A study into the existence of an Urban Heat Island in Sheffield, UK

With rapid conversion of vegetated, undisturbed land to urban land uses with the process of urbanisation, comes an alteration in the local climate of an area and the formation of an Urban Heat Island (UHI). A substantial amount of previous work has found that the climate of a city differs from the surrounding rural regions, with a big input on the effects of urban geometry. Competing views exist over the exact influence from urban geometry, as well as how large scale weather conditions affect the UHI of a city. This work will aim to establish if Sheffield has a marked UHI, and to distinguish the true influence of the climatic and geometrical factors on the UHI of Sheffield, if it exists.

Development of Seismic Microzonation Maps Using GIS

This book demonstrates how to make seismic hazard maps that consists of ground shaking hazard map, liquefaction hazard map, landslides hazard map, surface faulting hazard map and tsunami hazard map by using Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The maps created through series of analysis of parameters that influence the effects of the earthquake such as seismological data (i.e. peak ground acceleration, fault line), geological data (i.e. rock and soil formation), geotechnical data (i.e. soil type, groundwater distribution and depth), geophysical data (contour), and tsunami data. By doing weighting the parameters that influence the effects of the earthquakes, it will generate maps showing the areas that have an earthquake hazard level, identified as low, medium, or high hazard effects. The resulting maps are very useful for the development of a city, where the settlement is directed to areas that have low hazard effects, and some recommendations have to be taken in designing facilities in high or medium hazard effects. This book is very useful for student of GIS, GIS practitioners, urban planner, or those working in the field of disaster management.
Neural Network Modeling of Seismic Events and Soil-Pile Interaction Neural Network Modeling of Seismic Events and Soil-Pile Interaction Новинка

Neural Network Modeling of Seismic Events and Soil-Pile Interaction

This work aims at predicting the seismic response of soil and pile using artificial neural network (ANN) as a tool of function approximation.The seismic response of soil is a function of characteristics of earthquake source, the distance traversed by seismic waves through the earth body, and the local site geology below the ground surface. In addition, the presence of pile in soil alters the seismic waves and the pile in turn is stressed. Two important phenomena are modeled in this research: (i) the prediction of seismic response of ground surface in terms of peak ground acceleration (PGA), peak ground velocity(PGV), and peak ground displacement(PGD), and (ii) the kinematic response of piles which includes pile bending moments and the foundation input motion to the superstructure.

A comparison of proxies for seismic site conditions

Situated in an active tectonic region, Santiago de Chile, the country?s capital with more than six million inhabitants, faces tremendous earthquake hazard. Macroseismic data for the 1985 Valparaiso and the 2010 Maule events show large variations in the distribution of damage to buildings within short distances indicating strong influence of local sediments and the shape of the sediment-bedrock interface on ground motion. Therefore, a temporary seismic network was installed in the urban area for recording earthquake activity, and a study was carried out aiming to estimate site amplification derived from earthquake data and ambient noise. The analysis of earthquake data shows significant dependence on the local geological structure with regards to amplitude and duration. By inverting the noise spectral rations, local shear wave velocity profiles could be derived, allowing also deeper parts of the basin to be represented in great detail. Using the attained velocity model, simulations of ground motion show that the unfavorable interaction between fault rupture, radiation mechanism, and complex geological conditions considerably increase the level of seismic risk for Santiago de Chile.

Impact of Soil Salinity and Phosphorus Fertility on Wheat Plant

Optimum fertilization management is an important technique to alleviate the adverse effects of salinity stress on plants. An experiment was conducted to evaluate the ameliorative role of inorganic and organic P-sources on wheat grown under salt stress in three soil types deficient in available P. Wheat plants were grown on alluvial, sandy and calcareous soils under salinity levels of 4, 8 and 12 dS/m of saturated paste extract (ECe) and supplied with constant rate of superphosphate (SP), cattle manure (CM) and 1:1 mixture of SP and CM. The results revealed that plants grown on the sandy soil were more susceptible to the adverse effects of salinity compared with that planted on the alluvial one, especially at 0 P. However, plants grown on the calcareous soil were moderately affected. In addition, varying soil type caused significant differences in the aboveground biomass and uptake of N, K, P and Zn in shoots and grains, where maximum values were attained in the alluvial soil followed by calcareous soil. Grains and straw yields and contents of N, P and K in the shoot tissue, grains and straw decreased significantly with increasing ECe from low (4 dS/m) to high level (12 dS/m).

