     View Summary

    Indonesian urban population increase has led to increased energy demands and housing inventory shortages. The Ministry of Public Works and Housing (PUPR) supplies collective housing for low-income communities (MBR). The development of low-carbon collective housing has been thought to suppress the abrupt increase in household-sector energy demand and lead to mitigated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In tropical climates, it is essential to reduce the dependence on air conditioners (AC) to suppress energy consumption. Therefore, to investigate the relationship between cooling methods and energy consumption, this study surveyed the energy consumption per household and classified the existing cooling patterns of ACs, fans, and window openings in collective housing with different income groups in Indonesia. The results confirmed that the use of AC increases household energy consumption. Meanwhile, the implementation of natural ventilation (NV) showed significantly lower energy consumption with a high thermal satisfaction of more than 80% during the day and 90% at night; thus, both energy consumption reduction and indoor thermal comfort improvement could be achieved through these methods. The findings of this study serve as a starting point for verifying the energy saving effects of air conditioning habits with the consideration of socio-demographic changes for the purpose of decarbonizing collective housing, including future predictions and energy simulations.

     View Summary

    &nbsp;In recent years, the architectural design process has been becoming more and more complicated due to increase in factors to consider. Therefore, facilitation in the design process is becoming more important to reduce the task and needlessness work. As a tool to facilitate design process, BIM (Building Information Modeling) is the focus of attention recently. But, in spite of the large expectations for BIM's influence of facilitating design work, actual introduction of BIM into the building industry is very few, because of the lack of quantitative evaluation of the effectiveness of BIM. Therefore, in this research, we evaluated the effectiveness of BIM utilization on reducing reworks and improving the design flow by comparing the 7 buildings which designed with BIM and 3 buildings which designed without BIM.<br>&nbsp;As preparation, we organized meeting date and contents in chronological order from minutes information of 10 buildings. And we classified the contents into 113 design work items.<br>&nbsp;The first analysis is the evaluation using a progress chart. It is the graph showing the progress of the design progress degree. The average of the design progress degree in BIM used cases was higher at the early stage of design process than that of the BIM unused cases. So that, it made clear that many design work items are considered from the early stage of the design process in BIM used cases.<br>&nbsp;The second analysis is the evaluation of the study timing of design work items. It is the percentage value expressed as the average timing of the meeting. The study timing in BIM used cases average is 28%, and that of study timing in BIM unused cases average is 39%. which shows that utilization of BIM leads forward the meeting timing. Next, analysis of the study timing of 19 design work group shows that &ldquo;16. Structural performance&rdquo; and &ldquo;19. Estimate and make the book of confirmation request&rdquo; were studied early stage of design process. And, analysis of the study timing of 113 design work items shows that &ldquo;46. Decide the beam size&rdquo;, &ldquo;78. Study the fire protection zone&rdquo;, &ldquo;79. Design the corridors&rdquo;, &ldquo;94. Decide the floor vibration performance&rdquo;, &ldquo;103. Design the window (form/kind)&rdquo; and &ldquo;113. Make the book of construction order&rdquo; were studied early stage of design process.<br>&nbsp;The third analysis is the evaluation of rework. We clarify the type of rework occurred at each meeting. The type is classified as &ldquo;1. Rework by owner's change request&rdquo;, &ldquo;2. Returning by designer's change request&rdquo;, &ldquo;3. Rework by the change of other design work item&rdquo; and &ldquo;4. The other&rdquo;. In this research, the rework frequency of BIM used cases is 28% in average, and that of BIM unused cases is 19% in average. It shows that reworks are increased 9% by BIM using. However, in the interview survey, designer said &ldquo;Utilizing BIM, the cases that have been overlooked in the design stage and become troubles at the construction stage have been discovered and improved at the design stage.&rdquo;.<br>&nbsp;In conclusion, using BIM in the architectural design process is effective in front-loading of design work, but it becomes a factor to increase the rework of design work. However, the number of building in this research is 10, making it difficult to say statistical analysis results. Also, if the increase in the rework at the basic design stage is one that foresaw the trouble at the construction stage and avoided it, verification including implementation design is required.

