Solar and Green Building Guidelines for Hot Arid Climate in India

Abstract

There are, presently, two schools of thought when it comes to designing buildings that promote sustainable development. One school emphasizes materials use and ‘‘green’’ buildings, while the other emphasizes energy use and energy efficient buildings. The promoters of ‘‘green’’ buildings often claim that the reduced energy use during operation of the low energy and solar buildings is counteracted by the increased embodied energy in these buildings. This paper gives categorical analysis of the technologies available for Low energy and green architecture and emphasizes the need to integrate both in residential buildings to of lower the energy use in operation during the lifetime in a residential building in hot arid climate. The results also show that there should be little difference between the approaches of the two schools of thought. The best buildings will generally be those that are both low energy, and ‘‘green’’. This paper also gives policy guidelines to integrate them in the building bye-laws for hot arid climate

Longitudinally Invariant Elastic Structures Analyzed by the Meshless Mlpg Method Using 2.5D Approach

Abstract

This paper presents a general 2.5D meshless MLPG methodology for the computation of the elastic response of longitudinally invariant structure subjected to the incident wave field. A numerical frequency domain model is established using the Fourier transform in time and longitudinal coordinate domains. This allows for significant reduction of computational effort required. In the MLPG method the Moving-Least Squares (MLS) scheme is employed for the approximation of the spatial variation of displacement field. No finite elements are required for the approximation or integration of unknowns. A small circular subdomain is introduced around each nodal point in the analyzed domain. Local integral equations derived from the governing equations are specified on these subdomains. Continuously non-homogeneous material properties are varying in the cross-section of the analyzed structure. A simple patch test is introduced to assess the accuracy and the convergence of developed numerical model. At the end of the paper, numerical examples illustrate the applicability of the proposed numerical formulation.

A DFT study of the effects of Sc doping on electronic and optical properties of CdS nanoparticles

Abstract

In the present work a systematic study was carried out to understand the influence of Sc doping on electronic and optical properties of CdS nanoparticles. The geometry optimization and symmetry computation for CdS and Sc doped CdS nanoparticles using Density Functional Theory (DFT) on B3LYP level with the QZ4P for Cd and DZ2P for sulphur and Sc were performed by Amsterdam Density Functional (ADF). The results show that HOMO-LUMO gap as well as electronic and optical properties of CdS clusters vary with Sc doping. The HOMO-LUMO gap is affected by the dopant and its value decreases to 0.6 eV. Through considering the numerical integration scheme in the ADF package, we investigated different vibrational modes and our calculated Raman and IR spectra are consistent with the reported result. The calculated IR and Raman peaks of CdS and Sc doped CdS clusters were in the range of 100 to 289 cm−1, 60 cm−1 to 350 cm−1 and 99 cm−1 to 282 cm−1, 60 cm−1 to 350 cm−1, respectively, which was also confirmed by experiment as well as a blue shift occurrence. Subsequently, for deeper research of pure and doped CdS clusters, their absorption spectra were calculated using time-dependent DFT method.
