The Capstone Project Electronic Portfolio (CPEP) is a web-based project and information center. It
contains material produced for a year-long Senior Thesis class. Its purpose, in addition to providing
central storage of individual assignments, is to foster communication and collaboration between
student, faculty consultant, course instructors, and industry consultants. This website is dedicated
to the research and analysis conducted via guidelines provided by the Department of Architectural
Engineering. For an explanation of this capstone design course and its requirements click here.

While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages
of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work-in progress
for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and
construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Yuduo Zhao.
Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed.
Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated
into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.

Note: Since Internet Explorer 9 was the only available browser in the AE computer labs at the time this website
was designed, it was optimized for that browser only. So, the website layout may look odd if you're viewing it
from a browser other than IE9, or if you don't have the Myriad Pro typeface installed on your computer.
