  1. 1. The Karma of Products Exploring the Causality of Environmental Pressure with Causal Loop Diagram and Environmental Footprint

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rafael Laurenti; Björn Frostell; Andrius Plepys; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Products; Environmental Pressure; Causal Loop Diagram; Environmental Footprint; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : Environmental pressures from consumer products and mechanisms of predetermination were examined in this thesis using causal loop diagram (CLD) and life cycle assessment (LCA) footprinting to respectively illustrate and provide some indicators about these mechanisms. Theoretical arguments and their practical implications were subjected to qualitative and quantitative analysis, using secondary and primary data. READ MORE

  2. 2. Making Possible by Making Visible Learning through Visual Representations in Social Science

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Humanities and Social Sciences Education, Stockholm University

    Author : Ann-Sofie Jägerskog; Cecilia Lundholm; Peter Davies; Magnus Hultén; [2020]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; social science teaching; visual representation; pricing; causal relationships; teaching and learning; phenomenography; variation theory; practice theory; teaching-learning practice; epistemic practices; upper secondary school; design research; graphs; economics; social studies; ämnesdidaktik med inriktning mot de samhällsvetenskapliga ämnenas didaktik; Teaching and Learning with Specialisation in the Social Sciences Education;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses upon the relationship between teaching and learning of dynamic phenomena and processes in social science and the use of visual representations in social science teaching. Teaching in social science uses many visual representations, such as models, flowcharts and diagrams, in order to help students to grasp phenomena, structures and processes in society. READ MORE

  3. 3. Industrial Ecology Approaches to Improve Metal Management Three Modeling Experiments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rajib Sinha; Björn Frostell; Maria Malmström; Amir Rashid; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; system dynamics; element flow analysis; industrial ecology; product systems; end-of-life; DPSIR; pressure-based driver-oriented approach; environmental management; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology;

    Abstract : A linear model of consumption − produce-use-dispose − has constantly increased the pressure on the environment in recent decades. There has been a great belief that technology will solve the problem, but in many cases it is only partly contributing to the solution. For a full solution, the root causes of problems need to be identified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developing Methods for Modelling Procedures in System Analysis and System Dynamics

    University dissertation from Department of Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Hördur Haraldsson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; System Dynamics; System Analysis; group model building; modelling procedures; innovation phases; modelling workflow; Natural science; Naturvetenskap; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Abstract : System Thinking is the mindset of defining and confining a problem and its symptoms as well as a method for communicating system understanding. System Analysis is taking that problem apart to understand its causalities and structural arrangement. READ MORE
