    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM); KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Hanna Hermansson; Louise Lundblad; [2019]
    Keywords : Arduino; mechatronics; irrigation system; moisture; plant; Arduino; mekatronik; bevattningssystem; jordfuktighet; växter;

    Abstract : The purpose of this project was to develop an automatic irrigation system for plants. It is beneficial to have plants indoors. In addition to their air-purifying qualities, they have been proven to increase the productivity of employees at workplaces, as well as decrease the amount of sick leave. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrus-1D as a tool to understand contamination of an aquifer: A case study in the Central Valley of Cochabamba

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk geologi

    Author : Theo Nyberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In water resource management, it is of importance to be able to predict how different activities might contaminate aquifers. For this kind of application, numerical modelling of water and solute transport can be a useful tool. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impact of Stormwater reuse (Rainwater Harvesting) in areas with combined sewer network

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Roaa Hamid; [2019]
    Keywords : Rainwater harvesting; rooftop runoff; Combined Sewer Runoff- CSO; Toilet Flushing; Garden Irrigation;

    Abstract : Due to the combined effect of intense rainfall events together with the expected impact of climate change, this will put pressure on the existing and future infrastructure for storm water management. One of the challenges related to this is the combined sewer system which is still operating in large areas of many cities worldwide. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hydropower forecast in Ethiopia using the HBV model - A case study in Omo-Gibe river basin

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära
