    Abstract : Cross-laminated timber (CLT) is an engineered wood product consisting of several layers of laminations bonded together with adhesives. In contrast to heavier construction materials, timber and other lightweight building materials are more prone to serviceability issues due to vibrations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Energy-Efficient Retrofits on an Existing Home in Coimbra, Portugal : A dynamic assessment of environmental performance for future climate and energy mix scenarios

    University essay from KTH/Hållbara byggnader

    Author : Jordan Berman; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This work introduces a method, called the dynamic building life cycle, to evaluate theenvironmental performance for residential renovation products. The method goes beyond a fullbuildinglife cycle by accounting for the changing dry bulb temperature and greenhouse gas (GHG)intensity over a 30-year period between 2020 and 2050. READ MORE
