  1. 1. Orsaker till fel i byggandet: en studie om felorsaker, felkonsekvenser, samt hinder för inlärning i byggprojekt

    Author : Per-Erik Josephson; [1994]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; consequences of defects; causes of defects; organisational behaviour; organisational learning; building project; quality; temporary organisations; defects; costs of defects;

    Abstract : One means of increasing the effectiveness of building is minimisation of the numbers of de-fects and their consequences. In order to accomplish this, it is necessary to have knowledge of why defects occur, of their consequences, and of how to learn from errors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Consequences of Poor Housing Essays on Urban and Health Economics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Department of Economics, Uppsala University

    Author : Fredrik Hansson; Matz Dahlberg; Che-Yuan Liang; Aline Bütikofer; [2020]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Urban; health; education; in utero; pollution; radiation; uranium; radon; housing prices; happiness; well-being; urbanization; growth; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : Essay I: Research shows that low fetal doses of radiation from nuclear catastrophes and atmospheric test bombings of nuclear weapons cause cognitive birth defects. These events are uncommon and the radioactive isotopes they create rarely reach harmful levels in nature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Characterization of chromosome abnormalities

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Anna Lindstrand; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2010]

    Abstract : Inborn chromosome abnormalities are a frequent cause of mental retardation and birth defects. Apart from aberrations that are visible in the microscope, a number of submicroscopic alterations have recently been discovered, and all of these chromosome changes are in fact the result of DNA alterations at the molecular level.

  4. 4. Genetic studies of skin barrier defects with focus on atopic dermatitis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Mårten Winge; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]

    Abstract : Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common, complex inflammatory skin disorder where a defect skin barrier is central in the pathogenesis. Mutations in the filaggrin gene cause ichthyosis vulgaris (IV). IV is one of several keratinization disorders named ichthyoses where mutations in skin barrier genes are a common underlying genetic factor. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Matter of Disorder Monte Carlo Simulations of Phase Transitions in Strongly Disordered Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Marios Nikolaou; Mats Wallin; Asle Sudbø; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phase transitions; disorder; Monte Carlo simulations; superconductivity; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Other physics Statistical physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Övrig fysik Statistisk fysik;

    Abstract : Phase transitions and their critical scaling properties, especially in systems with disorder, are important both for our theoretical understanding of our environment, but also for their practical use in applications and materials in our everyday life. This thesis presents results from finite size scaling analysis of critical phenomena in systems with disorder, using high-precision Monte Carlo simulations and state of the art numerical methods.
