Zero fossil fuel CO2 emissions on the horizon

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Zero fossil fuel CO2 emissions for the entire global built environment are expected to be achieved by the second half of this century, according to climate change meetings held in London, Bonn and Paris.

The Fifth Assessment Report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC),  the world’s leading climate science body, projected a number of scenarios, each plotting amounts of carbon emissions and the resulting future global average temperatures. The bottom line is, there is only one scenario with a good chance of averting irreversible climate change: one that caps global cumulative industrial-era carbon emissions at under one trillion tons, according to the report.

Able2Extract PDF to AutoCAD Converter

Friday, April 11th, 2014

Able2Extract is a conversion tool to convert PDF to AutoCAD formats, as well as PDF to Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Publisher, HTML, image formats and much more.

According to a company spokesman, AutoCAD users may need to convert vector images and text locked in native PDF files to editable DWG or DXF files. AutoCAD offers the ability to save a drawing as PDF, so users can share their drawings, plan or projects with their clients, project leaders or other stakeholders. Professionals from various fields often choose to share their work (designs or drawings) in PDF because the PDF format is platform-independent and doesn’t require the native application to view the document. Another advantage of PDF is that it preserves the formatting of documents, so the sender (file creator/author) ensures that the recipients of the file see it as they are intended.

AutodeskSubscription offers more flexibility with 2015 product release

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

AutodeskSubscription offers a modern way for customers to purchase and access the software and services that they need to grow their business, and new purchasing options allow customers to choose the plan that best fits their current project needs and budget. The flexibility offered in this way of purchasing and accessing software allows for greater flexibility for a broader spectrum of customers.

“We like the subscription program with Autodesk because it provides predictability and stability; it simplifies our licensing, and it gives us a lot of flexibility,” said Gene Evans, Autodesk subscription administrator for Woolpert, a US-based design, geospatial and infrastructure management firm. “In addition, upgrades on subscription are pretty much a no-brainer. We budget a static sum every year, and it’s been easy to predict our costs, we can upgrade at any time, whenever it works for us. Subscription also allows us to explore cloud services and evaluate where they will benefit us as a company and make better informed decisions. Subscription is the only way to go for us.” (more…)

Sensors power next-generation Structural Health Monitoring in civil engineering applications

Friday, March 7th, 2014


Sherborne Sensors’ Mike Baker examines how field-proven sensor technology lies at the heart of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) innovation.

Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is an emerging field that provides information on demand about any significant change or damage occurring in a structure. It has been employed for many years in civil infrastructure in various forms, ranging from visual observation and assessment of structural condition, to technology-led approaches involving deployment of an array of sensors that can include accelerometers, inclinometers and strain measurement devices on site.  These sensors can be deployed on a permanent basis or moved on and off site each time a fresh set of data is required.

Conventional forms of inspection and monitoring are only as good as their ability to uncover potential issues in a timely manner. One of the major difficulties with SHM instruments for example, is managing the huge volumes of data that sensor arrays generate. Meanwhile, visual inspections and evaluations are insufficient for determining the structural adequacy of bridges or buildings.
