Computer Aided Environmental Solutions: Evaluation of Optimum Building Orientation in Lahore, Pakist
One of the primary features of solar passive design is the orientation of a building on a particular latitude. The client of Information Technology demands testing, validity, practicality and sustainability of a building project before execution. The computer based simulations are the only practical way to predict the complex energy performance and analysis for a large number of passive design solutions. This paper investigates the optimum residential building orientation having various zones, l
Interdisciplinary Science Biosphere Student Document
The World’s biodiversity is in serious decline. We do not know the total number of species that were on this planet, say, at the beginning of the Second millennium, but by the beginning of the Third, we have identified 1.4 million species and we think there are at least 20 million, based upon individual studies of trees in rain forest for example and estimates of ecosystem diversity. How can we measure the usefulness of species to us and how many of them do we need to maintain the Biosphe
The website for this course (18.098 Street-Fighting Mathematics, January (IAP) 2008) has been made available by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Mathematics as part of the MIT OpenCourseWare project. "This course teaches the art of guessing results and solving problems without doing a proof or an exact calculation. Techniques include extreme-cases reasoning, dimensional analysis, successive approximation, discretization, generalization, and pictorial analysis. Applic
SP.718 Special Topics at Edgerton Center: D-Lab Health: Medical Technologies for the Developing Worl
D-Lab Health provides multi-disciplinary approach to global health technology design via guest lectures and a major project based on fieldwork. We will explore the current state of global health challenges and learn how design medical technologies that address those problems. Students may travel to Nicaragua during spring break and work with health professionals, using medical technology design kits to gain field experience for their device challenge. As a final class deliverable, you will creat
Interview with Dr Barbara Harrell-Bond
Professor Roger Zetter, Director of the Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford interviews Dr Barbara Harrell-Bond, the founder and former Director of the Centre. In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) at Oxford (which hosts FMO), we are beginning this series of podcasts with a collection of conversations with prominent academics, in which they discuss the evolution the field of refugee and forced migration studies. The first of the
Diagraphics: an expos? of visual expression
This expos? introduces preparations for a publication based on what I have found to be a ?missing link? in the library of educational source materials. The skills necessary to record and interpret the complexity of the architectural design process are often illusive. The sophistication of computer modeling and graphics applications only adds to the dilemma of making clear and concise decisions about how to communicate the essence of one?s design intent. The publication will define and illustrate
