    Abstract : This dissertation examines the journalistic discourse surrounding health care reform debates in Sweden and the US in the early 1990's. It found that in both countries, the challenging value (i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Clothing Evaporative Resistance: Its Measurements and Application in Prediction of Heat Strain

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Faming Wang; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal manikin; clothing ensemble; evaporative resistance; localised evaporative resistance; thermophysiological response; heat stress; heat strain; the Predicted Heat Strain PHS model;

    Abstract : Clothing evaporative resistance is one of the most important inputs for both the modelling and for standards dealing with thermal comfort and heat stress. It might be determined on guarded hotplates, on sweating manikins or even on human subjects. READ MORE

  3. 3. Strength grading of structural timber and EWP laminations of Norway spruce - Development potentials and industrial applications

    University dissertation from Växjö : Linnaeus University Press

    Author : Jan Oscarsson; RISE.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Byggteknik; Civil engineering; fibre angle; grain angle; knots; laser scanning; machine strength grading; modulus of elasticity; side boards; strain; structural timber; wet gluing; wood;

    Abstract : Hållfasthetssortering av konstruktionsvirke är en sågverksprocess som innebär att värdet av det sågade virket ökar väsentligt. Principen för denna typ av sortering är att styrkan hos ett virkesstycke predikteras med utgångspunkt från en så kallad indikerande egenskap (IP) som oftast representeras av medelvärdet av elasticitetsmodulen (E-modulen) mätt över en sträcka av minst en meter utmed virkesstyckets längd.

  4. 4. Survival and functional recovery following valve replacement in patients with severe aortic stenosis

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Wenhong Ding; Umeå universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aortic stenosis; surgical aortic valve replacement; transcatheter aortic valve implantation; survival; predictor; echocardiography; speckle tracking; ventricular function; twist; strain; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Aortic stenosis (AS) is the most common heart valve disease in Europe and North America. Age-related calcification of the valve is the commonest cause of acquired AS, especially in patients older than 70 years. READ MORE

  5. 5. High Strain Fatigue Crack Growth and Crack Closure

    University dissertation from Department of Mechanical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Michael Andersson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; materialteknik; Materiallära; Material technology; crack closure; high strain fatigue; crack grotwh;

    Abstract : Understanding of the growth of fatigue cracks is of utmost importance since such growth often has a profound influence on the life of components subjected to cyclic loading. Thus, reliable fatigue life models enable a more efficient use of materials and improve the performance and efficiency in many applications. READ MORE
