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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Author : Maria Sarady; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; 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. Chloride Transport in Concrete under the Frost Action – An Experimental Study

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen

    Author : Bo Li; [2009]
    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

  3. 3. Stabilization-solidification of high water content dredged sediment Strength, compressibility and durability evaluations

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    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

  5. 5. Towards frost damage prediction in asphaltic pavements

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Lisa Lövqvist; KTH.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; frost damage; winter damage; asphalt; pavements; micromechanical model; microstructure; freeze-thaw cycles; finite element model; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Roads are subjected to mechanical loads from the traffic as well as deteriorating mechanisms originating from the surrounding environment and climate. The damage arising is particularly severe during the winter season, when for example raveling, pot holes and cracks can emerge on the surfaces of asphaltic roads. READ MORE
