  1. 1. Adding usability : Methods for modelling, user interface design and evaluation

    Author : Magnus Lif; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; Modelling; analysis; design; evaluation; user interface; human computer interaction; system development; usability; utility; methods; workspace; iterative; designer; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; datavetenskap med inriktning människa-datorinteraktion; Computer Science; human-computer interaction;

    Abstract : Many system development projects fail to provide information systems with high usability. This thesis focuses on how to solve this problem by introducing methods for modelling, user interface design and evaluation. These methods are primarily designed to serve as complements to existing methods for systems development. READ MORE

  2. 2. Designing dynamic textile patterns

    Author : Linda Worbin; Högskolan i Borås; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; smart textiles; textile design; dynamic textile patterns; designing dynamic textile patterns;

    Abstract : Designing Dynamic Textile Patterns Progress in chemistry, fibres and polymers technology provides textile designers with new expressive materials, making it possible to design dynamic textile patterns, where several different expressions are inherent in the same textile, textiles that, for example, could alternate between a striped and checkered pattern. Textiles are traditionally designed and produced to keep a given, static expression during their life cycle; a striped pattern is supposed to keep its stripes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling and simulation of the roll forming process

    Author : Michael Lindgren; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material Mechanics; Materialmekanik;

    Abstract : One of the first decisions to make when a new roll forming line is designed is the number of forming steps needed to produce a profile. This is dependent on the material properties, the cross-section geometry and the tolerance requirements. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental and computational investigation of the roll forming process

    Author : Michael Lindgren; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Material Mechanics; Materialmekanik;

    Abstract : One of the first questions to consider when designing a new roll forming line is the number of forming steps required to produce a profile. The number depends on material properties, the cross-section geometry and tolerance requirements, but the tool designer also wants to minimize the number of forming steps in order to reduce the investment costs for the customer.

  5. 5. A Theoretical Treatise on the Electronic Structure of Designer Hard Materials

    Author : Håkan Wilhelm Hugosson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; electronic structure; density functional theory; transition metal carbides; transition metal oxides; hard materials; designer materials; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : The subject of the present thesis is theoretical first principles electronic structure calculations on designer hard materials such as the transition metal carbides and oxides. The theoretical investigations have been made in close collaboration with experimental research and have addressed both bulk electronic properties and surface electronic properties of the materials.
