Using Case Studies To Characterize The Broader Meaning Of Engineering Design For Today’S Student, Pamalee A. Brady, John W. Lawson 2011 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Using Case Studies To Characterize The Broader Meaning Of Engineering Design For Today’S Student, Pamalee A. Brady, John W. Lawson

Architectural Engineering

Numerous organizations have undertaken the task of envisioning the education required to meet the engineering demands of the future. The ABET study EC2000, ASCE’s Civil Engineering Body of Knowledge and Body of Knowledge 2 and the National Academy of Engineering have documented the need to change engineering education from its historical focus on technical content knowledge to include greater emphasis on professional issues and to integrate engineering practice into education. To this end teaching methods such as project-based learning, and the use of case studies are being explored to address these broader learning outcomes. Case studies in particular facilitate ...


Review Of Sarah Garland, Gangs In Garden City: How Immigration, Segregation, And Youth Violence Are Changing America’S Suburbs, William Riggs 2011 University of California - Berkeley

Review Of Sarah Garland, Gangs In Garden City: How Immigration, Segregation, And Youth Violence Are Changing America’S Suburbs, William Riggs

City and Regional Planning

Enthnoburbs; immigrant enclaves in suburban ghettos; suburban balkanization; these are not new topics, but they are new to the “garden city” Long Island suburbs described by Sarah Garland in her book Gangs in the Garden City: How Immigration, Segregation and Youth Violence are Changing America’s Suburbs. In a tone that echoes Françoise Gaspard’s description of extremely polarized, segregated suburbs around Paris (Gaspard 1995), Garland grapples not only with the inner workings of “one of the world’s most dangerous gangs” but also with cultural divides that are fracturing families and communities.

A Financial Impact Assessment Of Ld 1725: Stream Crossings Presentation, New England Environmental Finance Center 2011 University of Southern Maine

A Financial Impact Assessment Of Ld 1725: Stream Crossings Presentation, New England Environmental Finance Center

Economics and Finance

This report looks at the potential financial impact of LD 1725 on the estimated 30,000 stream crossings in the State of Maine that would be affected by the law. Our research for this report included the analysis of nearly 2000 stream crossings and the data collection necessary for the development of extensive stream crossing replacement cost models. We found that the 1.2 bankfull requirements in LD 1725 would result in a 75% ‐ 250% increase in structure widths for stream crossing projects across the state. An upsize of this magnitude would increase the cost of replacing stream crossings statewide ...


Glass House For Diver, naf architect & design 2011 Washington University in St. Louis

Glass House For Diver, Naf Architect & Design

Building Case Studies

Overall composition of the building consists of roof and transparent glass to enclose interior space with the aforementioned concrete block structure. There is no roof over the concrete blocks. Therefore rays of the sun pour over the blocks, and the reflection of the light shines inside the house. Furthermore, vines of various flowers will be planted along the block, changing breakwater-like structure to a hill of flower and greenery in the future.

Each template was cut from PETG (glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate) sheets, before being thermoformed into shape using a neatly designed adaptable mould. This material can either be produced from recycled plastic, or more pertinent to this location, from sugar cane: a plant that has been an integral part of the culture of Louisiana for over 200 years.


Zahner Factory Expansion, Crawford Architects 2011 Washington University in St. Louis

Zahner Factory Expansion, Crawford Architects

Building Case Studies

The final graphite concept sketch drew inspiration from multiple patterns to create a form that was specific to the proportions and context of the expansion. Once the sketch was complete, a computer based algorithm converted the sketch’s tonal values into a 3-dimensional digital surface model of the façade. The resulting form grows out of the rigid, solid geometry of the existing building’s east façade with a single sweeping motion, and increases in complexity as it moves around the corner to the west, paying tribute to both Zahner’s past and future.

Church Of Seed, O Studio Architects 2011 Washington University in St. Louis

Church Of Seed, O Studio Architects

Building Case Studies

Church of Seed has a raw, natural and non-decorative material language. The main structure is constructed by in-situ concrete with bamboo formworks. In-situ concrete construction is economically sound and practical for local builders. The bamboo texture left on the concrete surface reduces the massiveness of concrete wall and harmonizes with the surrounding trees and green landscape. Plus the transparent windows and doors, and the handmade bamboo furniture by local farmers, the presence of the church is humble and close to village life.

Archeological Survey Investigations At Martin Creek Lake State Park, Rusk County, Texas, Timothy K. Perttula, Bo Nelson, Jon C. Lohse

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

An intensive cultural resources survey was conducted at Martin Creek Lake State Park by the Center for Archaeological Studies and Archeological & Environmental Consultants, LLC in June 2010 under contract with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Although previous investigations had been carried out in the park, no comprehensive survey had been completed that would allow TPWD and park management personnel to appropriately manage the park’s cultural resources in accordance with state law. During the 2010 survey, the park was stratified into areas with high, medium, and low probability of containing archaeological sites. A total of 423 shovel tests were excavated in these areas; four new sites were documented and nine previously reported sites were revisited and assessed. These 13 sites reflect historic era occupations in the park dating from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s and prehistoric occupations that include Late Archaic, Woodland, and Caddo components.
