    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Building manufacturing engineering; Byggproduktionsteknik; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The use of Phase Change Material, PCM, to change the thermal inertia of lightweight buildings is investigated in the CRAFT project C-TIDE. It is a joint project with Italian and Swedish partners, representing both industry and research. PCMs are materials where the phase change enthalpy can be used for thermal storage. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modularity in industrialised timber housing : a lean approach to develop building service systems

    Author : Martin Lennartsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : Modularity has been applied in various disciplines, e.g. manufacturing, computer, cognitive science and education. General advantages are platform thinking and module variants which provide a range of product variants using a small number of components. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards sustainability with building services systems : – by focusing on material choices, energy use and thermal indoor climates in residential buildings

    Author : Mats Dahlblom; Avdelningen för Installations- och klimatiseringslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; residential apartment buildings; building services systems; energy use; hvac; hydronic heating system; heating control; feedback control loop; indoor temperature measurements; individual metering and billing; indoor temperature variations; thermal comfort; vertical temperature gradient; case study;

    Abstract : For a development to be considered sustainable, social, economic and environmental requirements must be met. The Swedish sustainable development goals, based on Agenda 2030, contain 16 national environmental quality goals. The National Board of Housing, Building and Planning is responsible for achieving the goal "A good built environment". READ MORE

  5. 5. Concentration Difficulties in the School Environment - with focus on children with ADHD, Autism and Down's syndrome

    Author : Catrin Tufvesson; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Down s syndrome; concentration; children; building process; ADHD; the Human Environment Interaction-model; individual adjusment; learning; indoor environment; school environment; Psykologi; Psychology; Humanities; Humaniora; autism;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to identify environmental factors that affect children with ADHD, autism, and Down's syndrome and their ability to concentrate in their learning environment at school. The issue of this research is not to dismiss any of the additional resources these children are in need of; instead it is to suggest how to arrange learning environments in the most supportive way possible based on the initial needs of these children.
