    Author : Sharon P. Rider; sharon rider; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Philosophy; subject; subjectivity; objectivity; certainty; doubt; phenomenology; poststructuralism; deconstruction; neopragmatism; gender; Filosofi; Philosophy subjects; Filosofiämnen; Theoretical Philosophy; Teoretisk filosofi; pragmatism;

    Abstract : This dissertation explores certain recurrent problems in modern theories about the nature of thesubject. Taking examples from phenomenology, poststructuralism, neopragmatism and feminism, itargues that philosophical theorizing about subjectivity often assumes that the transition from thedescription of the models of meaning with which they work, to the description of the everyday practices of which they are models, can be achieved within the model.

    Abstract : The digitalization of manufacturing industry and the profound reliance on interconnected System of Systems (SoS) is demanding for innovative solutions that can handle production processes, while making use of the new data that is being generated by various connected devices. Innovations based on collecting, evaluating, and using this data can improve existing processes and create new business models. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nonlinear Numerical Simulations of Interactions Between Ice Rubble and Structure

    Author : Aniket Patil; Andrzej Cwirzen; Björnar Sand; Lennart Fransson; Knut Vilhelm Høyland; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ice mechanics; ice rubble; sea ice ridges; punch through test; shear box test; friction coefficient; cohesive element method; smoothed particle hydrodynamics; continuous surface cap model; numerical modelling; Byggkonstruktion; Structural Engineering;

    Abstract : This research is focused on three distinct but interconnecting topics:1) investigation of physical and mechanical properties of ice rubble, 2) material modelling of ice rubble, 3) numerical simulation of the interaction between ice rubble structure interaction. large scatter in the values of physical and mechanical properties of ice rubble can be seen in the literature due to non-standardised methods.

    Abstract : This study is concerned with subject formation in the fiction of contemporary postcolonial authors Abdulrazak Gurnah, Yvonne Vera, and David Dabydeen. In contextualised readings of a total of nine works – Gurnah’s Admiring Silence (1996), By the Sea (2001), and Desertion (2005); Vera’s Without a Name (1996), Butterfly Burning (1998), and The Stone Virgins (2002); Dabydeen’s Disappearance (1993), Turner (1994), and A Harlot’s Progress (1999) – it explores thematic and formal aspects of the subject’s constitution in the texts.
