1. A. Mazzucchi. STUDIO DELLE MODIFICAZIONI SUBITE DALLO SCHELETRO DURANTE IL PROCESSO DI COMBUSTIONE SU SOGGETTI NOTI.

Degree: 2015, Università degli Studi di Milano

Since 2012, research has been conducted at the Lambrate Crematory (Milan). The aim was to analyse the cremains of dissected subject, decesead between 2012 and 2014 in order to collect information and match it with pre and peri-mortem data (sex, age, weight, height, pathologies, conservation condition of cadaver) and the parameters of combustion (temperature, oxygen percentage, duration of fire). The cremated remains of 173 adult Caucasians and 6 adult Asian producted by methan gas and electric ovens were analised. Of these, 162 had been dissected. Average age was 66 years old, height 168 cm, weight 76 kg and body mass index (BMI) 26,67. Cremains on average weigh 2738,04 g and 2276,90 g, with and without the fraction of fragments of <2 mm, respectively. Various measures were taken of the sex-pooled and of the male and female sub-samples in order to provide osteometric intervals standardized on the cremate sample. In particular: weight of each skeletal region; fragment dimensions; thickness of frontal, parietal and occipital bones and diaphysis of humerus and femur; antero-posterior and medium-lateral diameter of diaphysis and head vertical diameter and of humerus and femur. Most of the variables show statistically significant differences between males and females. Applicability of sexual metric methods, standardized on portoguese cremains sample, has been verified for present sample. The cremation process starts at a temperature of 600° C, reaching an average maximum temperature of 1026° C (min-max: 895° C – 1155° C), in about 30 minutes (30.10 ± 1.85; min-max: 5-50 minutes) and lasts on average for 80 minutes (min-max: 65-90 minutes). After the maximum temperature has been reached, the temperature falls off gradually to 600° C and the remains are recovered. Cremations in a gas oven determine the survival of 96.97% of sex diagnostic element, 75.72% of those diagnostic of age and shows 8,94% of deformations. Thanks to their protected position the auricular surfaces survive better than the pubic symphysis, in a ratio of about 2:1. The pubic symphysis seem show a higher survival in obese subjects. Deformations that do not appear to be related to the conservation of the cadaver or to combustion variables were observed in only 8.94% of cases. With regards to fragment colour, carbonized and grey residues were observed in more than 90% of subjects, representing a dishomogeneous physical characteristics and cadaver states of preservation. Chromatic differences taken by fresh bones were still recognizable after cremation: yellowish colour (2,5Y: 8/3, 8/4, 8/6, 8/8; 5Y: 8/3, 8/4, 8/6, 8/8 of on the Munsell Soil Chart) spreaded on the osseous surface, suggests body mummification or decomposition; brownish colouration (10YR: 6/6, 6/8, 5/4, 5/6, 5/8; 4/6; 3/6) may indicate a burial period of cadaver burial beforeprior to cremation. Among the cremains analysed were 168 subject with Striker circular saw autopsy cuts on the cranium and 38 with perimortem cranial fractures due to falls (16 cases), being struck by… Advisors/Committee Members: tutor: C.

2. Lott, Olivia Katharine. Give Me A Clean Death | Rethinking Our Modern Death-Care System.

Degree: 2021, University of Washington

Thousands of tons of carcinogenic chemicals are interred in the ground every year by the modern death care industry in the United States alone. We, as a modern society, have also collectively chosen to relegate the spaces that our dead occupy, sequestering death to hospitals, funeral parlors and cemeteries, consequently removing it, as a concept, from public view. Much of our death care infrastructure is out of sight and out of mind. Simultaneously, we are running out of space to house our dead. This thesis urges that we rethink how we choose to approach the death-care industry, repurposing neglected, non-functional spaces within our urban fabric as modern cemeteries, columbariums and memorials. Why expend resources erecting new structures, when our cities already encompass so many abandoned and neglected spaces that are already interwoven into the historic palimpsest of our urban metropolises? Repurposing historical structures that are no longer serving their original function has been steadily gaining popularity within the field of historic preservation. Why not expand how we choose to repurpose such structures, to encompass a function as integral to our society-at-large as how we choose to care for our deceased? In this thesis, I propose the adaptive reuse of a defunct industrial site along the city of Bellingham’s downtown waterfront into a functioning death-care site and public park. Advisors/Committee Members: Manzo, Lynne C. (advisor).
