  1. 1. The Social Roles of Buildings : An Account of Materiality and Meaning in Urban Outcomes

    Författare :Lauren Dean; Jens Rydgren; Charlotta Stern; Harvey Molotch; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Buildings; Building Types; Urban Studies; Materiality; Culture; Urban Forms; Urban Space; Reuse; Neighborhoods; Sociology of Buildings; Theory; Visual Methods; Historical Analysis; Santiago; Chile; Cités; Sociology; sociologi;

    Sammanfattning : The dissertation explores the roles of buildings in urban social life. Buildings, as both a methodological tool and a research site, are valuable for understanding society. As a method, buildings allow access to various urban contexts. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Design of Energy Efficient Buildings. Applied on HVAC Systems in Commercial Buildings

    Författare :Lennart Jagemar; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :design; simulations; economic analysis; energy efficiency; commercial;

    Sammanfattning : A methodology for planning and design of energy efficient buildings is presented and analysed. The starting point is the definition that energy efficiency is a question of minimizing the energy end-use within realistic economic frames and fully preserved function. The methodology is based on a systematic approach to the issue of energy efficiency. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Cooling demand in commercial buildings-The influence of building design

    Författare :Hendrik Voll; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; solar factor; influence of design; cooling load; Commercial buildings; energy need; window share;

    Sammanfattning : Large window areas and glass façades have become popular by architects. As the glass architecture has become fashionable in quite a short time it seems that the architects are not always aware of the energy consuming consequences that the highly glazed buildings, sometimes in combination with special room plans might cause.

  4. 4. Cooling Demand and Daylight in Commercial Buildings The Influence of Window Design

    Författare :Hendrik Voll; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; daylight; building design; solar factor; glare.; energy need; window share; Commercial buildings; cooling demand;

    Sammanfattning : The modern design of office buildings shows a tendency to increase the window share per facade to be more impressive with grand visibility and well daylit rooms. An increased window share results in general in increased use of energy and costs for cooling, but these disadvantages can be reduced considering a more careful design. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Free cooling in commercial buildings. Application with evaporative cooling tower and chilled beams

    Författare :Bengt Bergsten; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cooling tower; commercial buildings; simulation; low energy cooling; evaporative cooling; hydronic cooling system; internal heat gain; free cooling; chilled beams; methodology;

    Sammanfattning : The use of electricity in commercial buildings has increased over the last decades. One major cause is the rapid escalation of air conditioning equipment together with a growth of internal heat gains originating mainly from an increased amount of office equipment, which also use electric energy, and high levels of solar irradiation.
