  1. 1. An Approach Towards Sustainable Building

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Navid Gohardani; KTH.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sustainability; Built environment; Sustainable renovation; High-efficient insulation materials; Sweden Green Building Council; Vacuum Insulation Panels VIP ; Decision making; GreenBuilding; Early stage; Stakeholders; A Concept for promotion of sustainable retrofitting and renovation in Early Stages ACES ; Early Stage Primary Energy Estimation Tool ESPEET ;

    Sammanfattning : The motivation for development of energy efficiency and implementation of novel advanced materials applied in buildings can be traced to increasing energy costs in conjunction with an enhanced environmental awareness among people. This doctoral dissertation presents contributions towards sustainable building, where factors such as building technology, energy efficiency in buildings, workers' health issues during construction measures, and certain economic considerations for renovation of buildings have been considered.

  2. 2. Safety in Case of Fire - The Effect of Changing Regulations

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Fire Safety Engineering and Systems Safety, Lund University

    Författare :Johan Lundin; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technological sciences; verification; risk analysis; uncertainty; prescriptive; risk control; building regulation; Performance-based; fire safety engineering; Teknik; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Sammanfattning : In this doctoral thesis some fundamental problems concerning society's ability to control the safety in buildings in the case of fire by issuing performance-based building regulations are identified and analysed. Fire protection documentation from forty-six projects was studied, together with a detailed analysis of the Swedish building regulations and an extensive risk analysis of a class of buildings.

    Sammanfattning : Today many professional property holders use different types of software for monthly energy analyses. The data is however often limited to energy and water use, that is paid for by the property holder. In year 2001, financed by the Swedish Energy Agency, the first steps were taken to create a national web based data base, eNyckeln. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Energy Efficiency in Residential Buildings in Mozambique - Measurements and Simulations

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Building Science, Lund University

    Författare :Gabriel Auziane; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy; Building; Measurements; Simulations; DEROB-LTH; Mozambique; Subtropical and Tropical climates; Energy efficiency; PV system; Electrical energy savings.;

    Sammanfattning : Popular Abstract in English Energy savings and climate change mitigation have been discussed in the world since the oil crisis in the 1970s and the building sector has been seen as one of the largest contributors to global warming effects in the world. Energy efficiency in buildings is a critical issue to be addressed in order to reduce electricity energy used in buildings and is one of the main tasks that is developed within the program Advancing Sustainable Construction in Mozambique.

  5. 5. Investigating Dwellings' Response to Heating Power Cuts : Simulations and Field Tests

    Detta är en avhandling från Division of Building Science, Lund University

    Författare :Victor Fransson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017-04-07]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : Reducing energy use, increasing the use of renewable energy sources, and adapting to stricter building regulations and certification systems – these are all examples of the challenges facing the building industry and society. Looking at the energy supply at a larger scale than a single building, like a neighborhood or a city, the stack effect of peak power demands can cause problems on the production side, either economical or concerning the environment and greenhouse gases when fossil fuel is used to cover these peaks.
