  1. 1. The Plasma Contact System : New Functional Insights from a Hemostatic and Thrombotic Perspective

    Author : Jennie Bäck; Bo Nilsson; Kristina Nilsson Ekdahl; Ulla Hedner; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Contact activation; factor XII; platelets; coagulation; antithrombin; C1 inhibitor; hemostasis; biomarkers; vascular disease.; Klinisk immunologi; Clinical Immunology;

    Abstract : The physiological role of the plasma contact system still remains a partial enigma. The aim of the presented work was to expand our understanding of the plasma contact system, focusing on its physiological activation and function, principally from a hemostatic perspective. It also explored contact system activation under pathological conditions. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wavelet Galerkin methods for elastic multibody systems with unilateral contact constraints

    Author : José Díaz López; Matematik LTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computer science; Elastic MBS; Contact; Unilateral Contraints; Wavelet; DAE; Daubechies; numerical analysis; systems; control; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll;

    Abstract : In this thesis we investigate the applicability of wavelets to simulate the time behavior of elastic multibody systems (MBS) with contact constraints. For this end, a wavelet element method (WEM) was implemented, exploiting the special structure of the coupled ODE/PDE equations that govern elastic MBS. READ MORE

  3. 3. Speciation and Metabolic rate : Insights from an avian hybrid zone

    Author : S. Eryn McFarlane; Anna Qvarnström; Jenny Boughman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; resting metabolic rate; life history; hybridization; speciation; reproductive isolation; Ficedula flycatcher; Biologi med inriktning mot zooekologi; Biology with specialization in Animal Ecology;

    Abstract : The role of divergent climate adaptation in speciation has received surprisingly little scientific attention. My dissertation research focused on how resting metabolic rate (RMR) relates to the build up of prezygotic and postzygotic isolation in a natural Ficedula flycatcher hybrid zone. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wheel-rail contact modelling in vehicle dynamics simulation

    Author : Matin Shahzamanian Sichani; Mats Berg; Roger Enblom; Elena Kabo; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wheel-rail contact; non-elliptic contact; vehicle-track interaction; rail vehicle dynamics; rolling contact; MBS; virtual penetration; Järnvägsgruppen - Fordonsteknik; Järnvägsgruppen - Fordonsteknik; Järnvägsgruppen - Tribologi; The KTH Railway Group - Tribology;

    Abstract : The wheel-rail contact is at the core of all research related to vehicle-track interaction. This tiny interface governs the dynamic performance of rail vehicles through the loads it transmits and, like any high stress concentration zone, it is subjected to serious damage phenomena.

  5. 5. Nasal administration of compounds active in the central nervous system : Exploring the olfactory system

    Author : Maria Dahlin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmacy; Nasal administration; olfactory pathway; cerebrospinal fluid; autoradiography; FARMACI; PHARMACY; FARMACI; farmaceutisk farmakologi; Pharmaceutical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : The nasal administration of drugs offers advantages over administration by intravenous injection. Drugs can be rapidly absorbed through the nasal mucosa, resulting in a rapid onset of action, and also avoiding degradation in the gastrointestinal tract and first-pass metabolism in the liver.
