  3. 3. Quasi-instantaneous and Long-term Deformations of High-Performance Concrete with Some Related Properties

    University dissertation from Division of Building Materials, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Bertil Persson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Shrinkage; Relative humidity; Long-term; Hydration; High-Performance Concrete; Elastic modulus; Deformations; Creep; Concrete; Cement; Quasi-instantaneous; Strength; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    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. Causality, Magnitude and Impact Mitigation of Rework in Uganda

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : John Muhumuza Kakitahi; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rework; Client Quality Requirements; Whole Life Value Philosophy; Public building construction; Uganda;

    Abstract : Research has shown the Ugandan construction industry to be, primarily, an informal sector dominated by unskilled labour contracted mainly on minor building works such as alterations and renovations. Within such a context, the industry has also received negative publicity due to increasing quality failures on sites – commonly referred to as shoddy work. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the impact of temperature perturbations on the creep of sensitive clay

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Yanling Li; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; thermal cycles; sensitive clays; oedometer tests; temperature; natural bonding; apparent preconsolidation pressure; multi-physics modelling; geothermal; static thermal loading;

    Abstract : Temperature affects the soil response, but is not fully understood and quantified and thus often ignored. The temperature fluctuations resulting from energy foundations and construction activities, such as excavations and soil stabilization, however, may lead to changes in the hydromechanical response of the clay.
