A metodologia inclui pesquisa exploratória descritiva e análise quantitativa e qualitativa aplicadas nos estudos de caso. Como técnicas de pesquisa, foi realizada análise bibliográfica de documentação publicada específica, identificando as principais características dos contêineres ISO e apresentando alguns exemplos nacionais e internacionais da sua reutilização na arquitetura. Também, os aspectos relacionados com o projeto, a construção e o desempenho térmico deste tipo de edificações. Foram realizadas entrevistas com os projetistas e profissionais responsáveis pelas obras e visitas exploratórias para obtenção de registros gráficos, fotográficos e levantamento físico espacial das edificações. Para escolha dos empreendimentos foram considerados o tipo de uso das edificações, a região em que estão localizadas, a sua zona bioclimática e o seu ano de construção. A primeira etapa do estudo buscou caracterizar as edificações e o terreno em que estão construídas por meio de plantas e imagens. Na segunda etapa, os aspectos projetuais dessas edificações foram avaliados, sendo utilizado um método de análise morfológica baseado em conceitos apresentados por Ching (1995). Na terceira etapa, foi feita a caracterização do processo construtivo desses empreendimentos, evidenciando as transformações e adaptações realizadas na envoltória dos contêineres. Na quarta etapa, utilizou-se o método simplificado de cálculo estabelecido pela norma NBR 15220-2 (2005) para avaliar o desempenho térmico das vedações e coberturas dos três estudos de caso. Na quinta etapa os resultados obtidos nessas análises foram correlacionados por meio de quadros comparativos para identificar os aspectos mais relevantes na reutilização dos contêineres. Esses resultados mostram-se satisfatórios quanto à linguagem compositiva e à diversidade de usos na arquitetura. De outra parte, observaram-se dificuldades técnicas e construtivas quanto à manipulação dos contêineres e realização de adequações para melhorias no desempenho térmico de modo a atender as exigências normativas brasileiras. Por fim, pode-se concluir, a partir destes estudos de caso, que a reutilização de contêineres ISO na arquitetura apresenta um potencial de uso nas edificações comerciais, podendo contribuir para um incremento da sustentabilidade nas construções da região sul do Brasil.<br> / Abstract : This research aims to evaluate the projectual and constructive aspects and standard requirements of the thermal performance of reused ISO containers in architecture. The objects of study are three commercial buildings located in the south of Brazil. The methodology includes descriptive exploratory research and quantitative and qualitative analysis applied in the case studies. As research techniques, literature review of specific published documentation was carried out to identify the main characteristics of ISO containers, presenting some national and international examples of their reuse in architecture and aspects related to the project, the construction and the thermal performance of this type of building. The study also included interviews with designers and professionals responsible for the work and exploratory visits to obtain graphics and photographic records and spatial physical surveys of the buildings. To select the projects were considered the use of the buildings, the region where they are located, their bioclimatic zone and its year of construction. The first stage of the study aimed to characterize the buildings and the place on which they are located by plants and pictures. In the second stage, the projectual aspects of these buildings were evaluated, using a morphological analysis method based on concepts presented by Ching (1995). In the third stage was characterized the construction process of these projects, highlighting the changes and adjustments made in the containers. In the fourth step, was used the simplified method of calculation established by NBR 15220-2 (2005) to evaluate the thermal performance of seals and covers of the three case studies. In the fifth step the results obtained from such analyzes were correlated through comparative tables to identify the most relevant aspects of the reuse of containers. These results related to the compositional language and the diversity of uses in architecture were satisfactory. On the other hand, there were technical and constructive difficulties related to the manipulation of the containers and to carry out adequacies for improvement in thermal performance to meet the Brazilian regulatory requirements. Finally, it can be concluded, from these case studies, that the reuse of ISO containers in architecture presents a potential of use in commercial buildings, and could contribute to improve the sustainability of buildings in southern Brazil.

Integrity of packages and contents subject to handling and distribution hazards

Sun, Jianyuan January 1998 (has links)
The use of loosely packed items in rigid or semi-rigid containers is widespread. These packages are very often handled by high speed equipment and put in different environmental conditions which includes the possibility of mechanical damage, due to shock, impact and compression. So care must be taken that damage does not occur to both package and contents. The development of analytical and simulation techniques for investigating the dynamic behaviour of a package subject to handling and distribution hazards is becoming more possible by the use of a wide range of available software. The modelling of the dynamic behaviour of packaging systems during handling and transport is achieved by mathematical analysis where possible and supported by computer simulation. The analysis was carried out for a range of body properties in order to test the results against experimental data. Investigations into the applied package force/motion and subsequent package impact and deformation were carried out with a view to gaining an understanding of the forces involved. The dynamic analysis was undertaken using commercially available software but it is necessary to develop special techniques to enable it to be applied to this type of problem. Corrugated fibreboard containers subjected to internal and external loading will be subjected to stress, strain, deflection, and buckling to side panels. A Finite Element method of analysis of the panel was developed. The reaction of the panel to loading can be observed by means of this method. The failure of the container due to the loading can be predicted and the variability of the material and the panel can be changed arbitrarily to test and analyze different packaging designs. Corrugated fibreboard and container elements were treated as engineering structures so the engineering concepts of stress, stain, equilibrium and compatibility could be applied. A Finite Element method using the ANSYS code made it possible to analyze the structure behaviour and helps to partly solve the design optimization process for a corrugated container. The project includes four main aspects: Finite Element analysis of the corrugated fibreboard and container elements subjected to internal and external load. 2 Corrugated fibreboard material tests. 3 Modelling of a package-contents system 4 Simulation of the products-cushion-package system The main area of research that is described in this thesis is concerned with developing the analytical and experimental methods to model and analyze the behaviour of packaging. This enables the size of the cushioning structure to be minimized and the cushioning and package material to be selected appropriately. The final stage of this project was to develop the techniques for the prediction of the susceptibility to damage to packaging systems particularly during the design stage, and to develop a comprehensive technique for the design and justification of the package system.
