  1. 1. New Tides in Shipping : Studying incumbent firms in maritime energy transitions

    Author : Ignė Stalmokaitė; Björn Hassler; Johanna Yliskylä-Peuralahti; Tommy Larsson Segerlind; René Taudal Poulsen; Södertörns högskola; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; shipping; incumbent firms; maritime energy transitions; multi-level perspective; dynamic capabilities; regime-niche interactions; decarbonisation; air-borne emissions; sustainability transitions; Environmental Studies; Miljövetenskapliga studier; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Abstract : Shipping is a cornerstone of global transportation responsible for moving large volumes of traded goods. At the same time, negative environmental impacts of shipping operations have attracted growing concerns. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exploring Tampering : Towards an Understanding of Why Improvement Efforts Sometimes Fail

    Author : Magdalena Smeds; Mattias Elg; Jason Martin; Ida Gremyr; Johan Lilja; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Ever-increasing competition together with increasing and changing customer demands place high demands on organisations to maintain and improve their current products and services while also developing and renewing their offerings. However, research claims that many improvement efforts carried out in organisations fail. READ MORE

  3. 3. Designing for Safe Maritime Navigation. Studying Control Processes for Bridge Teams

    Author : Victor Fernando Placido da Conceicao; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; safety; Socio-technical Systems; navigation control; joint cognitive systems; e-Navigation; human factors; pilotage;

    Abstract : Several technological advances have been seen the maritime domain to achieve higher operational efficiency and to address the generally recognised causes of most maritime accidents. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) endorses the use of best available technology to “drive continuous improvement and innovation in the facilitation of maritime traffic” in line with the goal of sustainable development.

  4. 4. What Will We Learn? : A Mathematical Treatise of Cultural Evolution

    Author : Pontus Strimling; Kimmo Eriksson; Robert Boyd; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cultural Evolution; Mathematical modeling; Applied mathematics; Tillämpad matematik; Matematik tillämpad matematik;

    Abstract : In this thesis we apply mathematics and formal modeling to study culture from an evolutionary standpoint. Cultural evolution theory is based on the belief that we can increase our understanding of human behavior by studying how culture is created and spread. READ MORE

  5. 5. Initiation of rolling contact fatigue from asperities in elastohydrodynamic lubricated contacts

    Author : Carl-Magnus Everitt; Bo Alfredsson; Stefan Björklund; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Spalling; Pitting; Slip; Elastohydrodynamic; Thermal elastohydrodynamic; Fatigue; Contact mechanics.; Pitting; Glidning; Elastohydrodynamik; Termisk elastohydrodynamik; Utmattning; Kontaktmekanik.; Solid Mechanics; Hållfasthetslära;

    Abstract : Rolling contacts are utilized in many technical applications, both in bearings and in the contact between gear teeth. These components are often highly loaded, which makes them susceptible to suffer from rolling contact fatigue. This work focuses on the rolling contact fatigue mechanism of pitting. READ MORE
