  1. 1. Ionizing Radiation in Concrete and Concrete Buildings Empirical Assessments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Magnus Döse; KTH.; RISE.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : One of the major issues with radiation from the natural isotopes 40K, 226Ra (238U) and 232Th and their decay products is the forthcoming legislation from the European Commission in relation to its Basic Safety Directive (2014). The European legislation is mandatory and could not be overthrown by national legislation. READ MORE

    Abstract : A challenge for the clinical management of Parkinson's disease (PD) is the large within- and between-patient variability in symptom profiles as well as the emergence of motor complications which represent a significant source of disability in patients. This thesis deals with the development and evaluation of methods and systems for supporting the management of PD by using repeated measures, consisting of subjective assessments of symptoms and objective assessments of motor function through fine motor tests (spirography and tapping), collected by means of a telemetry touch screen device.

  3. 3. Effects of long-term access to ICT-mediated travel information services - Users’ assessments and reported behavioural changes

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Tor Skoglund; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; ITS - Intelligent Transport Services and Systems; ICT-mediated traveller information; Navigation; Traffic information; Real-time information systems; Travel Planner; Co-modal Travel Planner; Multi-modal Travel Planner; Public transport; Transit; Behavioural change; Assessments; Action spaces;

    Abstract : Great optimism has for some time framed the potential effects that access to ICT-mediated travel information services (ICTIS) have on travellers. Little has however been known about real-life long-term effects of access to ICTIS. The aim of this thesis was thus to create a basis for understanding the role of ICTIS in urban transport of people.

  4. 4. Modelling and measuring resource assessments

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Gró Einarsdóttir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Subjective resources; resource assessments; reference points; well-being; optimism; worry; satisfaction with life; consideration of future consequences; ;

    Abstract : Do you have enough resources? We argue that in order to answer this question it is necessary to consider the type of resource assessed, how a particular resource relates to other resources, and which reference points are used in the assessment. Building on this view, this thesis explores how resource assessments can be conceptualized and measured within an integrative resource framework that takes into account the process of resource evaluation.

  5. 5. Environmental Assessments of Landscape Changes Interdisciplinary studies in rural Tanzania

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Kulturgeografiska institutionen, Uppsala universitet

    Abstract : This thesis aims to show how biogeophysical and social processes are interlinked in landscape change, and to propose approaches for interdisciplinary environmental assessments (such as EIAs), concentrating on developing countries’ situations, and representation of findings from such studies. Landscape in its holistic sense is a very good concept and basis for intellectual and practical use in environmental dialogues. READ MORE
