  1. 1. Controlling the Roll Responses of PCTC's

    Author : Carl-Johan Söder; Jakob Kuttenkeuler; Dominic Hudson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; PCTC; parametric roll; roll response; roll damping; rudder control; roll mitigation; racking;

    Abstract : Modern Panamax Pure Car and Truck Carriers (PCTC) have become more vulnerable to critical roll responses as built in margins have been traded against increased transport efficiency. The research presented in this licentiate thesis aims at enhancing the predictability and control of these critical roll responses. READ MORE

  2. 2. The neurophysiology of grammatical constraints : ERP studies on the influence of prosody and pragmatics on the processing of syntax and morphology in Swedish

    Author : Mikael Roll; Allmän språkvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; linguistics; event-related potentials; ERP; pragmatics; language processing; prosody; syntax;

    Abstract : This dissertation investigates the interaction of information from word order, morphology, lexical semantics, and prosody in the on-line processing of Swedish sentences using Event-Related Potentials. Study I examines how the form, meaning, and syntactic position of objects influence their interpretation in ‘Object Shift’ contexts. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diffusion of Battery Electric Vehicles : The Role of Total Cost of Ownership

    Author : Jens Hagman; Sofia Ritzèn; Johan Jansson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Total cost of ownership; electric vehicles; e-taxis; vehicle salespeople; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Abstract : Due to their high efficiency, zero tailpipe emissions and possibilities of using renewable electricity, Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) have been proposed as a way to alleviate the negative consequences of transport. However, as with other energy-efficient innovations market uptake or diffusion of BEVs have so far been limited. READ MORE

  4. 4. Some aspects on lubrication and roll wear in rolling mills

    Author : Mohammed Tahir; KTH; []
    Keywords : strip rolling; lubricants; environment; roll wear modeling. Production campaigns; regression analysis;

    Abstract : The thesis is focused on lubricants and roll wear in striprolling.Regarding lubricants, the possibility of introducing newones, which are less detrimental towards environment, isstudied in laboratory scale. This is done for cold rolling,both of an Al- alloy and a low carbon steel. READ MORE

  5. 5. Paper-based Supercapacitors

    Author : Britta Andres; Håkan Olin; Mats Sandberg; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; graphene; graphite; paper; nano fibrillated cellulose; supercapacitor; electric double-layer capacitor; energy storage; roll-to-roll; coating; kinetic energy recovery;

    Abstract : The growing market of mobile electronic devices, renewable off-grid energy sources and electric vehicles requires high-performance energy storage devices. Rechargeable batteries are usually the first choice due to their high energy density. However, supercapacitors have a higher power density and longer life-time compared to batteries. READ MORE
