  1. 1. Modelling and Analysis of Daylight, Solar Heat Gains and Thermal Losses to Inform the Early Stage of the Architectural Process

    University essay from KTH/Installations- och energisystem

    Author : Nicholas Baker; [2017]
    Keywords : Visual programming; BIM; Dynamo; Revit; Ladybug; Honeybee; facade optimisation; architectural process; early stage; environmental analysis; daylight; solar heat gains; thermal losses;

    Abstract : The EU building sector is a main contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, which need to be cut as part of the global response to anthropogenic climate change. This cut can be realised through improvements in building energy performance, such as optimisation of facade design. READ MORE

  2. 2. Real-time event based visualization of multivariate abstract datasets : Implementing and evaluating a dashboard visualization prototype

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för datavetenskap och kommunikation (CSC)

    Author : Carl Ahrsjö; [2015]
    Keywords : Real-time; information visualization; event based; dataset; dashboard;

    Abstract : As datasets in general grow in size and complexity over time while the human cognitive ability to interpret said datasets essentially stays the same, it becomes important to enable intuitive visualization methods for analysis. Based on previous research in the field of information visualization and visual analytics, a dashboard visualization prototype handling real-time event based traffic was implemented and evaluated.

  3. 3. Daylight Optimization - A Parametric Study of Atrium Design : Early Stage Design Guidelines of Atria for Optimization of Daylight Autonomy

    University essay from KTH/Installations- och energisystem

    Author : Örn Erlendsson; [2014]
    Keywords : Atrium; daylight; daylight autonomy; dynamic daylight simulation; early stage design guidelines; Grasshopper; Honeybee; illuminance; optimization; parametric modelling;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the design of atria for daylighting in large scale buildings. Athree dimensional test building with a central atrium was constructed and various parameters of the atrium altered. The impact of these changes was studied through computer simulations of annual daylight distribution by implementing state of theart software. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigation of the “BREEAM Communities” tool with respect to urban design

    University essay from KTH/Miljöstrategisk analys (fms)

    Author : Athina Venou; [2014]
    Keywords : BREEAM Communities; urban design; process tool; assessment; community; district; case study; planning stages; interviews; BREEAM Communities; stadsplanering; processverktyg; utvärderings; gemenskap; Distrikt; fallstudie; Planeringsstadiet; intervjuer;

    Abstract : Urbanisation is an increasing phenomenon especially the last years, which is of major concern due to the damage that can cause on environmental components such as climate, biosphere, land and water resources. A prevalent way to control this damage and mitigate the negative impacts of urban areas, lately, is considered the use of international tools like BREEAM Communities. READ MORE

  5. 5. Simplification of 3d cooled turbine blade models for efficient dynamic analyses

    University essay from KTH/Kraft- och värmeteknologi

    Author : Arokia Arokia Lourdu Marshall; [2013]
    Keywords : SGT-750; Cooled turbine blades;

    Abstract : In gas turbines, the temperature behind the combustors is the highest, meaning that the blades in the first stage of the turbine require cooling air. This makes the structural blade model very detailed due to the presence of the cooling pattern. READ MORE
