  1. 1. Integrated design and construction for bridges: key aspects and benefits

    Author : Daniel P T Ekström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; industrialized construction; ICT; concurrent engineering; BIM; integrated design; Lean Construction; Integration in construction;

    Abstract : The rate of productivity and innovation capacity within the Swedish construction industry of today is perceived to lead to a poor return of investment within infrastructures. Bridges, are commonly designed for a long service-life, and all stages after realization is greatly dependent on and constrained by decisions made during design and construction of the structure.

  3. 3. Emission estimation based on traffic models and measurements

    Author : Nikolaos Tsanakas; Jan T. Lundgren; Joakim Ekström; Johan Olstam; Marcus Gerstenberger; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Traffic congestion increases travel times, but also results in higher energy usage and vehicular emissions. To evaluate the impact of traffic emissions on environment and human health, the accurate estimation of their rates and location is required. READ MORE

  4. 4. Bacterial Regulation of Peripheral Immunity : Mechanistic insights from lactobacilli and Staphylococcus aureus

    Author : Manuel Mata Forsberg; Eva Sverremark-Ekström; Monika Brunner-Weinzierl; Stockholms universitet; []
