MORPHOLOGY OF SERRATED GLASS FACADES. REPETITIVE AND NON-REPETITIVE SERRATION. SINGLE AND DOUBLE SERRATED FACADES

Marcin BRZEZICKI

Abstract Serrated building envelopes are a very eye-catching element of contemporary architecture. This type of façade in plan resembles the edges of a serrated blade, hence the name. Serrated facades substantially influence the building’s tectonics understood as the relationship between the structural and the artistic form. They also have a major impact both on building physics (increased surface of heat exchange compared to flat facades, solar avoidance – decreased solar gains if properly desi(..)

THE NEW URBANIST PRINCIPLE OF QUALITY OF LIFE FOR URBAN REGENERATION

Monika Maria CYSEK-PAWLAK

Abstract Quality of life (QOL) is a crucial but complex concept, determined by the insights of multiple disciplines. This paper applies the holistic approach to planning known as New Urbanism (NU) to the analysis of QOL, and argues that this movement should no longer be thought of simply as dedicated to halting urban sprawl, but also as providing guiding principles for the process of urban regeneration within the city. The study therefore aims to verify the relationship between NU principles and(..)

SPACE FOR UNIVERSITY STUDENTS: SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS FOR “SELF-LEARNING” ENVIRONMENT – THEORETICAL APPROACH

Angelika LASIEWICZ-SYCH

Abstract The paper presents a humanistic approach in investigation of people-environment relations within university buildings. Architecture of the university buildings is considered to be a learning environment from the position of “critical pedagogy of place”. It emphasizes the importance of the place itself expressed by the specific link between building and its location understood mainly in environmental terms – not only as a functional node but also as a vital element of cultural and also n(..)

STUDENTS’ ASSESMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS IN UNIVERSITY BUILDINGS – THE RESEARCH REPORT

Angelika LASIEWICZ-SYCH

Abstract The paper presents the results of research aimed at preliminary analysis of the students’ assessment of environmental conditions in selected university buildings in Poland. The study was conducted using questionnaires designed for this study. The questionnaire-based interviews were conducted in five university buildings in a few academic centres; the respondents were students attending classes in the buildings (N = 184) under study. The data were analysed both quantitatively and qualita(..)

21ST CENTURY THEATER – REGRESS OR PROGRESS?

Piotr OBRACAJ

Abstract Theater as such is mostly defined through a relationship between play and observation. Such interplay results in a final product with either lasting or fleeting spatial form, and such spatial form ensues from a broadly understood function it is meant to fulfill. Therefore, the aesthetics of stage objects will involve the shape of the building as well as the stage pictures that are created in it and in its factual or significative proximity. To put it in simple terms, present-day global (..)

STRUCTURAL HEALTH MONITORING SYSTEM OF A CONCRETE CABLE-STAYED BRIDGE

Jan BILISZCZUK/ Paweł HAWRYSZKÓW/ Marco TEICHGRAEBER

Abstract In this paper a system of the Rędziński bridge will be described. The Rędziński bridge is the biggest object along the A8 motorway around the city of Wrocław and the biggest concrete cable-stayed bridge in Poland. For the purposes of the bridge monitoring a system of 222 sensors was installed. Results from the first 5 years of work of the SHM will be presented below.

TESTS OF JOINTS IN AAC MASONRY WALLS

Iwona GALMAN/ Radosław JASIŃSKI

Abstract The paper presents the results of the Authors’ tests on the joints in AAC masonry walls. The shape of the tested element and the test stand were fitted innovatively based on the Authors’ own experience as well as on the literature overview and numerical analysis. Cracking morphology and mode of failure were investigated. The relationship between the load and displacement for different types of joins was compared. The obtained results were also compared to the results obtained on the ref(..)

ANALYSIS OF CONCRETE CORROSION OF MANHOLE LOCATED NEAR SOURCE OF ODOROUS EMISSION

Bożena GIL/ Barbara SŁOMKA-SŁUPIK/ Katarzyna KOWALSKA/ Karol JASIŃSKI

Abstract The problem of corrosion of sanitary sewer concrete concerns the elements located just behind the expansion well. Evolving odorogenic substances and bioaerosols spread in the sewage system, cause in adverse conditions both chemical and biological corrosion of concrete. The paper presents the results of tests of samples taken from the top concrete circle and from a corroded cast iron hatch of 7 years old manhole located below the expansion well. Well elements were subjected to a strong i(..)

EFFECTS OF STAIRCASE ON THE SEISMIC BEHAVIOR OF RC MOMENT FRAME BUILDINGS

Azadeh NOORIFARD/ Mohammad Reza TABESHPOUR

Abstract Staircase has a potential to change the seismic behavior of structures, but it is often neglected during design. In this research, effects of staircase in 5 groups including 27 models have been studied. Results show that staircase constructed with the use of RC slab, performs as a K-shaped bracing in longitudinal direction and as an inclined shear wall in transverse direction, so in both directions structural stiffness increases, period and lateral displacement of structure decrease, bu(..)

IMPACT OF ENVELOPE STRUCTURE ON THE SOLUTIONS OF THERMAL INSULATION FROM THE INSIDE

Bożena ORLIK-KOŻDOŃ/ Agnieszka SZYMANOWSKA-GWIŻDŻ

Abstract The article presents chosen issues related to the heat insulation of complex structure walls. Subjects covered in this study are building partitions that had been constructed in the so called “Prussian wall” technique and are located in the Upper Silesia region. Their technical condition as well as usable state are not satisfactory, especially in the light of thermal protection. One way of increasing their standard is insulating partitions. In case of historical monuments or rich archit(..)

A GIS BASED GRAPH ORIENTED ALGORITHMIC MODEL FOR POLY-OPTIMIZATION OF WASTE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Krzysztof GASKA/ Agnieszka GENEROWICZ/ Izabela ZIMOCH/ Józef CIUŁA/ Dariusz SIEDLARZ

Abstract The article presents an integrated (inferential) system of computer assistance in waste management designed in component-based technology. The system allows for the implementation of individual elements (system components) with native and managed programming languages and performance technologies, ensuring easy integration of those components into one coherent, cooperating whole. One of the key issues involves the placement of the objects, events and conducted spatial (geographical) ana(..)

POSSIBILITIES OF USING POST-CONSUMER WOOD WASTE AS A FUEL IN A CEMENT PLANT

Małgorzata KAJDA-SZCZEŚNIAK/ Tomasz J. JAWORSKI/ Agata WAJDA

Abstract The energetic use of wood waste in cement plants, as well as in the commercial power industry and district heating can bring measurable economic and environmental benefits. The article presents an analysis of the possibility of using selected postconsumer wood waste as an alternative fuel. For this purpose, a series of tests were carried out to determine the physicochemical properties of the waste. The tests confirm the usefulness of post-consumer wood waste in cement plants as a separa(..)

PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF SEWAGE MANAGEMENT IN SOKÓLSKI DISTRICT

Iwona SKOCZKO/ Katarzyna OSZCZAPIŃSKA

Abstract Rural areas, similar with the amount of produced sewage to urban areas, are rarely parts of agglomerations. Because of dispersed buildings and often poor infrastructure, sewage management regulation in rural areas can be difficult. Caring for the environment include aquatic environment protection. Sewage economy regulations, especially in rural areas, is a key issue in water contaminations counteracting. Often inappropriate sewage disposal and treatment methods choice could cause ecolog(..)
