  1. 1. Aerogel-based plasters for renovation of buildings in Sweden: Identification of possibilities, information deficiencies and challenges

    Author : Ali Naman Karim; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; compatibility; durability; plaster; mechanical; render; energy efficient retrofitting; hygrothermal; renovation; listed building; Aerogel;

    Abstract : Aerogel-based plasters are a class of high energy efficient wall finishes with declared thermal conductivities around 30-50 mW/(m∙K). Aerogel-based plasters are promising alternatives to substitute conventional insulation materials when renovating uninsulated building envelopes. READ MORE

    Abstract : Materials based on wood can offer sustainable alternatives to fossil-based plastics and composites, and show interesting mechanical properties. However, the issue of their flammability is generally unresolved. In this thesis, eco-friendly, fire retardant clay-cellulose nanofibril materials are investigated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nanofiber networks, aerogels and biocomposites based on nanofibrillated cellulose from wood

    Author : Houssine Sehaqui; Lars A. Berglund; Ton Peijs; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Nanofibrillated cellulose; nanopaper; nanofiber; biocomposites; aerogel; foam; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC) from wood is an interesting material constituent of high strength and high aspect ratio, which easily forms networks through interfibril secondary bonding including hydrogen bonds. This has been exploited in preparation of new materials, which extend the range of properties for existing cellulosic materials. READ MORE

  4. 4. Novel Thermal Insulation in Future Building and District Heating Applications - Hygrothermal Measurements and Analysis

    Author : Axel Berge; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : vacuum insulation panels; superinsulation; aerogel blankets; wooden stud walls; thermal conductivity; district heating;

    Abstract : The interest for reducing the energy consumption in society has increased during the last decades due to an increased environmental awareness. One way to decrease the energy losses in the building sector is to improve the thermal insulation of building envelopes and installations and thereby decrease the heat losses. READ MORE

  5. 5. Development of Functionalized Protein Materials

    Author : Yusheng Yuan; Niclas Solin; Olle Inganäs; Qi Zhou; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Many proteins are available as side-streams from food production, and in some cases even from industrial waste-streams. This means that proteins are available in large scale and at a relatively low price. As protein are highly complex molecules it is interesting to try to use protein as starting materials in for applications in materials science. READ MORE
