  2. 2. Sustainability and Flexural Behaviour of Textile Reinforced Concrete

    Author : Natalie Williams Portal; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Life Cycle Assessment LCA ; sustainability; Textile Reinforced Concrete; TRC; facade elements; flexural behaviour; non-linear finite element analyses; structural tests;

    Abstract : Concrete reinforced with conventional steel is one of the most commonly used building materials, yet it has historically shown disadvantages in terms of durability and vulnerability to corrosion attack. Various remedial methods have been applied to overcome the shortcomings of this building material, such as increasing the concrete cover, which, however, leads to an increased self-weight of the structure.

  3. 3. Usability of Textile Reinforced Concrete: Structural Performance, Durability and Sustainability

    Author : Natalie Williams Portal; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sustainability; life cycle assessment; experimental methods; finite element analysis; durability; Textile reinforced concrete;

    Abstract : Textile reinforced concrete (TRC) is an innovative high performance composite material consisting of open multi-axial textiles embedded in a fine-grained concrete matrix. Despite the fact that TRC-based research has revealed many promising attributes, it has yet to reach its recognition due to a lack of available design tools, standards and long-term behaviour.

  4. 4. Adaptive Supervision Online Learning for Vision Based Autonomous Systems

    Author : Kristoffer Öfjäll; Michael Felsberg; Kostas Daniilidis; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Driver assistance systems in modern cars now show clear steps towards autonomous driving and improvements are presented in a steady pace. The total number of sensors has also decreased from the vehicles of the initial DARPA challenge, more resembling a pile of sensors with a car underneath. READ MORE

  5. 5. Transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunt in the treatment of symptomatic portal hypertension

    Author : Kerstin Rosenqvist; Rickard Nyman; Charlotte Ebeling Barbier; Fredrik Rorsman; Lars-Gunnar Eriksson; Lars Lönn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Portal hypertension; TIPS; transjugular; portal venous thrombosis; mesenteric venous thrombosis; liver cirrhosis; interventional radiology; Radiology; Radiologi;

    Abstract : Portal hypertension (PHT) is a condition with serious complications, such as variceal bleeding, refractory ascites and bowel ischemia. The cause of PHT may be pre-, intra- or post-hepatic. Initial treatment is pressure-reducing drugs and the treatment of acute symptoms. READ MORE
