Reducing the visual impact of overhead contact systems by John S Kulpa( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report defines Overhead Contact Systems (OCSs) and describes the function of OCSs for trolleybus and light rail systems. The report describes nonintrusive and intrusive designs, considering the overall visual impact of those designs on intersections or street segments and the complete effect that hardware has in any given location. It discusses the influence system design has on visual impact including the need for emergency wire and the use of one-way operation to minimize visual impact in trolleybus systems. Further, it investigates how the turning capability in trolleybus and light rail OCS design may have an effect on visual impact. The report considers the effect of curve design and the design of the electrical distribution systems on the appearance of light rail. An approach to evaluating the visual impact of trolleybus intersections is presented. This report concludes that the visual impact of OCSs can only be reduced if such reduction is made a specific goal throughout the design process

SOM structural engineering by Owings & Merrill Skidmore( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With its 80 years of experience in bringing together architecture and engineering Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) remains groundbreaking to this day, particularly in construction of gigantic skyscrapers, the so-called "supertalls". The fourth volume of the DETAIL engineering series presents the approaches, the roots and the theoretical background of the SOM Structural Group. One central question is how far architecture can go - in terms of height. Typical structural concepts and individual details from numerous projects across the world serve to illustrate processes of solution finding. The results illustrate the firm's core values: simplicity, clarity, hierarchy, efficiency, economy and advancement. A number of iconic SOM buildings such as the John Hancock Center and the Sears Tower help to position the example projects - ranging from James Turrell's Skyspace to Burj Khalifa - within the context of SOM's complete work. The innovative structural solutions presented here indicate how SOM enables the creation of "next generation" buildings".-Back cover
