  1. 1. Fire Safety of Facades

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Bogdan-Grigore Branisteanu-Albulescu; [2019]
    Keywords : polystyrene; graphene; façade; pyrolysis; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Façade fires are a big concern due to past incidents and the large number of victims encountered. Vertical flame spread mechanism specific to this type of fires is a complex phenomenon with parameters that are often difficult to be coupled. READ MORE

  2. 2. Comparing a full scale test with FDS, FireFOAM, McCaffrey & Eurocode

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : Erik Edin; Mattias Ström; [2019]
    Keywords : FDS; FireFOAM; OpenFOAM; Performance-Based Design; Localized fire.;

    Abstract : In the rapidly growing field of CFD-calculations (Computational Fluid Dynamics), companies and organizations are bringing forth new tools, tools that display an image of a given fire scenario. These tools are developed because they provide time efficiency as well as a sustainable economic approach. READ MORE

    Abstract : Diesel engines produce large amounts of nitrogen oxides (NOX) while running. Nitrogen oxides are highly toxic and also contribute towards the formation of tropospheric ozone. READ MORE

  4. 4. Indoor Air Pollution, Passive Ventilation Strategies and Thermal Comfort in Nepal

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Marianne Löwgren; [2019]
    Keywords : Energy poverty; Solid biomass fuels; Improved cooking stoves; Indoor air pollution; Carbon monoxide; Vernacular architecture; Passive ventilation; Air exchange rate; Indoor air quality; Thermal comfort; Operative temperature; Sustainable societal development; Social Sciences; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Indoor Air Pollution (IAP) resulting from indoor burning of solid biomass fuels in poorly ventilated kitchens is a severe health risk in parts of the world where energy poverty is prevalent. Passive ventilation, i.e. taking advantage of naturally induced airflow has been suggested as crucial in reducing IAP levels below safe limits. READ MORE

  5. 5. Use of Biochar Producing Cookstoves in Rural Kenya : Energy efficiency, air pollution concentrations and biochar production potential

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik; KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Siri Ranung; Jessica Ruud; [2019]
    Keywords : Biochar; improved cooking stoves; three stone open fire;

    Abstract : Household air pollution annually kills around 14 300 people in Kenya, due to the hazardous smoke of incomplete combustion coming from inefficient stoves. Exposure to this smokeleads to lethal health issues for the women and children staying in these kitchens, but the smoke also leads to a contribution to global warming. READ MORE
