Klimata adaptīvās ēku norobežojošās konstrukcijas

Summary of the Doctoral Thesis

Toms Mols, Riga Technical University, Latvia

The aim of the Thesis is to develop the methodology for evaluation of application of climate-adaptive building solutions in reaching zero energy buildings.

The Doctoral Thesis consists of an introduction, three chapters and conclusions. Chapter 1 reveals the current state of research of indoor microclimate effect on human productivity, energy efficiency measures in buildings and climate-adaptive building envelopes. Chapter 2 describes the methodology of performing assessments of indoor microclimate, multi-criteria analysis of climate-adaptive building envelopes and inverse modeling. Chapter 3 comprises the results of the study describing the discovered measurements, calculated performance outcomes, multi-criteria analysis and the output of developed system dynamics model.

In the Thesis the following hypothesis was proposed: Climate-adaptive building solutions contribute to achieving a zero-energy building level while maintaining good indoor microclimate.

Conclusions after measurements, tests and calculations confirm the proposed hypothesis.
