• Decision diagram algorithms to extract minimal cutsets of finite degradation models 

      Rauzy, Antoine; Yang, Liu (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      In this article, we propose decision diagram algorithms to extract minimal cutsets of finite degradation models. Finite degradation models generalize and unify combinatorial models used to support probabilistic risk, ...
    • Finite Degradation Structures: A Unified Framework of Combinatorial Models in Probabilistic Risk/Safety Assessment 

      Yang, Liu (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2020:127, Doctoral thesis, 2020)
      This PhD thesis presents a new modeling framework, called finite degradation structures (FDSs), which can be used as a unified framework of combinatorial models in probabilistic risk/safety assessment. The so-called ...
    • Hygrothermal Properties of Compressed Earthen Bricks 

      Zhang, Lei; Yang, Liu; Jelle, Bjørn Petter; Wang, Yu; Gustavsen, Arild (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      The present study investigates the relationship between bulk density and hygrothermal behaviour of compressed earthen bricks. The experimental results show that the thermal conductivity linearly increases from 0.5228 W/(m ...
    • Review of adaptive thermal comfort models in built environmental regulatory documents 

      Carlucci, Salvatore; Bai, Lujian; de Dear, Richard; Yang, Liu (Journal article, 2018)
      This paper presents the experimental validation of a thermal model describing the ZEB Test Cells Laboratory, located at the Gløshaugen campus of NTNU and SINTEF in Trondheim, Norway. Besides, a local sensitivity analysis ...
    • Thermal Conductivity of Cement Stabilized Earth Blocks 

      Zhang, Lei; Gustavsen, Arild; Jelle, Bjørn Petter; Yang, Liu; Gao, Tao; Wang, Yu (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The present study examines the effect of bulk density and cement content on the thermal conductivity of cement stabilized earth blocks (CSEB). The experimental results show that the thermal conductivity increases as a ...
