  1. 21. The Architectural Metaphor : Textual Models in Spatial Construction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Anders Johansson; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Architecture; Architectural theory; Model; Metaphor; Narrative; Representation; Trope; Paul Ricoeur; Max Black; Nelson Goodman; Michel de Certeau;

    Abstract : The dissertation concerns the concept of model withinarchitecture, and elaborates particular uses in this field,where modelling is a heuristic process aiming at invention anddiscovery. Methodologically, this is made by introducing thecomparative concepts of metaphor and narrative. READ MORE

  2. 22. The formation of successful physics students Discourse and identity perspectives on university physics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders Johansson; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : In university physics education, unequal student participation has always been an issue. An example is the fact that men constitute 70–80% of the student body in most countries. READ MORE

  3. 23. Uniformity in physics courses and student diversity A study of learning to participate in physics

    University dissertation from Uppsala

    Author : Anders Johansson; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; undergraduate physics education; science participation; discourse; identity; subject position; quantum physics; electromagnetism; Physics with specialization in Physics Education; Fysik med inriktning mot fysikens didaktik;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis describes an investigation of participation and achievement in undergraduate physics courses with a discourse analytical lens. Issues of unequal participation have been a growing concern for the physics education research community. READ MORE

  4. 24. Vibrational Response Reconstruction and Model Validation

    University dissertation from Uppsala

    Author : Anders Johansson; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; error metrics; response reconstruction; controllability; rig test; drive signal identification; inverse problems; model validation; state space; model updating;

    Abstract : In this thesis, laboratory response reconstruction andcomputational model validation is investigated. The former concernsapplications of control theory as the objective is to reproduce acertain loading for a known component, while the latter concernsoptimization of a parameterized model as the objective is to modifya computational model to mimic a certain component's behavior.
