Abstract

Thermodynamic efficiency is a crucial factor of a power cycle. Most of the studies indicated that efficiency increases with increasing heat source temperature, regardless of heat source type. Although this assumption generally is right, when the heat source temperature is close to the critical temperature, increasing the heat source temperature can decrease efficiency. Therefore, in some cases, the increase in the source temperature, like using improved or more collectors for a solar heat source can have a double negative effect by decreasing efficiency while increasing the installation costs. In this paper, a comparison of the CO2 subcritical cycle and the Trilateral Flash Cycle will be presented to show the potential negative effect of heat source temperature increase.

Abstract

The increasing interest in large-panel building apartment renovation has heightened the need for a method-based examination. This research provides support to owners, investors, designers and habitants during decisions taking. The study covers the requirements, renovation trend, and cost evaluation. These criteria were defined by using general findings as the base of optimal renovations, which allows utilizing the results for wider areas. Renovations can be established to maintain or increase the value of apartments and the success of the investments depending on the optimal planning. The comfort needs, material selection, and the way of budget distribution are the main parameters of successful improvements. The analysis covers common quality renovation possibilities.

Abstract

One of the main problems at the Hričov weir is the scour development in the riverbed just downstream. It is caused of construction the size of the stilling basin was significantly shortened. Flow energy is dissipating just partially. Each flood makes scour close to the foundations of the structure, which potentially endangers its stability. A permanent solution was experimentally investigated in the hydraulic laboratory at the 2D model in a scale of 1:40. Different variants of the secondary stilling basins were designed to minimize creating scours. The investigation and its results are described in this paper.

Abstract

The development of the social economy has led to the reorganization of the original layout structure and spatial functions of the city. Based on the development background of the Petite Ceinture railway space, this article conceives the attribute transformation and activation method of this industrial heritage. The proposed methodology, applied to the leftover spaces in Paris: integrating the biodiversity; softening the boundary; setting up installations. This paper investigates the relationship between the vitality of leftover space and the texture of the cities. It is proposed to try to reconnect the leftover space with the city through a multi-dimensional system corresponding to the diversified space and make good use of its unique location and internal potential.

Abstract

In the frame of a large parametrical study metal built-up columns made from steel and made of aluminum alloy were investigated. The second order theory is used for the analysis of the battened and laced built-up columns under combined compression and bending. The bottom column ends are fixed and the upper ones are free in the case of in-plane buckling. At the column base the translation and the rotation are fixed, at the column top the translation and the rotation are free in the case of in-plane buckling. Translation is fixed and rotation is free at both column ends in out-of plane buckling. The built-up columns are considered as the columns with effective bending and smeared shear stiffness with a local bow imperfection amplitude e 0 = L/500.
