  1. 1. Ground freeze-thaw, snow and roads in northern Sweden

    Author : Maria Sarady; Eva Sahlin; Magnus Bohlin; Hanna Ridefelt; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Ground freeze-thaw; snow depth; roads; northern Sweden; geography; Geography; Geografi;

    Abstract : In this thesis freeze-thaw along roads in northern Sweden is examined. The examinations are put in a context of changing climate and its amplification towards the Arctic region on earth. The research focuses on the impact of a warmer climate on ground freeze-thaw and in exten- sion road maintenance in the region. READ MORE

  2. 2. Water and Heat Transport in Road Structures : Development of Mechanistic Models

    Author : Klas Hansson; Lars-Christer Lundin; Kurt Roth; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hydrology; Water flow; Heat flow; Unsaturated flow; Freeze-thaw; Numerical models; Uncertainty analysis; Sensitivity analysis; Roads; Overland flow; Flow patterns; TDR; Water content reflectometer; Calibration; Fractures; Hydrologi; Hydrology; Hydrologi;

    Abstract : The coupled transport of water and heat, involving freezing and thawing, in the road structure and its immediate environment is important to consider for optimal design and maintenance of roads and when assessing solute transport, of e.g. de-icing salt, from roads. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mechanisms of salt frost scaling on portland cement-bound materials: studies and hypothesis

    Author : Sture Lindmark; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Deterioration; Durability; Freeze-Thaw; Frost; Salt; Mechanism; Chloride; Diffusion; Adsorption; Building construction; Cement; Concrete; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : A hypothesis regarding the mechanism causing salt frost scaling on Portland cement-bound materials is described. It is assumed that deterioration is due to osmotic micro ice body growth, as has been previously proposed for frost deterioration of moisture-isolated specimens of cement-bound materials. READ MORE

  4. 4. Chloride Transport in Concrete under the Frost Action – An Experimental Study

    Author : Bo Li; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; temperature; chloride; concrete; freeze-thaw cycles; water uptake; chloride profile; frost action; transport;

    Abstract : Frost-induced ingress of chloride in concrete is one of the typical transport phenomena of aggressive substances when structures expose to severe environments such as marine tidal zone and de-icing highway in winter seasons. It is well known that Chloride ingress in concrete causes the reinforcement corrosion. READ MORE

    Abstract : Dredging activities at ports and harbors are inevitable for safe navigation of ships and vessels. The outcomes of dredging are huge volumes of dredged materials, which can range from very fine and contaminated sediments to sands and gravels. The coarse sands and gravels can be directly used in civil engineering applications. READ MORE
