  1. 1. Drum sound from floor coverings - objective and subjective assessment

    University dissertation from Engineering Acoustics, LTH, Lund University

    Author : Ann-Charlotte Johansson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik; hydraulik; Maskinteknik; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering; hydraulics; acoustic standard; Mechanical engineering; tapping machine; veneer flooring; parquet flooring; binaural recording; foot impact; loudness; sound quality; listening test; paired comparisons; walking sound; drum sound; building acoustics; psychoacoustics; laminate flooring;

    Abstract : Drum sound is the sound produced when an object, such as a foot, hits the flooring in the room in which the receiving ear is located. Drum sound has attracted interest in recent years, particularly due to an increased use of thin floating floor constructions, such as veneer or laminate flooring, which can produce loud and sharp walking sound.

  3. 3. Networks and Epidemics Impact of Network Structure on Disease Transmission

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jenny Lennartsson; Uno Wennergren; Annie Jonsson; Meggan Craft; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The spread of infectious diseases, between animals as well as between humans, is a topic often in focus. Outbreaks of diseases like for example foot-and-mouth disease, avian influenza, and swine influenza have in the last decades led to an increasing interest in modelling of infectious diseases since such models can be used to elucidate disease transmission and to evaluate the impact of different control strategies.
