    Abstract : In December of 2019, the city of Wuhan in China reported an outbreak of a high number of pneumoniacases (Bassareo, 2020). The SARS-CoV-2 Virus (severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2)started to cause disturbance in societal functions, eventually leading to anomalous infection controlmeasures. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Energy Savings Potential of a Heat Recovery Unit and Demand Controlled Ventilation in an Office Building

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för tillämpad fysik och elektronik

    Author : Martin Fagernäs; [2021]
    Keywords : Demand Controlled Ventilation; DCV; Heat Recovery Unit;

    Abstract : The building sector is responsible for approximately 40 % of the total energy usage in Sweden. In office buildings the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system can account for up to 55 % of the energy usage. In order to reduce the energy usage of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system different control methods are often used. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vibration reduction over junctions in buildings

    University essay from KTH/Marcus Wallenberg Laboratoriet MWL

    Author : Alexander Forsberg; Aras Wali; [2021]
    Keywords : Vibration reduction; Junction; Building acoustics; Vibrations minskning; Knutpunkt; Byggnadsakustik;

    Abstract : Structure borne sound can travel multiple paths from one office to another and choosing to sound insulate a specific building element can be difficult since all the building elements are connected together and form a coupled system. The current approach by engineers when investigating transmission paths between spaces in a building is using a computer model and assuming that the junctions are firmly clamped or free. READ MORE

  5. 5. A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF TRAVELLING FIRE IN LARGE SPACES WITH MULTI-ZONE FIRE MODEL AND FDS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Paolo Bertoli; [2021]
    Keywords : Multi-Zone fire model; FDS; Large enclosures; Travelling fire.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A knowledge of far field temperatures is valuable for Performance Based Design structural analysis and life safety analysis, where a parametric study is needed. A fire model using multiple zones called a multi zone (MZ) fire model has in previous studies shown good potential as an analytical tool for predicting far field temperatures in large compartments.
