  1. 1. High-Capacity Cool Thermal Energy Storage for Peak Shaving - a Solution for Energy Challenges in the 21st century

    Author : Bo He; KTH; []
    Keywords : Comfort cooling; peak shaving; phase change materials PCM ; cool thermal energy storage; DSC; phase change temperature; the heat of fusion; phase equilibrium; phase diagram.;

    Abstract : Due to climatic change, increasing thermal loads inbuildings and rising living standards, comfort cooling inbuildings is becoming increasingly important and the demand forcomfort cooling is expanding very quickly around the world. Theincreased cooling demand results in a peak in electrical powerdemand during the hottest summer hours. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modeling and Optimization of Reversed-Phase Chromatography : Effects of Modulators and Temperature

    Author : Karolina Arkell; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Reversed-phase chromatography; Hydrophobic interaction chromatography; Mechanistic modeling; INSULIN; KCl; Ethanol; Temperature; Multi-objective optimization; Constraint; Solubility;

    Abstract : Many widespread diseases, such as diabetes, various types of cancer, and aggressive versions of influenza, are treated or prevented with biopharmaceuticals. Biopharmaceuticals are drugs that are based on proteins, peptides, antibodies, attenuated viruses (vaccines), and other biomolecules that are synthesized predominately in bacteria, yeast, and mammalian cells.

  3. 3. Bacterial and fungal growth in soil: The effect of temperature and substrate addition

    Author : Stephanie Reischke; MEMEG; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bacterial growth; Fungal growth; Respiration; Carbon loading; Glucose mineralisation; Temperature adaptation; Temperature sensitivity; Temperature dependence;

    Abstract : Bacteria and fungi are the main agents in decomposition of soil organic matter. Their activity is determined by the availability and quality of substrate, especially its content of carbon, but also nitrogen and phosphorus. Other environmental factors, which affect the activity of the microbial community in soil, are temperature, moisture and pH. READ MORE

  4. 4. First-Principles Studies of Materials Properties : Pressure-Induced Phase Transitions & Functional Materials

    Author : Thanayut Kaewmaraya; Rajeev Ahuja; Scheicher Ralph; Naurang Saini; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Density functional theory; Pressure-induced phase transitions; Ab-initio molecular dynamic; hybrid functional; Ab-initio random structure searching; Phase change material; Physics with spec. in Atomic; Molecular and Condensed Matter Physics; Fysik med inriktning mot atom- molekyl- och kondenserande materiens fysik;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the first-principles studies of materials properties within the framework of the density functional theory (DFT). The thesis constitutes three main parts, i. e., pressure-induced phase transitions in solids, data-storage and clean-energy materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. Migration in anadromous brown trout

    Author : David Aldvén; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Downstream migration; Temperature; Discharge; Genetics; Growth rate; Climate change; Salmo trutta; Salmo salar; Sea trout; Salmon; Biology; Ecology;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the anadromous migration of brown trout (Salmo trutta) with the overall aim to improve stock management within the region. Several field studies were conducted in different streams and coastal areas on the west coast of Sweden specifically aimed to evaluate environmental triggers for migration (Paper I), migration pathways and strategies (Paper III and IV) as well as the genetic differentiation of anadromous populations of brown trout (Paper V).
