1. Investigation of the correlation of fracture frequency and electric resistivity in impact craters in crystalline rocks
Sammanfattning : Impact craters are formed when a large meteorite or comethits the Earth. At the impact a shock wave is released causingabundant fracturing in the surrounding bedrock. This type offracturing is intense and occurs throughout a very large volume(>100 km3) of the bedrock. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Sweden is presently a low seismicity area where most earthquakes are small and pose no serious threat to constructions. For the long-term perspectives of safety assessments of geological repositories for spent nuclear fuel, however, the effects of large earthquakes have to be considered. LÄS MER
3. Characterisation and Modeling of Discontinuous Rock Mass: Geostatistical Interpretation of Seismic Response to Fracture Occurrence, Discrete Fracture Network Modeling and Stability Predictions for Underground Excavations
Sammanfattning : Geometric and mechanical characterisation of rock discontinuities is an essential constituent in deriving a reliable assessment of overall properties of crystalline rock mass. The knowledge about the occurrence, size, geometry pattern and intensity of joints/fractures is necessary to predict the performance of fractured rock as a fractured reservoir, or an underground transport and storage facility.

Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the composition and properties of cement-based materials, concrete and grout, for use as seals and for stabilizing fracture zones in underground facilities like mines and repositories for chemical and radioactive waste. It is of general character with respect to the composition and preparation of concretes and grouts but focuses on the sealing of boreholes for mineral prospection and site investigation for locating underground repositories of hazardous waste.

Sammanfattning : Several compulsory regulations and recommendations regarding ionising radiation for building products have been introduced in recent years. Furthermore, industry-affiliated aggregate and concrete companies strive to implement environmental goals that should be fulfilled regarding building materials. LÄS MER
