Inelastic Scattering of Neutrons or Xrays by Phonons

The phonons can be quantified as the vibrations of ions in their respective positions of equilibrium. The experiment manages in measuring the static and dynamic factors of both the core electrons and the electrons located in the outer periphery. These x-ray diffraction experiments provide information regarding the behaviour of quantum liquids. The speed of sound in water which is a function of its temperature can be ascertained using this experiment. Further density variations of fluids with temperature changes and the corresponding arrangements of ions structurally also form part of the inelastic scattering process. (Loong Chun, 2006)Coherent x-ray scattering provides output about the dynamic structure factor. The method of measuring phonon involves relating the momentum to the inter-atomic distance. This transferred energy due to the highly excited ions provides a measure of the energy of phonons. The phonon energy is measured in terms of momentum transferred. Further, the Born-Von Karman analysis provides a relationship between force constants and the dispersions. (Loong Chun, 2006) Dispersion curves thus plotted using this relation provide information regarding the phonon density. This is critical in measuring thermodynamic specifics like vibration entropy and specific heat of materials. ( Loong Chun, 2006)The INS instrument is capable of performing very precise measurements and calculating S (Q, E) to its absolute units. It is very critical to calculating the total energy interaction that occurs when scattering takes place. An energy filter placed at a certain collimated solid angle is used to allow these low energy scattered neutrons to pass through it. (Veenendaal M van et al, 2010)This utilizes two methods to assess the process. One involves a direct geometry which utilizes a combination of fixed incident energy and variable scattered energies. The other uses inverse geometry combining variable incident energy and fixed scattered energy.

1  PurposeThe purpose of this document is to mark the completion of the Mars Extended Range Scout (MERS) Project by identifying the location of all assets, the disposition of materials, reconciling the budget and identifying key analysis that have to be completed.1.1  Background The quest to observe and document the red planet has been an ongoing mission for the better part of the past five decades. Beginning with the myth of lost civilizations on its surface that fed popular culture and science fiction, Mars has been focus of public interest. This interest has persisted as researchers made discoveries such as indications of water having once existed in a liquid state on the planet at some point in its history. The existence of liquid water on the Martian surface is among one of the many aspects of Mars that makes it a treasure trove of scientific insight. A planet which once was able to sustain liquid water may have also been able to sustain life in some form. Understanding what has led to the change that Mars has undertaken from its days of liquid water to its current state of frigid barrenness has the potential to answer questions about the formative years of our solar system as well as the formative years of life on Earth. While several potentially habitable Earth analogs have been identified and numerous are hypothesized to exist, the fact that Mars is in Earth’s own solar system has made it the most accessible specimen that we believe may have had earth like environment. This makes geological samples and high-quality data recovered from the planet very valuable to for the progress of scientific efforts. Martian exploration is also a necessary steppingstone in human space travel, similarly to the way in which the in which the lunar landing was a milestone for human exploratory capability in the late 1960’s.Mars is a probable destination for a manned mission in the future and fully understanding the planets resources and hazards is critical to the success of such an endeavor. Today’s efforts to explore Mars’ environment, terrain, geology and history are going to shape exploratory missions of the future, presumably to even more distant parts of our galaxy.These are all the reasons for which billions of dollars have been spent in the effort to reach Mars and retrieve meaningful data on its environment and conditions. Devices including satellites, landers and rovers have been deployed in the past to image, collect atmospheric and topographical data, and samples. The Spirit and Curiosity rovers, delivered in 2004, being the most recent of these deployments were sent to collect high resolution images from the surface of the planet and conduct field studies on surface samples utilizing onboard geological laboratories. The next generation of rover is planned to land on Mars in February of 2021. NASA’s Mars 2020 mission rover is the first to be equipped with a drill to probe beneath the surface of Mars in search of signs of life supporting conditions. It is also the first rover to be