2006/May/01 Technote 19: Transit Station Fires Part 1 - Problem Of Separation Of Exhausts And Intakes
2006/Apr/01 412kB Technote 18: Pedestrian Wind Control Features In Building Design Why was that tower shaped or positioned that way... why were the corners curved or stepped and not square... why were terraces built on only one side of the tower?
2006/Mar/01 246kB Technote 17: A Dilution Criterion For Laboratory Fume Hood Exhaust Stacks Exhaust from laboratory fume hoods has been known to cause odors and adverse health effects if the exhaust is re-entrained into a building with insufficient dilution.
2006/Feb/01 274kB Technote 16: Air Intake Placement For Laboratories - A General Overview With contaminant sources occurring at both roof and ground level, the placement of outside air intakes to avoid contamination can be challenging.
2006/Jan/01 320kB Technote 15: Footbridges: Pedestrian Induced Vibrations Walking, running, and jumping on footbridges produce dynamic forces which can activate appreciable vibrations. These vibrations can cause discomfort to pedestrians and deterioration of the footbridge’s structural integrity.
2005/Dec/02 386kB Technote 14: Vibration Considerations In Laboratories Laboratories house a variety of highly vibrationsensitive equipment used for research and production in fields such as metrology, biotechnology, medicine and micro/optoelectronics.
2005/Dec/01 386kB Technote 14 (see page 3): Acoustical Considerations In Laboratory Spaces In teaching laboratories, all occupants must be able to hear properly in order to assimilate the information being presented. For non-academic facilities, communications are equally important.
2005/Nov/01 313kB Technote 13: Atrium Smoke Management System Design Smoke management systems are often an important aspect of fire protection, with their primary goal being to ensure that the impact of smoke and heat on occupants is not life threatening.
2005/Oct/01 974kB Technote 12: Turf Microclimate Issues There has put greater pressure on turf consultants, architects and designers to make allowances in the design of the building for growing grass in more difficult situations.
2005/Sep/01 1.46MB Technote 11: Airflow Analysis of Laboratories and Vivaria Computer simulations of the airflow patterns in the room were performed using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) techniques.