     View Summary

    &nbsp;This paper aims to determine the most common features of both the layout and the building materials of the single floor house in Khartoum -the capital of Sudan- using different methodologies. The results were then used to create a standard testing model to be utilized by researchers in all fields, especially, researches in the field of energy simulation, environmental design, etc. Google High resolution images were used to determine the layouts by studying the location of the visible roof parapets of each house. Three small neighborhoods were randomly chosen from the three cities of Khartoum state (Khartoum, Bahri, and Omdurman), each neighborhood contained around 350 houses. Additionally, one large neighborhood (about 15000 houses) was selected in an old third-class area in Khartoum state to test the various house layouts, in order to estimate the commonness of a specific uniform layout amongst the other layout patterns. Afterwards, the building materials and space dimensions were determined by surveying a random sample of 96 houses chosen from the large neighborhood. These 96 houses were built in accordance to the uniform pattern layout subject of this research. The results show that the uniform pattern layout is clear in about 39.75% of the total samples, and the common dimensions (length, width and height) of the room, hall, saloon, and the kitchen are (4.4m &times; 4.2m &times; 3.8m), (5.7m &times; 3m &times; 3.2m), (7.4m &times; 3.2m &times; 3.8m), and (4.4m &times; 4.2m &times; 3.8m) respectively. The most used materials are brick for the walls, local materials for the roofs, steel for doors, and steel frame and glass panels for the windows in 88%, 38%, 76%, and 82% of the cases respectively.

     View Summary

    We made a long-term prediction simulator of CO_2 emissions from 1975 to 2050 for Fukuoka City with system dynamics. In this simulator, CO_2 emissions are calculated by multiplying CO_2 emission units with amounts of activities. In our past research, it took many hours to make the model because we manually adjust multiplying functions of the model. Therefore we develop a program to adjust every multiplying function of the model for reducing the simulator making hours. Moreover, we compared actual values and calculated values of the simulator by using multiplying functions that were identified by the program, and did accuracy verification of the program.

     View Summary

    The energy supply in Japan faces challenges after the Great East Japan Earthquake. The electricity consumption and the energy consumption for cooling before and after this earthquake in a high-rise university with BEMS is investigated. Compared with the energy consumption in 2010, about 22% of the electricity consumption and 20% of the energy consumption for cooling is cut down in 2011. According to the hourly data for lighting, electric outlets, cooling systems, the load patterns for different energy consumption are studied. The results show that the load patterns before and after the earthquake are quite similar. Furthermore, the difference of energy consumption for cooling in similar climate conditionings in these two summers is pointed out, which illustrates the effectiveness of energy saving methods adopted. Compared with the contracted electricity demand, 15% of the peak electricity demand is cut down in the summer of 2011.

    South-east Asian countries are now experiencing remarkable economic growth in recent years. In hot and humid countries like Cambodia, air-conditioning equipments are becoming widely accepted. Because of the lack of fundamental data on Cambodian lifestyle and energy consumption, this paper first studies and estimates the amount of energy consumption of Cambodian houses in urban areas by questionnaire method, targeting the families living in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Then the amount of energy consumption of Cambodian houses is estimated by simulation analyses on typical two types of model houses. And the paper simulates many methods to decrease the amount of energy consumption, and proposes the most effective and realistic methods to mitigate the rapid increase of energy consumption in south-east Asian countries.

    This paper compares the effect of energy conservation measures between two buildings on university campus in northern China. The paper also presents for the first time the detailed hourly energy consumption characteristics and composition of such buildings in this area for the year of 2010. Compared in buildings, &lsquo;A&rsquo; is near to the average electricity consumption unit of the investigated buildings while &lsquo;B&rsquo; includes energy conservation measures. Firstly, variation of heating/cooling load and electricity consumption unit has been analyzed. Then averaged electricity consumption unit with different usage like air conditioning system, lighting were examined at different periods. The indices of daily electricity consumption were figured out. Furthermore, energy conservation measures were evaluated to discuss the energy conservation effect.<br>Based on the investigation results, the heating load index per floor area of building B was found to be 40% of building A while the cooling load index per floor area was 30% of A. Air conditioning system accounted for 64.8% in building A and electrical socket accounted for 61.8% in building B of the total electricity consumption. Average daily electricity consumption ratio of building B is 5.1% higher than building A indicating possibility of energy conservation in building A. Finally, from the calculation based on actual data and simulation results, it is worth noting that overall energy consumption in building A can be reduced by 38% and individually heating and cooling loads can be cut down 57.8% and 61.5% respectively.

