Data for: Global loss of climate connectivity in tropical forests

Rebecca Senior, Jane K. Hill & David P. Edwards
Climate connectivity data supporting the findings of the publication "Global loss of climate connectivity in tropical forests".
The metric 'climate connectivity' describes the physical connectedness of the focal habitat to locations with an analogous climate under projected future climate warming.
Spatial data are provided as ESRI shapefiles and .Rds files (for use in R). They include climate connectivity in the years 2000 and 2012, and also the change in climate connectivity from 2000 to 2012.

CCWI2017: F77 'Model Calibration for Leak Localization, a Real Application'

Gerard Sanz, Jordi Meseguer & Ramon Pérez
The localization of leaks in Water Distribution Networks has a major relevance in terms of environmental and economic efficiency. This localization is generally carried on in situ by human operators using time consuming methods like acoustic loggers. Nevertheless, the automated aid provided to the operators is continuously increasing thanks to the exhaustive use of models. Models that have to be calibrated and updated in order to provide proper help and an improvement in the leak...

EACS 2016 paper - Multi-hazard Mitigation of Building Structures using New Floor Isolation Techniques

Hussam Mahmoud & Akshat Chulahwat
EACS 2016 Paper No. 179
The design of structures has primarily been geared towards addressing the most dominating hazard at the location of interest. Evidence of global warming and the associated extreme climate conditions, however, have increased the probability of a structure being subjected to different types of extreme demands. As a result, the design philosophy of structures is shifting towards a more holistic approach of addressing multiple hazards to ensure adequate performance under different loading...

CCWI2017: F63 'Optimal Control for Water Loss from Water Distribution Network: A Case Study of Beijing'

Qiang Xu, Kuo Liu, Shunping Zhao, Nan Cao, Zhimin Qiang & Weiwei Ben
Water loss control is a key issue for most water supply companies all over the world because of freshwater scarcity and ever-rising water demand. Beijing is one of the cities facing severe water scarcity, so water loss control has been emphasized during the past decades. However, due to the huge size of the water distribution network, there is a great need to optimize the water loss control strategies. The water distribution network of Beijing has...

CCWI2017: F18 'A Dynamic Model for Smart Water Distribution Networks'

Stefan Kaltenbacher, David B. Steffelbauer, Marco Cattani, Martin Horn, Daniela Fuchs- Hanusch & Kay Römer
While background leakages accounting for substantial water losses in supply networks remain unde- tectable, human reaction to even visible pipe bursts is insufficiently slow. We lose precious time in which not only water losses but severe damage to the surrounding infrastructure could be prevented. These leakages can often be identified only during the minimum night flow and so repair work is delayed by days, causing intermittent water supply and outages. Increasing costs and the importance...

CCWI2017: F92 'Spectral Propagation of Parameter Uncertainties in Water Distribution Networks'

Mathias Braun, Olivier Piller, Jochen Deuerlein & Iraj Mortazavi
The hydraulic state of a water distribution network is governed by a large number of uncertain parameters. These parameters may be given by uncertain consumer demand, valves states, the value of pipe diameters or the roughness of the pipes. In practice, the influence of parameter variations is important in the decision-making process of water utilities, which emphasizes the need for proper quantification of the resulting uncertainties in head and flow. The central step in uncertainty...

EACS 2016 paper - Seismic response of high-strength steel moment connections used in special moment frames

Cheng-Chih Chen, Chung-Yao Hsueh & Miao Wang
EACS 2016 Paper No. 165This study elucidates experimentally the cyclic behaviour of two moment connection subassemblages using high-strength steel. Due to the high yield ratio of the high-strength steel, the moment connections were designed to characterize widened beam flanges at the column-to-beam interface. The test results indicated that specimens formed a plastic hinge in the beam section away from the column face. Extensive yielding and plastification were observed in the beam section at the intended...

EACS 2016 paper - OPTIMAL DESIGN AND PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION OF EDDY-CURRENT TUNED MASS DAMPERS WITH PERMANENT MAGNETS FOR MULTI-STOREY BUILDINGS

Alvaro Magdaleno, Emiliano Pereira, Javier Castano, Norberto Iban, Ivan M. Dıaz & Antolın Lorenzana
EACS 2016 Paper No. 174 (113)
This work proposes an implementation example of two tuned mass dampers (TDM) on a reduced scale two storey building. The TMD, in which the damping is magnetically adjusted without contact, is a laboratory prototype built in CARTIF (Spain). This TMD consists on a one degree of freedom system formed by a permanent magnet (mass) fixed to a flexible link (elasticity) and an aluminum plate at an adjustable distance to the...

CCWI2017: F123 'Case Study: Improvements to a Real-Time Network Modelling Framework'

S. M. Masud Rana, Paulo José Oliveira, Tian Qin & Dominic L. Boccelli
Short-term water demand forecasts are valuable for distribution system operators controlling the production, storage and delivery of drinking water. In certain problems, such as real-time pump scheduling, the cycle of data acquisition, model computation, and decision-making is time-sensitive, and requires an automatic procedure to handle the transfer of information between data source(s), forecasting model(s), and the operator. Recent development of a composite demand-hydraulic model integrates a demand time series model with a hydraulic network model...
