  1. 1. A blueprint for sustainable consumption and design including performance requirements

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Martin Erlandsson; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : A Sustainable Consumption Evaluation(SCE) system framework is developed which is based on anextension of current LCA methodology. The SCE system results inEnvironmental Performance Requirements(EPR's) as the key means for its implementation insustainable design that can be used for product orproduct-service system benchmarking, monitoring and evaluation.

  2. 2. Developments in Ground Heat Storage Modeling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alberto Lazzarotto; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Borehole fields; g-functions; network; inclined; integrated design; Energiteknik; Energy Technology; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Ground heat storage systems can play an important role for the reduction of green house gases emissions by increasing the exploitation of renewable energy sources and “waste heat” with a consequent diminution of the use of fossil fuels.A ground heat storage consists in an array of vertical boreholes placed in such a way that promotes the mutual thermal interaction between the ground heat exchangers creating the necessary conditions required to effectively store and retrieve heat.

  3. 3. Integrated decision making in civil engineering, based on multi-criteria assessment and buildings’ certification

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Milena Medineckiene; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction; renovation; MCDM; certification; sustainability; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Significant investments are being made in the construction sector in order to raise the quality of the buildings and make them more sustainable and energy-efficient. The key aspect of these investments should be the purposeful optimization of the possible renovation and construction measures. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Future of Smart Road Infrastructure : A Case Study for the eRoad

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Feng Chen; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : In the future, physical roads will not only serve for the mobility of the vehicles but also have the capability of enabling different smart functionalities, such as car2road communication, energy harvesting or dynamic charging of electrical vehicles. To ensure the sustainability of these advances, the environmental, economic and social costs for the road infrastructure itself should not offset its possible advances. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reliability-based Design Procedure for Flexible Pavements

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Yared Hailegiorgis Dinegdae; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Top-Down fatigue cracking; asphalt mixture morphology; fracture mechanics; response surface; reliability analysis; load resistance factor design; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Load induced top-down fatigue cracking has been recognized recently as a major distress phenomenon in asphalt pavements. This failure mode has been observed in many parts of the world, and in some regions, it was found to be more prevalent and a primary cause of pavements failure. READ MORE
