Abstract:

A proposed pentagonal tower cab is investigated with particular attention being given to relations between several design features and visibility. While shape itself was not studied as a design alternative, certain findings on the effects of shape of the cab, as well as on slope of glass windows, height of ceiling, interior equipment, and other dimensions, are presented. Concurrent analytic, physical, and operational approaches were utilized. Based on progress to date, conclusions and suggestions for future investigation are stated. An automated window washing system is proposed, and results of preliminary tests of the system are reported.
