MAN-MADE LANDFORMS IN LANDSCAPE DESIGN OF TERRITORIES AS A MEANS OF SOLVING ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS

Iryna BONDARENKO/ Natalia KOKHAN/ Olena GONCHAR/ Bohdan BONDARENKO

Abstract The paper is devoted to the role of man-made landforms in landscape design as a means of solving a range of environmental problems. This paper gives a characteristic of man-made landforms. The use of artificial forms of relief as a means that allows evoking bright emotions in the viewer is actualized. Such objects as Mill Creek Canyon (USA), Heart of Reeds (Great Britain), Devil’s Lake (USA), Buitenschot (Holland), Landform Ueda (England) and Crawick Multiverse (Scotland), created by fa(..)

PRUITT IGOE VS CITY OF THE FUTURE

Agata GĄSOWSKA-KRAMARZ

Abstract The idea of a modernist housing estate was aimed at determining the development of the current cities of the future. The idea developed throughout modernism gave justification for the statement that housing estates were intended to provide all the comforts to its inhabitants, but did not secure an ideal life. Something that was supposed to be clean and obvious did not come true. Attempts to secure a perfect space for the inhabitants contributed to the idea of a city of the future within(..)

INDICATORS OF THE COMPACT CITY CONCEPT – NECESSARY DATA AND THE POSSIBILITY OF APPLICATION

Karolina OGRODNIK

Abstract The main objective of the study is to analyze the availability of statistical and spatial data necessary to define a set of indicators of a modern compact city model, as well as, to propose a multi-criteria method to determine the importance of individual indicators. An accessible and relatively easy to use set of compact city indicators is a necessary tool, both at the stage of evaluating a unit for a selected concept, as well as, during the implementation of its main postulates. The m(..)

VALENCIAN RECONQUEST CHURCHES. STUDY OF THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL REMAINS FOUND IN THE ALGEMESÍ CAPILLA DE LA COMUNIÓN

J. García SENTAMANS/ I. Fernández PLAZAOLA/ J. V. Ferrandis MONTESINOS/ A. Sáez LANDETE

Abstract The present paper deals with the examination and research to the vestiges of an ancient church discovered in the basement of the Algemesí Communion Chapel, dating back to the beginnings of Christianity in the city. Considering the disposition of the constructive elements and the documented historical facts that date back to the first parish in the 13th century, it was deduced that the remains found were part of a temple with diaphragmatic arches and a woody roof. These facts are the par(..)

ANALYSIS OF WIND CONDITIONS AROUND A BUILDING DEVELOPMENT AS A PART OF ITS FORM DESIGNING PROCESS, A CASE STUDY

Katarzyna ZIELONKO-JUNG

Abstract Aerodynamic phenomena that occurs around building developments exert a significant impact on the quality of climate in cities. Environmental wind engineering is a dynamically developing field of knowledge that offers a chance to study and, in consequence, regulates the air flow around buildings and complexes of building developments. The following paper discusses the issue of wind conditions that may be experienced on pedestrian level. Such conditions should allow for a proper ventilati(..)

THE INTERACTIONS BETWEEN ANTI-FOAMING AND SUPERPLASTICIZING ADMIXTURES AND THEIR CONSEQUENCE FOR PROPERTIES OF SELF-COMPACTING MORTAR AND CONCRETE

Beata ŁAŹNIEWSKA-PIEKARCZYK

Abstract The aim of this paper is to investigate the effects of anti-foaming admixture type (AFA) and time of its introduction on compatibility with two types of PCP-based superplasticizer, air content, rheological parameters, physical adhesion, mechanical strength, microstructure and air-voids size of self-compacting mortar and concrete (SCC). Results reveal that the air content of plastic self-compacting mortars mixture decreases with the implementation of AFA regardless of the time of its int(..)

