  1. 1. The Visible and the Invisible : Color Contrast Phenomena in Space

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Gertrud Olsson; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; color in architecture; color theory; color phenomena; simultaneous contrast; simultané; afterimage; transparency; material and immaterial; color mixture; light-colors; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Aesthetic subjects Art; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Estetiska ämnen Konstvetenskap; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Architecture and architectural conservation and restoration Architecture; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Arkitektur och bebyggelsevård Arkitektur;

    Abstract : This study deals with the changes in color that arise in space, primarily simultaneous contrast in three dimensions. The typical account of simultaneous contrast is that the contrast phenomenon occurs between two or more color surfaces seen together, thus affecting one another. READ MORE

  2. 2. Heat and Mass Transfer in Built Structures - Numerical Analyses

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Jinkai Wang; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur; Civil engineering and architecture; gas-filled foam; thermal aging; long-term thermal performance; heat; air and moisture transport; air convection; simulation; numerical stability; numerical procedure;

    Abstract : Heat and mass transport processes are often present simultaneously in built structures in building applications. The emphasis of this thesis is to contribute to knowledge about predicting the effects of combined heat and mass transport in built structures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genomics and bioinformatics strategies in the study of aging and Alzheimer disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics

    Author : Mun-Gwan Hong; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : To understand complex phenotypes, medical research has evolved from the study of single genes and proteins to approaches that encompass more comprehensive catalogues of molecules. Among the more widely used are genome-wide expression and high-throughput genotyping, the latter primarily making use of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in what has been termed genome-wide association studies (GWAS).

  4. 4. Decoding the complex brain : multivariate and multimodal analyses of neuroimaging data

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Alireza Salami; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; multivariate analysis; univariate analysis; multimodal imaging; episodic memory; aging; functional magnetic resonance imaging; diffusion tensor imaging; biology; biologi; Psychology; psykologi; Computerized Image Analysis; datoriserad bildanalys;

    Abstract : Functional brain images are extraordinarily rich data sets that reveal distributed brain networks engaged in a wide variety of cognitive operations. It is a substantial challenge both to create models of cognition that mimic behavior and underlying cognitive processes and to choose a suitable analytic method to identify underlying brain networks.

  5. 5. Environmentally Friendly Plasticizers for PVC : Improved Material Properties and Long-term Performance Through Plasticizer Design

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Annika Lindström; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : poly butylene adipate ; poly vinyl chloride ; plasticizers; miscibility; mechanical properties; surface segregation; migration; degradation products; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Polymer chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : Linear and branched poly(butylene adipate) polyesters with number-average molecular weights ranging from 700 to 10 000 g/mol, and degrees of branching ranging from very low to hyperbranched were solution cast with PVC to study the effects of chemical structure, molecular weight, end-group functionality, and chain architecture on plasticizing efficiency and durability. Miscibility was evaluated by the existence of a single glass transition temperature and a shift of the carbonyl group absorption band. READ MORE
