  1. 1. Use of Digital Image Correlation for monitoring of concrete buttress dam failure model tests

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Jarl Jensen; Markus Leijström; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The monitoring of dam structures is of great importance for the safety of the dam.A dam failure can cause disastrous consequences for people and infrastructure downstream.Dams are monitored by periodic inspections and monitoring systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. Low-carbon concretes in infrastructures : Applicability, potential and carbon footprint focusing on the Parisian Metro Line L18

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Romain Durand; [2022]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Low-carbon concretes are more and more commonly used to limit the environmental impact of concrete structures. Among concrete structures, infrastructures are characterized by their high load-bearing function (foundations, bridges, aqueducts, dams, etc.). READ MORE

  3. 3. Influence of Foundation Modelling on the Seismic Response of a Concrete Dam

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Stella Harrison; Siri Nöjd; [2021]
    Keywords : concrete dam; earthquake; finite element analysis; free-field forces; mass foundation; betong dam; jordbävning; finita element analys; free-field forces; inkluderad bergsmassa;

    Abstract : It is of great importance to ensure the structural safety of dams during earthquakes since a failure may cause catastrophic consequences. Conventional computation of the structural response of dams is based on a simplified approach where the foundation is considered as massless. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigating eco-hydrological relationships between fishes and flow regimes in Spanish rivers

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Celia Ramos Sanchez; [2021]
    Keywords : Eco-hydrological relationships; Fish metrics; Hydrological metrics; Environmental flows; Hydrological alteration; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : There is currently a need in Spain for monitoring the effects of the environmental flows. The use of eco-hydrological relationships to design both environmental flows regimes and the monitoring programs that track their effects on riverine ecosystems is highly recommended. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Battle of Orléans : The design process of an audio-tactile social game with older late-blind players

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för design (DE)

    Author : Lacey Dams; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This work focuses on the creation of asocial game for older late-blind players,using participatory design.Even though the board game industry isbooming, accessible versions are scarceand since a substantial part of games areprimarily based on visual stimuli they arerather hard or impossible to translate intoa tactile version.
