  1. 1. Testing large samples of PCM in water calorimeter and PCM used in room applications by night-air cooling

    Author : Rickard Bellander; Ove Söderström; Gudni Jóhannesson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; phase-change material; PCM; water calorimeter; air heat exchanger; durability; thermal properties; heat capacity; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The latent-heat-storage capacity in Phase-Change Materials can be used for storing or releasing energy within a small temperature interval. Upon the phase transition taking place in a narrow temperature span, the material takes up or releases more energy compared to sensible heat storage. READ MORE

  2. 2. Efficient production of high-rise buildings

    Author : Hanif Hoseini; Gudni Jóhannesson; Bertil Fredlund; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Production of one family houses has over time developed successfully in Sweden and producers have managed to reduce the production costs and industrialize the production process. The development has however not been that successful when it comes to high-rise buildings. READ MORE

  3. 3. Airborne sound insulation of single and double plate constructions

    Author : Ulrica Kernen; Gudni Jóhannesson; Waldemar Maysenhölder; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Construction engineering; : Airborne sound insulation; single plate; double plate; floating-floor; sound reduction index; sound transmission.; Byggnadsteknik; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The sound insulation demands for dwellings and public building has increased over the years as the number of sound sources has grown. From the outside our homes are exposed to noise from cars, trains, airplanes, etc. Noise intrudes from our neighbours and their television and stereo equipments. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exergy Analysis in Buildings : A complementary approach to energy analysis

    Author : Marco Molinari; Folke Björk; Gudni Jóhannesson; Ivo Martinac; KTH; []
    Keywords : Exergy; Energy; Building systems performance; Built environment.;

    Abstract : Though mandatory to be pursued, improved energy efficiency is not the only target to reach. The quality of energy has to be assessed as well. Most of the overall energy use in residential building is for low temperature heat, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exergy and Parametric Analysis: Methods and Concepts for a Sustainable Built Environment

    Author : Marco Molinari; Folke Björk; Gudni Johannesson; Bjarne W. Olesen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER;

    Abstract : Energy use in the world is continuously increasing. In the last 30 years the use of primary energy worldwide has more than doubled and it is mainly supplied with fossil fuels. A more efficient use of energy in the built environment has to be pursued if a more sustainable development is to be attained. READ MORE
