  1. 1. Urban drainage and climate change impact assessment

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Karolina Berggren; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007), the global mean temperature has increased by 0,7 °C during the last 100 years and, as a consequence, the hydrological cycle has intensified with, for example, more intense rainfall events. As urban drainage systems have been developed over a long period of time and design criteria are based upon climatic characteristics, these changes will affect the systems and the city accordingly.

  2. 2. Performance assessment of wastewater treatment plants : multi-objective analysis using plant-wide models

    University dissertation from Lund, Sweden : Lund University

    Author : Magnus Arnell; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; benchmarking; BSM; codigestion; energy efficiency; greenhouse gases; life cycle assessment; mathematical modelling;

    Abstract : As the knowledge about anthropogenic impacts of climate change has grown, the awareness of the contributions from treatment of wastewater has widened the scope for wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Not only shall ever stricter effluent constraints be met, but also energy efficiency be increased, greenhouse gases mitigated and resources recovered. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessment of crosswind performance of buses

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Magnus Juhlin; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; crosswind; buses; steering feel; directional stability; subjective; objective; aerodynamic load; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Vehicle engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : When driving a vehicle on the road, the driver has to compensate continuously for small directional deviations from the desired course due to disturbances such as crosswinds, road irregularities and unintended driver inputs. These types of deviations have a tiring effect on the driver and should therefore be minimised. READ MORE

  4. 4. Transparency within REACH? Regulatory risk assessment of industrial chemicals

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Environmental Science and Analytical Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Ellen Ingre-Khans; Stockholms universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; REACH; chemicals legislation; risk assessment; hazard assessment; transparency; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Chemicals provide us with many benefits but can also have adverse effects on human health and the environment. Concerns that previous European legislations were not providing adequate protection from chemical risks resulted in a new chemicals legislation – REACH – in 2007. READ MORE

  5. 5. Response Time as Self-Schema Indicator Implications for Personality Assessment

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lars-Erik Hedlund; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Self-schema; response time; inverted-U effect; heritability; personality assessment; curvilinearity; personality trait; five factor model; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : The focal objective of this thesis was to examine the potential advantage of introducing the self-schema concept, indexed by response time, into personality assessment. The basic rationale for the use of response time is that a self-schema facilitates response time for self-referent information as it permits people to make assessments easier and automatic. READ MORE
