  2. 2. Determination of the Critical Moisture Level for Mould Growth on Building Materials

    Author : Pernilla Johansson; Avdelningen för Byggnadsfysik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Crawl space; Fungus; Mould resistance; Wood; Building materials; Mould; Critical moisture level; Attic; Relative humidity; Cyclic conditions; Laboratory method;

    Abstract : The susceptibility to mould growth varies between building materials. The factors that most affect mould growth, the relative humidity (RH) and temperature also vary in different parts of buildings. One way of preventing the growth of mould in buildings is therefore to choose building materials that can withstand the expected conditions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Moisture conditions in rain exposed wood joints - Experimental methods and laboratory measurements

    Author : Maria Fredriksson; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wood; moisture; durability; service life; microclimate; surface moisture; mositure content; Norway spruce; Picea abies; pressure plate; decay; growth ring width; heartwood;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the moisture conditions in rain exposed wood structures, i.e. wood exposed to high moisture levels. The focus was on the microclimate (the climate at the wood surface) and the material climate (the wood moisture content) in joints. READ MORE

  4. 4. Chloride initiated reinforcement corrosion in marine concrete

    Author : Paul Sandberg; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; w c ratio; cover thickness; chloride penetration; service life prediction; corrosion cells; chloride thresholds; field exposure tests; marine concrete; pozzolans; reinforcement corrosion; chloride binding; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Factors affecting the total chloride threshold for initiation of pitting corrosion in reinforced concrete were investigated by means of field and laboratory exposure tests. Factors affecting the chloride penetration into concrete were also investigated by means of field tests. The thesis consists of a summary (86 p.) and 11 papers attached. READ MORE

  5. 5. Integrated Life Cycle Design - Applied to concrete multi-dwelling buildings

    Author : Mats Öberg; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; livslängd; materialval; energianvändning; inomhusklimat; livscykelanalyser; livscykelkostnader; hållbar utveckling; Sustainable construction; Building construction; Service life design; Multiple Attribute Decision Analysis; Energy efficient buildings; Life Cycle Assessment; projektering; betongkonstruktioner; flerbostadshus; Byggnadsteknik; Integrated life cycle design; Life Cycle Costing;

    Abstract : The objective of this work is to explore ways of enhancing the overall lifetime quality, including cost and environmental efficiency, of Swedish concrete multi-dwelling buildings. The building and its characteristics, as well as the procedures for whole life optimisation, are addressed. READ MORE
