Structures and Architecture - Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Structures and Architecture, ICSA 2016 | Year: 2016

Railway stations are the very unusual combination of architecture and structure. They serve people but they have also to consider structural requirements of trains. Currently, the modern stations are multifunctional complexes, connecting multi-modes of transportation. Architecture and structure at these stations are complementary to each other. The true aesthetic design can be only achieved by their coordination from the very beginning of the design process. The paper is formulating the conditions to achieve a well-balanced aesthetic station. Some parts of the station-such as platforms, canopies, are very much determined by the outstanding structure and other-like station building are very much dependent on architecture. Together these facilities are on the borderline between architecture and structural engineering. The article is analyzing this relationship and is categorizing the recent stations in Japan and Europe. © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

The 11 March 2011 MW 9.0 Tohoku megathrust earthquake off the Pacific coast of Japan was a salient event in the history of Japan. The resultant huge tsunami (the 2011 Tohoku-oki tsunami) inundated a vast coastal area of northeastern Japan, causing widespread devastation. Twenty days after the tsunami, we analyzed the impact of the tsunami on the sea bottom of the Kesennuma inner bay using side-scan sonar to explore the damage and bathymetric change in the harbor. Herein we present the first direct evidence that the sea bottom sediments of around 10-15m were largely reworked by the tsunami to thickness of a few meters, and that large dunes were formed by the tsunami. Considering that the sea wave influence is as weak as it is inside the inner bay, the potential exists that even meter-thick paleo-tsunami deposits are preserved in shallow sea bottoms with large bedforms. This finding will be a stepping-stone to future geological studies of tsunami effects in shallow sea regions. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

The new concept for flood control called 'Cascade' method which permits dams to overflow around an upstream region with a sequence of dams constructed in a river is proposed. Multiple small scale dry dams should be constructed in series instead of a large scale dam in order to prevent flood disaster and preserve the natural environment. Recently a flood control dam with a bottom outlet hole as its regular spillway, known as 'dry dam', has been reviewed, planned and built in some sites in Japan. Under a condition of a common reservoir capacity, the Cascade type flood control permitting upstream dams to overflow except for the most downstream dam in a river is compared with a conventional one not to overflow each dam in a numerical simulation. As a result, it is made clear that the Cascade method using multiple dry dams is much more effective than the conventional one. In this connection, the Cascade type flood control method permitting upstream dams to overflow from emergency spillways except for the most downstream dam can be applied to normal storage dams with slide gates operated conventionally. Therefore, it could become an effective adaptation method for the global warming problem since it is performed by only changing how to operate slide gates in existing storage dams constructed in series. In addition, we also propose a new type of dry dam that has a closable and openable gate for its regular spillway primarily to retain the water for the water utilization. The new type of dry dam, which should be constructed in the upper reach away from the existing downstream storage dam needing still more its capacity for water utilization, ensures the amount of water available for the use by closing the regular spillway after the new dry dam is at full capacity, and the flood control capacity of the dams including the new dry dam is stronger than that of the normal dams owing to the storage function with the new dry dam. The new dry dams may improve the water utilization, the flood control, and environmentfriendliness under the current condition in Thailand damaged by the severe flood in 2011.

Several application examples are shown in which Light Emitting Deformation Sensors are used for deformation monitoring of infrastructures (slopes, tunnels, etc) and other purposes. Unlike conventional method of data acquisition, the use of this new device enables real-time data processing and visualization onsite, so that the state of deformation for a rock structure in concern is grasped with no delay in time and is shown visually to anyone nearby. Rationally designed use of this sensor could minimize risks not only during construction of infrastructures but also during their service time. © 2010 Taylor & Francis Group.

Travel by railways is now more popular than it was several years ago. Along with the "station renaissance", many new stations have been built and many historical stations have been refurbished and developed. Stations have become more user-friendly, satisfying many needs and various additional functions. This paper examines factors, which have an influence that railway stations in Europe and Japan have become more designated for people than, like before, for trains. The conclusion is that both in Europe and Japan many factors of station design are essential for people and make travel by rail more convenient.

Assessment, Upgrading and Refurbishment of Infrastructures | Year: 2013

Since 1980s, railway architecture has been experiencing "station renaissance". Along with this trend, many large historical stations have been refurbished, upgraded and developed. Modern extensions need to fit to historical settings and to add additional values of modernity and attractiveness to railway stations. This paper examines such stations on the example of Europe and Japan and concludes that these transport facilities with their re-born buildings improving travel by rail, are new-generation station and often urban landmarks.
