Abstract

The paper presents selected aspects of dynamic numerical simulations of an orthotropic steel railway bridge loaded by high-speed trains. The model of moving loads was adopted in accordance with the models set out in the applicable standards. The current European code requirements are referred in which the computer calculations of the dynamic response of the structure are the basis for assessing the suitability of the structure to carry high-speed rail traffic ( v > 160 km/h ). In this research the calculations are based on the author's method of generating traffic roads in Abaqus FEM environment. lt is emphasized in the paper that in most commercial FEM codes (including Abaqus), moving loads are not implemented in modules responsible for defining of loads. The author's approach to this issue allowed to obtain results confirming its adequacy. In the longer term, the authors will develop a plan to adapt this algorithm in order to generale traftic loads on bridges discretized as spatial and plane numerical models.

Abstract

Artykuł przedstawia możliwości zastosowania modeli numerycznych i korzyści z tego płynących w projektowaniu systemów konstrukcyjnych budynków wysokich. Zostało to pokazane na przykładach autorskich propozycji kształtowania unikalnych form architektonicznych takich budynków przez zastosowanie nowatorskich układów struktur nośnych opracowanych również przez autora, których postacie są rezultatem odpowiedniego zastosowania formuły konstrukcyjnej struktur przestrzennych. Dla złożonych form systemów konstrukcyjnych zdefi niowano w języku programowania Formian stosowne modele numeryczne, których użycie znacząco usprawnia i przyspiesza proces projektowania oraz wznoszenia obiektów budowlanych. Przedstawiono także nowatorskie propozycje projektowania systemów fundamentowania, które umożliwiają bezpieczne posadowienie obiektów silnie obciążonych na gruntach o niewielkiej nośności oraz na terenach aktywnych sejsmicznie.

Abstract

This study aims to design a novel air cleaning facility which conforms to the current situation in China, and moreover can satisfy our demand on air purification under the condition of poor air quality, as well as discuss the development means of a prototype product. Air conditions in the operating room of a hospital were measured as the research subject of this study. First, a suitable turbulence model and boundary conditions were selected and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software was used to simulate indoor air distribution. The analysis and comparison of the simulation results suggested that increasing the area of air supply outlets and the number of return air inlets would not only increase the area of unidirectional flow region in main flow region, but also avoid an indoor vortex and turbulivity of the operating area. Based on the summary of heat and humidity management methods, the system operation mode and relevant parameter technologies as well as the characteristics of the thermal-humidity load of the operating room were analyzed and compiled. According to the load value and parameters of indoor design obtained after our calculations, the airflow distribution of purifying the air-conditioning system in a clean operating room was designed and checked. The research results suggested that the application of a secondary return air system in the summer could reduce energy consumption and be consistent with the concept of primary humidity control. This study analyzed the feasibility and energy conservation properties of cleaning air-conditioning technology in operating rooms, proposed some solutions to the problem, and performed a feasible simulation, which provides a reference for practical engineering.
