  1. 1. Numerical Accident Reconstructions A Biomechanical Tool to Understand and Prevent Head Injuries

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Madelen Fahlstedt; KTH.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Head injuries; Accident Reconstruction; Finite element analysis; Injury prevention; Helmet; Cyclist; Pedestrian; Epidemiology; Applied Medical Technology; Tillämpad medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are a major health and socioeconomic problem throughout the world, with an estimated 10 million deaths and instances of hospitalization annually. Numerical methods such as finite element (FE) methods can be used to study head injuries and optimize the protection, which can lead to a decrease in the number of injuries. READ MORE

  2. 2. Holocene Climate in Central and Southern Sweden Quantitative Reconstructions from Fossil Data

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Karin Antonsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Quaternary geology; pollen analysis; climate reconstructions; transfer functions; vegetation dynamics; Sweden; Kvartärgeologi;

    Abstract : In quantitative palaeoecology modern species-environmental relationships can be statistically modelled, and recent development has made the calibration models more statistically robust. These models are used to transform fossil assemblages to quantitative estimates of past environmental conditions. READ MORE
