Life-Cycle Cost Design Of Deteriorating Structure, Dan M. Frangopol, Kai-Yung Lin, Allen C. Estes Oct 1997

Life-Cycle Cost Design Of Deteriorating Structure, Dan M. Frangopol, Kai-Yung Lin, Allen C. Estes

Architectural Engineering

A lifetime optimization methodology for planning the inspection and repair of structures that deteriorate over time is introduced and illustrated through numerical examples. The optimization is based on minimizing the expected total life-cycle cost while maintaining an allowable lifetime reliability for the structure. This method incorporates: (a) the quality of inspection techniques with different detection capabilities; (b) all repair possibilities based on an event tree; (c) the effects of aging, deterioration, and subsequent repair on structural reliability; and (d) the time value of money. The overall cost to be minimized includes the initial cost and the costs of preventive maintenance ...

Passing Through: An Enquiry Into Boundaries, Benjamin Pell May 1997

Passing Through: An Enquiry Into Boundaries, Benjamin Pell

Architecture Thesis Prep

"This thesis is intended as an enquiry into the origins of discipline and its subsequent representations through the twentieth century. This proect will examine issues of surveilance and control, coundary and institutions, as a contemporary critique of nineteenth century practices of formation and re-formation. Furthermore, the investigation will examine the evolution of institutional confinement, and propose a re-sacrilization of punishment through rituals of discipline.


Sensitive Urban Mass, Thomas Zoli May 1997

Sensitive Urban Mass, Thomas Zoli

Architecture Senior Theses

Even with little remaining industrial presence in Amsterdam, NY the relics of industrial prosperity still hold an important urban identity. They represent the city as it was originally designed. I propose that by reprogramming a large section of integrated, industrial urban fabric, it is possible for the city to reclaim its identity and grow. Most early American industrial architecture is inherently urban. only later when planning boards purged industry from the city center because of the side effects if an industrial core, did the evolution on the industrial satellite city emerge. The mill (grist, textile, powder, etc.) was the urban ...

Sustainable Community Planning: Lessons From The Netherlands, Margot Mcdonald Apr 1997

Sustainable Community Planning: Lessons From The Netherlands, Margot Mcdonald

Architecture

In 1990, the Dutch Government adopted a national plan to develop integrated and comprehensive policies that would respond on a national, regional, and local level to the need for improved environmental quality for the welfare of current and future generations. The program, called the National Environmental Policy Plan (NEPP), represented a bold effort to develop cooperation and shared responsibility between the public and private sectors setting goals for reduced energy consumption, resource utilization, and improved environmental quality including the reduction of SO2, NOx, and CO2 emissions. This paper reports on key elements of the NEPP and related ...


Arts Resources For Children And Youth In Philadelphia, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert Apr 1997

Arts Resources For Children And Youth In Philadelphia, Mark J. Stern, Susan C. Seifert

Arts Resources for Children and Youth in Philadelphia—1995-1997

This report, commissioned in 1995 by The Pew Charitable Trusts, presents findings of a study of arts and cultural resources for children and youth in Philadelphia. The purpose of the project was to examine access to and opportunities in the arts for young people and assess the strengths and weaknesses of the citywide system. The project used two perspectives to assess resources. First, the research team developed a geographic data base of existing nonprofit youth arts providers and arts in the public schools. This was combined with US census data to examine the geography and socio-economic context of existing services ...


Assessing The Future Of The New England Mill Town: What Are The Key Factors That Lead To Successful Revitalization?, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval Apr 1997

Assessing The Future Of The New England Mill Town: What Are The Key Factors That Lead To Successful Revitalization?, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

Over the past twenty years, we have been involved in economic revitalization projects in more than 50 mill towns across the state of Massachusetts. We begin these projects with a quiet visit to each community.

Moving off a state or interstate road, we meander down through a highly dense village of multiunit tenements. Built close to the road, they are always a decided mix of well-kept and decaying structures. They are rarely one or the other entirely. It is as if the residents and owners are undecided about reinvestment or commitment to the community.


Architecture As Gateway: A Cultural Center In Annapolis, Maryland, Stephanie A. Brackbill Apr 1997

Architecture As Gateway: A Cultural Center In Annapolis, Maryland, Stephanie A. Brackbill

Architecture Thesis Prep

"I contend that a gateway can be created to link the two polar conditions without necessarily creating a physical passageway from one condition to the other, but by creating a link between past and present; A link between humanity and nature; a link between ignorance and understanding."


A Diamond In The Square, Christopher Guido Apr 1997

A Diamond In The Square, Christopher Guido

Architecture Thesis Prep

"When a traditional city element moves to the suburbs, it is detrimental to the element and to the city. The reinsertion of a separated city element into an urban situation, through the reestablishment of its physics, economic, and social relationship to the city, can serve to benefit the newly placed element and its context."


Sensitive Urban Mass, Thomas Zoli Apr 1997

Sensitive Urban Mass, Thomas Zoli

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The issue to be tested is the notion that the formal structure of a multidisciplinary building of this type is analogous to the formal structure of the campus itself; buildings and departments organized strategically to promote a collective, academic atmosphere.

The program is a Center for Nonlinear Research on the campus of Princeton University."

Reliability Of Reinforced Concrete Girders Under Corrosion Attack, Dan M. Frangopol, Kai-Yung Lin, Allen C. Estes Mar 1997

Reliability Of Reinforced Concrete Girders Under Corrosion Attack, Dan M. Frangopol, Kai-Yung Lin, Allen C. Estes

Architectural Engineering

Corrosion of reinforcement is a major problem affecting a large number of reinforced concrete structures. At present, most reliability-based design studies of reinforced concrete structures do not consider the effects of corrosion. In this paper, we present a reliability-based approach to the design of reinforced concrete bridge girders that are under corrosion attack. Both reserve and residual reliability constraints are satisfied. The approach is based on the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) standard specifications for highway bridges and on data of chloride corrosion of steel in concrete. First, the effects of corrosion on both moment and ...

The Impact Of Population Increase On Residents' Perceptions Of Their Quality Of Life [Abstract], James J. Potter, X. Winston Yan, Rodrigo Cantarero, Blanca Ramirez Jan 1997

The Impact Of Population Increase On Residents' Perceptions Of Their Quality Of Life [Abstract], James J. Potter, X. Winston Yan, Rodrigo Cantarero, Blanca Ramirez

Architecture Program: Faculty Scholarly and Creative Activity

Throughout the world, people are migrating to find jobs and to seek a better life. As agricultural processors locate plants in rural areas with raw materials and lower labor costs, towns are experiencing pressures. They are experiencing an increase in the number of jobs available and a shortage of affordable housing to meet the needs of a growing population. To better understand the needs and perceptions of residents in a small midwestern town (population: 4,151), a multidisciplinary research team from the College of Architecture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln conducted a study between September 1995 and May 1996. The ...
