Thermal Efficiency Characteristics Of Indirect Evaporative Cooling Systems, Ben Costelloe, Donal Finn May 2005

Thermal Efficiency Characteristics Of Indirect Evaporative Cooling Systems, Ben Costelloe, Donal Finn

Conference Papers

Recent developments in enhancing heat transfer in cooling towers, together with the success of chilled ceilings, have prompted a review of the evaporative cooling technique. in temperate maritime climates. The thermal efficiency of such systems is a key parameter, as a measure of the degree to which the system has succeeded in exploiting the cooling potential of the ambient air. This paper presents the results of experimental research into the thermal efficiency of a water-side open indirect evaporative cooling test rig designed to achieve low (1-4 K) approach conditions. Secondary efficiencies in the range 0.24-0.76 have been achieved.

Load Rating Versus Reliability Analysis, Allen C. Estes, Dan M. Frangopol May 2005

Load Rating Versus Reliability Analysis, Allen C. Estes, Dan M. Frangopol

Architectural Engineering

The most common approach to assess the safety of a bridge is load rating. However, this approach cannot quantify the bridge safety in probabilistic terms or fully quantify the structural risk to the bridge. Reliability methods have become an increasingly popular and gradually accepted approach to assess the safety of structures. These methods account for the randomness and correlation of all relevant variables and failure modes in the analysis. This study performs both a load rating analysis and a reliability analysis on the same highway bridge, compares the results, and discusses the strengths and limitations of each approach.


Multi-Generational Housing: A New Model For Residential Design In The 21st Century, Cory Naegele May 2005

Multi-Generational Housing: A New Model For Residential Design In The 21st Century, Cory Naegele

Theses from the Architecture Program

The project suggests a new typology for the family home and neighborhood, one flexible enough to adapt to the variety of needs a family will encounter. The home should be able to transform alongside the transformations in the family structure. The idea is to design a single-family home constructed of mobile, interlocking and interchangeable “kit-of-parts.” These parts would have the ability to be easily assembled, rearranged, or sold to a neighbor. Development is intended for a site in the Goose Hollow neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. The townhouse design uses prefabricated exterior walls, based on a 4’ grid system, which can ...

I P A R K 8 0, Jeffrey O. Scott

Theses from the Architecture Program

This project, ag80, is meant to revive the heritage and promote awareness of the importance of agriculture within the state. The lack of awareness is especially widespread in urban areas, where people may have never seen or experienced a farm. Targeting the urban areas and their lack of awareness will begin to spread the knowledge and understanding of the importance of agriculture to the state. Two of the largest urban centers in Nebraska, Omaha and Lincoln, are located approximately 60 miles apart on Interstate-80. This serves as an appropriate location to promote and highlight some of Nebraska’s agriculture. The ...


State [Fair] Park: Nebraska Vernacular, Andrew Charles Peterson May 2005

State [Fair] Park: Nebraska Vernacular, Andrew Charles Peterson

Theses from the Architecture Program

Each year the Nebraska State Fair comes and goes; however, the abandoned fairgrounds remain causing a void in Lincoln’s urban fabric. This project proposes a remedy to the fairground’s wavering between programmatic solidity and impermanence by redeveloping and renaming the site. The new State [Fair] Park will function as a park for 51 weeks out of the year and a fair for one. The result is a recreational nucleus for the city of Lincoln showcasing Nebraska’s historically agricultural economy and character. State [Fair] Park is designed according to “a single, unifying ideal”—to showcase Nebraska’s farmland ...

Interpreting A Divide: Developing An Interpretive Center Along The Continental Divide, Kurt Cisar

Theses from the Architecture Program

The design project entails the integration of the arts and sciences to create an educational center for the public to learn about the Continental Divide and the surrounding ecosystem. The intention is to design a building that exhibits an expression of its adaptability to climactic conditions and plays an interactive role in how one perceives the surrounding environment. The mixing of both art and science will allow for the building to become a viewing device that will adapt to the site’s multiple elements in a manner that can induce a clear educational environment. Both disciplines will converge on a ...


Camp Cedars Discovery Center, Boy Scouts Of America, Robert A. Soukup May 2005

Camp Cedars Discovery Center, Boy Scouts Of America, Robert A. Soukup

Theses from the Architecture Program

I am proposing to design a learning/activities center for the Boy Scouts of America. In Nebraska, one of the major BSA campgrounds is Camp Cedars, located approximately three miles northeast of Cedar Bluffs. Every year scout troops from all over Nebraska meet at Camp Cedars to participate in one of six weekly sessions during the months of June and July. The facilities are used by Cub Scouts, ages 7-11 years, as well as by Boy Scouts, ages 11-17. The current facilities within the camp include: manager offices, a quartermaster’s barn, a swimming pool, a cafeteria hall, an archery ...


