  • The resilient urban city: a new image of the city
    School of Architecture University of Limerick, 2015
    Co-Authors: Bourke Stephen
    Abstract:

    For most the heart of the city of Chicago is the loop district, the central business district where by all the different city transit lines meet in a loop fifteen foot above one’s head. For me it is a place much more detached from, yet completely surrounded by the city, the confluence, the point at which the three branches of the river meet. With my back against the ten to fifteen foot corrugated steel river wall, bobbing gently in my kayak, the essence of an extraordinarily vibrant city can be felt. From here, the three branches of the river meet like an upside down letter Y placed out in front of you and flattened. Behind me I can hear the great Metra on its final approach into the city’s ‘Union Station’ as it completes its journey from the far outer reaches of the greater Chicago area. On my right, the bare Aluminium Skin of the red-line, transit train is glistening in the sun as it crosses the ‘Lake Street Bridge’ over the southern branch of the river. From that bridge panning left toward the direction of the bow of my kayak is the main stem of this great river. Throughout the day a parade of endless water taxis, tour boats and recreational boats, head towards this confluence of river branches and either go south, under ‘Lake Street’ bridge to my right, or north towards my left under what Chicagoans would call ‘Viagra’ bridge, the name being a touch of humour towards its current state in a permanent upright position. Its monumental state is paying tribute toward the industrial age of Chicago where the train was of vital importance to its prosperity, the bridge being the last physical piece of evidence of a past infrastructure. All of this added to the sound of cars in rush hour traffic is a vibrancy of transport infrastructure any city would thrive upon. Although, completely forgetting the canyons of glass and steel towering left and right of the river, adding a whole other layer of fabric to a feeling of wonder and awe just bobbing in the water

  • Mechanical Characterization of Expanded Polystyrene Spheres Embed Sandwich Composites for Packaging Applications
    RIT Scholar Works, 2018
    Co-Authors: R Maheswaran, S, Arockia Reemas
    Abstract:

    This paper addresses on study of development of new packaging material comprising Expanded Polystyrene Spheres (EPS) embedded epoxy polymer based sandwich composites with Aluminium Skin. The density of the packing material is controlled by varying the volume of embedded spheres. In this study, the Flexural and Compression performance of Expanded Polystyrene Spheres (EPS) embedded polymer based sandwich composites with Aluminium Skin are investigated. The EPS volume percent in the core is 25% with epoxy matrix which makes the the density less than 1 g/cm3 for the composite. The fabricated Sandwich Composite are very light weight, the density is less than 1 g/cm3 so it can able to float in water. Here for the same volume fraction of 25%. EPS are arranged in square pattern and hexagonal pattern in the sandwich composites. The compression strength and flexural strength for the two type of pattern arrangements were studied in experimental method

  • Effect of EPS volume fraction in buoyancy characteristics of expanded polystyrene/epoxy sandwich composites
    International Journal of Materials Engineering Innovation, 2017
    Co-Authors: S, Arockia Reemas, R Maheswaran
    Abstract:

    In this study, the buoyancy characteristics of an expanded polystyrene spheres (EPS) embedded epoxy polymer based sandwich composites with Aluminium Skin are investigated. Composite which float at the pycnocline layers formulated by three fluids namely refined Helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil, brine solution and water are determined. Four composite samples EPS-22, EPS-29, EPS-36 and EPS-43 vol.% of EPS in the epoxy resin matrix core are fabricated by hand lay-up process. It is observed that the density of the composite is decreasing with increasing EPS volume fractions and the buoyant force acting on the samples at pycnocline layers are increased due to the density gradient. Results show that the sandwich composites with greater than EPS-36 and EPS-43 vol.% float in sunflower oil and composites having EPS-29 vol.% floats at the sunflower oil/fresh water pycnocline layer. Further, it is observed that composite with EPS-22 vol.% floats at the fresh/brine water pycnocline layer.
