Sammanfattning : Excavation and moving of soil are common civil work tasks connected to the construction of buildings, roads and railways. In construction projects large amounts of soil have to be handled with different machines, tools and working methods. Soils are more or less difficult to excavate depending on their properties.

Sammanfattning : The excavation of the Sanctuary of Poseidon at Kalaureia in 1894 marks the beginning of Swedish archaeological fieldwork in Greece. During a couple of hot summer months, two philologists from Uppsala University, Sam Wide (1861-1918) and Lennart Kjellberg (1857-1936), worked in the sanctuary together with the architect Sven Kristenson (1858-1937), the Greek foreman Pankalos and around twenty local workmen.

Sammanfattning : Improved infrastructure in urban areas often necessitates underground construction, where the unloading behaviour of the soil is of importance for predicting the amount of heave and how long it will take for the soil to swell. It is of particular interest to study the need for the installation of tension piles, as well as whether the tunnel will be subjected to settlement or heave in the long term. LÄS MER
4. Hydrogeological Methods in Geotechnical Engineering: Applied to settlements caused by underground construction
Sammanfattning : Improvement in the infrastructure in urban areas generally involves underground construction with tunneling and deep excavations. One important consideration when constructing in cities founded on soft soil is settlement resulting from groundwater drawdown. The potential cost of excessive settlement in these projects is immense. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This doctoral thesis examines the encounter between the dead and the living within 19th and 20th century landscape cemeteries. It shows how the relationship unfolds through the materiality and practices occurring within them. LÄS MER
