As a built environment student you are likely to be required to research, write and submit a dissertation as a core component of your degree studies. As a vocational profession, students of the built environment often have strong practical aspirations. Writing a Built Environment Dissertation provides practical guidance and will help to steer you into a position where you can develop a good dissertation by mixing your practical strengths with more theoretical tools. The book is ordered around a common dissertation structure: that is, it starts with material that should be in the introduction and finishes with material that should be in the conclusion. Each chapter provides a commentary on the kind of information that you should put in each chapter of your dissertation, supported by a variety of examples using a range of methodological designs. The book has a strong focus on data collection, data analysis, reliability and validity – all areas where student dissertations are often weak. Material that will help you think about study skills and ethics is embedded throughout the book, and the chapters on qualitative and quantitative analysis will show you how to carry out a rigorous analysis while avoiding some of the complexity in statistical work. If you are an under-graduate student in the final year of an honours degree programme in the built environment, or perhaps a student at masters or PhD level and have been away from academic study for some time, then this book will help you to write a more innovative and thorough dissertation.

The Community Initiative LEADER provides funding for rural areas and local actors and seeks to establish links between actions for the development of the rural economy. It aims to implement integrated, effective and sustainable strategies for rural development. This dissertation will elaborate a concept for the ?Broads and Rivers? Local Action Group (LAG) in Norfolk, England, in order to be prepared for the next financial perspective of the European Union and its future funding programmes. This will be based on an analysis of the current administration regarding its efficiency and impact on the area. Although the dissertation is based on this particular local LEADER+ case study, the fundamentals and the recommendations are not necessarily specific to this area and may be implemented in other rural areas across the European Union. The dissertation will demonstrate how the complex network of the LAG and its members was originally implemented and will analyse how it functions on a day to day basis. The basis for research and the given examples of the dissertation result from the role of the author as statutory representative of the Broads National Park Authority.

Though usually seen as just marginally related to the key academic goals of establishing claims and reputations, acknowledgement as a genre is widely employed in academic discourse to express gratitude for the contribution of an individual or an institution so that writers establish a favorable academic and social position. Having considered the significance of acknowledgment texts in academic writing and the fact that little, if any, has been devoted to highlight dissertation acknowledgments in the Iranian academic context, the current study, in the first phase, examined the generic structure adopting Swales’ (1990) and in the second phase, relying on the face theory proposed by Arundale (2006), targeted the politeness strategies of 70 doctoral dissertation acknowledgments written by native speakers of Persian (NSP) and native speakers of English (NSE).

Revision with unchanged content. Sufficient axial torque and push must be applied with the hands to perform many activities of work, daily living and recreation. Slippage between the hands and work object can result in failure to complete the task and hand injuries. Also, repeated forceful exertions can result in fatigue, damage to the body, and cumulative trauma disorders. This dissertation aims to develop and evaluate biomechanical models that describe axial torque and push on a cylindrical handle in relation to contact force distribution, hand-handle friction, handle size, and the force application direction. In addition, a simple method for measuring hand static friction coefficients proposed in this dissertation can be easily used in the field in a timely manner by ergonomics practitioners or product designers to design more efficient and safer work objects. These findings in this dissertation can be implemented into the design of work objects to reduce required muscle activities for tasks that involve axial torque and push exertion, and thus reduce injuries from hand slippage and the risk of fatigue and musculoskeletal disorders.
This dissertation investigates the production and perception of Shona lexical tone at the disyllabic level. The focus is two fold; i) the effect of brain lesions on the production and perception of lexical tone, ii) the influence of linguistic experience with pitch contrasts on the ability to perceive Shona lexical tone with an emphasis on the strategies used to distinguish lexical tones. The dissertation evaluates the currently available hypotheses on the lateralization of lexical tone (Van Lancker, 1980; Van Lancker & Sidtis, 1992) to account for the patterns seen in Shona brain damaged patients. The second part of the dissertation examines the effect of linguistic experience on lexical tone processing focusing on the strategies underlying the performance of three groups: neurologically intact Shona, Thai and German listeners, and also the effect of increasing phonetic contrasts on the performance of the listeners. The aim here is to examine the perceptual ability of healthy native and non-native speakers of languages that use pitch phonemically at the syllable level (Thai & Shona) and/or at the sentential level (German).
This dissertation focuses on the expatriate experience of US-TAs (United States Teaching Assistants) and how they are affected by acculturation and culture shock throughout their stays in Austria. Although US-TAs are influenced to varying degrees by acculturation and culture shock, the research shows these are not the primary reasons why some US-TAs leave Austria after one (1) year and why others seek to stay for a second (2nd) year. Instead, this dissertation will indicate how the search for identity (particularly relating to one’s job/career) among US-TAs plays an important role in their decision to try and stay in Austria or not for a 2nd year. Additionally, the abroad experiences of US-TAs are compared with the abroad experiences of private industry expatriates from an Austrian MNC (Multinational Corporation) and from an American MNC. This comparative study was carried out with both quantitative and qualitative research methods from May-November, 2010 in Austria and in the U.S.A. The dissertation concludes with a summary of the comparative results.
Subdivision for curves and surfaces has gained popularity in Computer Graphics and Computer Aided Geometric Design during the past two decades. In this dissertation, we design a hexahedral-based, approximation scheme. Ternary wavelets based on an interpolating 4-point ternary stationary subdivision scheme for compressing fractal-like signals are introduced. In this dissertation, error bounds between binary/ternary subdivision curves/surfaces and their control polygons after k-fold subdivision in terms of the maximal differences of the initial control point sequences and constants that depend on the subdivision mask is estimated. The bound is independent of the process of subdivision and can be evaluated without recursive subdivision. Our technique is independent of parameterizations therefore it can be easily and efficiently implemented.
This dissertation examines the impact of the Albanian legislation in the prosecution of human trafficking and related exploitation in the context of international legal instruments and policy documents. The purpose of this dissertation follows from the fact that the simple adoption of international treaties and mere criminalization of human trafficking are not sufficient to suppress and successfully prosecute this offense. To address the lack of specific and adequate legislation on trafficking at the national level a de jure/de facto analysis of the domestic legislation compliance vis-a-vis relevant international norms and human rights principles took place. While Albania has enacted anti-trafficking legislation modeled after the Trafficking Protocol, the number of prosecutions, as compared to the number of cases filed and the estimated scope of the problem, remains unsatisfactory. The dissertation draws upon an analytical inquiry of the domestic legislation, relevant case files, and interviews with prosecutors to conduct an examination of the obstacles that impede the prosecution of trafficking.