    This paper presents in depth analysis of the actual energy consumption structure of a science and engineering university campus in southern China. It also clarifies for the first time the hourly energy consumption characteristics of such campus buildings in this area. Firstly, the measurement meters were installed on the power circuits of 11 different buildings in the campus to obtain hourly end-user energy consumption data from Sep.1st 2009 to Aug.31st 2010. Then examination of energy consumption unit according to the different buildings has been analyzed base on the measured data. Furthermore, the energy consumption of buildings with different usages has been evaluated; the analysis was performed for different days and different load periods. Finally, a detail of energy consumption unit was discussed and constructed based on it.<br> From the analysis, variation of daily energy consumption unit structure of different usage buildings and the whole campus is clearly indicated. The energy consumption of the research laboratory buildings accounted for 58% of the whole campus' energy consumption. The average daily energy consumption unit of the library was the highest. Among the proportion of the total energy consumption for the whole campus, the cooling consumption accounted for 52% with 72.18 MJ/(m2&bull;a), electricity consumption of lighting and electrical socket accounted for 23% with 32.01 MJ/(m2&bull;a). The maximum value of hourly average electricity consumption unit for the whole campus in each month was recorded at 12:00 Oct. 2009 with 24.08 kJ/(m2&bull;h) and the maximum value of hourly average cooling consumption unit was recorded at 16:00 Oct. 2009 with 71.14 kJ/(m2&bull;h) respectively. The energy consumption unit in different load period was listed to indicate which building and which period consumed more energy. In particular, this study we aim to find out peak energy unit of the different buildings, in order to make a proposal for energy conservation measures to reduce peak energy amount of the whole campus to the greatest possible extent.

    Journal of Environmental Engineering (Transactions of AIJ)   71 ( 610 ) 67 - 73  2006  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This paper presents the effective operation methods and the regional energy conservation effects of housing Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell Co-Generation System (PEFC-CGS). We built the model-based simulation program to calculate the energy budget in a case that PEFC-CGS was introduced to detached houses considering specifications of a real PEFC-CGS. As a result of model-based simulations, we found that DSS (Daily Start and Stop) operation was the most effective method. Energy conservation effect is higher in cold areas because it varies by quantity of hot water supply load. The primary energy consumptions are reduced by 4-13% and CO_2 emissions are reduced by 7-20% in Japan. These values are increased by 1-2% in a case of the reverse power flow. Utility costs are also reduced by PEFC-CGS, but they vary by payment setting in each area.

    Abstract

    Recently, the increase in energy consumption of commercial building is remarkable, and energy-saving is continuously required. Therefore, the government is promoting high environmental performance building. In this situation DECC (Database for Energy Consumption of Commercial building) committee collected the data of the energy consumption and published them as a database. However, analysis about High environmental Performance Building (HPB) has not been conducted in DECC database. So, I extract HPB from DECC database and analyze the consumption.

    Sustainable Houses and Living in the Hot-Humid Climates of Asia     1 - 559  2018.06  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This book provides information on the latest research findings that are useful in the context of designing sustainable houses and living in rapidly growing Asian cities. The book is composed of seven parts, comprising a total of 50 chapters written by 53 authors from various countries, mainly in the Asian region. Part I introduces vernacular houses in different Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Nepal, China, Thailand and Laos. Parts II and III then explore in depth indoor adaptive thermal comfort and occupants' adaptive behavior, focusing especially on those in hot-humid climates. Part IV presents detailed survey results on household energy consumption in various tropical Asian cities, while Part V analyses the indoor thermal conditions in both traditional houses and modern houses in these countries. Several real-world sustainable housing practices in Asian cities are reviewed in the following part. The final part then discusses the vulnerability of expanding Asian cities to climate change and urban heat island. Today, approximately 35-40% of global energy is consumed in Asia, and this percentage is expected to rise further. Energy consumption has increased, particularly in the residential sector, in line with the rapid rise of the middle class. The majority of growing Asian cities are located in hot and humid climate regions, and as such there is an urgent need for designers to provide healthy and comfortable indoor environments that do not consume non-renewable energy or resources excessively. This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in sustainable house design in the growing cities of Asia.

