    Video Sensor Layouts Tyler Garaas Mitsubishi Electronics Research Laboratories The arrangement of video sensors in closed circuit television CCTV systems for instance can have drastic effects on the efficiency and cost of the final system In the present work I describe a tool designed for rapid construction of simulated video sensor layouts that allows quantification of sensor coverage and cost estimation to be determined prior to installation thus avoiding costly changes during or after the installation Most previous work in this area either considers sensor coverage only in a 2D space or requires significant preparation to achieve accurate results in 3D In the present work I describe an implementation of a novel coverage analysis algorithm that uses the geometry of image formation to cast rays from simulated video sensors through the monitored area to estimate sensor coverage at every 3D location Visualization techniques of the acquired sensor coverage data are additionally presented Top A New System Dynamics Framework for Modeling Behavior of Vehicle Sharing Systems Dimitris Papanikolaou Media Laboratory MIT One way vehicle sharing systems are convenient mobility systems consisting of parking stations and a fleet of shared vehicles Users can pick up a vehicle from any station and drop it off to any other station However due to asymmetric demand patterns eventually all vehicles end up at the stations with no demand decreasing throughput performance This paper presents an ongoing research for a new computational framework in System Dynamics that describes distribution of resource allocation in a vehicle sharing system under non homogenous demand patterns by simulating the resource flow between areas of high density to areas of low density as demand pattern changes The framework will be used as study tool to understand behavior and explore organizational solutions Top GRAPE Using graph grammars to implement shape grammars Thomas Grasl and Athanassios Economou SWAP and Georgia Institute of Technology An implementation of a shape grammar interpreter is described The underlying graph theoretic framework is briefly discussed to show how alternative representations from graph theory including graphs overcomplete graphs and hyperedge graphs can support some of the intuitions handled in shape grammars by direct visual computations with shapes The resulting plugin implemented in Rhino code named GRAPE is briefly described in the end Top Automated Energy Model Creation for Conceptual Design Lillian Smith Kyle Bernhardt and Matt Jezyk Autodesk Architects today rarely use whole building energy analysis to inform their early design process During this stage of design the team is responsible for macro level decisions such as basic form and orientation that can have the most significant effects on energy use So why are so few architects using energy analysis tools at this stage In many cases this is because the tools available to perform energy analysis are too complex and time consuming to learn and use during the fast paced conceptual design phase because of the time needed to model and analyze the design Often energy analysis tools are separate standalone applications that require a separate thermal model to be authored This adds more time and complexity and limits the number of professionals experienced with these tools Understanding the results and using them in presentations is also quite difficult in current tools This paper describes a system that can alleviate these problems by automatically generating an energy model from an architect s basic massing model Our approach allows an architect to focus on modeling the building form rather than the thermal zones that are the focal point for most energy modeling software on the market today The architect s massing model can then be modified and the energy model stays in sync allowing comparative analyses to be made quickly and easily Top An Integrated Approach to Algorithmic Design and Environmental Analysis Robert Aish and Andrew Marsh Autodesk This paper describes the motivation and design of DesignScript an end user domain specific programming language for algorithmic architectural and geometric design Furthermore the integration and use of DesignScript within the context of an environmental analysis software application is described that invokes a representative subset of analysis functionality Top Generative Fluid Dynamics Integration of Fast Fluid Dynamics and Genetic Algorithms for wind loading optimization of a free form surface Angelos Chronis and Alasdair Turner University College London The integration of simulation environments in generative performance driven form finding methods is expected to enable an exploration into performative solutions of unprecedented complexity in architectural design problems Computational fluid dynamics simulations have a wide range of applications in architecture yet they are mainly applied at final design stages for evaluation and validation of design intentions due to their computational and expertise requirements This paper investigates the potential of a fast fluid dynamics simulation scheme in a generative optimization process through the use of a genetic algorithm for wind loading optimization of a free form surface A problem specific optimization environment has been developed for experimentation The optimization process has provided valuable insight on both the performance objectives and the representation of the problem The manipulation of the parametric description of the problem has enabled control over the solution space highlighting the relation of the representation to the performance outcome of the problem Top Use of Sub division Surfaces Architectural Form Finding and Procedural Modelling Shajay Bhooshan and Mostafa El Sayed Zaha Hadid Architects Growth in the role of simulation in conceptual design and evaluation of building performance is coupled with the need for architects to manage the dichotomy between high resolution geometries used in simulation and lower resolution free form manipulation friendly geometries We argue for the benefits of Hierarchical Subdivision surfaces HSS in this process concentrating specifically on its uses in several areas First we discuss HSS for the design and approximate simulation of Shell structures using particle spring methods and its correlation with FEA analysis Second we show the benefits of HSS for the procedural modeling of large numbers of such shells Third the pre engineering rationalization of such designs is explained and lastly the preparation of such geometries for downstream
