    Abstract : This thesis is an investigation into how meta-heuristic multi-objective optimisation processes (genetic algorithms driven by evolutionary solvers) can bring about materials-related advantages in architectural performance. It redefines the architect’s and engineer’s role from being designers of a singular space or structure to being designers of entire species of spaces, and discusses a particular method – anticipatory adaptive assemblages (AAA) – that allows such processes to produce many generations of design iterations that eventually yield individuals optimised for a set of predefined objectives.

  2. 2. National environmental evaluation systems : guiding towards sustainability?

    Author : Magnus Larsson; Anders Hanberger; Katarina Eckerberg; Daniel Larsson; Per Mickwitz; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; environmental evaluation; evaluation systems; evaluation use; sustainable development; program theory; stakeholders; environmental policy;

    Abstract : Background: Dealing with environmental threats is one of the largest, if not the largest, challenge contemporary societies face. One way to better deal with this challenge would be to produce knowledge that can be used to improve environmental work and environmental policy and thus ultimately contribute to sustainable development.

  3. 3. Methods to Improve V2V Communications in Platoons of Heavy Duty Vehicles

    Author : Marcus Larsson; Magnus Jonsson; Tony Larsson; Elad Schiller; Högskolan i Halmstad; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : In the coming years V2V communications will probably be mandated and vehicle OEMs strive to find business opportunities to finance its investments in V2V communications technology. For heavy vehicles, platooning can be this business opportunity, with the motivation for the fleet owners that platooning can decrease the fuel consumption by up to 15 % when driving in platoons.

  4. 4. Contacts and Trade at Late Bronze Age Hazor : Aspects of Intercultural Relationships and Identity in the Eastern Mediterranean

    Author : Kristina Josephson Hesse; Thomas B. Larsson; Amnon Ben-Tor; Bozena Werbart; Magnus Ottosson; Thomas Larsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Hazor; Canaan; Eastern Mediterranean; Late Bronze Age; contacts; trade; temple architecture; Mycenaean pottery; Cypriote pottery; interregional interaction networks; emulation; peer polity interaction; centre-periphery approach; Archaeology; Non-European; Arkeologi; utomeuropeisk; Archaeology; Arkeologi; Near Eastern Archaeology; Mediterranean Archaeology; Archaeology; Arkeologi;

    Abstract : Hazor’s role in an international Late Bronze Age context has long been indicated but never thoroughly investigated. This role, I believe, was more crucial than previously stressed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Conflict and Compromise : An Evolutionary Framework for the Design of Multi-Storey Timber Buildings

    Author : Magnus Larsson; Unit 108B Ordinary Ltd London 8 Andrews Road Regent Studios Unit 3A/4A Ordinary Ltd; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : In January 1995, the architect John Frazer’s groundbreaking study, An Evolutionary Architecture, was published to coincide with an exhibition of the same name at the Architectural Association in London. The book proposed a new methodology for the architectural design process, based on a radical repositioning of the role of the architect. READ MORE
