Using Popular Film In The Architectural History Classroom, Rumiko Handa 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Using Popular Film In The Architectural History Classroom, Rumiko Handa

Architecture Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity

Putting popular films to use in the classroom offers many opportunities, starting with the mass appeal that recent movies bring to the study of architecture. More significantly, film can help to teach how architectural scale and space affect the viewer. The historical inaccuracies of many movies can provide teachable moments for the discussion of significant architectural issues. And, surely most importantly, film can breathe human life into the spaces of architecture, allowing students to meet the audience of architecture—past, present, and future.

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

This is a case study of extensive industry participation in the capstone design course of the Master of Architectural Engineering program at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. This course, entitled Interdisciplinary Team Design Project, pairs teams of professional engineers and students to provide mentoring, assessment, and feedback, as the students work on interdisciplinary teams to design the building systems for a real-world project. For the spring 2010 semester, over 33 industry professionals participated in the course, each contributing approximately 40 to 50 hours of mentoring and assessment. This paper describes the course format and industry involvement, which provides students with ...

Compressed Natural Gas (Cng) Transit Bus Experience Survey: April 2009—April 2010, R. Adams, D. B. Horne 2010 Marathon Technical Services

Compressed Natural Gas (Cng) Transit Bus Experience Survey: April 2009—April 2010, R. Adams, D. B. Horne

Publications (T)

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) commissioned this survey to collect and analyze experiential data from U.S. transit agencies with varying degrees of compressed natural gas (CNG) bus and station experience. This information helps DOE and NREL determine areas of CNG transit bus success and priority areas for which further technical or other assistance might be required to enable success.

Clean Vehicle Education Foundation (CVEF) staff and subcontractors developed a battery of questions and identified 10 transit agencies to represent all U.S. transit agencies that use CNG buses, accounting for ...

Building Main Street: Village Improvement And The Small Town Ideal, Kirin Makker 2010 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Building Main Street: Village Improvement And The Small Town Ideal, Kirin Makker

Open Access Dissertations

Before the American small town was enshrined as an ideal, it was a space of dynamic and pioneering progressive reform, a narrative that has been largely untold in histories of professional planning and landscape history. Archival research shows that village improvement was not simply a prequel to the City Beautiful in the years following the 1893 Chicago Expo, but a rich and complex history that places the residential village at the center of debates about the middle landscape as a civic realm comprised of complimentary and oppositional pastoral and urban worldviews. The second half of the nineteenth century saw an ...


Ghost Houses And Trojan Horses, Ted Shelton, Tricia Stuth 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Ghost Houses And Trojan Horses, Ted Shelton, Tricia Stuth

Ted Shelton, FAIA

The Ghost Houses project was not supposed to be possible—five units of housing and a studio in three structures on a one-quarter acre infill lot with an historic zoning overlay. Yet, by using the history of the site as a wedge, we were able to overcome ossified regulations to create a progressive project consistent with our interest in dense, walkable, mixed-use neighborhoods and architecture that is simultaneously responsive to both its locus and global environmental concerns.

Through an improvised series of requests, meetings, and public hearings, the Ghost Houses became a project that explored the nature of zoning codes ...


Performance Comparison Of Control Methods For Tankless Water Heaters, David P. Yuill, Andrew H. Coward, Gregor P. Henze 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Performance Comparison Of Control Methods For Tankless Water Heaters, David P. Yuill, Andrew H. Coward, Gregor P. Henze

David Yuill

Tankless water heaters (TWH) have several advantages and disadvantages when compared with storage water heaters. One disadvantage is that the outlet temperature of the water is difficult to control. To address this problem, the authors apply seven different control approaches and con- duct experiments to test the effectiveness of each approach. The experiments are carried out on a commercially available electric TWH, using a test method and apparatus developed by the authors. The seven approaches include various configurations of feedback or feed-forward con- trol, or both. One fairly simple approach devised in this project combines feedback and feed-forward control. This ...


Public Private Partnerships: What Does The Future Hold?, Michael Regan, Jim Smith, Peter Love 2010 Bond University

Public Private Partnerships: What Does The Future Hold?, Michael Regan, Jim Smith, Peter Love

Michael Regan

Internationally, Public and Private Partnerships (PPPs) are being used across a wide variety of economic and social infrastructure projects in more than 85 countries. PPPs are a procurement methodology that brings a rigorous risk-weighted approach to major projects using a competitive bid process and private sector expertise and innovation. PPPs are achieving a number of significant improvements in major project procurement and improved public service delivery.This paper considers the prospects of PPPs from the perspective of government clients and their promoters of PPPs and whether current volatility and uncertainty in the capital markets in Australia will affect the feasibility ...


