Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Publications

A three-dimensional (3D) multi-segment hand-specific thermoregulation model was developed as a fundamental tool for spatial and temporal skin temperature prediction. Cold-induced vasodilation in fingers was simulated by superimposing symmetrical triangular waveforms onto the basal blood flow. The model used realistic anatomical, physiological, and thermo-physical information of a standard human hand and forearm. The inhomogeneity of hand thermal and physiological properties was considered by dividing it into 17 segments: palm, dorsal, forearm, and five fingers, with each finger subdivided into fingertip, middle segment, and finger root except for the thumb, which has no middle segment. Each segment contained a bone core ...

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Publications

In 2017, more than 60,000 firefighters and oilfield-workers injuries and fatalities occurred while they were working under various thermal hazards such as flame, radiant heat, steam, etc., or due to their significant heat stress related discomfort. The majority of these burn injuries and fatalities results from an inadequate protection and comfort provided by firefighters’ and oilfield-workers’ fire protective polymeric textile materials used in their workwear. Hence, both the thermal protective and thermo-physiological comfort performance of fabrics used in workwear significantly contribute to limit firefighters’ and oilfield-workers’ skin burns and heat stress. Considering this, previous studies have focused on characterizing ...


Fine Roman Dining At Affordable Pompeian Prices: A New Evaluation Of The Non-Domestic Gardens Of Pompeii, Claire Campbell 2021 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville

Fine Roman Dining At Affordable Pompeian Prices: A New Evaluation Of The Non-Domestic Gardens Of Pompeii, Claire Campbell

World Languages, Literatures and Cultures Undergraduate Honors Theses

Previous scholarship has designated Roman gardens into otium or negotium designations; however, this research on Roman gardens suggests that these concepts often exist in the spaces simultaneously. To address this issue, I compiled catalogs of garden spaces identified at Regio I and Regio VI of Pompeii. This methodology cuts across traditional public and private or productive and aesthetic designations, which will allow me to draw connections between the gardens found in different types of settings. This new catalog methodology of Roman gardens presented in this thesis allows for an integrative analysis of garden spaces, which reveals that these commercial gardens ...
