Structural Analysis with SAP2000*

Structural Analysis with SAP2000*

During the utilization of structural analysis software packages, the engineer should be aware of the underlying mathematical models, in order to select the right type of structural modeling, the appropriate numerical solutions, and algorithms and to be able to critically utilize the results of the analysis. For instance, the modeling of the same structure, or even the same structural part with different types of elements, might lead to numerical results of 50%, 100% or ...
Machine Learning

Machine Learning

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms are involved in a vast variety of scientific and industrial projects, contributing to the solution of the emerging problems, from data modeling and analysis to face recognition and self-driving cars. Regardless the practical utilization of machine learning algorithms, their core problem is the construction and training of an Artificial Neural Network, which is inspired from biological neurons -of the human nervous tissue system- which ...
Regression Analysis

Regression Analysis

Statistical analysis demands arise almost in any case where a given dataset is investigated, in scientific research as well as industrial projects. A number of procedures, techniques, mathematical models and computer codes have been proposed, However, they can be grouped in four simple steps: data preprocessing, variables distributions, pairwise correlations, and multivariate modeling. The data preprocessing -or cleaning- although a critical problem of any further step, is often skipped, influencing all the consequent ...
Analysis of Literature

Analysis of Literature

The number of research papers published in scientific journals is exponentially increased during the last years. In a recent study by Van Noorden, based on publications in Web of Science, it is demonstrated that the growth rate of publications, was 1% in the 18th century, to 2 to 3% in the period between the two world wars, and 8 to 9% up to 2010. This evolution of scientific output is equivalent to a ...

Revit Architecture*

Revit Architecture*

The aim of the course is to demonstrate the REVIT software and its real-world implementation in architectural projects. The Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology offered by the software is a design philosophy based on objects rather than drawing lines. This speeds up the drawing process, and automatically produces views, sections, detailing drawings, etc. Topics Building Information Modeling (BIM). Ribbon and essential design commands. Modify menu & Manage. Units and Snaps ...
