  1. 11. Human Body Model Morphing for Assessment of Crash Rib Fracture Risk for the Population of Car Occupants

    Author : Karl-Johan Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; crash; human body model; morphing; SAFER HBM; rib fracture risk; vehicle safety;

    Abstract : Fractured ribs are prevalent injury outcomes for vehicle occupants involved in crashes. Sex, age, and anthropometry of an occupant influences the risk to sustain rib fractures. READ MORE

  2. 12. Types for Crash Preventionn

    Author : Lars Pareto; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : reliability; dependability; concurrent programming; denotational semantics; real-time systems and embedded systems; data-flow; dynamic storage management; applicative functional programming languages ; type systems;

    Abstract : This thesis seeks to strengthen the capabilities of static polymorphic type-checking (as known from typed lambda calculus and functional programming) to allow a larger class of programming errors to be caught at compile time: the goal is to not only prevent illegal uses of data, but to also errors that lead to busy-loops, deadlocks, stack-overflows and heap-overflows. The thesis exploits that, for recursive programs, many correctness properties (including freedom from errors leading to busy-loops, etc. READ MORE

  3. 13. Comorbidity and vascular risk factors  associated with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus : the INPH-CRasH Study

    Author : Hanna Israelsson Larsen; Jan Malm; Anders Eklund; Norman Relkin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hydrocephalus; normal pressure; vascular disease; vascular risk factors; elderly; depression; case control study; epidemiology; dementia; vascular dementia; small vessel disease; cerebrovascular disease; transient ischemic attack; Neurology; neurologi;

    Abstract : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) is a dementia treatable by insertion of a cerebrospinal fluid shunt. It has been suggested that INPH has similar pathophysiological mechanisms as cerebrovascular disease, but the vascular risk factor (VRF) profile of INPH patients has not been assessed using a modern epidemiological approach.

  4. 14. Forecasting Indian Road Traffic Casualties: Guidance to Prioritize Road Safety Technologies and Regulations

    Author : Pradeep Puthan Pisharam; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; effectiveness; safety benefit; Accidents; future crashes; vision zero; assessment; evaluation; crash; ADAS;

    Abstract : India accounts for 11% (nearly 150,000) of global road traffic deaths and its fatality rate is 22.6 per 100,000 people, almost three times higher than that of the European region. India is committed to reducing fatalities and has signed the Stockholm declaration to halve the fatalities by 2030. READ MORE

  5. 15. Train crashes : consequences for passengers

    Author : Rebecca Forsberg; Ulf Björnstig; Britt-Inger Saveman; Inggard Lereim; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Accident; crash; disaster; experiences; injuries; injury inducing objects; media coverage; railway; safety;

    Abstract : Background: Globally, and in Sweden, passenger railway transport is steadily increasing. Sweden has been relatively free from severe train crashes in the last decades, but the railway infrastructure is alarmingly worn and overburdened, which may be one reason for an increasing number of reported mishaps.
