Skip This Chore: Cleaning Your Air Conditioner Condenser Probably Won't Make It Work Better, David Yuill 2019 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Skip This Chore: Cleaning Your Air Conditioner Condenser Probably Won't Make It Work Better, David Yuill

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

I asked my neighbor who hoses off his air conditioner condenser every spring why he does it. “Because my dad always told me I had to,” he said.

Conventional wisdom like what my neighbor’s dad imparted may always seem right. But through my HVAC scholarship – the study of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems – I’ve learned that this particular presumption is probably wrong.


Prediction Of Stress Increase At Ultimate In Unbonded Tendons Using Sparse Principal Component Analysis, Eric McKinney, Minwoo Chang, Marc Maguire, Yan Sun 2019 Utah State University

Prediction Of Stress Increase At Ultimate In Unbonded Tendons Using Sparse Principal Component Analysis, Eric Mckinney, Minwoo Chang, Marc Maguire, Yan Sun

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

While internal and external unbonded tendons are widely utilized in concrete structures, an analytical solution for the increase in unbonded tendon stress at ultimate strength, fps, is challenging due to the lack of bond between strand and concrete. Moreover, most analysis methods do not provide high correlation due to the limited available test data. The aim of this paper is to use advanced statistical techniques to develop a solution to the unbonded strand stress increase problem, which phenomenological models by themselves have done poorly. In this paper, Principal Component Analysis (PCA), and Sparse Principal Component Analysis (SPCA) are employed ...

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

Circumstances exist that call for the aeromedical evacuation high-level containment transport (AE-HLCT) of patients with highly hazardous communicable diseases. A small number of organizations maintain AE-HLCT capabilities, and little is publicly available regarding the practices. The time is ripe for the development of standards and consensus guidelines involving AE-HLCT.

Hvac System Air Filter Diagnostics And Monitoring, Priotomo Abiprojo, Fadi M. Alsaleem 2019 O'Fallon, MO

Hvac System Air Filter Diagnostics And Monitoring, Priotomo Abiprojo, Fadi M. Alsaleem

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

A system and method for monitoring a heating, ventilation, or air conditioning (HVAC) system of a building is provided. A monitoring server, located remotely from the building, receives operating parameter data from a monitoring device at the building that measures an operating parameter of the HVAC system. The monitoring server generates a plurality of data clusters from the operating parameter data, each data cluster corresponding to operating parameter data generated during steady-state operation of the HVAC system. The monitoring server calculates an average operating parameter value for each data cluster. The monitoring server calculates normalized operating parameter values based on ...


Vivienda Rural Sustentable A Través De Un Módulo Productivo En La Vereda El Destino, Juan Diego Angarita Rivera 2019 Universidad de La Salle, Bogotá

Vivienda Rural Sustentable A Través De Un Módulo Productivo En La Vereda El Destino, Juan Diego Angarita Rivera

Arquitectura

El presente trabajo de grado desarrolla una investigación y propuesta con base a los análisis realizados en la zona conurbada del sur de la ciudad, se plantea generar un concepto de “Territorio sustentable”, con el fin de rescatar y preservar las dinámicas económicas, sociales y culturales del sector campesino históricamente afectado por el conflicto armado en Colombia. Con base a lo anterior, se plantean unos lineamientos de intervención bajo un modelo de territorio alternativo, que articule el sistema de producción agropecuaria del borde sur, fortaleciendo las relaciones urbano-rurales. Como posible solución al modelo expansivo y al crecimiento urbano informal sobre ...

Arquitectura

A través del análisis de diferentes factores de los asentamientos de origen informal y sus principales problemáticas, vistas desde el ordenamiento territorial y de la población que los crean a través de la carencia de medios de vida y unas condiciones dignas para el hábitat de la población y más enfatizando las búsqueda de nuevas alternativas de vida para la población que ha sido victima del desplazamiento por factor del conflicto armado interno que se ha tenido en la historia de Colombia, teniendo una masiva expulsión de la población de su territorio de residencia. Siendo los asentamientos informales una gran ...

The accumulation of water runoff during rain storms is a major problem in New York City’s combination water systems, forcing water treatment plants to release untreated excess water. To avoid overfilling of the sewer system by this grey water, pocket parks and gardens will be used to absorb the excess rainfall. We will be harnessing nature’s resources with current technologies such as: solar panels combined with rain catching canopies, to beautify the environment, educate the public about sustainability, stimulate growth to local businesses through increased foot traffic and bringing social awareness on environmental issues.

The canopies are designed ...


Clt Shearwall Dovetail Connection, Alexander Eduardo Esser, August Messano 2018 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

Clt Shearwall Dovetail Connection, Alexander Eduardo Esser, August Messano

Architectural Engineering

As cross-laminated timber has become an increasingly popular construction material, its use as a shear wall element has also demanded attention. Primary obstructions to the use of CLT shear walls have been the lack of an economic connection type that does not compromise the structural integrity and has the robustness that CLT shear wall panels deserve. Dovetail connections provide a great option for the connection of CLT shear walls. With more experimentation, the optimal dovetail geometry can be further developed. The small-scale testing done in conjunction with this report proved that very deep pins and tails will result in bearing ...
