  1. 1. Acoustic excitation and transmission of lightweight structures

    Author : Jonas Brunskog; Teknisk akustik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; point mobility; Lamb waves; wood.; Building construction; plate excitation; cavities; near-periodicity; nearly periodic; sound insulation; timber; structural acoustics; spatial Fourier transform; resilient device; prediction model; periodic; lightweight; ISO tapping machine; airborne noise; Building acoustics; impact noise; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : In order to increase our knowledge of the sound transmission and radiation processes of lightweight wall and floor structures, theoretical models are needed. Detailed models may form a valuable tool. In lightweight floor structures, impact sound insulation is perhaps the most important property to consider. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vibrations in Lightweight Buildings - Perception and Prediction

    Author : Juan Negreira; Teknisk akustik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Psycho-vibratory evaluation; Vibrations; Timber floors; Lightweight; Measurements; Serviceability criteria; Vibration annoyance; Vibration acceptability; Elastomer; Finite element method; Prediction Tools.;

    Abstract : When the Swedish construction code (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, and also because wood is a plentiful resource in Sweden. Drawbacks in such buildings are disturbing vibrations and noise propagating in the construction, especially through junctions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lightweight multifunctional composites : An investigation into ion-inserted carbon fibres for structural energy storage, shape-morphing, energy harvesting & strain-sensing

    Author : Ross Harnden; Dan Zenkert; Paolo Ermanni; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Aerospace Engineering; Flyg- och rymdteknik;

    Abstract : The transport sector accounts for around 26% of all greenhouse gas emissions in the European Union and United Kingdom. By reducing the mass of vehicles it is possible to reduce these emissions substantially.One way to reduce vehicle mass is to use multifunctional structures. READ MORE

  4. 4. A Study on Structural Cores for Lightweight Steel Sandwiches

    Author : Samuel Hammarberg; Pär Jonsén; Daniel Berglund; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lightweight; Sandwich; Steel; Energy absorption; Homogenization; Finite element; Hållfasthetslära; Solid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Lightweight materials and structures are essential building blocks for a future with sustainable transportation and automotive industries. Incorporating lightweight materials and structures in today's vehicles, reduces weight and energy consumption while maintaining, or even improving, necessary mechanical properties and behaviors.

  5. 5. On Some Symmetric Lightweight Cryptographic Designs

    Author : Martin Ågren; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lightweight cryptography; integrity; authentication; symmetric cryptography; stream ciphers; block ciphers; Grain-128a; BEAN; KTANTAN; textsc{PRINTcipher}; FCSR combiner; related-key attack; linear cryptanalysis; linear correlations; invariant subspace attack.;

    Abstract : This dissertation presents cryptanalysis of several symmetric lightweight primitives, both stream ciphers and block ciphers. Further, some aspects of authentication in combination with a keystream generator is investigated, and a new member of the Grain family of stream ciphers, Grain-128a, with built-in support for authentication is presented.
