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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Magnus Döse; KTH.; Betong & Berg.; [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 Örebro : Örebro universitet

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

    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 Örebro : Örebro universitet

    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. How do biogas solutions influence the sustainability of bio-based industrial systems?

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Linda Hagman; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2018]

    Abstract : Biomass is a valuable and limited resource that should be used efficiently. The potential of replacing fossil-based products with bio-based ones produced in biobased industrial systems is huge. One important aim of increasing the share of biobased products is to improve the sustainability of systems for production and consumption. READ MORE
