  1. 1. Regional Regression Models of Mean Annual Streamflow and Design Flow in a Tropical Region of Colombia.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Anisa Zigaf Elfellah; Amanda Eriksson; [2018]
    Keywords : mean annual streamflow; extreme flow; design flow; regional regression model; ungauged watershed; hydrological homogeneous region; Gumbel distribution; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A responsible and sustainable water resources management is important. It is also crucial to take the presence of watercourses into account during design of hydraulic structures such as small dams and bridges. Doing this requires knowledge of estimates of annual streamflow and extreme flows to be used for design purposes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Finite element analysis of temperature in hardening concrete using isothermal calorimetric data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : John Mac; [2017]
    Keywords : isoconversion; isothermal calorimetry; thermal analysis; finite element method; numerical simulation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The produced heat in hardening concrete is of special importance to consider as the temperature rise within a large concrete structure can become such high that the structure may experience thermal cracking. With use of a simulation program that is based on the finite element method, the temperatures within the structure can be estimated to predict possible crack development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Watering down justice : energy justice in the Inga dams case in the DRC

    University essay from Lunds universitet/LUCSUS

    Author : Ruth Krüger; [2017]
    Keywords : hydroelectric dams; energy justice; sustainability science; Democratic Republic of Congo; post-colonial context; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is energy justice and sustainability science, and the argument is based on a case study of the Inga dams. Substantial further development of hydropower is planned at the Inga dams, located on the Congo River in the Democratic Republic of Congo. READ MORE

  4. 4. Maternal body condition : effect on time of calving, offspring survival and body weight in reindeer

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Caroline Korpinen; [2017]
    Keywords : reindeer; calf; mortality; weight; condition; nutrition; survival; predators;

    Abstract : The reindeer husbandry faces many challenges and one of the most crucial is the high calf mortality. As some reindeer herding districts have their calving grounds based in the forest, they are at high risk of losing a large number of the calves each season to brown bear predation as the bears also rely heavily on the forest as their natural habitat.

  5. 5. Storm water treatment in a multi-step system compared to a single-step system

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Soil and Environment

    Author : Maria Schoeps; [2017]
    Keywords : storm water; storm water treatment; open storm water system; storm water dams; multi-step treatment; StormTac; pollutant load;

    Abstract : Urban areas are expanding at an increasing pace around the world as well as surfaces with impervious layers, such as streets and rooftops. Precipitation, melt water and water from human activities, which temporarily flow on these surfaces are defined as storm water. READ MORE
