  1. 1. Investigation of the correlation of fracture frequency and electric resistivity in impact craters in crystalline rocks

    Författare :Ann Bäckström; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Electric resistivity; Fracture frequency; Impact generated fractures; Electro-magnetic techniques; VLF-R method; MT method; Window-mapping technique; Three-dimensional fracture calculations; heat-exchange structure; geothermal energy;

    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

  2. 2. Simulating Earthquake Rupture and Near-Fault Fracture Response

    Författare :Billy Fälth; Björn Lund; Roland Roberts; Harald Hökmark; Eric Dunham; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geofysik med inriktning mot seismologi; Geophysics with specialization in Seismology;

    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. 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

    Författare :Peter Starzec; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :keyblock predictions; induced seismicity; stochastic fracture network; geostatistics;

    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.

  4. 4. Cement-Poor Concrete and Grout for Use in Underground Constructions

    Författare :Mohammed Hatem; Leena Korkiala-Tanttu; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    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.

  5. 5. Reducing Radon Gas Emissions in Concrete

    Författare :Magnus Döse; Johan Silfwerbrand; Franz Josef Maringer; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Radon gas; emissions; health; concrete; building materials; ionizing radiation; Betongbyggnad; Concrete Structures;

    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
