Python recipe to compute the Date of Easter in the Gregorian/Western calendar based on a Gauss's computus algorithm implemented in the Wolfram Language 12.
Code
Sieve of Eratosthenes is a simple and ancient algorithm/procedure used to find the prime numbers up to any given limit. For a given upper limit n the algorithm works by iteratively marking the multiples of primes as composite, starting from 2. Once all multiples of 2 have been marked composite, the multiples of next prime, i.e. 3 are marked composi...

Cilj ovog rada je prikazati utjecaj modeliranja koeficijenta reakcije podloge na jednostavan 3D okvir izložen horizontalnom simetričnom statičkom djelovanju. Budući da rad predstavlja nastavak istraživanja na ovu temu, radi jednostavnosti usvojeno je da je konstrukcija i u ovom slučaju također izvedena na kvadratnim temeljima na granuliranom tlu. R...

The aim of this paper is to show the influence of the subgrade reaction coefficient modelling on the simple 3D frame subjected to horizontal symmetrical static load. Since the work represents a continuation of the research on this topic, it was decided that the construction, in this case too, was built on the square foundations on granular soil. Di...

Glass structures have been increasingly utilised in modern constructions for decades with load-bearing walls or facades as the most common elements. This trend can be also observed in the development of structural systems, production facilities and processing methods for glass. The article is an introduction to the topic of glass used structurally....

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The aim of the paper, as of the previous research continuity, is to show the effects of the subgrade reaction coefficient modelling on the aluminium base grid structure and foundations. That kind of structure is more frequently used for the objects built on the faraway locations because of the small self-weight and small surrounding ground impact....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
During the structural construction on the distant locations, it is necessary to make the foundation with as little ground impact as possible. One of the usual choices is the wood grid construction on the shallow concrete foundations. To define the connection between the soil and foundation, it is necessary to find out the subgrade reaction coeffici...

Sažetak: U ovom radu prikazan je kraći osvrt na fraktale, te neke moguće primjene fraktalne geometrije u arhitekturi i građevinarstvu. Zanimanje za ovom matematičkom disciplinom je u neprekidnom rastu još od kraja 20. stoljeća, kako zbog same očaravajuće ljepote fraktala, tako i zbog općeprihvaćene spoznaje da je dosta oblika u prirodi, ako ne i sv...

This paper presents a brief overview of fractals and some possible applications of fractal geometry in architecture and civil engineering. The interest in this mathematical discipline has been steadily growing since the end of the 20 th century, due to the fascinating beauty of fractals as well as the generally accepted perception that many shapes...

An Euler brick is a cuboid that possesses integer edges a>b>c and face diagonals. If the space diagonal is also an integer, the Euler brick is called a perfect cuboid, although no examples of perfect cuboids are currently known.

The paper presents the influence of the soil reaction coefficient modeling on the 2D frame be-havior. The foundations are square and the ground is granular. Different authors perform dif-ferent expressions for values of the soil reaction coefficient. So, for each of these coefficients, a 2D frame was calculated using the Tower 3D Model Builder prog...

The software solution, that allowing users, students and engineers, to easily determine the values of the soil reaction coefficient (the coefficient of subgrade reaction) and buckling coefficient, has been developed. These are four modules within SE_Calc software, two have been implemented in the object-oriented programming language C#, within Micr...

When performing the objects on the distant locations, it is necessary to make the foundation structure with as little ground impact as possible. One of the usual choices is the rigid steel grid construction on the shallow foundations. Many authors worked on the problem of defining calculation expression for the soil reaction coefficient, which repr...

The aim of the paper is to show the effects of modelling the soil reaction coefficient on the base grid structure and their foundation. That kind of the structure is commonly used for the objects built on the far away locations because of the little environmental ground impact. Basically, the shallow foundation system is supporting grid constructio...

Zbog svojih specifičnosti obnova zidanih objekata od kamena na području Hercegovine je rađena od strane manjeg broja građevinskih firmi. Razlog tome se prvenstveno ogleda u malom broj stručne radne snage i dostupnosti specifičnih alata. Jedna od firmi koja se posebno istaknula u ovom području je firma DZG „Građevinar Fajić“ d.o.o. sa sjedištem u Mo...

For the numerical modeling of the structure it is necessary to know the characteristics of soil under the foundations, so that it can be simulated by the Winkler spring model. Five groups of authors give different expressions for the soil reaction coefficient. In this paper it will be presented the influence of that different coefficients on the si...

In numerical modeling of structures, it is necessary to model the soil on which the structures rest. This soil simulation is performed through the Winkler springs model. In the simplest case of shallow foundations, this is done through the coefficient of soil reaction. Since a large number of authors have dealt with this topic, for the needs of a m...

Pri numeričkom modeliranju konstruktivnih sustava potrebno je simulirati i tlo na koje se taj sustav oslanja. Obično se simulacija tla izvodi putem modela Winklerovih opruga. U najjednostavnijem slučaju plitkih temelja krutost opruga se zadaje preko koeficijenta reakcije tla. S obzirom kako se veliki broj autora bavio ovom tematikom za potrebe pouz...
