Low-Impact Infrastructure: Development And Design Potential For Surface Application Alternatives For Subsurface Infrastructure In Yellowstone National Park's Upper Geyser Basin, Michael R. Pace 2014 Utah State University

Low-Impact Infrastructure: Development And Design Potential For Surface Application Alternatives For Subsurface Infrastructure In Yellowstone National Park's Upper Geyser Basin, Michael R. Pace

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

In sensitive and iconic landscapes, such as Yellowstone National Park’s Upper Geyser Basin, construction and expansion of visitor services is hindered, and often blocked, by the potential for environmental damage that could occur during the installation of subsurface utilities. These utilities, crucial to the success of development, require an alternative method of installation when placed in locations requiring special consideration and protection.

Yellowstone, in particular, is faced with the responsibility of protecting limited hydrothermal resources while also providing access to the general public. Sub-surface utilities threaten this responsibility due to the unknown nature of much of the subsurface

The Productivity Puzzle: Is It Just About The Data?, Rick Best 2014 Bond University

The Productivity Puzzle: Is It Just About The Data?, Rick Best

Mirvac School of Sustainable Development

Measuring construction industry productivity at any level above that of site activities such as bricklaying or plastering remains a vexed question. A variety of methods have been developed and tested but results are often far from consistent with different methods that appear equally valid in theory producing quite different results. A recent study conducted in Australia demonstrated the application of different methods that produced some similar results but with some care required in the analysis of the outcomes. Another example showed large variations in results following the application of a similar method to different yet apparently equally valid datasets. Analysis ...

Sismos, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2014 SelectedWorks

Sismos, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Nuevamente la madre naturaleza nos muestra que está con vida; es decir, que se mueve, que llueve, que tiene calor y que se transforma, a pesar de que nos resistimos a creer que sea así. Muestra de ello tenemos que la llamada falla de Quito -que tiene más de 50 kilómetros de largo y una profundidad no mayor a 15 kilómetros- se activó el pasado martes cuando se sintió un sismo de 5.1 grados en la escala de Richter, que tuvo como epicentro la zona este de Calderón en el norte de la ciudad y una profundidad de 5 ...

El Estadio Atahualpa, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El Ministerio de Deportes ha levantado la discusión sobre la remodelación del Estadio Olímpico Atahualpa, que debería ir más allá de responder una pregunta colgada en la web oficial del Ministerio. ¿Por qué se pregunta ahora y no a principios de año cuando se presentó la maqueta del supuesto proyecto de restauración?


Measuring The Adoption Of Development Management Policies As An Instrument Of Disaster Mitigation Toward Resilient Coastal Communities In Florida, Asmaul Husna 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Measuring The Adoption Of Development Management Policies As An Instrument Of Disaster Mitigation Toward Resilient Coastal Communities In Florida, Asmaul Husna

Community and Regional Planning Program: Student Projects and Theses

Coastal hazards have been known as the scariest group of hazards, monsters that threaten 39% of the nation population and in less than 10 years. With the current population growth, the monsters will harm almost half of the nation’s population (45% to be exact) and uncountable properties placed at only 17% of land area of the country. The threat of coastal hazards has never been low, but it keeps rising because no human being in this world can prevent, stop, contain or avoid the hazards from happening. But, there always are ways to lower the risk and the loss ...


An Interpretive Plan Guide For Wilderness Park In Lincoln, Nebraska, Rachel J. Ward 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

An Interpretive Plan Guide For Wilderness Park In Lincoln, Nebraska, Rachel J. Ward

Community and Regional Planning Program: Professional Projects

Wilderness Park, located in Lancaster County, Nebraska, is a public park of unique ecological and historical value to the city of Lincoln and to the surrounding region. The natural and historical features of the park present an opportunity to communicate environmental and historical topics that are relevant on local, national, and global levels, as well as inspire a lively sense of pride in the community. The problem is that many topics relevant to Wilderness Park are not currently being interpreted at the park, and that there are relatively few interpretive resources available to park visitors.

The purpose of this project ...


Impacts Of Daylighting On Preschool Students' Social And Cognitive Skills, Safak Yacan 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Impacts Of Daylighting On Preschool Students' Social And Cognitive Skills, Safak Yacan

Interior Design Program: Theses

The focus of this study is the element of daylight in preschools and its social and cognitive effects on preschoolers. The current study is a correlational study that assesses infants’ social and cognitive developments, and daylight in preschool classrooms. Participants were 69 children (30 boys and 39 girls), aged from four to five, who enrolled in two different early childhood facilities in Van in Turkey. It was hypothesized that preschoolers’ social and cognitive skills would be correlated with daylight in preschool classrooms. Results revealed that there was a crucial correlation between preschool students’ social behavior and cognitive skills and daylight ...


Roman Baths At Antiochia Ad Cragum: A Preliminary Evaluation Of Bath Architecture As Social Signals In The Ancient Mediterranean World, Holly J. Staggs 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Roman Baths At Antiochia Ad Cragum: A Preliminary Evaluation Of Bath Architecture As Social Signals In The Ancient Mediterranean World, Holly J. Staggs

Anthropology Department Theses and Dissertations

In Rough Cilicia, monumental public architecture was built in the initial phase of the social and political formation of Asia Minor into the Roman Empire during the Imperial Period. As bathing complexes are the most abundant and diverse types of architecture in this region, it would be beneficial to analyze the role of the baths along with their importance in this new Greco-Roman society. This study will focus on two baths at the site of Antiochia ad Cragum, seating this effort in multi-level signaling theory to understand local scale patterning and revised world systems theory to understand regional scale patterning ...


