    Sammanfattning : The thesis focuses on the efficiency of the space heating system. In particular, the efficiency factors measure the efficiency of thermal zone. The efficiency factors measures how the energy is used in a space heating. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Maintenance performance indicators (MPIs) for railway infrastructure : identification and analysis for improvement

    Författare :Thomas Åhrén; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Drift och underhållsteknik; Operation and Maintenance;

    Sammanfattning : With increasing awareness that maintenance not only ensures safety and track performance, but also creates additional value in the business process; many infrastructure managers and owners are treating maintenance as an integral part of the business process. This is also true for the Banverket (Swedish National Rail Administration). LÄS MER

  3. 3. Improved building energy simulations and verifications by regression

    Författare :Jimmy Vesterberg; Thomas Olofsson; Folke Björk; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Calibrated simulations; Energy signature; Regression; BES; IDA ICE; Multifamily buildings; EUI;

    Sammanfattning : It is common with significant differences between calculated and actual energy use in the building sector. These calculations are often performed with whole building energy simulation (BES) programs. In this process the analyst must make several assumptions about the studied building and its users.

  4. 4. Structural Control and Identification of Civil Engineering Structures

    Författare :Tarek Edrees; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggproduktion; Construction Engineering and Management; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Sammanfattning : In general, the main purpose of a structural control system is to apply powerful control techniques that improve the behaviour of civil structures under various kinds of dynamic loading. The first part of this thesis presents novel applications of posicast and input shaping control schemes that have never previously been applied in the field of structural control. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Vehicle wakes subject to side wind conditions

    Författare :Magnus Urquhart; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; drag; surrogate model; cavity; Latin Hypercube Sampling; wake; aerodynamics; real world conditions; Proper Orthogonal Decomposition; wind averaged drag; Radial Basis Functions; side wind; optimization; tapered extensions; cycle averaged;

    Sammanfattning : Passenger vehicles are associated with travel flexibility, today it is clear that this flexibility impacts the environment. Passenger vehicles account for more than one-tenth of all greenhouse gasses in Europe with approximately a quarter of the vehicle's energy consumption wasted as aerodynamic drag. LÄS MER
