  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Lateral stabilisation in multi-storey timber volume element buildings

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper; Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik

    Author : Elin Jönsson; [2019]
    Keywords : TVE; multi-storey building; timber volume element; lateral stability; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The use of timber volume elements (TVEs) in residential multi-storey buildings is increasing in popularity. Manufacturing methods and building processes have been streamlined to improve product quality. READ MORE

  3. 3. Simulation of Hardening of the MahanaKhon Tower Mat Foundation

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Zakaria Kazi-tani; [2019]
    Keywords : Hydration; MahanaKhon tower; mat foundation; young concrete; temperature development; thermal stresses; cracking; fly ash; finite element analysis; COMSOL Multiphysics; Hydratation; MahanaKhon tower; bottenplatta; ung betong; temperaturutveckling; termiska spänningar; sprickbildning; flygaska; finita elementanalys; COMSOL Multiphysics;

    Abstract : Cement hydration is the result of a series of simultaneous chemical reactions occurring during the production of concrete. An excessive amount of heat is generated, which consequently may give rise to thermal stresses and cause early age cracks in concrete that may affect its structural integrity, and load bearing capacity.

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI); KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Victor Thun; Kristin Salmi; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In 2015, cardiovascular diseases caused the death of 17.7 million people - 31 % of all deaths globally - making it deadlier than any other cause.Cardiovascular diseases often result from Arteriosclerosis, a disease where plaque builds up and clogs arteries. READ MORE

  5. 5. A micro-CT investigation of density changes in pressboard due to compression

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad mekanik

    Author : Johan Stjärnesund; [2018]
    Keywords : Micro computed tomography; μCT; pressboard; density; densification;

    Abstract : Pressboard, a high-density cellulose-based product, is used both as load bearing structures and dielectric insulation in oil-filled power transformers. During transformer operation, mechanical forces and vibrations are applied on the material. READ MORE
