  1. 1. Experimental and computational analysis of the thermal degradation and the loss of strength of engineered wood-based panels

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Wickramasooriyage Devmini Kularatne; [2022]
    Keywords : Oriented strand board; thermal decomposition; mechanical degradation; heat transfer modelling; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The current trends in the construction industry push toward materials that are more sustainable and environmentally friendlier than more traditional building materials such as concrete and steel. Timber and timber composites are one of the most popular materials on this list, due to both their mechanical strength and pleasant aesthetics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Design of high performance buildings : Vulnerability of buildings to climate change from an energy perspective

    University essay from KTH/Hållbara byggnader

    Author : Robin Gobert; [2022]
    Keywords : Climate Change; High Performance Buildings; Dynamic Thermal Simulations; Thermal Regulation; Environmental Regulation; Cooling Needs; Heating Needs; Representative Data; Big Data; Clustering;

    Abstract : The challenge of climate change is twofold: to mitigate (prevent) the causes of climate change and to prepare (adapt) to the inevitable effects and consequences. Building and construction are key sectors for decarbonisation (mitigation). READ MORE

  3. 3. Theoretical and experimental investigation of themagneto-optical eect in graphene in the THz region

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/FREIA

    Author : Mircea-George Coman; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In many optics applications we need lenses with dynamically tunable focal lengths. One design of such a lensis developed in and it relies on the magneto-optical eect. In this design, a graphene layer is placed ina magnetic eld that varies quadratically in space. READ MORE

  4. 4. Introducing Paper Pallets to the IKEA Food Supply Chain - What is the Potential and Will the Temperature be Retained during Transportation?

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk logistik

    Author : Ellen Bengtsson; Pernilla Johansson; [2022]

    Abstract : Title: Introducing Paper Pallets to the IKEA Food Supply Chain - What are the Potentials and Will the Temperature be Retained during Transport? Contribution: This thesis is produced with equal efforts from both authors, where each author has been involved in each and every step of the process. Problem description: Paper pallets with 50 mm feet have been used in IKEA Furniture for several years with both positive financial and environmental benefits. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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.