accompanied by an aerial scout. This scout is a solar powered, coaxial helicopter and is slated to be the first aircraft to fly on another planet. The mobility of land rovers, like the 2020 rover, is fundamental to exploratory efforts. Although they are designed with considerable regard to this need, there are still complications created by the highly varied and ultimately unknown geography of the Martian surface. Land surveyance vehicles are subjected to movement and directional constraints due to topography, thereby necessitating a means to assess viable routes prior to rover dispatch to optimize time spent moving between sites of interest. Unmanned rotocopters such as the aforementioned helicopter, have been devised for scouting operations to allow for aerial assessment of potential routs for the rover. Aerial vehicles provide similar resolution images to those collected by rovers but can more easily access remote areas and can traverse distances much more quickly than a land rover. The intention of including this helicopter to the Mars 2020 mission is to prove that flight in a Martian atmosphere is possible and a viable option for future missions all while the aircraft fills a valuable scouting role in the 2020 mission. The 2020 Scout’s design, while revolutionary for the groundbreaking accomplishment it is poised to achieve, is not without its own limitations. Achieving flight on Mars presents complications due to the planet’s carbon dioxide atmosphere providing reduced atmospheric density and viscosity relative to that on Earth. Reduced atmospheric conditions require significantly greater power to produce sufficient thrust for the generation of lift than comparable terrestrial rotorcrafts. Low density and viscosity, CO2 rich atmosphere contributes to ultra-low Reynolds numbers, compared to Reynolds numbers experienced by conventional aircrafts flying in standard Earth altitudes. Early attempts to combat atmospheric complications resulted in fixed wing drone prototypes but were ultimately discarded in favor of the more maneuverable, transportable co-axial helicopter design NASA’s Jet propulsion Laboratory produced. This increased power requirement results in a diminished battery life of mere minutes per reconnaissance mission. While this is sufficient for the current scope of the aircraft’s mission, in order to be effective, future surveying aircraft will need to be efficient utilizing power to produce lift in order to extend their range. Increasing the range of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV’s) on Mars while maintaining maneuverability and takeoff/landing/hover capabilities of rotorcraft has the potential to advance extent and capabilities of exploratory missions beyond what is currently possible with landbound rovers, accelerating timelines and saving money simultaneously.2  Project Completion Work2.1  Work Completed Prototype 1 An airfoil prototype was created with the intention of practically testing the theoretical aerodynamic capabilities of the RAF-6. The prototype was designed to be a scaled down version of the airfoil. The size was geometrically scaled such that the low Reynolds number of the Martian atmosphere at our intended cruise speed within a wind tunnel. The prototype was 3D printed and set at the designed angle of attack. To measure the pressure differential about the top and bottom of the airfoil, pressure taps were designed into the print.  Figure 1 : CAD Model of Printed Wind Tunnel Testing AirfoilPrototype 2A prototype was also made to test the thrust achievable from our rotor and motor assembly. This prototype setup included a motor controller and potentiometer that when connected to the motor allowed for variable speed control. The assembly was affixed to a scale reading the thrust as negative weight on the system and an optical tachometer was used in tandem to read rotor RPM values. This setup allows for a relationship between signal sent to the motor, rotations per minute and thrust output to be established.Figure 2 : Rotor Thrust Test Prototype Prototype 3In order to achieve the rotation of thrust necessary to produce the desired flight profile, a mechanism for rotating the motor and rotor assembly had to be devised. The initial attempt at this, was a housing for the motor that would sit within the wing structure on either side of the aircraft, both of which would connect to a single high-torque servo at the center of the fuselage by way of a shaft with mating ends. One of these can be seen in Figure 5. Figure 3 : Motor Housing Original PrototypeEmbedding two servos into the wings themselves rather than the fuselage, each with slightly higher torque requirement than the original design allows, allows the rotor to rotate about the continuous wing construction without causing clearance issues. Doing so also minimally impact the weight of the design because the larger quantity of ABS material and fasteners that are made unnecessary when mounting within the wing surface displace some of the added weight of the additional servo. Using