  1. 1. Macroscopic Volume and Free Volume of Polymer Blends and Pressure-densified Polymers

    Author : Marcus Schmidt; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; free-volume theories; refractive index; Lorentz-Lorenz equation; loss tangent; Avrami equation; freezing fractions; copolymers; polymer blends; pressure dilatometry; Tait equation of state; free-volume distributions; pressure-densified polymers; entropy of melting; dynamic-mechanical analysis; positronium; positron annihilation; free volume; cavity size; polymers; bulk modulus; PVT; phase separation; compressibility; thermal expansivity;

    Abstract : The macroscopic volume V as a function of pressure P and temperature T is obtained from PVT measurements. PVT data is sensitive to the state of polymers and changes therein. Moreover, PVT data gives access to the free-volume fraction. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of Human Brain MRI Contributions to Regional Volume Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Richard Nordenskjöld; Joel Kullberg; Elna-Marie Larsson; Lars Johansson; Håkan Ahlström; Göran Starck; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MRI; Brain; Volume; Hemisphere; Intracranial volume; Image analysis; Computerized Image Analysis; Datoriserad bildanalys;

    Abstract : Many disorders are associated with regional brain volumes. The analysis of these volumes from MR images often requires sequential processing steps such as localization and delineation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Efficient Medical Volume Visualization An Approach Based on Domain Knowledge

    University dissertation from Institutionen för teknik och naturvetenskap
