  1. 1. Modelling of a compensated foundation in GeoSuite Settlement

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik; KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Linnea Hermansson; Rebecka Söderberg; [2020]
    Keywords : Compensated foundations; Load compensation; Lightweight material; Clay; Settlements; Creep; GeoSuite Settlement; Kompensationsgrundläggning; Lastkompensation; Lättfyllning; Lera; Sättningar; Krypning; GeoSuite Sättning;

    Abstract : The world today is constantly growing, creating a need of new roads and residential areas. New constructions lead to an increased load onto the soil, which can result in deformations when the soil layers underneath are compressed. To reduce the increased load on the soil, a compensated foundation can be used. READ MORE

  2. 2. Acoustic Characterization of the Cellulose-coated Perfluorocarbon Droplets based on Phase Velocity Measurements

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Emma Lindroth; [2020]
    Keywords : Ultrasound; Droplets; Contrast agent; Cellulose; Perfluorocarbon; Acoustic characterization; Non-destructive evaluation; Phase velocity; Bulk modulus; Compressibility;

    Abstract : Today, microbubbles are one of the most commonly used ultrasound contrast agents, since their high compressibility results in a strongly scattered signal. Despite this advantage, microbubbles experience limitations by the decreased stability and large diameter. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Paper Insulation Packaging: Evaluation of Thermal and Logistics Performance. A Case Study at HelloFresh

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Förpackningslogistik

    Author : Fernando Guardiola Ramírez; [2019]
    Keywords : thermal insulation packaging; paper-based; ice melt test; thermography; packaging scorecard; meal kit industry; Technology and Engineering; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : The most common thermally insulated packaging used today is plastic-based and customer behavior towards plastic materials has changed rapidly in recent years. The Meal Kit Industry has a particular need for insulated packaging/cool pouch (CP) and is looking to shift from plastic materials to more paper-based ones. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analytic, Simulation and Experimental Analysis of Fluid-Pipe Systems

    University essay from KTH/MWL Marcus Wallenberg Laboratoriet

    Author : Siddharth Venkataraman; [2018]
    Keywords : fluid-structure interaction; modal interaction model; viscosity;

    Abstract : Inviscid fluid inside thin pipe system is first analytically solved for eigenfrequencies and eigenmodes using Modal Interaction Model method with fluid-structure interaction condition at boundary. Shear-diaphragm boundary condition is used for comparing and validating Analytic results with Simulation using COMSOL Multiphysics. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fines Content and Density Effects on Tailings Behaviour : A Laboratory Study on Geotechnical Properties

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Geoteknologi

    Author : Viktor Wiklund; [2018]
    Keywords : strength; compressibility; permeability; anrikningssand; hållfasthet; konsolidering; permeabilitet;

    Abstract : Tailings are a rest product from the extraction of metals and minerals, and is therefore produced in large volumes by all mining companies. One common way to store tailings material is to deposit it as a hydraulic slurry on a tailings impoundment, where the tailings are held in place by tailings dams. READ MORE
