Portland cement pervious concrete's ability to infiltrate water has encouraged its use for stormwater management. However, the material has suffered historically poor acceptance due to a lack of data related to long term infiltration rates and rainfall retention which leads to an undefined credit for stormwater management. Before stormwater management(More)
Green roofs, which have been used for several decades in many parts of the world, offer a unique and sustainable approach to stormwater management. Within this paper, evidence is presented on water retention for an irrigated green roof system. The presented green roof design results in a water retention volume on site. A first principle mass balance(More)

Student retention and curriculum reform are two topics that are widely addressed by Colleges of Engineering throughout the United States. Many approaches are currently being taken in response to these issues. One common approach is the development of a freshman experience course or freshman seminar. At the University of Central Florida College of(More)

Patients with rare genetic diseases are becoming increasingly recognised worldwide as an important public health challenge. Despite dramatic advances in public medicine and genomic research in China, the needs of the rare disease patient population are far from being met. Lack of accurate epidemiological data in China means that the true number of patients(More)
