  3. 18. Development of the Lund AMS Facility for the Detection of 59Ni – with Applications in the Nuclear Industry

    University dissertation from Department of Physics, Lund University

    Author : Per Persson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; AMS; Accelerator mass spectrometry; 59Ni; nuclear waste; chemical cobalt reduction; gas stripper; Nuclear engineering and technology; Kärnteknik; Fysicumarkivet A:2002:Persson;

    Abstract : Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) is a highly sensitive method for counting atoms and it is used for detecting very low concentrations of both radionuclides and stable isotopes in small samples. The two major advantages of the AMS method are that the required amount of sample material is very small, but also that the efficiency is rather high, it takes less than an hour to analyse a sample.

    Abstract : This thesis concerns a mechatronic system, designed and developed for the forest industry, to trace logs from forest to sawmill. The research is a key part of a large research project launched by the EU in 2006 called the Indisputable Key project. READ MORE

  5. 20. Supplying engineer-to-order joinery products to the construction Industry

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Samuel Forsman; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Träteknik; Wood Technology;

    Abstract : The supplying of engineer-to-order joinery products to the construction industryis considered a novel research area in the wood-related literature as well as in theconstruction-related literature. The process of supplying the construction industrywith highly refined one-of-a-kind wood products is examined in this thesis, andmore specifically, an organization using a mixture of concept-to-order and designto-order production strategies to produce Engineer-to-order Joinery Products.
