  1. 1. Established forest firefighting techniques: A qualitative review of practices among the Swedish fire services.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Muhammad Humza Khan; [2021]
    Keywords : Forest fires; firefighting techniques; Scientometric analysis; Effectiveness; Questionnaire; Direct attack; Indirect attack; Firelines; Prescribed burning; Aerial firefighting; Flanking; Hot-spotting; Cold trailing.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Methods and equipment used for fighting forest fires are different from the ones used in urban fires. Generally, the wildfires are intense, require more resources and tend to spread rapidly. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vibration reduction over junctions in buildings

    University essay from KTH/Marcus Wallenberg Laboratoriet MWL

    Author : Alexander Forsberg; Aras Wali; [2021]
    Keywords : Vibration reduction; Junction; Building acoustics; Vibrations minskning; Knutpunkt; Byggnadsakustik;

    Abstract : Structure borne sound can travel multiple paths from one office to another and choosing to sound insulate a specific building element can be difficult since all the building elements are connected together and form a coupled system. The current approach by engineers when investigating transmission paths between spaces in a building is using a computer model and assuming that the junctions are firmly clamped or free. READ MORE

  3. 3. Game engine based auralization of airborne sound insulation

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Jimmy Forsman; [2018]
    Keywords : Auralization; Building acoustics; Airborne sound insulation; EN 12354-1; Room acoustics; Audio engines for virtual reality; Game engine;

    Abstract : Describing planned acoustic design by single number ratings yields a weak link to the subjective event, especially when the single number ratings are interpreted by others than experienced acousticians. When developing infrastructure, tools for decision making needs to address visual and aural perception. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure-borne sound transmission in wall-floor timber junctions with damping elastomers

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

    Author : Sarah Stenberg; Adrien Vercruysse; [2016]
    Keywords : Elastomers; Sound Flanking Transmission; Vibrations Flanking Transmission; Wall-floor junctions; Structural Dynamics;

    Abstract : The wooden multi-storey building industry is facing persistent sound transmission problems at low frequencies. Inserting elastomers within wall-floor junctions is common usage nevertheless no accurate studies have elucidated the real behavior of those nonlinear combined materials yet. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Use of Formations in Land Warfare : a statistical analysis

    University essay from KTH/Teoretisk fysik; KTH/Teoretisk fysik

    Author : Andreas Forstén; Josephine Letzner; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This paper investigates military formations and tries to give an answer to the question of how geometry affects outcomes of battles. The investigation has primarily been done with the aid of a model based on Markov chains. This method was then complemented with simulations made in Unity 3D. READ MORE
