  1. 1. Transport, Built Environment and Development Control : A comparative urban study

    Author : Karin Book; Lena Eskilsson; Institutionen för kulturgeografi och ekonomisk geografi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; urban development; land use; development control; built environment; transport;

    Abstract : Improved transport possibilities give rise to changes in land use; settlement patterns and activity structures and likewise the spatial distribution of different activities form the basis of transport need. Transport structure and built environment influence one another, and in order to be able to develop better urban policy it is important to be aware of the relations between them. READ MORE

  3. 3. The changing role and importance of the built environment for daily travel in Sweden

    Author : Erik Elldér; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; built environment; travel; distance; daily; commuting; telework; residential location; Sweden; activities; mobility; spatiotemporal constraints;

    Abstract : Geography, in terms of the built environment and location patterns, was traditionally, and still is, emphasized by many scholars, policymakers, and planners as greatly influencing people’s daily travel behaviour. However, taking recent decades of rapidly increasing mobility capabilities (physical as well as virtual) into account, and the related increase in individual choice opportunities, others argue that the importance of geographic factors has gradually dissolved.

  4. 4. Model and Reality : Connecting BIM and the Built Environment

    Author : Gustaf Uggla; Milan Horemuz; Patric Jansson; Väino Tarandi; Alojz Kopáčik; KTH; []

    Abstract : The adoption of building information modeling (BIM) in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry is changing the way informa-tion regarding the built environment is created, stored, and exchanged. In short, documents are replaced with databases, processes are automated, and timelines become more circular with an emphasis on managing the life cycles of all manufactured objects. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microclimate measurements in the built environment

    Author : Peter Norberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Surface moisture plays an important role in thedeterioration of building surfaces. The extent and duration ofsurface moisture is generally impossible to predictfrommeteorological data and consequently direct measurement ofthis quantity is essential,e.g. using the WETCORR method.
