  1. 1. Possibilities of using thermal mass in buildings to save energy, cut power consumption peaks and increase the thermal comfort

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

    Author : Jonathan Karlsson; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; concrete; aggregates; heat capacity; thermal properties; thermal conductivity; thermal inertia; thermal mass; time constant; Energy storage;

    Abstract : The aim of this project was to generate knowledge to enable us to take advantage of heat storage in heavy building structures with regard to as energy savings, better thermal indoor climate, and reduced peak powers. This could include buildings that can function without energy input during cold periods, buildings that give a robust indoor climate without installed cooling, and buildings with good thermal comfort also in case of higher outdoor temperatures resulting from global warming.

  2. 2. Footwear for cold environments. Thermal properties, performance and testing

    University dissertation from Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Kalev Kuklane; [1999]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industrial Work Environment; Industriell produktionsmiljö; thermal insulation; sweating; skin temperature; thermal foot model; thermal responses; pain sensation; boots; footwear; cold; foot;

    Abstract : Abstract in Uncoded languages Praegune kaitsejalatsite testimise standard (EN 344) kontrollib soojapidavuslikke omadusi vaid jalatsi ühes punktis, mõõtes temperatuuri muutust. Meetod, mis kasutab termilist jala mudelit, võimaldab mõõta jalatsi soojaisolatsiooni üheaegselt erinevates piirkondades ning ühtlasi ka jalatsi kui terviku soojaisolatsiooni. READ MORE

  3. 3. Prediction of power and energy use in dwellings : Addressing apects of thermal mass and occupant behaviour

    University dissertation from Lund University, Lund Institute of Technology, Division of Building Services, P.O. Box 118, SE-22100 LUND, Sweden

    Author : Victor Fransson; [2020-05-13]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggnadssimulering; Termisk massa; Värmetröghet; boendes beteende; hushållsel; varmvatten; building simulation; thermal mass; thermal inertia; occupant behaviour; household electricity; domestic hot water;

    Abstract : Households are responsible for approximately 26 % of the annual energy use in the EU. Following the EU-directives regarding energy performance in buildings, international initiatives have been taken in Europe to help countries to define and include guidelines in their own building codes, for example, to establish the concept of zero energy buildings, ZEBs.

    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

  5. 5. On the thermal inertia and time constant of single-family houses

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Johan Hedbrant; Björn Karlsson; Mats Söderström; Stig-Inge Gustafsson; Karin Adalberth; [2001]

    Abstract : Since the nineteen-seventies, electricity has become a common heating source in Swedish single-family houses. About one million smallhouses can use electricity for heating, about 600.000 have electricity as the only heating source. READ MORE
