  1. 1. Indoor thermal environment in Supermarkets : A study of measured and perceived comfort parameters

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers Reproservice

    Author : Ulla Lindberg; Högskolan i Borås.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal environment; supermarket; interdisciplinary; display cabinets; refrigeration systems; thermal comfort;

    Abstract : In the supermarket environment three different groups must be considered: food (food quality), personnel (working conditions) and customers. Customers are of particular interest since they make up the commercial basis for the supermarket. Currently, however, there are no recommendations on the indoor environment for this category.

  4. 4. Preparation and Evaluation of New Nanoporous Silica Materials for Molecular Filtration and for Core Materials in Vacuum Insulation Panels

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ebenezer Twumasi Afriyie; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Adsorbents; activated carbon; MgCa-silica; carbon-silica composite; characterization; porous parameters; molecular filtration; thermal conductivity; thermal insulation;

    Abstract : Nanoporous materials for gas purification and thermal insulation have been studied and developed for application in many areas. It is known that a single adsorbent may not adequately control multiple contaminants. Further the utilization of nanoporous material as thermal insulator in building applications is limited due to high cost. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cracking in Reinforced Concrete Structures Due to Imposed Deformations

    University dissertation from Structural Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Agnes Nagy; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1997]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; minimum reinforcement; cracking; softening; shrinkage; cooling; imposed deformations; conversion formula; static E-modulus; damping coefficient; resonance frequency; dynamic E-modulus; constitutive model; thermal stress; hydration process; reinforced concrete structure; early age; crack control; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with modeling of the cracking process in reinforced concrete due to imposed deformations. Cracking is investigated both at early ages, during hydration, and at mature age when the final properties of the concrete are reached. READ MORE
