  1. 1. Muscle Thixotropy : Implications for Human Motor Control

    Author : Hans Axelson; Karl-Erik Hagbarth; Mikael Elam; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Motor control; Skeletal muscle; Thixotropy; History-dependent; EMG; Voluntary contractions; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi;

    Abstract : Human skeletal muscles possess thixotropic, i.e. history-dependent mechanical properties. This means that the degree of passive muscle stiffness and resting tension is dependent on the immediately preceding history of contractions and length changes. READ MORE

  2. 2. Retarded sorption in wood : experimental study, analyses and modeling

    Author : Håkan Håkansson; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building construction; transient; non-linear model; swelling-shrinkage; latent heat effect; history-dependent sorption; anomalous sorption; non-Fickian; retarded sorption; measurements; moisture; wood; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Models of moisture flow processes in wood are normally based on a Fickian approach. In many instances, there are considerable discrepancies between modelling and experimental results. It is shown in this thesis that a major cause for these discrepancies is a so-called retarded sorption which is not accounted for in conventional theories. READ MORE

  3. 3. Touching the Essence of Life : Haptic Virtual Proteins for Learning

    Author : Petter Bivall; Anders Ynnerman; Lena A. E. Tibell; Matthew D. Cooper; Miriam Reiner; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Haptics; Educational Research; Biomolecular Education; Life Science; JND; Just Noticeable Difference; Protein-ligand Docking; Haptic docking; Visualization; Haptic Transfer Functions; Volume Data Haptics; History Dependent Transfer Function; Log file analysis; Molecular Recognition; Force Feedback; Virtual Reality; Other information technology; Övrig informationsteknik;

    Abstract : This dissertation presents research in the development and use of a multi-modal visual and haptic virtual model in higher education. The model, named Chemical Force Feedback (CFF), represents molecular recognition through the example of protein-ligand docking, and enables students to simultaneously see and feel representations of the protein and ligand molecules and their force interactions.

  4. 4. Coupled thermal, metallurgical and mechanical models of multipass welding

    Author : Lars Börjesson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis deals with modelling and simulation of thermo mechanical processes in multipass welding. The aim of the simulations is to predict the residual stresses and/or the deformations that occur after welding. These residual stresses and deformations are caused by the high temperature gradients due to the local heating. READ MORE

  5. 5. Simulation of bending and hydroforming : constitutive modeling and failure prediction

    Author : Mikael Jansson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : hydroforming; anisotropy; aluminium; finite element simulation; forming limits;

    Abstract : In recent years, the automotive industry has shown increased interest in reducing weight and improving environmental effects of cars. This has lead to an increased use of lightweight parts. READ MORE
