Conference Paper
Eco Solar Transformer Architecture is an innovative smart building solution that crosses mutable forms of artistic expression with forms of technological content. This architectural concept results from the combination of Philosophy + Art + Technology, specially designed for small and medium skyscrapers, can also be applied to existing buildings re...
Conference Paper
This research is based on a previous critical observation, in face of an environmental problem that involves numerous quarries and debris of the marble basin in the anticlinal of Estremoz, Borba and Vila Viçosa, located in Portugal, where there is a huge waste of this raw material. Of the extracted marble stone, only 5% to 25% is used and marketed....

The authors regret to inform that following errors should be corrected: – Table 7: the value in the line “Brick (exterior)” of the column “CM1” should be 99.849 instead of 219.866. – Table 8: the values in the lines “Brick (exterior)” and “Brick (interior)” of the column “Difference (MM1-MM2)” should be 0 instead of −120.037 and −21.418. – Table 11...
Article
Construction materials have distinguished energy consumptions and different emissions of carbon dioxide from fabrication up to application. The processes and the treatments needed to transform the raw materials into the final products, the transport to the construction sites and the techniques used for their application, all contribute to the diffe...

Historic heritage centers, very often, do have to deal with natural disasters - earthquakes, floods, fires - and other produced adversities, resulting from social conflicts, such as vandalism and terrorism that contemporary society is facing. The conditioning characteristics of historic centers, tight urban layouts, architectural barriers, degraded...

Rehabilitation as an alternative to new construction is an expanding market due to a growing cultural awareness for the need to promote conservation actions and rehabilitation of the built heritage. This line of research aims to contribute to a better understanding and characterization of the processes that is involved in rehabilitation works. The...
Conference Paper
In 1755 a violent earthquake in Lisbon destroyed completely down town city and caused the death of about 10000 people. After the earthquake the prime minister of the king Don José, Marquês de Pombal, called the architects and engineers of the kingdom to invent a constructive system that can resist seismic activities. They created a system that nowa...

Preserving and safeguarding the identity and original authenticity are targets to accomplish, in an action of conservation, restoration or rehabilitation of buildings, taking into account that interventions respect the values of compatibility, adaptability and reversibility. Any intervention that takes place in a historic building, will depend on a...
Conference Paper
Structural masonry is the combination of the two different materials, mortar and brick. The association of these two materials results in a specific behaviour, which can be seen as a developing tensile stress in the block and compression in the joint. For this research a mechanical model is constructed, based on discrete finite elements for analysi...

Building materials have different consumption patterns of energy and emissions of carbon dioxide during their production. These differences result from the treatment of the raw materials and the techniques applied to production. Subsequently on an environmental classification one wonders what kind of constructive solution becomes more benevolent to...

Palavras-Chave: alvenaria, emissões, energia incorporada. Resumo. Os materiais de construção têm na sua produção consumos diferentes de energia e emissões diferentes de dióxido, principalmente convertidos em CO 2 equivalente. Estas diferenças resultam do tratamento da matéria-prima e das técnicas aplicadas na produção. Frequentemente, numa avaliaçã...

Palavras-chave: Produto Interno Bruto, Valor Acrescentado Bruto, Custo de Trabalho por Unidade Produzida. Resumo. O sector da construção tem tido um papel significativo na economia nacional, dada a sua extensa utilização no PIB português e o elevado investimento associado ao mesmo. Estas características proporcionam a possibilidade de desenvolver e...
Thesis
Full-text available
Alvenaria estrutural é uma antiga técnica de construção que há já algumas décadas perdeu importância em Portugal. A razão não é bem clara, embora a actividade sísmica em Portugal seja condicionante e, por outro lado, a flexibilidade da construção em betão armado. Noutros países Europeus a alvenaria estrutural, nomeadamente com blocos cerâmicos, con...

Project
To develop a methodology and analyze practical constructive solutions for rehabilitation of buildings to enhance the energetic efficiency of the buildings is the aim of this study. The research is not only considering thermal, acoustical, indoor air and day lighting qualities, but the sustainability of the developed constructive solutions, concerning the main issues, environment, economy and well-being. Construction materials have distinguished energy consumptions in their production and different emissions of carbon dioxide. These differences arise from the nature of the materials, the different treatment of the raw material and also the techniques used in manufacturing, like the use of fossil, thermal or electrical energy. So in an environmental assessment it becomes of essential interest for architects, engineers, owners and users to understand what kind of constructive solution turns to be more beneficial for the environment. As the research is treating rehabilitation, the originality of architecture and materials as well as the technological advancement of construction materials must be considered to find the appropriate solutions. These solutions must be environment friendly in their production, reduce the embodied energy and gas emissions, perform a reasonable durability and lifecycle costs, be economically beneficial for the direct users and the society involved, and generally upgrade the urban quality. These qualities are very well reflected in the cultural plan of the society and encounter their appreciation.
