  1. 1. Recycling Potential and Design for Disassembly in Buildings

    Författare :Catarina Thormark; Institutionen för byggvetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Arkitektur; interior design; Architecture; LCA; Environmental Assessment; Deconstruction; Disassembly; Design; Building Products; Recycling Potential; Recycling; Building Waste; inredningsarkitektur; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik; Environmental technology; pollution control; Miljöteknik; kontroll av utsläpp;

    Sammanfattning : Recycling as part of environmental considerations has become a common feature in architecture and building construction. Recycling of building waste can make a considerable contribution to reducing the total environmental impact of the building sector. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is an investigation into how meta-heuristic multi-objective optimisation processes (genetic algorithms driven by evolutionary solvers) can bring about materials-related advantages in architectural performance. It redefines the architect’s and engineer’s role from being designers of a singular space or structure to being designers of entire species of spaces, and discusses a particular method – anticipatory adaptive assemblages (AAA) – that allows such processes to produce many generations of design iterations that eventually yield individuals optimised for a set of predefined objectives.

  3. 3. An analysis of architectural and urban planning strategies for developing energy efficient cities in China

    Författare :Zhenhong Gu; Fredrik Gröndahl; Dong Wei; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Energy efficiency; Nanjing; China; urban planning; passive house; low exergy system; Building Environmental Assessment; LCA; Swedish housing; Hammarby Sjöstad; eco-village; game theory; systems theory; soft systems methodology; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents a detailed analysis of architecture and urban planning strategies for developingenergy-efficient cities in a Chinese context. The overall aim of the work is to examine how Chineseurbanisation and city construction can be improved from an energy-saving perspective. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Environmental systems analysis tools for decision-making : LCA and Swedish waste management as an example

    Författare :Åsa Moberg; Göran Finnveden; Ann-Marie Tillman; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : Decisions are made based on information of different kinds. Several tools have been developed to facilitate the inclusion of environmental aspects in decision-making on different levels. Which tool to use in a specific decision-making situation depends on the decision context. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Framework For Structuring Information For Environmental Management Of Industrial Systems

    Författare :Raul Carlson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Life cycle assessment LCA ; data format; characterisation; weighting; information structuring; Design for Environment DfE ; indicator; sustainable development; industrial environmental information systems; database;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis addresses information structuring for reducing cost, facilitate understandability, increase relevance and improve quality of environmental information. The research is based in experience, practical results and syntheses from three different but related research and development projects conducted between 1994 and 2004. LÄS MER
