  1. 1. Heat Flow in Building Components, Experiment and Analysis

    Author : Petter Wallentén; Institutioner vid LTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; radiation exchange; longwave; shortwave; transient; frequency analysis; finite difference; measurements; wall; window; heat transfer coefficient; convective; full scale; natural climate; in situ; counter flow insulation; heat transfer; dynamic insulation; temperature; building; solar radiation; window model; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Three building components exposed to natural climate were studied: a dynamic insulation in the ceiling of a house, an outer wall and one window in the same wall. The term dynamic insulation implies that part of the inlet or exhaust air passes through the insulation of a house. READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy Efficient Window Systems. Effects on Energy Use and Daylight in Buildings

  3. 3. Planning for Solar Buildings in Urban Environments

    Author : Jouri Kanters; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture; design tool; design process; solar energy; urban planning; photovoltaics; solar thermal; building integration; density; net zero energy buildings; interviews; parametric studies; action research;

    Abstract : Energy use in buildings accounts for a significant proportion of the total energy use in many countries. While past and current buildings have solely been energy consumers, future buildings will, besides using less energy, also need to produce (part of ) the required energy on site with renewables.

  4. 4. Optical Design for Stationary Solar Concentrators

    Author : Johan Nilsson; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; photovoltaic cells; parabolic reflectors; optical efficiency; Solar concentrators; photovoltaic-thermal systems; non-imaging optics; optical properties; building integrated photovoltaics; non uniform irradiance distribution; structured reflectors; solar cell modelling; ray tracing;

    Abstract : Solar electricity is one of the most promising technologies for our future electricity supply. By using concentrators, it is possible to reduce the cost of generating photovoltaic electricity. This thesis discusses how to design stationary low concentrating systems for photovoltaic or PV/Thermal applications. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lifetime Performance Assessment of Thermal Systems : Studies on Building, Solar and Disctrict Heating Applications

    Author : Bojan Stojanovic; Christer Sjöström; Per Jostein Hovde; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lifetime performance; degradation; assessment; modelling; field exposure; thermal components and system; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; lifetime performance; thermal components and systems;

    Abstract : The main questions today concerning thermal systems are their economical and environmental impacts. These entities are generally, at present, assessed on the basis of operation performances of newly installed/designed systems, during an assumed lifetime period. READ MORE
