Heat island effects in urban life cycle assessment: Novel insights to include the effects of the urban heat island and UHI‐mitigation measures in LCA for effective policy making

Journal Article
Susca, T., & Pomponi, F. (in press)
Heat island effects in urban life cycle assessment: Novel insights to include the effects of the urban heat island and UHI‐mitigation measures in LCA for effective policy making. Journal of Industrial Ecology, https://doi.org/10.1111/jiec.12980
Urbanization often entails a surge in urban temperature compared to the rural surroundings: the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect. Such a temperature increase triggers the format...

Constructing shared professional vision in design work: the role of visual objects and their material mediation

Journal Article
Comi, A., Jaradat, S., & Whyte, J. (2019)
Constructing shared professional vision in design work: the role of visual objects and their material mediation. Design Studies, 64, 90-123. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.destud.2019.06.003
The design process requires coordination between professions that have different ways of seeing. Using ethnographic data from a building project, this paper explores how archi...

Particle-scale interaction in sand-rubber mixtures and their influence on energy dissipation mechanisms

Journal Article
Fonseca, J., Riaz, A., Bernal-Sanchez, J., Barreto Gonzalez, D., McDougall, J., Miranda Manzanares, M., …Dimitriadi, V. (2019)
Particle-scale interaction in sand-rubber mixtures and their influence on energy dissipation mechanisms. Géotechnique Letters, 9(4), 1-6. https://doi.org/10.1680/jgele.18.00221
Sand-rubber mixture (SRm) behaviour is affected by rubber content (RC) whilst dissipation in sands is caused by inter-particle sliding. Dissipation in SRm is as, or more signi...
