  1. 1. Road disasters? Modeling and assessment of Swedish roads within crucial climate conditions

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Alireza Nickman; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road; Flood; Moisture; Temperature; Groundwater; GIS; Uncertainity; Sweden; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : An efficient maintenance of roads to ensure high accessibility and durability of the transport capacity requires an understanding of how the hydrological response depends on both the road and the landscape characteristics. New methods and data were used to identify and explain interaction between roads and surrounding environment and their influence on hydrologic responses both in watershed scale and road-section scale.

  2. 2. Distributed thermal response tests New insights on U-pipe and Coaxial heat exchangers in groundwater-filled boreholes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : José Acuña; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Borehole heat exchangers; Distributed Thermal Response Test; Ground Source Heat Pumps; Coaxial; U-pipe; Multi-pipe; Pipe-in-pipe; Multi-chamber; Groundwater; Thermosyphon; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : U-pipe Borehole Heat Exchangers (BHE) are widely used today in ground source heating and cooling systems in spite of their less than optimal performance. This thesis provides a better understanding on the function of U-pipe BHEs and Investigates alternative methods to reduce the temperature difference between the circulating fluid and the borehole wall, including one thermosyphon and three different types of coaxial BHEs.

  3. 3. Water in roads: Flow paths and pollutant spread

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Hedi Rasul; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; De-icing salt; Road; Tracer test; ERT; Water content; Road pollutants; Flow pathways; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : For better road construction and maintenance while minimising damage to the environment and groundwater, it is essential to monitor and model hydrological impacts on roads and consider pollution of groundwater. Water content in unbound material in road layers changes continuously and water flow usually occurs along pathways that are the main corridors for pollutant spread to groundwater. READ MORE

  4. 4. Numerical modeling of fluid flow and solute transport in rock fractures

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Liangchao Zou; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rough-walled rock fractures; Nonlinear flow; Solute transport; Navier-Stokes equations; Matrix diffusion; Uncertainty.; Mark- och vattenteknik; Land and Water Resources Engineering;

    Abstract : This study focuses on numerical modeling of fluid flow and solute transport in rough-walled rock fractures and fracture-matrix systems, with the main aim to investigate the impacts of fracture surface roughness on flow and transport processes in rock fractures. Both 2D and 3D fracture models were built from laser-scanned surface tomography of a real granite rock sample, to consider realistic features of surface tomography and potential asperity contacts.
