  1. 1. Form pressure generated by self-compacting concrete : influence of thixotropy and structural behaviour at rest

    Author : Peter Billberg; Johan Silfwerbrand; Kamal Khayat; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; self-compacting concrete; thixotropy; structural build-up; form pressure; rheometer; viscometer; instrumented pressure tube; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Self-compacting concrete (SCC) offers rational and fast casting process since it merely has to be poured, or pumped, into the formwork without any compaction work needed. But this can be at the cost of high form pressure. However, reported results show that SCC can act thixotropically, i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel Microsystem Techniques for Liquid Manipulation and Pressure Sensing

    Author : Jessica Melin; Göran Stemme; Sabeth Verpoorte; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Microbiology; microsystem technology; pressure sensing; liquid manipulation; liquid control; micromixing; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Mikrobiologi;

    Abstract : Scaling down operations and functions into the fascinating micro world not only improve performance, lower costs, and enable easier integration, but also opens the door to new functionalities. This truly multidisciplinary thesis presents novel solutions to current and relevant challenges in the areas of 1) on-chip liquid manipulation which has applications in micro total analysis systems, medical diagnostics, and drug discovery and 2) pressure sensing which has an established market in the automotive and industrial processes industry.

  3. 3. Effects of deep excavations in soft clay on the immediate sourroundings-Analysis of the possibility to predict deformations and reactions against the retaining system

    Author : Anders Kullingsjö; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MIT-S1; Sheet pile wall; Soil-structure interaction; Strain; Stress; Ground surface settlement; Finite element method; Case history; Shear test; Shear strength; Pore pressure; Analysis; Constitutive models; Plane strain; Elastoplasticity; Laboratory tests; Factor of safety; Stiffness; e-ADP; Earth pressure; Anisotropy; Soft Clay; Deep excavation; Retaining wall; Shear stress; Deformation;

    Abstract : When excavating in an urban environment, the evaluation of the magnitude and distribution of ground movements is an important part of the design process, since excessive movements can damage adjacent buildings and utilities. In order to minimize movement of the surrounding soil, a retaining wall support system is used for deep excavations to provide lateral support. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structure and Phase Stability of CaC2 Polymorphs, Li2C2 and Lithium Intercalated Graphite : A Revisit with High Pressure Experiments and Metal Hydride–Graphite Reactions

    Author : Sumit Konar; Ulrich Häussermann; Gunnar Svensson; Arnold Guloy; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; acetylide carbides; high pressure; Raman spectroscopy; powder X-ray diffraction; Rietveld refinement; materialkemi; Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : Alkali (A) and alkaline earth (AE) metals can form carbides and intercalated graphites with carbon. The carbides mostly represent acetylides which are salt-like compounds composed of C22− dumbbell anions and metal cations. Both the acetylide carbides and intercalated graphites are technologically important. READ MORE
