    Konvencija o pravicah invalidov zahteva, da so vse informacije dostopne invalidom v njim razumljivi obliki. Namen prispevka je evalvirati proces prirejanja Ustave Republike Slovenije v lahko berljivo in razumljivo obliko s poudarkom na udeležbi lektorjev z motnjami v duševnem razvoju. Štiri člene ustave smo priredile v dve obliki, pri preverjanju pa smo ugotovile, da si lektorji želijo vseh informacij, ki so v izvirnem besedilu člena, vendar v njim razumljivi obliki. Izrazili so željo, da bi ob prvi različici priredbe, zvesti izvirnemu besedilu, imeli tudi razlagalno različico. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities requires that all information is accessible to people with disabilities in an understandable form. The purpose of the paper is to evaluate the process of transforming the Constitution of the Republic of Slovenia into an easy-to-read and understandable form and verification of four articles, emphasizing the involvement of eight proofreaders with intellectual disabilities. Four Articles of the Constitution were adapted in two versions. We found that proofreaders want all the information from the original text of the article, written in an understandable way. They expressed the desire to have an interpretative version of the Article next to the adapted version of article, written in easy-to-read form.

    We compare three nearly optimal quadrilateral finite elements for geometrically exact inextensible-director shell model. Two of them are revisited and one is novel. The assumed natural strain (ANS) element of Ko et al. (Comput Struct 185:1-14, 2017) shows low sensitivity to mesh distortion and excellent convergence behavior for most types of shell problems. The Hu Washizu element with ANS shear strains of Wagner and Gruttmann (Int J Numer Methods Eng, 64:635-666, 2005) allows for large solution steps and is computationally fast. However, both formulations have undesirable weak spots, which we clearly identify by a comprehensive set of numerical examples. We show that a straightforward combination of both formulations results in a novel element that synergizes the positive features and eliminates the weak spots of its predecessors.

    We derive a finite element formulation for modelling fracture in 2d quasi-brittle solids. The kinematics of isoparametric quadrilateral is enriched by strong discontinuity in displacements in order to capture the discrete crack opening and sliding. To describe both the bulk and crack-surface dissipative phenomena induced by the crack propagation, a combination of continuum and discrete damage models is used. The continuum damage model describes dissipation in the bulk, which mainly occurs ahead of the crack front. The discrete damage model includes two uncoupled rigid-damage cohesive laws to deal with fracture energy release due to crack propagation in modes I and II. The numerical solution strategy is based on a local-global operator-split procedure and incorporates a crack-tracking algorithm for enforcing continuity of the crack path. Numerical examples illustrate very satisfying performance of the derived formulation in terms of mesh independency and robustness. The sensitivity of results on material parameters for mixed mode fracture is also illustrated.

    This paper introduces a new framework for understanding, modelling and software engineering in construction information activities. The current framework is based on understanding that products are the results of processes, which are performed by actors. Such frameworks are influenced by the available technology. The Internet of today is supporting also other kinds of human activities: communication and social interactions among humans. The construction industry uses them as well but without having a proper understanding of their role. There is a gap in the current framework. In this paper, the relevant theories to specify this gap in terms of what could exist in theory and what is offered by technology are analysed. As a result, a new framework of construction information activities that fills the gap is proposed. The key concepts and relations among them are identified and elaborated within the existing framework. The framework introduces the third major integrative element of the otherwise fragmented construction information activities the social network the existing two being the physical building and its digital twin. The framework provides a theoretical and conceptual basis for designing, planning, creating, monitoring and evaluating construction-related online services that include a strong social component and use social media services.

    V članku je opisan postopek Caspary, ki je eden izmed postopkov deformacijske analize. Značilnosti tega postopka so testiranje skladnosti geodetske mreže, določitev stabilnosti točk med dvema terminskima izmerama, transformacija geodetske mreže s transformacijo S, izračun premikov in grafična predstavitev vektorjev premikov. V članku je najprej podano teoretično ozadje postopka, nato je postopek uporabljen na primeru simuliranih meritev dveh terminskih izmer. Rezultati postopka Caspary na obravnavanem primeru ne odstopajo bistveno od rezultatov, dobljenih s postopki Hannover, Karlsruhe, Delft, Fredericton, München in z robustnimi metodami.

    The contemporary digital divide is characterised by the uneven distribution of access to information communication technology (ICT), originating in the different motivation, physical access and skills of users. We synthesised existing theories and frameworks to develop and then empirically validate a theoretical model to predict university students' use of online learning resources (OLRs) at the crossroads of formal and informal learning. Because access to digital content may be a bigger issue for students with special educational needs (SEN), we also examined OLR use among this group. Fifty-six students with SEN and 1642 mainstream students participated in the survey. Our main conclusions are as follows. In the whole sample, personal socio-cognitive factors (beliefs, self-efficacy) are the only significant predictors of OLR use. The results suggest that motivational and skills-related differences between students contribute more to the digital divide than do either differences related to unpleasant environmental conditions (eg, inaccessibility, high prices, etc.) or personal context (eg, study-fit, learning preferences, etc.). Separate regressions show that beliefs were significant predictors for both SEN students and their peers, while self-efficacy was a significant predictor for the mainstream students only. Measuring unpleasant environmental factors as a continuum (environmental and contextual barriers) explained OLRs better than solely differentiating between SEN and mainstream students.The contemporary digital divide is characterised by the uneven distribution of access to information communication technology (ICT), originating in the different motivation, physical access and skills of users.
