A Study on the Floor-Specific Characteristics of Road Traffic Noise in Apartment Buildings
Ham, Jin-Sik ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 1~8
This study is an attempt to understand the floor-specific characteristics of facade road traffic noise in apartment buildings. For this purpose, it sampled a total of seven roadside apartment building complexes: three with no soundproof bar barrier installed at roadside, one with a forest buffer zone, one with a sound-absorbing hill, and two with soundproof barriers. The measured noise level was highest on the 5th floor of apartment buildings with no soundproof barrier, and the upper stories from the 5th floor showed lower-noise measurements in order. For apartment buildings with soundproof barriers, however, the noise level was lower on the 10th floor than the 5th floor. Two apartment building groups--one with a sound-absorbing hill and the other with no soundproof barrier--showed similar measurement results in the floor-specific characteristics of facade road traffic noise. This suggests that such installations have little sound insulation effect. In the apartment building complex with a forest buffer zone around it, a slight sound insulation effect was measured on the lower floors of the buildings.
Topological Investigation of the Generative Grammar for the Balcony Access Type Apartment Houses in Seoul
Seo, Kyung-Wook ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 9~16
This study aims to construct the design competence by means of a topological approach. To this end, the linguistic concept of 'competence and performance' in Chomskian sense is borrowed and applied to the study. The usability of this method is then tested against the sample apartment plans from Gangnam-gu area in Seoul, and it is found that this enabled a middle-ground approach to a more productive grammar that overcomes the limits in Glassie's and Stiny's grammar systems. Through a series of analyses on the sample plans, it could be clarified that there appear classificatory levels in the competence that controls the planning of the building, zoning of the unit, and layout of LDK combination. At the end, it is evaluated that the generative grammar, constructed in this research, is the possible world in designers' minds, and this retrospective remodelling of the architectural competence could illuminate the 'design decision flow' that generates the sample plans.
A Case Study of Post-Occupancy Evaluation of Home Automation System by Digital Home Residents - Focused on H Highrise Apartment -
Kwon, Oh-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 17~27
Recently, newly built apartments in Korea are provided various home automation (HA) systems based on information technology(IT) for residents' safer, healthier and more convenient living. However, the residents in these digital apartments are often not able to use the home automation systems effectively because of lack of their IT knowledge, attitude, or education. However, there are few researches have been done to find out the HA systems' real problems with regard to residents' aspects who use those systems everyday. The purpose of this study was to find out residents' current uses, satisfaction level and existing problems of HA systems by residents' POE. The findings of this study will give useful information to digital home construction companies to provide user-friendly digital home services for increasing users' satisfaction. One distinctive apartment equipped with home automation systems located in Seoul was selected for in-depth personal interview. The researcher developed a survey instrument and collected the data from 58 residents in January, 2007 who had been living there for more than a year. The results of the study found that critical problems were existed in several systems and they caused a lot of dissatisfaction from the residents. Also, some residents do not use several systems although they need to use them due to the burden of maintenance fee. Further detail findings and suggestions of this study were discussed.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 29~37
This study aims to analysis the migration tendency according to the residents' lifestyle in a large residential estate development. The lifestyle of residents in the suburban area who make their life by agriculture is different from that in the inner city. It may affect on the migration tendencies of the residents. Sin-seo residential land development district is located in the suburban of Daegu is chosen as the case study. This study examines the characteristics of residents' lifestyle and their migration tendency and analyzes the correlation between them. According to the results, the appropriate countermeasures to support the migrants are drawn as follows; First, the people who want to resettle and continue to do farming in the same place should be compensated with housing lands near their farmlands. Second, the residents who want to carry on a small business should be provided with the housing land near to the commercial zones. Third, the size of the new neighborhood unit should be enough to preserve the existing social structure as the social relationship among the neighbors is one of the most important factors in rural communities. Fourth, the high level of housing attachment of the residents needs to remain by maintaining the names of villages and roads of the neighborhoods. It is required to consider the lifestyle of residents and active communities when large residential land development district is planed in the suburban.
A Study on the Residents' Needs for Service Facilities in Multi-family Housing Properties
Shin, Hwa-Kyoung ; Lee, Joon-Min ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 39~48
The purpose of this study was to examine the characteristics of service facilities, and needs for service facilities using for leisure in multi-family housing properties. The multi-family housing complexes in Seoul were selected in this study. Site visits, analysis of drawing of complex and questionnaire survey were conducted. The statistical techniques used for data analysis included frequencies. The research results were as follows; The studied apartment complexes provided the appropriate and adequate service facilities in accordance to the regulations of multi-family housing. Playground for children, senior center, resting place were found in all the complexes, but the presence of exercise facilities, shared spaces, green spaces, and community parks was somewhat different across the studied complexes. Satisfaction with leisure facilities were different with the apartment complexes. The respondents who had lived older apartment complexes were more likely to increase dissatisfaction, and the reason was attributed to no presence of the leisure facilities they wanted to use. The respondents said that such service facilities using for leisure facilities as playground for children, senior center, community parks, walkways, reading room, and fitness center were highly needed.

