Noise Propagation Through Open Windows Of Finite Depth Into An Enclosure, 2010 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Noise Propagation Through Open Windows Of Finite Depth Into An Enclosure, Caleb Sieck, Siu-Kit Lau
Faculty Publications in Architectural Engineering
Predicting the insertion loss of an opening backed with an enclosed space is important for building noise control. Recent research in sound transmission through apertures of finite depth in infinite rigid baffles has included the effects of propagating and evanescent modes within the aperture in order to extend models to higher frequencies. The present study extends the model to the case of the aperture backed by a cavity as opposed to sound radiating into half-space. The role of coupling between the aperture modes, radiation modes, and cavity modes in the transmission was investigated. The results were compared to those of ...
Feasibility Study Of Solar Driven Underground Cooling System, 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln
Feasibility Study Of Solar Driven Underground Cooling System, Michel E. Shafik
Dissertations and Student Research: Architectural Engineering
In the United States the peak electrical use occurs during the summer. In addition, the building sector consumes a major portion of the annual electrical energy consumption. One of the main energy consuming components in the building sector is the Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) systems. This research studies the feasibility of implementing a solar driven underground cooling system that could contribute to reducing building cooling loads. The developed system consists of an Earth-to-Air Heat Exchanger (EAHE) coupled with a solar chimney that provides a natural cool draft to the test facility building at the Solar Energy Research Test Facility ...
Re-Designing The 'Great Australian Dream': Creating A More Sustainable Housing Future, 2010 Edith Cowan University
Re-Designing The 'Great Australian Dream': Creating A More Sustainable Housing Future, Eko Pam
Theses : Honours
Sustainable design is a buzzword in the field of architecture, yet very few houses built in Western Australia last year had an environmentally friendly focus. Through much debate and research, designers now have a thorough understanding of the environmental impact ofhousing (Kibert, 2005; Roaf, 2001; Yeang, 1995). The result is that architects worldwide are now offering a more sustainable housing model. These houses are expensive and look very different to the popular project homes. Despite this environmental awareness, the homes Western Australians build appear to be growing larger, with little regard for their future sustainability. There is reluctance among Australians ...
Historical Restoration Of The Usu Passive Recreation Garden, 2010 Utah State University
Historical Restoration Of The Usu Passive Recreation Garden, Jeremy Nelson
Browse All Undergraduate research
Laval Morris was the founder of the Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning department at USU. He is an important figure in the history of our university, state, and intermountain region. One of the last remaining landscapes that he designed for the university is USU's Passive Recreation Garden. Over time the garden has become degraded, overrun by invasive plants and by last year, had become almost completely destroyed. It is important to preserve and restore this garden because of its importance to Laval and to LAEP's history.

Summary Report For The 2010 Season, 2010 Concordia University, St. Paul
Summary Report For The 2010 Season, Mark Schuler
In 2010, excavation work concentrated on the area east of the domus of the North-East Church between Cardo 3 North and Cardo 4 North. This area may be the remains of a palatial home of a prominent citizen of the city. If our hypothesis holds true, the house would be some 375 m2 plus a garden to the north.1 In addition to the architecture revealed in 2010, small finds raise interesting questions about the use of the area and about the religious life of the community in the Byzantine period. This report will detail work done in three areas ...
Stained Glass Windows Of Trinity Cathedral, Cleveland, Ohio, Produced By Wilbur H. Burnham Studios, 2010 Cleveland State University
Stained Glass Windows Of Trinity Cathedral, Cleveland, Ohio, Produced By Wilbur H. Burnham Studios, Michael J. Tevesz
Trinity Episcopal Cathedral has over forty large stained glass windows that range in age from the 15 to the 20th Century. The medieval windows were produced in England and Germany, while the more contemporary windows were produced by such prominent studios as those directed by Willet, Connick, Tiffany, Heaton, Young, and Burnham. The more contemporary windows are of considerable artistic and historical interest, but there is very little information available about them. This monograph specifically focuses on the windows of Trinity Cathedral produced by the Wilbur H. Burnham Studios. The Burnham Studios windows are the most accessible windows within the ...

From Ark To Art : The 20-Year Journey Of The Civic, Cleveland Heights, Ohio, From Jewish Temple To Multi-Purpose Community Facility, 2010 Cleveland State University
From Ark To Art : The 20-Year Journey Of The Civic, Cleveland Heights, Ohio, From Jewish Temple To Multi-Purpose Community Facility, John J. Boyle Iii
The Civic is a former Jewish temple located in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, an inner-ring suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. The building was close to being abandoned and possibly torn down after its former congregation built a new facility farther out in the suburbs. This study describes how a former temple came to serve the community in a new and different way in the secular world. This study will chronicle the Civic as a historical building; describe the efforts to remake it into a multi-purpose building that is a community asset; and serve as a model to other communities interested in adapting ...
El Paso, Texas, And Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, 1880-1930: A Material Culture Study Of Borderlands Interdependency, 2010 University of Texas at El Paso
El Paso, Texas, And Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, 1880-1930: A Material Culture Study Of Borderlands Interdependency, Gladys Arlene Hodges
Open Access Theses & Dissertations
Material culture theory informs this study of urban history and borderlands interdependency at El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, from 1880-1930. Features incised into and structures built onto the natural environment by the first arriving colonists after the mid-seventeenth century endured for more than two centuries. Over that period, the humanly-created material environment, a social product, fed back into the development of social forms--institutions, rituals, practices, modes of interaction, activities, and beliefs. A significant number of these social forms endured into the late nineteenth century and beyond, even after mechanization and industrialization arrived in the region known ...

