SynergiCity : reinventing the postindustrial city by Paul Hardin Kapp( )

12 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in English and held by 1,471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"SynergiCity: Reinventing the Postindustrial City proposes a new and invigorating vision of urbanism, architectural design, and urban revitalization in twenty-first-century America. Culling transformative ideas from the realms of historic preservation, sustainability, ecological urbanism, and the innovation economy, Paul Hardin Kapp and Paul J. Armstrong present a holistic vision for restoring industrial cities suffering from population decline back into stimulating and productive places to live and work. With a particular emphasis on the Rust Belt of the American Midwest, SynergiCity argues that cities such as Detroit, St. Louis, and Peoria must redefine themselves to be globally competitive. This revitalization is possible through environmentally and economically sustainable restoration of industrial areas and warehouse districts for commercial, research, light industrial, and residential uses. The volume's expert researchers, urban planners, and architects draw on the redevelopment successes of other major cities--such as the American Tobacco District in Durham, North Carolina, and the Milwaukee River Greenway--to set guidelines and goals for reinventing and revitalizing the postindustrial landscape. Contributors are Paul J. Armstrong, Donald K. Carter, Lynne M. Dearborn, Norman W. Garrick, Mark Gillem, Robert Greenstreet, Craig Harlan Hullinger, Paul Hardin Kapp, Ray Lees, Emil Malizia, John O. Norquist, Christine Scott Thomson, and James Wasley"--Provided by publisher

High Velocity Penetration into Fibre-Reinforced Concrete Materials - Protection of Buildings( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Fibre reinforced concrete suitable for spraying onto existing structures is being examined to assess its resistance to penetration by 7.62mm diameter armour piercing projectiles. A major test programme is being carried out to examine the influence of aggregate type and fibre type. For each aggregate/fibre combination a statistical method is being used to plan test series which will lead to optimization of the concrete in terms of water/cement ratio, fibre content and aggregate/cement ratio. The minimum thickness of optimized concretes to resist penetration by the projectile and minimise spall and scabbing, will be determined. The mechanics of the impact and penetration event are being studied and a possible method of deflecting the projectile within the concrete is suggested
