    University dissertation from Department of Energy Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Sam Shamun; [2019-01-25]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Methanol; Ethanol; Oxygenated Fuel Blends; Compression Ignition Engine; Partially Premixed Combustion; Combustion Characteristics; Efficiency; Emissions; Particulate Matter; Metanol; Etanl; Oxygenerade Bränsleblandningar; Kompressionsantänd Motor; Partiellt Förblandad Förbränning; Förbränningsegenskaper; Verkningsgrad; Emissioner; Partiklar;

    Abstract : Alternative fuels for combustion engines are becoming increasingly popular as society is pushing to phase out fossil energy to reduce CO2 emissions. The compression ignition (CI) engine has a high overall efficiency which makes it a valuable option for the transport fleet, despite the well known NOx and soot pollutants it emits. READ MORE

  2. 2. Histopathological and genetic aspects of colorectal cancer

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Laboratory Medicine

  3. 3. Seepage monitoring in embankment dams

    University dissertation from Institutionen för anläggning och miljö

    Author : Sam Johansson; KTH.; [1997]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Internal erosion, which is one of the major reasons forembankment dam failure, causes an increased seepage flow due toloss of fines. A seepage measuring system is therefore a vitalpart of an embankment dam’s monitoring system. Manyexisting seepage monitoring systems are not however sensitiveenough to detect small changes in the seepage flow. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on platelet function and microvesicles in acute coronary syndrome

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Clinical Sciences, Danderyd Hospital

    Author : Sam Kafian; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : INTRODUCTION: The cornerstone of treatment of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) and dual antiplatelet therapy (DAT) with aspirin and the ADP-receptor inhibitor clopidogrel. However, some ACS patients will suffer from recurrent cardiovascular events, and it has been shown that this may partly be due to an insufficient antiplatelet response to DAT. READ MORE