Recently, much attention has been paid to the problem such as sick building syndrome, which caused by the indoor air pollutant. Volatile Organic Compounds
and formaldehyde have been considered as one of the main reason that causes indoor air pollutant. This study is for introducing and designing thermal performance of super energy saving building by conducting
and formaldehyde concentration in the 3Liter house. The results of the measurement for 10 months showed that
and formaldehyde decreased until the guideline concentration. It took about 7 months, and it appeared right after new construction. However, their levels were showed higher concentration in comparison with the ordinary residential houses (apartment house). The main difference of between newly built 3Liter house and ordinary apartment is their air changes, which are 0.67/h for 3Liter house and 4.0/h for the apartment.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 57~66
In the past, strong social bands, which had spontaneous communities, existed in Korean traditional society. However, while it's developing through industrialization; monolithic apartment houses were introduced which causes less interaction between neighbors. With the growing attention to the higher living quality, various schemes to revitalize the community spirits have been groped, including to improve in hardhearted neighborhood relationships and to cope with the dreariness in the city. With the development of the internet and the spread of 'digital home', the communities in cyber space have been especially revitalized since the information-oriented society. In a move to strengthen the communities in apartment complexes, this study tries to find the revitalization scheme for virtual communities in apartment complexes by analyzing the contents of its web sites and understanding the world of virtual community. These are compared and analyzed. The related virtual communities ("cafe" or "blogs") are also analyzed. The results are as follows. 1) There are some differences among the contents provided by apartment virtual community developing companies, still, it could be categorized into four types; "apartment complex introduction and management information" "community revitalization" "living guide" "individual services" 2) The contents provided by self-organized communities of residents neither require additional charge nor special membership for information while the formation is not systematized. 3) In the comparison of apartment virtual community developing companies with residents self-organized communities, "apartment complex introduction and management information" on freeboard, notice, request and Q&A, and "community revitalization" on communication board are both provided throughout the web sites. 4) The contents provided by apartment virtual community developing companies makes the information available in a wide range with managers, on the other hand, self-organized communities emphasize on showing attachment and concern of residents and requiring communications between neighborhoods.
A Study on the Environmental Evaluation for Bed Room Space of University Dormitories in North Region in Gyeongbuk Province
Hwang, Yong-Woon ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 67~77
In general, the function of university dormitory includes residental, educational and many other functions for students who need quite environment and energetic living life. Among these many functions, the most important function is residental function (bed room). This study attempts to evaluate the bed room environment of four university dormitories in north region of Gyeongbuk Province using resident's (students) need and satisfaction. In the present work, SPSS window version12.0 program's Anova (duncan, scheff, t-test.) was used for analysis of statistical data which obtained from survey. The field surveys carried out for a total samples of 473 residents such as AD (118), DY (159), Kw (101) and SJ (95)) types of bed room in four university dormitories. The result appears that the most dissatisfied factor of resident was personal privacy, and the most satisfied factor was the direction (location) of bed room space.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 79~88
Hot water is used by having a wash, dishes, taking tub and drinking water in residential buildings, and the use objective is to raise comfort of human body sense, washing and sterilization effect and so on. Cold & hot water supply system is understanded simpler than HVAC systems relatively, so it is true that pace of performance improvement is slower than other systems for plan and technical development. In this study, the performance evaluations are conducted under the condition of composition ratio by 1:1 for cold & hot water supply manifold system using functionally complex valves such as constant flow regulating valve and 3-way mixing valve in the area of
apartment which consist of the largest part of the whole apartment. Also, flow rate related to simultaneous use of faucets and change of hot water temperature are compared with the existing method.

Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 19, issue 1, 2008, Pages 89~96
This study measured the thermal environment and residents' control behaviors of cooing according to 3 groups of household type-families with preschool children, families of middle age and families of senior. The object of this study are to fmd the difference of the actual condition of indoor thermal environment and cooling control behavior by age or household type and to develop user oriented climate control system. The results were summarized as follows. When the age of members at household is younger, the indoor mean temperature and temperature that people turned off the air conditioner became lower. These different indoor thermal environment of each group means that younger generation is familiar with cooler from their early age and these early uses of cooler made them prefer cooler condition than family of senior. Therefore, this results show that different indoor thermal environment is influenced by factors such as household type and metabolism difference and so on.
