  1. 1. Biofoams and Biocomposites based on Wheat Gluten Proteins

    Författare :Qiong Wu; Mikael Hedenqvist; Richard Olsson; Hélène Angellier-Coussy; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wheat gluten; biofoam; biocomposite; freeze-drying; flame-retardant; silica; antimicrobial; bimodal; conductive biofoam; flax fiber; crack-resistance; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Novel uses of wheat gluten (WG) proteins, obtained e.g. as a coproduct from bio-ethanol production, are presented in this thesis. A flame-retardant foam was prepared via in-situ polymerization of hydrolyzed tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) in a denatured WG matrix (Paper I). LÄS MER

  2. 2. Implementation and evaluation of an HMA fracture mechanics based design module

    Författare :David Gullberg; Björn Birgisson; Robert Lundström; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : A thickness design module for flexible pavements, based on the HMA fracture mechanics framework, has been developed in order to design against premature failure caused by cracking. The HMA fracture mechanics based design module has been evaluated by designing typical Swedish pavements under typical Swedish climate and loading conditions and comparing the results with a reference design framework.

  3. 3. Properties of Modern Rendering Systems based on Mineral Binders

    Författare :Carl-Magnus Capener; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; polymers; mortar; rendering; properties; microstructure; admixtures; chemistry;

    Sammanfattning : Composite mineral–organic materials and in particular cement-organic materials are increasingly used in today’s construction applications and civil engineering projects. Polymer-modified render is a material that possesses several properties superior to conventional renders, such as better workability, crack resistance, adhesion to substrate and flexural strength.

  4. 4. Mechanical and thermal stability of hard nitride coatings

    Författare :Yu-Hsiang Chen; Magnus Odén; Lina Rogström; Tomasz Liskiewicz; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Hard coating’s thermal stability is essential due to the high temperature environment of high-speed cutting applications, while the phase and microstructure evolution induced by exposing the coating to high temperature affects the mechanical properties. In this thesis, the mechanical stability of arc-evaporated, hard, transition metal nitride coatings annealed at high temperature is analyzed and related to the phase and microstructure evolution.

  5. 5. Thermally Conductive High-Density Polyethylene Composites for Ground Heat Exchangers

    Författare :Adib Kalantar Mehrjerdi; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; High-density polyethylene; talc; thermal conductivity; thermal diffusivity; thermal stability; melt rheology; oxidation induction time; α relaxation; strain hardening;

    Sammanfattning : Today, the energy used for the heating and cooling of offices, shopping centres, schools, residential areas, andother buildings is as large as 50% of the total energy consumption in the world. The climate change, globalwarming, and environmental issues have forced high requirements for energy efficiency and clean energyproduction in buildings. LÄS MER
