Abstract

With the gradual improvement of urban construction, more and more experts and the public realized that the speed of urban development be reasonable, which caused urban regeneration to turn to a new-minded “urban micro-regeneration”. “Micro-regeneration” is an extension of the concept to the direction of urban construction. The concept of micro-regeneration was first applied to the regeneration of individual buildings in the old city. The research on the intervention of public art in urban micro-regeneration is still in its infancy in China. Based on practice, this paper explores the possibility of public art's intervention in urban micro-regeneration.

Abstract

Dynamical modeling in water supply and treatment and wastewater treatment helps to understand the flow in the networks. Therefore, it is important to incorporate dynamic modeling into the design and assessment processes and operation for the future of urban drainage systems.

The aim of this paper was using a mathematical model to analyze the functionality of combined sewer networks during a precipitation event on 13 October 2020. The analysis was performed based on the results from the assessment of the hydraulic capacity of the sewer network using the MOUSE model in the MIKE URBAN software. This study results that the evaluated sewer network does not fulfill his purpose during heavy rainfall events.

Abstract

This paper represents a noise pollution survey in Durrës city, Albania. There are four survey areas defined: A (central), B (industrial), C (suburban), D (residential + beach) during two intervals times (morning and night).

The equipment used for noise measurement was Testo 816-1 where data were categorized according to levels L eq , L min, L max, and L ave . The contrast of L eq levels versus the standard levels based on the 2002/49/EC Directive showed that L eq levels overcome the limits.

In conclusion, the high equivalent noise level mostly has been during the morning with L eq > 55 dB, which brings serious health concerns to residents near these regions. At night in most of these stations, the equivalent noise levels resulted higher than 45 dB, which is above EU directive and Albanian standards. The survey results will also serve local institutions to manage the situation and to address problems at the governmental level.

Tourism is one of the fastest-growing economic sectors in the world, and any settlement that can harness and promote its potential can benefit from it. It is not only the prerogative of cities but can also make a significant contribution to the survival and development of smaller settlements.

The development of tourism in a given area is not a sudden, rapid process, but usually takes place over several decades, through cyclical phases. Our research is based on the different hypothetical models of the stages of tourism developed by Noronha (1977) and , the applicability of which was examined in rural areas through the example of the Inner-Őrség. Nowadays Őrség (Guard’s Country) is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Hungary, where the small settlements of the area have built on their natural, architectural and cultural assets and they have been able to exploit their potential by using the right marketing techniques. The villages of the Inner-Őrség have developed at different rates since their discovery as tourist destinations, and depending on their role in the settlement network, their accessibility and tourist values, the different phases of tourism development took place at different speeds in their territory. Therefore, the intensity and impact of tourism varies in each village despite the strong interaction between them.

In the present study, we seek to identify the trends and characteristics of the development of tourism in the examined area by using the results of the available statistical data, in order to obtain a more accurate picture of the role of tourism in the settlements concerned.

Abstract

Ancient city is an important carrier of urban historical landscape development, with the development of urbanization, the protection and development of ancient city landscape has become a hot topic. Taking Taierzhuang ancient city in Shandong province and Quanzhou ancient city in Fujian province as investigated examples. This paper discusses the different characteristics and problems of the derivation landscape reproduction and “airborne” landscape reproduction. It further discusses the necessity of historical landscape reproduction and the complexity of landscape reproduction.

Abstract

The task scheduling is to map and arrange the execution of tasks on resources to optimize one or more efficient criteria. This paper tries to provide an improved model for scheduling workflow tasks of the cloud, which simultaneously considers three aspects of optimizing: makespan time, resource utilization, and scheduling length ratio. The model combines the non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm and the harmony search approach to achieve these goals. Harmony search algorithm attempts to perform a local search around the best solutions in each repetition of the algorithm to prevent it from getting stuck in the local optimal. The results on the four Cybershake, Epigenomics, Inspiral, and Montage datasets depict that the suggested algorithm is more efficient for all three criteria.
