Since the last decade of the 20th century, agrarian valuation has become more relevant, concepts such as landscape, environmental services, and conservation have become present as intangible assets and this gives new meaning to valuation jobs. The objective of the research was to establish the value of the restoration of soils in rural and/or agricultural lands, for which three agricultural properties were considered, which before being subjected to a comprehensive restoration process, carried out a commercial appraisal, once completed restoration work and after five years, the commercial appraisal is updated, finding that, although the investment made to carry out the restoration process can be recovered with the results obtained, this type of work does not represent large margins of utility, which shows the importance of taking care of land degradation.</em></p> Marisela Moreno Medina, Francisco José Martín del Campo Saray Copyright (c) 2022 Marisela Moreno Medina, Francisco José Martín del Campo Saray Fri, 01 Apr 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Feasibility of the use of recovered glass in ceramic production. A proposal oriented by eco-efficiency, circular economy and sustainability <p>In this research, tests were carried out to corroborate the feasibility of integrating glass, considered a waste, in the ceramic manufacturing process, and thus reduce both the use of virgin raw materials and energy consumption. Glass from single-use bottles were recovered and processed to integrate it into the formulation of ceramic compounds. The eco-efficiency approach was used to compare the results obtained, and thus configure procedures that were integrated into the proposed proposal. Due to the fact that each pottery community has a raw material with its own characteristics, which are given according to the particular environment in which they are developed, two clays were selected, whose samples were located at the extremes of the characteristics of an optimal material for making ceramic pieces: a) a lump of clay with a high degree of plasticity and b) a reddish soil with high iron content. Plasticity, shrinkage, porosity, and resistance to deformation tests were carried out with a ceramic compound containing soil, clay, and ground glass in different proportions, to compare their properties after a firing process. The results show the feasibility of reusing glass waste by incorporating them into the ceramic manufacturing process, achieving pieces with adequate characteristics, while: a) reducing, up to 20%, the consumption of clays and b) promoting the greater energy efficiency of the firing process: at the same temperature, samples to which the glass has been added registered a decrease in the sintering point, which represents a saving in energy consumption.</p> Jaime Miguel Hernández González, José Leandro Mendoza Cuenca, Octavio Francisco González Castillo Copyright (c) 2022 Jaime Miguel Hernández González, José Leandro Mendoza Cuenca, Octavio Francisco González Castillo Fri, 01 Apr 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Assessment of territorial vulnerability: Defining the scale of sustainable date production. The case of Laguna Salada, Mexico <p>Given the aridity of the Laguna Salada territory (Mexico) and the scarcity of hydro-productive data on date cultivation in the American continent; The purpose of this research is to determine to what extent and under what conditions the date palm surface could be expanded by the Laguna Salada without violating its capacity to develop sustainably. Methodologically, it carries out an assessment of the vulnerability of the territory to achieve the objective. The results of the evaluation determine the possibility of expanding the date palm surface because the average production scale (3 hectares) is below the sustainable production scale (7 hectares). However, it is also pointed out that there is a low capacity for adaptation of the territory caused by the existence of inoperative and deficient risk management mechanisms. The most suitable area to expand the surface is the northwest of the study area.</p> Erika Rubi Nemesio-Laguna, Adriana Margarita Arias-Vallejo Copyright (c) 2022 Erika Rubi Nemesio-Laguna, Adriana Margarita Arias-Vallejo Fri, 13 May 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Seismic fragility of a reinforced concrete building using vector-valued seismic intensity measures based on spectral shape <p><em>Vector-valued seismic intensity measures have shown to be more efficient compared to traditional intensity measures for predicting the response of structures with non-linear behavior or those dominated by higher modes; however, few studies have demonstrated the capability of these new measures to estimate the seismic fragility of buildings with good accuracy. In the present work, eight vector-valued seismic intensity measures composed of two parameters were analyzed. For all cases, the pseudo-acceleration at the fundamental mode of vibration of the structure, Sa (T<sub>1</sub>), was used as the first component of the vector and the Maximum Soil Acceleration (AMS), Maximum Soil Velocity ​​(VMS), effective duration (T<sub>D</sub>), seismic potential (I<sub>D</sub>) and the spectral shape parameters R<sub>T1, T2</sub>, Np<sub>Sa</sub>, Np<sub>V</sub>, and Np<sub>Sv</sub>, as the second component of the vectors. In order to evaluate the efficiency of the selected intensity measures in the seismic fragility analysis, a 10-level reinforced concrete building was subjected to 30 narrow-band seismic records obtained from México City. The results have shown that the vector-valued seismic intensity measures that presents a better relation with the probability of failure is &lt;Sa (T<sub>1</sub>), Np<sub>Sa</sub>&gt; compared to the other parameters; especially regarding Sa (T<sub>1</sub>) which is widely used in current building codes. Therefore, it is desirable that future building regulations should consider more appropriate seismic intensity measures.</em></p> Noel Zavala Gutiérrez, Edén Bojórquez Mora, Manuel Antonio Barraza Guerrero, Juan Bojórquez Mora, Almendra Villela y Mendoza, José Ignacio Torres Peñuelas, José Rubén Campos Gaytán, Ricardo Sánchez Vergara Copyright (c) 2022 Noel Zavala Gutiérrez, Edén Bojórquez Mora, Manuel Antonio Barraza Guerrero, Juan Bojórquez Mora, Almendra Villela y Mendoza, José Ignacio Torres Peñuelas, José Rubén Campos Gaytán, Ricardo Sánchez Vergara Fri, 29 Apr 2022 00:00:00 +0000 Investment decisions: an intangible assets and liabilities approach (analysis in the logistic segment) <p>This study shows the factors that affect business investment decisions traditionally concentrated towards the tangible asset, considering this as the principal-agent to strengthen the wealth of the organization and the new orientation towards investing in intangible assets. The objective of the research is to examine the perception of the current entrepreneur regarding new parameters in their investment decisions towards intangible or immaterial assets, as an element that can generate long-term value in the company. In addition, it examines the intangible liability, as an agent that could reduce the value of the company. In this sense, the research is framed within the qualitative and quantitative modality, carrying out a diagnosis of seven cases of companies in the logistics sector in San José, Costa Rica, applying the survey ticket technique and an intangible model, from which obtained as the main result that these examined companies are progressively incorporating the criteria of intangible assets in the modern dynamics of improvement, for effective business management in an extended commercial horizon.</p> Harold Coronado Coronado Copyright (c) 2022 Harold Coronado Coronado Tue, 17 May 2022 00:00:00 +0000
