  1. 1. Profitability Performance of Supermarkets : The effects of scale of operation, local market conditions, and conduct on the economic performance of supermarkets

    Author : Mikael Hernant; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Retailing; Store performance; Profitability; Economies of scale; Competition; Business and economics; Ekonomi; Humaniora-samhällsvetenskap; Humanities and Social sciences;

    Abstract : Ever since introduced and rolled out on the market during the 1950's and 1960's the supermarket format of grocery retail stores has played an important role in the grocery retail sector in Sweden, as well as in other countries. Although the sector in Sweden has evolved into a sector harbouring various store formats, the supermarket remains the major one - about half of the total volume of sales currently goes through supermarkets.

  2. 2. Rheocasting of aluminium alloys : Process and components characteristics

    Author : Mostafa Payandeh; Anders E. W. Jarfors; Magnus Wessén; Helen Atkinson; Jönköping University; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rheocasting; aluminium alloy; RheoMetal TM process; microstructural characteristics; component properties and performance; robust design process;

    Abstract : Semi-Solid Metal (SSM) casting is a promising technology offering an opportunity to manufacture net-shape, complex geometry metal components in a single operation. However, the absence of foundry guidelines and limited design data for SSM casting makes it challenging to predict the performance of both process and components. READ MORE

  4. 4. Early identification of motor problems in very preterm infants : An evaluation of the Structured Observation of Motor Performance in Infants

    Author : Cecilia Montgomery; Lena Hellström-Westas; Kristina Persson; Katarina Strand Brodd; Ann-Christin Eliasson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : motor performance; very preterm infants; movement quality; motor competence; radiology; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    Abstract : Infants born very preterm are at risk of adverse neurodevelopment. It is important to identify motor problems early to initiate interventions aiming at ameliorating outcomes. Evaluating motor development in high-risk infants is a complex task. There is a need for assessment methods for early identification of abnormal motor performance. READ MORE

  5. 5. Driver Preferences of Steering Characteristics

    Author : Markus Agebro; Annika Stensson; Lars Drugge; Christopher Patten; KTH; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Driver preferences; Steering characteristics; Steering systems; Driving simulator experiments; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : The future of vehicle steering systems lies within by-wire technology. With by-wire technology mechanical or hydraulic systems are replaced by electronic systems. Removal of the steering column and possibly other linkage and gears yields vast potential of further improvement of performance, comfort and safety. READ MORE
