    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; photonic crystal; dispersion property; negative refraction; surface plasmon polariton; designed surface plasmon; negative index material; layer-KKR method; finite-difference time-domain method; plane wave method; subwavelength imaging; open cavity; enhanced transmission; slowing light; TECHNOLOGY Electrical engineering; electronics and photonics Photonics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Elektroteknik; elektronik och fotonik Fotonik;

    Abstract : The dispersion property of periodic structures is a hot research topic in the last decade. By exploiting dispersion properties, one can manipulate the propagation of electromagnetic waves, and produce effects that do not exist in conventional materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Optimisation of Machining Operations by means of Finite Element Method and Tailored Experiments

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Amir Malakizadi; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Response Surface Methodology; inverse identification; bi-metals; flank wear; Wear modelling; thermal fatigue cracking; Finite Element Method; Usui’s model; metal cutting; Johnson-Cook;

    Abstract : The experimental approach has long been the main method to investigate the responses associated with metal cutting process such as cutting forces and temperatures and also to optimise the machining operations to accomplish higher productivity. In recent years, with advances in computing power of computers along with development of robust numerical methods such as Finite Element Method (FEM), it has been possible to simulate different machining process under operational conditions.

    Abstract : Do metal particles (including particles of pure metals, alloys, metal oxides and compounds) pose a hazard or risk to human health? In the light of this question, this thesis summarizes results from research conducted on metal particles, and describes the elaboration and implementation of an in vitro test methodology to study metal release from particles through corrosion and dissolution processes in synthetic biological media relevant for human exposure through inhalation/ingestion and dermal contact.Bioaccessible metals are defined as the pool of released metals from particles that potentially could be made available for absorption by humans or other organisms.

  5. 5. On the Application of Surface Wave Surveys for Seismic Site Response Evaluation

    University dissertation from Engineering Geology, Lund University

    Author : Edwin Obando; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Surface wave; MASW; seismic site response; ground motion; seismic transfer functions; shear wave velocity; site amplification; walk-away; near-field effect; dispersion curve.;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English The work presented here is about methods that will enable more precise estimates of soil and rock parameters related to seismic hazard mapping, in particular when resources are limited. This will allow for evaluating the seismic risk in countries where earthquakes are frequent and large budgets are not available. READ MORE
