  1. 1. Antenna-based passive UHF RFID sensor tags : Design and application

    Author : Jinlan Gao; Hans-Erik Nilsson; Johan Sidén; Emmanouil Tentzeris; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER;

    Abstract : RFID, as a low cost technology with a long life time, provides great potential for transmitting sensor data in combination with the ordinary ID number. The sensor can, for example, be integrated either in the chip or in the antenna of an RFID tag. READ MORE

  2. 2. Improvement of Thermal Comfort in Buildings through Passive Design

    Author : Marcelino Januário Rodrigues; Byggnadskonstruktion; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Buildings; Sustainability; Energy Efficiency; Passive Design; Orientation; Shading; Ventilation; Materials; Temperatures; Thermal Comfort; Simulations; Retrofitting; Hot Humid Regions.;

    Abstract : In hot humid regions the high outdoor temperature has negative effects on the indoor temperature of buildings that are not designed to cope with the local climate. This leads to discomfort for the occupants. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optimization and Physical Bounds for Passive and Non-passive Systems

    Author : Yevhen Ivanenko; Sven Nordebo; Börje Nilsson; Mats Gustafsson; Mariana Dalarsson; Aaron Welters; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Convex optimization; physical bounds; Herglotz functions; quasi-Herglotz functions; passive systems; non-passive systems; approximation; absorption in lossy media; Waves and Signals; Vågor och signaler;

    Abstract : Physical bounds in electromagnetic field theory have been of interest for more than a decade. Considering electromagnetic structures from the system theory perspective, as systems satisfying linearity, time-invariance, causality and passivity, it is possible to characterize their transfer functions via Herglotz functions.

  4. 4. On conceptual design reliability : an approach for identification of potential failures

    Author : Micael Derelöv; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Conceptual Design; Potential Failure; Evaluation; Reliability; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis is the result of research in the area of Evaluation and Decision-Making in the Design Process. It examines how to support and facilitate the evaluation activities in the design process in order to create a more solid foundation on which to base design decisions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Passive houses in Sweden - Experiences from design and construction

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

    Abstract : The sector of residential buildings and service organizations uses 36% of the total energy in Sweden. In June 2006, it was decided by the Swedish parliament that the energy use in residential buildings and premises should decrease by 20% per heated unit area before 2020. READ MORE
