  4. 4. Moisture conditions in rain exposed wood joints - Experimental methods and laboratory measurements

    University dissertation from Division of Building Materials, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Maria Fredriksson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wood; moisture; durability; service life; microclimate; surface moisture; mositure content; Norway spruce; Picea abies; pressure plate; decay; growth ring width; heartwood;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the moisture conditions in rain exposed wood structures, i.e. wood exposed to high moisture levels. The focus was on the microclimate (the climate at the wood surface) and the material climate (the wood moisture content) in joints. READ MORE

  5. 5. Extensive green roofs in Porto Alegre, Brazil : Effect on indoor thermal comfort in residential buildings

    University dissertation from Department of Architecture and Built Environment, Lund University

    Author : Lisandra Fachinello Krebs; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018-11-07]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Architecture; Computer simulations; Extensive green roofs; Housing projects; Indoor thermal comfort; Leaf area index; Microclimate; Social housing; Sustainability; Thermal comfort;

    Abstract : Brazil had a significant quantitative housing deficit of 7.7 million residences in 2015, especially in low-income housing. Traditionally, these projects have low levels of thermal insulation which can result in discomfort caused by warmth or cold. The residential sector is responsible for a significant part of the energy use in Brazil. READ MORE
