  1. 1. Temperature distribution in air tight cavities of steel framed modular buildings when exposed to fire

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

    Author : Elin Bergroth; Greta Torstensson; [2019]
    Keywords : Cavities; fire furnace; fire test; modular building; steel; TASEF; Brandugn; brandtest; hålrum; modulbyggnader; stål; TASEF;

    Abstract : A common way to construct large buildings is by assemble prefabricated modules around a load bearing steel construction. However, if a fire occurs these buildings can be subject to a rapid fire spread due to its cellular nature. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards a prototype of a modular biogas system

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

    Author : Arvid Emilsson; Andreas Buhrgard; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : As of today, large unused potential for biogas production exist within the Swedish agriculturesector. The biogas production within this sector is, however, associated with several problems such as poor energy efficiency and non-profitable systems. This is to some degree due to lack of standardized technical solutions. READ MORE

    Keywords : Shipping Container; Residential purpose; South Afrika; Sweden; Germany; Passive Architecture;

    Abstract : Shipping containers that can no longer be used in cargo transportation are accumulating in large numbers in ports all over the world. At the same time, the usage of fully modular and prefabricated components in the construction sector is on a constant rise in recent years. READ MORE

  5. 5. Simple volumes : - Spatial complexity

    University essay from KTH/Arkitektur

    Author : Erik Lundqvist; [2019]
    Keywords : Modules; Volumetric elements; modular construction;

    Abstract : In this thesis project, I have explored ways to reach spatial complexity through the use of a simple system of volumetric building elements. The ambition has been to draw an apartment building with emphasis on a variety in the apartment layouts as well as to let the functions of circulation, which I define as both shared and private functions such as stairs, elevators and passages, become an integrated part of the architectural expression.
