    Author : Simon Lindroth [formerly Tyrberg]; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    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; Wave power; Measurement systems; Marine technology; Energy conversion; Renewable energy; Energy absorption; Wave resource; Oceanic engineering; Linear generators; Point absorbers; Sea trials; Camera systems; Accelerometers; Offshore experiments; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : On March 13th, 2006, the Division of Electricity at Uppsala University deployed its first wave energy converter, L1, in the ocean southwest of Lysekil. L1 consisted of a buoy at the surface, connected through a line to a linear generator on the seabed. READ MORE

  2. 2. The effect of resource sustainability interventions on social sustainable development in the built environment

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Mikael Mangold; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Social Sustainability; Housing; Domestic Water;

    Abstract : There are several sustainable development targets for the Swedish housing market. The sector as a whole is expected to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gases. Housing prices should increase and not inflate. Meanwhile, the development of the built environment should contribute to well being and decrease segregation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Environmental Systems Analysis of Wastewater Management

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Erik Kärrman; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; Civil engineering and architecture; Miljöteknik; Environmental engineering;

    Abstract : The history of wastewater management tells us that efforts have been made at solving only one problem at the time; sanitation during the first half of the 20th Century followed by eutrophication of lakes and sea and, for the past ten years, recycling of nutrients. After the "Brundtland Report", 1987, a reversal of the debate occurred where water management was discussed in a more holistic manner than before. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hydro-Kinetic Energy Conversion : Resource and Technology

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mårten Grabbe; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
