  2. 2. Cutting Edge Titanium-based CVD Hard Coatings

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Linus von Fieandt; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; CVD; Hard coatings; Ti C; N ; TiN;

    Abstract : Modern tools for metal cutting applications, such as turning or milling, are typically improved with a thin protective coating. Despite being only a few microns thick, the coating can increase the lifetime of the tool by more than 100 times compared to an uncoated tool. Two different types of techniques are normally used to deposit the coatings, i. READ MORE

  3. 3. Environmental, Resource and Health Impacts of Hard Materials

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Anna Furberg; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MFA; life cycle assessment; material flow analysis; cemented carbide; disability-adjusted life years; LCA; DALY; hard metal; tire stud;

    Abstract : The importance of hard materials for society is illustrated by the fact that entire historical time periods have been named after the predominant hard material used at that time. In the latest century, the introduction of the hard material cemented tungsten carbide with cobalt (WC-Co) has contributed to the economic growth we have seen and this material is crucial for the manufacturing industry of today.

  4. 4. Design fires in underground hard rock mines

    University dissertation from Västerås : Mälardalen University

    Author : Rickard Hansen; Mälardalens högskola.; [2011]
    Keywords : Design fire; underground; hard rock mine; vehicle fire; smoke spread; Energy- and Environmental Engineering; energi- och miljöteknik;

    Abstract : During several decades considerable research activities have been conducted with respect to fires in coal mines, but the research activities with respect to hard rock mines have been limited. As the hard rock mines are getting more complex the need for deeper understanding of fires in underground hard rock mines are getting more in demand. READ MORE

  5. 5. Algorithmic Bounds for Presumably Hard Combinatorial Problems

    University dissertation from Datavetenskap LTH

    Author : Andreas Björklund; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; numerisk analys; system; control; Datalogi; numerical analysis; systems; Computer science; Approximation algorithms; Exact algorithms; NP-hard problems; Algorithm theory; kontroll;

    Abstract : In this thesis we present new worst case computational bounds on algorithms for some of the most well-known NP-complete and #P-complete problems and their optimization variants. We consider graph problems like Longest Path, Maximum Cut, Number of Perfect Matchings, Chromatic and Domatic Number, as well as Maximum k-Satisfiability and Set Cover. READ MORE
