  1. 1. On Men and Cars : An Ethnographic Study of Gendered, Risky and Dangerous Relations

    Author : Dag Balkmar; Jeff Hearn; Cecilia Åsberg; Victoria Robinson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Gender; masculinity; technology; cars; risk; danger; emotions; car modification; Genus; maskulinitet; teknik; bilar; risk; fara; emotioner; bilstyling; Gender Studies; Genusvetenskap;

    Abstract : It is well known that young men constitute a high-risk group in terms of accidents involving both themselves and others. But comparatively little is known about the roles of gender, masculinity and automobility in reproducing or subverting such particularly risky performances of identity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Social and Emotional Characteristics of Speech-based In-Vehicle Information Systems : Impact on Attitude and Driving Behaviour

    Author : Ing-Marie Jonsson; Nils Dahlbäck; Johan Åberg; Olle Eriksson; Håkan Alm; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bilkörning; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Modern vehicles use advanced information systems in vehicles to provide and control a wide variety of functions and features. Even modest vehicles today are equipped with systems that control diverse functions from air-conditioning to high quality audio/video systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Aggregation of Plug-in Electric Vehicles in Power Systems for Primary Frequency Control

    Author : Seyedmahdi Izadkhast; Mehrdad Ghandhari; Garcia-Gonzalez Pablo; Frias Pablo; Ignacio Egido Cortés; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Aggregation; Plug-in Electric Vehicles; Primary Frequency Control; Aggregeren; Plug-in Elektrische Voertuigen; Primaire Reserve; Laddbara Bilar; Elnätet; Primär Frekvensreglering; Agregación; Vehículos Eléctricos Enchufables PEVs ; Control Primario de Frecuencia PFC ; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The number of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) is likely to increase in the near future and these vehicles will probably be connected to the electric grid most of the day time. PEVs are interesting options to provide a wide variety of services such as primary frequency control (PFC), because they are able to quickly control their active power using electronic power converters.

  4. 4. Anionic Graft Copolymers with Poly(ethylene oxide) Side-Chains; Synthesis, Solution Properties and Ion Conduction

    Author : Helene Dérand; Centrum för analys och syntes; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; dieletric properites; ion conduction; solution properties; aggregation; amphiphilic polymers; poly ethylene oxide ; preparation; grafting; Polymer technology; biopolymers; Polymerteknik;

    Abstract : The research underlaying this thesis involves synthesis and characterization of well-defined anionic graft copolymers carrying poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) side-chains. Two different grafting techniques were used. Backbone polymers were prepared through radical terpolymerization of maleic anhydride, styrene and an additional comonomer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Study and Development of Techniques to Improve Engine Stability and Reduce Emissions from Natural Gas Engines

    Author : Patrik Einewall; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; framdrivningssystem; Motorer; Motors and propulsion systems; Low Emissions ; Natural Gas Engines ; EGR ;

    Abstract : The objective of this thesis was to find ways to improve combustion and reduce emissions from supercharged natural gas engines. In-cylinder flow measurements were made with laser doppler velocimetry, LDV, heat release was calculated from cylinder pressures and emissions were measured at various locations. READ MORE