     View Summary

    Changes of the energy consumption in welfare facilities before and after the Great Earthquake of East Japan were analyzed based on the investigation for development of the DECC. Both electricity and primary energy consumption in the facilities with the residential function were reduced by approximately 8% in the Tohoku region and 16% in the Kanto region in 2011 compared to those in 2010 even though the difference of air temperatures were taken into consideration. As the results from multivariate analyses, measures related to lighting were effective for energy savings in the facilities both with and without the residential function. Additionally, changes of setting temperature of freezers could be a strong factor for energy savings in the facilities with the residential function, whereas restriction of use of electric appliances such as portable electric pots had large influences in the facilities without the function.

    INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON APPLIED ENERGY, ICAE2014   61   1677 - 1680  2014

     View Summary

    In this study, we examined the advantages of houses that use a lot of wood and natural materials and that also have breathable walls. There is insufficient research literature concerning the characteristics of effects obtained by using substantial quantities of wood for interiors. Typical Japanese modern houses have a damp-proof membrane but this risks being damaged during the tenure of residents or by earthquakes. Breathable walls do not have such a damp-proof membrane. We measured the environmental performance (indoor thermal environment, thermal environment and humidity in walls, and energy consumption) of four houses that use large amounts of wood, with each house using approximately 1.5 times the amount used by a typical wooden house. Results for one of these houses using large amounts of wood, even the room that was not air conditioned was most stable in terms of relative humidity, and 73.1% of measurements were classified as being within the central range of humidity. And the humility inside the wall was low enough to avoid the mold growth. From the viewpoint of energy, generally theses houses consumption of energy were smaller than the national average, but one was bigger because of the size of family and neighborhood circumstances.

    Journal of Environmental Engineering (Transactions of AIJ)   76 ( 664 ) 581 - 586  2011  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    In aims to meet the goal of 25% CO2 emission reduction compared to 1990 by 2020, the government has been developing policies on insulation renovations. In order to achieve the previously stated target, all existing houses are required to conduct insulation renovation. Thus, investigations on insulation efficiencies of existing apartments are necessary to verify the effect of insulation renovation on CO2 emissions. The Energy-Saving Standard, which sets the insulation efficiency of housings, was first presented in 1980, followed by the New Energy-Saving Standard in 1992 and the Next-Generation Energy-Saving Standard in 1999. Therefore, insulation efficiencies of housings are considered to be diverse depending on the age of completion. Research on the actual situation of insulation efficiencies in detached houses exists, but those on existing apartments are insufficient. In this study, we investigate the actual situation of insulation efficiencies of existing apartments and conduct an analysis on energy savings and reduction in utility costs through insulation renovation of existing apartments with different insulation efficiencies.

    In this study, the authors focused oil light wind from the sea and its thermal environment relaxation effect during periods of calm conditions during the night when there is a concern that the urban heat island phenomenon is exacerbated. The light wind from the sea may be characteristic to Urban waterfront areas where temperature increase persists throughout the day even during the night because of accumulated heat Oil the ground surface and artificial exhaust heat. The wind directions during periods of calm conditions at night were compared. The ratio of sea breeze to land wind near the ground level was greater than the ratio of the Upper-level wind during calm conditions at night. The authors focused on the period when Upper-level wind was calm. As the tipper-level wind became calm, the wind direction changed from land breeze to sea breeze, and the temperature decreased as the direction of the wind changed. These observations indicated the temperature lowering effect of light wind from the sea. Previous studies of the wind system during the night generally discussed the land breeze. This study was unique in that the authors' focused Oil utilizing the cool light breeze From the sea at night.

