    Abstract : Background: Acute hamstring strains are common injuries in different sports. They are often serious, causing long rehabilitation times and a proneness for re-injury. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effect of valve replacement for aortic stenosis on ventricular function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Ying Zhao; Umeå universitet.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aortic stenosis; aortic valve replacement; echocardiography; speckle tracking; exercise echocardiography; ventricular function; septal radial motion; twist; displacement; strain; strain rate;

    Abstract : Background:Aortic stenosis (AS) is the commonest valve disease in the West. Aortic valve replacement (AVR) remains the only available management for AS and results in improved symptoms and recovery of ventricular functions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of deep excavations in soft clay on the immediate sourroundings-Analysis of the possibility to predict deformations and reactions against the retaining system

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anders Kullingsjö; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MIT-S1; Sheet pile wall; Soil-structure interaction; Strain; Stress; Ground surface settlement; Finite element method; Case history; Shear test; Shear strength; Pore pressure; Analysis; Constitutive models; Plane strain; Elastoplasticity; Laboratory tests; Factor of safety; Stiffness; e-ADP; Earth pressure; Anisotropy; Soft Clay; Deep excavation; Retaining wall; Shear stress; Deformation;

    Abstract : When excavating in an urban environment, the evaluation of the magnitude and distribution of ground movements is an important part of the design process, since excessive movements can damage adjacent buildings and utilities. In order to minimize movement of the surrounding soil, a retaining wall support system is used for deep excavations to provide lateral support. READ MORE

  5. 5. Strain and Charge Transport in InAsP-InP and InP-InAs Core-Shell Nanowires

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : David Göransson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2019-04-29]
    Keywords : Nanowire; InAsP-InP core-shell nanowire; InP-InAs core-shell nanowire; strain; XRD; charge transport; Coulomb blockade; Josephson junction;

    Abstract : The mechanical, optical, and electrical properties of III-V semiconductor heterostructures are investigated in thisthesis. The semiconductor materials are grown by metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy, yielding wire shaped crystals(nanowires) having a length of ~ 1 μm and diameter of ~ 100 nm. READ MORE
