Spatial significance of new municipal engineering structures – the case of Italian eco-incineration plants

Publicado en línea: 21 May 2020
Páginas: 21 - 34

Resumen

Abstract

One of the indications of pro-environmental change is the construction of thermal waste processing plants, which occupy an excessive amount of space and are controversial structures in terms of public perception; however, they also create new potential possibilities for the areas in which they are placed. The objective of this study is to address the issue of the spatial significance of thermal waste processing plants from the points of view of accessibility, location and relations with the urban tissue; their architectural and visual significance within the environments they occupy is also considered. The study covered twelve Italian thermal waste processing plants located in varying spatial, economic and social conditions. The results of field analyses and the conclusions drawn from them can serve when conducting comparative studies of other structures of this type, both in Italy and further afield.

Mechanical properties of polyethylene filled with treated neuburg siliceous earth

Publicado en línea: 21 May 2020
Páginas: 59 - 72

Resumen

Abstract

This paper reports the results of research on the mechanical properties of hDPe-matrix composite filled with three types of neuburg siliceous earth (nse). The hDPe/nse composites are prepared by twin-screw direct extrusion, with the filler content ranging between 0wt% and 60wt%. Thereby, the prepared molded pieces are subjected to tests in order to determine Young’s modulus and tensile strength, impact strength and hardness. The results are thoroughly examined based on the morphological and geometrical features of the applied fillers, such as particle size (2–10 μm) and specific surface (7–9 m2/g). The effect of the chemical properties of the filler surface on its interaction with the matrix and strength is determined. The effects of the chemical activation of the filler surface by vinyl-functional silanes on their strength properties is described, and the variations in interactions on the matrix-filler interface are explained.

The co-combustion of rubber waste with LPG fuel in a fluidised bed reactor

Publicado en línea: 21 May 2020
Páginas: 73 - 85

Resumen

Abstract

This paper presents experimental results relevant to the thermal utilisation of rubber wastes. The investigation employed a laboratory-scale bubbling fluidised bed combustor, (BFBC) running on liquefied petroleum gas with quartz sand as the inert bed material. When rubber samples (tyre fragments) were added, the reactor temperature and flue gas concentrations of CO, VOC, SO2, NOx and HCl were monitored. Tests were performed with bed temperatures of 800-1000°C and two different masses of the bed. It has been found that the emitted quantities of NOx and CO were dependent not only on the sample mass but also on the mass (depth) and temperature of the fluidised bed and dropped whilst the bed depth was increased and its temperature was raised.

Shaping curved steel rod structures

Publicado en línea: 21 May 2020
Páginas: 87 - 98

Resumen

Abstract

The paper addresses the problem of the efficient shaping of curved steel rod structures conducted based on the enneper surface. The proposed parametric design process consists in linking the geometric shaping of grid models with their structural analysis and optimization, which is realized through the application of design tools working in the rhinoceros 3D software. The mechanical performance of lattices covered with glass panels is evaluated and the structures are pre-dimensioned. The presented aesthetic grid shells with good structural characteristics may constitute original coverings. however, the analysis, which targets an early stage of the design, aims at providing design guidelines to facilitate communication between architects and civil engineers.

Epoxy resin coatings modified with waste glass powder for sustainable construction

Publicado en línea: 21 May 2020
Páginas: 99 - 109

Resumen

Abstract

Due to their numerous advantages, epoxy resin coatings are a common way to finish industrial floors. Obtaining coating strength at the level declared by the manufacturer requires preparation of the cement substrate through mechanical treatment, for example, in the form of sandblasting. The next step is the thorough cleaning and vacuuming of the surface and the application of the adhesives. The aim of this research was to improve the strength parameters of a coating in which no adhesive were used. materials which have a potentially positive effect on epoxy resins are mineral additives. This paper presents the results of tests aimed at improving the adhesion between a concrete foundation and an epoxy resin coating modified with waste glass powder obtained from the production of glass microspheres.

Modelling driver behaviour in traffic-calmed areas

Publicado en línea: 21 May 2020
Páginas: 111 - 124

Resumen

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate driver behaviour in order to develop a method for improving micro-and macrosimulation traffic models with a particular focus on traffic calming solutions. Therefore, speed profiles were calculated, a PTv vissim model was created, and an attempt to estimate volume-delay functions was made. Driver behaviour was modelled on the basis of video recordings of traffic in traffic-calmed links. speed profiles were divided into parts where the speed is influenced with the traffic calming and not, and speed distributions were calculated in order to be used in vissim. vissim microsimulation was tested on various traffic volumes, with various traffic compositions, in order to identify the relationship between traffic flow and travel time.
