  1. About Shoes, Cucumbers, Beer and Cars: A Bottom-Up Household Consumption LCA-Model 

    Froemelt, Andreas; Walker, Christie; Durrenmatt, David J.; et al. (2017)
    Household consumption is – besides governmental consumption – the main driver of economy. Households are thus ultimately responsible for the environmental impacts which occur over the whole life cycle of products and services they consume. Given that purchase decisions are usually taken on household level and are highly behavior-driven, the derivation of targeted environmental measures requires an understanding of household behavior ...

  2. A Model Faces Reality: Energy Demand of Swiss Residential Buildings 

    Froemelt, Andreas; Hellweg, Stefanie (2015)
    The housing sector constitutes a major energy consumer particularly on account of its needs for space heating and cooling. With a high leverage potential, this sector is a suitable starting point for greenhouse gas mitigation policies. By providing predictions of the energy demand of building stocks, bottom-up building energy models can represent a first step towards deriving strategies for the abatement of detrimental effects related to ...

  3. Improving the planning and design phases of construction projects by using a Case-Based Digital Building System 

    García de Soto, Borja; Streule, Thomas; Klippel, Michael; et al. (2018)
    International Journal of Construction Management
    The construction industry is known for having well-defined and systematic processes for the different phases of a project. Improvements, however, are possible with respect to how information is used in these phases and how the experience gained from previous projects is exploited. In this paper, an example of how new technologies can be used to improve the planning and design of buildings is shown. In the example, a Case-Based Digital ...

  4. The optimality condition of the multiple-cycle smoothed curve signal timing model 

    Li, Li; Yang, Kaidi; Li, Zhiheng; et al. (2013)
    Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies
    In this paper, we study the global optimality of the multiple-cycle smoothed curve signal timing model that was proposed in Liu et al. (2008) for individual oversaturated intersections. First, we propose a counterexample to show that the recursively decomposing design method in Liu et al. (2008) cannot guarantee the global optimality of multiple-cycle signal timing plan for all traffic scenarios. Second, we give a simple sufficient global ...
