  1. 1. Particulate Debris Spreading and Coolability

    Author : Simone Basso; Pavel Kudinov; Florian Fichot; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Self-leveling; debris bed; spreading; coolability; severe accident; probabilistic framework; Monte Carlo; uncertainty; sensitivity; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : In Nordic design of boiling water reactors, a deep water pool under the reactor vessel is employed for the core melt fragmentation and the long term cooling of decay heated corium debris in case of a severe accident. To assess the effectiveness of such accident management strategy the Risk-Oriented Accident Analysis Methodology has been proposed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Accident Risk and Environmental Assessment : Development of an Assessment Guideline with Examination in Northern Scandinavia

    Author : Markus Lundkvist; Lennart Strömquist; Christer Jonasson; Rolf Nyberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geography; accident; risk; hazard; environmental assessment; geomorphology; railway; road; avalanche; debris flow; rock fall; slush flow; torrent; moose; reindeer; environmental impact assessment; proposal alternatives; Kiruna; Narvik; Geografi; Other earth sciences; Övrig geovetenskap;

    Abstract : In environmental impact assessment (EIA), accident risk should be considered as one impact. However, few studies have compared assessed risk levels with documented accidents. There is thus a need for assessing accuracy of risk assessment methodologies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Deglaciation pattern and dynamics in the Bolmen area, southwestern Sweden

    Author : Gunnar Andersson; Kvartärgeologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geology; backwasting; Debris flow; Oscillation; Gothenburg moraine; cover moraine; Late Weichselian; hummocky moraine; physical geography; Geologi; fysisk geografi;

    Abstract : The Late Weichselian deglaciation of an area in southwestern Sweden was reconstructed by geomorphological, sedimentological and lithostratigraphical methods. The morainic deposits were mapped and classified into three landsystems: Streamlined terrain, hummocky moraine and cover moraine. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cold-climate landforms on Mars and Earth-analogues in Svalbard

    Author : Andreas Johnsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Mars; Svalbard; Spitsbergen; periglacial; ice; permafrost; Earth-analogues; terrestrial analogues; geomorphology; landforms; solifluction; debris flow; gully; craters; cold-climate;

    Abstract : Periglacial landforms on Earth reflect cold-climate conditions and are intimately related to processes due to the presence of ground ice and perennially frozen ground, permafrost. The overall objective of this thesis is to investigate the potential of Svalbard as an analogue to Mars cold-climate landforms, and explore past and present processes and surface conditions on Mars by inference from morphological counterparts in Svalbard.

  5. 5. Towards understanding breakage and flow in sublevel caving (SLC) : Development of new measurement techniques and results from full-scale tests

    Author : Matthias Wimmer; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Blast function, fragmentation and gravity flow are core elements for sublevel caving (SLC). For the ore recovery to be as high and the waste rock dilution as low as possible all three elements have to work as planned. READ MORE
