  4. 4. Vibroacoustic performance of wooden buildings : Prediction and Perception

    University dissertation from Engineering Acoustics, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Juan Negreira; [2016-04-27]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Prediction tools; Low frequency vibrations; Vibroacoustics; Wooden buildings; Impact sound insulation; Finite element method; Vibration measurements; Flanking transmission; Elastomers; Design indicators; Vibration acceptability; Vibration annoyance; MEMS accelerometers;

    Abstract : When the Swedish building regulations in 1994 allowed wooden multi-storey buildings to be built, this type of lightweight construction became popular due to its low cost and ease of construction, as well as wood being a plentiful resource in Sweden. However, complaints amid inhabitants are often reported due to nuisances caused by disturbing vibrations and noise propagating in the building. READ MORE

  5. 5. Prediction of Alzheimer’s disease in subjects with Mild Cognitive Impairment using biomarkers

    University dissertation from Clinical Memory Research Unit, Lund University

    Author : Peder Buchhave; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer’s disease; Mild Cognitive Impairment; Biomarkers; Prediction; Cerebrospinal fluid; Amyloid.;

    Abstract : Background: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. In order to have effect of future disease-modifying therapies for AD, the disease must be identified early, before the patients have developed dementia. Many patients with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) have prodromal AD, but other causes for the syndrome are common. READ MORE
