A CASE STUDY ON THE IMPACT OF BUILDING ENVELOPE ON ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN HIGH-RISE RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS

Dinçer AYDIN/ Esma MIHLAYANLAR

Abstract The building envelope, the most important element in the energy consumption of a building, gains more importance due to the large amount of the surface area of building’s façade in high-rise buildings. The energy consumption of these buildings is increasing depending on their high transparency ratio as a result of decrease in the thermal resistance of the façade. The aim of this study is to show the importance of building envelope design in energy efficiency of high-rise residential bui(..)

COMPACT SINGLE-FAMILY HOUSING GENERATED BY PARAMETRIC DESIGN – SEARCH FOR OPTIMAL, SUSTAINABLE OR SMART DENSITIES

Tomasz BRADECKI/ Dawid KĄTNY

Abstract Single-family housing – the form of residential buildings expected by the society is often inconsistent with the theoretical optimum form of housing that is recommended in urban theories and ideas. Research indicates that most Poles want single-family housing, while its density is low in comparison with multi-family housing which provides a more compact city. The paper identifies the thesis to what degree it is possible to develop a compact city with single-family housing. The authors v(..)

POST OCCUPANCY EVALUATION OF ADAPTIVELY REUSED BUILDINGS: CASE STUDY OF AN OFFICE BUILDING IN SAUDI ARABIA

Mohammad B. HAMIDA/ Mohammad A. HASSANAIN

Abstract Adaptive reuse of buildings is the practice of converting the use of an originally designed built-environment to suit a new use. This conversion process has a direct bearing on the performance of the building, and the satisfaction of the users with the conditions of the converted built-environment. This paper presents the findings of a post occupancy evaluation (POE) of an adaptively reused student housing facility to an office building, as a case study. The POE was conducted to investi(..)

PALACE AT ŻYROWA. TRANSFORMATIONS FROM THE 15TH TO EARLY 20TH CENTURIES

Andrzej LEGENDZIEWICZ/ Aleksandra MARCINÓW

Abstract The paper presents the results of research carried out in the palace at Żyrowa. The introduction discusses the architecture of the palace, analyses source references to the site and identifies successive owners. The architectural research into technology, building material and architectural detail, as well as iconographic studies were the basis for the considerations. They gave grounds for the identification of the oldest building that dates back to the Gothic period and of the scope of(..)

METHOD OF DEVELOPING CONSERVATION GUIDELINES FOR REVITALISATION OF THE HISTORICAL URBAN ENSEMBLES CULTURAL LANDSCAPE

Bogna LUDWIG/ Sebastian WRÓBLEWSKI/ Agnieszka LISOWSKA/ Dorota BALIŃSKA-CIĘŻKI/ Grażyna BALIŃSKA

Abstract The paper presents a method developed and improved over many years (since 1982) by a team of researchers of the Faculty of Architecture of Wrocław University of Science and Technology for elaborating on guidelines for the conservation of cultural landscape areas. Thanks to systematic research – studies of the past changes to the landscape and analyses of the current state of affairs – they enable a synthesis of the whole spectrum of conservation protection and revalorisation problems of(..)

COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF SELECTED FINE GRAINED SOILS TREATED WITH CEMENT KILN DUST AND CALCAREOUS FLY ASH

Karolina KNAPIK-JAJKIEWICZ/ Grzegorz GAJ/ Adrian KOWALSKI/ Sandra PRĘDKA

Abstract This paper presents the results of unconfined compressive strength tests carried out on samples of two different fine grained soils mixed with anthropogenic materials produced in Poland, showing binding properties – cement kiln dust and fly ash obtained from combustion of brown coal in a pulverized boiler. The tests were performed on cylindrical samples in a testing machine for compression tests after various curing time ranging from 1 to 8 weeks. The conducted work constitutes the firs(..)

SHAPING OF AXIALLY COMPRESSED BIPOLARLY PRESTRESSED CLOSELY SPACED BUILT-UP MEMBERS

Monika SIEDLECKA

Abstract The paper presents a method of shaping and describing the geometry of bipolarly prestressed closely spaced built-up member with symmetrical supports and a bisymmetrical cross-section. The following has been defined as a function dependant on the position along the length of the x section of the closely spaced built-up member with determined geometrical parameters: intial elastic y0 (x) of the closely spaced built-up member chord in the prestressing zone, distance between the chords in t(..)

GEOSPATIAL DATA PROCESSING CHARACTERISTICS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING TASKS

Olga BUTENKO/ Stanislav HORELIK/ Oleh ZYNYUK

Abstract This paper explores the specifics of working with geospatial data when making decisions about the current environmental status of objects based on Earth space monitoring data. The expediency of sharing statistical data, Earth remote sensing data, and contact measurements is displayed. An analysis of the specifics of this approach to solving the problems of complex processing of multi-temporal a priori data obtained by various shooting equipment was carried out. The existing methods for (..)

TREATMENT OF WASTEWATER FROM THE FOUNDRY INDUSTRY USING FENTON PROCESS

Paulina DAWCZAK/ Mariusz DUDZIAK

Abstract The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of the Fenton process in the treatment of selected wastewater from the foundry industry, which was initially coagulated. In the coagulation process, contaminants found in the suspended and colloidal phase were separated from the wastewater. The selection of the favorable course of the Fenton process was carried out with the following parameters in mind: wastewater pH, hydrogen peroxide dose, Fe2+/H2O2 mass ratio and process time. Th(..)

EVALUATION OF THE ECOLOGICAL EFFECT OF BIODEGRADABLE WASTE PROCESSING IN A COMPREHENSIVE MUNICIPAL WASTE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Agnieszka GENEROWICZ

Abstract Recycling of biodegradable waste is one of the trends in the recovery of organic matter together with its use for reclamation, but most importantly the reduction of biodegradable waste and the reduction of waste for disposal. The paper presents the use of the decision analysis method in the selection of the most advantageous organic recycling solution in a large agglomeration. The proposed method uses the tool of life cycle analysis (LCA) and decisional analysis.

APPLICATION OF POTASSIUM FERRATE(VI) IN THE TREATMENT OF SELECTED WATER AND WASTEWATER POLLUTANTS – SHORT REVIEW

Simona KLIŚ/ Krzysztof BARBUSIŃSKI/ Maciej THOMAS/ Anna MOCHNACKA

Abstract The paper presents the application of potassium ferrate(VI) (K2FeO4 ) for the removal of selected pollutants from water and wastewater. The research results on the degradation of endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs), decomposition of surfactants (SPCs), personal care products (PCPs), pharmaceuticals and their metabolites have been reviewed. Due to K2FeO4 strong oxidizing and coagulating properties, high stability, non–toxic by–products and non–selectivity it is sometimes called “enviro(..)

BEST AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGIES FOR WASTE CO-FIRING APPLICATIONS

Krzysztof WYKA/ Anna SKOREK-OSIKOWSKA

Abstract Thermal transformation of waste is one way in which the negative impact of human activities on the environment can be reduced. Thermal waste treatment is generally negatively associated by the public as hazardous and harmful to the environment. In this study the authors present the possibility of waste management in the process of co-firing with coal using BAT (Best Available Techniques) for both the combustion process and the exhaust gas purification process. Co-firing of coal with RDF(..)
