    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Ellinor Hambraeus; Maxwell Minotta Cuervo; [2023]
    Keywords : Electric bus; Bus temperature; Thermal comfort; Energy efficiency; Predicted Mean Vote; Equivalent temperature v; Elbuss; busstemperatur; termisk komfort; energieffektivisering; Predicted Mean Vote; Ekvivalent temperatur vii;

    Abstract : The transition towards electrification in the bus sector is necessary to achieve the global climate goals and has gained significant traction in recent years. However, there are critical challenges associated with this transition, one of them being the absence of excess heat that traditional combustion engines provided to warm the bus cabin. READ MORE

  3. 3. Evaluation of Heat Mapping Techniques – the Case of Linköping

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för tema; Linköpings universitet/Filosofiska fakulteten

    Author : Pei Zhao; [2023]
    Keywords : correlation analysis; spatial analysis; land surface temperature LST ; mean radiant temperature MRT ; vulnerable population;

    Abstract : Land surface temperature (LST) and mean radiant temperature (MRT) are commonly used as proxies to evaluate urban heat environments. Many scholars use one of them to represent heat exposure when assessing the urban thermal environment. READ MORE

  4. 4. Desert garden techniques to ameliorate urban microclimates : an example of application in Granada, Spain

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

  5. 5. Outdoor thermal comfort in Drottninghög, Helsingborg: a study on the effects of urban densification in a warmer climate

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Daniel Erlström; [2020]
    Keywords : Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Extreme heat can lead to a significant increase in mortality, especially for urban citizens. Densification of urban areas can dramatically affect the local climate of the city by replacing green areas with impermeable materials and changing both radiative and turbulent fluxes. READ MORE