Barrio Capital De Analco: A Living Capitol Neighborhood For Santa Fe, New Mexico, The 2009 Urban Design Studio, Andrew C. Von Maur, Paula Dronen, Daniel Acevedo
Diverse cultures and the high desert have always defined the unique American story of Santa Fe. For centuries Santa Feans have shaped their city’s buildings and spaces for economic opportunity while conserving the precious natural resources of northern New Mexico. This history of continuous change and preservation has yielded the distinctive identity of Santa Fe. Its spirit and values are manifested in its people and culture, its art and architecture, and its health-giving natural beauty. Within this context, Santa Fe seeks to cultivate a Living Tradition, rooted in its past and anticipating the future. Restored and improved for the ...

The Nutalism, 2010 Syracuse University
The Nutalism, Brendan Gabriel Rose
Architecture Senior Theses
"It is the continued contention of this thesis that through material investigations that attempt to dissolve the perceived boundary between the acts of art, design, and construction, an architecture student can offer a significantly robust demonstration of their competency as an architect in training. Furthermore, such an investigation, carried out through full-scale design implementations on urban sites, offers much greater potential for demonstrating competency in the skills of collaboration, tectonics, site engagement, and economics than a traditional thesis consisting of testing through drawings, models, and words."

The Highway And The American City, Ted Shelton
Ted Shelton, FAIA
This book contains papers presented at The Sustainable City 2010 conference, which was the sixth edition of the International Conference on Urban Regeneration and Sustainability. That event followed the very successful meetings held previously in Rio (2000), Segovia (2002), Siena (2004), Tallinn (2006) and Skiathos (2008) and proved one more time the necessity of this scientific forum to discuss the challenging situations that the urban areas are confronting nowadays.Innovative tools are required for understanding the high complexity of contemporary cities. It is urgent to promote a more scientific approach to urban studies, inspired by Prigogine’s dissipative structures, and ...

Writing Restoration In Rome: Inscriptions, Statues, And The Late Antique Preservation Of Buildings, 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Writing Restoration In Rome: Inscriptions, Statues, And The Late Antique Preservation Of Buildings, Gregor Kalas
Gregor A. Kalas
Cities, Texts and Social Networks examines the experiences of urban life from late antiquity through the close of the fifteenth century, in regions ranging from late Imperial Rome to Muslim Syria, Iraq and al-Andalus, England, the territories of medieval Francia, Flanders, the Low Countries, Italy and Germany. Together, the volume's contributors move beyond attempts to define 'the city' in purely legal, economic or religious terms. Instead, they focus on modes of organisation, representation and identity formation that shaped the ways urban spaces were called into being, used and perceived. Their interdisciplinary analyses place narrative and archival sources in communication ...
Visualizing Statues In The Late Antique Roman Forum—, 2009 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Visualizing Statues In The Late Antique Roman Forum—, Gregor Kalas, Diane Favro, Christopher Johanson
Gregor A. Kalas
During the fourth and fifth centuries CE, statues populating the open areas of the Roman Forum preserved memories of the individuals represented in portraits. This visualization project contextualizes the now-dispersed statues and their inscribed bases in the public space of the late antique Forum. By following consecutively through the "Statues and Memory," "Ritual Experience," and "Spatial Context" links above, one can navigate through the spaces in which the statues once appeared. The statues are explained through their inscribed statue bases in the "Inscription Database" section and tied to display locations under the "Mapping Statues" heading.
Planning Urban Sidewalks: Infrastructure, Daily Life, And Destinations, 2009 University of New Orleans
Planning Urban Sidewalks: Infrastructure, Daily Life, And Destinations, Renia Ehrenfeucht, Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris
Sidewalks have become important to diverse planning concerns that range from walking for health and transportation to economic development, recreation and environment improvement. Given their multiple roles in rapidly changing cities, this paper asks ’how should we plan sidewalks?’ We contend that planners can create better cities for more people by reconsidering three facets of sidewalk planning: sidewalks as infrastructure, sidewalks as spaces of everyday life, and sidewalks as leisure destinations. The objective is to build quality infrastructure and more adaptable spaces throughout the city
