  1. 1. Improving radioimmunotargeting of tumors : the impact of extracorporeal immunoadsorption and preload in rats

    Author : Michael Garkavij; Bröstcancer-genetik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cytology; preload.; immunoadsorption; MAb; rat; Tumor; radioimmunotargeting; oncology; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : In radioimmunotherapy of tumors, uptake of the monoclonal antibody (MAb) used is often too low in relation to its uptake in normal tissues. The purpose of these studies was to improve experimental tumor radioimmunotargeting with (a) extracorporeal immunoadsorption (ECIA), where excess of radiolabeled MAbs circulating in blood is removed, (b) or by preload with unlabeled MAb prior to injection of radiolabeled MAb, (c) or by a combination of these.

  2. 2. Gearbox noise : Correlation with transmission error and influence of bearing preload

    Author : Mats Åkerblom; Sören Andersson; D. Houser; KTH; []
    Keywords : gear; gearbox; noise; vibration; transmission error; bearing preload; Mechanical engineering; Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : The five appended papers all deal with gearbox noise and vibration. The first paper presents a review of previously published literature on gearbox noise and vibration. The second paper describes a test rig that was specially designed and built for noise testing of gears. READ MORE

  3. 3. Strain echocardiography in cardiac surgery - studies on the effects of loading conditions and inotropic agents on myocardial contraction and relaxation

    Author : Martin Fredholm; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; strain echocardiography; right heart catheterization; cardiac surgery; heart failure; levosimendan; milrinone; left ventricular function; right ventricular function; systole; diastole; preload; afterload; pacing; longitudinal function; ventricular dimensions; ventricular interdependence;

    Abstract : Background: Although reductions in myocardial contractility and relaxation are key compo-nents in heart failure (HF), assessment of them is difficult, as clinical measurements deal with a net effect of myocardial contractility, heart filling (preload), outflow impedance (afterload) and heart rate (HR). Echocardiographic (echo) deformation parameters, like strain (myocardial shortening) and strain rate (the speed of deformation, SR), have been proposed to more accu-rately measure myocardial function, but incongruent previous studies have raised concerns that they may be load-dependent.

  4. 4. Effective vibro-acoustical modelling of rubber isolators

    Author : Michael Coja; Leif Kari; Wolfgang Kropp; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Applied mechanics; Rubber isolator; Bush mounting; Dynamic stiffness; Waveguide; Fractional derivatives; Mode-matching; Pre-compressed; Prestrain; Preload; Predeformation; Viscoelasticity; Dispersion; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : This thesis, gathering four papers, concerns the enhancement in understanding and modelling of the audible dynamic stiffness of vibration rubber isolators including experimental measurements. Paper A studies the performances of three different types of vibration isolator using an indirect measurement technique to estimate the blocked dynamic transfer stiffness of each specimen. READ MORE

  5. 5. Torque and Angle Controlled Tightening of Bolted Joints

    Author : Göran Toth; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; torque controlled tightening; deformation parameters; momentary elongation; deformation factor; torque; Bolted screwed joints; spring characteristic; Torx; torque and angle controlled tightening; hexalobular; final torque; snug torque; Taylor’s series expansions; preload; plastic deformation; permanent elongation; yield; friction diameter; plastic spring constant; clevis; turn-of-nut method; bearing surface pressure; twisting; Monte-Carlo simulations;

    Abstract : Reduced weight and fuel consumption, improved reliability and engine performance are the main requirements in the automotive industry of today. These requirements demand robust and optimized bolted joints, where a high amount of preload obtained by effective utilisation of the bolt is essential. READ MORE