A B Zetas Y La Emigración En México, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

A B Zetas Y La Emigración En México, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

El día lunes se produjo la mayor masacre de migrantes en la frontera de México con los Estados Unidos y según el único sobreviviente de las 73 personas asesinadas -un ecuatoriano- el acto fue perpetrado por la banda criminal de los ZETAS, que les exigió rescates o la realización de varios trabajos como sicarios. Hay que partir señalando que esta banda internacional nació vinculada al Cartel del Golfo, que la mayoría de sus militantes fueron ex-militares que recibieron entrenamiento en Estados Unidos, Israel, y Egipto y que sus actividades la desplegaron en varios países en los ámbitos de la protección ...

La Radio Y El Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

La Radio Y El Fútbol, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

La Radio Quito está cumpliendo 70 años de vida institucional; con esta fecha de aniversario vale realizar un análisis de la relación existente entre el fútbol y este medio de comunicación tan particular: la radio.

Hay que partir señalando que el momento en que se establecen las 17 reglas del fútbol moderno se produce una separación de los espacios del partido (la cancha) con los graderíos propios del espectador. Esta separación produce la necesidad de la integración y, por lo tanto, de contar con medios de comunicación que cumplan con esta función. Primero fue la prensa, a través de los ...


Construction Cost Models, Barry Dikeman 2010 New England Environmental Finance Center

Construction Cost Models, Barry Dikeman

Economics and Finance

The following are a series of cost estimate models similar in format to a typical engineer’s estimate that were developed in support of our financial impact assessment report for LD 1725. The models us current material costs, labor costs, and equipment costs for the region to provide a comparative cost analysis of seven culvert replacement scenarios. The models provide information about what the cost impact of LD 1725 would be for typical culvert replacements in Maine. However, due to the inherent restrictions of the cost modeling framework we were not able to include the abundance of variables that would ...


Owen Jones And The Conventionalization Of Ornament, John Kresten Jespersen Ph.D. 2010 Rhode Island College

Owen Jones And The Conventionalization Of Ornament, John Kresten Jespersen Ph.D.

Kresten Jespersen

Owen Jones, an architect and theorist of ornament, is best remembered as an ornamenter of distinction. His theory and practice of conventional ornament, his powerful color, and his original forms which had their origins in the ornament of the Alhambra substantiate the claim that he was the greatest ornamenter of his age. The book analyzes the theory of conventionalization as it applies to ornament, color, architecture and interior design. In particular, the book explores repose as the psychological and spiritual outcome of his ornament.

Las Tasas, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Las Tasas, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

Nuevamente han vuelto las discusiones alrededor de las tasas en Quito. No hace mucho fue respecto de lo que el usuario pagaba al salir del aeropuerto, si era tasa o tarifa; lo cual definía si el servicio era público o privado. Y ahora vuelve el tema de las tasas con el sistema de financiamiento propuesto por el municipio para la construcción de 12 vías consideradas prioritarias, que también tiene efectos estructurales.

Lo primero que se debe analizar es la diferencia existente entre impuesto y tasa; porque mientras el primero hace referencia al pago obligatorio que deben realizar los/as contribuyentes ...


Fútbol Y Literatura, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2010 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

Fútbol Y Literatura, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

La relación entre fútbol y literatura ha cambiado en el tiempo, pero siempre ha estado presente a través de los ensayistas, poetas, periodistas, novelistas y cuentistas, unos a favor y otros en contra. Hay dos grupos de escritores: los que admiran al fútbol al extremo que lo han convertido en un recurso creativo y los que explícitamente lo odian. Esta clara división muestra que esta relación no fue armónica desde el principio, aunque posteriormente la balanza se haya inclinando hacia los que lo defienden y lo usan para la creación, beneficiando tanto al fútbol como a la literatura.

El sector ...


Hot Swap, Brian J. McCracken 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

Hot Swap, Brian J. Mccracken

Theses from the Architecture Program

Project Abstract : The current home personal computer allows for the exchange of parts so the user can easily upgrade or repair components as the users needs change. Hot Swapping, is the process of exchanging, upgrade/downgrade components with in a computer while the system is fully operational. The idea of maintaining a complex computer system, while it is fully operational and certain components can be exchanged as needed, has direct applications to the construction of a modern home. Current stick-frame housing techniques for home construction do not easily allow for major changes, or updates to the system, without portions of ...
