  1. 1. The Factory of the Future: An analysis on buildings, HVAC, and heat recovery systems in order to reduce energy consumption

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för energivetenskaper

    Author : Christina Naumburg; [2022]
    Keywords : HVAC; energy; consumption; electricity; industry; heat recovery; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The industrial sector in Sweden accounted for 38 percent of the country’s total energy consumption in 2019. As the world’s focus has shifted drastically on energy consumption, the industry sector’s has as well due to energy initiatives and government-driven regulations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Autoencoder Compression in High Energy Physics

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Partikelfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Lunds Tekniska Högskola

    Author : Sten Åstrand; [2022]
    Keywords : High energy physics; LHC; ATLAS; hadron jet; machine learning; autoencoder; dimensionality reduction; artificial intelligence; data compression; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Situated in Geneva, Switzerland, the Large Hadron Collider is largest particle accelerator in the world, and as such, its operation carries with it some of the greatest technical challenges ever faced. Among them are the huge demands put on data storage capacity by experiments in particle physics, both in terms of rate and volume of data. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optimized design of a load transfer concrete slab

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Jonna Tattari; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Hybrid buildings, designed for multi-use occupancies, require a different arrangement of supporting structures at each level of the support functionality. In these types of buildings, the structural model of a building is discontinuous, and therefore new, non-vertical, load paths need to be formed allowing the vertical load to transfer to the foundations.

  4. 4. MICRO-CLIMATE CHARACTERIZATION OF COMFORT MATERIALS : A CLIMATE ANALYSIS OF HIGH RESILIENCE FOAM IN MICRO-CLIMATE CONDITIONS

    University essay from Mälardalens universitet/Framtidens energi

    Author : Ullas Siddachary; [2022]
    Keywords : High resilience; high density; foam; operational energy; comfort; materials; temperature; heat index; vapor pressure; humidity; PCR coating;

    Abstract : Currently, it is widely recognised that the operational energy consumption of most building types currently outweighs their embodied energy by some margin. However, as we make dramatic increases in energy efficiency the embodied energy of the materials and components that we use will become proportionally larger and may account for a substantial proportion of the energy associated with buildings in the future.
