  1. 1. Sensing capability of nanomodified Portland cement composites

    Author : Thanyarat Buasiri; Andrzej Cwirzen; Karin Habermehl-Cwirzen; Jan Olek; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Sensing cementitious composites; nanomodified Portland cement; Carbon nanofibers; CNF; piezoresistive materials; sensor; cement-based sensor; self-monitoring; sensing capability; Byggmaterial; Building Materials;

    Abstract : Sensing cement-based composites refer to composites that have sensing functionality that can measure several physical and chemical parameters. Sensing cement-based composites are fabricated by incorporating some functional fillers, such as conductive fibers (CFs), carbon nanofibers (CNFs), carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and graphene, into conventional concrete.

  2. 2. Wireless Sensor Networks for Development : Potentials and Open Issues

    Author : Marco Zennaro; Björn Pehrson; Andreas Kassler; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Telecommunication; Telekommunikation;

    Abstract : Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) provide a way to bridge the gap between the physical and the virtual worlds. They promise unprecedented abilities to observe and understand large-scale, real-world phenomena at a fine spatial-temporal resolution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Melanophores : cell biophysics and sensor applications

    Author : Martin Testorf; P. Åke Öberg; Ingemar Lundström; Philip McFadden; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with studies of melanophores and melanosomes by means of a physical approach. Melanophores are pigment cells that give the black colour to many vertebrates, e.g. fishes, frogs, and reptiles. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lessons Learned in Structural Health Monitoring of Bridges Using Advanced Sensor Technology

    Author : Merit Enckell; Johan Silfwerbrand; Konrad Bergmeister; KTH; []
