  1. 1. The Analysis of Results of Stochastic Evacuation Models

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Erik Smedberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Evacuation; Fire safety; Behavioural uncertainty; Evacuation modelling; Evacuation simulation; Pathfinder; Functional analysis; Egress.; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : All humans are unique, we have different characteristics and we make different decision. This is a challenge when it comes to modelling human behaviour. The models we design are based on mathematics where there is no room for inconsistencies such that are present in human behaviour. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optical methods for 3D-reconstruction of railway bridges : Infrared scanning, Close range photogrammetry and Terrestrial laser scanning

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand; Luleå tekniska universitet/Byggkonstruktion och brand

    Author : David Crabtree Gärdin; Alexander Jimenez; [2018]
    Keywords : bridge inspection; non-destructive; safety; efficient; 3D-scanning; traffic disturbance; BIM; assessment; as-built; point cloud;

    Abstract : The forecast of the next upcoming years estimates a growth of demand in transport. As the railway sector in Europe has developed over many years, the infrastructure presents performance issues because of, among other factors, asset maintenance activities being difficult and time consuming.

  3. 3. Moisture risks with CLT-panels subjected to outdoor climate during construction : focus on mould and wetting processes

    University essay from KTH/Byggteknik och design; KTH/Byggteknik och design

    Author : Johan Öberg; Erik Wiege; [2018]
    Keywords : moisture; CLT; massive wood; mould; WUFI; drying; construction; weather protection. best practice; fukt; KL-trä; massivt trä; mögel; WUFI; torkning; konstruktion; väderskydd; best practice;

    Abstract : When going through relevant research, moisture safety guidelines and talking to builders, moisture experts and architects it is clear - and not surprising - that water and wood make no easy combination. The experiences from building with cross laminated timber (CLT) differ from building sites and there are good and bad examples building without weather protection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Construction Automation : Assessment of State of the Art and Future Possibilities

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för innovation, design och teknik

    Author : Patrik Folkesson; Robert Lönnroos; [2018]
    Keywords : Construction Automation; Building Information Modelling BIM ; Robotics;

    Abstract : The world of automation has grown rapidly for the last four decades and it is driven by higher demands from users, technology development and maturity of technologies of industrial processes. Companies all over the world have automated their manufacturing processes which have led to billions of dollars in productivity and quality improvements. READ MORE

  5. 5. Study of a new method to measure the stresses in rock by image technology : Use of sawn slots and DIgital Image Correlation

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Geoteknologi

    Author : Patrik Emanuelsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Digital Image Correlation; Numerical modelling; Stress measurement; Sawn slots;

    Abstract : In rock constructions and mining it is important to know the current stress situation in the rock due to safety and construction reasons. Two of the widely used stress measurement methods are overcoring and hydraulic fracturing. Both methods are expensive, need new boreholes, and are complex and time consuming. READ MORE