a second servo also allows individual thrust vector rotation which is advantageous for control of z axis rotation when hovering. The next iteration of the mounting assembly which implements the lessons learned from the original design can be seen in Figure 6.Figure 4 : Rotor-Motor in Wing Mounting AssemblyPrototype 4The final prototype produced was a complete wing assembly. This included foam airfoils, rotor connections and the folding wing component. Several airfoils, each one quarter of the total wingspan of the designed product were produced. This was done because in subsequent testing it is expected that some of these will be lost to failure. Then support structures were added to these airfoils and electrical components were embedded into the foam. this prototype can be seen in Figure 7.Figure 5 : Wing Prototype AssemblyFinancial Closure The group received a grant worth $500 from the MEM department through the Boeing Grant. The team has spent $340 through Drexel orders, leaving $160 in unused funds. A team member also requires reimbursement for the purchase of a $40 sheet of plexiglass for the department’s wind tunnel. Asset TransferAssets purchased include prototypes, raw materials that has not been used, including several sheets of foam board insulation, some wood struts and several electrical components. These are all currently being stored at a member’s home and are intended to be delivered to the Spacelab on the 4th floor of the main building before the end of the term.Information ManagementAll assets that have been used over the course of senior design have been compiled in a shared drive, accessible by any individual through the following link: master file contains deliverables required by both Drexel engineering, and those required to meet individual requests of the faculty advisor. Further, excel spreadsheets and word documents that have been used internally during analysis have been annotated to better facilitate information transfer to an audience less familiar to the project.

This simulation will be used to establish the aerodynamic properties of the assembled model in each stage of flight. The environment of the simulation will emulate the properties of the Martian atmosphere as reported by NASA, most importantly, the air density, air viscosity and subsequently the Reynolds number of the flow must be accurate to understand how the designed geometry functions aerodynamically. The first stage of flight to be tested is an airplane configuration where the rotors are oriented forward, the wings are fully extended, and the simulated airflow flows from the nose tip to the tail. The second configuration that must be tested is vertical takeoff and landing. In this configuration the wings are in their retracted position, the rotors are rotated upward, and the airflow orientation is from the rotor tips downward. The final configuration for testing is a dynamic one which simulates the transition from a vertical takeoff and landing configuration to an airplane configuration. To do this, the rotors with move from a vertical to forward orientation in sync with the expansion of the wings and a coordinated shift in the airflow from top-down to nose-tail. This combination of these events give insight into a crucial portion of the flight. This analysis will complete the project to the satisfaction of the team.

 CHAPTER 1CRIMINAL JUSTICE TODAYLearning ObjectivesAfter reading this chapter, students should:1. Describe the two most common models that show how society determines which acts are criminal.2. Define crime.3. Outline the three levels of law enforcement.4. List the essential elements of the corrections system.5. Explain the difference between the formal and informal criminal justice processes.6. Define ethics and describe the role that they play in discretionary decision making.7. Contrast the crime control and due process models.8. List the major issues in criminal justice today.Lesson Plan Correlated to PowerPointsI. What is Crime? Learning Objective 1: Describe the two most common models that show how society determines which acts are criminal.Learning Objective 2: Define crime.A. Determining Criminal Behavior.  1. Consensus Model a. Assumes that as people gather together to form a society, its members naturally come to a basic agreement regarding shared norms and valuesb. Assumes, to a certain extent, that a diverse group of people can have similar morals2. Conflict Model c. Assumes that different segments of society, separated by social class, income, age, and race, inevitably have different value systems and shared norms, and are engaged in a constant struggle with one another for control of societyd. What is deemed criminal activity is determined by whichever group happens to be holding power at any given timeB. An Integrated Definition of Crime 1. Considering both the consensus and conflict model constructs a definition of crime in that it is any action or activity that includes the following:a. Is punishable under criminal law, as determined by the majority of