It is not allowed to withdraw from this subject after the registration deadline.

Summary

The two main topics of this multidisciplinary project are: evaluation of the air and noise pollution induced by a high way on an urban residential area and; proposal of innovative, low-cost architectural and civil engineering solutions based on the use of vegetation and advanced materials

Content

 

Air pollution monitoring:

Outdoor

Indoor:

 

           Outdoor and indoor acoustic noise monitoring

The measurements will be taken 24/7 at several locations at different distance from the highway.

 

          Data analysis and interpretation

               The acquired in the previous phase data will be used to evaluate the air and noise pollution levels and compare them with Federal norms. The data will be further analysed to reveal diurnal variations and dependences on: working/non-working days, traffic intensity, and meteorological conditions.

Abatement strategy architectural and engineering solutions

 

Two options for reducing the air pollution and noise will be considered: use of vegetation or/and advanced materials.  Plants absorb and actively react with air pollutants, have the ability to regenerate and specific types have self-cleaning properties. Architectural and engineering solutions such as green barriers, green walls or green zones will be investigated. The use of advanced materials in the architectural and engineering design will be investigated as additional or alternative solution. Materials such as nanomaterials, catalytic-destruction coatings and advanced acoustic isolation materials will be considered as well.
