Green School, Healthy School? The Role Of Children In Post-Occupancy Evaluation To Determine Indoor Air Quality In Classrooms, Andrea S. Wheeler 2015 Iowa State University

Green School, Healthy School? The Role Of Children In Post-Occupancy Evaluation To Determine Indoor Air Quality In Classrooms, Andrea S. Wheeler

Andrea S. Wheeler

Issues of internal and external air pollution, common diseases afflicting children, and concerns for optimizing learning potential are all important factors to consider in post-occupancy evaluations of air quality in schools. However, children’s perspectives on air quality are largely overlooked. Developing an appropriate methodology to include children is both important and institutionally difficult. This paper examines child-friendly methods of conducting post-occupancy examination of indoor air quality in school settings. It proposes interdisciplinary work on post-occupancy methodologies, engaging with social-science literature on research with children. The paper identifies barriers to the development of an inclusive post-occupancy methodology that can collect ...

Conformity Of House Physical Condition And Socio-Economic Mobility In Post Disaster Resettlement, Anggraeni Puspitaningtyas, Happy R. Santosa, V. Totok Noerwasito

Innovative Research Publications IRP India

Mudflow disaster damage job opportunity, disrupt social life and settlement, thus requiring resettlement. Need to understand whether physical condition of resettlement is in accordance with background and housing preference of victim, due to significant differences of housing design. Aspects studied were characteristic of resettlement, physical condition of house and socio-economic mobility. Research was done using qualitative method. Technique of data collection was used retrospective interviews and observation. This research result indicates that most participants experienced conformity in house physical condition and socioeconomic mobility. Reason of unconformity condition is housing facility which has not meet housing standard.

Building A Shared World As A Definition Of Sustainable Architecture?, Andrea S. Wheeler

Andrea S. Wheeler

Whilst the current debates on sustainable architecture is dominated by a conversation about energy performance and abstract certification—each easily manipulated to serve commercial gain—I argue that a philosophical reconsideration of relationality is key to a sustainable built environment, examining sustainable architecture.

Portland State University School Of Business Administration (Sba) Renovation + Personal Comfort Investigation, Abolfazl Mekanik, Corey Griffin, Louise Foster

Student Research Symposium

This poster discusses the results of a field study about indoor thermal comfort, based on investigations in Portland State University`s School of Business (SBA) classrooms. The field study was conducted by physical parameter monitoring and questionnaires. Both field monitoring and occupant surveys were performed at the same time during the regular class period.The measurement campaign consisted of measuring the environmental parameters such as temperature (Ta), relative humidity (RH), CO2, and sound levels. The outdoor air temperature, humidity, and sound were registered every 2 hour period during class time. The intention for this project is to investigate thermal ...

The Role Of Healing Gardens, Kalina K. Vander Poel

Student Research Symposium

The objective of this research is to observe the use patterns of a healing garden located on the oncology floor of a pediatric hospital. Use patterns recorded through behavior mapping and tracking focus on collecting data related to the type of user, length of stay, and activity. Three user groups (patient, provider, and visitor) stay an average of eight (8) minutes at Randall Children’s Hospital ranging in activity from sit and relax to actively play. Some findings are concurrent with past research while other findings are not. This research serves as an initial set of data to inform the ...


Study On Vibration Isolation Design Of Dual Piezoelectric Cooling Jets, Innovative Research Publications IRP India, Guang-Min Luo, Shiang-Yi Wu 2015 Innovative Research Publications

Study On Vibration Isolation Design Of Dual Piezoelectric Cooling Jets, Innovative Research Publications Irp India, Guang-Min Luo, Shiang-Yi Wu

Innovative Research Publications IRP India

The traditional cooling fans can’t be applied in modern consumer electronic products because the modern electronic products always have slim shapes. In recent years, GE’s Dual Piezoelectric Cooling Jets (DCJ) constructed by piezoelectricity materials had been developed and employed in modern electronic products’ cooling. The main cooling principle of DCJ is utilizing variation of heat field which is conducted by vibration to accomplish heat exchange. However, the vibration generated by DCJ will be transmitted to adjacent devices and cause the extra vibration problems. Appropriate glue and isolated damper; like rubber and cohesive polymer; can reduce the transmission of ...

Effect Of The Physical Environment On Teacher Satisfaction With Indoor Environmental Quality In Early Learning Schools, Stuart Shell 2015 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Effect Of The Physical Environment On Teacher Satisfaction With Indoor Environmental Quality In Early Learning Schools, Stuart Shell

Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research

While the quantity and quality of teacher-child interactions plays a key role in emotional and cognitive development for children, there is scant evidence regarding the contribution of physical environment to child outcomes. This study seeks to understand better the relative importance of variables within the physical environment for occupants. The research design targets teachers’ satisfaction with the physical environment as the outcome variable, based on the assumption that teachers who are more satisfied with their classroom provide higher-quality interactions with children. Teachers from two early learning schools with a total of 31 classrooms completed a written survey that asked about ...

Food For Function Pt. 2, Ryan Desilva

Architecture Senior Theses

This thesis proposes to develop and apply sustainable energy strategies driven by the needs of yet commercial kitchens within the context of adaptive re-use of buildings. Spatializing systems within the framework of building envelopes will minimize energy usage, promote smarter holistic building design; but most importantly, teach culinary students sustainable strategies related to the growth, use and reuse of food as it pertains to the consumption and production of energy.

Green School, Designing For Comfort And Beyond…, Andrea S. Wheeler, Naghmeh Pak, Evan Jeanblanc 2015 Iowa State University

Green School, Designing For Comfort And Beyond…, Andrea S. Wheeler, Naghmeh Pak, Evan Jeanblanc

Andrea S. Wheeler

Comfort is defined through human senses; sight, hearing, smell, touch, and taste. Each sense can lead to a greater or lesser degree of comfort. However, children experience comfort differently than adults. They experience spaces differently and have different knowledge about the performance of a building than adult users; they can also have a perspective on design quality unlike that of the architect. School is a designed environment that a child lives in for over 6 hours a day; it is it is thus argued simply a matter of a child’s right to be consulted about his or her day-to-day ...

Structural Simulations And Conservation Analysis -Historic Building Information Model (Hbim), Maurice Murphy, Conor Dore, Sean Mcthycar, Florin Berechet, Conor Casidy, Evelien Dirix

Maurice Murphy

In this paper the current findings to date of the Historic Building Information Model (HBIM) of the Four Courts in Dublin are presented. The Historic Building Information Model (HBIM) forms the basis for both structural and conservation analysis to measure the impact of war damage which still impacts on the building. The laser scan survey was carried out in the summer of 2014 of the internal and external structure. After registration and processing of the laser scan survey, the HBIM was created of the damaged section of the building and is presented as two separate workflows in this paper. The ...
