• Automatic vs Manual Control Strategy for Window Blinds and Ceiling Lights: Consequences to Perceived Visual and Thermal Discomfort 

      Lolli, Nicola; Nocente, Alessandro; Brozovsky, Johannes; Woods, Ruth; Grynning, Steinar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      A case study to evaluate the occupants' satisfaction in relation to two different control strategies (fully automatic and manual) for blind and ceiling lights use in cell offices was carried on in Trondheim, Norway. A group ...
    • CFD Study of Diffuse Ceiling Ventilation through Perforated Ceiling Panels 

      Nocente, Alessandro; Arslan, Tufan; Grynning, Steinar; Goia, Francesco (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Diffuse Ceiling Ventilation (DCV) is a promising concept to address internal air quality and thermal comfort requirements in contemporary buildings. Sound-absorbing perforated ceiling panels are common in office rooms and ...
    • Computational Fluid Dynamics Study of a Diffuse Ceiling Ventilation System through Sound-absorbing Ceiling Panels 

      Nocente, Alessandro; Grynning, Steinar; Mathisen, Hans Martin; Goia, Francesco (Chapter, 2018)
      The Diffuse Ceiling Ventilation (DCV) is one of the promising concepts to satisfy ventilation and thermal comfort requirements in modern buildings. This solution allows the injection of a high amount of ventilation air at ...
    • Design of Centrifugal Pump for Produced Water 

      Foslie, Sverre Stefanussen (Master thesis, 2013)
      During the spring of 2008, Jón Bergmann Heimisson developed a pump design program in Matlab. The program has been further developed during the work with this thesis, as well as in the author's preceding project thesis, ...
    • LDV Measurements in Centrifugal Pump Diffuser 

      Bjørgen, Karl Oskar Pires (Master thesis, 2015)
      This thesis describes experimental research on the flow inside a vaned diffuser of a centrifugal pump. The measurements were conducted inside one of the ten curved diffuser channels on the single-stage centrifugal pump ...
    • Possibilities and Challenges of Different Experimental Techniques for Airflow Characterisation in the Air Cavities of Façades 

      Giancola, Emanuela; Maria, Nuria Sánchez; Friedrich, Matthias; Kalyanova Larsen, Olena; Nocente, Alessandro; Avesani, Stefano; Babich, Francesco; Goia, Francesco (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Ventilated façades are applied in both new and existing buildings. It has been claimed that these components help to reduce energy use in buildings and improve occupant comfort. However, their performance strongly depends ...
    • Separation Friendly Produced Water Pumps 

      Nocente, Alessandro (Doctoral thesis at NTNU;2016:263, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
      Produced water is the largest by-product of the oil and gas industry and its handling represents an important challenge. The fluid is mainly constituted by water, but its high content of sand, salt, sediments and especially ...
    • Temperature and thermal comfort in office spaces: measurements vs. simulations 

      Lolli, Nicola; Brozovsky, Johannes; Nocente, Alessandro; Grynning, Steinar (Chapter, 2019)
      A deviation between the calculated and the measured data of energy use in buildings (known as performance gap) has been extensively reported. The aim of this study is to identify the underlying causes of the deviation ...
    • ZEB Laboratory - Research Possibilities 

      Time, Berit; Nocente, Alessandro; Mathisen, Hans Martin; Førland-Larsen, Arne; Myhr, Anders Ramberg; Jacobsen, Terje; Gustavsen, Arild (SINTEF Notat;, Research report, 2019)
      The ZEB Laboratory is an experimental facility located in NTNU Gløshaugen campus in Trondheim. The building is designed as 4 storeys high and 1800 m2 area office space and should achieve the ZEB-COM ambition level over 60 ...