SELECTED PROBLEMS INVOLVING THE PRESERVATION OF HISTORICAL FRAME BUILDINGS IN SILESIA IN THE CONTEXT OF THEIR FUTURE THERMO-RENEWAL

Agnieszka SZYMANOWSKA-GWIŻDŻ/ Bożena ORLIK-KOŻDOŃ/ Tomasz STEIDL

Abstract The paper discusses the conservation state of selected examples of historical objects preserved in the Silesia Province, having a complex structure with the elements of Prussian wall. They can be found mainly in the so-called company towns created in the late 19th century. The work presents the structural and architectural details characteristic for such objects, with the emphasis on different technical condition of the structural and finishing elements. External envelopes were evaluate(..)

LACK OF ATTENTION TO GEOLOGICAL CONDITIONS INVESTING IN LAND PLOT FOR CONSTRUCTION

Vita URBANAVICIENE/ Sarunas SKUODIS

Abstract Decisions – where and what type of building to build – are very important, determine the quality of life of residents, profitability and returns of companies. Considering of long-term asset acquisition decisions, purchasers or investors seek for proper and worth to invest land plot for construction. In real estate valuation literature usually the list of 7 or 12 factors influencing value and price of land plot is presented and broadly discussed. Certain factors raise property prices and(..)

RECYCLING OF POLYMER WASTE IN THE CONTEXT OF DEVELOPING CIRCULAR ECONOMY

Elena GUBANOVA/ Larisa KUPINETS/ Hanna DEFORZH/ Viktor KOVAL/ Krzysztof GASKA

Abstract The paper deals with the problem of recycling and a review of the problem field of handling polymeric materials is carried out, on the basis of which commonality for the European space of their disposal and recycling problems is shown. Ways of solving them are identified and the leading dynamics of European approaches to waste management compared to national ones are revealed. It is shown that the tempos of formation of polymeric wastes practically coincide with the tempos of their proc(..)

RESEARCH OF SINGLE ROOM DECENTRALIZED HEAT RECOVERY UNIT

Piotr KOPER/ Agnieszka PALMOWSKA/ Agnieszka MYSZKOWSKA

Abstract Mechanical ventilation systems with heat recovery units are one of the key elements of low energy residential buildings and it has gained increasing interest during the last years. This research presents experimental investigation of the work of the compact recuperator, as a part of the decentralized, single pipe ventilation system, in real conditions. An experimental study was carried out to obtain data for tested unit efficiency calculation, for supply and exhaust mode. The scope of m(..)

ANALYSIS OF THE POSSIBLE APPLICATION OF DEAMMONIFICATION TECHNOLOGY IN THE MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT IN ZABRZE

Grażyna PĘCIAK-FORYŚ/ Krzysztof BARBUSIŃSKI/ Krzysztof FILIPEK

Abstract Due to eutrophication phenomena the modern wastewater plants are obliged to apply highly effective technologies to remove nutrient, i.e. nitrogen and phosphorous, substances. The biological methods to remove nitrogen in the processes of nitrification and denitrifications are successfully used in the main technological line (mainstream). It has been observed, however, that in technical design of activated sludge bioreactor the additional ammonia nitrogen load coming from fermented sludge(..)

MODELLING OF THE AIRFLOW IN THE PASSENGER COACH

Izabela SARNA/ Agnieszka PALMOWSKA

Abstract In this paper currents requirements of HVAC designing (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) in railway vehicles have been presented. The data were based on railway standards [1, 2]. The aim of this study was to carry out the numerical calculation of airflow combined with heat exchange in a passenger coach. ANSYS CFX 12.1 software was used to carry out the simulation. Two cases of boundary conditions were considered, the first obtained from design calculations common for ordinary b(..)

NUMERICAL STUDIES ON THE NATURAL SMOKE VENTING OF ATRIA

Karolina ŻYDEK/ Małgorzata KRÓL

Abstract The use of numerical fluid mechanics to model smoke flow in buildings where a fire develops is common. It allows to check the effectiveness of ventilation systems at the design stage. It also gives the opportunity to determine the conditions that will be on escape routes. Numerical analyzes of smoke flow in buildings are most often performed using Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS). The paper presents numerical analyzes performed for the atrium building. The purpose of the calculations was t(..)
