Management of Construction Logistics in Stockholm: Identifying Ways of Improvement for Construction Logistics Within the Inner City of Stockholm

The construction industry is similar to other manufacturing industries. A production is made up of several small moments and the final product arises when all these steps are completed. Each one of these operations is equally important and increased efficiency is required at all stages. An often forgotten step when discussing efficiency in the construction industry is the logistic process. […]

Geopolymer Concrete: the Green Alternative With Suitable Structural Properties

Concrete is the most widely used building material around the world because of the availability of raw materials, the simplicity in preparation and the moulding into different shapes. One of the main ingredients in a normal concrete mixture is Portland cement. However recent literature reveals that cement industry accounts for approximately 5 % of the current man made carbon dioxide […]

Development of Non-linear Numerical Models Appropriate for the Analysis of Jack-up Units

Jack-up units have considerable economic significance because they are used to carry out a large proportion of the world’s oil and gas exploration in water depths less than 90.0m. Due to the increase in use of jack-ups in harsher environments, analysis techniques assuming quasi-static and linear structural behaviour have had to be reassessed. This thesis is concerned with non-linear dynamic […]
