  1. 1. NOUR - Daylighting and thermal effects of windows in desert houses

    University dissertation from Architecture & Development Studies, Lund University

    Author : Djamel Ouahrani; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal simulation; Solar aspects; Housing architecture; Ghardaia; Desert; Daylighting simulation; Daylighting; Data collecting; Data analysis; Culture; Climate adaption; Algeria; Architecture; Traditional architecture; Windows; interior design; Arkitektur; inredningsarkitektur;

    Abstract : This study is on a combined effect of window, the daylighting and the thermal effects, in desert houses. It is comprised of two complementary studies. In the introduction a historical review on the development of use daylight has been carried out in order to place the case study in a historical perspective. READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Lund University, Lund Institute of Technology, Division of Energy and Building Design, P.O. Box 118, SE-221 00 LUND, Sweden

    Author : Helena Bülow-Hübe; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; simulation; thermal transmittance; solar energy transmittance; shading device; solar protection; cooling; heating; energy demand; building; low-emittance coating; window; glazing; comfort; user aspects; operative temperature; Architecture; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik; daylight; perception; interior design; Arkitektur; inredningsarkitektur; Energy research; Energiforskning;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Denna avhandling handlar om energieffektiva fönstersystem i svenska byggnader. Simuleringar av energianvändningen har gjorts för både småhus och kontor för att bedöma effekterna av olika fönsterval på energibehov och inneklimat. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lighting Control Systems to Save Energy in the non-Residential Sector : State-of-the-art, Field Studies, and Simulations

    University dissertation from Division of Energy and Building Design

    Author : Niko Gentile; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017-10-27]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Indoor lighting; lighting control system; lighting control; energy sav; energy eff; user acceptan; degree of acceptance; human factor; occupancy strategy; presence strategy; absence strategy; daylight harvesting; daylight-linked; daylight; photoelectric dimming; photosensor; manual switch; functional illumination; standby;

    Abstract : This thesis examines the energy-saving potential for lighting when using traditional indoor LCSs in non-residential buildings. In the study, an overarching theoretical framework is used that distinguishes between energy efficiency and energy saving, as well as between energy use for lighting and functional illumination.

  4. 4. Daylight Influence on Colour Design Empirical Study on Perceived Colour and Colour Experience Indoors

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Maud Hårleman; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture; interior colouring; spatial character; natural daylight; verbal description; colour reference box; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Architecture and architectural conservation and restoration Architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Arkitektur och bebyggelsevård Arkitektur;

    Abstract : It is known that one and the same interior colouring will appear different in rooms with windows facing north or facing south, but it is not known how natural daylight from these two compass points affects perceived colour and the ways in which colour is experienced. The objective is to describe the perceived colours to be expected in rooms with sunlight and diffused light, and thus develop a tool for colour design. READ MORE

  5. 5. Energy Savings by Using Daylight for Basic Urban Shapes With a Case Study of Three Different Street Types

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Bengt Sundborg; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; daylight; energy; climate; urban design principles; urban pattern; street grid; Architecture; Arkitektur;

    Abstract : During winter the sun is in short supply. But research at KTH shows that solar radiation can be facilitated while energy consumption for lighting is reduced. This provided that the buildings are appropriately designed. But, unfortunately, the sunlight is often not taken into account and the results are the opposite. READ MORE
