  1. 1. Modeling and Simulation of Physical Systems in a Mechatronic Context

    Author : Carl-Johan Sjöstedt; Martin Törngren; Hans Vangheluwe; KTH; []
    Keywords : mechatronics; MATLAB Simulink; SysML; bond graphs; Modelica; Simscape; simulation; modeling; EAST-ADL2; physical modeling; Mechanical engineering; Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis gives different views on the modeling and simulation of physical systems, especially together with embedded systems, forming mechatronic systems. The main considered application domain is automotive. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modeling Oil Exploration and Production : Resource-Constrained and Agent-Based Approaches

    Author : Kristofer Jakobsson; Kjell Aleklett; Rob Hart; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Oil production; forecasting; modeling; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik; Engineering Science with specialization in the Science of Global Energy Resources; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot globala energiresurser;

    Abstract : Energy is essential to the functioning of society, and oil is the single largest commercial energy source. Some analysts have concluded that the peak in oil production is soon about to happen on the global scale, while others disagree. READ MORE

  3. 3. Industrial Ecology Approaches to Improve Metal Management : Three Modeling Experiments

    Author : Rajib Sinha; Björn Frostell; Maria Malmström; Amir Rashid; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; system dynamics; element flow analysis; industrial ecology; product systems; end-of-life; DPSIR; pressure-based driver-oriented approach; environmental management; Industrial Ecology; Industriell ekologi;

    Abstract : A linear model of consumption − produce-use-dispose − has constantly increased the pressure on the environment in recent decades. There has been a great belief that technology will solve the problem, but in many cases it is only partly contributing to the solution. For a full solution, the root causes of problems need to be identified. READ MORE

  4. 4. Phonemic awareness and learning to read : a longitudinal and quasi-experimental study

    Author : Åke Olofsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Phonemic Awareness; Phonemic Awareness Training; Reading Acquisition; Causal Modeling; Reading Readiness; Metaphonology;

    Abstract : Phonemic awareness is the ability to attend to the formal, phonetic or phonemic, aspects of spoken language. Skill in analysis of speech sounds and synthesis of phonetic segments into real words has often been found to correlate with success in reading acquisition. READ MORE

  5. 5. Switched Bond Graphs : Simulation and Analysis

    Author : Krister Edström; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bond graphs; Hybrid systems; Modeling; Simulation; Causality; Discontinuities;

    Abstract : In this thesis an approach to modeling and simulation of mode switching systems is investigated. This approach, switched bond graphs, is an extension of the bond graph language in the sense that it allows modeling of mode switching phenomena.The classical bond graph language as well as the switched bond graph language are presented.
