Re:presenting making: the integration of new technology into ceramic designer-maker practice.
(Robert Gordon University, 1998)
See Coversheet for system requirements. The aim of the research is to integrate computer technologies and environmentally - sensitive materials and processes into the practice of the ceramic designer-maker, in order to ...
The use of dynamic and diffusive insulation for combined heat recovery and ventilation in buildings.
(Building Environmental Performance Analysis Club (BEPAC), 1997-02)
Representing problem-solving for knowledge refinement.
(AAAI (distributed by MIT Press), 1999-09)
Knowledge refinement tools seek to correct faulty knowledge based systems (KBSs) by identifying and repairing potentially faulty rules. The goal of the KrustWorks project is to provide a source of refinement components ...
The role of artists in the public realm: an investigation into artists' generative processes in context.
(The Robert Gordon University, 1999-06)
A shift in practice towards a process-orientated and collaborative art practice within the strands of art practice in the public realm raises the question, ’what is the practical contribution artists make to society?’ ...
Environmentally sensitive printmaking: a framework for safe practice.
(Robert Gordon University, 1997-08)
This research is concerned with establishing a rationale which will link safe printmaking practices with artists' individual and sustainable creative practices, by investigating the preconception that printmaking practices ...
The monitoring and control of specialist ceramic kiln atmospheres and emissions.
(Robert Gordon University, 1993-05)
The ceramic glazing techniques of vapour glazing, reduction lustre, Raku and fuming all require specialised firing conditions with the use of potentially hazardous kiln atmospheres and specialist kiln designs for their ...
Bioregions and future state visioning: a visually integrative approach to the presentation of information for environmental policy and management.
(The Robert Gordon University, 1999-11)
This thesis explores the comparatively new philosophy of bioregionalism to see what it might have to offer the environmental management process. The foundations of bioregional philosophy stretch back into the early part ...
Natural landscape scenic preference: techniques for evaluation and simulation.
(The Robert Gordon University, 1998-12)
The aesthetic beauty of a landscape is a very subjective issue: every person has their own opinions and their own idea of what beauty is. However, all people have a common evolutionary history, and, according to the ...
Dynamic insulation in multistorey buildings.
Dynamic insulation permits the movement of air and moisture through the external walls of a building to reduce heat loss and achieve high indoor air quality. The present paper details a pilot study carried out to examine ...
Microgravity measurement in space using imaging techniques.
(The Robert Gordon University, 1996-09)
The proposal is made that very small changes in gravitational field could be detected by monitoring a cell of heated fluid. Variations in gravity would be observed by their effect on the convection in the fluid cell. It ...
