First published in 2001, this volume demonstrates how computer-based learning has the potential to provide a highly motivating learning experience, that it also has the potential to achieve exactly the opposite, and that the difference between these two extremes is the quality of the learning design. The challenge for the learning designer isn't a simple one. You are being asked to prepare interactive learning for someone you can't see and with whom the only interaction you are likely to have is via limited written communication. Fortunately help is at hand in Alan Clarke's Designing Computer-Based Learning Materials. Dr. Clarke offers a definitive guide to each of the many elements involved in good design. This book explores the principles of adult learning, and relates to the potential, features and impact of computer-based learning. This is not a 'how to...' book, but rather one seeking to help you understand the different elements which go into computer-based learning. If you are commissioning material, it will help you to understand the contractors' constraints. If you are designing materials yourself, it will allow you to avoid many of the errors it is all too easy to make when developing them. Computer-based learning materials are not all the same: their range reflects the variety of learners that use them and purposes they are used for; the different learning environments that are available to people; the different subjects that they wish to learn and the level to which they wish to take them. In the face of such a complex task, involving so many factors and variables, it is essential that the learning designer understands what is involved and uses a rigorous process for envisioning, planning, designing, implementing and testing their solution. This is a book about learning design and not about software production and, as such, it provides any aspiring designers with the fundamentals of producing the highly motivating learning experience, which should be their objective.

Sponsored by the Computing and Information Technology Division of ASCE Building information modeling (BIM) has become a significant area of endeavor in the architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) industry. The models generated from BIM are being used for analysis and design of buildings and other infrastructure. The ability to integrate schedule and cost data with the analysis and design process makes BIM a very useful tool. Building Information Modeling contains 13 chapters, contributed by international researchers and practitioners, that present a comprehensive overview of the recent advances in the application of BIM across the AECO industry. The use of BIM is examined as a framework for structural design; in cost estimation; in adaptive cyber-physical systems; in construction progress monitoring and project management; in green building project delivery; in commissioning and facilities management; in military construction; in model assessment; and in integration with augmented reality. Engineers, architects, contractors, building owners, facility managers, as well as researchers, will find this publication a valuable resource.
This book is a guide to understanding and using the software package ARPACK to solve large algebraic eigenvalue problems. The software described is based on the implicitly restarted Arnoldi method, which has been heralded as one of the three most important advances in large scale eigenanalysis in the past ten years. The book explains the acquisition, installation, capabilities, and detailed use of the software for computing a desired subset of the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of large (sparse) standard or generalized eigenproblems. It also discusses the underlying theory and algorithmic background at a level that is accessible to the general practitioner.
