As it is known, the immune system found in higher evolutional level biological organisms is a distributed and multilayered system that is robust and able to identify infectious pathogens, injury, diseases, or other harmful effects. Therefore, their properties and abilities — like self-healing or surviving — would be more advantageous in many mechatronic applications, where often are imposed robustness and also high reliability operation requirements. Founded by these observations, the paper is focused on modeling and simulation artificial embryonic structures, with the purpose to develop VLSI hardware architectures able to imitate cells or organism operation mode, with similar robustness like their biological equivalents from nature. Self-healing algorithms and artificial immune properties implementation is investigated and experimented on the developed models. The presented theoretical and simulation approaches were tested on a FPGA-based embryonic network architecture (embryonic machine), built with the purpose to implement on silicon fault-tolerant and surviving properties of living organisms.
The aim of this research work is the analysis of the dimensioning of EC’s of the vertical bearing structures of buildings, within the framework. In the beginning the bearing resistance of spread foundation is analyzed. The aim is to evaluate the method of EC-7 in the light of the safety to be demanded according to the current standard and reliability method. The current work describes the opportunity of determining this latter.
The paper presents methods of inspection of masonry arch railway
bridges. Results of a test program are demonstrated where the efficiency of
various non-destructive testing methods for the inspection of arches was
studied. It is shown that non-destructive investigation can provide valuable
information regarding the condition of the bridge and help establishing basic
input parameters for structural analysis and condition assessment.
