  1. 1. Moisture Transport in Porous Media. Modelling Based on Kirchhoff Potentials

    Author : Jesper Arfvidsson; Avdelningen för Byggnadsfysik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; moisture distribtion; wood drying; wood; diffusion coefficient; numerical modelling; moisture flow; Moisture; transient measurements; periodic boundary condition; penetration depth; sorption coefficient; non-linear moisture flow; calculation model; anisitropy; Kirchhoff potentials; evaluation; moisture transport; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis is focused on the development of the new concept to describe isothermal moisture transport using Kirchhoff potentials. The first four papers deal with moisture transport in porous media using Kirchhoff potentials. The last three papers deal with wood. READ MORE

  2. 2. On Sahelian-Sudan rainfall and its moisture sources

    Author : Abubakr A. M. Salih; Qiong Zhang; Michael Tjernström; Alessandra Giannini; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sudan; Sahel; rainfall; land use; deforestation; moisture sources; moisture transport; Lagrangian; moisture tagging; regional model; climate modeling; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Abstract : The African Sahel is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate variability at different time scales. It is an arid to semi-arid region with limited water resources. The summer rainfall is one of these sources, but it exhibits pronounced interannual variability. This thesis presents several aspects of Sahelian Sudan rainfall. READ MORE

  3. 3. Moisture Conditions in High Performance Concrete. Mathematical Modelling and Measurements

    Author : Kristina Norling Mjörnell; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : concrete; cement; relative humidity; desorption isotherm; moisture condition; moisture transport; high performance concrete; degree of reaction;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis has been focused on developing a model to calculate the moisture conditions in concrete of low water/binder ratio (W/B) which is normally used in high performance concrete. To do this, the moisture conditions in high performance concrete have been studied, from a very early age. READ MORE

  4. 4. Moisture Transport and Moisture-Induced Distortions in Timber - an Experimental and Numerical Study

    Author : John Eriksson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : heat transfer; gluing; twist; drying; wood; timber board; laminated product; FEM; distortion; moisture; mass transfer;

    Abstract : Timber products subjected to climatic variations commonly display moisture-induced distortions that can lead to serious problems for end-users. The aim of the thesis, which consists of an extended summary and six appended papers, was to investigate the potential of using the gluing technique suggested here for dealing with problems of moisture-induced distortions and developing the heat and mass transfer models which such distortion analyses require.

  5. 5. Moisture content profiles and surface phenomena during drying of wood

    Author : Anders Rosenkilde; KTH; []
    Keywords : computer tomography; diffusion; magnetic resonance; moisture measurement; moisture profiles; surface emission; wood drying;

    Abstract : Timber drying is one of the most important processes whenmanufacturing sawn timber products. The drying processinfluences deformations, surface checking, discoloration andhence, the product quality and the manufacturing costs. READ MORE
