  1. 1. Calculating long-term settlement in soft clays - with special focus on the Gothenburg region

    Author : Mats Olsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soft clay; long-term settlement; creep; test sites;

    Abstract : Long-term settlement in clay constitutes an engineering challenge in road design and construction in areas with deep deposits of soft clay. Soil improvement and construction of building foundations or embankments can be quite complicated and expensive in such areas. Construction costs need to be balanced against high maintenance costs.

  2. 2. System Aspects and Modulation Strategies of an HVDC-based Converter System for Wind Farms

    Author : Stephan Meier; Hans-Peter Nee; Boon-Teck Ooi; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Isolated AC DC Converter; Mutual Commutation; Soft Switching; Voltage Source Converter; Cycloconverter; Modulation Strategies; Medium-Frequency Transformer; HVDC Transmission; Wind Power; Wind Farms; Electric power engineering; Elkraftteknik; Electrical engineering; Elektroteknik;

    Abstract :   In this thesis, a new HVDC-based converter system for wind farms is investigated. It is based on a mutually commutated soft-switching converter system and provides a unique integrated solution for the wind turbine generator drive systems, the wind turbine interconnection, and the power conversion for HVDC transmission.

  3. 3. Risk Estimation of Groundwater Drawdown in Subsidence Sensitive Areas

    Author : Jonas Sundell; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; uncertainty quantification; urban hydrogeology; pore pressure reduction; subsidence; geostatistics; groundwater leakage; soft soil; groundwater drawdown; spatial variability; settlement; probabilistic; risk assessment;

    Abstract : Groundwater drawdown induced ground subsidence is a severe problem in many regions around the world. Leakage of groundwater into a sub-surface construction, resulting in drawdown and subsequent subsidence, can lead to immense damage costs on buildings and installations in urban areas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quasi Resonant DC Link Converters - Analysis and Design for a battery Charger Application

    Author : Per Karlsson; Industriell elektroteknik och automation; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; quasi resonant DC link converter; soft switching; converter efficiency; IGBT; battery charger;

    Abstract : Environmental aspects have during the last years made electric vehicles an interesting competitor to the present internal combustion engine driven vehicles. For a broad introduction of pure electric vehicles, a battery charging infrastructure is deemed necessary. However, to build and maintain such an infrastructure is costly. READ MORE

  5. 5. Early Treatment of Class II Malocclusion With Excessive Overjet : evaluating oral health-related quality of life, randomised controlled trials on headgear activator treatment and costs

    Author : Jenny Kallunki; Liselotte Paulsson; Lars Bondemark; Frank Weiland; Malmö universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Orthodontics; Malocclusion; Class II; Oral health-related quality of life; cost analysis; Hälsa och samhälle; Health and society;

    Abstract : Class II malocclusion with excessive overjet is one of the most common malocclusions among children and adolescents. In addition to increasing the risk for dental trauma, the malocclusion can also be related to bullying due to the prominent maxillary incisors. READ MORE
