  1. 1. Soil Management Strategies to Establish Vegetation and Groundwater Recharge when Restoring Gravel Pits

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Kungliga Tekniska högskolan

    Författare :Karin Palmqvist Larsson; KTH.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :groundwater protection; soil physical properties; CoupModel; unsaturated conductivity; water retention; transpiration; soil evaporation;

    Sammanfattning : The removal of vegetation and overburden changes the naturalwater purifying processes and thus decreases the groundwaterprotection in gravel pit areas. The sand and gravel depositsusedfor aggregate extraction in Sweden are also often valuablefor extraction of groundwater as a drinking water resource. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Moisture Influence on Structural Behaviour of Pavements Field and Laboratory Investigations

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Författare :Farhad Salour; KTH.; [2015]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Falling Weight Deflectometer FWD ; backcalculation; unbound material; subgrade; seasonal variation; moisture content; spring-thaw; drainage; pavement stiffness; field test; pavement instrumentation; resilient modulus; permanent deformation; repeated load triaxial test; unsaturated soil; matric suction.; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : The structural behaviour of pavements in cold regions can considerably be affected by seasonal variation in environmental factors such as temperature and moisture content. Along with the destructive effect of heavy traffic loads, climatic and environmental factors can considerably contribute to pavement deterioration. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Unsaturated Solute Transport in a Semiarid Catchment - Nonlinear Analyses and Modelling

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Författare :Pernilla Öhrström; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2005]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geografi; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; unsaturated zone; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; solute transport; scaling; soils; semiarid regions; heterogeneity; preferential flow; fractals;

    Sammanfattning : Unsaturated solute transport is highly variable and therefore difficult to predict. In semi-arid areas, where water resources are limited, the presence of macropores is of great importance for crop production. The bromide ion (Br-) and dye tracers are useful for studies of water movement. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Solute transport in the integrated soil-groundwater system

    Detta är en avhandling från Institutionen för anläggning och miljö

    Författare :Eva Simic; KTH.; [2001]
    Nyckelord :solute transport; groundwater transport; integrated soil.groundwater system;

    Sammanfattning : A Lagrangian stochastic travel time approach has been usedfor investigating dominant process impacts on (non-reactive andreactive) solute transport in the integrated soil-groundwatersystem. A first step has also been taken to extending thisLagrangian stochastic travel time approach to integrate thesoil-groundwater-stream transport through a catchment. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Modeling stormwater transport through unsaturated green roof substrates

    Detta är en avhandling från ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Författare :Kaj Pettersson; [2018]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; modeling; Lattice Boltzmann; porous media; CFD; saturation; multiphase; Green roofs;

    Sammanfattning : In recent decades there has been an increase in research regarding green roofs and similar technologies. This increased interest is driven by the requirements of urban development and its effects both on humans and the environment. LÄS MER
