  2. 2. Evaluation of energy conserving measures in buildings connected to a district heating system : case studies in Gävle, Sweden

    Author : Mattias Gustafsson; Björn Karlsson; Magnus Åberg; Högskolan i Gävle; []

    Abstract : When different energy conserving measures are implemented for reducing energy use in buildings and the buildings are connected to district heating systems, it is important that an overall system analysis is made which takes into account the effects of total change of energy use due to the energy conserving measures.The method applied in this thesis uses hourly production data for the different production units in the district heating system in Gävle, Sweden.

  5. 5. Effects of environmental acoustic factors, individual differences and musical training on speech perception in simulated classrooms

    Author : Douglas MacCutcheon; Robert Ljung; Daniel Västfjäll; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; speech in noise; cognition; perception; musical training; spatial listening; virtual classroom environment; bakgrundsljud; kognition; taluppfattning; musikalisk träning; rumsligt lyssnande; virtuella klassrumsmiljöer; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Formal learning takes place primarily through speech perception in classroom environments and is therefore dependent on the listener’s ability to cope with a number of acoustic factors that interfere with the speech signal. As classrooms are inclusive spaces accommodating learners with a broad range of abilities and backgrounds, this research investigated some of the ways in which individual differences in supporting cognitive skills are related to speech perception outcomes in various challenging acoustic environments.
