THE INFLUENCE OF WATER MATRIX ON THE SEPARATION OF BISPHENOL A WITH LOW AND HIGH PRESSURE DRIVEN MEMBRANE TECHNIQUES

Mariusz DUDZIAK/ Edyta BURDZIK-NIEMIEC

The unrestricted access to clean and inexpensive water is perceived as one of the most basic humanitarian objectives; however, it still remains a challenge in 21st century due to many factors such as constantly increasing pollution of surface water. One of the remedies for this situation might be so called in-depth municipal waste water treatment. The objective of this paper was to examine the efficacy of the pressure-driven membrane filtration (ultra- and nanofiltration) to remove bisphenol A f(..)

QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE RESEARCH IN HOUSING AREAS: CONTEMPORARY HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS IN SILESIAN METROPOLITAN AREA, POLAND

Tomasz BRADECKI/ Agata TWARDOCH

Between 2000 and 2010 housing development in Poland changed dramatically. Local development plans released large rural areas on the outskirts of most cities for single-family housing. As a result, there are many new low-density housing estates and very few high-density estates within city centres. The paper refers to a research method that has been developed to measure and compare various housing developments. The method can be used to show both density indicators and a general overview of diffe(..)

RESIDENT OPINION SURVEYS AS A CONTRIBUTION TO IMPROVED HOUSING STOCK MANAGEMENT

Anna OSTAŃSKA

The aim of research was to evaluate the quality of living conditions in selected prefabricated housing estates built in 1978–1986 in Lublin. The focus was on assessing how this built environment corresponds to current needs of the residents, and on setting priorities for rehabilitation measures in those areas. The method of collecting input was an opinion survey based on an original questionnaire, conducted in the form of direct interview. Statistical analysis of the questionnaires allowed the r(..)

CONTEMPORARY PUBLIC SPACES AS MEETING PLACES

Kinga PALUS/ Joanna ZABAWA-KRZYPKOWSKA

Examples presented in the paper are focused on functional and formal elements that have a positive impact on the attractiveness of the use of public space in the city. They show how in different scale and using various architectural and urban elements to create or transform a space that has gained acceptance and responded to the needs of different user groups. The study used methods of observation and comparison of selected examples in different locations in the world and the method of analysis (..)

CURRENT VENTILATION AND AIR QUALITY PROBLEMS AGAINST HISTORICAL SOLUTIONS

Rafał RADZIEWICZ-WINNICKI

The paper describes the issue of ventilation and air quality in buildings with reference to regular tightening of heating standards. The purpose of the work is to show the risks related to excessive insulation of buildings, which is thought to have a negative influence on users’ well-being and health. The development of issues related to thermal comfort has often led to erroneous solutions. As a result, problems such as “Sick Building Syndrome” and “Building Related Illness” has developed in the(..)

PASSIVE SYSTEMS IN RAISING ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF PUBLIC UTILITY BUILDINGS – ACTION SIMULATIONS

Marek A. WOŁOSZYN

Public utility buildings are formally, structurally and functionally complex entities. Frequently the process of their design involves retroactive reconsideration of energy engineering issues, once a building concept has already been completed. At that stage minor formal corrections are made along with the design of the external layer of the building, satisfying or even exceeding applicable standards. Architecture students do the same when designing assigned public utility buildings. It can be d(..)

RISK ASSESMENT OF WATER VAPOR CONDENSATION IN WALL MADE OF HEMP-LIME COMPOSITE

Przemysław BRZYSKI

The paper presents issues associated with moisture presence in the wall partitions. As the wall material a lime-hemp composite was selected. Materials containing organic components are sensitive to excessive amount of moisture. One of the most important sources of moisture in the walls is diffusive water vapor, which may condense inside the partition. An important parameter of wall material is water vapor permeability. Inappropriate indor air relative humidity and the temperature of the wall sur(..)

LABORATORY TESTS OF OLD REINFORCED CONCRETE PRECAST BRIDGE BEAMS

Szymon DAWCZYŃSKI/ Janusz BROL

Every year all over the world many concrete structures are being disassembled for various reasons. The idea of reuse of whole structural members from disassembled or renovated structures is not a new problem but still it is not well recognized. In Department of Structural Engineering of Silesian University of Technology a wide research program was undertaken concerning acquisition and reuse of steel members [1], RC and PC members [2], [3], [4] and timber ones [5], [6]. Especially reinforced conc(..)

THE ANALYSIS OF THE DIRECT FOUNDATION WITH ENERGY FOUNDATIONS ON THE BASIS OF THE OFFICE BUILDING “A4 BUSINESS PARK” IN KATOWICE AT FRANCUSKA STREET

Małgorzata JASTRZĘBSKA/ Barbara WAWRZYŃCZYK

Resources of geothermal energy range from the shallow ground to hot water and hot rock were found a few kilometres beneath the Earth's surface, and down even deeper to the extremely high temperatures of molten rock called magma. The paper shows the analysis of the public building foundation with the usage of shallow geothermal system (closed loop systems using the vertical energy piles). In the soil and groundwater conditions the change of the way of public building foundation was suggested from(..)

PREVENTING IRREGULARITY EFFECTS OF INFILLS THROUGH MODIFYING ARCHITECTURAL DRAWINGS

Azadeh NOORIFARD/ Mohammad Reza TABESHPOUR/ Fatemeh Mehdizadeh SARADJ

Experiences of past earthquakes show that some designed and constructed buildings by engineers have been damaged during earthquakes because of negative effects of infill walls. The main aim of this paper is to prevent the amount of overall detrimental effects of infill walls such as torsion and soft story in a conventional residential building based on seismic codes of some countries and to use the maximum potential of walls. The results show that building in construction condition may suffer to(..)

THE IMPACT OF POLYMER RAW MATERIALS FROM THE RECYCLING PROCESS ON THE STRENGTH OF CONNECTORS IN NON STRUCTURAL APPLICATIONS

Artur NOWOŚWIAT/ Przemysław KNAP

Waste materials have become a serious problem in many branches of industry, including also civil engineering. The amount of waste generated in civil engineering is still growing, and therefore, the application of recycling in the construction industry is highly justified. In the present paper we demonstrate the effects resulting from the application of polymer raw materials from the recycling process. It particularly involves the recycling of raw materials from polypropylene applied in the produ(..)

THE USE OF CHITOSAN FOR REMOVING SELECTED POLLUTANTS FROM WATER AND WASTEWATER – SHORT REVIEW

Krzysztof BARBUSIŃSKI/ Szymon SALWICZEK/ Agnieszka PASZEWSKA

Chitosan is a natural product derived from chitin, which is mostly found in exo-skeletons of shrimp, crab and lobster shells. This paper presents a short review of the literature regarding the use of chitosan and its modifications for removing selected pollutants from water and wastewater. In particular, the examples of removal of metal ions, dyes, anions and phenols were described. Furthermore, the possibility of the use of chitosan as a coagulant and flocculant in water and wastewater technolo(..)
