  1. 1. Cold exposure and thermal comfort among patients in prehospital emergency care innovation research in nursing

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Jonas Aléx; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; thermal comfort; thermal discomfort; cold exposure; cold stress; hypothermia; patients’ experiences; active warming; prehospital emergency care; finger temperature; back temperature; omvårdnadsforskning med medicinsk inriktning; Caring Sciences;

    Sammanfattning : BackgroundPatients’ cold exposure is a neglected problem in prehospital emergency care. Cold stress increases pain and anxiety and contributes to fear and an overall sense of dissatisfaction. When left untreated, cold stress disturbs vital body functions until ultimately reaches hypothermia. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Extensive green roofs in Porto Alegre, Brazil : Effect on indoor thermal comfort in residential buildings

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Lund University

    Författare :Lisandra Fachinello Krebs; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2018-11-07]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Architecture; Computer simulations; Extensive green roofs; Housing projects; Indoor thermal comfort; Leaf area index; Microclimate; Social housing; Sustainability; Thermal comfort;

    Sammanfattning : Brazil had a significant quantitative housing deficit of 7.7 million residences in 2015, especially in low-income housing. Traditionally, these projects have low levels of thermal insulation which can result in discomfort caused by warmth or cold. The residential sector is responsible for a significant part of the energy use in Brazil. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Improvement of Thermal Comfort in Buildings through Passive Design

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Buildings; Sustainability; Energy Efficiency; Passive Design; Orientation; Shading; Ventilation; Materials; Temperatures; Thermal Comfort; Simulations; Retrofitting; Hot Humid Regions.;

    Sammanfattning : In hot humid regions the high outdoor temperature has negative effects on the indoor temperature of buildings that are not designed to cope with the local climate. This leads to discomfort for the occupants. LÄS MER

  4. 4. A Sociological Approach to Indoor Environment in Dwellings Risk factors for Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) and Discomfort

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Karin Engvall; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; Indoor environment; Questionnaire; Atopy; Building age; Indoor air quality; Sick building syndrome SBS ; Validation; Dwelling; Energy conservation; Mechanical ventilation; Building dampness; Building reconstruction; Wood heating; Electric heating; Heat pump; Thermal Insulation; Sealing; Medicin; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; arbets- och miljömedicin; Occupational and Environmental Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : The principal aim was to study selected aspects of indoor environment in dwellings and their association with symptoms compatible with the sick building syndrome (SBS). A validated questionnaire was developed specifically for residential indoor investigations, using sociological principles and test procedures. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Technical solutions for low-temperature heat emission in buildings

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

    Författare :Adnan Ploskic; KTH.; [2013]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Analytical and numerical modeling; baseboard skirting heating; building energy performance; computational fluid dynamics CFD ; heat transfer; low-temperature heating; space heating; thermal comfort; Järnvägsgruppen - Effektiva tågsystem för godstrafik; Järnvägsgruppen - Effektiva tågsystem för godstrafik;

    Sammanfattning : The European Union is planning to greatly decrease energy consumption during the coming decades. The ultimate goal is to create sustainable communities that are energy neutral. One way of achieving this challenging goal may be to use efficient hydronic (water-based) heating systems supported by heat pumps. LÄS MER
