  1. 1. Fire safety design of road tunnels

    Author : Jonatan Gehandler; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Brandsäkerhet; vägtunnlar; design; Riskbedömning; Road tunnel fire safety; Fire safety engineering; design framework; risk evaluation;

    Abstract : This thesis can be described as a journey in performance-based fire safety design. Along the way questions such as what fire safety is, how it can be measured, whether we are posing the right questions, or engineer the best solutions, have arisen. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fire safety evaluation of multifunctional buildings - Special emphasis on antagonistic attacks and protection of sensitive areas

    Author : Martin Nilsson; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; multifunctional building; multipurpose building; antagonism; terrorism; design fire; fire scenario; sensitive areas; electrical appliances room; fire protection; hypoxic air venting; reduced oxygen; fire growth; building code; fire safety engineering;

    Abstract : Multifunctional buildings, often hosting societal important functions, have become increasingly more common during the last years. The combination of many functions within the same building as well as an increased exposure to antagonistic attacks create new, not previously well analyzed problems for fire safety. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design fires in underground hard rock mines

    Author : Rickard Hansen; Haukur Ingason; Håkan Frantzich; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : Design fire; underground; hard rock mine; vehicle fire; smoke spread; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : During several decades considerable research activities have been conducted with respect to fires in coal mines, but the research activities with respect to hard rock mines have been limited. As the hard rock mines are getting more complex the need for deeper understanding of fires in underground hard rock mines are getting more in demand. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stainless steel box columns in fire : analysis and design recommendations

    Author : Björn Uppfeldt; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : The use of stainless steel in buildings is small but increasing, mainly due to the low maintenance costs, favourable corrosion resistance and aesthetic appearance. It is well known that stainless steel also performs better than carbon steel at elevated temperatures. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thin-walled steel studs in fire : analysis and design recommendations

    Author : Peter Karlström; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
