  1. 1. Determination of equivalent hydraulic and mechanical properties of fractured rock masses using the distinct element method

    Author : Ki-Bok Min; KTH; []
    Keywords : equivalent continuum approach; equivalent property; representative elementary volume; distinct element method;

    Abstract : The equivalent continuum approach uses equivalent propertiesof rock mass as the input data for a continuum analysis. Thisis a common modeling method used in the field of rock mechanicsand hydrogeology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fractured Rock Masses as Equivalent Continua - A Numerical Study

    Author : Ki-Bok Min; KTH; []
    Keywords : fractured rock masses; equivalent continuum; discrete fracture Network DFN ; Distinct Element Method DEM ; Finite Element Method FEM ; Nuclear Waste Disposal; Coupled Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical Processes;

    Abstract : In this thesis, fractured rock masses are treated asequivalent continua for large-scale analyses of rockengineering projects. Systematic developments are made for thedetermination of equivalent mechanical and hydraulic propertiesof fractured rock masses using a hybrid discrete fracturenetwork - distinct element method (DFN-DEM) approach.

  3. 3. Genetic Analysis of Quantitative Traits Using Domestic Animals : A Candidate Gene and Genome Scanning Approach

    Author : Hee-Bok Park; Leif Andersson; Stefan Marklund; Robert Fredricksson; Holger Luthman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; Domestication; horse; pig; chicken; quantitative traits; candidate gene; genome scan; PRKAG3; MC4R; selection experiment; growth; correlated response; metabolic disorders; Quantitative Trait Loci; linkage; single nucleotide polymorphisms; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : Domestication has led to genetic changes that affect quantitative traits in farm animals. Both candidate gene analysis using association tests and genome scans based on linkage analysis have been performed to understand the molecular basis underlying quantitative genetic variation in horses, pigs and chickens.

  4. 4. Structural Uncertainties of Rock Fractures and their Effect on Flow and Tracer Transport

    Author : Martin Stigsson; Vladimir Cvetkovic; Ki-Bok Min; KTH; []
    Keywords : Fracture; Flow; Transport; Orientation uncertainty; Roughness; Self-affine; Fractal; Shear; Aperture distribution.; Land and Water Resources Engineering; Mark- och vattenteknik;

    Abstract : Att förstå flöde och transport av lösta ämnen genom sprickorna i berggrunden är viktigt för den långsiktiga säkerheten av ett geologiskt slutförvar av farligt avfall. I en diskret spricknätverksmodell byggs flödesvägarna upp av kedjor av flödesvägar genom de enskilda sprickorna i bergmassan. READ MORE

  5. 5. Communicating Place : Methods for Understanding Children's Experience of Place

    Author : Sofia Cele; Lia Karsten; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; children; place; interviews; photography; drawings; walks; communication; qualitative methods; Sweden; England; interactive; abstract; concrete; Human geography; Kulturgeografi;

    Abstract : This dissertation explores how children communicate their experiences of place. It focuses on the qualitative methods of group interviews, walks, drawings and photographs, and asks how children communicate different aspects of place. READ MORE
