Integral Facade Construction: Towards a new product architecture for curtain walls

by Tillmann Klein

Integral Facade Construction focuses on the future development of the curtain wall. While the requirements on facades have slowly increased over the last decades, the curtain wall has evolved from craftsmanship oriented constructions to highly developed facade systems. But its constructional principle is still the same....

Lactose Intolerance

by Sics Editore

Lactose intolerance should be identified as the cause of flatulence, abdominal pains and intermittent diarrhoea before performing more extensive investigations. Genetic testing for adult-type hypolactasia (primary hypolactasia, genotype C/C1390) reliably confirms or excludes the predisposition to ordinary lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance is rare in children below 5 years of age.A lactose ingestion test frequently yields false results. Lactose as an ingredient of pharmaceutical tablets very rarely causes symptoms.Coeliac disease is the most important cause of secondary hypolactasia and should be borne in mind when suspecting lactose intolerance.

Smart Energy Management for Households

by Sonja Van Dam

Smart Energy Management for Households infers design-related insights and guidelines to improve the use and effectiveness of home energy management systems (HEMS) through an empirical evaluation of the longitudinal effectiveness of these devices and an exploration of factors that influence their use and effectiveness.Three case studies executed with three different HEMS in households, a life cycle assessment (LCA) on those three HEMS, as well as a reflection on the challenges of both researching and implementing HEMS in existing housing gave a comprehensive picture of the opportunities and barriers for HEMS.The research revealed five typical use patterns that emerged amongst households. It also revealed average energy savings of 7.8%, which however decreased in the follow-up that was condu...

Hypocalcaemia, Hypoparathyroidism and Vitamin D Deficiency

by Sics Editore

It must be ensured that the patient does not have pseudohypocalcaemia caused by hypoalbuminaemia. When serum albumin is reduced by 10 g/l, serum/plasma calcium is reduced by 0.2 mmol/l. This explains why severe illness and malnutrition are often associated with mild asymptomatic hypocalcaemia; in these cases the concentration of serum/plasma ionized calcium remains normal and should be used for reference. Many laboratories report the albumin-corrected calcium concentration. The cause of hypocalcaemia should be determined before replacement therapy is initiated. The concentration of calcium is regulated by parathyroid hormone (PTH), vitamin D, calcitonin and phosphate. The reference values for calcium vary between different laboratories and by age (a typical reference range of plasma calciu...

AM Envelope: The potential of Additive Manufacturing for facade constructions

by Holger Strauss

This book shows the potential of Additive Manufacturing (AM) for the development of building envelopes: AM will change the way of designing facades, how we engineer and produce them. To achieve todays demands from those future envelopes, we have to find new solutions.The term AM Envelope (Additive Manufacturing Envelope) describes the transfer of this technology to the building envelope. Additive Fabrication is a building block that aids in developing the building envelope from a mere space enclosure to a dynamic building envelope.AM offers the opportunity to manufacture facades just in time. It is no longer necessary to store or produce large numbers of parts in advance. Initial investment for tooling can be avoided, as design improvements can be realized within the dataset of the AM...

Tipping the Balance: Policies to shape agriculture investments and markets in favour of small-scale farmers

by Bill Vorley and Lorenzo Cotula

A recent wave of large-scale land acquisitions and other commercial investment in agriculture has raised concerns that small-scale producers are being marginalized. This report takes a new look at the role of public policy and market governance in ensuring inclusive sustainable development. It identifies key policy levers and how these tip commercial investments in favour of either small- or large-scale farming, and how policy levers influence market governance to constrain or support the fair sharing of risk and reward between small-scale producers and the rest of the market. A considerable proportion of the report is dedicated to identifying policy elements that can specifically contribute to gender-equitable results. The focus of the analysis is on national policy, with international po...

Performance Assessment Strategies: A computational framework for conceptual design of large roofs

by Michela Turrin

Using engineering performance evaluations to explore design alternatives during the conceptual phase of architectural design helps to understand the relationships between form and performance; and is crucial for developing well-performing final designs. Computer aided conceptual design has the potential to aid the design team in discovering and highlighting these relationships; especially by means of procedural and parametric geometry to support the generation of geometric design, and building performance simulation tools to support performance assessments. However, current tools and methods for computer aided conceptual design in architecture do not explicitly reveal nor allow for backtracking the relationships between performance and geometry of the design. They currently support post-en...

Performance measurement of workplace change: in two different cultural contexts

by Chaiwat Riratanaphong

Nowadays, organisations must cope with the pressure of cost reduction and efficiency in order to succeed in a highly competitive business environment. However, drivers to improve social interaction and employees performance and as such to contribute to organisational goals and objectives make it necessary to be concerned with other performance criteria as well, such as effectiveness, flexibility, employee satisfaction, productivity and creativity. There is a growing need for performance management and performance measurement that not only covers all aspects of an organisation, but which can be applied to various situations in a changing internal and external environment. Performance measurement methods which include an integrated perspective of performance have become essential. In additi...

Management of Adverse Effects of Radiotherapy

by Sics Editore

Radiotherapy is a local treatment modality and therefore the side effects are almost invariably local. Typical adverse effects are caused by a damage to the reproductive cells. Skin reactions comprise redness and dry or moist epithelitis. Other symptoms include mucosal injuries, fibrosis, cataract, radiation pneumonitis, and after extensive radiotherapy also leuco- and thrombocytopenia. Growth disturbances in the bone and cartilage tissues are seen in growing children in the areas that have received radiation doses large enough to destroy tumours. Mental development may be retarded especially in small children if the radiation is directed into the area of the head and brains.

Hypoglycaemia in a Diabetic Patient

The possibility of hypoglycaemia should be considered with every unconscious diabetic patient, especially with type I diabetics. To avoid hypoglycaemic attacks the insulin dosing should be checked every time the patient has symptoms of hypoglycaemia low plasma blood sugar levels (< 4 mmol/l) in home tests. Low values at night are particularly dangerous. Treatment of the elderly patients with sulfonylureas should be undertaken with great care.
