  1. 1. Towards a Holocene tephrochronology for the Azores

    Author : Hans Johansson; Stefan Wastegård; Otto Hermelin; Ewa M. Lind; Christine S. Lane; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; kvartärgeologi; Quaternary Geology;

    Abstract : The Azores is situated in the North Atlantic Ocean and is one of the most active volcanicregions in the Northern Hemisphere. The volcanic history of the islands is fairly wellknown and several explosive trachytic eruptions have been reported but the geochemicalcompositions of the glass component of the tephra as well as the dispersal oftephras to distal areas are less well known.

  2. 2. Communication and Positioning Uncertainties in Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems

    Author : Erik M Steinmetz; RISE; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cooperative positioning; resource allocation; cooperative intelligent transportation systems; packet reliability; vehicular communication;

    Abstract : The current road transport system has problems with both safety and efficiency. Future intelligent transportation systems (ITS) are envisioned to alleviate these problems. In particular, cooperative ITS, where vehicles are connected to each other and the cloud, will allow vehicles to collaborate and share both sensor and control information. READ MORE

  3. 3. Speed characteristics of urban streets based on driver behaviour studies and simulation

    Author : Karin F. M. Aronsson; Karl-Lennart Bång; Bengt Holmberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : Speed; Characteristics; Urban area; Road network; Street; Traffic; Driver; Side-friction element; Driving simulator; Simulation; Measurement; Behaviour; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The objective of the study was to gain in-depth knowledge of speed relationships for urban streets. The speed characteristics were examined using a number of methods for data collection. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of side friction impacts on urban roads : Case study Dar-es-Salaam

    Author : Masatu L. M. Chiguma; Karl-Lennart Bång; Christer Hydén; KTH; []
    Keywords : Side friction factors; urban road links; speed-flow relationships; macroscopic method; microscopic method; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Side friction factors are defined as all those actions related to the activities taking place by the sides of the road and sometimes within the road, which interfere with the traffic flow on the travelled way. They include but not limited to pedestrians, bicycles, non-motorised vehicles, parked and stopping vehicles. READ MORE

  5. 5. Athletic Sprint Start Biomechanics : Investigations into the relationships between three dimensional starting technique, first step width and performance

    Author : Paul Nicolas Sandamas; Anton Arndt; Elena M. Gutierrez-Farewik; Aki Salo; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sprint start; step width; biomechanics; performance; angular momentum; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : The block and early acceleration phase plays a very important role in the overall outcome of athletic sprint events. During this part of the race it is commonly observed that sprinters use a lower-body technique that involves the swing leg crossing medially in front of the athlete followed by wide steps. READ MORE
