    Application of workshop technique to sustainable design2005In: the Proceedings of the SB05 Tokyo: Action for Sustainability - The 2005 World Sustainable Building Conference in Tokyo, Japan, 27 - 29 September 2005, 2005, p. 1157-1162Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    "Sustainability" is only one of the many new definitions in the coating industry over last decade, but one, which has the greatest potential to affect change. To achieve sustainable development we must consider all kind of coatings impact into the environment, including environmental economic and social load. This kind of conceptual thinking can be applied at any level and for any decision-making process. The workshop method, developed in this study, expedites the selection of coating during conceptual design by developing a set of expressions that relate coating technical performance indicators (colour change, flaking, etc.) to environmental and economic impacts. These performance-based relationships provide a common ground for choosing among similarly functioning coating systems and provide insight for minimizing the environmental burdens. This paper has also described the process of testing a workshop technique for involving stakeholders and decision makers in generating "sustainable design" for exterior wood coatings. In this sense, the workshop method developed in this study is a tool in this process. One important element in the process of policy formulation in any workshop method is procedural justice, which is based on the multiple criteria analysis here.

    Integrated life-cycle design of coatings on exterior wood: Part 2: Life-cycle assessment2004In: Surface Coatings International Part B - Coatings Transactions, ISSN 1476-4865, E-ISSN 1742-0261, Vol. 87, no 3, p. 211-220Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study has shown that the environmental impact from the various studied coatings are the dependent criteria on their service lives. The dependence of these criteria has been studied with the help of the integrated design model, developed in this study especially for coatings on exterior wood.

    The integrated design for the overall performance showed that the water-borne acrylic coating and the water-borne acrylic stain are the best choice as regards the environmental impact and durability of the coatings.

    The discussed surface coating systems were a solvent-borne alkyd coating, a water-borne acrylic coating, a water-borne acrylic stain, a solvent-borne alkyd stain and alkyd oil.

    Abstract [en]

    In this study, the statistical distribution of the reference service life of exterior wood coatings has been calculated for two coating systems: an alkyd oil and a solvent-borne alkyd (stain). The estimated service life has been evaluated, based on exposure tests and on the assessment of experts for another three coating systems (namely a solvent-borne alkyd coating, a water-borne acrylic coating, and a water-borne acrylic stain). It has been shown that the combination of a standard procedure for the measurement of cracking and statistical tools, such as reliability-based methodologies, for predicting the service life of coating systems gives more information regarding reference service life data than purely by a measurement of cracking.

    Optimization parameter sets for sustainable concrete in tunnels2019In: ISEC 2019 - 10th International Structural Engineering and Construction Conference2019, ISEC Press , 2019Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Public and private clients are beginning to set complex optimization requirements, taking into consideration environmental and cost-efficiency parameters over the built construction’s lifetime. The early design process is currently irreversible and this makes it difficult to change a concrete structure in the later detailed design stage, when more accurate information is available regarding environmental impact and life-cycle costs. There is a dilemma in complying with existing standards to achieve technical requirements while optimizing a concrete structure in order to reduce the climate impact. The long-term goal of the project is to develop a new theoretical concept for dynamic optimization strategies which can be applicable to the early design, the client-requirement preparation, the detailed design, the production and the follow-up stages. This paper presents the results of the up-start phase of the project. Our work has focused on the identification of current practice regarding clients’ requirements for technical, environmental and cost-efficiency parameters. An analysis of these requirements with sprayed concrete in a number of ongoing projects has led to the identification of optimization parameter sets. The project has also shown how the physical values of those parameters can be collected from existing statistics, experience recovery databases and previous project requirements, or calculated according to standardized methods and tools. The concept developed will be used in a demonstrative modeling in the next project step.

    LCA application to Russian conditions2002In: The International Journal of Life Cycle Assessment, ISSN 0948-3349, E-ISSN 1614-7502, Vol. 7, no 6, p. 349-357Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The environmental impact assessment existing in the Russian Federation at the present moment cannot provide potential scenarios of consequences for the environment from examined processes, since its goal is to calculate the money equivalent of emissions to the environment. Also, it cannot help the environmental specialist to choose the most environmentally sustainable scenario or process, proceeding from the whole life cycle of the object, because it is usually performed only for the use phase of an object.

    This study also aims to show possibilities for applying LCA methodology, as accepted in the ISO standards series 14040, and as applied to Russian conditions. The main purpose was to investigate a possibility of using the existing environmental impact assessment as the inventory stage in the LCA. As the minor goal, normalisation and weighting factor data for the Russian Federation were calculated on the basis of energy consumption extrapolation.

    In this paper, the environmental impacts are associated with a sewage wastewater facility. The inventory analysis is performed with data obtained from the MosvodokanalNIIproject (Moscow Research Institute for sewage wastewater treatment facilities) and supplemented with the SimaPro 5.0 database (the Netherlands). The environmental impact categories included and discussed in this study are eutrophication, global warming, landfill, acidification, ozone layer depletion and photochemical ozone creation. This study was performed for several design alternatives or scenarios of the wastewater facility. According to the LCA performed in this study, the most environmentally sustainable scenario is that which has the most effective and complicated treatment of sewage water and sludge.
