  1. 1. Exploring climate impacts of timber buildings The effects from including non-traditional aspects in life cycle impact assessment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Diego Peñaloza; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle assessment LCA ; timber buildings; biobased building materials; low-energy buildings; forest products; climate impact assessment; biogenic emissions; carbon storage; timing of emissions; Industriell ekologi; Industrial Ecology; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : There is an urgency within the building sector to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change. An increased proportion of biobased building materials in construction is a potential measure to reduce these emissions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vibration transmission in lightweight buildings : Numerical prediction models

    University dissertation from Structural Mechanics, Lund University

    Author : Ola Flodén; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016-12-22]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vibration transmission; structure-borne sound; wood buildings; numerical modelling; finite element method; structure-acoustic coupling; model validation; model calibration; dynamic substructuring; model order reduction;

    Abstract : Ljud från grannar är ett återkommande problem för boende i flerfamiljshus. Problemen är generellt mer omfattande för de som bor i flervåningshus byggda i trä, en byggnadstyp som blir allt vanligare i Sverige. Många av de boende i trähus upplever även att störande vibrationer är vanligt förekommande i trähus. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thermal stresses in load-bearing glass-timber components

    University dissertation from Växjö : School of Engineering, Linnaeus University

    Author : Karin Lundstedt; Linnéuniversitetet.; [2012]
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Thermal stresses; thermal failure; glass and wood construction; incident solar radiation; shading; cracks; temperature difference; finite element method.; Technology byts ev till Engineering ; Teknik;

    Abstract : Thermal stresses can arise in glass used in architectonic realisations in buildings as a result of solar irradiation:  that is, sunlight.  The magnitude of these thermal stresses depends on the temperature conditions in the glass in terms of the temperature differences between warm and cold areas.

  4. 4. Life-Cycle Energy and Carbon Implications of Wood-Based Products and Construction

    University dissertation from Sundsvall : Mid Sweden Univ

    Author : Roger Sathre; Mittuniversitetet.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; forest products; climate change mitigation; carbon balance; energy; life cycle; wood; land use; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Environmental engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Forests can be an important element of an overall strategy to limit the atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) that contributes to climate change. As an integral part of the global carbon cycle, forests remove CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow, and accumulate carbon in tree biomass. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cellulosic Thermal Insulation with Improved Water Resistance and Fire Retardancy

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Chao Zheng; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Bio-based; Cellulosic; Fire retardant; Thermal insulation; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Sweden is one of the largest countries by area in Europe, and almost 70% of it is covered by forest. These abundant forest resources benefit the Swedish bioeconomy, but the pulp and paper industry is facing the challenge of a decrease in the demand for printing paper due to a significant shift to electronic media; therefore, it is a priority to use pulp to produce alternative value-added products, such as thermal insulating materials in buildings.
