  1. 1. Healing Architecture: Evidence, Intuition, Dialogue

    Author : Stefan Lundin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; EBD; intuition; critical approach; best practice; design dialogue; tacit knowledge; healing architecture; Design research in architecture; evidence-based design;

    Abstract : In today’s healthcare architecture there is a striving to make better use of evidence to achieve environments that can contribute to patients’ healing, recovery, and well-being. These ideas are in part a legacy of the theory and practice of evidence-based medicine and the success it has enjoyed in its field. READ MORE

  2. 2. Passive Houses in Sweden. From Design to Evaluation of Four Demonstration Projects

    Author : Ulla Janson; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Planning process; Energy efficiency; Passive house; Buildingconstruction; Residential buildings; Ventilation;

    Abstract : The use of energy is a major global issue both according to climate changes but also in the aspect of national safety tied to the trade with energy sources. Of the total energy use in the member states of the European Union, about 40% is used in residential and commercial buildings. READ MORE

  3. 3. Calculation and Measurement Methods for the Performance of Solar Collectors. Models of Flat Plate Collectors, Transparent Insulation and Efficiency Factors

    Author : Bengt Hellström; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transparent insulation; Test method; Calculation method; Concentrating collector; Efficiency factor; Fin efficiency; Flat plate collector; Heat conductivity; Honeycomb; Measurement method; Performance; Solar transmittance; Solar collector; Collector model; Energy research; Energiforskning;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with models of flat plate collectors, transparent insulation and efficiency factors. An equation for the energy output from a glazed flat plate collector is derived by modelling the collector efficiency factor, F´ as the sum of a constant and a temperature dependent part. READ MORE

  4. 4. Discourses of Including Students with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties (EBD) in Swedish Mainstream Schools

    Author : Ulrika Gidlund; Lena Boström; Jimmy Jaldemark; Liv Lassen; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; emotional and behavioural difficulties; focus group interviews; inclusion; inclusive didactics; Laclau and Mouffe’s discourse theory; mainstream schools; teachers’ discourses;

    Abstract : When students’ behaviours cause difficulties for their teachers, themselves, and the rest of the class, teachers often construct inclusion as problematic. The overall aim of this study was to contribute to the understanding of teachers’ discourses regarding inclusion of students with emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD) in Swedish mainstream schools.

  5. 5. Planning for Solar Buildings in Urban Environments

    Author : Jouri Kanters; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture; design tool; design process; solar energy; urban planning; photovoltaics; solar thermal; building integration; density; net zero energy buildings; interviews; parametric studies; action research;

    Abstract : Energy use in buildings accounts for a significant proportion of the total energy use in many countries. While past and current buildings have solely been energy consumers, future buildings will, besides using less energy, also need to produce (part of ) the required energy on site with renewables.
