  1. 1. Preventing pressure ulcers by assessment of the microcirculation in tissue exposed to pressure

    Author : Sara Bergstrand; Margareta Lindgren; Anna-Christina Ek; Maria Engström; Lars-Göran Lindberg; Fredrik Huss; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pressure ulcer; photoplethysmography; laser Doppler flowmetry; non-invasive; tissue blood flow; reactive hyperemia; pressure-induced vasodilation; interface pressure; risk assessment;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to combine optical methods into a system with the ability to simultaneously measure blood flow changes at different tissue depths. The goal of such a system was to reveal vascular mechanisms relevant to pressure ulcer etiology under clinically relevant conditions and in relation to the evaluation of pressure-redistribution support surfaces.

  2. 2. Studies on sitting pressure and buttock microcirculation : aiming at developing an alarm in the prevention of pressure ulcers in patients with spinal cord injuries

    Author : Johan Thorfinn; Disa Lidman; Folke Sjöberg; Henry Svensson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Blood supply; Buttocks; Hyperemia; Ischemia; Laser-Doppler flowmetry; Microcirculation; Posture physiology; Pressure; Skin blood supply; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : Pressure ulcers in patients with spinal cord injuries are a major problem, the prevalence in this group being reported as high as 20 – 30 percent. Most pressure ulcers develop around the pelvic girdle, and the key-contributing factor in the development of pressure ulcers is ischaemia due to longstanding pressure. READ MORE

  3. 3. Self Assembly at the Liquid Air Interface

    Author : Niga Petru; Rutland Mark; Ye Shen; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; VSFS; SFG; interface; crown ethers; ethylene oxides; ionic liquids; fatty acids; domains.; Surface and colloid chemistry; Yt- och kolloidkemi;

    Abstract : The aim of this work is to study the interfacial properties of amphiphilic compounds at the liquid–air interface in an attempt to develop a comprehensive understanding of their orientation as well as the influence of their interaction with the solvent on the interfacial layer properties. Using Vibrational Sum Frequency Spectroscopy (VSFS) as the main tool, the molecular structure of the amphiphilic layer and the amphiphile–solvent relation can be illuminated in great detail – it is arguably the most sensitive surface spectroscopy currently available.

  4. 4. Impact of Metallic Projectiles on a Ceramic Target Surface : Transition Between Interface Defeat and Penetration

    Author : René Renström; Bengt Lundberg; Patrik Lundberg; Nils-Gunnar Ohlson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Engineering physics; Projectile; Cylindrical; Conical; Yield strength; Compressibility; Perfect flow; Self-similar flow; Interface defeat; Dwell; Teknisk fysik; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot hållfasthetslära; Engineering Science with specialization in Solid Mechanics;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to gain understanding of the load on flat target surfaces produced by projectile impact. Models are proposed from which upper and lower bounds can be derived for the transition be-tween interface defeat and normal penetration. READ MORE

  5. 5. A weighted correlation approach of the density functional theory for an inhomogeneous fluid at an interface

    Author : Zhao Wang; Longcheng Liu; Ivars Neretnieks; Małgorzata Borówko; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; inhomogeneous fluid; interface; density functional theory;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis presents a newly developed density functional theory (DFT), i.e., the weighted correlation approach (WCA), to study the structural and thermodynamic properties of an inhomogeneous fluid at an interface. READ MORE