Cost Benefit Analysis of Planned Urban Development Cost Benefit Analysis of Planned Urban Development Новинка

Cost Benefit Analysis of Planned Urban Development

The growth and development is a continuous process of every dynamic society. The population grows, the standard of living increases and so rises the expectations. The rural masses often tend to be influenced by the economic ‘demonstration effect’ and shift to urban areas while the lower middle class or the middle class expands usually on the outer peripheral of the city /town areas. This is a continuous process leading to creation /expansion of newer urban areas. This expansion should be ideally planned, equipped with basic civic/economic amenities namely drainage, sewage, road, market and parks etc. The planned and unplanned areas have different effects on the Cost-Benefit model. The positive effects of planning an area are manifold while leaving an area unplanned or not investing in an area has enormous negative impacts. Interestingly, findings for Indian cities can be replicable in other South Asian Nations namely Pakistan and Bangladesh (due to geographic, demographic and sociological similarities).

Study on outside configurations of building for sustainable urban area

Urban area is the most important space to human society at all times. Population, economy, energy, technology, politic and so on are concentration in urban area all over the world. Thanks to the past successive developments, our lifestyle was definitely improved in all aspects. However, we have been beginning to notice that urban environment has gotten worse for the several past decades. Why? One of the biggest reasons is that almost all of urban areas are covered by impermeable surfaces such as concrete or asphalt by means of reducing green spaces. Because of this, Urban Heat Island, stormwater disaster and reduction in biodiversity have threatened urban dwellers year on year. Thus, it is quite important to restore urban green spaces with ecosystem service. However, there are rarely enough open spaces due to urban densification. This present book aimed to (a) explore methods for restoring urban biodiversity and developing low-energy buildings by means of altering the outside configuration of buildings without any dramatic changes of urban formations and (b) make a proposal to the near future urban planning toward sustainable society with an abundance of ecosystem service.

The Effects of Acute Beetroot Consumption on Intermittent Testing

The following book 'The Effects of Acute Beetroot Consumption on Intermittent Testing' explores the understudied area of the beetroot juice and the effects of nitrates on the bodies performance in an intermittent sporting scenario. Recent studies have found that beetroot juice (BR), a dietary nitrate (NO3 ?), has a positive effect on endurance, cardiovascular efficiency and glucose uptake in the muscles to delay the onset of lactic acid production. Despite previous studies delving into the effects of BR on generic intermittent testing such as the YoYo test, researchers have failed to investigate this dietary NO3- in a sport specific intermittent setting. Therefore this paper investigates the physiological and psychological effects of acute beetroot consumption on intermittent performance, to enable future applications on popular sports such as Football and Rugby that are currently dominating the sporting world.

Facets of An upcoming Urban Industrial Hub

The study is broadly concerned with understanding the development of the industrial hub in the Gurgaon and its impact on the immediate neighborhood. Studies have revealed that with the increase of industrial development the growth pattern changes rapidly, not only the growth of the urban area but the overall economy shifts from more agrarian to non-agrarian, with the change in the occupational pattern of the people, i.e. Tertiarization. This triggers the in- migrations from the rural areas to core urban area in search of the better job opportunities and increased standards of living, which in turn gives way to unplanned growth of the urban fringe. So it becomes increasing necessary for the government institution and policy level intervention to provide an overall socio-economical growth along with rapid industrial growth.

Noise level in urban area

Sound can be music, speech or noise. In urban area the noise generated through various sources is augmented by narrow streets and tall buildings, which produce a canyon in which traffic noise reverberates. Noise influences motor and cognitive behavior and can trigger glandular, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal changes. The ill effects of noise have been well recognized, but people are not aware about the level of noise to which they are exposed and the measures to control noise. Hence, a study was undertaken to find out noise level on selected areas of Vadodara city which is an urban area and its adverse effects on the residents. Level of noise measured on the road gave alarming findings. Noise entering in the house was very high and the homemakers did not know how to control its entry so as to reduce its ill-effects which they face. The research published in the form of present book will prove to be a rich resource material for academicians and researchers concerned with noise pollution and people in general, as, some suggestions are given to reduce noise generation and the measures to control it entering in the house