society, or in some cases, a powerful minorityb. Is considered an offense against society as a whole and is prosecuted by public officialsc. Is punishable by statutorily defined sanctions that bring about a loss of freedom2. Differences Between Crime and Deviance d. Deviance is behavior that is considered to go against the norms established by societye. Deviance is a subjective conceptf. Deviant acts become crimes only when a majority is willing to accept that those acts should be punishedg. Not all crimes are considered particularly devianth. Criminal law reflects acts that a society agrees are so unacceptable that steps must be taken to prevent them from occurringII. The Purpose of the Criminal Justice System i. Interlocking network of law enforcement, courts and correctional institutionsA. Maintaining Justice 1. Main goal is to provide justice to all members of society 2. All individuals are equal before the law а fairnessB. Protecting Society1. Four goals of the modern criminal justice systema. To protect society from potential future crimes of the most dangerous or “risky” offenders. b. To determine when an offense has been committed and provide the appropriate punishment for that offense.c. To rehabilitate those offenders who have been punished so that it is safe to return them to the community. d. To support crime victims and, to the extent possible, return them to their pre-crime status. Media Tool “Is there racial bias in the criminal justice system?” A short clip about racial bias in the criminal justice system. Discussion: Discuss what fairness means and how race and discrimination undermine fairness. Why are some people saying that the criminal justice system serves to protect the powerful rather than everyone in society? III. The Structure of the Criminal Justice SystemLearning Objective 3: Outline the three levels of law enforcement.Learning Objective 4: List the essential elements of the corrections system.Learning Objective 5: Explain the difference between the formal and informal criminal justice processes.A. The Importance of Federalism a. Federalism implies that government powers are shared by the national (federal) government and the statesb. Division of powers allows states to create their own police power, enacting whatever laws are necessary1. Law Enforcement a. Local Law Enforcement1. Duties are split between counties and municipalities2. Chief law enforcement officer of the county is the sheriff i. Elected post ii. 2 or 4-year term3. Bulk of local police officers are employed by municipalities i. Investigate crimes ii. Attempt to deter crime iii. Apprehend criminals iv. Participate in trial proceedings v. Charged with “keeping the peace”b. State Law Enforcement1. Hawaii is the only state without a state law enforcement agency2. Two general types of state law enforcement agencies i. State police ii. Highway patrols3. Other state law enforcers include fire marshals and fish, game, and watercraft wardensc. Federal Law Enforcement1. Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI)2. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)3. U.S. Secret Service4. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF)2. The Courtsa. Dual court system with two independent judicial systems1. Federal level2. State levelb. 52 different court systems1. One for each of the 50 states i. Trial courts at local and state levels ii. Intermediate courts of appeals iii. State supreme courts2. One federal court system i. District courts ii. Circuit courts of appeals iii. The United States Supreme Court3. One court for the District of Columbia systemc. Criminal court work groups are charged with responsibility of determining innocence or guilt of criminal suspects3. Corrections a. Offenders may be placed on probation, incarcerated, or transferred to community-based corrections facilities once they have been delegated to the corrections system1. Probation is the most common correctional treatment allowing the offender to return to the community under supervision2. Incarceration may include jails or prisons i. Jails house offenders convicted of minor crimes with relatively short sentences ii. Prisons house offenders convicted of more serious crimes with longer sentences3. Community-based corrections include halfway houses, residential centers, and work-release centers4. The most frequent type of release from jail or prison is paroleB. The Criminal Justice Process 1. Debate about whether or not system functions as a “continuum,” smoothly processing cases 2. The criminal justice process functions as a continuing balance between its formal and informal naturea. The formal criminal justice process “involves a series of routinized operations whose success is gauged by their tendency to pass the case along to a successful conclusion” b. In the informal criminal justice process, each step is the result of decisions that must be made by those who work in the systemc. Herbert Packer’s Criminal Justice Process1. Formal Criminal Justice System IV. Discretion and Ethics  Learning Objective 6: Define ethics and describe the role that they play in discretionary decision making. 