  • Urban Acupuncture in Historic Environment: Research of Analogues

    • Authors: Aurelija Daugėlaitė, Indrė Gražulevičiūtė - Vileniškė
      Abstract: Today's cities face a variety of development, rehabilitation and preservation challenges. Historical built environment deserves particular attention in this regard. Urban regeneration projects are particularly complex here because of the dense urban fabric and the risk of damage to the heritage values. In order to understand how to overcome these challenges, we explore the concept of urban acupuncture in this research. The urban acupuncture focuses on small, precisely targeted, rapid and usually low-cost changes that positively affect social, ecological, and even economical and physical dimensions of the surrounding environment. The aim of this research was to identify the recent interventions in historic urban environment of Kaunas city (Lithuania) that can be seen as the analogues of urban acupuncture and to evaluate them using the designed set of criteria integrating the characteristics of urban acupuncture, the patterns of socially and ecologically responsible biophilic design and the requirements for preservation and development of historic built environment.

  • Haussmann Structural Floors Repairs and Strengthening Techniques

    • Authors: Rui Silva Cardoso
      Abstract: Haussmann buildings architecture spread throughout the city of Paris. Those buildings were constructed in the 19th century, being now centenarians. However, they present several pathologies which prevent their adequate use, moreover, an update regarding users security, sound, thermal and fire requirements is, among others, urgently needed. Additionally, there is actually, in Paris, an increasing demand for hotel rooms. For those previous reasons, Hausmann buildings are nowadays submitted to heavy operations of use alterations, conservation, and rehabilitation. In this paper, repair and strengthening techniques used in old timber and metallic floors and retaining a great amount of the original structure are introduced. This presentation is the result of several technical visits realized during a heavy rehabilitation operation which take place between 2015 and 2017 in a Haussmann building complex located at La Madeleine and is supported by pieces of information obtained from technical studies ordered in the design stage. The knowledge from this study could be very useful for the development of sustainable rehabilitation and strengthening techniques, aiming to preserve this important building heritage or similar ones existing in other countries.

  • The comparison of a numerical and empirical calculation of thermal
           transmittance of ventilated facade with different heat-conductive
           connections

    • Authors: Aurelija Levinskytė, Raimondas Bliūdžius, Robertas Kapačiūnas
      Abstract: The energy efficient buildings are priority these days. The building energy efficiency requirements are increasing and thicker thermal insulation layer is used for building envelopes in order to achieve these high requirements. Ventilated facades are often used for the construction of public buildings, whose thermal insulating layers are crossed with connections made from various materials. Previously, steel and aluminium connections were used, whose influence on the heat transfer through the construction was high. When increasing the thickness of thermal insulation, the amount of connections should be increased, therefore the heat transfer will increase even more and such connections are no longer suitable for energy efficient buildings. Looking for less heat-conductive materials for connections, it has been observed that different calculation methods give different results of heat transfer, depending on characteristics of materials for thermal insulation and connections. In order to find out the reasons for these differences, calculations of ventilated walls with various connections were carried out. The heat transfer through the wall with connections crossing thermal insulating layer could be calculated in two ways. The first way is simpler and was often used earlier - this is the calculation of the heat transfer coefficient increase depending on type and geometry of connection using the formulas presented in the standards. A more precise calculation method is the calculation of the heat transfer coefficient of wall with connections using two - dimensional and three - dimensional heat transfer modelling computer software (heat flow analyses). The use of these two calculations methods shows the differences of results of the heat transfer through ventilated walls. For both calculations, the fragments of ventilated walls with connections made from aluminium alloy (λ - 160 W/(m∙K)), zinc coated steel (λ - 50 W/(m∙K)), stainless steel (λ - 17 W/(m∙K)) and glass fiber reinforced plastic (λ – 0,23 W/(m∙K)) were created. Calculations have shown that the heat transfer coefficient calculated for walls with zinc coated and stainless steel connections using different methods varies by 29 %, for walls with glass fiber reinforced plastic connections – by 0,4 %, and for walls with aluminium alloy connections - by 130 %. The main aim of this paper is the investigation of reasons of different calculations results according to numerical and empirical calculations methods. When the causes of discrepancies are found, empirical formulas can be corrected.