Digital / Physical Consumption: A Mixed-Use Prescription For An Innovative Urban Mall, David Warner May 2005

Digital / Physical Consumption: A Mixed-Use Prescription For An Innovative Urban Mall, David Warner

Theses from the Architecture Program

A key component missing from many urban cores is an established retail hub. This displacement of retail, shadowing the economic tendency towards sprawl, has robbed the downtown of its vitality. In order to reinstall the appeal that downtowns once possessed, my objective as both an optimist and realist is to suggest the reestablishment of downtown as a place for diverse interaction. In accordance, I am proposing a mixed-use retail mall for the urban domain. I intend to define and design a mixed-use project on a block in downtown Omaha. The project location, in proximity to the new convention center, will ...


Architecture Of The Wilderness: Understanding Culture And Ecology In The Sandhills Of Nebraska Through Design, Patrick J. Moore May 2005

Architecture Of The Wilderness: Understanding Culture And Ecology In The Sandhills Of Nebraska Through Design, Patrick J. Moore

Theses from the Architecture Program

How might one—in creating a built environment—educate others about the natural environment, restore commerce to a dying community, and touch the earth as lightly as possible in the process? The intent of this project is to create an interpretive center for a proposed regional tourism network in a rural Nebraska County. The design will be based on issues of sustainability, including resource conservation, socio-economic improvement, and environmental protection. Specific issues addressed include: Green Buildings, Biomimicry, Mechanical Systems, Construction Methods, Biology and Geology Research and Education, Regional Planning, and Vernacular Buildings. This project, explores how architecture can be used ...


Revitalizing Retail, Caleb Buland May 2005

Revitalizing Retail, Caleb Buland

Theses from the Architecture Program

This project formulates a new retail center in downtown Kansas City, MO. The project looks at historical records and precedents to help design and program a successful retail center. This project creates an updated and modern version of the retail and gallery malls that once occurred in downtown Kansas City. Issues that many retail projects fail to study, but are necessary in an urban setting, will be considered and developed. These issues include: the pedestrian scale, various types of parking excluding surface, the homeless population, day lighting, dealing with the problems of dead hours, the concept of mixed use and ...


Bridging The Urban Pedestrian Gap, Amy L. Cooper Schaap May 2005

Bridging The Urban Pedestrian Gap, Amy L. Cooper Schaap

Theses from the Architecture Program

The project is a proposed design for a pedestrian bridge crossing the Missouri River between Omaha, Nebraska, and Council Bluffs, Iowa. In conjunction with the bridge, an urban pathway that has strip retail and gathering spots over the river and an urban design connecting the bridge with the urban environment of Omaha are also proposed. The existing trail systems in Nebraska and Iowa have no connection linking the two states and no safe way for pedestrians to cross the Missouri River. Omaha and Council Bluffs have been trying to bring life back into their downtowns, and the bridge provides opportunities ...


Rural Intervention: “Garden Village”, Chad P. Shaffer May 2005

Rural Intervention: “Garden Village”, Chad P. Shaffer

Theses from the Architecture Program

The project proposes to develop a rural subdivision community, Garden Village, near South Bend in Cass County, Nebraska, on the south side of Interstate 80, near exit 426, between Omaha and Lincoln. It seeks to integrate new urbanism with the environment in a way that uses sensitive techniques on the existing landscape. The development will use the environment to enhance the design and create a “place” through its unique community identity, architecturally designed housing and work places, recreational activities, and strong access to surrounding communities. Features include commercial centers, apartment complexes, gold course, mobile home park, and dam construction. The ...


Fume Hood Exhaust Stack System, Mingsheng Liu May 2005

Fume Hood Exhaust Stack System, Mingsheng Liu

Architectural Engineering -- Faculty Publications

A fume hood exhaust stack system (10) and method utilize a variable speed fan (24) and an exhaust stack (28) having an adjustable cross-sectional area. Toxic exhaust from one or more fume hoods (12) is conveyed through a header (16) to the fan. The fan forces the exhaust through the exhaust stack, and the exhaust is then discharged into the atmosphere at a sufficient velocity and momentum to ensure that the exhaust reaches an environmentally sound altitude. A variable speed drive (36), programmable controller (34), flow signals (26), and static pressure and total pressure signals (20) are utilized to modulate ...


