  1. 1. Risk Assessment of Hygrothermal Performance - Building Envelope Retrofit

    Author : Simon Pallin; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; retrofit; Risk; hygrothermal; simulations.; residential; mold; energy savings;

    Abstract : A risk assessment of the hygrothermal performance for a building envelope retrofit investigates possible variations in energy performance, indoor environment quality and moisture safety and elaborates on the risks of exceeding defined acceptance criteria. These risks can be properly determined if including the variability of, by the investigated retrofit, most influencing parameters. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural health of bridges monitor, assess and retrofit

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Arvid Hejll; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The research presented in this Licentiate thesis is intended to cover minor areas of the wide research area Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of Civil Engineering Structures. SHM is broadly the knowledge maintaining our infrastructure by assessing the condition, often by monitoring or measurements, diagnose damages, analyse risk levels, by using inputs from measurements and diagnoses, and in the end retrofit, if needed.

  3. 3. New refrigerants for vapour compression refrigeration and heat pump systems : evaluation in a context of the requirements set by the F-gas Regulation and the Paris Agreement goals

    University dissertation from Universitetsservice US-AB

    Author : Pavel Makhnatch; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; refrigerant; retrofit; drop-in; HFC; HFO; F-gas Regulation; Kigali Amendment; Montreal protocol; Life cycle climate performance; LCCP; climate change; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Given the global commitment to reduce the impact of fluorinated gases on climate and the regulations controlling their use in the European Union (EU), this thesis investigates new refrigerants that have been recently proposed to meet the demands of the refrigeration industry in the EU, which must satisfy the legislative requirements of the F-gas Regulation and facilitate meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement.The legislative requirements of the EU have intensified refrigerant development with reduced GWP.

  4. 4. Vibration mitigation of high-speed railway bridges Application of fluid viscous dampers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sarah Tell; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dynamics; vibration mitigation; railway bridge; high-speed trains; bridge deck acceleration; passive damping; fluid viscous dampers; retrofit; dynamik; vibrationsdämpning; järnvägsbro; höghastighetståg; brobaneacceleration; passiv dämpning; viskösa dämpare; eftermontering; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : At the moment of writing, an expansion of the Swedish railway network has started, by constructions of new lines for high-speed trains. The aim is to create a high-speed connection between the most populous cities in Sweden - Stockholm, Göteborg and Malmö, and the rest of Europe. READ MORE

  5. 5. Novel Approaches for Retrofitting Heat Exchanger Networks Subject to Varying Operating Conditions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Christian Langner; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy Efficiency; Process Industry; Flexibility; Critical Points; Retrofit; Multi-Period Optimization; Heat Integration; Feasibility;

    Abstract : The process industry is responsible for a significant share of the final industrial energy use in Sweden. In particular, the pulp and paper industry accounts for more than 50 %. In this context, a number of studies have shown that there is a substantial potential for energy savings in the pulp and paper industry. READ MORE
