  1. 1. Chloride transport and chloride threshold values : studies on concretes and mortars with Portland cement and limestone blended cement

    Author : Dimitrios Boubitsas; RISE; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cement; Mortar; Concrete; Corrosion; Reinforcement; Chloride ions;

    Abstract : Reinforced concrete is one of the most widely used building materials and if it is properly designed and produced, it is an extremely durable material with a service life up to 100 years. However, under certain environmental conditions the service life of reinforced concrete structures is more limited. READ MORE

  2. 2. Towards a Framework for Production Strategy in Construction

    Author : Henric Jonsson; Martin Rudberg; Jonathan Gosling; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : The problem with low productivity increase in the construction industry is highlighted in many studies and in Sweden the need to improve productivity and client satisfaction in the construction industry has promoted a number of government investigations. One suggested way of improving productivity and client satisfaction is to move value adding activities offsite, to a more industrial environment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Managing Uncertainty in Environmental and Cost Life Cycle Studies of Building Design

    Author : Peter Ylmén; Tomas Ekvall; Jesper Arfvidsson; Johanna Berlin; Peter Ylmen; Kristina Mjörnell; Avdelningen för Byggnadsfysik; []

    Abstract : The building and construction sector accounted for 39% of energy and process-related carbon dioxide emissions in 2018 and global emissions from buildings increased by 2% for the second consecutive year. It is therefore important to find building design solutions that minimise the climate impact of buildings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Service life estimations in the design of a PCM based night cooling system

    Author : Göran Hed; Christer Sjöström; Andrew James Miller; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Building manufacturing engineering; Byggproduktionsteknik; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The use of Phase Change Material, PCM, to change the thermal inertia of lightweight buildings is investigated in the CRAFT project C-TIDE. It is a joint project with Italian and Swedish partners, representing both industry and research. PCMs are materials where the phase change enthalpy can be used for thermal storage. READ MORE

  5. 5. Collaborative Product Development : a Purchasing Strategy for Small Industrialized House-building Companies

    Author : Jarkko Erikshammar; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Civil engineering and architecture - Building manufacturing engineering; Collaborative Product Development; Industrialized House-building; SME; Purchasing; Supply chain; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur - Byggproduktionsteknik; Träbyggnad; Timber Structures;

    Abstract : Purchasing, is an important part of the production process in industrialized house-building. Uncoordinated purchasing is one of the causes for low productivity increase within the sector. Traditional purchasing strategies, used by large construction companies, may not be applicable to small and medium-sized companies. READ MORE
