  1. 1. Re-thinking green roof design : The prospect of a carbon sink structure investigated through a life cycle cost-benefit analysis

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Author : Aziliz Le Rouzo; [2020]
    Keywords : Carbon Footprint; Green Roof Design; Carbon Sink; Cost-Effectiveness; Life cycle Cost-Benefit Analysis; Green Roofs; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Green Roofs (GRs) have been used worldwide as a solution for greening cities, while providing useful services to society such as storm water management, improved air quality, energy savings, and increased biodiversity, to name a few. However, the environmental impact of their structure has been understudied, and more importantly, the carbon cost related to the use of materials that have a high carbon footprint has received little to no attention.

  2. 2. Material Characterization for the Simulation of Drop Tests Against PMMA Sheets

    University essay from Jönköping University/JTH, Material och tillverkning

    Author : Arturo Sancho Montagut; [2020]
    Keywords : Abaqus; Polymers; PMMA; Acrylic; Simulation; Material Models; Hyperelasticity; Plasticity; Viscoelasticity; Drucker Prager; Yeoh; Drop Test; Luminaires;

    Abstract : There is a high demand for implementing simulations in the design and product devel-opment processes, avoiding the execution of costly tests on prototypes and giving thechance of discarding unsuitable designs, as well as exploring possible ones without much cost added.This project assignment is to find a suitable way to simulate drop tests on two typesof PMMA sheets, a material widely used on luminaire covers.

  3. 3. Design and Optimization of Ultrafiltration Membrane Setup for Wastewater Treatment and Reuse

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Ekansh Sharma; [2020]
    Keywords : parameters; membrane; predict; optimize; quality; reduction;

    Abstract : With the advances in the membrane technology, there is an ongoing quest to determine the best optimal configuration for an adopted treatment as well as it’s polishing to achieve cumulative sustainability for the treatment process. Henceforth, this thesis report is an evaluation to devise a membrane filtration process for investigating the possibility of treating pre-sedimented municipal wastewater with ceramic ultrafiltration, optimizing the membrane as a pre-treatment for reverse osmosis as an overall strategy for recovering wastewater.

  4. 4. Transreality

    University essay from KTH/Arkitektur

    Author : Emmelina Gateman; [2020]
    Keywords : virtual; representation; video game design; low poly; image fabrication; displacement; worldbuilding;

    Abstract : How can we as architects interact with external practices, such as video games? Are there relevant aspects to be found, and what are the ways in which they could be approached? This project grounds itself in three different personal interests; architecture, digital design tools and video games, or more specifically: ”What kind of architectural expressions and spaces could be created if we design in the borderland between the real and the virtual game?” This is an experimental project that approaches a few aspects of video game design, as well as potential qualities of virtual worlds. It concerns itself with image based digital massing, level design as basis for program or composition on site, as well as being on the border between the real and the virtual. READ MORE

  5. 5. CFD Simulations of Flow Characteristics of a Piano Key Weir Spillway

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Elektricitetslära; Uppsala universitet/Elektricitetslära

    Author : William Sjösten; Victor Vadling; [2020]
    Keywords : Piano Key Weir; Ansys Fluent; Multiphase Flow; Spillway; Flow Characteristics; CFD; Realizable k-epsilon; Volume of Fluid; Renolds-averaged Navier-Stokes;

    Abstract : Comprehensive rehabilitation projects of dam spillways are made in Sweden, due to stricter dam safety guidelines for their discharge capacity. The Piano Key Weir (PKW) is an innovative design which has proven effective through several renovation projects made in many countries including France. READ MORE
