  1. 1. Strength grading of structural timber and EWP laminations of Norway spruce : Development potentials

    Author : Jan Oscarsson; Anders Olsson; Marie Johansson; Mikael Perstorper; SP Sveriges Tekniska Forskningsinstitut; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; bending strength; fibre angle; grain angle; knots; laser scanning; machine strength grading; modulus of elasticity; strain measurement; structural timber; tensile strength; wood; böjhållfasthet; draghållfasthet; elasticitetsmodul; fibervinkel; konstruktionsvirke; kvistar; laserskanning; maskinell hållfasthetssortering; trä; töjningsmätning; Byggteknik; Civil engineering;

    Abstract : Strength grading of structural timber is a process by which value is added to sawn products. It is to the greater part carried out using machine grading based on statistical relationships between so called indicating properties and bending strength. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mapping the concept of industrialized bridge construction : potentials and obstacles

    Author : Johan Larsson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Improving productivity is a central challenge in most industries and so also in construction. In many countries, such as Great Britain and US (Egan, 1998; Huang et al., 2009; Teichholz, 2001), governmental reports and research publications have highlighted the slow growth of productivity in the construction industry.

  3. 3. Quantitative Tracer Based MRI Perfusion : Potentials and Limitations

    Author : Arvid Morell; Atle Bjørnerud; Håkan Ahlström; Linda Knutsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRI; Perfusion; Contrast agent; Relaxivity; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Tracer based MRI perfusion measurements is a clinically useful tool to assess regional distributions of tissue blood flow and volume. The method may be based on any of the three relaxation mechanisms T1, T1 and T2*, the latter denoted DSC-MRI being the most common. READ MORE

  4. 4. Non-Energy Benefits of Industrial Energy Efficiency : Roles and Potentials

    Author : Therese Nehler; Patrik Thollander; Mats Söderström; Erik Dahlquist; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Climate and environmental targets place significant requirements on energy efficiency and improved industrial energy efficiency is viewed as one of the most important means of reducing CO2 emissions and mitigating climate change. Even though efforts have been undertaken to improve energy efficiency there is still the potential for further improvements to be made. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ultracold atoms in optical potentials : from noise-induced transport to superfluidity

    Author : Martin Zelan; Claude Dion; Sile Nic Chormaic; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Brownian motors; noise-induced transport; superfluidity; ultracold atoms; optical potentials; optical lattices; laser coooling; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : In this thesis, both experimental studies and numerical simulations of ultracold atoms in optical potentials are presented in a collection of nine scientific papers. In particular, noise-induced transport in dissipative optical lattices and superfluid properties of Bose-Einstein condensates have been studied. READ MORE
