  1. 1. On the Application of Surface Wave Surveys for Seismic Site Response Evaluation

    University dissertation from Engineering Geology, Lund University

    Author : Edwin Obando; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Surface wave; MASW; seismic site response; ground motion; seismic transfer functions; shear wave velocity; site amplification; walk-away; near-field effect; dispersion curve.;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English The work presented here is about methods that will enable more precise estimates of soil and rock parameters related to seismic hazard mapping, in particular when resources are limited. This will allow for evaluating the seismic risk in countries where earthquakes are frequent and large budgets are not available. READ MORE

  2. 2. Essays on Income Taxation and Wealth Inequality

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Economics, Uppsala University

    Author : Jacob Lundberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; public economics; income taxation; wealth inequality; Laffer curve; redistribution; microsimulation; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with inequality, redistribution and taxation, in particular the taxation of labour income and the distribution of wealth. Most of the analysis is focused on Sweden. The thesis consists of four self-contained essays.Essay 1: “Analyzing tax reforms using the Swedish Labour Income Microsimulation Model”. READ MORE

  3. 3. A two-step regression method with connections to partial least squares and the growth curve model

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Economics, Uppsala University

    Author : Ying Li; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Prediction of a continuous response variable from background data is considered. The independent prediction variable data may have a collinear structure and comprise group effects. A new two-step regression method inspired by PLS (partial least squares regression) is proposed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanical Behaviour of Adhesive Joints in Cartonboard for Packaging

    University dissertation from Karlstad : Karlstad University

    Author : Christer Korin; Karlstads universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hot melt Adhesives; Carton board; Y-peel; Peel strength; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : A cartonboard package is often sealed and closed with an adhesive – either a hot-melt adhesive (adhesives that are applied in a molten state on the cartonboard) or a dispersion adhesive (adhesives that are applied as water-based dispersions). This thesis focuses on the process of hot-melt gluing, and how material properties and process conditions affect the performance of the adhesive joint. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling Flow and Solute Transport in Packed Beds Applications in On-site Wastewater Treatment Systems

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Amir Jourak; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : The use of separate phosphorus (P) filter units containing replaceable filter materials with a high P binding capacity have been suggested as an appropriate passive method to treat the P from pre-treated domestic wastewater in on-site facilities. A large number of materials have been identified and suggested as being potentially suitable for such filters. READ MORE
