questions via a multidisciplinary theoretical framework of comparative institutional analysis with original data and applying multiple methods. The authors explore and explain important changes in the governance of educational research and the contents of scholarship in education and related disciplines across Europe since the 1990s. This volume synthesizes findings from a multi-year comparative research project, including in-depth empirical case studies of three distinct educational research cultures evolving in Germany, Norway, and the United Kingdom. The authors reconstruct and compare changing conceptualizations of educational research, embedded in increasingly internationalized contexts of research, and examine shifts in its governance, including patterns of funding, publication, and evaluation. They examine the producers of European educational research and the distinct role of the European Union in constructing a European Educational Research Area, in establishing cross-border networks, and in (re)shaping educational research agendas. Through innovative empirical analysis of programs of research on various levels and education researchers’ collaborations in scientific networks, they provide insights into (supra)national dynamics in education-related scholarship. Theory-guided content analysis of research projects funded by leading national funding agencies and by the most highly developed supranational research funding instrument – the EU Framework Programme – enables the authors to embed findings on Germany, the United Kingdom, and Norway in a broader European perspective.

Every managerial decision is risky, at least to some extent. Conducting business is impossible without venturing into new territories and even the most ordinary daily choices could turn out to be failures. Excessive risk, however, can be very detrimental as was starkly illustrated by the most recent financial crisis. By criminalising managers' excessive risk-taking criminal law enters a sphere which is at the core of the activity it affects. At the same time it provides for criminal punishment for courses of conduct that, without doubt, can be extremely harmful. The objective of this book is to examine existing criminalisation of excessive risk-taking as well as to analyse whether such criminalisation is desirable and if yes, under which conditions.

Care for elderly persons has many facets and is influenced by many factors of the care-dependent person, the care giver(s) and the micro-, and macro-social context. A co-operation of multiple disciplines is required to better understand phenomena of elder care and to act adequately in this field. This is even more urgent given the increasing population aging and the impending gaps between demand and supply of care. The present book provides a first substantive integration of knowledge from geropsychology, other gerosciences, and cultural psychologies to reach these goals —through a multi-disciplinary and international cast of authors. Macro-social context—including demographic, historical, political, normative, and other cultural factors—turned out to open and limit the available options for individual care giving and receipt and shapes how these issues are experienced by the participants in elder care. Elder care is shown to be far more complex than previously thought, because its consequences extend beyond single care givers to multigenerational caring families. Thinking, feeling and acting in relation to care dependency, caregiving and care receipt emerged as being influenced by multiple individual and social level factors. Future issues of elder care are seen as being shaped to a large extent by macro level factors such as population aging, social trends in job and family life, and development of assistive technologies. All this has far reaching implications for ensuring quality of care and the life quality on part of care recipients and care providers and for the coherence of social communities. [less ▲]

Zweitens werden primär- und sekundärpräventive Maßnahmen dargestellt wie das Profiling, Threat Assessments sowie das Phänomen des Leakings. Und drittens liegt der Fokus auf der Nachsorge bei School Shootings, deren Ziel es ist, erlebte psychotraumatische Belastung zu bewältigen. Es werden notfallpsychologische Akuthilfen, kurzfristige bis mittelfristige, traumafokussierte, sowie längerfristige Interventionsmaßnahmen für Kinder, Jugendliche und Erwachsene näher erläutert.

This volume analyzes sustainability-related innovations in the building sector and discusses how regional contexts articulate transition trajectories toward green building. It presents ‘biographies’ of drivers and processes of green building innovation in four case studies: Brisbane (AUS), Freiburg (GER), Luxembourg (LU), and Vancouver (CA). Two of them are relatively well known for their initiatives to mitigate climate change – particularly in the building sector, whereas the other two have only recently become more active in promoting green building. The volume places emphasis on development paths, learning processes, and innovations. The focus of the case studies is not restricted to purely technological aspects but also integrates regulatory, procedural, institutional, and other processes and routines and their influence on the variations of the building sector. The diversity of the selected case studies offer the reader the opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of how sustainability developments have unfolded in different city regions. Case study-specific catalogues of transition paths provide insights to inform policy debates and planning processes. The catalogues identify crucial innovations (technological, regulatory, etc.) and explain the factors and circumstances that have led to their success and broader acceptance in Freiburg, Vancouver, Luxembourg, and Brisbane. With the help of a number of micro case studies within each of the four city regions, the case studies also offer ground for comparison and identification of differences. The book represents the outcome of the GreenRegio project, which stands for ‘Green building in regional strategies for sustainability: multi-actor governance and innovative building technologies in Europe, Australia, and Canada.’ GreenRegio was a 3-year CORE-INTER research project funded by the National Research Fund Luxembourg (FNR) and the German Research Foundation (DFG).

A multitude of devices and technological tools now exist to make, share, and store memories and moments with family, friends, and even strangers. Memory practices such as home movies, which originated as the privilege of a few, well-to-do families, have now emerged as ubiquitous and immediate cultures of sharing. Departing from the history of home movies, this volume offers a sophisticated understanding of technologically mediated, mostly ritualized memory practices, from early beginnings in the fin-de-siècle to today. Departing from a longue durée perspective on home movie practices, Materializing Memories moves beyond a strict historical study to grapple with highly theorized fields, such as media studies, memory studies, and science and technology studies (STS). The contributors to this volume reflect on these different intellectual backgrounds and perspectives, but all chapters share a common framework by addressing practices of use, user configurations, and relevant media landscapes. Grasping the cultural dynamics of such multi-faceted practices requires a multidimensional conceptual approach, here achieved by centering around three concepts as central analytical lenses: dispositifs, generations, and amateurs.

Böhmen im 14. Jahrhundert kann als historischer Modellfall der Durchmischung, Konkurrenz und Bereicherung von Kulturen in einem komplexen Kommunikationsraum gesehen werden, der von Trägerschaften wie dem einheimischen Adel, dem regierenden Haus, dem städtischen Patriziat und der Geistlichkeit bestimmt wurde. Unter literaturwissenschaftlicher Perspektive zeichnet der Band das labile Gleichgewicht der Kräfte beispielhaft nach, welches das mehrsprachige und mehrkulturelle Prag in der Zeit der Luxemburger Dynastie erreichte – und auch bald wieder verlor. Daneben erfolgt ein Brückenschlag zur literarischen, kulturellen und politischen Situation der Neuzeit und Gegenwart. [less ▲]
