QUALITATIVE RESEARCH FOR CHILDREN'S SWIMMING POOL AREAS IN WATERPARKS BASED ON SELECTED POLISH EXAMPLES

Katarzyna KIELAR

The aim of this article is to show different types of design solutions for children swimming pool areas. The research material was developed based on the literature studies and quality research of existing water parks located in Poland. For the purposes of the article a preliminary studies of 31 major facilities were made. Second, three representative examples to study in detail were selected. Next observational studies of user behavior and usage were conducted. At the end the specified methods (..)

SPACE MANAGEMENT AT THE LOCAL LEVEL IN VIEW OF THE CONDITIONS AND PLANNING THEORY ON THE EXAMPLE OF MEDIUM-SIZED CITIES IN THE ŁÓDŹ REGION

Sylwia KRZYSZTOFIK

The planned directions for development in space management within the commune are indicated by, among others, a study and a document drawn up mandatorily for the entire municipal area. The analysis of the study record for the Kutno and Opoczno show that municipalities determine areas for newly urbanized housing sites. The use of new buildings would involve a dramatic increase in local community. The number of the inhabitants is decreasing and these trends are likely to remain. The results of the(..)

BETWEEN ARCHITECTURE AND ART. THE SPACE OF AQUAINTANCE

Małgorzata MIZIA

The article is based on the definition of architecture as an art of shaping space (B. Zevi), comparing it to the art of sculpting, and the concept of sculpting-ness which refers to spatial effects and the creative/artistic character of the designing. The wrapping space of architecture has been treated as a non-material virtual sphere of information exchange. It is a space of mutual communication of: knowledge, skills, art and poly-sensory perception of the recipient. Similar selected phenomena c(..)

MODELLING OF DECISION-MAKING FRAMEWORK FOR SELECTION TECHNOLOGICAL ADEQUACY SYSTEM MEDIA FAÇADES

Jasna ČIKIĆ TOVAROVIĆ/ Jelena IVANOVIĆ ŠEKULARAC/ Nenad ŠEKULARAC

In recent years, media façades have become a new architectural theme and numerous potentials and limitations are observed in their design process and implementation. This paper identifies the most important challenges in the design of a media façade in order to define the basic criteria that influence decision making in the selection or the fulfillment of the most important principle – the adequacy of technological process of a media façade design. The main method used in the paper is mathematic(..)

TRIAXIAL TESTS ON WEAK COHESIVE SOILS – SOME PRACTICAL REMARKS (PART 1)

Magdalena KOWALSKA/ Małgorzata JASTRZĘBSKA

Standard procedures of triaxial testing recommended e.g. in Eurocode 7 are often unsatisfactory in case of weak cohesive soils (soft and very soft clays, clayey soils with organic content, etc.), mainly due to the high deformability of these soils. Forming a specimen from material sampled in situ and installation of the necessary equipment (a membrane, filter paper strips or on-sample sensors, etc.) may be very difficult and can influence the quality of the test results. This paper (part 1/2) pr(..)

TRIAXIAL TESTS ON WEAK COHESIVE SOILS – SOME PRACTICAL REMARKS (PART 2)

Małgorzata JASTRZĘBSKA/ Magdalena KOWALSKA

This paper is a continuation of the paper “Triaxial tests on weak cohesive soils – some practical remarks (part 1)” and concerns the problems related to the preparation of weak cohesive soils for triaxial testing. This part (2/2) presents detailed description and discussion of the issues related to installation of specimen in the apparatus and assembling various accessories before the main test. It is based on the Authors’ own experience and literature review. Some solutions, which make the work(..)

APPLICATION OF HIERARCHICAL ANALYSIS METHOD TO DESIGN THE STRUCTURAL PARTITIONS WITH DIFFERENT MATERIAL AND STRUCTURAL SOLUTIONS FOR WINDOW GLAZING

Artur NOWOŚWIAT/ Monika LESZCZYŃSKA

The aim of this study was to use AHP method to analyze seven types of windows in terms of cost-effectiveness of their designing in building partitions. The analysis referred to price as well as thermal and acoustic insulation for various construction and material solutions of window glazing. Using the analysis it was verified what windows are profitable to be used for various structural solutions in the existing buildings and how the thermal and acoustic coefficient is shaped at given structural(..)

DEFORMATION MONITORING OF THE STEEL CYLINDER OF CZERSKO POLSKIE - A HISTORICAL WEIR IN BYDGOSZCZ

Jacek SZTUBECKI/ Maria MRÓWCZYŃSKA/ Małgorzata SZTUBECKA

Weirs are civil engineering structures designed to dam up the stream of water. They are often very old structures subject to preservation care. In order to maintain the level of ground water, it is essential to keep them in good repair. Therefore, weirs require monitoring of their technical condition and geometry. This article contains an elaboration of the results of measurements of the geometry of a steel cylinder which is a major component of the historical weir Czersko Polskie in Bydgoszcz. (..)

TESTS OF PHYSICOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF FUEL AND BALLAST FRACTIONS FROM WASTE PROCESSING INSTALLATIONS

Monika CZOP/ Małgorzata KAJDA-SZCZEŚNIAK

Economic development of a country as well as growing consumption causes a rise in the amount of wastes, mainly municipal wastes. Basic sources of the municipal wastes are households and public buildings. When Poland joined European Union, it was necessary to introduce many changes related to the waste management. Gradually implemented actions aim at limiting the amounts of municipal wastes deposited in landfills and reducing biodegradable fraction of wastes. Production of fuel from the municipal(..)

NOVEL ANAMMOX MEMBRANE ELECTRO-BIOREACTOR

Maria ELEKTOROWICZ/ Seyedehfatemeh HOSSEINI/ Sharif IBEID

This paper presents an alternative method for nitrogen removal using modified membrane reactor. A novel Anammox submerged membrane electro-bioreactor (Anammox-SMEBR) was developed to enhance nitrogen removal from municipal wastewater. At lab scale a comparison between continuous flow MBE and Anammox-SMEBR reactors was conducted. The novel reactor removed nitrate and ammonia by over 95% and 97%, respectively. The removal was due to subsequent application of aerobic and anoxic conditions in the sa(..)

CHRONOPOTENTIOMETRIC CHARACTERIZATION OF ELECTRODIALYSIS MODULE

Stanisław KOTER/ Çağlar GÜLER/ Izabela KOTER

Classical and chronopotentiometric characterization of the electrodialysis module at the same concentrations of diluate and concentrate was performed. Limiting current was determined from the Cowan-Brown plot, the current efficiency and the mean transport number of counterions – from the concentration changes on the exit of the ED module. The electric resistance was determined from the chronopotentiometric curve. For electric currents higher than the limiting one, the transition time (inflection(..)

THE USE OF HIGH MOISTURE SEWAGE SLUDGE IN THE CHP UNIT INTEGRATED WITH BIOMASS DRYING AND GASIFICATION

Wojciech UCHMAN/ Marcin JOB/ Anna SKOREK-OSIKOWSKA

The paper presents the evaluation of the possibility of the use of a biomass with high moisture content in a cogeneration plant with gas piston engine. The dried sewage sludge-derived syngas is used as a fuel. Sewage sludge are characterized by about 70 wt% of moisture content after the dewatering process. The drying process which is applied as the next step requires great amount of energy. For this reason the thermal integration of the drying process with a piston engine which produce a signifi(..)
