A formação tecnológica nos cursos de Ciências da Informação e da Documentação em Portugal : Ronaldo Ferreira de Araújo, Armando Malheiro da Silva, Marlene Oliveira - Araújo, Ronaldo Ferreira de; Silva, Armando Barreiros Malheiro da; Oliveira, Marlene
Discusses the science of information in Portugal with a focus on technology training in this area. Presents the preliminary results of a survey that aims to draw the landscape of information technology and communication while content training in information science in this country. For both analyzes the technological component in the teaching field from seven courses from undergraduate programs in information science and documentation of Portugal. From the document analysis characterizes the technological bases of the courses through the menus, objectives and program content of the disciplines of technology and also analyzes the teaching methods and evaluation procedures employed.

Experimental testing, numerical modelling and seismic strengthening of traditional stone masonry: comprehensive study of a real Azorian pier - Alexandre A. Costa; António Arêde; Aníbal Costa; João Guedes; Bruno Silva
Stone masonry is one of the oldest building techniques used worldwide and
it is known to exhibit poor behaviour under seismic excitations. In this context, this work aims at assessing the in-plane behaviour of an existing double-leaf stone masonry pier by experimental testing. Additionally, a detailed 3D finite element numerical analysis based on micro-modelling of the original pier is presented (fully describing the geometry and division
of each individual elements, namely infill, blocks and joints) aiming at simulating the experimental test results. This numerical strategy can be seen as an alternative way of analysing this type of constructions, particularly useful for laboratory...
