  1. 1. Phenolic Antioxidants in Wood Smoke

    Author : Jennica Kjällstrand; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : smoke; benzene; methoxyphenols; antioxidants; wood; lignin; combustion; biomass;

    Abstract : Smoke from residential wood burning constitutes a complex mixture of organic compounds with varying environmental and health effects. This thesis focuses on antioxidants and aromatic hydrocarbons emitted from small-scale burning. READ MORE

  2. 2. Foam Core Materials for High Performance Sandwich Constructions: Preparation, Testing and Properties

    Author : Mikael Danielsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : IPN; core material; low temperature; polyurea; polyethersulfone; gradient structure; foam; PVC; sandwich; waste; fire; smoke; toxicity; mechanical properties; Inter Penetrating Polymer Network; dynamic properties; high temperature;

    Abstract : The basic task for foams used as core materials in sandwich constructions is to separate the skin layers in order to enhance stiffness with little contribution to the total weight. However, modern design in sandwich technology require that core materials contribute to the perfor-mance with specific mechanical and physical properties. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effects of forest fire smoke and volcanism on the stratospheric aerosol

    Author : Oscar Sandvik; Kärnfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fjärranalys; Stratosfärsaerosol; Skogsbrandsrök; Vulkanism; CALIOP; FLEXPART; CALIPSO; AIRS; IAGOS-CARIBIC; Remote Sensing; Stratospheric aerosol; Forest fire smoke; Volcanism; CALIOP; FLEXPART; CALIPSO; AIRS; IAGOS-CARIBIC;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the stratospheric aerosol through both in-situ measurements and remote sensing. The background stratospheric aerosol is complex and is perturbed by injections of forest fire smoke particles and by particles formed from volcanic SO2. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evaluation and Mitigation of Industrial Fire Hazards

    Author : Petra Andersson; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknik; Technological sciences; Effect of fires; Accidental release; Water mist; Halon replacement; Industrial Fire Hazards; Human burns; Smoke detektion;

    Abstract : A tool suitable for conducting industrial fire and explosion hazard analysis is presented, together with an identification of weak links in the hazard evaluation chain. For some of the weak links additional research has been carried out. READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
