Among all the contributors to fatal accidents, in-flight loss of control (LOC-I) remains one of the largest categories, as indicated by statistics of investigations into past civil aircraft accidents. In flight LOC generally refers to accidents in which the flight crew was unable to maintain control of the aircraft in flight, resulting in an...

Microwave heating is an encouraging heating technology for the maintenance, recycling, and deicing of asphalt pavement. To investigate the microwave heating properties of asphalt mixture, laboratory tests and numerical simulations were done and compared. Two types of Stone Mastic Asphalt (SMA) mixture samples (with basalt aggregates and steel...

This thesis deals with the structural damage and its corresponding effect on the residual ultimate strength of seamless metallic pipes. The structural damage is here characterized as the type of damage produced by external mechanical interference, considerably undermining the strength and/or stability of the pipes. Not only the aesthetic...

Power generation from biomass is mentioned as a means to make our society more sustainable as it decreases greenhouse gas emissions of fossil origin and reduces the dependency on finite energy carriers, such as coal, oil and natural gas. When assessing the sustainability of power generation from biomass, it is important to consider the supply...

Flooded Generators have been proposed as a possible solution to eliminate the risks due to the seal failure, and improve cooling in tidal stream turbine generators. In a flooded generator, the stator-rotor gap is filled with the seawater; this poses a serious corrosion risk to the material inside the generator. For this reason, a can or a...

Changes in society's vulnerability to natural hazards are important to understand, as they determine current and future risks, and the need to improve protection. Very large impacts including high numbers of fatalities occur due to single storm surge flood events. Here, we report on impacts of global coastal storm surge events since the year...

Permanent magnet machines with fractional slot windings are popular because of their shorter end windings, low cost and ease of manufacturing. On the other hand, fractional slot machines have higher eddy current losses in the rotor magnets and sleeve. An accurate calculation of these losses usually involves a time-stepped finite-element analysis...

Faithful chromosome segregation, driven by the mitotic spindle, is essential for organismal survival. Neopolyploid cells from diverse species exhibit a significant increase in mitotic errors relative to their diploid progenitors, resulting in chromosome nondisjunction. In the model system Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the rate of chromosome loss...

Present-day mass redistribution increases the total ocean mass and, on average, causes the ocean bottom to subside elastically. Therefore, barystatic sea level rise is larger than the resulting global mean geocentric sea level rise, observed by satellite altimetry and GPS-corrected tide gauges. We use realistic estimates of mass...

Edge structures are low-dimensional defects unavoidable in layered materials of the transition metal dichalcogenides (TMD) family. Among the various types of such structures, the armchair (AC) and zigzag (ZZ) edge types are the most common. It has been predicted that the presence of intrinsic strain localized along these edges structures can...

This dissertation investigates how to design a pipe belt conveyor system in a more effective way, considering two aspects: to ensure conveyor belt has sufficient bending stiffness to form an enclosed pipe shape without a contact loss with the idler rolls; and to reduce energy consumption of the system from the indentation rolling resistance. doctoral thesis 2017

Loss given default (LGD) for residential real estate loans is affected by real estate market trends due to the impact on the value of debtors’ main collateral. Banks specialized in real estate lending are expected to be better at selecting lending opportunities, properly evaluating real estate collaterals, and managing the recovery process. The...

Five types of nanofillers, namely, silica, surface-silylated silica, alumina, surface-silylated alumina, and boron nitride, were tested in this study. Nanocomposites composed of an epoxy/amine resin and one of the five types of nanoparticles were tested as dielectrics with a focus on (i) the surface functionalization of the nanoparticles and (ii...

Film pre-stretching is a widely adopted solution to improve dielectric strength of the DEA systems. However, to date, long term reliability of this solution has not been investigated. In this work it is explored how the dielectric elastomer lifetime is affected by film pre-stretching. The dielectric loss of soft polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) films...

The interaction of ice crystals with supercooled liquid droplets in mixed-phase clouds leads to an enhanced growth of ice particles. However, such processes are still not clearly understood although they are important processes for precipitation formation in midlatitudes. To better understand how ice particles grow within such clouds, changes...

In view of the anticipated climate change, many countries face increasing risks of flooding. In many countries, flood protection measures will need to be taken in the coming years to protect flood prone areas from the increased risk of flooding. Since the end of the 20th century, the traditional hard flood protection measures are increasingly...

Mixed-phase hydrogenated silicon oxide (SiOx:H) is applied to thin-film hydrogenated amorphous silicon germanium (a-SiGe:H) solar cells serving as both p-doped and n-doped layers. The bandgap of p-SiOx:H is adjusted to achieve a highly-transparent window layer while also providing a strong electric field. Bandgap grading of n-SiOx:H is designed...

The benefit of two-terminal multijunction solar cells in regard to the number
of junctions (subcells) is critically evaluated. The optical and electrical losses
inherent in the construction of multijunction cells are analyzed using information
from thin-film silicon photovoltaics as a representative case. Although

Objectives
Since the beginning of the second industrial revolution in the second half of the 19th century, Europe’s society and economy has been profoundly transformed. The population doubled in the last 150 years, together with more than fourfold increase in number of dwellings and 30-fold increase in production value in real terms. At the...
