  1. 1. Solar Shading for Low Energy Use and Daylight Quality in Offices: Simulations, Measurements and Design Tools

    University dissertation from LTH, Lund University

    Author : Marie-Claude Dubois; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; screens; venetian blinds; awnings; design tools; measurements; computer simulations; solar-protective glass; heating; cooling; visual comfort; daylighting; energy use; Shading devices; solar protection; Architecture; interior design; Arkitektur; inredningsarkitektur; Energy research; Energiforskning;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the impact of solar shading devices on energy use and daylight quality in office rooms. The impact on energy use is analysed through computer simulations with the dynamic energy simulation program Derob-LTH while the impact on daylight quality is investigated through measurements in full-scale experimental office rooms and simulations with the program Radiance.

  3. 3. 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; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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
