  1. 1. Determination of Thermal Conductivity of Wood Exposed to Fire based on Small Scale Laboratory Trials for Finite Element Calculations

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Johnny Chung; [2017]
    Keywords : Wood; Cone Calorimeter. Conductivity; Fire; Temperature; TASEF; Finite element method; Trä; Konkalorimeter; Konduktivitet; Brand; Temperatur; TASEF; Finita elementmetoden;

    Abstract : This study describes an approach to determine the thermal conductivity of wood at elevated temperatures. The aim is to be able to use the developed conductivity as input in structural elements in finite element calculations. READ MORE

  2. 2. Odlingssubstrat för vednedbrytande matsvampar : hur ostronskivlingens och shiitakens substratpreferenser påverkar vilka organiska restprodukter som lämpas för substrattillverkning

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Simon Hannus; [2017]
    Keywords : Lentinula; Pleurotus; svamp; lignocellulosa; restprodukter; odlingssubstrat; enzymer; substrattillverkning; saprotrof;

    Abstract : Sedan tidigt 2000-tal har den globala produktionen för matsvamp varit under stor tillväxt för att förse en växande marknad, vilket har bidragit till att vednedbrytande matsvampar som ostronskivling och shiitake har börjat få allt större erkännande i västvärlden, där champinjon fortfarande dominerar. För inhemsk produktion av matsvamp är svenska svampodlare till stor del beroende av import av odlingssubstrat, vilket är märkligt då förutsättningarna för dess tillverkning även bör finnas i Sverige.

  3. 3. Understanding poverty-environment interactions : the political ecology of smallholder tobacco production in Marondera District, Eastern Zimbabwe

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Richwell Tryson Musoma; [2016]
    Keywords : poverty-environment interactions; environmental degradation; tobacco; political ecology; sustainable livelihoods;

    Abstract : Poverty and environmental degradation are among the severest challenges faced in the developing countries. Since the rise of the sustainable development paradigm, poverty came to be identified as one of the major causes of environmental degradation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Watershed-based payment for ecosystem services in Liberia: Examining prospects and challenges for implementation in the St. Paul River Basin

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Internationella miljöinstitutet

    Author : Phillip Innis; [2016]
    Keywords : payments for watershed services; ecosystem services; sustainable land-use practices; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : Payments for watershed services (PWS) are intended to provide incentives to land users to adopt sustainable land management practices. They are also increasingly viewed as having positive impacts on the livelihood of local communities around protected areas. The St. Paul River, located in the St. READ MORE

  5. 5. Production and biodegradability of dissolved organic carbon from dIfferent litter sources

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Carlos Arellano; [2015]
    Keywords : biogeochemical cycles; physical geography and ecosystem analysis; dissolved organic carbon; carbon cycle; soil biogeochemistry; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The movement of carbon on Earth is based on exchange between pools that represent carbon in different physical forms, differing in chemical composition, structure and function. Dissolved organic carbon plays an important role in ecosystems because of its mobility, which can be relatively high in saturated soils, and because it is the most available fraction of organic matter for microorganisms in soil, being particularly active in microbial degradation processes through soil profile.
