  1. 1. Studies in Glacier Mass Balance : Measurement and its errors

    Author : Andrew Mercer; Peter Jansson; Gunhild Rosqvist; Ian Brown; Jonathan Carrivick; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Glaciology; Mass Balance; Measurement Errors; Physical Geography; naturgeografi;

    Abstract : The study of the surface mass balance of valley glaciers has a long history but one that is dogged by uncertainty and errors, and uncertainty about those errors. These problems are acknowledged by the glaciological community and have been examined and formalised in several publications. READ MORE

  2. 2. Learning about the unobservable : The role of attitudes, measurement errors, norms and perceptions in user behaviour

    Author : Juan Manuel Lorenzo Varela; Yusak Susilo; R. Daniel Jonsson; Maria Börjesson; Soora Rasouli; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Attitudes; Measurement errors; Discrete choice analysis; Latent variables; Model misspecification; Normative beliefs; Rail factor; User perceptions; Social norms; Value of travel time savings; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Unobservable factors are important to understand user behaviour. Moreover, they contain information to help design services that willsolve today’s challenges. Yet, we have barely scratched the surface ofthe underlying mechanisms ruling user behaviour. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Efficient Measurement of the Impact of Hardware Errors in Computer Systems

    Author : Behrooz Sangchoolie; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fault Injection; bit-flip errors; error sensitivity; soft errors; efficiency;

    Abstract : Technology and voltage scaling is making integrated circuits increasingly susceptible to failures caused by soft errors. The source of soft errors are temporary hardware faults that alter data and signals in digital circuits. READ MORE

  4. 4. Precision measurement instruments for machinery's mechanical compliance: design and operation : Measurement instruments for physics-based calibration of advanced manufacturing machinery

    Author : Nikolas Alexander Theissen; Andreas Archenti; Alexander Slocum; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Measurement instruments; Machine tools; Industrial robots; Production Engineering; Industriell produktion;

    Abstract :  Precision Measurement Instruments (PMIs) for machinery’s mechanical compliance are tools to quantify mechanical load as well as length for measurement ranges of 0.1 µm to 10 m at uncertainty levels of 0.1 µm to 100 µm while exerting mechanical loads. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ultra-Wideband Time Domain Measurement Systems for Microwave Tomography

    Author : Xuezhi Zeng; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Time DomainMeasurement; Ultra-Wideband; EquivalentTime Sampling; Real Time Sampling; Microwave Tomography; Measurement Error; Frequency Domain Measurement;

    Abstract : As a potential imaging modality for biomedical applications, microwave tomography has attracted a lot of interests in recent years. With microwave tomography, microwave signals are transmitted into the biological tissues and the scattered fields are recorded. READ MORE
