  • About the Edition

    Life Cycle assessment (LCA) is a tool for environmental decision-support in relation to products from the cradle to the grave. Until now, more emphasis has been put on the inclusion quantitative models and databases and on the design of guidebooks for applying LCA than on the integrative aspect of combining these models and data. This is a remarkable thing, since LCA in practice deals with thousands of quantitative data items that have to be combined in the correct manner. For this, one needs mathematical rules and algorithmic principles for carrying out an LCA. This book presents the first coherent treatment of the mathematical and algorithmic aspects of LCA. These computational aspects are presented in matrix form, so that a concise and elegant formulation is achieved. This form, moreover, provides a platform for further extension of analysis using perturbation theory, structural theory and economic input-output analysis.

    Prof. Dan M. Frangopol is the inaugural holder of the Fazlur R. Khan Endowed Chair of Structural Engineering and Architecture at Lehigh is "widely recognized as a leading educator and creator in the field of life-cycle engineering."()His main research interests are in the development and application of probabilistic concepts and methods to civil and marine engineering, including. Environmental life cycle assessment (LCA) has developed fast over the last three decades. Whereas LCA developed from merely energy analysis to a comprehensive environmental burden analysis in the s, full-fledged life cycle impact assessment and life cycle costing models were introduced in the s and s, and social-LCA and particularly.

    Purpose: Regional life-cycle assessment (LCA) is gaining an increasing attention among LCA scholars and practitioners. Here, we present a generalized computational structure for regional LCA, discuss in-depth the major challenges facing the field, and point to a direction in which we believe regional LCA should be by: Life Cycle Assessment is a guide for architects, engineers, and builders, presenting the principles and art of performing life cycle impact assessments of materials and whole buildings, including the need to define meaningful goals and objectives and critically evaluate analysis assumptions.

    Carbon accounting in corporations. Carbon accounting can be used as part of sustainability accounting by for-profit and non-profit organisations. A corporate or organisational "carbon" or greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions assessment promises to quantify the greenhouse gases produced directly and indirectly from a business or organisation's activities within a set of boundaries. This volume contains the papers presented at IALCCE, the Sixth International Symposium on Life-Cycle Civil Engineering (IALCCE), held in Ghent, Belgium, October , It consists of a book of extended abstracts and a USB device with full papers including the Fazlur R. Khan lecture, 8.

It does so in relation to a brief introduction of life cycle assessment (LCA), in which the various types of activities are outlined as well. Finally, the structure of the book is presented, along with a reading guide.

Purpose of the book Aim This book presents and discusses the computational structure of life cycle assessment. Life-Cycle Assessments can be modeled as a linear process system. This computational structure is fundamental for this work and was described in detail by [4]. Process data is summarized in a technology matrix A and an intervention matrix B.

She began working on LCA methodology in at the U.S. EPA's National Risk Management Research Laboratory in Cincinnati, Ohio. This book is a uniquely pedagogical while still comprehensive state-of-the-art description of LCA-methodology and its broad range of applications.

The five parts of the book conveniently provide: I) the history and context of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) with its central role as quantitative and.

She developed a framework and the associated computational structure to explicitly consider the role of ecosystem service in life cycle assessment, with the aim for supporting economically-superior and environmentally-beneficial decision making. This student version of the popular bestseller, Life Cycle Assessment Handbook, is not a watered-down version of the original, but retains all of the important information and valuable lessons provided in the first book, along with helpful problems and solutions for the student learning about Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