1. Using authority to choose between and among alternative courses of action 2. Informal criminal justice process relies on discretion to alleviate pressures A. Informal Decision Making1. Law enforcement discretion2. Pitfalls of discretionB. Ethics and Justice 1. Ethics and the Lawb. The line between ethics and justice is often difficult to discern, as ethical standards are usually not written into criminal statutes. 2. Ethics and Critical Thinkingc. The principle of critical thinking involves developing analytical skills and reasoning to address many ethical challenges inherent in the criminal justice system. V. Criminal Justice Today  Learning Objective 7: Contrast the crime control and due process models.Learning Objective 8: List the major issues in criminal justice today. 1. Crime Control Model a. The most important function of the criminal justice system is to punish and repress criminal conductb. The criminal justice system should function quickly and efficiently, as an assembly-line 2. Due Process Model a. Focus on protecting the rights of the accused through legal constraints on police, courts, and correctionsb. Strives to make it more difficult to prove guiltc. Fairness, not efficiency, is the goal of the due process modelA. Crime and Law Enforcement: The Bottom Line1. Smarter Policinga. Proactive policing that promotes more rigorous enforcement of minor offenses b. Hot-spot policing that focuses on high-crime rate areas rather than spreading resources evenly throughout a metropolitan area 2. Identifying Criminals a. DNA profiling allows law enforcement agents to identify a suspect b. Increased use of biometrics 3. Continuing Challenges for Law Enforcement.a. The Scourge of Street Gangs i. There are an estimated 33,000 gangs in the United States with approximately 1.4 million members ii. Gangs are responsible for an average of 48 percent ofviolent crimes in most cities, and for up to 90 percent in the worst-hit areas. b. Gun Sales and Gun Control i. 30,000 people killed by gunfire in the United States eachyear ii. In 2008 the United States Supreme Court ruled the U.S.Constitution protects an “individual’s right to bear arms”c. The Illegal Drug Problem i. When people speak of the “drug problem,” or the “war ondrugs,” or “drug abuse,” they are referring specifically to illegal psychoactive drugs, which alter the consciousness or perception of the user. ii. Drug abuse often leads to further criminal behavior inadolescents, as we will see when we look at the juvenile justice system iii. Growing market for illegal drugs causes significant damageboth in the United States and in countries such as Mexico that supply America with it. d. Drug Use in the United States i. National Survey on Drug Use and Health ii. About 9.2% or 23.9 million Americans use drugs regularly iii. In comparison, about 136 million people drink alcohol regularly and 70 million smoke tobacco Media Tool “Obama Says It’s Important That Marijuana Legalization Move Forward” A short clip by MSNBC about drug use, legalization, and the possible consequences. B. Homeland Security and Individual Rights 1. Counterterrorism and Civil Libertiesa. Patriot Act i. Was passed 6 weeks after the 9/11terrorist attacks and reauthorized in 2009 ii. An expansion of the definition of what it means to “engage in terrorist activity. iii. Greater leeway for law enforcement agents to track Internet use, access private financial records, and wiretap those suspected of terrorist activity. iv. A reduction in the amount of evidence that law enforcement agents need to gather before taking a terrorist suspect into custody.2. Homeland Security and Civil Libertiesa. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees “freedom of speech.” b. The Fourth Amendment protects against “unreasonable searches and seizures.” c. The Sixth Amendment guarantees a trial by jury to a person accused of a crime.3. Domestic Terrorisma. Within the US with little or no help from international terroristsb. Terrorists are often alienated individualsc. Often involves outrage about American military excursions against Muslims in the Middle East Class Discussion/Activity Discuss how the Tsarnaev brothers fit the profile of domestic terrorists.  C. The Emergence of Victims’ Rights1. Advocacy for Victims’ Rightsa. Began in the 1970’sb. Previously victims had no rights i. Victims were forced to deal with physical, emotional, and financial consequences of crime by themselves2. Legislative Effortsa. All 50 states now provide legal rights to victimsb. 2004 Crime Victims’ Rights Actc. Greater presence in criminal proceedingsd. Critics: i. Legislative efforts have failed ii. Victim statements have led to bias in the system What If Scenario What if you were a victim of a house burglary and the police caught the burglar? How would you like to participate in the criminal proceedings? What do you think would be the pros and cons of your participation? D. Inmate Population Trendsa.