¿Silenciar Al Metro De Quito?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2014 SelectedWorks

¿Silenciar Al Metro De Quito?, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Ha transcurrido la primera semana desde que se abrieron los sobres de la licitación del Metro de Quito, lo cual ha generado un saludable debate en la ciudad. La discusión empezó por la viabilidad financiera, debido a que las ofertas superaron el precio referencial propuesto por la Administración Municipal. Luego siguió por el diseño zigzagueante de la ruta que encarece el proyecto, genera mayor longitud y contiene paradas distantes. Ahora se suman a la discusión las alternativas posibles al sistema de movilidad y, por eso, a la reflexión del conjunto de la ciudad.


Greta Place As A Historic District, William Riggs 2014 California Polytechnic State University

Greta Place As A Historic District, William Riggs

William W. Riggs

This report, forwarded to the City of San Luis Obispo's Cultural Heritage Commission proposes Greta Place as a mid-century modern historic district. Greta is a small street located centrally in San Luis Obispo, CA (See Figure 1). It has a unique and distinct mid-century presence that is both a well-preserved and concentrated example of a collection of Mid-century single-family homes produced in San Luis Obispo as the City began to expand in the 1950s. It specifically called out in the City’s Historic Context Statement when it describes the street as “a cohesive collection of one-story Mid-century Modern houses ...

An Emerging Vocabulary: Architecture Of Performance, Jeremy H. Stock 2014 University of Kentucky

An Emerging Vocabulary: Architecture Of Performance, Jeremy H. Stock

Kaleidoscope

Re-chartered at the University of Kentucky in 2005, the Triangle Fraternity – a brotherhood of students studying Architecture, Engineering, and Sciences – now seeks to establish a visible presence by building a new fraternity house on-campus. To enable this investigation, professors Gregory Luhan, Peyman Jahed, and Bruce Walcott developed a design + energy studio experience that provided a framework for an integrated design team to use a systems-thinking approach to generate a range of scalable, net-zero energy prototypes. These prototypes can be applied in a variety of contexts and have the potential to address larger issues, such as energy efficiency and environmental stewardship ...


El Metro De Quito, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2014 SelectedWorks

El Metro De Quito, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Luego de casi cinco años de discusiones, de estudios, de propuestas y de marketting político hemos llegado a la hora de la verdad en la construcción del sistema masivo de transporte público de la ciudad de Quito. Esta semana se abrieron los sobres de la licitación convocada, sobre la base de los estudios hechos por Metro Madrid, para las obras del Metro, donde se observa que la base referencial del concurso de ofertas del proyecto del Metro se queda corta respecto de las propuestas recibidas: el precio referencial fue fijado en la cantidad de 1.504 millones de dólares, lo ...


At The Periphery Of Architectural History – Looking At Eastern Europe, Carmen Popescu 2014 Purdue University

At The Periphery Of Architectural History – Looking At Eastern Europe, Carmen Popescu

Artl@s Bulletin

Long-time absent or only briefly mentioned for those examples fitting into the schemata, Eastern Europe has started to integrate in the past few years the mainstream discourse of architectural history. The reason of this inclusion is to be sought for not only in a certain globalization – both of the practice and of the academic discipline – but also in the mutations operated recently in the field of architectural historiography. However, in spite of the renewed context, Eastern Europe remains still marginal, both geographically – though globalization turned peripherality into a relative issue – and disciplinarily. The paper looks at Eastern European architecture as ...

Daily Border Crossings: Negotiations Of Gender, Body And Subjectivity In The Lives Of Women Workers In Urban Malls., Rachana Johri Dr., Krishna Menon Dr. 2014 Cleveland State University

Daily Border Crossings: Negotiations Of Gender, Body And Subjectivity In The Lives Of Women Workers In Urban Malls., Rachana Johri Dr., Krishna Menon Dr.

Cultural Encounters, Conflicts, and Resolutions

The last two decades have seen the emergence of not just new markets but new market spaces that provide a visual experience of products and persons that closely approximates the field set up by the global media. Malls represent the concrete representations of unabashed celebration and acknowledgment of desire. Malls are one of the spaces that shape everyday lives suggesting the rightfulness of fulfilling sexual, cultural, social and gastronomic desires. One ‘category’ of persons presumably shaped by these spaces are those who work in them. Our concern is particularly with the negotiation of body and subjectivity as women travel daily ...


Live Programming For Robotic Fabrication, Jason Lim 2014 McMaster University

Live Programming For Robotic Fabrication, Jason Lim

Journal of Professional Communication

Industrial robots are general-purpose machines. To perform a specific task, a robot is given instructions. This process is referred to as robot programming and can be approached in several ways. In online/teach programming, an operator controls the robot using a teach pendant and leads it through its task. This is recorded and can be replayed. In offline programming, instructions are pre-written in a programming language on a separate computer and then sent to the robot for execution. Referencing the field of computer music, this paper explores an alternative approach – live programming. Here, instructions are written and edited on-the-fly, triggering ...
