  1. 1. Longitudinal Force Distribution and Road Vehicle Handling

    Author : Matthijs Klomp; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ehicle dynamics; quasi steady-state; drive force; combined grip; longitudinal force distribution; combined slip; vehicle handling; optimization;

    Abstract : The distribution of longitudinal forces has a large influence on vehicle handling characteristics such as the driver/vehicle interaction, road holding and yaw stability, in particular during combined traction/braking and cornering near the grip limit of the tires. In order to select and develop suitable driveline systems and associated active control that provide consistent driver/vehicle handling, maximum road holding and sufficient yaw stability margins, it is essential to understand the influence of a particular drive force distribution on these handling characteristics.

  2. 2. On Drive Force Distribution and Road Vehicle Handling - A Study of Understeer and Lateral Grip

    Author : Matthijs Klomp; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : drive force distribution; drive force; vehicle handling; lateral grip; understeer; acceleration; steady-state cornering; vehicle dynamics; combined slip;

    Abstract : Computer controlled vehicle sub-systems aimed to support drivers in various drivingsituations are rapidly increasing in number and sophistication. These systemshave evolved from anti-lock braking and traction control systems, to electronic stabilitycontrol. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Load Distribution and Design of a Chain Drive

    Author : Ingvar Troedsson; Maskinelement; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; tension force; tensioner; oscillation; chain drive; vibration; load distribution; Mechanical engineering; hydraulics; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering; Maskinteknik; hydraulik; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik;

    Abstract : Three methods are presented to calculate the load distribution in a chain drive containing two sprockets and one chain. The rollers, which are in contact with the sprockets, can move along the tooth flanks and their positions are given by force equilibrium. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wood and fibre mechanics related to the thermomechanical pulping process

    Author : Jan-Erik Berg; Per Engstrand; Per A. Gradin; Tomas Björkqvist; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Acoustic emission; Chips; Compression tests; Defibration; Disc refiners; Energy consumption; Fibre structure; Force sensors; Fracture; Impact strength; Mathematical analysis; Moisture content; Picea abies; Refining; Stiffness degradation; Strains; Temperature; Thermomechanical pulping; Velocity; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The main objective of this thesis was to improve the understanding of some aspects on wood and fibre mechanics related to conditions in the thermomechanical pulping process. Another objective was to measure the power distribution between the rotating plates in a refiner. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sutures bridging nerve defects

    Author : Peter Scherman; Malmö Handkirurgi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; orthopaedics; traumatology; Surgery; continuous longitudinal sutures; nerve repair; nerve regeneration; nerve defect; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi;

    Abstract : A new and simple method for the repair of nerve defects, in which sutures alone are used to guide regeneration between the nerve endings, was developed. Bilateral seven to 17 mm rat sciatic nerve defects were bridged by continuous longitudinal sutures with or without different modifications, by conventional autologous nerve grafts or direct repair under tension as controls.
