Abstract: The construction of another tall building in the close vicinity of existing building may lead to a modification in its response. Therefore, the wind loads on buildings in realistic environments may be considerably different from these measured on isolated buildings. Neighboring buildings may either decrease or increase the flow-induced forces on a structure, depending mainly on the geometry and arrangement of these buildings, their orientation with respect to the direction of flow and upstream terrain conditions. In this study deals with mean and fluctuating as well as their spectra on a building due to an adjacent building of side ratio 1 for wind direction from 0 to 45 degree and separation distance between two models. Interference effects were presented in the form of interference factors. And experiments were compared to these measured on isolated building.

Abstract: The Open Source Architecture (OSArc) is a new collaborative way to design common and shared areas at an architectural level, but also at an urban and technological level, etc.. It allows you to participate in the design phase both practically, with your technical contributions, and actively, with constructive criticism and intelligent and innovative suggestions. We thought of using this new design paradigm to make the Nuovo CEP project feasible and economically sustainable through the cooperation of both professionals and non-professionals (i.e. inhabitants, students, etc.). Nuovo CEP is a project, which aims to redevelop a suburban neighbourhood and transform it into a mini smart solar city. The OSArc for Nuovo CEP is realized by means of a wiki website where all interested users can register and insert their contributions together with others members of the community. In this paper, we are going to explain the Nuovo CEP project and its objectives, which will be a guideline and an inspiring source for users contributions. Then we will explain the wiki website structure used to implement the platform for the OSArc.

Abstract: In this study, the environmental behavior of major VOCs in ambient air were investigated in urban and suburban areas in Chengdu city in the spring of 2012. VOCs samples were collected by sorbent tubes with TENAX TA, and were analyzed by thermal desorption followed by gas chromatography mass spectrometry. The most abundant VOCs were aromatic hydrocarbons (58.09%), next in order were alkanes(15.28%), esters(11.27%), aldehydes and ketones(7.64%), acids and heterocyclic compounds(3.39%), olefins(2.96%), alcohols(0.84%), amines(0.35%), ethers(0.17%). Alkanes, alkenes, aromatic hydrocarbons, esters and alcohols had the similar diurnal variation, and their concentration peaks appeared in the morning 08-09; ethers, aldehydes and ketones had similar characteristics of diurnal variation, and their concentration peaks occurred in the afternoon 14-15. This paper provided an overview and some useful information for approaching the composition characteristics, concentration levels and variation in ambient air of Chengdu

Abstract: The construction of a tall building in the close vicinity of existing buildings, may lead to a modification in its wind response. Therefore, the wind loads on buildings in realistic environments may be considerably different from those measured on isolated buildings. Neighboring buildings may either decrease or increase the flow-induced forces on a structure, depending mainly on the geometry and arrangement of these buildings and their orientation with respect to the direction of flow and upstream terrain conditions. This paper deals with mean and fluctuating models, as well as their spectra on a building, due to an adjacent building of side ratio 1 for wind direction from 0 to 45 degrees and the separation distance between two models. Interference effects were presented in the form of interference factors, findings were compared to analogous measurements of an isolated building.
