  1. 1. Green Logistics through Modal Shift - exploring the role of the transport capacity contract

    Author : Fredrik Eng Larsson; Teknisk logistik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; green logistics; modal shift; mode choice; capacity management; supply chain contracting; intermodal transport;

    Abstract : Among policy-makers in Europe the modal shift - a shift från polluting modes of freight transport to less polluting modes - has been a popular suggestion for reducing CO2-emissions of transportation. In particular, intermodal road-rail solutions, where a combination of road and rail transport is utilized to move trailers and containers, have been stressed as an important measure to reach de desired reduction in emissions.

  2. 2. On the Incentives to Shift to Low-Carbon Freight Transport

    Author : Fredrik Eng Larsson; Teknisk logistik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; low-carbon transport; green logistics; sustainability; operations and the environment; supply chain management; incentive alignment;

    Abstract : The transport sector accounts for approximately 20% of EU-27 greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and 27% of U.S. GHG emissions. With the Kyoto Protocol, Sweden and several other nations have agreed to reduce these emissions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quality aspects in direct shear testing of rock joints

    Author : Jörgen Larsson; Fredrik Johansson; Alejano Leandro; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rock joints; geometrical quality assurance; replicas; direct shear testing; normal stiffness; bergssprickor; geometrisk kvalitetssäkring; replikor; skjuvhållfasthetprovning; normalstyvhet.; Jord- och bergmekanik; Soil and Rock Mechanics; normal stiffness.;

    Abstract : The stability of rock masses is influenced by the occurrence of rock joints. Therefore, the shear strength of rock joints must be considered in dimensioning of underground constructions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Assessment of safety characteristics for Li-ion battery cells by abuse testing

    Author : Carl Fredrik Larsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; overcharge; Lithium-ion; toxic gases; abuse test; thermal runaway; short circuit; safety; battery; fire;

    Abstract : Despite the many advantages with lithium-ion batteries there can be disadvantages in form of safetyissues. In an abuse situation a Li-ion cell can undergo a thermal runaway releasing excessive heat,flammable and toxic gas emissions and eventually accompanied by dissembling/explosion and fire. READ MORE
