  1. 1. Adoption of Additive Manufacturing in Hospitals – Multiple Case Study

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och industriell teknik

    Author : Xiang Li; [2022]
    Keywords : Additive Manufacturing; healthcare; implementation; key factors; centralization; decentralization;

    Abstract : Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a technology that can revolutionize the healthcare industry in terms of customization. Various studies and ongoing practice have proved the potential of AM in clinical use as enormous. However, to reach a routine level of adoption of AM in patients’ care, there are various things to consider. READ MORE

  2. 2. Energy analysis between traditional hot water circulation system and an innovative pipe-in-pipe system

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem och byggnadsteknik

    Author : Alejandro Abellán Guallarte; [2022]
    Keywords : Hot water circulation; pipe-in-pipe; energy saving; buildings; heat losses; warm water;

    Abstract : We are at a time when energy efficiency and the reduction in the use of non-renewable energy is an important objective in all aspects and will continue to be so, therefore it is necessary to try to reduce energy and heat losses in the systems used in homes and, in particular, in the domestic hot water (DHW) system. This study aims to find out the advantages and disadvantages of an innovative pipe-in-pipe (PIP) system for DHW circulation with respect to the conventional system of two separate pipes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessment of calculation methods for Primary Energy Factors : Case Study of Swedish electricity mix

    University essay from Högskolan i Gävle/Energisystem och byggnadsteknik

    Author : Javier Ferrero Andrés; [2022]
    Keywords : Primary Energy; Primary Energy Factor; Calculation methods; Partial Substitution; Exergy; Physical Energy Content;

    Abstract : The use of the concept of "primary energy" is present in all types of regulations at both European and national level, so that all aspects related to the reduction of energy use and energy efficiency measures speak in terms of primary energy and Primary Energy Factors, necessary for its conversion. The existing consensus on the use of the term is not such in terms of the methodology for calculating the Primary Energy Factors to be adopted, which is the reason for the search for a methodology that acquires the status of global and standard.

  4. 4. Improving the Efficiency of Thermal Energy Usage in Residential Buildings by Heat Recovery from Wastewater

    University essay from Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för företagande, innovation och hållbarhet; Högskolan i Halmstad/Akademin för företagande, innovation och hållbarhet

    Author : Pranjal Jain; Khaled Alturkmani; [2021]
    Keywords : Wastewater; Heat Exchangers; Heat Pumps; Biofilms;

    Abstract : This study aims to rationalize the consumption of thermal energy in residential buildings by recovering heat from wastewater inside the building before entering the central sewage network outside the building, by conducting an analytical study for a residential tower in Syria to find out the coverage percentage of the heat energy recovered from wastewater for the heating and domestic hot water loads needed for the tower, and calculating the percentage of reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) gases. It is a simple technology as the thermal recovery system consists of three main components, which are in order: a wastewater tank, heat exchangers, and a heat pump. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transverse force absorption in column base mounts for steel columns : Screw joints in column bases

    University essay from KTH/Byggteknik och design

    Author : Dejan Jovanovic; Ruslan Khalilov; [2021]
    Keywords : column bases; transverse force absorption; tightening moment; clamping force; non-prestressed joints; Pelarfötter; tvärkraftskapacitet; åtdragningsmoment; spännkraft; icke förspända förband;

    Abstract : It is common to use different construction materials in combination such as concrete, steel, wood and glass in order to optimize buildings. The purpose of this is to reduce weight and increase load capacity, but it also facilitates assembly and reduces construction time. READ MORE
