EU CISE 2020 is an important step towards the accomplishment of the European roadmap for CISE; the project attains the widest possible experimental environment of innovative and collaborative processes between European maritime institutions. EU CISE 2020 takes as reference a broad spectrum of factors in the field of European Integrated Maritime Surveillance, arising from the European legal framework, as well as from studies, pilot and R&D projects accomplished in the last three years; in particular, the project is based on: the CISE Roadmap developed by DG MARE the results of European pilot projects BluemassMed and MARSUNO, the work performed by CISE TAG-Technical Advisory Group, the European studies on maritime surveillance already carried out, the results of Security research projects in progress, with particular reference to PERSEUS and SEABILLA the needs of innovation expressed by the maritime stakeholders arising from their operational experience in managing maritime surveillance processes and systems at European, international and national levels. Under the guidance of a Stakeholder Board, EU CISE 2020 will manage in parallel the elaboration of the action plan for the operational validation of new elements of R&D needed to develop CISE (concepts of architecture, concepts of operation, standards of data and services, new services, new processes, ...), the development of an open European test bed for incremental advancement of CISE in the medium-long term, the independent Verification & Validation of the new elements of R&D, as well as the assessment of organizational instruments necessary to sustain the appropriate governance structure and to stimulate public-private cooperation. EU CISE 2020 draws a major space of opportunity for national and European maritime Institutions to collaboratively innovate their processes and systems, and for European enterprises to develop a new range of solutions and services competitive in the international market.

The compliance with building regulations in existing buildings is a difficult problem. The question about if it is possible to fulfil the performance levels required by the society and stated in new buildings regulations when operating on existing ones, while safeguarding legal responsibilities of participants in the process opens an interesting debate. The aim of this paper is to explain the difficulties found on giving criteria for these cases and the strategies that the public administration is considering. Source

Education & Learning Process at Manufacturing Engineering subjects requires the use, at every educational level, of resources and technologies that improve professor educative practice and student contents and competences acquisition. In this work it is showed the use of a 3D simulation tool for virtual models creation, carried out by National Distance University of Spain and the Salesianos - Atocha School at Madrid, Spain, within the practical part of several subjects of their manufacture engineering studies and professional formative. It is analyzed and discussed the development of a virtual model that simulates a lathe gearbox manufacturing project in the classroom. A 3D CAD geometry is used as a base for the calculation and design of all the gearbox components (main spindle, chucḱs joints, gears, change of feed, etc.). This methodology, used with every lathe component, permits the presentation of the machine as a whole and the analysis of the gearbox development in it. Human factors, assembly time, workplaces development and 3D lines design are studied and analyzed within the proposed model. The programs which have been used to develop this work are: Inventor 2009, Adobe Premier and 3D Studio Max R6. The final results can be displayed into several digital formats which help with the pedagogical model promotion. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland. Source

Cross-median crashes are the cause of dramatic situations and involve high costs for the society. For this reason, an special attention must be paid in the design of highways medians and in the installation of safety barriers with the aim of avoiding this kind of accidents and of reducing their consequences. Usually median dual carriageway are designed applying minimum parameters called for regulations and with safety barriers against or close to the interior border. Nevertheless, Spanish technical regulations and international bibliography recommend to make a previous study with the purpose of finding alternatives instead of installing the safety barriers and, if it would be necessary, installing the safety barrier close to the centre of the median. In this article we analyze the advantages and restrictions of installing the safety barrier close to the centre of the median and we show how safety barriers have been installed in the A-40 dual carriageway, stretch: Villarrubia de Santiago-Santa Cruz de la Zarza, highlighting the aspects that must be taken into account as best practices for road safety and technical regulations.

The first part of this work2 proceeds to determine the relative weightof a series of functional elements in convention building construction as apreliminary to a study of two residential buildings, simulating the intensive application of sistems, products and/or components certified with DIT, DIT Plus and ETA (Spanish technical approvals, Spanish technical approvals plus and European technical approvals) on them. The work concludes highlighting that the number of approvals (DIT, DIT Plus and ETA) issued and the availability of industrialised construction products (fachades, inside partitions, roofing...), available for an estimated 70% of the value of functionalelements in residential buildings. The relatively scant use of industrialised elements (understanding in this point-only in this work context-as the ones approved with the mentioned "documents") in residential construction in Spain cannot, therefore, be attributed to a market scarcity of such elements, components or subsystems.
