    Abstract : Decision‐makers in organisations and businesses make numerous decisions every day, and these decisions are expected to be based on facts and carried out in a rational manner. However, most decisions are not based on precise information or careful analysis due to several reasons. People are, e.g. READ MORE

  2. 2. Service life estimations in the design of a PCM based night cooling system

    Author : Göran Hed; Christer Sjöström; Andrew James Miller; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Building manufacturing engineering; Byggproduktionsteknik; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The use of Phase Change Material, PCM, to change the thermal inertia of lightweight buildings is investigated in the CRAFT project C-TIDE. It is a joint project with Italian and Swedish partners, representing both industry and research. PCMs are materials where the phase change enthalpy can be used for thermal storage. READ MORE

  3. 3. Exploring models of time processing : effects of training and modality, and the relationship with cognition in rhythmic motor tasks

    Author : Olympia Karampela; Guy Madison; Linus Holm; Fredrik Ullén; Simon Grondin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; timing; motor timing; cogntion; dedicated models; intrinsic models; timing variability;

    Abstract : Timing can be defined as the ability to perceive temporal sequences and regulate timed behaviors. As in other animals, our ability to make accurate time estimations is crucial in order to accomplish several activities. Organisms can process time over a wide range of durations ranging from microseconds to days. READ MORE

  4. 4. The diagnostic performance of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in early detection of prostate cancer : Considerations of sensitivity, specificity, lead-time and survival

    Author : Magnus Törnblom; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; PSA; free PSA; prostate cancer; sensitivity; specificity; lead-time; survival; epidemiology;

    Abstract : Background Prostate cancer (PC) is the most common form of cancer, as well as the single major cause of cancer-related mortality among Swedish males. Recent reports indicate that screening of the serum levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in asymptomatic men may result in decreases in both the incidence of metastatic disease and PC-specific mortality.

  5. 5. Heat Transfer and Hydrodynamics in Falling Film Evaporation of Black Liquor

    Author : Miriam Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; correlation; black liquor; turbulence; hydrodynamics; kraft pulp mill; falling film; Heat transfer; evaporation; experimental; evaporator;

    Abstract : The evaporation plant is one of the major steam consumers in kraft pulp mills, which are the dominant type of chemical pulp mill in Sweden. Previous studies have shown potential to decrease the live steam demand for the pulp process, e.g. READ MORE
