  1. 1. Microfluidic Cell and Particle Sorting using Deterministic Lateral Displacement

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Stefan Holm; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2018-02-19]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Microfluidics; Separation science; Deterministic Lateral Displacement; Cell analysis; Deterministic lateral displacement; Microfluidics; Particle sorting; Droplet microfluidics; trypanosomiasis; red blood cell; Cell sorting;

    Abstract : Microfluidics is a field which has the potential to revolutionize medical diagnostics. The ability to sort and analyse cells by the use of portable handheld devices has the potential to enable sensitive devices for point-of-care diagnostics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Re-interventions after endovascular aortic repair: clinical and experimental studies

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Håkan Roos; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; EVAR; stent graft; blood flow; displacement forces; aortic aneurysm; angulation; reoperation;

    Abstract : Background: Endovascular aortic repair (EVAR) has lower morbidity and mortality than open surgery. Late complications and re-interventions are more common, however, and the timing of different re-interventions and their respective underlying causes are not fully understood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Distribution of Ventilation Air and Heat by Buoyancy Forces inside Buildings An Experimental Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Claes Blomqvist; Högskolan i Gävle.; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik; building ventilation; thermal forces; buoyancy; gravity currents; large openings; heating; air quality; forced convection; free convection;

    Abstract : The main task of the ventilation system in a building is to maintain the air quality and (together with the heating or cooling system) the thermal climate at an acceptable level within the building. This means that a sufficient amount of ventilation air at the appropriate temperature and quality must be supplied to satisfy thermal comfort and air quality demands and that this air is distributed to the parts of the building where people reside.

  4. 4. To leak or not to leak? Land‐Use Displacement and Carbon Leakage from Forest Conservation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Sabine Henders; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Climate change; land‐use change and deforestation; accounting methods; consumer and producer responsibility; REDD ; Klimatförändring; markanvändning och avskogning; redovisningsmetoder; konsument‐ och producentansvaret; REDD ;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the question how emissions from land‐use displacement can be assessed and accounted for, using the example of carbon‐leakage accounting in the planned UNFCCC mechanism on ‘Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation’ (REDD). REDD serves here as example of an international forest conservation policy that might be effective locally but could lead to displacement of deforestation to other countries. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Modelling of Fracture Using Strong Discontinuities

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Martin Fagerström; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fracture; strong discontinuity; material forces; finite deformations; FEM;

    Abstract : The major concern of this work is the constitutive and numerical modelling of fracture,based on strong discontinuity formulations. More particularly, an extended finiteelement approach is used, where the total displacement is separated in two mutuallyindependent fields, representing the continuous and discontinuous displacement respectively.
