A theoretical analysis is presented on the dependence of the standard and variational multi-scale Smagorinsky models on the proximity of the LES filter width Delta to the integral length scale of turbulence L on the one hand, and to the Kolmogorov scale eta on the other hand. Moreover modifications of the models are formulated, which respond...

Worldwide, aquatic vegetation is important for the physical and ecological condition of coastal areas. Unfortunately, this vegetation (e.g. seagrasses) is also under pressure due to human activities. Protection and restoration are cumbersome, particularly because the complex relations between vegetation and its environment are not yet well...

Modelling is of substantial use in policy analysis. Since policy analysis tries to facilitate decision making of complex multi-actor problems under uncertain circumstances, it needs to rationalize and simplify reality. This is the major challenge of doing policy analysis and especially modelling. The model as an abstract representation of the...

The aim of this paper is to develop a method for describing urban patter by means of simple mathematical calculations applicable for urban design. Two approaches were used and combined with one another. The first approach was Stephen Marshall’s method for calculating T-junctions and X-junctions seen in relationship with a cul-de-sac and network...

The aim of this paper is twofold. Firstly, it discusses how to analyse entire regions with the help of space syntax. Secondly, it demonstrates how a main route network through and between urban areas can be calculated in Depthmap. For this purpose one can combine angular choice with metrical distance and add various radiuses on top of each other...

In February 2008, FIG submitted the Land Administration Domain Model (LADM) to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). After three meetings with the LADM/ISO19152 Project Team (in Copenhagen, Denmark, May 2008; in Delft, The Netherlands, September 2008; and in Tsukuba, Japan, December 2008) we are now preparing a Committee...

Influencing more environmentally friendly and sustainable behaviour is a current focus of many projects, ranging from government social marketing campaigns, education and tax structures to designers’ work on interactive products, services and environments. There is a wide variety of techniques and methods used—we have identified over 100 design...

The work described in this paper aims at developing the interrelation and overall effects of interaction between a folded plate roof structure and a system of branching column supports. In the context of architectural performance it is of interest to discuss the effects of the material on environmental conditions. The current study is...

Models of unbalanced bidding in unit price contracts (UPC) can be categorised into two types. The first category assists clients in detecting and contractors in optimising skew bidding. More theoretical oriented models of the second type focus on bidding behaviour in order to study market efficiency. These models predict corner solutions, i.e....

GIS integrated 3D modelling is crucial for the city planning and design processes because urban modelling is a tool used in virtual environments, and provides convenience to work. Although, the creation and display of 3D city models for large regions is difficult it is vital for planning and designing safer cities, as well as public places....

Data about building designs and layouts is becoming increasingly more readily available. In the near future, service personal (such as maintenance staff or emergency rescue workers) arriving at a building site will have immediate real-time access to enormous amounts of data relating to structural properties, utilities, materials, temperature,...

Impact of development is a major issue of global environment change. The modelling and projecting of development are essential to the assessment of consequent environmental impacts. Thus, this research was conducted to develop a customised modelling system that integrates the strength of GIS in supporting planning decision making process via...

This article aims to compare the geo-graphic (spatial) objects in 2D (planar objects) proposed by CON.G.O.O. and ISO standards, and the ability of a number of GIS software to handle them. The results achieved so far showed that the actual technical possibilities are not always sufficient to support the complex spatial objects proposed by CON.G.O.O.

A long-lasting barrier protection at damaged sites of coated system can be achieved by means of an active response of the primer. This may be attained through the release of reactive liquids from dispersed containers, the increase of the local mobility of the polymeric network, or the expansion of (dispersed elements in) the primer [1]. Such...

Research in support of indoor mapping and modelling (IMM) has been active for over thirty years. This research has come in the form of As-Built surveys, Data structuring, Visualisation techniques, Navigation models and so forth. Much of this research is founded on advancements in photogrammetry, computer vision and image analysis, computer...

This paper presents the application of the open source non-hydrostatic wave-flow model SWASH to propagation of irregular waves in a barred surf zone, and the model results are discussed by comparing against an extensive laboratory data set. This study focus not only on wave transformation in the surf zone, but also on the numerical prediction of...

In practice, drinking water technologists use simplified calculation methods for aquatic chemistry calculations. Recently, the database stimela.dat is developed especially for aquatic chemistry for drinking water treatment processes. The database is used in PHREEQC, the standard in geohydrology for calculating chemical equilibria in groundwater....
