Very low seismicity areas in Slovakia and comparison of seismic risk in Central European Countries

Very low seismicity areas in Slovakia and comparison of seismic risk in Central European Countries

A parametric study concerning the importance of very low seismicity for Slovakia is introduced. Analyses were performed for ordinary buildings such as family houses, residential brick buildings, residential panel buildings and high-rise buildings. Both horizontal wind and seismic actions were analysed and compared in detail for all the regions and conditions in Slovakia.

Trends in Rapid Prototyping and Smart Engineering for Central Europe Based on the 3DCentral Project

Abstract

The article presents the main trends in Rapid Prototyping and Smart Engineering. The potential of Central European regions was demonstrated and characterized on the mentioned basis of which e-learning trainings were developed. Based on the implemented international project “3DCentral – Catalyzing Smart Engineering and Rapid Prototyping”, selected conclusions from the implementation of the training program are presented.

The Idea of an Innovated Concept of the Košice Geothermal Project

Abstract

Slovakia has very limited amounts of fossil resources. However, it has a relatively high potential of geothermal energy which use is far below its possibilities. The most abundant geothermal resource, not only in Slovakia but throughout the central Europe, is Košice basin. Since the publication of the first ideas about the ambitious goal to exploit the geothermal potential of this site, 20 years has passed and three geothermal wells has been made but without any progress. In the article the authors present the idea of a fundamental change in the approach to improve the energy and economic efficiency of the project.

Market value of the view restriction

Abstract

Based on the international literature, the effect of an existing panoramic view on the market value of properties is positive and significant. This value-adding factor varies by location and by type of view. In Central Europe, no such evaluation study has been elaborated until now. New building construction may restrict the existing panorama, and this is the other side of the same phenomenon. View restriction may result in stigmatization, which is a negative effect on the property. There are two major methodologies to observe the effect: revealed preference method (RPM) and stated preference method (SPM). One SPM approach is contingent valuation (CV), wherein well-informed stakeholders give their opinion about the impact caused by the investigated effect. The CV methodology, using the Delphi approach, was employed to observe the market value decrease in the cases of several restricted panorama situations in Budapest. Based on the research, this effect in Budapest is in line with the published western results. The result of the study can be used to support real estate developers and architects in their development decisions. This is an extended version of the article titled “The impact of view-restriction: a Delphi case study from Budapest”, presented at Creative Construction Conference 2018, CCC 2017, 30 June to 3 July 2018, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The Influence of Selected External Factors on Temperature of Photovoltaic Modules

Abstract

The article deals with the impact of selected external factors on the temperature of photovoltaic module surfaces. Primary aim of this research is creation of temperature model for photovoltaic module, which would be usable under the real climatic conditions in Central Europe region. Fully autonomous measuring system was designed and created for temperature monitoring of different parts of photovoltaic modules. The measuring system consists of 24 temperature sensors, voltage inverter, control unit, transfer modules, receiver modules and temperature measuring module. The experiments were performed on photovoltaic modules installed on the roof of the University of Life Sciences in Prague during summer 2018. The temperature of photovoltaic modules significantly depends on the climatic conditions, which were monitored by the weather station. The temperature and the solar radiation dependencies for polycrystalline and monocrystalline photovoltaic modules were obtained in experiments conducted. The temperature relations were measured for different parts of photovoltaic module – active parts of photovoltaic module, frame, non-active parts of photovoltaic module, as well as ambient temperature. Final mathematical description of polynomial graphical dependencies was obtained after application of fitting procedure and regression analysis.
