  1. 1. The heart rate method for estimating oxygen uptake in walking and cycle commuting : Evaluations based on reproducibility and validity studies of the heart rate method and a portable metabolic system

    Author : Jane Salier Eriksson; Peter Schantz; Hans Rosdahl; Jostein Hallén; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Heart rate; Oxygen consumption; Validity; Reproducibility; Oxycon Mobile; Douglas Bag Method; Cycle commuting; Walking commuting; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Walking and cycling to work can contribute to population health, but more objective knowledge concerning exercise intensities, oxygen uptake and the metabolic demands of this physical activity is needed for this and other evaluations. To attain this, valid and reliable instruments are a requirement. READ MORE

  2. 2. Radiotherapy in a FLASH : Towards clinical translation of ultra-high dose rate electron therapy

    Author : Elise Konradsson; Lund Medicinsk strålningsfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Radiotherapy; Dosimetry; Ultra-high dose rate; Electron therapy; FLASH; Fysicumarkivet A:2023:Konradsson;

    Abstract : FLASH radiotherapy (FLASH-RT) is a promising new approach to radiotherapy that has the potential to transform the field. By administering radiation at ultra-high dose rates (UHDR) on a millisecond timescale, FLASH-RT may increase normal tissue tolerance compared to conventional radiotherapy while maintaining the anti-tumoral effect.

  3. 3. Speciation and Metabolic rate : Insights from an avian hybrid zone

    Author : S. Eryn McFarlane; Anna Qvarnström; Jenny Boughman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; resting metabolic rate; life history; hybridization; speciation; reproductive isolation; Ficedula flycatcher; Biologi med inriktning mot zooekologi; Biology with specialization in Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : The role of divergent climate adaptation in speciation has received surprisingly little scientific attention. My dissertation research focused on how resting metabolic rate (RMR) relates to the build up of prezygotic and postzygotic isolation in a natural Ficedula flycatcher hybrid zone. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling of the Fletcher-Gent effect and obtaining hyperelastic parameters for filled elastomers

    Author : Rickard Österlöf; Leif Kari; Per-Erik Austrell; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; filled elastomers; natural rubber; carbon black; Fletcher-Gent effect; Payne-effect; finite strain; hyperelastic;

    Abstract : The strain amplitude dependency , i.e. the Fletcher-Gent effect and Payne effect, and the strain rate dependency of rubber with reinforcing fillers is modelled using a modified boundary surface model and implemented uniaxially. READ MORE

  5. 5. Advanced Materials for Rechargeable Lithium Batteries

    Author : Jae-Kwang Kim; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Rechargeable lithium battery; rate capability; Organic electrode; cycle stability.; Ionic liquid-based polymer electrolyte; electrochemical stability;

    Abstract : Lithium rechargeable batteries have gained much attention in the pursuit for alternative energy sources because of advantages such as high energy density and high electric potential. In addition, the development of low-cost materials has been of interest to reduce the cost of batteries, especially those destined for transportation applications such as electric (EVs) or hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs).
