  2. 17. Performance of Energy Efficient Windows and Solar Shading Devices

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Tobias Rosencrantz; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This Licentiate dissertation deals with windows and solar shading devices and how they could be designed and used to save energy for heating and cooling in buildings. Parametric studies using the dynamic energy simulation software ParaSol v 2.0 were performed for different windows and solar shading devices. READ MORE

  3. 18. Utilizing solar energy for anti-icing road surfaces using hydronic heating pavement with low temperature

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Raheb Mirzanamadi; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; solar energy; asphalt concrete; ground heat exchanger; anti-icing; optimization;

    Abstract : During summer, the surface temperature of an asphalt road pavement can rise up to 70°C due to absorbed solar radiation. The high temperature degrades the performance of the asphalt concrete by accelerating the thermal oxidation and plastic deformation, especially under heavy traffic loads. READ MORE

  4. 19. Enhanced Energy Efficiency and Preservation of Historic Buildings Methods and Tools for Modeling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Torun Widström; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy efficiency; preservation; historic buildings; building simulation;

    Abstract : As the environmental impacts of the energy usage of the world today becomes more and more evident, enhancement of energy performance of the already existing building stock becomes more urgent. Buildings belonging to the cultural heritage are often the ones that are most difficult to deal with in this context. READ MORE

  5. 20. Radiation properties of coil-coated steel in building envelope surfaces and the influence on building thermal performance

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Mohammad Ali Joudi; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy; Forests and Built Environments; Energi; skog och byggd miljö;

    Abstract : Recent studies have shown that the optical properties of building exterior surfaces are important in terms of energy use and thermal comfort. While the majority of the studies are related to exterior surfaces, the radiation properties of interior surfaces are less thoroughly investigated. READ MORE
