Building Technology Lecture Series: "High Performance Green Buildings"
Speaker: Martha VanGreem, CTL Group PE (Illinois), MBA, LEED Accredited Professional Principal Engineer & Manager
Time: 12:30p–2:00p
Location: 7-431
ASHRAE recently released a new standard, ASHRAE/USGBC/IES Standard 189.1-2009, Standard for the Design of High Performance Green Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings. This is the first consensus-based, national green building standard written in mandatory, code-intended language in the U.S. It is not a point or rating system but has actual minimum requirements, thus providing clearer application and guidance for its adoption into local codes. A general overview of topics is presented including site planning, water efficiency, energy efficiency, impact of materials and resources, indoor environmental quality, and plans for operation. These plans include commissioning, maintenance, service life, green cleaning, and transportation management. Commissioning ensures the building performs as designed. Green buildings do not need to cost more, especially if green design strategies are considered early in the design stage using integrated design. Savings in utility costs during the operation of the building often offset any higher initial costs.

Martha VanGeem has 28 years of consulting experience at CTLGroup in Building Science and Sustainability. This experience includes energy efficiency, energy and green building standards (including being a member of ASHRAE SSPC 189.1), and LCI/LCA. Ms. VanGeem has investigated moisture problems and performed energy analyses for numerous concrete and wood frame buildings.

Process Modeling and Analysis of CO2 Purification for Pressurized Oxy-Coal Combustion

Speaker: Chukwunwike Iloeje, MIT, Dept. Mechanical Engineering

Time: 4:00p–5:00p

Location: 3-343

Center for Energy and Propulsion Research Seminar Series

Oxy-coal combustion technology utilizes a high concentration oxygen stream from an air separation unit (ASU) and the combustion products consists primarily of CO2 and H2O, contaminants like NOx, and SOx, and non-condensable gases like argon, oxygen and nitrogen. This combustion product stream needs to be purified to meet pipeline transport and storage specifications for sequestration or enhanced oil recovery (EOR).

For these reasons, CO2 purification is a very important part of the oxy-coal combustion system. A number of processes have been proposed for the removal of NOx and SOx. One such method takes advantage of a pressure-enhanced mechanism that involves SOx removal as H2SO4 and NOx removal as HNO3 in absorber columns. In this study, we describe a comprehensive CO2 purification process model developed for an elevated pressure oxy-combustion system. The model presented employs high-pressure absorber columns for NOx and SOx removal and low temperature phase separation for removal of non-condensable gases. We present modifications to the NOx and SOx removal units that improve performance and reduce the cost penalty for CO2 purification. This study also explores opportunities for energy integration of the CO2 purification train with the rest of the oxy-combustion power cycle and shows the resulting impact on the overall efficiency of the plant.

Deepwater Oil Spills: Processes, Behavior, and Modeling

Speaker: Poojitha D. Yapa, Clarkson University

Time: 2:30p–3:30p

Location: 48-316

Environmental Fluid Mechanics / Hydrology Seminar Series
weekly presentations from local and international researchers in the field of hydrology and environmental fluid mechanics.

Deepwater oil spills are much less frequent than surface or near surface oil spills. But when they occur, they tend to cause large scale environmental impact. IXTOC I spill (not so deep at 50 m) 30 years ago and the more recent Horizon spill ( in very deep water at 1500 m) in the Gulf of Mexico are examples of massive underwater releases of oil and gas. Modeling deepwater spills are much more complex than surface spills. Some of many reasons for the complexity are that oil is mixed with gases, the high pressure, and cold water temperature. In these conditions, gases tend to combine with water and form a substance called gas hydrates. Gas hydrates are like ice and have a similar density. Hydrate formation is a physically reversible process. Gas hydrates revert to free gas when they travel up to the shallower regions. Modeling deepwater oil releases means dealing with four phases: oil, gas, hydrates, and water. Each phase affects the transport and fate of the other. It is a four dimensional (x, y, z, and t) modeling problem that requires the integration of hydrodynamics, plume thermodynamics, gas thermodynamics, and gas chemistry/physics.

In this talk, I will discuss the processes that oil and gas undergo in their travel from deepwater to the water surface and how to model them. Model formulation and comparison of simulations with the limited data available will be discussed. How underwater oil plumes can be formed, will also be explained.

Staying together: Understanding People and Media in Synchronous Connected Systems.

