  1. 1. Energy Use and Environmental Impact of New Residential Buildings

    University dissertation from Byggnadsfysik LTH, Lunds Tekniska Högskola

    Author : Karin Adalberth; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; life cycle; environmental impact; energy demand; energy use; multi-family building; single-unit dwelling; building; residential building; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Avhandlingens syfte är att undersöka energianvändningen och miljöpåverkan från bostäder. Sju autentiska byggnader byggda under 1990-talet i Sverige har studerats. READ MORE

  2. 2. Critical Moisture Conditions for Mould Growth on Building Materials

    University dissertation from Byggnadsfysik LTH, Lunds Tekniska Högskola

    Author : Pernilla Johansson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mould; critical moisture level; building material; relative humidity; mould resistance; crawl space; attic;

    Abstract : Materials that are stored or used in damp climates may be subject to mould growth. However, all materials are not equally susceptible to mould growth. For each specific material, there is a critical moisture level. If this is exceeded, there is a risk that mould fungi will develop on the material. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mould on building materials - A calorimetric study of fungal activity as a function of environmental factors

    University dissertation from Division of Building Materials, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Yujing Li; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; materiallära; byggnadsteknik; building construction; fungal activity; temperature; relative humidity; building; image analysis; indoor environment; wood; materialteknik; material technology; mould; calorimetry; isothermal calorimeter;

    Abstract : Mould problems in buildings have become a growing concern during the past decades. The growth of mould fungi indoors deteriorates air quality, influences human health and causes economical losses. Preventing mould growth from occurring is a more cost effective option than cleaning and renovation of buildings with mould problems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Strength of Stabilised Soil - A Laboratory Study on Clays and Organic Soils Stabilised with different Types of Binder

    University dissertation from Avd. för Byggnadsmekanik / Department of Construction Sciences, LTH

    Author : Helen Åhnberg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materiallära; Material technology; Hållfasthet; Geoteknik; Stabiliserad jord; materialteknik;

    Abstract : Stabilisation of soft soils by deep mixing with binders is the most frequently used method of ground improvement in Sweden today, and is increasingly being used internationally. The most common binders employed are cement and lime, but a variety of other binders may also be used for stabilisation of soils. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling the effects of knots in Structural Timber

    University dissertation from Structural Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Christina Foley; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material technology; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; three-dimensional fiber paradigm; fiber deviation; knots; annual growth layer; material matrix; knot bump; structural timber; load carrying capacity; Materiallära; critical knot; knot distance ratio; local principal material directions; stiffness; materialteknik;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the pursued research is to increase knowledge of the effects of knots in structural timber so that characteristics of weaker timber may be determined and applied to improve current grading techniques. In the process, a three-dimensional fiber paradigm was established, which describes variations of local principle material axes in timber containing knots. READ MORE
