Environmental research and in-situ measurements have shown that most regions of the Baltic Sea harnesses a large wind energy potential. The Finnish government has outlined a policy to generate a rapid increase in the use and production of renewable wind energy. In order to achieve these goals, the need arises for the construction of full scale...

In recent times the fuel prices have increased significantly. This implies major reductions in profit margins for airlines. Additionally the increasingly stringent emission standards for aircraft generate the need for better fuel economy. This master thesis aims at providing a contribution to lower the emissions made by future turbofan engines...

This paper examines factors that shape intentions to study abroad. Previous research highlights the importance of various forms of capital - human, economic, social, cultural and mobility capital - as well as of personality traits in the formation of the intention to complete education in foreign countries. Our specific focus is on ethnic...

In this research, we constructed a model which makes an optimal schedule for the transport of patients in ambulances. These transportation are called requests. This scheduling problem is an example of Dial-a-Ride Problem (DARP). We define a Mixed Integer Linear Program (MILP), which consists of an objective function and constraints. These...

Fluid-structure interactions (FSI) are multi-physical phenomena where the dynamics of a fluid flow and the dynamics of a moving/deforming structure influence one another simultaneously. The accurate modelling, simulation and analysis of FSI is crucial for many engineering applications. However, high-fidelity FSI simulations are currently too...

A three month long field research brought to light that the lack of livelihood opportunities in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand is leading to outmigration of people from the state. There is a major need to develop sustained income and employment opportunities for the people in the region. The monoculture of pine forests shed huge amounts pine...

In this research, the effects of Mn and Si concentration and that of the isothermal intercritical holding temperature on the austenite-to-ferrite (? ? ?) and the martensite-to-austenite (?? ? ?) phase transformations are studied for a series of Fe-C-Mn-Si steels with up to 7 wt pct Mn. The model is based on the local equilibrium (LE) concept....

The aim of our work is to design bodily mood expressions of humanoid robots for interactive settings that can be recognized by users and have (positive) effects on people who interact with the robots. To this end, we develop a parameterized behavior model for humanoid robots to express mood through body language. Different settings of the...

Purpose In orthopaedics, minimally invasive injection of bone cement is an established technique. We present HipRFX, a software tool for planning and guiding a cement injection procedure for stabilizing a loosening hip prosthesis. HipRFX works by analysing a pre-operative CT and intraoperative C-arm fluoroscopic images. Methods HipRFX simulates...

Proteins are vital in all biological systems as they constitute the main structural and functional components of cells. Recent advances in mass spectrometry have brought the promise of complete proteomics by helping draft the human proteome. Yet, this commonly used protein sequencing technique has fundamental limitations in sensitivity. Here we...

We studied how personality moderates the effect of neighbourhood disadvantage on work commitment and unemployment in early adulthood. Using a personality typolo-gy of resilients, overcontrollers, and undercontrollers, we hypothesised that the association between neighbourhood poverty and both work commitment and unemployment would be stronger...

The modelling approaches can go to two extremes: fully data-oriented and fully process oriented. Modelling for diesel engines is not excluded. Usually data-oriented is computational friendly and accurate and the latter is detail and flexible. A high-speed diesel engine model is missing in project JOULES. The objective of this work is to develop...

A minimalistic robotic device for aiding persons with degraded balancing ability was recently proposed, employing a number of single-gimbal control moment gyroscopes (CMGs) mounted to a backpack-like orthopedic corset. Once a fall is detected, the device must track a predefined moment profile to bring the subject upright or else slow the fall...
