  1. 1. Generalised linear models with clustered data

    Author : Henrik Holmberg; Göran Broström; Kenneth Carling; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistics; Statistik; Statistics; statistik;

    Abstract : In situations where a large data set is partitioned into many relativelysmall clusters, and where the members within a cluster have some common unmeasured characteristics, the number of parameters requiring estimation tends to increase with sample size if a fixed effects model is applied. This fact causes the assumptions underlying asymptotic results to be violated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Significant history and historical orientation : Ugandan students narrate their historical pasts

    Author : Ulrik Holmberg; Martin Stolare; Kenneth Nordgren; Paul Zanazanian; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; historical learning; history education; History education in Uganda; historical consciousness; historical orientation; upper secondary school; narrative; national narrative; History; Historia;

    Abstract : In 2012, Uganda celebrated 50 years of independence. The postcolonial era in the country has been marked by political turmoil and civil wars. Uganda, like many other postcolonial states in Africa, cannot be described as an ethnically or culturally homogenous state. READ MORE

    Abstract : For more than 50 years total hip replacements have been a common and successful procedure to increase patient mobility and quality of life. The 10-year implant survival rate is 97.8%. READ MORE

  5. 5. Wear of piston rings in hydrostatic transmissions

    Author : Ulf Skytte af Sätra; Sören Andersson; Kenneth Holmberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; piston ring; surface roughness; texture; coating; wear; hydraulic motor; Construction engineering; Konstruktionsteknik; Mechanical engineering; Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : This study focuses on the wear of piston rings in a hydraulic radial piston motor. The piston ring has to satisfy increasing demands for reliability and longer service life. It has two contacting surfaces, the face and the flank, and operates under a boundary lubrication state. READ MORE
