    • Ombygging til Blågrønne Tak - En undersøkelse av bygningtekniske utfordringer ved å bygge om eksisterende tak til blågrønne tak 

      Skjeldrum, Petter Martin (Master thesis, 2016)
      Denne masteroppgaven er skrevet i samarbeid med «Klima 2050», et forskningssenter som søker å utvikle kompetanse innen reduksjon av samfunnsmessig risiko knyttet til klimaendringer. En av de nærliggende klimautfordringene ...
    • Performance of Blue-Green Roofs in Cold Climates: A Scoping Review 

      Andenæs, Erlend; Kvande, Tore; Muthanna, Tone Merete; Lohne, Jardar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Green and blue-green roofs are emerging as an increasingly popular feature of rooftops, particularly in urban areas. Particular problematic conditions render their usage complex in the Nordic countries. In order to ensure ...
    • Perspectives on Quality Risk in the Building Process of Blue-Green Roofs in Norway 

      Andenæs, Erlend; Engebø, Atle; Time, Berit; Lohne, Jardar; Torp, Olav; Kvande, Tore (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      As climate change brings an increase in torrential rain events in Nordic climates, new technologies are developed to manage stormwater. Blue-green roofs are constructed as a means to reduce the runoff of stormwater from ...
    • Retention and detention-based roofs for stormwater management in urban environments in cold climates 

      Hamouz, Vladimír (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:305, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
      The combined effect of urbanization and climate change, which results in an increased level of imperviousness, is currently causing stress to urban drainage systems in urban areas unable to preserve the hydrological cycle ...
    • Risk Management in Procurement of Blue-Green Roofs – A Project Owner Perspective 

      Andenæs, Erlend; Time, Berit; Torp, Olav; Kvande, Tore; Lohne, Jardar (Conference object, 2019)
      Blue-green roofs are vegetated roofs used for stormwater management purposes. With the roof serving several different purposes at the same time, the risk that any of its functions could be compromised needs to be addressed. ...

    • Roof-integrated PV in Nordic climate - Building physical challenges 

      Gullbrekken, Lars; Kvande, Tore; Time, Berit (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Use of photovoltaics (PV) is key remedies in buildings where a large part of the energy supply should be based on renewable energy. PV in Nordic climate can be challenging because ofand temperatures below zero. The aim of ...
    • The design process for achievement of an office living laboratory with a ZEB standard 

      Time, Berit; Engebø, Atle; Christensen, Morten; Dalby, Ola; Kvande, Tore (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      ZEB Laboratory is a full-scale office building with a ZEB-COM ambition, searching a high degree of flexibility and where components and technical systems can be modified for research purposes. Project delivery of a living ...
    • The Effect of Fly Ash and GGBFS as Cement Replacement on Chloride Binding and Ingress in Mortar Samples 

      Ytterdal, Silje Gystad (Master thesis, 2014)
      Reinforcement corrosion has been identified as the predominant deterioration mechanism for reinforced concrete structures (fib, 2006), and is usually caused by carbonation or chloride attack. Chloride- induced corrosion ...
    • The effect of insulation thickness on lifetime CO2 emissions 

      Totland, Marie; Kvande, Tore; Bohne, Rolf André (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      This paper assesses the total carbon emissions of a single-family home designed and built for Norwegian conditions, according to current standards (TEK 17), using an LCA approach. Various combinations of insulation thicknesses ...
    • U-verdier for vegger av lettklinkermurverk 

      Færevaag, Hege Bjerke (Master thesis, 2014)
      Rapportens formål er å undersøke hvor sensitivt lettklinkermurverk er med tanke på å oppnå prosjektert U-verdi. Det er undersøk hvilke forhold under oppmuring og i produksjon av blokkene som påvirker U-verdien og disse ...
    • Ventilated wooden roofs: Influence of local weather conditions-measurements 

      Gullbrekken, Lars; Kvande, Tore; Time, Berit (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      This study investigates the influence of temperature and air velocity conditions on ventilation and condensation in spring, summer and autumn periods inside a ventilated cavity in a full-scale wooden roof construction. The ...
    • Wind pressure coefficients for roof ventilation purposes
