  1. 1. Epidotization as an Effect of Fluid Rock Interaction, Recorded by a Granitoid From Hågadalen, Uppsala

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Mineralogi, petrologi och tektonik

    Author : Linn Barreby; [2022]
    Keywords : Fluids; Fluid Transport; Metamorphism; Metasomatism; Saussuritization; Epidote Group; Geology; Bedrock; Fluider; Fluidtransport; Metamorfos; Metasomatism; Saussuritisering; Epidot Gruppen; Geologi; Berggrund;

    Abstract : A common driving mechanism of metamorphic processes, from which secondary mineralizations and structures develop in a protolith, is known to be a change of the immediate P-T environment that a rock resides in. A factor in this process, which is poorly understood, however, is how the presence of metamorphic fluids in a system, influences the alteration of primary igneous rocks. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of influence from matedness on the peak shear strength of natural rock joints

    University essay from KTH/Byggvetenskap

    Author : Emil Andersson; [2019]
    Keywords : Rock joints; Peak shear strength; Matedness; Casagrande et al. criterion; Peak friction angle; Shear strength; Bergssprickor; Maximal skjuvhållfasthet; Passning; Casagrande et al. kriterium; Friktionsvinkel; Skjuvhållfasthet;

    Abstract : In Sweden, the rock mass is commonly used for construction of tunnels and caverns. The rockmass is also used as a foundation for large structures such as bridge abutments and dams. Forthese structures, the understanding of the rock mechanical properties play a key role for reachingan acceptable safety level and minimizing cost. READ MORE

  3. 3. An alarm system for pore pressure measurements in the foundation ofconcrete dams : a case study of Storfinnforsen buttress dam

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Daniel Falcão de Queiroz; [2018]
    Keywords : Buttress dams; dam foundation; pore pressure; alarm system; alarm limits; sliding in the rock mass; uplift pressure; piezometers.; Lamelldammar; dammgrundläggning; portryck; alarm system; alarmgränser; glidning i bergmassan; upptryck; portrycksmätare;

    Abstract : Concrete buttress dams are relatively light structures and less demandingon foundations; because of that, they may have problems with upliftforces and horizontal joints in the area of the dam´s foundation maypresent a failure mode through sliding. The Storfinnforsen dam, thelargest concrete dam in Sweden, had its foundation studied recently andthe discovery of sub-horizontal joints in the bedrock led to the necessityof having the safety of the dam foundation to sliding assessed.

  4. 4. Radiation Effects on KBS-3 Barriers: SKB’s work so far

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemivetenskap (CHE)

    Author : Ismael Safi; [2017]
    Keywords : KBS-3; Repository; Radiation; Bentonite; Montmorillonite;

    Abstract : In the Swedish concept for final disposal of spent nuclear fuel, referred to as KBS-3, a three-layered protection system is used. The system consists of a copper canister holding the spent nuclear fuel deposited 500 meters in a repository built in groundwater saturated granitic rock. READ MORE

  5. 5. Seismic tomography as an instrument for structural evaluation in the Printzsköld and Alliansen ore bodies, Malmberget

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

    Author : Linus Jonsson; [2017]
    Keywords : Geology; Seismic tomography; LKAB;

    Abstract : The Malmberget deposit is one of the major apatite iron ores in Europe, located in northern Norrbotten. As the mining in Malmberget proceeds deeper more challenges with the stability have been faced. When the stress distribution of a rock mass exceeds the rock strength energy in form of seismic waves is released. READ MORE
