  1. 1. Choice of tree species in the aftermath of two major storms : a qualitative study of private forest owners in southern Sweden

    University essay from SLU/Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre

    Author : Isak Lodin; [2016]
    Keywords : reforestation; small-scale private forest owners; Gudrun; Götaland; Norway spruce; reforestation grants;

    Abstract : The forests in Götaland, the most southern part of Sweden, are dominated by Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) H. Karst). This species is very important for the Swedish forest sector, but also associated with certain risks, such as wind-throw. READ MORE

  2. 2. Space Requirements for Technical System in Office Buildings - Air handling plant room model

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för bygg- och miljöteknik

    Author : Emil Kvist; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This study illustrates how the air handling plant room geometry depends on the Specific Fan Power (kW/(m3/s)) and airflow rate (m3/s) by using a theoretical model. The total shaft area of an office building relate to the gross external area and ultimately examines the possibility to utilize the model together with the shaft area study to investigate various sizes of office buildings share of technical area.
