  1. 1. Future climate resilience of energy-efficient retrofit projects in central Europe

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Jonas Manuel Gremmelspacher; Julija Sivolova; [2019]
    Keywords : Climate change; Future climate; Climate action; Building Performance Simulations; Hygrothermal Simulations; Moisture; Heating demand; Retrofit; Renovation; Building stock; Residential; Dwellings; Thermal envelope; Heating peak loads; Thermal comfort; Indoor environmental quality; Actual case studies; Big data; Denmark; Germany; Iterative workflow; Weather files.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : This study assesses the performance of buildings affected by climate change under future climate predictions for three time-periods until the end of the 21st century. Objects studied are residential multi-storey buildings, originally built before 1970 and retrofitted during the last decade. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigating The Relationship Between Mean Radiant Temperature (MRT) And Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) : A case study in a University building

    University essay from KTH/Installations- och energisystem

    Author : Swapnil Godbole; [2018]
    Keywords : Mean Radiant Temperature MRT ; Predicted Mean Vote PMV ; Local Thermal Discomfort; Solar shading; Window Performance; Mean Radiant Tempratur; Local Termisk Obehag; PMV; Solskydd; Fönster Prestanda;

    Abstract : Thermal comfort in an indoor environment is largely dependent on the four environmental and two personal parameters which is most commonly measured by the Predicted Mean Vote (PMV) model developed by Fanger. It has been studied that variations in these parameters beyond a range could lead to discomfort complaints. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigating the energy demand and supply of a residential neighborhood in Malmö

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Tianqi Wang; [2018]
    Keywords : Building energy performance; Solar energy; Micro wind turbine; Residential buildings.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Facing the climate change and the energy crisis, the governments are taking steps to reduce the energy use and enhance the integration of renewable energy installations. Built environment is attributed to 40% of the global energy use, and the literature indicates that integrating the local renewable energy sources to the grid and meanwhile renovating the buildings can significantly improve the energy performance of the building sector.

  4. 4. Examination of adaptive comfort models for appropriate assessment of thermal comfort in transitory and semiexternal spaces

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign

    Author : Medina Deliahmedova; [2016]
    Keywords : Thermal comfort; PMV; adaptive comfort model; UTCI; transitory spaces; semi-external spaces; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Thermal comfort is a topic that for the last century has interested designers and researchers. European and International standards have given guidelines for assessment of thermal comfort in typical indoor environments for long occupancy, however the transitory spaces and semi-external spaces have not been addressed.

  5. 5. Refined distribution of frit. Method and design tool for improved thermal comfort in glazed spaces.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign

    Author : Magdalena Stefanowicz; Amanda O'Donnell; [2016]
    Keywords : frit; solar shading; parametric design; overheating; g-value; glazed spaces; thermal comfort; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Thermal comfort in highly glazed buildings has long proven to be a troublesome matter due to unwanted passive solar heat gains. Excessive solar gains are commonly counteracted with energy-intensive cooling systems and/or comprehensive shading devices. Shading devices are used to adjust solar heat transmission through glazing.
