Article Study on Indoor Heat and Moisture Transport with Coupling Simulation of CFD and Vapor Diffusion thro
Author Yaw Shyan, Tsay

Recently, issues regarding health problems related to dampness in buildings have been widely reported in Europe and America. In some studies, a moisture buffer effect that provides passive moisture control using interior materials was proposed as an effective way to alleviate such dampness problems. Until now, in order to evaluate the moisture buffer effect, a simulation model that assumes the indoor air temperature and humidity to be uniform (complete diffusion) has been widely used. However, when using this method, it is difficult to evaluate the influence of vapor distribution near materials and the contribution of materials in different positions of a room space. In this paper, the authors propose a new CFD simulation model incorporating a coupled simulation method with convection and heat and vapor transportation through interior building materials.

Article A Study of Developing Cultural Creative Industry as the Urban Regeneration Policies
Author Bing-Shu Lai,Jen-Te Pai

Facing the wave of globalization, advanced countries considered the cultural creative industries as the focal point of economic development one by one. Besides, the academic discussions on cultural industries also shifted from the criticism after WWII on mass culture to concerning the role of cultural industries in the economic development, for example, the promotion of urban regeneration by cultural economic policies. The aim of this study is to develop cultural creative industry as the urban regeneration policies. Ruhr Industrial Area in Germany was selected as study cases. This paper discusses the relation between cultural creative industry and urban regeneration. By strengthening the creative and cultural cities, the development of cultural creative industries, will help improve urban living environment, the city's image to change the negative impact of urban development to be renewable.

Article An Economic Impact Analysis Of Lagoon Eco-tourism In Cigu Township,Tainan County
Author Ping-hsiang Hsu,Ying-kuei Hsiao

The Cigu area, which is a lagoon area, rubber raft industry, the snack industry, restaurant industry and other eco-tourism activities have gradually attracted more tourists and encouraged the development of local economy. This research penetrates a multiplier model, analyzes the economic impact which the eco-tourism of Cigu area produces. The analysis result showed that, the economic impact of the eco-tourism, contain two parts: the direct effect and indirect effect. The direct effect on the eco-tourism industry is that total tourist expenditure is 473 million NT dollars.  Income multiplier is 1.58, that means each tourist consumes extra one dollar, probably produce 1.58 dollars to the local residents. The large multiplier also means that the eco-tourism industries benefit local economy significantly. In addition, sea-food restaurant industry contributes most to the indirect effect.

Relating to the calculation of tourism multiplier, sufficient secondary social-economic survey data is a necessary condition. Thus, the application of Ad hoc model in Taiwan is more feasible in county scale than in community scale.

Article A location-allocation model for urban public health care facilities
Author Jen-Jia Lin,Yi-Nan Hsu

This study aims to design a location-allocation model for urban public health care facilities. The past studies about location of health care facilities ignored two issues: health care is hierarchical services and uncertain elements exist in location planning works. This study tried to deal with the two issues and develop a useful tool to assist urban planners on location planning of public health care facilities. The model was designed a grey multi-objective programming model considering competitive facilities, service capacity, social inclusion and justice, finance feasibility, hierarchical services and uncertainties. The problem-solving approach applies grey programming approach for grey parameters and variables and the e-constraint method for multiple objectives. The case study of Taipei presents the applicability and usefulness of the developed model. By using of the developed model, location planning of public health care facilities can be objectively and systematically deployed.
