title Relational Database Modeling of Building Design Data
source Computing in Civil Engineering Conference Proceedings (3rd : 1984 : San Diego). American Society Of Civil Engineers, pp. 364-371. CADLINE has abstract only
summary This paper discusses the use of a relational database for representing the data gathered and derived during the building design process. In doing so, it considers the complexity of the relationships among a structure's topology, geometry, and attributes, and the critical requirements they impose on the development of a building design database. In the broad arena of computer-aided design, relational database management systems are establishing themselves as useful engineering tools. This is occurring at a time when engineers and architects are moving toward centralized and integrated databases of design information. In such a database, information is directly and readily available to all members of the design team, allowing them to work concurrently on an accurate representation of a wide variety of engineering design data. This paper presents the use of a relational database to model building design data and shows that the relationships among topology, geometry, and attributes can be successfully modeled relationally. The feasibility of interaction between engineering applications programs and the database is also indicated. Although the paper concentrates on structural design data for buildings, the relational model can also be used to represent the data of other engineering design disciplines as well as the data for other structures, assemblies, systems, and processes

title Expert systems for Engineering Design : Problem Components, Technique, & Prototypes
source 31 p. : charts Design Research Center, CMU, March, 1984. DRC-0502-83. includes bibliography
summary A number of problems in diagnosis and engineering design can be solved by using current expert system techniques. This paper enumerates the main components of such problems and the steps that are taken in solving them. A few prototypical artificial intelligence systems embody techniques that can be applied to engineering problems are surveyed, and their relevance to components of design problems is discussed. Some expert system in design domain are summarized, with emphasis on aspects that can illustrate wider applicability of the techniques

title A Design Tool for Determining the Form of Fixed and Movable Sunshades
source ASHRAE Transactions. 1984. vol. 90: [14] p. : ill. and tables. includes bibliography: p. [7]
summary A method for the design of fixed and movable external sunshaeds for windows is presented. The window can have any shape and be located on a wall having an arbitrary orientation. The fundamental idea is to use a computer to generate the entire envelope of the family of shading solutions that satisfies a prescribed set of shading requirements. The envelope of solutions serves as a nomogram on the basis of which sunshades are designed. Any sunshade designed following this nomogram satisfies the prescribed demands. The method creates an unlimited space of solutions, leaving the final design to the architect's imagination

title Climate and Building Design - Tradition, Research and Design Tools
source Energy and Buildings. 1984. vol. 7: pp.55-69 : ill. tables. includes bibliography
summary Important design parameters that influence the building thermal behavior and in particular natural cooling are discussed. Among these design parameters are: ventilation, evaporation, proper shading, orientation of the building and its proportions with respect to the orientation, the color of the building's envelope and its conductivity, the thermal mass of the building, night radiation to the sky and the stack effect. The latter is the katabatic and anabatic cooling. Different design tools aimed at the study of the influence of the climatological parameters on the form and h)0*0*0* Ԍ characteristics of buildings were developed in recent years. These tools help architects in designing houses with improved indoor thermal conditions without mechanical means, or with minimum energy consumptions. Several design tools, as well as design considerations and traditional constructions, are presented
keywords Emphasis is placed on computer-aided design tools

title Ergonomic Studies in Computer-Aided Design Ergodesign 84 -- Ergonomics and Design in the Electronic Office:2. Field Studies, Office Furniture and Hardware
source Behaviour and Information Technology 1984 v.3 n.4 p.341-346
summary This paper describes the results of an ergonomic survey on interactive graphics workstations for computer-aided design (CAD). A work-sampling study was carried out to characterize the use of keyboard, digitizer tablet and video display. Subjective impressions of CAD software, CAD hardware and health aspects were collected by means of a questionnaire. Working methods and working postures were recorded on videotape. The two most important differences in comparison with other office terminals are: (i) dynamic working methods result in an absence of constrained postures in CAD operators and allow full-body exercise; (ii) CAD operators spend more time (46-68 per cent of working hours) viewing the video display than the average office terminal operator. Some ergonomic recommendations have been deduced for the construction of CAD terminals, as well as for the ergonomic improvement of existing workstations.

title Talking to UNIX in English: An Overview of UC
source Communications of the ACM Vol. 27.no. 6 (June, 1984): pp. 574-593. includes bibliography
summary UC is a natural language help facility which advises users in using the UNIX operating system. Users can query UC about how to do things, command names and formats, online definitions of UNIX or general operating systems terminology, and debugging problems in using commands. UC is comprised of the following components: a language analyzer and generator, a context and memory model, an experimental common-sense planner, highly extensible knowledge bases on both the UNIX domain and the English language, a goal analysis component, and a system for acquisition of new knowledge through instruction in English. The language interface of UC is based on a 'phrasal analysis' approach which integrates semantic, grammatical and other types of information. In addition, it includes capabilities for ellipsis resolution and reference disambiguation

title Building a Computer Tutor : Design Issues
source IEEE Computer. September, 1984. vol. 17: pp. 61-73 : diagrams. includes bibliography
summary An effective tutor must deal with a fundamental problem of communication: to determine how messages are received and understood and to formulate appropriate answers. This means that a tutor, more than a speaker, must verify that both parties know what information has been covered, what is missing, and which communication might be erroneous. In this article the authors discuss how an understanding of a student can be constructed in an artificial intelligence program and how this understanding, coupled with a facility for language generation, can be used to build flexible machine tutor
