    The urgent need to reconfigure urban areas to consume fewer resources, generate less pollution, be more resilient to the impacts of extreme events and become more sustainable in general, is widely recognised. To address these issues, requires integrated thinking across a range of urban systems, topics, issues and perspectives that are traditionally considered separately. This book introduces key results from the European Science Foundation funded COST Action TU0902 network that brought together researchers and practitioners involved in urban integrated assessment. Using case studies, theoretical approaches and reporting experience from across Europe this book explores the challenges and opportunities of urban integrated assessment through four perspectives: (i) Quantified integrated assessment modelling; (ii) Climate change adaptation and mitigation; (iii) Green and blue infrastructure; and, (iv) Urban policy and governance. The book closes by outlining priorities for future research and development and presents a generic framework for urban integrated assessment to analyze the potential benefits and trade-off of sustainability policies and interventions.

    This work applies the variational principles of Lagrange and Hamilton to the assessment of numerical methods of linear structural analysis. Different numerical methods are used to simulate the behaviour of three structural configurations and benchmarked in their computation of the Lagrangian action integral over time. According to the principle of energy conservation, the difference at each time step between the kinetic and the strain energies must equal the work done by the external forces. By computing this difference, the degree of accuracy of each combination of numerical methods can be assessed. Moreover, it is often difficult to perceive numerical instabilities due to the inherent complexities of the modelled structures. By means of the proposed procedure, these complexities can be globally controlled and visualized in a straightforward way. The paper presents the variational principles to be considered for the collection and computation of the energy-related parameters (kinetic, strain, dissipative, and external work). It then introduces a systematic framework within which the numerical methods can be compared in a qualitative as well as in a quantitative manner. Finally, a series of numerical experiments is conducted using three simple 2D models subjected to the effect of four different dynamic loadings.

    The goal of this research is to find the most suitable computer simulation software for assessment of urban design performance from physical point of view. Although there are many physical simulation tools available today, there is no one which covers all the needs of urban design. After initial research of available software, we have chosen to assess three applications: ENVI-met, Project Vasari and IES VE-Pro. The assessment is composed from two parts: functionality assessment , which deals with the available features of the application and useability assessment , which deals with the user experience and friendliness. Since different aspects of assessed functionality and useability are not equally important, we have also included pondering mechanism in order to find the most suitable software for specific requirements. C omplete assessment table is available online ( http://tiny.cc/env_app_evaluation ) , so that the reader can modify ponder values so that it can find the application that suits his or her needs best.

    Energy refurbishment of the existing housing stocks main goals are: to decrease fossil fuels consumption, to reduce the CO2 emissions, and to improve indoor environment quality. The main objective of the presented investigation was to evaluate the integrated design strategies applied in refurbishment of the prefabricated residential housing, in order to achieve energy savings accompanied with reduction of CO2 emissions and improvement of households¿ health and comfort. Conducted study led to the preliminary design of energy refurbishment of the existing building, and its conversion to energy efficient building approaching Zero Energy and Zero CO2 emission status, covering minimized loads and energy needs exclusively by renewable energy sources. Building¿s dynamic behavior and energy efficiency have been optimized implementing BPS. Refurbishment encompassed comprehensive optimization of building¿s envelope structure, natural and mixed ventilation, and HVAC system. The implementation of a series of EEI (energy efficiency improvement) measures resulted in significant reduction of buildings energy loads. Locally available solar (BIPV) and groundwater via heat pump operation, as renewable energy sources (RES) have been selected to cover as more as possible of the building¿s residual energy demand. Presented methodology and results of the performed analysis offer an opportunity to extend their application to other building blocks and neighbo rhoods, exploring refurbishment potential results if applied on greater urban scales within the whole city.

    In this study, a simulation - based multi - objective optimization was empl oyed to minimize energy loads, reduce CO 2 emissions and improve occupants’ health and comfort, considering cost - effectiveness of the design approach on two buildings of different typology – high rise and low - rise prefabricated buildings, in New Be l- grade, S erbia. Series of EEI (energy efficiency improvement) measures were impl e- mented, focusing optimization of building’s envelope and structure energy efficie n- cy, natural and mixed ventilation and HVAC systems optimal control, as well as o p- timization of PV inte grated building facade in synergy with the façade structure e n- ergy efficiency optimization. The main goal of the study was to verify the effectiv e- ness of the integrated design technics applied in both cases, by comparative analysis considering building typ ology, which determined the optimal solutions and a d- vantages for each building type. The results identify the certain differences not only in optimization of building’s envelope structure but also in RES integration (BIPV Panels). Building’s dynamic behavi our in Typical Meteor o logical Year of Belgrade has been analysed and optimized by the BPS - Building Performance Simulation .

