    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Louise Larsson; [2018]
    Keywords : Slope stability; shear strength; uncertainties; risk management; Släntstabilitet; Skjuvhållfasthet; riskhantering; osäkerheter;

    Abstract : Site characterization and the subsequent determination of soil strengthparameters constitute a significant part of slope stability assessment.Geotechnical engineering is always governed by great uncertainties sincethe soil properties are challenging to estimate for a large soil volume.

  2. 2. Modeling of pore pressure in a railway embankment

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

    Author : Marcus Vestman; [2018]
    Keywords : PLAXIS; Pore pressure; Railway;

    Abstract : LKAB and Trafikverket want to increase the maximum allowed axial load from 30 tons to 32,5 tons for the northern part of Malmbanan. There are ongoing investigations of the condition of the railway with the current axial load of 30 tons. The investigations do not include one of Trafikverket's concerns about the condition of the railway. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ferroelectricity in nanocrystalline Hf0.5Zr0.5O2 thin films

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Lun Sang; [2018]
    Keywords : ferroelectricity; Hf0.5Zr0.5O2; GIXRD; XRR; Technology and Engineering; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Hafnium dioxide (HfO_2) based thin films doped with various dopants (Si, Ge, Al, Gd, Sr, Zr) have been found to exhibit ferroelectricity. These dopants were found to stabilize the III orthorhombic phase in the hafnium oxide based thin films. READ MORE

  4. 4. Slope stability assessment through field monitoring

    University essay from KTH/Jord- och bergmekanik

    Author : Yukun Wei; [2018]
    Keywords : Slope stability; inclinometer; displacement; FEM; inverse analysis.;

    Abstract : Deterministic methods have been used in geotechnical engineering for a long period, such as slope stability calculations. However, only applying deterministic methods is subjective and imperfect. READ MORE

  5. 5. Analysis of Catenary Shaped Timber Structures

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik

    Author : Kristoffer Persson; [2018]
    Keywords : Timber construction; Caternary structures; Tensile timber roof; Stress ribbon; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In the design of a building there are many parameters that effect the material efficiency. The choice of structural solution and material are two of the parameters that will be investigated further in this rapport. READ MORE