     View Summary

    Although the population of Japan is going to decrease, the energy consumption of the residential sector is assumed to increase. On the other hand, new construction will decrease gradually, and the ratio of the existing houses in housing market will grow up. This research shows the prediction of CO2 emission between 2005 and 2050 from housing sector of Fukuoka Prefecture by construction, operation, demolition and area based on the present situation of the housing stock.<br>Fukuoka Prefecture is divided into &ldquo;Fukuoka City&rdquo;, &ldquo;Kitakyushu City&rdquo; and &ldquo;The other area&rdquo;. The trend CO2 emission and the main factor are different by areas, directly because the decrease of population and the change of household composition. Accordingly the effect of the measures would change. In Fukuoka City CO2 emission has a high percentage of the construction and operation factor on apartment house, therefore it is said that the measures for the apartment house are comparatively important. Meanwhile in Kitakyushu City and The other area, new construction of detached house has a large percentage in new construction, but taken altogether, it is a small amount.

     View Summary

    This book provides information on the latest research findings that are useful in the context of designing sustainable houses and living in rapidly growing Asian cities. The book is composed of seven parts, comprising a total of 50 chapters written by 53 authors from various countries, mainly in the Asian region. Part I introduces vernacular houses in different Asian countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Nepal, China, Thailand and Laos. Parts II and III then explore in depth indoor adaptive thermal comfort and occupants' adaptive behavior, focusing especially on those in hot-humid climates. Part IV presents detailed survey results on household energy consumption in various tropical Asian cities, while Part V analyses the indoor thermal conditions in both traditional houses and modern houses in these countries. Several real-world sustainable housing practices in Asian cities are reviewed in the following part. The final part then discusses the vulnerability of expanding Asian cities to climate change and urban heat island. Today, approximately 35-40% of global energy is consumed in Asia, and this percentage is expected to rise further. Energy consumption has increased, particularly in the residential sector, in line with the rapid rise of the middle class. The majority of growing Asian cities are located in hot and humid climate regions, and as such there is an urgent need for designers to provide healthy and comfortable indoor environments that do not consume non-renewable energy or resources excessively. This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in sustainable house design in the growing cities of Asia.

     View Summary

    This research defines an urban whole system with social dynamics as “Habitat System”, and has constructed the general-purpose model of Habitat System applicable to different cities. Through constructing the model, a simulator, that enables to predict long-term urban environmental loads according to introduction and spread of the reduction measures and to support the effective policy planning, has been developed. The main features of the simulator are 1) versatility not dependent on city size, 2) convenience of automatically identifying internal parameters, 3) applicability that can relatively easily reflect various policy scenarios and 4) expandability that quantify the ripple effect among multiple cities by policy scenarios. By applying this simulator to different cities, we have clarified long-term CO2 emission reduction through various policy scenarios.

    本研究では、家庭用エネルギーの総合利用効率の向上を目的として、家庭用分散型電熱源機器の排熱利用と居住者のライフスタイルの影響に着目して検討を進めた。
    まず、家庭用固体高分子形燃料電池CGS、家庭用固体酸化物形燃料電池CGS、家庭用ガスエンジンμCGSの3つのコージェネレーションシステムと家庭用自然冷媒(CO_2)HP給湯器について実運転状況を再現できる計算モデルを構築し、それを用いて個別分散型電熱源機器の地域別導入効果を算出した。検討の結果、給湯負荷が大きいほどCGSのエネルギー効率が高くなる傾向が見られた。
    そこで排熱の有効利用のため、排熱利用機器と個別分散型電熱源機器とのコンビネーションシステムについて検討を進めた。ここでは夏季の排熱を利用するデシカント換気システムと冬季の排熱を利用する温水式床暖房とを対象とし、家庭用固体高分子形燃料電池CGSとを組み合わせた際の省エネルギー効果等について明らかにした。次に、さらなる総合エネルギー利用効率の向上、省エネルギーの実現のため、電力需要や給湯需要と密接な関わりのあるライフスタイルについて検討を進めた。まず、ライフスタイル調査を実施し、既往のライフスタイル調査の結果も活用して、複数世帯で1台の燃料電池CGSを共有する使い方を提案し、その導入効果を明らかにした。さらに、分散型電熱源機器が福岡市全体に普及した場合の系統電力の負荷平準化効果についても明らかにした。
    最後に、多様な単身世帯のライフスタイルについての実態調査を行い、その生活パターンとエネルギー消費行動との関わりについて詳細に分析の上、分類・整理した。さらにライフスタイルからエネルギー消費量を推定する計算モデルを構築し、それを用いてライフスタイルに応じた有効な省エネルギー対策について検討した。最後に、これらの結果から、省エネライフスタイルへ誘導するためのフローチャートを作成した。

