The Greatest Advancement Since The Shovel: Remote Sensing On Three Historical Case Studies, Ian B. Kerr

Pell Scholars and Senior Theses

This thesis, as both a research and exploratory-driven investigation, seeks to investigate the effectiveness of using remote sensing technology on historical case studies. If the technology reveals itself to be beneficial in understanding historical landscapes, then it will be prognosticate on future archaeological excavations on those locations, based on the inferences and conclusions, gained from the remote sensing images.

Stormwater Quality And Local Government Innovation, Stacey Swearingen White, Michael R. Boswell Nov 2007

Stormwater Quality And Local Government Innovation, Stacey Swearingen White, Michael R. Boswell

City and Regional Planning

Local governments need innovative practices to address nonpoint source pollution, which has proven to be the Achilles heel of efforts to improve surface water quality in the United States. Studies by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determined that 45% of assessed lakes and 39% of assessed rivers in the nation are polluted, and that agricultural and urban runoff were the primary sources of these problems (EPA, 2000, 2002). New approaches to address runoff are clearly necessary, and their success will depend on local government practices, yet we know little about how and why local governments innovate, particularly in ...

Technology And Design Thinking: A Look At Interior Design Students’ Conceptualizations, Lori A. Brunner Nov 2007

Technology And Design Thinking: A Look At Interior Design Students’ Conceptualizations, Lori A. Brunner

Art and Design Conference Proceedings, Presentations and Posters

The purpose of this qualitative study is to explore interior design students’ understanding of their design thinking, and to investigate how they view digital technology’s role in these activities. The research questions are: 1. How do interior design students conceptualize interior design as a discipline? 2. How do these students conceptualize their design process? 3. What value do students place on the “process book”1 as a representation of their design breadth and depth in a given project? 4. How do students view computer technology’s role in their design thinking and their design products? Participants viewed interior design ...

Lot 30: Rerouting Suburbia, Daniel A. Siedhoff Oct 2007

Lot 30: Rerouting Suburbia, Daniel A. Siedhoff

Theses from the Architecture Program

In architectural practice professionals deal with a number of fascinating issues daily. From clients to contractors, politics to energy concerns, material usage to money management, architects of the world have the amazing task of delivering a product that influences the physical and mental environments of its users. Evolving from a conversation regarding urban sprawl and suburban housing, this project is aimed at finding a way to inform as well as plant a seed of impact in our rapidly expanding cities. Whereas in local contemporary developments like Fallbrook, (a residential development on the northwest side of Lincoln) the single family house ...

Eco-Lodge Lumahai, Dustin L. Wekesser

Theses from the Architecture Program

Every year, millions of vacationers escape their daily routines to find peace and relaxation in tropical locations that differ from the worlds they come from. Vacations are becoming more elaborate and the list of destinations is continually being enlarged as the availability of air travel reaches more and more places. Yet as commercialism enters these regions and investors begin cornering the market, the essence of these once exotic locations seems to get overlooked and in time, ultimately forgotten. Places that once consisted of straw huts and bamboo bungalows are now being confronted with crude, insensitive designs that neglect the landscape ...


A Bus Center, Troy D. Keilig Oct 2007

A Bus Center, Troy D. Keilig

Theses from the Architecture Program

Bus stops and bus shelters vary throughout the world reflecting the environment around them and the needs of the community. From a hard stick in the ground in India, hammocks hanging from a tree in Galapagos, or a rounded glass and steel structure in London; bus stops are simultaneously a gathering place and a place to depart from, a place to watch others and a place to be watched, a place to be protected from the elements while being integrated into the environment. Bus stops are both the beginning and the end.

Doug Suisman (1997, pg. 80) has called bus ...


Crossection: An Exploration Into Assembling Sustainability, Brian Goehle Oct 2007

Crossection: An Exploration Into Assembling Sustainability, Brian Goehle

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The field of architecture sits at a crossroad today, we have an opportunity to rethink the way we design using new materials and building techniques to reduce the negative impact architecture has on the wider environment. As architects, we must critically look at our constructions methods and question whether they are appropriate and the best choices we could be making for the environment. My thesis has generated a framework that used a set of sustainable materials that outperform their conventional alternatives, to produce affordable and highly efficiently built homes that leave a neutral impact on the environment."


Architecture+Design 600, Joseph Krupczynski Oct 2007

Architecture+Design 600, Joseph Krupczynski

MIRA/LOOK: New Visions for Architecture in Holyoke (2008)

This studio promotes creative research and conceptually rigorous design methodologies that aim to illuminate, situate, and contest the complex circumstances within which a truly “sustainable” architecture can emerge — an architecture capable of escaping a narrow technological focus, while addressing the broader social and theoretical implications of sustainability. The interplay between site, culture and program is a key focus of the studio. Through critical assessments of a broad range of specific site conditions students develop investigative strategies for responsive architectural interventions that bridge the gap between theory and practice. This semester we will be working on a series of projects for ...

Post-9/11 U.S. Foreign Aid, The Millennium Challenge Account And Africa: How Many Birds Can One Stone Kill?, Francis Y. Owusu Oct 2007

Post-9/11 U.S. Foreign Aid, The Millennium Challenge Account And Africa: How Many Birds Can One Stone Kill?, Francis Y. Owusu

Community and Regional Planning Publications

President George Bush presented one of his major post-9/11 foreign aid initiatives – the Millennium Challenge Account – as a tool for counteracting both global poverty and international terrorism. The policy is based on the view that poverty and terrorism are linked and therefore alleviating poverty would help combat terrorism. The design and the implementation of the program however suggest that the U.S. government may have other intentions for the MCA, including overhauling the foreign aid regime. This paper discusses the MCA’s effectiveness in addressing both poverty and terrorism by highlighting the complex relationships between them. It also discusses ...

Thinking Outside The Box: New Approaches To Very Large Flexible Diaphragms, John W. Lawson Sep 2007

Thinking Outside The Box: New Approaches To Very Large Flexible Diaphragms, John W. Lawson

Architectural Engineering

This paper discusses the past design practices of flexible diaphragms, the current trend to very large diaphragms, and the new tools available to properly evaluate and engineer these large roof systems. Higher shear demands are accommodated by higher plywood/OSB and steel deck shear capacities accepted by the IBe. A new collective chord technique is presented to more accurately reflect large diaphragm behavior. In addition, these very large diaphragms have significant lateral deflection issues that can now be evaluated in the IBC. The new AF&PA deflection equations for wood diaphragms are presented as well as a technique to compute ...

Deflection Limits For Tilt-Up Wall Serviceability - The History Behind Changes To Chapter 14 Of Aci 318, John Lawson Sep 2007

Deflection Limits For Tilt-Up Wall Serviceability - The History Behind Changes To Chapter 14 Of Aci 318, John Lawson

Architectural Engineering

Tilt-up construction is one of the most ubiquitous forms of commercial construction in many parts of the country. Thanks to its efficient wall and roof systems, more than 700 million ft2 (65 million m2) of tilt-up buildings were constructed in the U.S. in 2006.1
Tilt-up's current popularity is even more remarkable considering that it wasn't until the 1980s that building codes began to recognize the unique design of slender tilt-up wall panels. In fact, it wasn't until ACI 318-992 was published that the design of slender wall panels was codified on a ...