    The Caribbean is a great holiday destination, along with Europe, Asia and South America. But it is one of the regions that depend more economically on the touristic sector. That is why there is a need to innovate and reinvent the touristic offer constantly. Throughout the years, tendencies and tourism types has changed and developed, adapting to the market and clients expectations. Beach hotel, all inclusive hotel offers, mountain tourism, hiking, ecotourism, city tourism, are some of the types of tourism that we highlight in this region. !owadays, in seeking to expand the offer to the clients, the hotels have included some variations in the services, such as Spas, golf, convention centers, big casinos, etc. The aim of this paper is to list the latest tendencies in hotel design and services in the Caribbean Region, and highlight its progresses in energy efficiency and sustainable design.

    Touristic sector is a most sensitive one in Mediterranean countries like Greece or Spain. Buildings with traditional architecture in touristic places represent an attraction for tourists but to these buildings the integration of renewable energy sources is a difficult aspect. Energy saving in buildings is significant for the energy targets of EC for 2020 and the implementation of Renewable Energy Sources (R.E.S.) in traditional buildings always poses new challenges for designers. In this paper we include analysis for the implementation of R.E.S. respecting traditional building design and atmosphere, which signifies a new constriction, by also an opportunity, seeing the sustainability paradigm in a more general way. Solar thermal collectors, photovoltaic and wind turbines, are visible and need a special care to be also adapted with the architecture of the touristic sites. Currently developed innovative solar energy systems and integration aspects are presented and strategies for a further expansion are discussed.

    Structural engineers significantly rely on the ubiquitous Finite Element Method (FEM) for mod - eling the physical behavior of their designs. How - ever, when it comes to certain types of nonlinearities either geometric, material or loading related (crack - ing, fracture, terrain-structure interaction, large dis - placements, textile structures...), this method pres - ents some limitations that lead to either less accurate models or numerical instabilities. In the recent past, a discipline named Flexible Multibody Dynamics is emerging strongly as a tool for physical simula - tion of phenomena. This involves knowledge from many areas such as linear algebra, calculus, geome - try, classical mechanics or computational geometry in order to deliver methods and tools for the virtual prototyping of complex mechanical systems. For the purpose of structural engineers an introduction in this entangled merge of different disciplines is necessary, also in engineering terms. The benefits associated to the use of these methods are many, as further comprehension of the physical behavior of the designed structures, higher levels of accuracy or the alternative ways of modeling engineering problems that can be achieved through them. The present paper aims to present an introductory sche - ma where most of the numerical methods involved are related and displayed to the average knowledge level of structural designers. It is also intended to give some scope to those who want to start into this fascinating area of research either with engineering background or not.

    L'objectiu de la tesi doctoral (Roset,2006) era descobrir els millors sistemes, procediments i continguts del que hauria d'ésser l'ensenyament de la física en la carrera de arquitectura. Hem fet la hipòtesi de que millorant la relació entre els llenguatges “matemàtic” i “gràfic”, com propis actualment de la física i de l'arquitectura, podrem millorar les dues disciplines. Hem desenvolupat la hipòtesi treballant sobre COM explicarem els conceptes de física als futurs arquitectes i fixant QUINS conceptes explicarem. A continuació, hem inventat un llenguatge gràfic per a representar els conceptes tant físics com arquitectònics així com les relacions entre ells. Després, hem proposat una manera concreta de fer aquestes explicacions tant per una assignatura com per un capítol concret de la mateixa. L'exemple totalment desenvolupat amb el capítol de Confort Tèrmic de l'assignatura Física de Medi Ambient a l'Arquitectura amb els tests realitzats a 29 estudiants durant la seva impartició ha permès confirmar la hipòtesi del treball i extreure unes altres conclusions inicialment no previstes.

    The objective of the doctoral thesis (Roset, 2006) was to discover the best systems, procedures and contents of what should be the teaching of physics within undergraduate architectural studies. The hypothesis was that by improving the relation between the “mathematical” and “graphical” languages, as they currently belong to physics and architecture, it would be possible to improve the two disciplines. The testing of the hypothesis was developed by considering HOW concepts belonging to physics are explained to future architects and deciding WHICH concepts should be explained. A graphical language was then invented to represent concepts belonging to physics as well as to architecture, and indeed the relation between them. Subsequently a concrete way of making these explanations was proposed, for a specific course as well as for a specific subject area thereof. The fully developed example within the subject area of Thermal Comfort in the course “Physics: from the environment to architecture”, was tested on some 29 students participating in the course, enabled the hypothesis and the reaching of a number of conclusions initially unforeseen.
