Illuminating Urban Agriculture: A New Framework For Understanding Complexity, Helena K. Farrell 2011 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

Illuminating Urban Agriculture: A New Framework For Understanding Complexity, Helena K. Farrell

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Masters Projects

Modern, conventional food systems vulnerable to declining fossil fuel resources are a 21st century plight demanding rapid transition to regenerative agricultural practices. Urban agriculture is currently responding; expanding and diversifying from recent and historic roots worldwide to help meet the needs of contemporary urban dwellers and ameliorate the aftereffects of industrial agriculture.

Urban Agriculture is comprised of many different styles, practices, and modes of production. From traditional to state-of-the-art, they result in a range of landscape typologies occurring around the globe. The tremendous variety creates the need for better articulation and more accurate distinctions between actual urban farm systems. In ...

A Virtual Supply Airflow Rate Meter In Rooftop Air Conditioning Units, Daihong Yu 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

A Virtual Supply Airflow Rate Meter In Rooftop Air Conditioning Units, Daihong Yu

Architectural Engineering -- Dissertations and Student Research

Virtual sensing technology aims to estimate difficult to measure, expensive, or new quantities by using multifarious mathematical models along with non-invasive and low-cost measurements. Such embedded intelligence is a key to improving the performance of building systems in terms of functionality, safety, energy efficiency, environmental impacts, and costs. Considering the progress that has been achieved over many various fields (e.g., process controls, automobiles, avionics, autonomous robots, telemedicine) within the last two decades, numerous intelligent features have been incorporated and enabled that would otherwise not be possible or economical.

To identify the potential opportunities and research/development needs of virtual ...

U.S. Department Of Energy Commercial Reference Building Models Of The National Building Stock, Michael Deru, Kristin Field, Daniel Studer, Kyle Benne, Brent Griffith, Paul Torcellini, Bing Liu, Mark Halverson, Dave Winiarski, Michael Rosenberg, Mehry Yazdanian, Joe Huang, Drury Crawley

Publications (E)

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Building Technologies Program has set the aggressive goal of producing marketable net-zero energy buildings by 2025. This goal will require collaboration between the DOE laboratories and the building industry. We developed standard or reference energy models for the most common commercial buildings to serve as starting points for energy efficiency research. These models represent fairly realistic buildings and typical construction practices. Fifteen commercial building types and one multifamily residential building were determined by consensus between DOE, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and represent approximately ...


Preserving Urban Landscapes As Public History --- A Qualitative Study Of Kensington Market, Toronto, Na Li 2011 University of Massachusetts Amherst

Preserving Urban Landscapes As Public History --- A Qualitative Study Of Kensington Market, Toronto, Na Li

Open Access Dissertations

Situated within the interpretive and critical traditions, this study aims to contribute to one of the continuing primary themes in urban preservation: how to interpret and preserve the intangible values of built environments. A comprehensive analysis of dominant theories of urban preservation forms the conceptual framework within which this dissertation takes place. It starts by locating the intellectual context of preservation in North America, and examines its basic premises and core issues. It identifies three limits to the traditional approach to preservation planning. The complexity and fragility of history, its narrative quality and its particularities, its emotional content and economic ...

La Metástasis Del Cártel De Sinaloa, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq. 2011 FLACSO, Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. Sede Ecuador

La Metástasis Del Cártel De Sinaloa, Fernando Carrión Mena Arq.

Fernando Carrión Mena

En México existía una división espacial de los carteles del narcotráfico: el cártel de Tijuana al noreste, el de Juárez al norte, el del Golfo al Este y el de Sinaloa al oeste. Sin embargo, esta organización se redefine nacional e internacionalmente debido, entre otros, a tres hechos concretos: la reestructuración de los cárteles colombianos luego de la aplicación del Plan Colombia, la crisis económica mundial venida de las hipotecas en los Estados Unidos y la política de guerra implantada por el presidente Calderón en México (Plan Mérida). La nueva estructura de la oferta y, sobre todo, de la demanda ...

Spatial Distribution Of Commercial Banks In Ilorin Metropolis, Kwara State, Nigeria, I B. Abdullahi, M A. Ijaiya, A Abdulraheem, R I. Abdulkadir, R O. Ibrahim

Confluence Journal of Environmental Studies (CJES), Kogi State University, Nigeria

The spatial distribution of banks in any geographic entity determines the level of accessibility to its services by the public. This study examined the pattern of banks distribution in Ilorin metropolis. Field survey was employed in determining the number of available commercial banks and their respective distances between each other. The spatial analysis technique such as the nearest neighbour analysis as used ascertain the degree of clustering, density and the average distance taken to access these services. The study revealed that about 96% of the total number of banks are situated in the Central Business District which exhibited a very ...
