    Abstract : This report outlines an experimental and numerical study on quasi-instantaneous and long-term deformations of High-Performance Concrete, HPC, with some related properties. For this purpose about two hundred small cylinders and about one thousand cubes of eight types of HPC were cast. The age at loading varied between 18h and 28 days. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reuse of construction materials Environmental performance and assessment methodology

    University dissertation from Institutionen för konstruktions- och produktionsteknik

    Author : Liselott Roth; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environment; societal industrial ecology SIE ; reuse of construction materials; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Reuse is a measure for resource-saving materials and energy use, which is stressed in the concept of kretsloppsanpassning, or societal industrial ecology (SIE), as it will be termed in this thesis. Reuse is here used as a general term for any kind of reuse and divided into recirculation, upgrading and cascading, according to the degradation of the inner material structure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Causality, Magnitude and Impact Mitigation of Rework in Uganda

    University dissertation from Lund University