     View Summary

    On this study, we developed a numerical simulation program to calculate the introduction effect of the Polymer Electrolyte Fuel Cell Co-Generation System (PEFC-CGS) that has been developed as a distributed power and heat source system, and examined its effect. To develop a numerical simulation program, we set up the prototype model of PEFC-CGS by the Energy Sufficient Sustainable House at Island City in Fukuoka, figured out its partial load efficiency, start up energy consumption, heat loss from the hot water tank and so on, and those date for it. By using this program, we calculated the introduction effect on the detached house by the operation methods, and the regions, on the case of it shared, and on the case of using it together with other systems such as the desiccant ventilation system.
    From the results of the calculations, it became clear that DSS operation was the most effective method to operate. In the case of the double income family with two children, if they adopt the DSS operation tracking the electric load without reverse power flow, they can reduce 11% of the primary energy consumption and 16% of the CO_2 emission per year. Furthermore they can save 1〜2% more with the contract of reverse power flow. If the 1kW PEFC-CGS is shared by 2 to 3 families, the introduction effect increase 6% more than the case of single family.
    Today, there are a lot of types of the distributed power and heat source systems, such as a gas engine CGS, a solar cell and heat system and so on, and the combinations of those equipments exist innumerably. We would like to continue the study and improvement to be able to figure out the best combination according to the family make-up, natural environment, their life style and life stage.

     View Summary

    In 2001, the law concerning Deep Subterranean Utilization went into effect in Japan. The law states that the use of space at a certain depth underground does not violate the right of the private above-land ownership. In order to provide for urban disaster mitigation in Tokyo and lessen the environmental burden, technological planning should be applied to Tokyo. This researcher focuses on deep underground space as the last precious unused space of the mega city, Tokyo. We present an effective way of developing a deep underground space network in a closed-off section of Tokyo Bay to promote urban renewal in Tokyo.
    Our research group has been working on projects related to the utilization of deep underground spaces. We have proposed several projects since the 1970s and examined their effectiveness. An outline of the latest project that aims at effective utilization of deep underground is presenter in this research. The way effective implementation of the project can be achieved is also discussed. These projects are major public- works and need to receive higher budget priority Accordingly, it is very important to work out new public- works schemes. This researcher also focuses on the results of feasibility studies and shows how the project can be realized by integrating urban disaster prevention with urban environment improvement.

    Through experiments and numerical studies, following results have been obtained.
    (1)Demonstration of the effectiveness of the localizedness of fire exposure for the fire safety of columns
    Through model experiments on a steel column exposed to a localized fire source, it has been found that its maximum temperature rise be reduced to 50 - 90 % of the column adjacent to an even flame heating.
    (2)Modeling and tabulation of heat flux distribution along a beam and a column exposed to a localized heating
    Model experiments using steel structures and porous propane burners have yielded sole dependence of heat flux distribution along a beam/ column for respective configurations and structure/fire configurations. The experimental correlations have been validated against a series of full-scale heat flux measurements. Numerical fluid dynamcs has been applied to the reproduction of the heat flux field of the steelbeam above a fire source, which has resulted in th e reproduction within the error of 30 % by the improvement of the modeling of flame radiation.
    (3)Numerical cabulation of temperature response of metal structure exposed to a localized heating
    Finite difference method has been applied to the prediction of the temperature field of a steel column exposed to a localized fire. Empirical constants such as heat transfer coeffifent have been tuned against a reference test. The cabulation has resulted in a fine reproduction of the experimental results.
