  1. 1. Energy Use and Environmental Impact of New Residential Buildings

    Author : Karin Adalberth; Avdelningen för Byggnadsfysik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle; environmental impact; energy demand; energy use; multi-family building; single-unit dwelling; building; residential building; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis is to investigate the energy use and environmental impact of residential buildings. Seven authentic buildings built in the 1990s in Sweden are investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Determination of Material Properties for Fire Modelling

    Author : Ulf Göransson; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material properties; Material degradation; Measurements; Fire test data; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; Teknik; Technological sciences; Fire; Surface temperature; Mathematical modelling;

    Abstract : Fire and flame spread are very complex phenomenon to study. Several aspects need to be considered and treated. In order to be able to do a correct analysis of the flame spread phenomenon, which is necessary to be able to predict flame spread, knowledge of material properties are needed. Material properties can be obtained in different ways. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Environmental Informatics for Building Stocks. A Conceptual Model for an Environmental Building Stock Information System for Sustainable Development - EBSIS

    Author : Liane Thuvander; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building stock; information system; environmental system analysis; energy flows; building stock information system; material flows; environmental informatics; urban system analysis; environment; sustainable sevelopment;

    Abstract : The Swedish building sector uses a considerable amount of all materials and all energy used in Sweden. Knowledge about the existing building stock, its impact on the environment related to the use of material and energy, however, is limited and target settings for environmental objectives and decision making are based on vague information.

  4. 4. Modeling the effects of knots in Structural Timber

    Author : Christina Foley; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material technology; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; three-dimensional fiber paradigm; fiber deviation; knots; annual growth layer; material matrix; knot bump; structural timber; load carrying capacity; Materiallära; critical knot; knot distance ratio; local principal material directions; stiffness; materialteknik;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the pursued research is to increase knowledge of the effects of knots in structural timber so that characteristics of weaker timber may be determined and applied to improve current grading techniques. In the process, a three-dimensional fiber paradigm was established, which describes variations of local principle material axes in timber containing knots. READ MORE