Examining The Basis For Change In Clark County Non-Conforming Zone Change Process, Was It Needed?, Maria D. Kaseko May 2005

Examining The Basis For Change In Clark County Non-Conforming Zone Change Process, Was It Needed?, Maria D. Kaseko

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

This study reviews Clark County's non-conforming zone change process from 1990 to 2002. A non-conforming zone change, sometimes known as a non-conforming zone boundary amendment is a proposed request that is not within the range of residential densities and/or non-residential intensities indicated on the applicable land use plan map, master plan, or concept plan. This research explores and examines two questions raised by the Clark County's new implementation plan, which was approved in April 2003 to amend the non-conforming zone change process. 1) Clark County assumed there was a public perception that non-conforming zone changes were being ...


Preserving Rural African American Heritage In Hawkins County, Tennessee: A History And Restoration Proposal For Saunders School, Chapel, And Cemetery., Sharon Edwina Becker May 2005

Preserving Rural African American Heritage In Hawkins County, Tennessee: A History And Restoration Proposal For Saunders School, Chapel, And Cemetery., Sharon Edwina Becker

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

As generations segment and separate by distance and relationships, the chapel, school, and cemetery in what was known as the Saunders Chapel Community in Hawkins County, Tennessee, becomes a unifying bond to its descendents. This study records Saunders School history as an established central archive and uses the history for a restoration proposal. Saunders history, like all social and cultural history, exists as coalesced fragments. In the hope of deriving proof of the past, each entity and event is brought together so they might illuminate another. The story of Saunders Chapel will continue to grow and live on through the ...


Urban Spa: Capturing The Sensual Through The Filmic, Brian K. Chevchek May 2005

Urban Spa: Capturing The Sensual Through The Filmic, Brian K. Chevchek

Masters Theses

Architects and film directors share in the mental task of structuring our being in the world and articulating the surface between ourselves and the world. This structuring and articulation occurs through a chiasmatic binding of the external world of the body and the inner world of the mind.

It is through the sensual qualities of architecture that perception is opened and awareness of ones existence in space occurs. This thesis investigates how the poetic images in film can inform and assist the production of an architecture that captures the experiences and encounters of the sensual.


The Surreal Strip Mall, Myles N. Trudell May 2005

The Surreal Strip Mall, Myles N. Trudell

Masters Theses

This thesis examines the surreal quality of sub-urban strip malls. Using the theories set forth in Robert Venturi’s Learning from Las Vegas and Rem Koolhaas’ Delirious New York, I present a proposal for the redevelopment of an underused strip mall in South Knoxville. The goal of this proposal is to use surreality as a tool to illuminate the absurdities inherent in many sub-urban development, and to create a civic/commercial center to serve the community.

The Dancing Curve, Emmanouil Vermisso May 2005

The Dancing Curve, Emmanouil Vermisso

School of Architecture - Theses

This paper explores a way digital media can help re-instate traditional forms of architecture that seem to have lost their mythical-phenomenological connotations due to paradigm shifts, while developing new (digital) techniques to approach design. As a result of my interest in Classicism in conjunction with an enthusiasm about digital design, I thought of bringing together two ways of design that ostensibly occupy opposite ends of the architectural spectrum, but in effect are closer that meets the eye.

My proposal is the controlled transformation of classical elements like the Entablature using digital software like Rhinoceros and FormZ. As to the formal ...

Citizen Based Public Health Surveillance, Monitoring And Post-Event Assessments, Thomas Lyons Carr Iii Apr 2005

Citizen Based Public Health Surveillance, Monitoring And Post-Event Assessments, Thomas Lyons Carr Iii

Thomas Lyons (Thom) Carr III Appl.Sc., CEM

When a sudden on-set emergency or disaster affects a region or the whole country, communities and neighborhoods should plan for the possibility that emergency and other civic services will be disrupted and unavailable (District of Columbia 2003a, 2003b, 2004; Doyle 2004; Siskiyou County Public Health/NorCalBT.com 2004). The event may be severe enough that the routine public health surveillance and monitoring system will be disrupted or the system will not be able to provide data quickly enough to support state and local decisionmaking. A temporary post-disaster system should be planned for and implemented. The epidemiologist supporting the local decision ...

Livelihood Strategies And Performance Of Ghana’S Health And Education Sectors: Exploring The Connections, Francis Owusu Apr 2005

Livelihood Strategies And Performance Of Ghana’S Health And Education Sectors: Exploring The Connections, Francis Owusu

Community and Regional Planning Publications

The public sector in Africa is riddled with widespread ineffectiveness. Although some countries have implemented various reform programmes with the support of international development agencies, the results so far have been disappointing. One reason for the failure is that the policies have focussed more on achieving macroeconomic stability than making the organisations effective. This article explores a fundamental problem of the policies—the need to focus on the human component of organisational performance. Using education and health organisations in Ghana as examples, the article advances a hypothesis that the livelihood strategies of public sector employees and the performance of their ...
