  1. 1. Temperature distribution in air tight cavities of steel framed modular buildings when exposed to fire

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

    Author : Elin Bergroth; Greta Torstensson; [2019]
    Keywords : Cavities; fire furnace; fire test; modular building; steel; TASEF; Brandugn; brandtest; hålrum; modulbyggnader; stål; TASEF;

    Abstract : A common way to construct large buildings is by assemble prefabricated modules around a load bearing steel construction. However, if a fire occurs these buildings can be subject to a rapid fire spread due to its cellular nature. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of a Prefabricated Concrete Skew Angle Slab Bridge

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggteknik (BY)

    Author : Pär Bengtsson; Johan Wallin; [2019]
    Keywords : Finite Element Model; Skew Angle Slabs; Slab Bridge; Prefabrication;

    Abstract : Prefabricated concrete elements are widely used in the construction industry today. With advantages such as time savings, increased safety at the construction site and minimized material usage, prefab becomes a major challenger to the traditional on-site casting construction method.

  3. 3. 3D Finite Element Modelling of ICRH in JET

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Björn Ljungberg; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This master's thesis assesses the possibility of using the nite element method to solve the electromagneticwave equation in a fusion plasma in 3D. In particular, the frequency is chosen to match that of ioncyclotron resonance heating in the fusion experiment JET. READ MORE

  4. 4. Probabilistic non-linear finite element analysis of concrete buttress dams

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

    Author : Adrian Ulfberg; [2019]
    Keywords : ATENA; FREET; SARA; probabilistic; numerical; Kalhovd; FEA; FEM;

    Abstract : Assessment of concrete buttress dams today consists of using analytical methods to investigate the stability in different failure modes. However, they simplify the problem at hand and neglect certain important features linked to geometry and thus not truthfully appraise the structures real stability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Finite element modelling of strained nanowire heterostructures

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Alexander Grape Wyke; [2019]
    Keywords : Strain; nanowire; heterostructure; physics; nanophysics; COMSOL; simulation; lattice; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : When two materials with different lattice constants are grown together, this generates stress between them, and therefore strain. This strain causes them to have different thermal and electrical properties, and this is especially important on the nanoscale where changes have large impacts. READ MORE
