  1. 1. Landscapes of Technology Transfer Swedish Ironmakers in India 1860–1864

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Industriell ekonomi och organisation

    Author : Jan Af Geijerstam; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; History of technology; industrial heritage studies; industrial archaeology; technology transfer; diffusion; technological systems; landscapes of technology; iron and steel; charcoal iron; direct and indirect ironmaking; bloomeries; 19th century; indu; History of Science; Technology and Environment; Historiska studier av teknik; vetenskap och miljö;

    Abstract : In the early 1860s three Swedes, Nils Wilhelm Mitander,Julius Ramsay and Gustaf Wittenström, were engaged by theBritish to build and run charcoal-based ironworks in India.These works, the Burwai Iron Works of the British Government inthe case of Mitander and the privately owned Kumaon Iron Worksin the case of Ramsay and Wittenström, were both to bebased on the most modern European technology.

  2. 2. Stimulating the diffusion of environmental technologies through export

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Wisdom Kanda; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2017]

    Abstract : Contemporary environmental problems represent complex societal challenges, and as these problems become increasingly global, the international diffusion of environmental technologies is essential. One way to diffuse technologies internationally is through export. READ MORE

  3. 3. Diffusion-Induced Nonlinear Dynamics in Carbon Nanomechanical Resonators

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Christin Edblom; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; mass sensing; graphene; stochastic differential equations; diffusion; carbon nanotubes; resonators; nanoelectromechanical systems; equations of motion; nonlinear dynamics; dissipation; Fokker-Planck equation; noise; nonequilibrium dynamics;

    Abstract : The emergence of nanoelectromechanical systems has enabled the development of sensors capable of detecting mass, charge, force, position, and spin with an unprecedented precision. In particular, the low mass, high resonant frequency, and high quality factor of carbon nanomechanical resonators make them ideal for the creation of a high sensitivity mass sensor. READ MORE

  4. 4. Diffusion in Bone Tissue

    University dissertation from Solid Mechanics, Faculty of Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Gustav Lindberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2013-11]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; bone growth; diffusion; stress enhanced; finite element method; steady-state; periosteal membrane; diffusion in bovine bone; diffusion experiment; Conductivity measurement; Fick’s law; Fourier series; Kalman filter; transient solution;

    Abstract : In order to prevent or modify the processes of bone degeneration the modeling and remodeling of bone tissue must be better understood. In this thesis it is assumed that the primary condition leading to bone growth is a change of the chemical environment caused by transport of matter resulting from stress driven diffusion. READ MORE

  5. 5. Air diffusion and solid contaminant behaviour in room ventilation a CFD based integrated approach

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Gery Einberg; KTH.; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technology; CFD modelling; airflow rate; ventilation efficiency; diffusers; solid contaminants; IAQ; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : One of the most fundamental human needs is fresh air. It has been estimated that people spend comparatively much time in indoor premises. That creates an elevated need for high-quality ventilation systems in buildings. The ventilation airflow rate is recognised as the main parameter for measuring the indoor air quality. READ MORE
