    EXPERIMENT 1 VENTURI FLOW CHARACTERISTICS OBJECTIVES: To understand and provide the theory of how a venture works. To measure the flow through and differential pressure across a Venturi flow meter. To plot the pressure profiles across a Venturi at a different flow rates. To examine and discuss the relationship between flow and ∆P through a Venturi in a pipe at a various distances from the Venturi. THEORY: The Venturi flow meter is an equipment that uses the Bernoulli Effect and a manometer pressure gauge to measure the rate of flow of a liquid or fluid that is flowing through a pipe. There is also a part in the venture equipment that has a reduced cross-sectional area. When the liquid goes through this part, the speed (velocity) tend to…

    for an ideal fluid in steady motion, where it states the sum of pressure, kinetic and potential energies per unit volume is constant (Munson, et al., 2013). Venturi effect is where the pressure of the fluid decreases which causes its velocity to increase as it passes through a constricted section of a pipe. This is the basis of this report’s investigation. The aim of this investigation is to compare the flow rate obtained from the Venturi meter to the flow rate obtained from a velocity profile…

    Published in 1972 Learning from Las Vegas by Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown and Steven Izenour analyzes the architecture of the commercial strip in Las Vegas as an object of communication and persuasion. The architecture along the strip acts as sign rather than space with the intentions of creating an architectural object capable of seducing and luring the spectator at mid glance. Venturi translated the Las Vegas strip as a form of architecture that relied solely on iconicity as…

    This approach means that ARM often seems to draw connections that are not apparent: to the nature of a city, particular people, specific building types, historical episodes or events.18 As Ian McDougall explained in his own words, “Architecture appears to want or need to represent something to validate its permanence”.19 The blackened Villa Savoye at Canberra and recreation of Vanna Venturi House in Footscray are chunk-appropriations, a technique antithetical to modernism’s ideas for the forever…

    In response to Louis Kahn’s writings, words that measure fall short of fully grasping the visionary and profound qualities they possess. Kahn’s poetry allows the reader to begin to understand his theories and the major elements that he held essential in the study of architecture. Some architects may think that the goal of being an architect is to merely deliver good design, but this is shown to be just a factor through the lenses of Kahn’s writings. Louis Kahn reveals that architecture is not…

    Good design is complex and contradictory this is supported by the statement “less is a bore” and that less doesn 't mean more. By having less you lose the interesting aspects of complexity. Venturi points that the richness and complexity of modern experience needs to be expressed in our architecture. This is further supported by the statement that function doesn 't follow form and that ornaments are valuable for architecture. Ornaments in architecture have meaning, is intrinsically symbolic, and…

Fragmentation caused by mine reclamation is said to be “two-sided because both the effect that natural habitat has on the restored area, and the effect the restored area has on natural habitat.” (Craig et al. 2015) It is known “edge effects increase with increasing contrast between habitats forming the edge with…

    behavior and way of thinking. He bases this premiere on an experiment done by psychologists about humans, but done in rats. This experiment was about how rats being groomed and licked by their mother will affect their future. Psychologists believe it’s the most parallel to grooming and licking; the experiment done in rats. The effects of the experiment were the opposite of what they thought they would find. They found that parents who respond to their children immediately and whom are very…

    Media has control over our minds. Advertisers, movies, television shows, and magazines feed people’s minds with a false and perverted (“to change [something good] so that it is no longer what it was or should be” (Webster) view on body image for both men and women. Media uses tools such as Photoshop to change the model into a so-called perfect human form, which is usually unnatural and unachievable by the average person. Eating disorders, and low self-esteem seem to be a side effect of this.…

    The Gulf oil spill has been recognized as the worst oil spill in U.S. history. The initial environmental impact was obvious, as the water was flooded with oil for 87 days. The surrounding wildlife and marine life coated in oil, and the waters thick with sludge as an estimated 4.9 million barrels of oil leaked into the Gulf. Years later, is the Gulf free of oil? We no longer see the discolored waters, and the animals covered in blackness, but the Gulf is still facing lasting challenges with long…