Six states have abolished the death penalty in the past six years Media Tool “California’s death penalty violates U.S. Constitution” A news clip by the Los Angeles Times about a recent ruling about California’s death penalty Discussion: Discuss the reason for the ruling; that is, why has the death penalty been ruled unconstitutional? What could be the impact of this ruling on the future of the death penalty in California and the US? 3. Incarceration and Racea. African Americans make up only 13 percent of the general population in the United Sates, but the number of black men in state and federal prisons is significantly larger than the number of white menb.

Lecture NotesIn Chapter 1, students are introduced to the concept of crime. Crime is defined as an act that violates criminal law and is punishable by criminal sanctions. In modern times, crime is considered an offense against society, and alleged criminals are prosecuted by the state rather than by victims. Society determines how behaviors are criminalized in several differing ways. The consensus model asserts that citizens share a perception of morality and will outlaw those behaviors that violate it. The conflict model argues that citizens do not share similar moral values, and that the dominant group in society will impose its morality through law. Encourage students to discuss the process of criminalizing behavior. What crimes have emerged in their lifetimes? Which model do they think best describes how those behaviors were criminalized? Have them consider a number of criminal offenses, ranging from stalking (criminalized in 1990) to the victimless crime of illegally downloading music and software (criminalized in the last decade).Also in Chapter 1, students are introduced to the purpose and goals of the criminal justice system.  Students are given the specific goals of our criminal justice system: 1) protecting society from potential crimes of dangerous offenders, 2) determining when an offense has been committed and the appropriate punishment, 3) the rehabilitation of offenders, and 4) supporting crime victims.  These specific goals are viewed in the overall goal of maintaining justice.Additionally, students are introduced to the criminal justice system and its various components. Students learn about the concept of federalism, the three levels of law enforcement, the dual court system, and the correctional system. This is a good time to introduce students to the criminal justice system operating in your state. How are all three branches of the criminal justice system represented locally? Get to know your students by discussing what branch of the criminal justice system they are most fascinated by. If your class is primarily interested in law enforcement as a career field, you might use this information to shape your lesson plans for the semester, likewise if they are interested in the courts or corrections.Students also learn about the positive and negative trends of the criminal justice system as a whole in today’s world.  Students are presented with the tools utilized by law enforcement agencies that have had positive and negative effects on crime rates.  For example, the concepts of “proactive policing” and “hot spot policing” strategies are discussed.  The role of technology in the criminal justice system is also presented, introducing students to technological advancements such as biometrics, including MORIS, facial recognition technology, hand geometry, and, of course, fingerprint technology.  Later, at the end of the chapter, students are also presented with the technological advancements of the internet and social media.  For example, the Casey Anthony trial is discussed, pointing out that the tool of Twitter was successfully utilized by the 9thJudicial District Court of Florida to provide the public with important trial information.  The negative aspects of the criminal justice system today are also pointed out.  Specifically, the challenges of gang violence, gun violence, and the illegal drug trade are identified as three of the major challenges facing law enforcement today.  This would be a good time to have students identify how the changes in law enforcement strategies and technologies have affected the major crime challenges in their specific geographic locale.Chapter 1 familiarizes students with the values and ethics of the criminal justice system. Our system of justice is often described as having two processes: one formal and one informal. The formal criminal justice process involves prescribed procedures such as booking, setting bail, and the like. For every step in the formal process, though, someone has discretion, and such discretion leads to an informal process. For example, even when prosecutors believe that a suspect is guilty, they have the discretion not to prosecute. The use of discretion is guided by two conflicting models of the criminal justice system, the due process model and the crime control model. The due process model focuses on protecting individual rights of the criminal suspect as they move through the justice process.  