  • Potential of harvesting rainwater from vertical surfaces

    • Authors: Mantas Dobravalskis, Paulius Spūdys, Juozas Vaičiūnas, Paris Fokaides
      Abstract: The water supply chain is under increasing stress as urbanization and population growth is driving more and more people to move to cities. An increasing amount of city planners are now looking for alternative water resources, rainwater being one of them. There are multiple benefits to on-site water collection, storage and use, as proven by multiple published studies and successful projects around the world; however, rainwater harvesting (RWH) has remained a niche technique, not seen as part of the mainstream. One of the reasons for this is that, traditionally, rainwater has only been collected from rooves and other horizontal surfaces, and then transferred and stored in various subsurface holding tanks. This method of RWH is dated and not very effective. Furthermore, rainwater is one of the purest water sources, but when collected from horizontal surfaces, it gets polluted with particles that have settled on those surfaces. As a result, RWH in this way can be used only for specific purposes. In order to fully utilize this natural resource, to enable the creation of sustainable cities, we must devise a new method for collecting rainwater. One aspect of RWH that has not yet been deeply explored is collecting it from vertical surfaces. Although some abstract studies have already been conducted, concerning water runoff from vertical surfaces, no studies have evaluated the possibility of harvesting and using such water. In this paper, the impacts of different sets of conditions and variables on the performance of RWH systems mounted on vertical surfaces, such as building facades, are compared. In addition, this study aimed to evaluate the potential of such systems to be used in real-world projects around the globe. To accurately measure collected rainwater, an experimental stand was constructed. This stand consisted of a mechanism that allowed the water-collecting surface and its parameters to be changed, whilst also measuring various aspects of the weather and the amount of water that was successfully harvested. The experiments were conducted in both a controlled environment (laboratory) and under real (natural) conditions.The results of this study provide a more accurate evaluation of how vertical RWH systems can be implemented in real-life projects around the globe, and show how natural conditions and the surfaces used can change the effectiveness of RWH.

  • Analysis of the accuracy of different geodesic measurements methods for
           measuring roads

    • Authors: Donatas Rekus, Vilma Kriaučiūnaitė-Neklejonovienė
      Abstract: Roads, railroads and streets are one of the most important infrastructure, so it is very important rightly construct and to make control geodesic pictures of them. In order to qualitatively and effectively carry out the following operations, it is necessary to assess the methods (advantages and disadvantages) used for these works. The work describes the usage of the measureaments devices, their specifications, data analysis and comparision with the most eficient device. Railway tracks require more thorough maintenance and analysis than regular roads for cars. Defects are here noticed and recorded by using special equipment. Construction of railway roads and their exploitation requires optimal accuracy and monitoring of surveying. It is related to maximum allowed speed of trains, the environment, transport and human safety. Their monitoring needs to be improved by applying geodetic devices for surveying. Comparing analogous surveying conducted using EM140 machine with that of geodetic equipment, one can see the advantage of geodetic surveying. Technical gaps in the surveying process, data storage and procession were evaluated as well. It was discovered that maintenance and monitoring works should be pursued more frequently using high accuracy geodetic equipment. The main aim of this article is to evaluate differences of the technological process and control technology by conducting geodetic investigation in railway objects.

  • Analysis of the Criteria for Selecting Heating Systems for Residential
           Buildings in Cold Climate

    • Authors: Eugenijus Perednis, Rokas Valancius, Jurgita Cerneckienė, Laura Stasiuliene, Juozas Vaiciunas
      Abstract: How to choose a heating system for a residential building' That is an important question for builders and owners of the buildings in Lithuania. The heating season in Lithuania starts by October 15th and ends on April 15th. During this period, the average outdoor air temperature is about 0°C. Many of the new single-family buildings in Lithuania are sold not completed as the new owners want to be free in choosing interior materials and engineering equipment. For this reason, many engineering decisions must be taken by the owner of the building, who is usually not a professional in the field of engineering. When choosing a heat source, it is always necessary to distinguish between many "for" and "against" arguments. Every heating option has both advantages and disadvantages. There is also a striking balance: the same heating method can never be either very comfortable and at the same time very cheap. When making a final decision, it is always recommended to compare the ratio of heat to the price and comfort, of course, taking into account energy and fuel price forecasts. The article provides information that helps the building owner to navigate in the field of different engineering solutions that affect the future maintenance costs, efficiency, environmental aspects and comfort level of the building.

  • The stress’s state analysis of carbon fibre reinforced concrete elements
           evaluating the bond influence

    • Authors: Tadas Lisauskas, Mindaugas Augonis, Šarūnas Kelpša
      Abstract: While strengthening structures with thin layered elements an important role is carried out by the bond between separate elements, but there are not any methods which would describe the distribution of shear stress in the contact zone when the concrete works plastically. In this article a single span reinforced concrete beam which is strengthened by CFRP (Carbon fiber reinforced polymer) is analysed and three methods which could describe shear stress through the length of the element are provided. The three compared methods are: finite elements method (FEM), theory of multiple rods and the proposed method of the authors. The results are provided as diagrams and the similarities and differences are discussed. The method that the authors propose is superior to other methods because it describes the plastic work of a concrete which is not possible to evaluate with the method of the multiple rods theory

  • Comparison between modular building technology and traditional
           construction

    • Authors: Julius Endzelis, Mindaugas Daukšys
      Abstract: This article presents a comparison of modular construction technology with traditional construction based on the results of the survey. The aim of the survey was to find out experts opinion about modular construction, the innovative way of building and its advantages and disadvantages compared to traditional building method. The results of the survey showed that modular construction has more pros than cons compared with the traditional construction method and is more economical and saves more time and materials. The most important criteria that demonstrates the clear advantage of modular construction technology is the duration of construction, the quality of work performed, and the safety of work.
