  1. 1. Statistical Seismology Studies in Central America : b-value, seismic hazard and seismic quiescence

    Author : David Aníbal Monterroso Juárez; Ota Kulhánek; Stefan Wiemer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; b-value; seismic hazard; Monte Carlo; seismic quiescence; Central America; stress; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik;

    Abstract : The present thesis collects results of research applying theory and methods of statistical seismology to the seismicity of Central America, a region with a complex tectonic setting controlled by the interaction of four major plates, namely the Caribbean, Cocos, Nazca and North American plates.Three different earthquake catalogues were used for studies focused on stress in a tectonic volume, seismic hazard maps and seismicity patterns (precursors), covering the region 94ºW to 81ºW and 5ºN to 20ºN.

    Abstract : Over 60% of global greenhouse gas emissions derive from household consumption patterns. To reach the 1.5-degree target set in the Paris Agreement, new interventions to influence household behaviours are needed. This thesis examined two areas, household electricity consumption and waste sorting, where behaviour plays a large role. READ MORE

  3. 3. Peak Shear Strength of Rock Joints – Towards a Methodology for Prediction Based on Field Data

    Author : Francisco Ríos Bayona; Fredrik Johansson; Diego Mas Ivars; Stefan Larsson; José Muralha; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rock joints; peak shear strength; DEM; matedness; aperture; Bergssprickor; skjuvhållfasthet; DEM; sprickans passning; sprickvidd; Jord- och bergmekanik; Soil and Rock Mechanics;

    Abstract : The rock joint shear strength at field scale is an important design parameter and remains a challenge for rock mechanics engineers. In Sweden, there exist a large number of concrete dams that are founded on rock masses which in many cases contain sub-horizontal rock joints. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of Methods for Phase System Characterization in Liquid Chromatography

    Author : Jörgen Samuelsson; Torgny Fornstedt; Karin Caldwell; Attila Felinger; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Analytical chemistry; Liquid chromatography; Adsorption isotherms; Adsorption energy distribution; Tracer pulse method; Elution by characteristic points; Peak deformation; Validation; Hybrid column material; Alkaline separation; Injection-profiles; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis is first and foremost to improve the fundamental knowledge of nonlinear and preparative separation theory by focusing on some of the remaining “white spots” on the theoretical chromatographic map. Secondly, the acquired knowledge is used to develop, validate and execute new methods for phase characterization in liquid chromatography. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heterogeneously Catalyzed Valorization of Monoterpenes to High Value-Added Chemicals

    Author : Mikhail Golets; Jyri-Pekka Mikkola; Evgenii Rebrov; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Catalysis; terpenes; alpha-pinene;

    Abstract : A potential industrial process is profitable only if it is successfully implemented by the continuously developing chemical industry. Throughout last decades heterogeneous catalysis has opened doors to the creation of various know-how products which previously were considered unfeasible. READ MORE
