Brick and Block Masonry: Trends, Innovations and Challenges - Proceedings of the 16th International Brick and Block Masonry Conference, IBMAC 2016 | Year: 2016

Supplementary injection anchors are used as a repairing-system inside masonry for transferring tensile-forces that cannot be transmitted by the masonry itself or for new connections. They basically consist of a tensile element—usually reinforcing steel or threaded rods—inserted into a slightly larger borehole and grouted with cement. The solid plug of injection material transfers the tensile forces. Assuming successful grouting, considerable tensile forces can be transferred at short bond lengths. Supplementary Injection Anchors have been utilised since the 1920s and are applied within a core philosophy of minimum intervention. The bond strength of injection anchors depends on the properties of the existing materials and the injection technology. Design recommendations for supplementary injection anchors have been developed in Karlsruhe and Lübeck since 1998. Basic parameter is the compressive strength of the injected grout. During grouting of absorptive stone material, a significant amount of water is extracted from the suspension through the borehole surface. Hereby, the water/cement-ratio will be decreased, resulting in a significant stronger compressive strength of the injected grout plug compared to the initial suspension. The increase of bond strength inside water absorptive stone material might be considered within the current design recommendations. The term describing this parameter is based on three stone materials: Two different sandstones and brick. For further evaluation of the influence, recently 50 pull-out tests of injection anchors in medium and high absorptive sandstone blocks have been performed in laboratory. The paper describes the results and the implications for the design recommendations. © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

Elastic container platforms (like Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, Apache Mesos) fit very well with existing cloudnative application architecture approaches. So it is more than astonishing, that these already existing and open source available elastic platforms are not considered more consequently in multi-cloud research. Elastic container platforms provide inherent multi-cloud support that can be easily accessed. We present a solution proposal of a control process which is able to scale (and migrate as a side effect) elastic container platforms across different public and private cloud-service providers. This control loop can be used in an execution phase of self-Adaptive auto-scaling MAPE loops (monitoring, analysis, planning, execution). Additionally, we present several lessons learned from our prototype implementation which might be of general interest for researchers and practitioners. For instance, to describe only the intended state of an elastic platform and let a single control process take care to reach this intended state is far less complex than to define plenty of specific and necessary multi-cloud aware workflows to deploy, migrate, terminate, scale up and scale down elastic platforms or applications. ©2017 by SCITEPRESS - Science and Technology Publications, Lda.

The implementation of open innovation depends on the proclivity for open innovation. The proclivity for open innovation and its tool social media is an attitude of the management. One factor that could affect the proclivity for open innovation is the entrepreneurial orientation (EO). The aim of this paper is to give a literature review and to develop a theoretical concept for the relationship between the EO and the proclivity for open innovation. Special focus lies upon the application of social media as a tool for open innovation. © Springer International Publishing AG 2017.

The traditional communications paradigm, which relied on the classic promotional mix to craft Integrated marketing communications (IMC) strategies, must give way to a new paradigm that includes all forms of social media as potential tools in designing and implementing IMC strategies. Consequently, there needs to be a transition of market communication from ‘Bowling’ to ‘Pinball’ and a new model of marketing communication in the social media environment which is the 6C model of marketing communication. © Springer International Publishing AG 2017.

The Communitys maritime sector must sustain and improve its competitive advantage, with the groundwork for future international competitiveness resting with high quality and innovative education and training. Employees in the maritime transport sector need innovative educational opportunities that focus on their special working conditions. The KNow-ME project addresses this need by engendering a modern image of shipping which attracts young people to maritime careers at sea and ashore and instils an awareness of the industry as a driver of EU development and an attractive employer. This can only be achieved though critical dialogue with industry on potential future developments, current and future strengths and weaknesses, and the support required to ensure a forward thinking sustainable industry. The KNow-ME consortium argues that maritime training and education requires a life-cycle approach, where demand-oriented transnational e-courses and supporting material are developed in line with industry expectations and modern lifestyles. Enhanced education and training for the industrys professions must cater for a multicultural working environment, gender neutrality and maximum accessibility independent from time and space. A modern image, career management and e-training and education will be promoted by establishing an e-portal that integrates with other e-maritime initiative developments. Implementation of the proposed education and training strategies require the support of both industry and proactive national and regional policy and practices that enhance the transparency, transferability and compatibility of training and educations standards. The KNow-ME project will establish a network of excellence in Europe, integrating experience from leading maritime research institutions. The pilot applications of e-courses developed within KNow-ME will allow for CPD, with the outcomes expected to contribute to improved living and working conditions on board vessels.

Social information use is common in a wide range of group-living animals, notably in humans. We investigated social information use by pedestrians in a potentially dangerous scenario: at a road crossing. To judge a safe gap in traffic, pedestrians can use social information, such as the crossing behavior of others, and follow others across the road. We tested if pedestrians followed others in this scenario by analyzing pedestrian starting position and crossing order. First, we found that neighbors of a crossing pedestrian tended to cross before other waiting pedestrians and that this tendency was significantly higher in observed pedestrians than in a null model: a simulation in which pedestrians did not follow each other. Also, by fitting the null model, we found that on average a person was 1.5-2.5 times more likely to cross if their neighbor had started to cross. Second, we found that males tended to follow others more than females. Third, we observed that some individuals started to cross and then returned to the roadside. These individuals were more frequently found in groups and tended to start to cross relatively later than other pedestrians. These observations suggest that some of these individuals made incorrect decisions about the timing of their crossing and that this was due to social information use. Finally, we propose that the relatively small benefit of a reduced waiting time came at the cost of an increased risk of injury, making the beneficial value of social information use questionable in this context. © The Author 2010.

Electronic media have unlocked a hitherto largely untapped potential for swarm intelligence (SI; generally, the realisation that group living can facilitate solving cognitive problems that go beyond the capacity of single animals) in humans with relevance for areas such as company management, prediction of elections, product development and the entertainment industry. SI is a rapidly developing topic that has become a hotbed for both innovative research and wild speculation. Here, we tie together approaches from seemingly disparate areas by means of a general definition of SI to unite SI work on both animal and human groups. Furthermore, we identify criteria that are important for SI to operate and propose areas in which further progress with SI research can be made. © 2009 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

The increasing miniaturisation of animal-tracking technology has made it possible to gather exceptionally detailed machine-sensed data on the social dynamics of almost entire populations of individuals, in both terrestrial and aquatic study systems. Here, we review important issues concerning the collection of such data, and their processing and analysis, to identify the most promising approaches in the emerging field of 'reality mining'. Automated technologies can provide data sensing at time intervals small enough to close the gap between social patterns and their underlying processes, providing insights into how social structures arise and change dynamically over different timescales. Especially in conjunction with experimental manipulations, reality mining promises significant advances in basic and applied research on animal social systems. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Although cloud computing is in all mouth today it seems that there exist only little evidences in literature that it is more economical effective than classical data center approaches. Due to a performed qualitative analysis on COBIT, TOGAF and ITIL this paper postulates that cloud-based approaches are likely to provide more benefits than disprofits to IT management. Nevertheless one astonishing issue is the not often stressed ex ante cost intransparency of cloud based approaches which is a major implicit problem for IT investment decisions. This paper shows first considerations how to overcome this issue.
