  1. 1. Efficiency factors for space heating system in buildings

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Christian Brembilla; Umeå universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Efficiency factors of space heating; hydronic panel radiator; hydronic floor heating; multilayer wall; numerical modelling; room control volume; decrement factor; time delay; heat conduction; heat convection; heat radiation; heat storage; thermal inertia; Euler solver; Newton-Raphson method; synthetic weather file; feedback and feed-forward control strategies; adaptive control; validation methodology; uncertainty bands; robustness of model predictions; thermostatic booth simulator; differential sensitivity analysis; transient model of panel radiator with multiple storage elements; active thermal mass; benchmark performance indicator; linear regression model; calibration through uncertainty bands; hybrid model of low-energy building: law driven data driven; outdoor temperature compensation heating curve; solar radiation model; finite difference method; heat equation;

    Abstract : The thesis focuses on the efficiency of the space heating system. In particular, the efficiency factors measure the efficiency of thermal zone. The efficiency factors measures how the energy is used in a space heating. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biological growth on rendered façades

    University dissertation from Lund University, Division of Building Materials

    Author : Sanne Johansson; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; temperature; render; radiation; photosynthesis; moulds; mosses; mortar; moisture; lichens; Imaging-PAM; humidity; heat capacity; heat; ETICS; algae; biological growth; calorimetry; desiccation tolerance;

    Abstract : Biological organisms have an incredible ability to adapt to almost any environment and the humans activities on earth have created many new habitats for different kinds of organisms. For example can certain organisms grow on rocks and vertical cliffs, and when humans started building houses with mineral based façades, some organisms found that these were new habitats to live on.

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

    University dissertation from Department of Building Science, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Petter Wallentén; [1998]
    Keywords : 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

  4. 4. Radiation response in human cells DNA damage formation, repair and signaling

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Ann-Sofie Gustafsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA damage; DNA repair; DSB; NHEJ; DNA-PK; ionizing radiation; heat-labile sites; Biomedical Radiation Science; Biomedicinsk strålningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Ionizing radiation induces a range of different DNA lesions. In terms of mutation frequency and mammalian cell survival, the most critical of these lesions is the DNA double-strand break (DSB). DSB left unrepaired or mis-repaired may result in chromosomal aberrations that can lead to permanent genetic changes or cell death. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heat Transfer and Energy Efficiency in Infrared Paper Dryers

    University dissertation from Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Pettersson; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; experimental; modelling; electricity; gas; efficiency; energy; drying; dryer; heat transfer; radiation; paper; infrared; IR; coating; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : Infrared (IR) dryers are widely used in the paper industry, mainly in the production of coated paper grades. The thesis deals with various aspects of heat transfer and energy use in infrared heaters and dryers as employed in the paper industry. Both gas-fired and electric IR dryers are considered and compared. READ MORE
