  1. 1. Integrated life cycle design : application to concrete multi-dwelling buildings

    Author : Mats Öberg; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; projektering; fallstudier; hållbar utveckling; kostnader; betongkonstruktioner; materialval; livslängd; inomhusklimat; energianvändning; livscykelanalyser; flerbostadshus; analys; livscykelkostnader; ekonomi;

    Abstract : This work examines the application of ILCD (Integrated Life Cycle Design), to Swedish concrete multi-dwelling buildings. The aim of the study is to look into methodological issues of ILCD and to present the fundamental attributes of dwelling buildings and how they relate to concrete as a structural material. READ MORE

  2. 2. Integrated Life Cycle Design - Applied to concrete multi-dwelling buildings

    Abstract : This thesis is an investigation into how meta-heuristic multi-objective optimisation processes (genetic algorithms driven by evolutionary solvers) can bring about materials-related advantages in architectural performance. It redefines the architect’s and engineer’s role from being designers of a singular space or structure to being designers of entire species of spaces, and discusses a particular method – anticipatory adaptive assemblages (AAA) – that allows such processes to produce many generations of design iterations that eventually yield individuals optimised for a set of predefined objectives.

  4. 4. Environmental Assessment of Green Chemicals - LCA of Bio-Based Chemicals Produced Using Biocatalysis

    Author : Linda Tufvesson; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; green chemicals; industrial biotechnology; Life cycle assessment; renewable resources;

    Abstract : It is of at most importance that society reduces its impact on the environment. In the chemical industry the use of renewable resources will play a fundamental role in the transition to more sustainable chemical products. Also industrial biotechnology, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Environmental Impacts of ICT: Present and Future
