  1. 1. Failure Monitoring and Asset Condition Assessment in Water Supply Systems

    University dissertation from Department of Industrial Electrical Engineering and Automation, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Dalius Misiunas; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mechanical engineering; reglerteknik; robotteknik; Automatiska system; Water supply; failure; detection; monitoring; location; bursts; hydraulics; leakage; asset management; condition assessment; pipelines; pipe networks; Automation; control engineering; robotics; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering; Maskinteknik; hydraulik; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, different aspects of failure management in urban water supply systems are discussed. As assets are getting older, the number of pipe failures is increasing and an efficient failure management strategy becomes important. READ MORE

  2. 2. Efficient Medical Volume Visualization An Approach Based on Domain Knowledge

    University dissertation from Institutionen för teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : Claes Lundström; Anders Ynnerman; Hans Knutsson; Dirk Bartz; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Scientific Visualization; Medical Imaging; Computer Graphics; Volume Rendering; Transfer Function; Level-of-detail; Fuzzy Classification; Uncertainty Visualization; Virtual Autopsies; TECHNOLOGY Other technology Medical engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper Medicinsk teknik;

    Abstract : Direct Volume Rendering (DVR) is a visualization technique that has proved to be a very powerful tool in many scientific visualization applications. Diagnostic medical imaging is one domain where DVR could provide clear benefits in terms of unprecedented possibilities for analysis of complex cases and highly efficient work flow for certain routine examinations.

  3. 3. Model-Based Optimization of Clinical Trial Designs

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Camille Vong; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; nonlinear mixed-effects models; pharmacometrics; likelihood ratio test; NONMEM; power; sample size; study design; proof-of-concept; dose-finding; population optimal design; LOQ; BQL data; neutropenia; docetaxel; myelosuppression; thrombocytopenia; MTD; Bayesian methods; 3 3 algorithm; dose escalation study; Pharmaceutical Science; Farmaceutisk vetenskap;

    Abstract : General attrition rates in drug development pipeline have been recognized as a necessity to shift gears towards new methodologies that allow earlier and correct decisions, and the optimal use of all information accrued throughout the process. The quantitative science of pharmacometrics using pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic models was identified as one of the strategies core to this renaissance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Processor Pipelines and Static Worst-Case Execution Time Analysis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jakob Engblom; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TECHNOLOGY Information technology; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik; Computer Systems; Datorteknik;

    Abstract : Worst-Case Execution Time (WCET) estimates for programs are necessary when building real-time systems. They are used to ensure timely responses from interrupts, to guarantee the throughput of cyclic tasks, as input to scheduling and schedule analysis algorithms, and in many other circumstances.
