EARTH STRUCTURES STABILITY UNDER RAPID DRAWDOWN CONDITIONS

Zofia ZIĘBA/ Michał MOLENDA/ Kinga WITEK

The paper presents the slope stability analysis of the unmodernised section of the Groszowice separation levee in the condition of water level changes, particularly after rapid drawdown. Based on soils field and laboratory tests, the stability analysis of the construction was conducted with GEO5 software. For the upper levee, the utilisation degree of slopes resistance was determined according to the Eurocode 7. Calculations were conducted for normal and high water level, as well as after rapid (..)

THE CONCEPT OF MULTIFUNCIONAL WALL - AN ENERGY SYSTEM INTEGRATED IN A SINGLE WALL

Jarosław FIGASZEWSKI/ Joanna SOKOŁOWSKA-MOSKWIAK

In 1981 Mike Davis proposed a new design of the glass wall, which he called a polyvalent wall that would dynamically respond to changing environmental conditions. The idea of an inter-active component in a building envelope has become a source of inspiration for the proponents of external wall concepts. The proposed designs are important because they apply principles of multifunctionality based on cooperation between the wall layers and the dynamic reaction of changing external and internal ther(..)

INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS OF CORRUGATED SHELLS RATIONALIZING THE DESIGN AND ERECTION PROCESSES FOR FREE BUILDING FORMS

Aleksandra PROKOPSKA/ Jacek ABRAMCZYK

An innovative method of shaping free architectural forms of buildings and their morphological systems roofed with complex shells made up of folded steel sheets transformed from plane into shell shapes is presented. An interdisciplinary character of the paper results from the diversity and complexity of the considered issues. Complex morphological systems of the buildings formed of integrated multi-segment shell roofs and plane-walled elevations are achieved with the help of the geometrical metho(..)

FLOW CAPACITY ANALYSIS FOR MPL KATOWICE PYRZOWICE TERMINALS WITH THE INDICATION OF ZONES REQUIRING ARCHITECTONIC CHANGES

Michał SITEK

In order to improve the quality of passenger service at an airport terminal it is necessary to continuously monitor the level of the services rendered. Devising a strategy for the process of modernization or extension of an airport, with a view to maintaining or elevating the standards offered, requires a skilled determination of the investment commencement time. The rationale behind such investments is a deliberate prognosis of changes in the numbers of passengers visiting the airport in order (..)

INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE RESISTANCE OF SIN GIRDERS REINFORCED WITH TENSIONED DIAGONAL BRACES

Witold BASIŃSKI/ Zbigniew KOWAL

The study presents the means of increasing resistance of girders with corrugated web by enhancing their shear resistance due to the application of diagonal braces subjected to advantageous tension. Diagonal braces were used in the near-support zones, which increased the shear resistance of the girder. Then, the web carries a greater shear load associated with bending. Experimental investigations on increased shear resistance of girder webs were performed using girders with webs having a height o(..)

FEM ANALYSIS OF CORRUGATED WEB GIRDERS REINFORCED WITH TENSIONED DIAGONAL BRACES 

Witold BASIŃSKI/ Zbigniew KOWAL

The study presents the application of FEM numerical analysis, performed with the Abaqus software [1], for theoretical estimation of the ultimate and critical shear and flexural resistance of corrugated web girders reinforced with tension diagonal braces. In FEM numerical models, different web failure modes, observed in physical experimental research into SIN girders were taken into consideration [2]. That was done depending on the inclination angle β of tension diagonal braces and the web thickn(..)

VIBRATION PROPAGATION IN SUBSOIL: IN-SITU TESTING AND NUMERICAL ANALYSES

Stefan PRADELOK/ Marian ŁUPIEŻOWIEC

This paper presents results obtained with the use of accelerometers during in-situ testing and its comparing with results from numerical simulations. Horizontal accelerations of propagating impulses caused by driving the prefabricated piles were recorded. Range of the quakes as well as amplitudes of longitudinal and transverse horizontal accelerations of propagating vibrations on the terrain surface were determined. The recorded results were used to calibrate the numerical model of the finite el(..)

USE OF CASING SOIL FROM SPENT MUSHROOM COMPOST FOR ENERGY RECOVERY PURPOSES IN POLAND

Monika CZOP/ Krzysztof PIKOŃ

Use of spent mushroom substrate (SMC) for energy production appears as a response to the problem with the utilization of this waste throughout the whole year. In the Polish national energy supply system, which is based mainly on hard coal and lignite, use of biomass may contribute to limiting CO2 emissions. The work presents a comparative analysis of the unit emission of CO2, CO, SO2, NOx and particle matter referred to the unit of energy produced from the referenced hard coal, spent mushroom su(..)

CONTRIBUTION TO THE SHORT MEASUREMENT METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE THERMAL CHARACTERISTICS OF EXISTING BUILDINGS: TOTAL HEAT TRANSMISSION COEFFICIENT ESTIMATION BASED ON DOUBLE MEASUREMENT

Henryk FOIT/ Agata ŚWIERC/ Wojciech FOIT

This article presents the way to determine the total heat transmission coefficient of a building based on double brief measurement and its practical application. It makes use of short measurement of heat consumption in a building and is based on the energy balance. In the proposed procedure the modified external temperature was used instead of the external air temperature. The modified external temperature takes into account the operation of solar radiation and wind on the building and the effec(..)

Krzysztof GASKA/ Agnieszka GENEROWICZ

Poland was collected 9.6 million tonnes of municipal waste in 2012 (plus update). The primary method of dealing with municipal waste collected was organized depositing them in landfills. Mixed municipal waste accounted for almost 90% of all municipal waste collected (8.6 million tonnes). Poland is one of the lowest in the EU in terms of the use energy from waste. The analysis of complex real-time physical processes, thermal waste processing and determination of their optimal parameters requires (..)

Bożena KARBOWSKA/ Mateusz SYDOW/ Włodzimierz ZEMBRZUSKI

High levels of heavy metals in the environment are dangerous for humans due to possible bioaccumulation of such contaminants by edible plants and herbivores. In this study, total content of cadmium and lead in the barrier dusts sampled from three noise barriers located along E261 expressway in Poland (near Poznań) was determined using flow-injection differentialpulse anodic stripping voltammetry (FIA DP-ASV). The results indicate that total content of the studied metals ranged from 0.09 to 0.6 m(..)
