In the subtropical climate of Taiwan, indoor building materials have a significant impact on the poor indoor air quality, which leads to health problems and increased risks of cancer. Currently, the “Green building materials labels” and the Indoor Air Quality Act have been promoted to control the source of pollution, namely the fugitive pollutants of the building materials and the air concentration in the indoor space. Emphasis is placed on the advanced administrative control of the Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) to reduce the harm that could be caused by the fugitive pollutants of the indoor building materials to health. This study adopted the fugitive emission database of 645 pieces of the building materials with a green label, test, and verification of the fugitive emission of the seven small pieces of the building materials, numerical statistics and analysis, and literature analysis to research the control of the evaluation factors of fugitive TVOC from green building materials in Taiwan. The purpose of this is to prevent other toxic Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from affecting the indoor air quality, effectively controlling the harm to residents, reducing the energy consumption of the air conditioning for removing pollutants through ventilation, and reducing the carbon emissions, and protect the environment. © 2016 Taylor & Francis Group, London.

The main purpose of this study is to investigate the energy saving strategy on the Sustainable Campus Renovation Plan by recycling and reuse of rainwater in Taiwan. Case studies from the past were also investigated for effectiveness comparisons, which include both economical values and environmental values. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) has been implemented for quantification purposes and it provided the visualization and comparison of energy saving improvement database. Moreover, a model for assessing the improvement on the recycling and reuse of rain water could be constructed. In addition, a set of improved strategy process and steps of rain water recycling and reuse methodology may be proposed which result in the vision of the Sustainable Campus Renovation establishment. © 2017, ALÖKI Kft., Budapest, Hungary.

Bipolar switching resistance behaviors of the Gd:SiO2 resistive random access memory (RRAM) devices on indium tin oxide electrode by the low-temperature supercritical CO2-treated technology were investigated. For physical and electrical measurement results obtained, the improvement on oxygen qualities, properties of indium tin oxide electrode, and operation current of the Gd:SiO2 RRAM devices were also observed. In addition, the initial metallic filament-forming model analyses and conduction transferred mechanism in switching resistance properties of the RRAM devices were verified and explained. Finally, the electrical reliability and retention properties of the Gd:SiO2 RRAM devices for low-resistance state (LRS)/high-resistance state (HRS) in different switching cycles were also measured for applications in nonvolatile random memory devices.

In recent years great importance has been attached to environmental protection-related issues in Taiwan. In addition courses of green building, ecological construction, environmental quality and low-carbon development have been included as required courses in the Department of Architecture. This study selected the decision-making key factors for improving existing buildings from the perspective of ''Environmental Quality'' and reducing ''Environmental Load,'' to establish the TBEE (Taiwan Building Environment Efficiency) model for evaluating indoor environment health and the improvement of existing buildings in Taiwan. This TBEE model has also become an important curriculum in the current Green Design Courses in Taiwan. This model is used to teach students how to calculate the values of indoor environmental health before/after the improvements of existing buildings. It uses an objective scientific calculation method, which can help improve the indoor environment health and the evaluation of the quality (Q) and the load (L). This TBEE model has been used as a reference for evaluating the indoor environment efficiency of existing buildings by the authorities in Taiwan. © 2014 TEMPUS Publications.

The purpose of this study was to provide students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) the chance to cooperate with their peers to perform computer mouse collaborative pointing operation. In this study, we adopted the Single Display Groupware (SDG) concept to develop the Multiple Cursor Collaborative Operating Program (MCCOP) software, which allows multiple users to operate a single computer simultaneously without interfering with each other. With the implementation of MCCOP software, users control their own cursors to perform a function in their respective cursor moving areas on a single display. A collaborative pointing test software (CPTS) program was designed in this experiment to evaluate participants' collaborative pointing performance. This study adopted an ABAB design, and the experimental results show that all participants significantly increased their collaborative pointing performance during the intervention phase, compared to the baseline phase. Practical and developmental implications of the findings are discussed. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

In this paper we propose a novel Adjustable Integrating Pointing device Driver (AIPDD) using software technology to redesign mouse driver to integrate the functions of commercial pointing devices to help them to effectively utilize commercial pointing devices to operate computers. In contrast with the latest studies, the software-based AIPDD has the following benefits. (a) It does not require additional hardware cost and circuit preservation. (b) It supports all commercial pointing devices with standard interfaces of a computer, including PS/2, USB and wireless interfaces. (c) It can integrate unlimited devices simultaneously. (d) It is adjustable in real time. In summary, the AIPDD has the benefits of flexibility, low cost, high efficiency and high device compatibility. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

This study presents an optical waveguide formed by a self-focusing pump beam in a nematic liquid crystal thin film. The pump beam is a polarized high power Gaussian laser beam. Applying a voltage near the Freedericksz transition threshold enhances the optical field of pump beam to reorientate liquid crystal molecules. The reorientation of LC molecules forms the refractive index as a Gaussian-like distribution in the pump beam region. By the assistance of applying electric field, the pump beam can form an optic waveguide by self-focusing effect. A polarized lower power probe beam near the waveguide can be coupled to the waveguide. The coupling efficiency can be controlled by applying voltage. © 2015 Elsevier GmbH.

Today's competition in manufacturing industry depends not just on lean manufacturing but also on the ability to provide customers with total solutions and life-cycle costs for sustainable value. This study therefore proposes an analytic hierarchy model to help the administrators understand the critical risk factors influence the E-manufacturing system initiation, and an aggregative risk degree is indicated which risk grade they are in. The importance weights of risk factors and possible occurrence ratings of four risk grade (high-risk, medium-risk, low-risk and none-risk) are determined by using consistent fuzzy preference relations. © (2014) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
