  1. 1. Alexithymia : Background and consequences

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Occupational Therapy and Elderly Care Research (NEUROTEC)

    Author : Margareta Posse; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alexithymia; somatization; depressive symptoms; personality traits; somatic and psychic anxiety; social disability; psychosocial stress; gastrointestinal symptoms; prevalence; primary care; occupational health; longitudinal study;

    Abstract : Aims of the study: The aim of this thesis was to acquire a deeper understanding of alexithymia and its correlates by establishing its nature of state or trait (stability over time), its prevalence among primary care patients and its prevalence in a working female population. We also aimed at identifying some of the psychological factors that are predictive of alexithymia as well as some of its consequences. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microstructure and mechanical properties of Ti-6Al-4V welds produced with different processes

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Sakari Tolvanen; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fatigue; welding; porosity; microstructure; defects; Ti-6Al-4V;

    Abstract : Titanium alloys are widely used for components in the fan and compressor sections of aeroengines mainly because of their superior strength-to-weight ratio. Large static compressor components can be manufactured by welding together smaller subcomponents, which has potential to provide benefits such as higher buy-to-fly ratio and improved performance of the components.
