The study of interior design is exhilarating! It is a field filled with creative excitement, innovative beauty, and dynamic design! As a profession, it is never static or predictable primarily because the focus is on PEOPLE! Interior Design provides students with an introduction to the history and how-to's of the profession while expanding into business practices, career specializations, and educational requirements. In combination with the teaching package, students learn about the design process; the importance of color and light; historical influences such as furniture and architectural styles; and the human element such as sustainability, aging-in-place, universal design, anthropometrics, proxemics, and ergonomics.
Photoshop for Interior Designers introduces step-by-step techniques for interior designers to successfully use Adobe Photoshop to visually communicate their design concept through graphic images and to illustrate design ideas through a visual thinking process. Instructions show how to integrate hand drawings and freehand sketches into digital drawings. Basic and advanced techniques presented include creating floor plans and elevations, preparing perspectives or isometric drawings, and applying materials, lightings, background and entourages for interior design presentations. Taking a multi-media approach, the text demonstrates how to use Photoshop to refine and modify drawings created in Google Sketchup, AutoCAD and other 3D software programs, and introduces how to use InDesign to seamlessly create graphic layouts for presentation to clients.
THE "Voyages Extraordinaires" of M. Jules Verne deserve to be made widely known in English-speaking countries by means of carefully prepared translations. Witty and ingenious adaptations of the researches and discoveries of modern science to the popular taste, which demands that these should be presented to ordinary readers in the lighter form of cleverly mingled truth and fiction, these books will assuredly be read with profit and delight, especially by English youth. Certainly no writer before M. Jules Verne has been so happy in weaving together in judicious combination severe scientific truth with a charming exercise of playful imagination.
Our heavy dependence on systems that are automatically controlled is undeniable. Many such systems can be found in nature; others are man-made. A primary component of such systems is a device or mechanism called the controller. In man-made systems, one must first design and then implement such a controller, either as a piece of hardware or as software code in a computer. The process of developing a controller can be dramatically improved if one can generate an appropriate dynamic model of the system under consideration. Robust Control Design: A Polynomial Approach explains how to develop such controllers for system models with uncertainty. In many cases, dynamic models can be expressed in terms of linear, time-invariant equations, or transfer functions. The book presents powerful, new methods for the robust design of system controllers, especially for systems with parameter uncertainty. The book's approach is based on the Nyquist Theorem, exploiting the properties of polynomials and polynomial value sets. The most promising techniques are those derived from the Finite Nyquist Theorem (FNT) and its corollary, The Finite Inclusions Theorem (FIT). These results reduce the problem of synthesizing a robust controller to an iterative process in which each iteration solves a finite number of linear inequalities in the controller parameters. This formulation facilitates the development of methods for robust D-stabilization and robust multiobjective performance synthesis and can lead to a less conservative design. Furthermore, it provides new insight into the robust control synthesis problem and allows greater flexibility in the choice of controller order. Computationally efficient robust control algorithms can be developed using these results and then implemented in software, thus automating the design process. The focus is on single-input-single-output systems, but the final chapter lays the foundation of robust multivariable design.