The crime control model disagrees, arguing that the primary function of the process is to protect society from offenders by punishing criminal behavior whenever it is detected. Ask students which vision for the process seems most ideal to them. Should justice be individualized, or should discretion be largely limited to ensure that offenders are treated as uniformly as possible? Which objective is most important, in students’ opinion, protecting individual rights or controlling crime? Push them to think through their answer as if they were being investigated for suspicion of a crime. Would their view change if they were the criminal suspect rather than a potential victim?Finally, Chapter 1 discusses the role of the criminal justice system in the fight against terrorism.  Students are introduced to the Department of Homeland Security and its major tool in the fight against terrorism, the Patriot Act.  Students are given the “pros and cons” of some of the specific provisions of the Patriot Act that must be accounted for in Congress’ attempt to balance personal freedoms with personal safety.Key TermsBiometrics – methods to identify a person based on his or her unique physical characteristics, such as fingerprints or facial configuration.  (p.19)Capital crime – a criminal act that makes the offender eligible to receive the death penalty.  (p.25)Civil liberties – the basic rights and freedoms for American citizens guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, particularly in the Bill of Rights.  (p. 22)Conflict model – a criminal justice model in which the content of criminal law is determined by the groups that hold economic, political, and social power in a community.  (p. 6)Consensus model – a criminal justice model in which the majority of citizens share the same values and beliefs.

Critic of Pollock’s Art

Nevertheless, he also lauds Pollock’s genius in combining murals and drama as expressed by the use of Cubism, similar to that of Mexican muralists. After criticizing Pollock’s self-portrait, the critic then narrates the interesting and exciting journeys of Pollock into his life as an artist. Definitely, the mania that Pollock had on creating his work famous work Mural cannot be denied since he persevered day and night, relentlessly painting until he finished the work.The critic considers Pollock a rebel in expressing Abstract Art through his ( Pollock’s) extensive use of drippings that seem to be random but would converge later and produce a work of Art. In fact, Haber’s critic of Pollock’s works was satirical since asserted that his style was betweenImpressionism and Sunday Painting ( paragraph 3). Nevertheless, Haber salutes Pollock’s ability to scrawl which is an indicator of maturity in artists. The article also noted that this method of Pollock scared his future wife Lee Krasner.First, paint takes over its shallow space. It gets denser, a painting symmetry gets more obvious, and the technique gets varied and absorbing. A physicist has actually quantified the symmetry, not implausibly, with fractal geometry. When Pollock calls a painting Simmering Substance, one sees the heat but feels a refreshing cool.Despite these admirable comments of Haber, he still tries to psychoanalyze Pollock as he constantly inserts bits of the artist’s life in his article. Apparently, Pollock’s art is an expression of his grief and losses in life that can be attributed to his being an alcoholic. Similarly, Haber discussed the issue of depression by giving its operational definition according to the renowned psychologist and novelist Juliet Kristeva. It seems that Kristeva’s life has parallelism with Pollock’s. Haber then established the depression of Pollock and how it largely influenced his artworks.The article achieved abalance by citing the role of Lee Krasner in enhancing Pollock’s life as an artist. Aside from being a duty-bound wife struggling to cover his alcoholic husband, Haber relates that she was instrumental in introducing Pollock to Cubism. But the more refreshing part of the review was Haber’s analysis of how Pollock gained acceptance of the feminine side of art which is undoubtedly an influence of his wife.

