  1. 1. Driving rain tightness, intrusion rates and phenomenology of leakages in defects of façades: A new calculation algorithm

    Author : Lars Olsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : façade details; rain resistance; window-wall interface; EN 12865; protrusion; deficiency; catch area; water flow; obstacle; fenestration; dam; driving rain; water leakage; leakage flow; hole;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the driving rain tightness of façades with façade details as well as the water leakage flows that can be expected. Furthermore, it describes the key mechanisms for water leakage in defects in the outermost layer of external walls. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resistance of Clay Brick Masonry Façades to Wind-Driven Rain : Repointing of Eroded Mortar Joints

    Author : Mohammad Kahangi; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; clay brick masonry façade; wind-driven rain; water absorption; water penetration; damp patches;

    Abstract : Clay brick masonry façades are commonly used due to their high-performance durability. However, exposure to climate agents such as wind-driven rain (WDR), freeze-thaw cycles, and wind abrasion cause deterioration of masonry façades over time. READ MORE

  3. 3. Interception evaporation : processes and measurement techniques

    Author : Angela Lundberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Applied Geology; Tillämpad geologi;

    Abstract : In temperate regions, evaporation of water intercepted by the vegetation represents an important part of the evapotranspiration. A review of interception evaporation studies showed that knowledge about interception evaporation processes is limited and progress is hampered by technical difficulties. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inhibited electrical discharges in air

    Author : Anders Larsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; elektronik; Electronics;

    Abstract : Modem society requires a stable electricity supply, the reliability of which is partlydetermined by the dielectric strength of the outdoor high-voltage insulation systems.This thesis concentrates upon one particular discharge phenomenon that occurs whensuch a system is subjected to rain, namely the inhibited discharge.

  5. 5. Grassed swales for urban storm drainage

    Author : Magnus Bäckström; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the environmental, economic and functional aspects of using grassed swales for the conveyance and treatment of stormwater. A grassed swale is a shallow, grass-lined channel. READ MORE
