Transportation Energy Analysis for Single-Family Residential Construction in California

Tyler Langley

Since the oil crisis of 1973, energy use in the United States of America has been a growing area of concern. Studies have shown that the construction industry is responsible for almost half of all annual energy consumption. With this awareness, the analysis of energy use within the related construction fields has become an emergent subject. One facet of construction energy use that has been less studied than others is that of the energy consumed in transporting building materials from manufacturing plants to construction sites. This thesis proposes a ...


Nonlinear Modeling Of A Sustainable Material, Jorien Gill Baza 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Nonlinear Modeling Of A Sustainable Material, Jorien Gill Baza

Master's Theses and Project Reports

This study developed a nonlinear constitutive model for a sustainable orthotropic material. Existing methods for constitutive models of wood were improved upon to include the nonlinear stress-strain response not only in the two orthogonal axes but at any orientation to the strong axis of the material. This method also simplifies the nonlinear stress-strain relationships into bilinear stress-strain curves which can be valuable in hand calculations as well as finite-element analyses. The effectiveness of the proposed constitutive model is demonstrated by comparing bilinear stress-strain predictions to experimental data.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles For Post Disaster Surveys, Thor Liland Larsen 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles For Post Disaster Surveys, Thor Liland Larsen

Master's Theses and Project Reports

In the current built environment, structures require regular observation and maintenance. Many of these structures can be quite challenging to evaluate. The required scaffolding, lifts, or similar access facilities can become quite costly to rent and construct, and can be a long term disturbance to those who use and manage the particular structure. Furthermore, there are situations where examination for the purpose of detailed analysis can be quite hazardous, if not entirely unsafe for humans. In a post-disaster environment traditional methods may not be safe or adequate for gaining access to parts of a structure that require observation or analysis ...


The State Of Integrated Open Space Planning: Toward Landscape Integrity?, Lindsay Ex 2010 Utah State University

The State Of Integrated Open Space Planning: Toward Landscape Integrity?, Lindsay Ex

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Open space planning has been present within the United States for over a century. Traditionally, open space planning efforts tend to focus more exclusively on either socially-based (e.g., recreational, scenic, or park planning) or ecologically-based (e.g., preserves, habitat networks or more general conservation planning) planning efforts. This separation of ecological and social frameworks in open space planning is reinforced by a persistent cultural model, where community and conservation are seen as opposing forces instead of partners.

While recent open space planning efforts have begun to integrate social and ecological frameworks into one plan, the majority of our knowledge ...


Landscape, Kitchen, Table: Compressing The Food Axis To Serve A Food Desert, Shannon Brooke Elliott 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

Landscape, Kitchen, Table: Compressing The Food Axis To Serve A Food Desert, Shannon Brooke Elliott

Masters Theses

In the past, cities and their food system were spatially interwoven. However, rapid urbanization and the creation of industrialized agriculture have physically isolated and psychologically disconnected urban residents from the landscape that sustains them. Cities can no longer feed themselves and must rely on a global hinterland. Vital growing, preserving, and cooking knowledge has been lost, while negative health, economic, and environmental effects continue to develop from this separation. Low-income neighborhoods have significantly been affected where a lack of income and mobility pose barriers to adequate food access. Architects have addressed food issues individually, but have yet to take an ...


Recommendations For The Chamlidere Petrified Forest Management Plan, Fatma Ertem 2010 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Recommendations For The Chamlidere Petrified Forest Management Plan, Fatma Ertem

Theses and Dissertations

Anything inherited from our ancestors or from nature can be considered as our heritage. Heritage can be classified as cultural and natural heritage. Turkey has been the cradle of many civilizations, religions, and ethnic groups because of the unprecedented natural heritage and critical geopolitical location of Anatolia. Given all the treasure of cultural and natural heritage in Turkey, heritage management practices have not been emphasized as they deserve. A petrified forest was found in Chamlidere, Ankara (Turkey) in 2004. Chamlidere petrified forest preserves information related to the biodiversity of forests in the Galatian Volcanic Province during the Early-Middle Miocene. When ...

Norman Morrison Isham: Newport Restoration Foreshadows Modern Preservation, Alyssa Lozupone 2010 Salve Regina University

Norman Morrison Isham: Newport Restoration Foreshadows Modern Preservation, Alyssa Lozupone

Pell Scholars and Senior Theses

Norman Morrison Isham was an authority on Newport’s Colonial architecture and was hired to guide local restoration projects in Newport, Rhode Island. These projects, ranging in date from 1914 to 1931, included the Redwood Library, the Wanton-Lyman-Hazard House, The Colony House, and the Brick Market. Isham’s work is representative of an early period of preservation, and as such, Isham worked prior modern day historic preservation standards and guidelines. An analysis of Isham’s restoration work in Newport provides insight into the elements that compose his preservation theory and how his theory, as carried out with Colonial era structures ...

Los Mitos De La Inseguridad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Los Mitos De La Inseguridad, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Populismo penal nunca resolvió problemas de violencia, aunque a corto plazo ha permitido la legitimidad política de sus defensores

Como nunca y con una fuerza inusual ha aparecido en esta semana un conjunto de mitos respecto de la inseguridad ciudadana en el país y, lo más grave de ello, que las políticas oficiales y las de la oposición se asientan sobre ellas.

Sin duda, el primero y más importante es aquel que tiene que ver con el peso que se asigna a las demandas de seguridad que vienen de la población, por encima de los hechos de violencia objetivamente producidos ...

El Manicomio Del Futbol Chileno, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Chile acaba de elegir al nuevo presidente de la Asociación de fútbol (ANFP), luego de un tortuoso camino que muestra que este deporte es más que un simple juego o, en otras palabras, que se trata de un fenómeno social que traspasó las barreras de sus propias reglas. A la cabeza del organismo estuvo el Sr. Mayne-Nicholls cumpliendo una gestión reconocida unánimemente: nueva infraestructura deportiva, siembra de bases hacia el futuro, importantes resultados deportivos, cambios en la modalidad de los torneos, jerarquización internacional, exportación de futbolistas y construcción de un estilo de fútbol con identificación ciudadana. Para este proceso hubo ...


Post-Earthquake Housing Recovery In Bachhau, India: The Homeowner, The Renter, And The Squatter, Anuradha Mukherji 2010 East Carolina University

Post-Earthquake Housing Recovery In Bachhau, India: The Homeowner, The Renter, And The Squatter, Anuradha Mukherji

Anuradha Mukherji

This paper looks at post-earthquake housing recovery in Bachhau, a town close to the epicenter of the 2001 Gujarat earthquake in western India. This research examines the difference in housing recovery outcomes among homeowners, squatters, and renters in Bachhau, in order to understand why single-family homeowners and squatters were able to rebuild and improve their housing conditions whereas low-income renters continued to struggle toward housing recovery. This paper shows that communities in Bachhau did not have the resources or capacities to rebuild themselves and that appropriate public assistance was critical for housing recovery. While public assistance was mainly targeted to ...

Quito Imaginada, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

En la actualidad, las ciudades no pueden entenderse exclusivamente desde las lógicas de la distribución espacial de las actividades urbanas. Tampoco a partir de las infraestructuras básicas del transporte o del agua potable, ni desde el valor del suelo o los ingresos del gobierno de la ciudad. Es imprescindible también tener en cuenta lo que piensan sus habitantes, los imaginarios que tienen, es decir, sus ópticas culturales. Los imaginarios no son sino la realidad que percibimos vivir, sentir y experimentar, lo que, a su vez, nos lleva a vivir según sus pautas. Esto significa que los imaginarios configuran la realidad ...