Graphic Design

Although he was an excellent song writer and poet, William concentrated on the construction and decoration of buildings. Red house (William and Jane’s home) As seen in his works and character, William Morris ‘approach is more vibrant colorful and rich in aesthetics. He is big on color, textures of fabric. As a result, his work is more welcoming and pleasant to the eye as it is sophisticated. WALTER GROPIUS He was born in Berlin in 1883 and is remembered as a ground breaking architect and designer as well as the founder of the Bauhaus. Having discontinued his architecture studies in Munich, he went ahead and practiced as a freelance architect who had particular interest and taste in glass walls that seemed almost weightless. Evidently, his style in design did without historism, ornaments and the use of symbolic features. His emphasis was based mainly on the functionality of basic geometric bodies. A sample of his work includes the Faguswerk and the Musterfabrik done in the early 1911. … This designer has always denied that it is in him to design instead. he says that his agenda is to establish the methodology of design COMPARISON AND CONTRAST Although the two designers emerged from different worlds, William was from England and Walter from Germany, the two had some similarities to them. Walter was more concerned with the fit of the final work and space thereby the symmetry and geometry of the design sand final product while William was concerned with colorful well manicured and aesthetically appealing designs. At the end of the day, both had the same goal, to provide satisfactory and unique products for their clients. William’s philosophy of ‘less is more ‘shows that he was more concerned with the look and the design of his work and the general appeal it would have at the end of its construction. On the other hand, Walter is more concerned, not with designing, but explaining and finding meaning in the methodology of the designs. His work is therefore more mathematically calculated as is seen in his keenness to handiwork and the fit of planes and the close supervision of the production process from the beginning to the end. According to location of their work (Architectural) Water’s work does not require a lot of land for the sitting of his buildings as opposed to William whose intricate designs are flashier and require space for their luxury to be seen. 2. Using two images from each style (total of 4 images form any of our texts), describe how you would evaluate the importance of De Stijl and Constructivism on the development of modern design. Answer De Stijl is a Dutch word for Style. Walter The philosophy of his style was based on functionalism with a severe and doctrinaire insistence on the

Scientific paper about reconstructing 3D models of buildings

First, most of it is unorganized, uncalibrated, have uncontrolled illumination, image quality and resolution and is widely variable. In essence, coming up with a computer vision technique that can work with most of these images has proved to be a challenge for most researchers. Now how can researchers work with this huge resource. this paper proposes solution such as Image Based Rendering algorithm and Structure from Motion. While a few other researchers such as Brown and Lowe (Lowe 395) have used Structure from Motion to tackle the above problems, the technique used in this paper has several modifications. Structure from Motion is effective in 3D visualization and scene modeling and can operate on hundreds of images obtained from keyword queries (photo tourism). Through photo tourism, it is possible to reconstruct many world sites. In effect, an algorithm that can work effectively on internet photos can enable vital applications such as 3D visualization, communication/media sharing, and localization. Two recent breakthroughs in the field of computer vision namely Structure from Motion and Feature Matching will be the backbone of this paper. Through these techniques, it is possible to reconstruct buildings in 3D to offer virtual and interactive tours for internet users. You can also evaluate the current state of a building and identify degradation and areas that may require renovation or reconstruction. Further, we can come up with creations or display of any building of interest as long as we have its image. Sparse geometry and camera reconstruction The browsing and visualization components of this system requires exact information in regards to the orientation, relative location and inherent parameters like focal lengths for each photo in a collection and sparse three dimension scene geometry. The system also requires a geo-referenced coordinate frame. For the most part, this information can be obtained through electronic components and Global Positioning System gadgets over the internet. Image files in EXIF tags often have this data though the vast majority of these sources are mostly inaccurate. As such, this system will compute this data via computer vision techniques. First, we will detect feature points in every image after which the system will equate feature points between pairs of images. Finally, the system will run an iterative Structure from Motion procedure to retrieve the camera parameters. Since Structure from Motion procedure will only produce estimates and our system requires absolute values, the system will run iterative procedure to acquire better estimates. How this whole procedure unfolds is detailed below. Detecting feature points will be done using SIFT keypoint detector (Lowe 411). This technique has better invariance to image alteration. The next step is matching keypoint descriptors using the approximate bordering neighbors. For instance, if we want to match two images I and J, first we will create a kd-tree obtained from element descriptors in J. Next, for each element in I we will locate an adjacent neighbor in J using the kd-tree. For effectiveness, we can use ANN’s priority search algorithm. This technique limits each query to visit a maximum of two hundred bins in the kd-tree. Alternatively, we can use a technique described by Lowe (Lowe 95). In the technique, for each
