  1. 1. Urban development consequences of the riverine floods in the Western Balkans: Analysing Belgrade

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Santiago Lema Burgos; [2020]
    Keywords : Urban resilience; flooding risk reduction; land use plan; flood preparedness; flood adaptation.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Rapid urbanisation coupled with unplanned development create the perfect recipe for a disaster, the risk of which has increased with climate change-related uncertainties. Belgrade’s high population growth rate and exposure to riverine flooding presents such a case. READ MORE

  2. 2. Timber Concrete Composite floors with Cross Laminated Timber - Structural behavior & Design

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Albin Forsberg; Filip Farbäck; [2020]
    Keywords : timber concrete composite; TCC; floors; cross-laminated timber; CLT; structural behavior; design methods; Gamma method; Equivalent gamma method; Extended gamma method; RFEM; first natural frequency; serviceability limit state; ultimate limit state; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : På grund av den ökade miljö- och klimatmedvetenheten har övergången till förnybara material påskyndats, och detsamma gäller intresset för träbyggande. Med att bygga högt i trä kommer dock ett flertal konstruktionsmässiga utmaningar, där en av utmaningarna är dynamik på grund av träets låga egenvikt jämfört med andra mer konventionella byggnadsmaterial.

    Abstract : Increasing CO₂ emission is considered as the main reason for global warming in the world. One of the reasons for producing CO₂ is using of fossil-based materials in the construction projects. READ MORE

  4. 4. Defining requirements of PET scrap for open loop recycling of post-industrial waste

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Josephine Digné; [2020]
    Keywords : Chemical Engineering; plastics; thermoplastics; PET; polyethylene terephthalate; foamed plastics; recycling; post-industrial waste; circular economy; återvinning; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : To reduce the environmental impact and minimize the exploitation of the depleting re-sources, the transition to a circular economy is vital. It proposes an economy of reduced ma-terial consumption and increased reuse and recycling of plastics and other materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. What's Next in Sustainable Acoustic Materials?

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Produktutveckling

    Author : Klas Hellqvist; Anna Andersson; [2020]
    Keywords : Sustainability; Acoustics; Materials; Sound Absorption; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : As industries have begun to rethink the way they design, make and dispose of products for the purpose of sustainable development, manufacturers of acoustic products have been slow off the mark. The majority of acoustic products are still made of primarily virgin material made from petrochemical resources, which have a significant impact on the environment. READ MORE
