Dataset for "Rational whole-life carbon assessment using a dynamic climate model: Comparison of a concrete, steel and timber building structure"

This dataset concerns a research study on the embodied carbon assessment of building structures. It includes the numerical data which is plotted in the journal paper titled "Embodied carbon assessment using a dynamic climate model: Case-study comparison of a concrete, steel and timber building structure".

The data is in .csv format and is output from a numerical dynamic life cycle assessment, which models the climate impacts of greenhouse gas emissions. Each file relates to a figure in the associated paper, with full descriptions in the 'read-me' file.

Keywords:
Structural engineering, Life cycle assessment, Building design, embodied carbon, timber structures, climate emergency
Subjects:
Civil engineering and built environment
Climate and climate change

Documentation

Data collection method:

The data is generated using a dynamic numerical climate model, as described in the associated publication. This enables a static embodied carbon calculation to be interpreted in terms of its climate impacts. Results are given on an annual sampling rate.

Additional information:

The file ReadMe.txt provides details on how the CSV files have been structured.
