HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL CIRCULATION IN UNIVERSITY INSTRUCTIONAL AND RESEARCH BUILDINGS.
KINNE, W.S., JR.
TO FACILITATE CIRCULATION PLANNING IN BUILDINGS USED FOR HIGHER EDUCATIONAL INSTRUCTION AND RESEARCH, A PILOT STUDY WAS CONDUCTED WITH THE INTENT OF DEVELOPING GENERALIZED RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL CIRCULATION FACILITIES. A SURVEY TECHNIQUE WAS DEVELOPED AND APPLIED TO FOUR CLASSROOM AND TWO RESEARCH BUILDINGS IN ORDER TO OBSERVE AND RECORD--(1) CIRCULATION ON PARTICULAR FLOORS DURING PEAK WORK LOADS, (2) NUMBER OF PERSONS IN EACH ROOM ON A FLOOR DURING THE MORNING, (3) THE LENGTH OF THE KEY CIRCULATION ROUTES, (4) TRAVEL TIME OF KEY ROUTES DURING NON-PEAK PERIODS, AND (5) TRAVEL TIME OF KEY ROUTES DURING PEAK PERIODS. DATA ON PERMISSIBLE DENSITY, CLASSROOM UTILIZATION AND PLANNING STANDARDS WERE CONSIDERED IN THE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HORIZONTAL CIRCULATION. IN ADDITION TO THESE FACTORS, VERTICAL CIRCULATION RECOMMENDATIONS CONSIDERED LAND, BUILDING AND CIRCULATION FACILITIES COSTS. IN ORDER TO PLACE THE STUDY WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF CORRECT DESIGN PRACTICE THE HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL CIRCULATION RECOMMENDATIONS WERE COMPARED WITH BUILDING CODES OF TWO CITIES, THREE STATES AND TWO NATIONAL ASSOCIATIONS. IN ADDITION TO INTRA-BUILDING CIRCULATION, CLASS SCHEDULING AND PHYSICAL PLANT LOCATION WILL DETERMINE CIRCULATION TIME AND DISTANCE. SURVEY PROCEDURE AND THE DATA COLLECTION FORM ARE PRESENTED IN THE APPENDIX. (BH)
