  1. 1. Fatigue Assessment of Cast Components Influence of Cast Defects

    Author : Anders Björkblad; Jack Samuelsson; Gary Marquis; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cast nodular iron; fatigue; design rules; fracture mechanics; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Vehicle engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Farkostteknik;

    Abstract :  This thesis is on the fatigue assessment of cast components with special attention to defects. The primary material in view is nodular cast iron, but also cast steel is considered. However, the fatigue behaviour is in principle valid for general use on other cast metals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Illness perception and fatigue after myocardial infarction

    Author : Pia Alsén; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; anxiety; depression; fatigue; health-related quality of life; illness perception; myocardial infarction;

    Abstract : Treatment of myocardial infarction (MI) has undergone major advances in recent years, including reductions in mortality and hospital stays. To optimize patients’ recovery, secondary preventive strategies are important. However, many patients fail to attend to such programmes. READ MORE

  3. 3. On spinal mechanisms for reflex control in man : modulation of Ia-afferent excitation with changes in muscle length, activation level and fatigue

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

    Author : Maria M. Nordlund; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Electromyography; eccentric; concentric; presynaptic inhibition; H-reflex; central fatigue; twitch interpolation; muscle spindle; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : To control muscle force, neural activation has to take alterations in muscle mechanics into account. This thesis assesses modulations in excitatory efficacy of Ia-afferents during muscle length changes at different levels of voluntary activation and during fatigue. READ MORE

  4. 4. Physiology of Adventure Racing with emphasis on circulatory response and cardiac fatigue

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; cardiovascular drift; cardiac fatigue; adventure race; cardiac biomarkers; cardoac function; exercise echocardiography; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Cardiology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Kardiologi; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Sports; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Idrott; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : The overall aims of this thesis were to elucidate the circulatory responses to ultra-endurance exercise (Adventure Racing), and furthermore, to contribute to the clarification of the so called “exercise-induced cardiac fatigue” in relation to said exercise. An Adventure race (AR) varies in duration from six hours to over six days, in which the participants have to navigate through a number of check-points over a pre-set course, using a combination of three or more endurance/outdoor sports, e.

  5. 5. Mechanics-based Design Framework for Flexible Pavements

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska institutet

    Author : Yared H. Dinegdae; Björn Birgisson; David Newcomb; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mechanics-based; asphalt; fatigue; reliability; traffic; variability; Mekanik-baserade; utmattningssprickor; pålitlighet; lastbilstrafiken; variabilitet; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Load induced top-down fatigue cracking has been recognized recently as a major distress phenomenon in asphalt pavements. This paper presents a mechanics-based design framework in load and resistance factor design (LRFD) format for the top-down fatigue cracking performance evaluation of flexible pavements. READ MORE
