  2. 2. Rail Corrugation Growth on Curves

    Author : Peter Torstensson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : short-pitch rail corrugation; rotating flexible wheelset model; small radius curves; prediction of long-term roughness growth; plastic deformation; non-Hertzian and non-steady wheel‒rail contact; wear; rutting corrugation;

    Abstract : The development of periodic irregularities with distinct wavelengths (corrugation) on the low rail of small radius curves is studied through mathematical modelling, numerical simulations, field measurements and laboratory investigations. One year of monitoring of roughness on the low rail of a 120 m radius curve on the metro of Stockholm Public Transport (SL) showed severe growth of rail corrugation with wavelengths of about 5 cm and 8 cm.

  3. 3. Rail Corrugation Growth on Curves

    Author : Peter Torstensson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; simulation; track and wheelset structural flexibility; small radius curves; short-pitch rail corrugation; dynamic vehicle–track interaction; test rig and field measurements; wear;

    Abstract : Short-pitch rail corrugation that may develop on the low (inner) rail on small radius curves causes increased noise and vibration levels on railway networks worldwide. In lack of a generally applicable treatment, track authorities are forced to run expensive rail grinding programs on a regular basis to manage these problems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Symphysis Fundus Measurements for Detection of Intrauterine Growth Retardation

    Author : Eva Bergman; Ove Axelsson; Helle Kieler; Max Petzold; Reynir Tomas Geirsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : symphysis-fundus measurements; small for gestational age; intrauterine growth retardation; fetal growth; self-administered; relative growth; screening method; statistical surveillance; fetal surveillance;

    Abstract : A case-control study was performed to evaluate the Swedish population-based symphysis fundus (SF) reference curves. The study included 242 small for gestational age (SGA) neonates (169 term and 73 preterm infants) as cases and 296 non-SGA infants as controls. Two Swedish SF curves were evaluated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Natural resources and sustainable energy : Growth rates and resource flows for low-carbon systems

    Author : Simon Davidsson; Mikael Höök; Gert Jan Kramer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; low-carbon technology; renewable energy; energy transitions; critical materials; energy metals; material flows; net energy; EROI; life cycle assessment; LCA; growth curves; curve fitting; resource depletion; Natural Resources and Sustainable Development; Naturresurser och hållbar utveckling;

    Abstract : Large-scale deployment of low-carbon energy technologies is important for counteracting anthropogenic climate change and achieving universal energy access. This thesis explores potential growth rates of technologies necessary to reach a more sustainable global energy system, the material and energy flows required to commission these technologies, and potential future availability of the required resources.
