  1. 1. Design in the space between stories : design for social innovation and sustainability–from responding to societal challenges to preparing for societal collapse

    Author : Anders Emilson; Ezio Manzini; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : Interaction design; Participatory design; Design for social innovation and sustainability; Design fiction; Collapse informatics; Design things; Resilience; Sustainability; Collapse; Frames; Transition; Scenarios;

    Abstract : We seem to be approaching the end of the era we know as Industrial Civilization. If this is the case, we will leave a stable period of progress and growth and enter into a long period of decline where many of our systems and support structures will collapse. READ MORE

  2. 2. Core-collapse Supernovae : Theory vs. Observations

    Author : Dennis Alp; Josefin Larsson; Sergey Tsygankov; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Astrophysics; Supernovae; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : A core-collapse supernova (CCSN) is an astronomical explosion that indicates the death of a massive star. The iron core of the star collapses into either a neutron star or a black hole while the rest of the material is expelled at high velocities. READ MORE

  3. 3. Gravitational collapse in bimetric gravity

    Author : Marcus Högås; Edvard Mörtsell; Tomi Koivisto; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bimetric gravity; bigravity; modified gravity; gravitational collapse; Bimetrisk gravitation; modifierad gravitation; gravitationskollaps; Theoretical Physics; teoretisk fysik;

    Abstract : Einstein’s theory of general relativity has been the prevailing theory of classical gravity for over a century. Its observational consistency is unparalleled. There are however a few (arguably) serious short-comings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Collective Collapse and Performance Contagion in Basketball

    Author : Simon Granér; Institutionen för psykologi; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; team momentum; performance contagion; team performance; Collective collapse;

    Abstract : In this thesis, collective collapse in basketball is investigated. Although experienced by most team sport players, the phenomenon still puzzles the world of sports. Collective collapse is described as a sudden decrease in performance quality by a sport team, often with a devastating effect on the game outcome. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical Modelling of Timber Building Components to Prevent Disproportionate Collapse

    Author : Johannes A. J. Huber; Sven Berg; Dick Sandberg; Mats Ekevad; Ulf Arne Girhammar; Jan-Willem G. van de Kuilen; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; finite element modelling; alternative load paths; cross laminated timber; progressive collapse; CT scanning; fibre reconstruction; image analysis; Träteknik; Wood Science and Engineering;

    Abstract : An increasing number of multi-storey buildings are being constructed with engineered wood products, such as glulam or cross-laminated timber (CLT). Multi-storey timber buildings can be safely designed for foreseeable loads, but knowledge is limited concerning their ability to survive unforeseeable events, e.g. READ MORE
