design, utopia, alteration, prototyping, Fine Arts, Aesthetics, and BH1-301
The purpose of this paper is to re-explore the relationship between utopia and architecture, trying first and foremost to challenge the way utopia has been conceived by architectural thought: i.e., as the prefiguration of a future seen as an ‘otherness’ distinct from the present, as far as the totality of its spatial, social, and political dimensions are concerned. Such vision – as we will argue – turns out to be deeply linked to a design logic of ‘projection’ and ‘prescription’; this, however, is not the only possible logic of design. Through a reflection upon some contemporary architectural practices, we will try to highlight a new horizon for design action, in which even utopia abandons its traditional ‘projective’ role and takes on a new meaning: rather than being the non-place of a possible future, utopia stands for what doesn’t have place in the present but can emerge from its alteration. Such notion of utopia as a form of ‘situated critique’, in a concrete space and time, helps to dig more deeply into the political potential of many contemporary forms of architectural and urban design.

FINITE element method, PERMANENT magnet generators, and STATORS
Multi-turn resolvers are employed in the applications that high reliability; high accuracy and absolute position measurement are required, simultaneously. They are basically consisted of two individual resolvers in a common frame. In this paper a novel sinusoidal air-gap length multi-turn resolver is proposed. The rotor shape and the winding configuration are designed to achieve single-speed and multi-speed operations using a single rotor and a single stator core. Furthermore, some constraints are laid down and discussed in such a way that the performance of two resolvers has no interference with each other. All the mathematical calculations are validated using time stepping finite element analysis. Finally, a prototype of the sensor is built and tested. Experimental measurements are used to verify the analytical and finite element discussions. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
The article informs that the periodical has partnered with Framer to try and understand how designers use prototyping in interaction design projects and help them to compile a free to access report. It mentions that the partnership help give a proper understanding of whether prototyping is growing within interaction design and able to look in detail at whether prototyping helps to communicate ideas both within organisations and to clients as well as if it improves outcomes for customers.

This contribution describes the concept and implementation for an integration of microcontroller and FPGA based Rapid Prototyping modules into a Remote Lab system. This implementation enables a Web-based access to electro-mechanical models. A student uploads a source file implementation to the Remote Lab server in order to test an implementation directly within a hardware environment. The Remote Lab server offers the interfaces to integrate specific project and hardware plug-ins. These plug-ins access a hardware specific software environment to automatically compile and program the resulting firmware. To stimulate this design, the Remote Lab server exchanges digital signals via a serial interface. To allow the student to compare architectures of different designs using the same hardware model, a specific controller (using the Remote Lab interface) can be selected. For this, an IP-based multiplexer provides the control connection between the respective controller and the hardware model. In our contribution we would like to give examples of such a complex design task and how the students can use different tools during several design steps.
COMPUTER software, PROTOTYPES, TESTING, COMPUTER simulation, and DESIGN
A prototyping and simulation tool that supports the development of distributed programs is described. This tool, called Jems, forms a part of Jade, a distributed software prototyping environment. The Jade environment provides tools for the design, implementation, debugging, testing, maintenance, and performance analysis of distributed, concurrent programs. Novel features of Jade include the support of: multi-lingual distributed programs; flexible monitoring of inter-process communication; multiple views into executing programs via a window system; graphical animation of executing programs; and the prototyping of distributed software. This paper presents an overview of the Jade environment, describes the distributed software prototyping tool, and outlines the status of the project. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

Prototype, Algebraic Languages, Distributed Systems, Formal Languages, Semantics, Real-Time System, Design, Specifications, Programming Language, and Programming languages -- Design and construction
The PSDL prototyping language for hard real-time systems is described. The semi-graphical language provides a data flow notation as well as application-orientation timing and control constraints for describing a system as a hierarchy of networks of processing units that communicate through data streams. The basic PSDL constructs are defined in terms of algebraic high-level Petri nets, combining algebraic specifications of abstract data types with the concurrency and process concepts of Petri nets. The high-level Petri nets model the system's casual and timing behavior. The data abstraction facilities define the meaning of PSDL data types. The net semantics provide a basis for applying the analysis techniques and tools of high-level Petri nets.

This paper presents the design, prototyping, and analysis of a relatively small and cheap axial-flux three-phase coreless permanent- magnet generator. The excitation of the machine is done by rectangular flat shaped neodymium-iron-boron magnets. A two-dimensional model of the machine is analyzed with finite-element software to obtain the machine parameters. One special feature of the constructed generator is in the design and prototyping of nonferromagnetic holders to counteract centrifugal forces acting on magnets, especially at high speeds. By implementing the nonferromagnetic holders, one can expect to construct high-speed axial-flux permanent-magnet generators at low cost. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]

The article discusses a theoretical study of the modeling role in the process of artistic and aesthetic representation of objects of subject-spatial environment and reflection of forms and objects of reality in the layout. The essence of the formation process of aesthetic ideology through prototyping techniques and methods, as well as study of the formation sequence of the aesthetic ideal and professional look of the artist-designer on the environment in the process of working on the layout of the manufacturer is examined. The problem of layout creation as a work of art which contributes to the development of artistic taste, aesthetic thinking and perception is considered. The emotional and aesthetic impact on the layout designer's work both on himself and on the viewer, as well as the finished layout, as a work of art, on the mind and emotions of a person are examined in the article.
