Ecological Factors Regarding to the Site Selection and Architectural Design of Parking Garages

European Journal of Technology and Design, 2017, 5(1): 4-13.
DOI: 10.13187/ejtd.2017.1.4CrossRef

In the process of spatial planning there are the inevitable urban zones with the commercial public buildings, as one of the segments of the overall development of the city. They represent certain mandatory fulfilment for the functional urban design categories. However, actually, what happens to the environment? Urban actions should be preserved and limited in terms of the environmental impact. The aim and objective of this paper is to address dimensions that relate to the parking garages in relation to air quality, and health impact according to the actual site location and distance of open public parking garage to the communities. The research methods consist of empirical observation through urban zones of Prishtina, with an accent to the future structures of the parking garages in the city. Hence, the same architectural design strategy cannot respond to all specific problems faced by contemporary urban issues. The current degraded state of environment as a whole “Umwelt”, requires specific responsibilities and activities, exclusively when the environmental condition is directly linked to the quality of life and public health. Based on the conceptual results of air pollution and ecological concepts for parking garages presented in this paper, site locations for the parking garages of Prishtina must fundamentally accompany ecological patterns for the healthier communities in coming decades.

Aloft Metabolism: A Juncture of Architecture Future Design

European Journal of Technology and Design, 2017, 5(1): 14-19.
DOI: 10.13187/ejtd.2017.1.14CrossRef

The Metabolism architectural concept, with its fundamental architectural and urban ideas has attracted the attention of wide architectural communities to Japan art development in the 1960-1970s. Nowadays, in 2010 more than half population live in modern cities, and by 2050, 7 out of every 10 people will live in urban areas. The study presented in this paper, has conceptually researched: architecture metabolism design models of future cities with its proportions and design concepts, mainly focussing on urban form and functional structures. This research, applied an empirical method through the arranged and combined structural models, furthermore, strengthened with handmade models in architectural studio as a research comparable volumes. The models were investigated thru comparative method, and researched mainly through literature review, especially studying structural interrelations of the: forms, position, proportions, and volume transformations thru time intervals. Global and wide actions are irreplaceable and crucially necessary to maintain the public health conditions in appropriate scale of modern cities. The current state of cities, requires specific municipal’s responsibilities in situations when we are facing potentially hazards of public health. According to the conceptual conclusions of this study, we much prefer spatial patterns where the urban zones are more concentrated with high-rise structures, although preserving the land use for vegetation. Hence, we further argue that in ‘verticality’ the high-rise structures can be considered and environmentally treated as vertical farm ‘green’ mega cities. Urban planning issues, regarding to the: air pollution, climate changes, and public health hazards, fundamentally requires a holistic integrated environmental action. Global measures, as an environmental healing strategies!

Interactive Architecture: Development and Implementation into the Built Environment

European Journal of Technology and Design, 2017, 5(1): 20-25.
DOI: 10.13187/ejtd.2017.1.20CrossRef

The article explores Interactive Architecture as a new trend in design, based on communication of user and space, the ability of space to respond in real time and to accommodate different and changing needs of users in a more effective way, creating continuous relationship between society and built environment. It describes the emergence and development of interactive architecture, evolving through time, philosophy behind it and ways of implementation in the built environment, studying realized projects and means and tools required to obtain specific structural performance. This article considers various types of interactive behavior, kinetic abilities and classification of systems, ensuring the responsiveness of interactive architecture. It shows a new approach to construction techniques and interdisciplinary collaboration of different fields, explaining why is it important to consider new trends and introduce embedded computation into structure on the early stages of design process in order to obtain the most effective spatial performance, ensured by abilities of interactive design.

Design Principles of Multifunctional Microreactors for Hydrogen Production via Ammonia Decomposition

European Journal of Technology and Design, 2017, 5(1): 26-36.
DOI: 10.13187/ejtd.2017.1.26CrossRef

Aiming at developing general design guidelines of integrated multifunctional microreactors, ammonia decomposition thermally coupled with methane catalytic combustion in catalytic microreactors for hydrogen production was studied numerically. The effect of flow configuration on the operation characteristics was studied, using a two-dimensional computational fluid dynamics model. Different performance measures were evaluated to assess the operability of the reactor. It was shown that complete conversion of ammonia can be obtained in both flow configurations. A proper balance of the flow rates of the decomposition and combustion streams is crucial in achieving this. For a given flow rate of combustible mixture, material stability determines the lower power limit, whereas the maximum power generated is determined by extinction at large decomposition stream flow rates. The two flow configurations were contrasted based on multiple performance criteria. They were found to be practically equivalent for highly conductive materials. Using properly balanced flow rates, the co-current flow configuration expands the operating regime to low and moderate thermal conductivity materials as compared to the counter-current flow configuration that exhibits a slightly superior performance but in a rather narrow operating regime of highly conductive materials and high ammonia flow rates.

Informational Structural Modeling

European Journal of Technology and Design, 2017, 5(1): 37-42.
DOI: 10.13187/ejtd.2017.1.37CrossRef

This article describes a new approach to the structural modeling of empirical data. This approach is based on the information structural modeling. Data modeling is a general structural view of deterministic and statistical structural modeling. News structural modeling based on the use of information of the situation, construction information and information units. News structural modeling allows you to build linear and non-linear structure, including the structure of systems with feedback. The article shows the relationship of information as the basis for the construction of structures of phenomena or objects.
