1. Lifetime Performance Assessment of Thermal Systems : Studies on Building, Solar and Disctrict Heating Applications
Sammanfattning : The main questions today concerning thermal systems are their economical and environmental impacts. These entities are generally, at present, assessed on the basis of operation performances of newly installed/designed systems, during an assumed lifetime period. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : EU Sustainable Development Strategy planned to achieve improvement of life-quality by promoting sustainable production and consumption of raw materials. On November 2018, EU Commission presented a long-term strategy, aiming among others a climate-neutral economy by 2050. Cement production is contributing to 6-10% of the anthropogenic CO2 emissions. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The thesis focuses on exploring the sub-grain structure in stainless steel 316L prepared by additive manufacturing (AM). Two powder-bed based AM methods are involved: selective laser melting (SLM) and electron beam melting (EBM). LÄS MER
4. Revalorization of poorly reactive sources by mechanochemical activation : An alternative approach for sustainable cementitious binders
Sammanfattning : The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change made once again clear the urge to take immediate actions to reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Among the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Nr. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Concrete is a brittle material prone to cracking due to its low tensile strength. Crack repairs are not only expensive and time-consuming but also increase the carbon footprint. Designing a novel concrete material possessing the ability to self-repair cracks would enhance its sustainability. LÄS MER
