  1. 1. Microfluidics for High-Pressure Inertial Focusing : Focusing, Separation and Concentration of Micro and Sub-micron Particles

    Author : Javier Cruz; Klas Hjort; Aman Russom; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Microsystems; Microfluidics; Inertial Focusing; Particle Manipulation; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot mikrosystemteknik; Engineering Science with specialization in Microsystems Technology;

    Abstract : The birth of microsystems set the ground for technologies never imagined before, for it is not only the small size what characterizes the miniaturized systems, but unique phenomena arise in the micro scale. This thesis relates to one such unique phenomenon, inertial focusing, a phenomenon that occurs in microfluidic systems if very special conditions are met and that allows for fine manipulation of particles in fluid samples.

  2. 2. Wheelchair Passengers and Local Public Transport Vehicles: Perceptions of Safety and Comfort

    Author : Anders Wretstrand; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road transport technology; Public transport; Bus; STS; Perception; Comfort; Wheelchair users; Safety; Vägtransportteknik; Care and help to handicapped; Handikappade; vård och rehabilitering;

    Abstract : Eliciting wheelchair-seated passengers’ perspective of safety and comfort is both useful and mandatory, particularly for researchers, clinicians, transit authorities, and for operators during purchase and use of vehicle technologies in existing and planned future transport systems. Therefore, the overarching objective of this thesis was to delineate the question of safety and comfort as perceived by wheelchair-seated passengers using public transport road vehicles. READ MORE

  3. 3. Patient safety during intrahospital transports in intensive care. Hazards, experiences and future measurements

    Author : Lina Bergman; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ethnography; human factors engineering; intensive care; instrument development; intrahospital transport; nursing; patient safety; patient transfers; safety hazards;

    Abstract : Patient safety is an attribute of the healthcare system that minimizes the incidence of adverse events (AEs), and that entails identifying the causes of harm and preventive strategies. Intrahospital transport (IHT) of patients in intensive care is a process associated with AEs and patient complications. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Safety Potential and Effectiveness of Lane Departure Warning Systems in Passenger Cars

    Author : Simon Sternlund; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Lane support; LDW; Injury; Effectiveness; Lane departure; Safety; Lane keeping;

    Abstract : In the road transport system, crashes due to lane departure account for a large proportion of the most severe crashes that passenger car occupants are exposed to. While Electronic Stability Control (ESC) effectively prevents lane departure due to loss of control, lane departure due to unintentional drifting has not been addressed to the same extent. READ MORE

  5. 5. Safety Analysis of Systems-of-Systems

    Author : Stephan Baumgart; Joakim Fröberg; Sasikumar Punnekkat; Iain Bate; Mälardalens universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; System-of-Systems; Safety Analysis; Hazard Analysis; Model-based Development; Computer Science; datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Safety-critical systems may fail dangerously with severe consequences to the health of the involved humans, costly equipment, the environment, or other valuable assets of a stakeholder. For these classes of systems, the developers are obliged to analyze each potentially hazardous situation thoroughly. READ MORE
