  1. 1. Remote Acoustic Characterization of Thin Sheets

    Author : Etienne Mfoumou; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Remote acoustic excitation; material characterization; acoustic NDT; vibration-based technique; sheet material evaluation; fracture toughness.;

    Abstract : There is a need to monitor the existence and effects of damage in structural materials. Aircraft components provide a much publicized example, but the need exists in a variety of other structures, such as layered materials used in food packaging industries. READ MORE

  2. 2. EVALUATION OF ACOUSTIC COMFORT IN APARTMENT BUILDINGS

    Author : Nikolas Vardaxis; Teknisk akustik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustic comfort; field measurements; noise annoyance; subjective responses;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns assessment of acoustic comfort in apartment buildings. A new approach is followed, beyond noise annoyance investigation, which was the typical path so far. The latter involved acoustic descriptors, which characterize the structural components, being associated to self-reported noise annoyance. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to explore prosodic problems in Swedish children with language impairment (LI). In the first study, 29 children with LI participated. They were assessed with an assessment procedure for prosody at the word, phrase and discourse levels, developed within this thesis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lamb wave evaluation of concrete plates

    Author : Oskar Tofeldt; Teknisk geologi; []
    Keywords : Lamb waves; guided waves; impact-echo; concrete; non-destructive evaluation;

    Abstract : This thesis is about the application of Lamb waves for non-destructive evaluation of plate-like concrete structures under one-sided access test condition using a portable equipment consisting of an accelerometer and impact hammer. With this type of equipment and based on array signal processing, the impact-echo (IE) method can be extended with measurements of surface waves; this extension allows an evaluation with Lamb waves.

  5. 5. Acoustic and afterload evaluation of left ventricular assist devices

    Author : Per Sundbom; Henrik Casimir Ahn; Laila Hübbert; Fredrik Gustafsson; Daniel M. G. Karlsson; Michael Broomé; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Afterload; Electronic stethoscope; Flow; HeartMate II; HeartMate 3; iOS-devices; Sound Analysis;

    Abstract : Background: Heart Failure is a serious condition with consequences not only for the individual patient but also for the society with a 5-year mortality rate of 45-60%, and a substantial economic burden. The estimated prevalence in Sweden is 2.2% and the age adjusted prevalence increases with higher age. READ MORE
