The decision to take the final step to become a fully qualified architect and sit the Part 3 exam is a daunting journey into the unknown. Fortunately, this new edition of the Part 3 Handbook demystifies the whole process of qualifying, dispelling commonly held myths and offering genuine insight into what examiners really want. Written by an experienced practitioner and Professional Studies Advisor, and endorsed by the RIBA, the book concentrates on the separate elements that you will be assessed on in the Part 3 exam.
ePart 3: Focus on Technology: How do you ensure your organisation gets the most out of the BIM technology available? Dedicated to the main technology-related aspects of a BIM Manager’s role, this ePart explains how to establish and manage an organisation’s BIM-related tool-ecology and how to use BIM in order to link from design to fabrication. What do BIM Managers need to do in order ensure their teams use the right tools for the various tasks in design, construction and beyond? How do they connect them and how do they keep up with updates in this rapidly changing environment. This ePart highlights the challenges BIM Managers need to overcome in software, hardware and network selection. It also brings into focus the opportunities BIM Managers face in the changing context of BIM in the Cloud. Extending beyond technical know-how, it also offers advice on how to create a successful interface between the BIM Manager and the IT specialist(s).

Throughout its many editions, The Architect in Practice has remained a leading textbook used in the education of architects. While the content of the book has developed, the message and philosophy has remained constant: to provide students of architecture and young practitioners with a readable guide to the profession, outlining an architect's duties to their client and contractor, the key aspects of running a building contract, and the essentials of management, finance and drawing office procedure. The eleventh edition follows in that tradition. The text has been brought up to date to ensure it follows the new RIBA Plan of Work 2013 as the guide to the architect’s workflow. In addition, a number of changes to standard forms of contract were made with the publication of the JCT 2011 suite of contracts, and the RIBA Standard Form for the Appointment of an Architect 2010 (2012 Revision). These new forms are fully covered. In addition, the opportunity has been taken to reorganise the layout so that the content flows in a way that is more consistent with current architectural practice, and to deal with the increasing use of BIM. The eleventh edition of The Architect in Practice continues to provide the guidance and advice all students and practising architects need in the course of their studies and in their profession.
This book-size article is dedicated to the numerical simulation of unsteady incompressible viscous flow modelled by the Navier-Stokes equations, or by non-Newtonian variants of them. In order to achieve this goal a methodology has been developed based on four key tools. Time discretization by operator-splitting schemes such as Peaceman-Rachford's, Douglas Rachford's, Marchuk-Yanenko's, Strang's symmetrized, and the so-called theta-scheme introduced by the author in the mid-1980s. Projection methods (in L2 or H1) for the treatment of the incompressibility condition div u = 0. Treatment of the advection by: either a centered scheme leading to linear or nonlinear advection-diffusion problems solved by least squares/conjugate gradient algorithms, or to a linear wave-like equation well suited to finite element-based solution methods. Space approximation by finite element methods such as Hood-Taylor and Bercovier-Pironneau, which are relatively easy to implement. conjugate gradient algorithms, least-squares methods for boundary-value problems which are not equivalent to problems of the calculus of variations, Uzawa-type algorithms for the solution of saddle-point problems, embedding/fictitious domain methods for the solution of elliptic and parabolic problems. In fact many computational methods discussed in this article also apply to non-CFD problems although they were mostly designed for the solution of flow problems. Among the topics covered are: the direct numerical simulation of particulate flow; computational methods for flow control; splitting methods for viso-plastic flow a la Bingham; and more. It should also be mentioned that most methods discussed in this article are illustrated by the results of numerical experiments, including the simulation of three-dimensional flow. easy to implement - as is demonstrated by the fact that several practitioners in various institutions have been able to use them ab initio for the solution of complicated flow (and other) problems.
This is an indispensable collection of statutory and non-statutory materials relating to charity law in England and Wales. Revised to coincide with the implementation of the Charities Act 2011 – a major consolidation of the charity law - the Handbook is an essential reference source for charity lawyers, in-house lawyers, academics, charities and voluntary organisations and their trustees. Available as three paperback volumes, CD-ROM or both (the mixed media option). Statutes range from the Preamble to Charitable Uses Act 1601 to the Finance Act 2011. It also includes relevant provisions covering data protection, company law, gambling and lotteries, minimum wages, freedom of information, discrimination, tax and VAT, along with a wide range of statutory instruments and the latest SORP. New legislation since the second edition includes: Income Tax Act 2007 Corporation Tax Act 2009 Perpetuities and Accumulations Act 2009 Academies Act 2010 Bribery Act 2010 Corporation Tax Act 2010 Equality Act 2010 Charities Act 2011 Finance Act 2011 This edition is also available on CD-ROM, making more than 2000 pages of legislation and guidance portable and easy to search.
The Moody Handbook of Theology leads the beginner into the appreciation and understanding of this essential field of study. It introduces the reader to the five dimensions that provide a comprehensive view of theology: biblical, systematic, historical, dogmatic and contemporary. The apostle Paul wrote that all Scripture is 'profitable for teaching' (2 Tim. 3:16), that Timothy should 'pay close attention to...your teaching' (1 Tim. 4:16), and that leaders should 'be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict' (Titus 1:9). When he wrote these statements, Paul was referring to theology. Beyond giving basic definitions and general descriptions, author Paul Enns summarized the substantial features of theology. In this way, he provides a concise doctrinal reference tool for the newcomer as well as the seasoned scholar seeking a refresher. There are fifty-five informative charts located at strategic points throughout the book.
