  1. 1. Tacit : A research journey into the methods, processes and knowledge of graphic designers

    Author : Halldór Björn Halldórsson; Åsa Wikberg-Nilsson; Anders Warell; Johanna Lewengard; Sofie Beier; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : By exploring the potential effects of digitisation on graphic design methods, this thesis aims to highlight some of the tacit knowledge possessed by graphic designers and to show that this knowledge can both be externalised and made communicable. Beginning with an interview study where professional designers’ views were gathered and analysed, the work continued through a participatory study where designers’ knowledge was highlighted in a documented design project.

  2. 2. Designing for Peer Learning : Mathematics, Games and Peer Groups in Leisure-time Centers

    Author : Åsa Harvard Maare; Sune Vork Steffensen; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; Leisure-time centers; mathematics; embodied interaction; design research; motivation; observational learning; Leisure-time centers;

    Abstract : Constrained by national tests and the mathematics curriculum, teachers have problems finding time for exploratory and hands-on mathematical activities, especially so in classes with a reduced pace of progression, for example because of a large proportion of second-language learners. Could the leisure-time center, where time is not earmarked, provide such opportunities? The conclusion of this thesis is that this can be done, on the condition that designed activities build on the central premise of the leisure-time center: children have the right to choose which activities to engage with.

  3. 3. Computational Methods in Conceptual Structural Design

    Author : Vedad Alic; Byggnadsmekanik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; conceptual design; conceptual structural design; ground-borne vibrations; form finding; optimization; dynamic relaxation; graphic statics; reciprocal figures; strut-and-tie; finite element method; isogeometric analysis; NURBS; CAD; numerical modelling;

    Abstract : Conceptual design is the first phase in the design process in which all the requirements and design objectives are synthesized into conceptual alternatives. In practice today, major decisions regarding the buildings function, massing, and overall form are usually made during the first phase. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developing tools for sustainability management in the graphic arts industry

    Abstract : The main aim of this thesis is to develop and test industry-specific, applied work procedures and tools for environmental and emerging sustainability work in the graphic arts industry. This includes methods to quantify, follow-up, evaluate, manage, improve and communicate the environmental performance of activities in the graphic arts supply chain and printed products. READ MORE

  5. 5. Graphic Representation and Visualisation as Modelling Support for the Knowledge Acquisition Process

    Author : Anne Håkansson; Andreas Hamfelt; Harald Kjellin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datavetenskap; Artficial Intelligence; Knowledge-Based Systems; Knowledge Acquisition; Graphic Representation; Visualisation; Unified Modelling Language; Modelling Rule-based Systems; Visual programming; Declarative Programming; Information Networks; User-Centered Design; Knowledge Interface; Datavetenskap; Computer science; Datavetenskap; datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : The thesis describes steps taken towards using graphic representation and visual modelling support for the knowledge acquisition process in knowledge-based systems – a process commonly regarded as difficult. The performance of the systems depends on the quality of the embedded knowledge, which makes the knowledge acquisition phase particularly significant. READ MORE