Speaker: David Ayman Shamma, Yahoo! Research
Date: Friday, October 8 2010
Time: 1:00PM to 2:00AM
Refreshments: 12:50PM
Location: Patil/Kiva Seminar Room, 32-G449
Host: Rob Miller, MIT CSAIL
Contact: Katrina Panovich,
Abstract: The things we do together spawn conversations; gathering with our friends and families to watch programs, concerts, and events, we share the experience through backchannel conversations, social asides and mutual displays of agreement and disagreement. How do these sharing of experiences in turn shape how we understand the actual event? This talk presents real-world applications designed to facilitate synchronous conversations while sharing media. First, I will examine how people use status updates, such as on Twitter, while they watch live events on TV. By accounting for temporal and conversational features, one can use tweets to segment a long political debate into logical questions. I will also describe new methods for retrieving conversationally salient, not document salient, terms. Second, I will present Zync, a system for synchronized video sharing over instant messaging; in effect this is conversational video on demand. From observing how a YouTube video is shared within a conversation, we develop methods for media segmentation and summarization. Finally, I will show how using implicit conversational data can outperform explicit annotations in automated classification tasks for online videos. Throughout the talk, I will discuss how these examples extend online infrastructures to build highly connected experiences.

Bio: David Ayman Shamma is a research scientist in the Internet Experiences group at Yahoo! Research. He researches synchronous environments and connected experiences both online and in-the-world. Focusing on creative expression and sharing frameworks, he designs and prototypes systems for multimedia-mediated communication, as well as develops targeted methods and metrics for understanding how people communicate online in small environments and at web scale. Ayman is the creator and lead investigator on the Yahoo! Zync project. Using models of creativity and sharing from his research, Ayman creates media art installations that have been reviewed by The New York Times, International Herald Tribune, and Chicago Magazine and exhibited internationally, including Second City Chicago, the Berkeley Art Museum, SIGGRAPH ETECH, Chicago Improv Festival, and Wired NextFest/NextMusic.

Ayman holds a B.S./M.S. from the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition at The University of West Florida and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Intelligent Information Laboratory at Northwestern University. Before Yahoo!, he was an instructor at the Medill School of Journalism; he has also taught courses in computer science and studio art departments. Prior to earning his Ph.D., he was a visiting research scientist for the Center for Mars Exploration at NASA Ames Research Center.

Harvard University and the Obama Administration present a panel discussion. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) forecasts indicate that almost 90 percent of world economic growth over the next five years will take place outside of the United States — with emerging and developing country imports expected to grow the fastest at over 12 percent. As global markets become increasingly interconnected, it is critical that the U.S. maintain and promote a highly competitive export economy. The panel event will provide U.S. competitiveness perspectives in relation to China, India, and Brazil, highlight U.S. Commercial Service export initiatives, and address proposed Obama Administration efforts to increase innovation. These include additional transportation infrastructure spending, making permanent the existing temporary R&D tax credit, and temporarily allowing businesses to deduct 100% of the cost of new investments in plant and equipment.

Rock Shop #8: A Social Media Experiment (part of FutureM)
Wednesday, October 06, 2010 from 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM (ET)
Middle East, corner of Brookline and Mass Aves
Cambridge, MA

FutureM is a first-ever, multi-location event experience throughout Greater Boston running from October 4-8. Featuring the freshest thinkers in marketing, media, and technology, FutureM's events feature the edge of what's new and what's next in marketing.

As part of FutureM, Clay Fernald of The Middle East, Charles McEnerney of Well-Rounded Radio, and Steve Theo of Pirate Pirate! have organized a free evening event as part of FutureM at The Middle East Nightclub and Restaurant on Wed, October 6th at 7 PM entitled "Rock Shop Boston #8: A Social Media Experiment."

The event will feature a panel including members of the bands Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling, Lagoon, Aaron Perrino of The Sheila Divine and Dear Leader, and RIBS talking about how they are using social media to manage their careers and answer questions from the audience (which is the format of the regular Rock Shop Boston formats).

We've put together a mix tape of the four acts playing so you can give a listen.

Each band will then perform live at The Middle East as "the experiment" begins...

These days, many entertainment events often limit how the audience documents the event, with concerns about intellectual property, copyright, unions or fuzzy legal boundaries, but what if you didn't worry about those things and simply made it easy for bloggers, tweeters, photographers, and videographers to get have "all access" to capturing, documenting, and promoting an artist and event?

What kind of buzz would it build for the artist, both online and off? What sort of "cloud of information" would it create for them...or could for other arts events--from music to dance to visual arts to theatre--and all its participants?

Would it change the speed at which new fans were to become aware of their work and how they get engaged with it? Would it alter how quickly they went from unknowns to rising stars?
