  1. 1. Is Investment Leakage for the Swedish FDI-flows Caused by the EU ETS? A study examining the connection between the EU Emission Trading System and Swedish foreign direct investment flows in the iron and steel sector

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Anna Hedenbergh; Alma Hemberg; [2018-07-06]
    Keywords : EU ETS; carbon leakage; difference-in-differences; emission-intensive industries; Foreign Direct Investments FDI ; investment leakage; operational leakage; permits; Pollution Haven Effect; Porter Hypothesis; relocation; Samhällsvetenskapligt miljövetarprogram;

    Abstract : In the recent decades, the subject of a shift of emission from regions with stringent regulation to developing countries has arisen. At the same time, regulated countries such as Sweden has experienced less industrial growth. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental Investigation of Added Mass and Damping on a Model Kaplan Turbine for Rotor Dynamic Analysis

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Timmy Nyman; [2018]
    Keywords : Added mass; added damping; rotor dynamics; kaplan turbine; vibrations; fluid dynamics;

    Abstract : The concept of added hydrodynamic properties such as added mass is of importance in modern hydropower development, mainly for rotor dynamic calculations. Added mass could result in reduced natural frequencies and altered mode compared to existing simulation models. READ MORE

  3. 3. Seismic analysis and retrofitting of an existing multi-storey building in Stockholm

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad; KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Matilda Muca; Celine Haikal; [2018]
    Keywords : Earthquakes; seismic analysis; retrofitting; frequency; multi-storey building; shear wall; steel bracing; Jordbävningar; seismisk analys; förbättring av skadade byggnader; flervånings-byggnad; skjuvvägg; stålfackverk;

    Abstract : Throughout the years earthquakes are a huge concern for structures; causing losses of peoples’ lives, damages and collapse of homes. Usually, most of the buildings that collapse or have serious damages are mostly old buildings that do not fulfil any longer the updated regulations and building codes concerning seismic design.

  4. 4. Biochar in the Höganäs sponge iron process – techno-economic analysis of integrated production

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Oscar Olofsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Techno-economic analysis; system modeling; system integration; biochar; biomass; pyrolysis; sponge iron;

    Abstract : Biomass-based reducing agents have a potential to substitute fossil reducing agents in the steel industry. However, the industrial use of biomass-based reducing agents is currently in an early stage of development and has not yet been considered as a means to reduce fossil CO2 emissions, even though the use of fossil-based reducing agents for the iron and steel making cause the highest share of CO2 emissions.

  5. 5. Virtual Sensing for Fatigue Assessment of the Rautasjokk Bridge

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad; KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Sara Lundman; Patrick Parnéus; [2018]
    Keywords : Fatigue Assessment; Virtual Sensing; Steel Bridges; Eurocode; Field Monitoring; Finite Element Model;

    Abstract : This thesis treats virtual sensing for fatigue assessment of steel bridges. The purpose is to develop avirtual sensing method to use in the fatigue assessment process. The aim for the virtual sensing method is to only depend on strain measurements located on the bridge structure. READ MORE
