  1. 1. Using Evidence Based Design to create Storm Water Management Solutions Supporting Human Well-being : a case study approach

    University essay from SLU/Department of Landscape Architecture, Planning and Management (from 130101)

    Author : Elin Lewin; Hampus Härstedt; [2022]
    Keywords : Evidence-based Design; Open Stormwater Management; Human Well-being; residential areas; Blue-green Infrastructure;

    Abstract : Climate change is expected to increase the intensity and frequency of precipitation around Europe which increases the risk of severe flooding in urban situations. As cities densify, the amount of infiltrateable surfaces in the cities reduces which also increases the risk of flooding. READ MORE

  2. 2. The cooling potential of Rain Gardens and Green Roofs - The influence on energy partitioning in Kvillebäcken, Gothenburg

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Julia Cederbrant; [2021-07-05]
    Keywords : urban energy balance; urban water balance; SUEWS; energy partitioning; Blue-green infrastructure;

    Abstract : Blue-green infrastructure (BGI) has become a popular way of combating the effects of climate change, both regarding heat mitigation and runoff from precipitation. This thesis aims to understand the potential of two BGI types, namely rain gardens and green roofs, of increasing the latent heat fraction in an urban area and thereby also understand the possible cooling effect from these measures.

  3. 3. Sorption of Stormwater Pollutants for Five Material Mixtures: A batch Equlibrium Study

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Fredrik Rydholm; [2021]
    Keywords : Sorption; Swale; Metals; Phosphorus; Treatment; Batch equilibrium test; isoterms; Low-cost material;

    Abstract : Blue-green infrastructure have been more lucrative during the last 30 years, since urbanizationbrings more impervious surfaces that increases stormwater runoff volumes. Amongst thedifferent blue-green infrastructures there are e.g., constructed wetlands and swales. READ MORE

    Abstract : Intradialytic hypotension (IDH) is a major drawback of haemodialysis and occurs in more than every fifth dialysis treatment. There is a need for real-time measurement, with an ability to detect IDH before it occurs. Photoplethysmography (PPG) may provide sufficient information about hemodynamic status to prevent IDH.
