  1. 1. Achieving building energy performance requirements and evaluation methods for residential buildings in Sweden, Norway, and Finland

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ingrid Allard; Umeå universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building codes; energy performance; evaluation methods; air tightness;

    Abstract : Building energy performance has always been important in the cold climate of Sweden, Norway and Finland. To meet the goal that all new buildings should be nearly zero-energy buildings by 2020, set in the EU directive 2010/31/EU [1] on the energy performance of buildings (EPBD recast), the building sector in Europe now faces a transition towards buildings with improved energy performance.

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Bojan Stojanovic; Högskolan i Gävle.; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; lifetime performance; degradation; assessment; modelling; field exposure; thermal components and systems; Lifetime performance; thermal components and system;

    Abstract : The main questions today concerning thermal systems are their economical and environmental impacts. These entities are generally, at present, assessed on the basis of operation performances of newly installed/designed systems, during an assumed lifetime period. READ MORE

  3. 3. Efficient Memory Modeling During Simulation and Native Execution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nikos Nikoleris; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; performance analysis; cache performance; multicore performance; memory system; memory bandwidth; memory contention; performance prediction; multi-threading; multiprocessing systems; program diagnostics; commodity multicores; multithreaded program resource requirements; performance counters; scalability bottleneck; scalability improvement; Computer Science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Application performance on computer processors depends on a number of complex architectural and microarchitectural design decisions. Consequently, computer architects rely on performance modeling to improve future processors without building prototypes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Degradation mechanisms and long-term performance of PUR insulation in district heating pipes

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Alberto Vega; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mechanical performance; thermal conductivity; District heating pipe; degradation mechanisms; long-term performance; rigid polyurethane foam;

    Abstract : District heating networks are used worldwide, especially in Scandinavian countries and also in many other countries, e.g. Germany, Russia, United States, South Korea and China. From an environmental point of view, district heating networks are a good alternative to more traditional building heating systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. Single and Double Skin Glazed Office Buildings - Analyses of Energy Use and Indoor Climate

    University dissertation from Energy and Building Design, Lund University

    Author : Harris Poirazis; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal environment; indoor climate; energy use; building performance; building simulations; double skin façades; Glazed office buildings; single skin façades; thermal comfort;

    Abstract : The energy efficiency and thermal performance of highly glazed office buildings are often questioned. However, nowadays glazed buildings are increasingly being built around the world, mainly due to an architectural trend, followed by the preference of companies to a distinctive image that a glazed office building can provide.
