Title
(EN) EXERGY-BASED LIFE CYCLE ASSESSMENT OF BUILDINGS
(FR) ANALYSE DU CYCLE DE VIE DE BÂTIMENTS BASÉE SUR L'EXERGIE
Abstract
(EN) Various examples are provided related to exergy-based life cycle assessment ofbuildings. In one example, a method includes obtaining building parameters of a building including material mass values of the building; determining exergy-based life cycle assessment (Exe-LCA) values of the building using the building parameters; and modifying a building design using the Exe-LCA values. The Exe-LCA values can include life cycle resource depletion, life cycle exergy loss of emissions and/or total Exe-LCA of the building. In another example, a system includes a computing device and an ExeLCA analysis program that can cause the computing device to determine Exe-LCA values of a building based at least in part upon building parameters of the building and provide at least one modification of a design of the building based upon the Exe-LCA values.
(FR) Selon divers exemples, l'invention concerne l'analyse du cycle de vie (LCA) de bâtiments basée sur l'exergie. Dans un exemple, un procédé comprend l'obtention de paramètres de construction d'un bâtiment comprenant des valeurs de masse de matériau du bâtiment; la détermination de valeurs d'analyse du cycle de vie basée sur l'exergie (Exe-LCA) du bâtiment à l'aide des paramètres de construction; et la modification d'une conception du bâtiment à l'aide des valeurs Exe-LCA. Les valeurs Exe-LCA peuvent comprendre un épuisement de ressources du cycle de vie, une perte d'exergie d'émissions du cycle de vie et/ou une valeur Exe-LCA totale du bâtiment. Dans un autre exemple, un système comprend un dispositif informatique et un programme d'analyse ExeLCA qui peut amener le dispositif informatique à déterminer des valeurs Exe-LCA d'un bâtiment sur la base, au moins en partie, de paramètres de construction du bâtiment et à fournir au moins une modification d'une conception du bâtiment sur la base des valeurs Exe-LCA.
