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.

Abstract

Identification of online hate is the prime concern for natural language processing researchers; social media has augmented this menace by providing a virtual platform for online harassment. This study identifies online harassment using the trolling aggression and cyber-bullying dataset from shared tasks workshop. This work concentrates on extreme pre-processing and ensemble approach for model building; this study also considers the existing algorithms like the random forest, logistic regression, multinomial Naïve Bayes. Logistic regression proves to be more efficient with the highest accuracy of 57.91%. Ensemble bidirectional encoder representation from transformers showed promising results with 62% precision, which is better than most existing models.

Abstract

Timber is a widely used material in construction. The moisture content has a significant impact on the mechanical and physical properties of it. This paper studies how the moisture content values are directly connected to the climate conditions, especially temperature and relative humidity, by measuring these factors for a non-renovated historical timber roof for a one-year period, combined with meteorological data for Pécs since 1901. The fluctuation in moisture content values created instability in the water content of the structural elements due to absorption and release of water in order to reach the equivalent moisture content point. This process led to continuous volume increase-decrease of the timber, thus to formation of cracks, discoloration and harmful fungi development.

Abstract

The research simulates the precipitation-runoff process in an urbanized area. The Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, the Faculty of Civil Engineering, is chosen as the locality of interest. The construction of a mathematical model of the area of interest and the existing sewer network was used the storm-water management model software. The rain type was stimulated by the block type of rain and real precipitation events. The study results showed that some parts of the existing sewer network are overloaded already during a lower intensity rain event. Based on the results achieved in the future, it is considered with the proposal of measures for rainwater management.

Abstract

The comparison of Mono and Multi Repository structures is a highly debated topic in the software development field. Despite the choice of repository structure is the first main step in development; so far, this comparison has only been made on a small or local scale. Here, Mono and Multi Repository structures have been compared from different aspects using thousands of projects.

First, an algorithm shared for collecting and identifying Mono and Multi Repository projects and save them into the database. Database was used for making different comparisons for example the usage intensity of both structure types over time, the developer's preference over structure type based on their country and so on. Also, all these comparisons have been made according to the team size and development period for each repository structure.
