  1. 1. A Study on Life Cycle Assessment-based Tool for the Early Stage of Building Design

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Nazila Ravan; [2019]
    Keywords : Architects; architectural design; buildings; carbon footprint; life cycle assessment; sustainability; tool;

    Abstract : The responsibility of the building sector to diminish the harmful environmental impacts, locally and globally, has been extensively considered. Thus, Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in building and construction practices has been widely implemented. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of CO2 Ice rink heat recovery system performance

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Sotirios Thanasoulas; [2018]
    Keywords : Ice rinks; CO2 as refrigerant; Heat recovery; Efficient systems; Operation control; Warm climate; Isrinkar; Koldioxid som kylmedel; Värmeåtervinning; Effektiva system; Driftstyrning; Varmt klimat;

    Abstract : Ice rinks are the largest energy consumers in terms of public buildings due to their simultaneous need of cooling, heating, ventilation, and lighting for different parts of the building which means that these facilities also have a lot of potential for energy saving. Due to the size of the cooling unit in an ice rink the refrigerant charge can become quite high, which potentially has a big impact on the environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impact from flexible operation on High Head Francis turbines

    University essay from KTH/Hållfasthetslära (Avd.)

    Author : Andreas Skorpen; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Today the European energy grid contains more renewable energy sources than ever before, yet there is little to no research on how the increased amount affects the cost structure of the remaining energy sources of the grid. A consequence of phasing more renewable energy sources into the power grid, is a reduction of the overall balancing capacity of the grid. READ MORE

  4. 4. Improvements to Thermal Management System for Automotive Components

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Tommy Enefalk; [2018]
    Keywords : Cooling; thermal management; energy efficiency; vehicle; automotive; Kylsystem; kylning; värmehantering; energieffektivisering; fordon;

    Abstract : Global warming imposes great challenges, and anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions have to be reduced by active measures. The transportation sector is one of the key sectors where significant reductions are desired. Within a vehicle, the cooling/thermal management system is a subsystem intended for temperature control of automotive components. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling and Analysis of the Shot Peening Process : a Study of the Residual Stresses in an Insert using the Finite Element Method

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för maskinteknik (MT)

    Author : Hamid Torkaman; [2018]
    Keywords : Shot peening; Residual stresses; Cutting tool inserts; Post-coating treatment; Coated cemented carbide;

    Abstract : Cutting tool inserts are often coated with thin layers either through chemical vapor deposition (CVD) or physical vapor deposition (PVD) processes. In order to have a better wear resistance cutting tools are mostly subjected to post-coating treatment processes. READ MORE
