  1. 1. Cold Acclimation : Dissecting the plant low temperature signaling pathway using functional genomics

    Författare :Catherine Benedict; Vaughan Hurry; Matsuo Uemura; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cold acclimation; functional genomics; microarray; Populus tremula; Arabidopsis thaliana; gene voting; regulon; enhancer-blocking; Plant physiology; Växtfysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : The physiological process of cold acclimation protects plants native to the temperate regions of the world from the deleterious effects of low and freezing temperatures. This is achieved by a series of transcriptional, regulatory, and metabolic changes that enable continued growth and survival. Within minutes of exposure to temperatures below ca. LÄS MER

  2. 2. The efficient ethanol engine with cold start capability

    Författare :Jonas Wärnberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Piezo-actuated outward-opening direct injection; SI engine; Two-stage-turbo charging; Ethanol; Stratified Direct Injection; Cold start;

    Sammanfattning : In light of the world’s growing demand for personal transportation and the decreasing availability of fossil fuels, alternative fuels must be evaluated. Ethanol is a renewable fuel whose adoption could help to reduce the burden of anthropogenic activity on the environment. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Outdoor Comfort in Cold Climates : Integrating Microclimate Factors in Urban Design

    Författare :Saeed Ebrahimabadi; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Architecture; Arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : Designing urban spaces that provide outdoor comfort is an important but challenging goal in subarctic climates. An approach to urban design that is sensitive to subarctic climatic conditions is essential, but this requires effective incorporation of urban climate knowledge into urban design, which presently is impeded by several barriers.

  4. 4. Ice out of Fire : Ice and cloud condensation nucleation of aerosol particles emitted from controlled soot generation and combustion of renewable fuels

    Författare :John Falk; Centrum för miljö- och klimatvetenskap (CEC); []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Soot; BC; Immersion freezing; IN; INP; CCN; SPIN; CCNC; MiniCAST; Cold Stage; Cook Stove;

    Sammanfattning : Aerosol particles, small solid or liquid particles suspended in a gas, are found everywhere in the atmosphere. Air pollution from such particles, mainly soot from combustion-derived activity is a leading cause of premature deaths in the world and have a large effect on the climate. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Improved high velocity cold copaction processing : polymer powder to high performance parts

    Författare :Bruska Azhdar; Sture Persson; Cornell Nicolescu; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; high-velocity compaction; powder polymers; polyamide-11; relaxation assist; compactibility; relative green density; morphology; pull-out; springback; Polymer chemistry; Polymerkemi;

    Sammanfattning : A uniaxial High-Velocity Compaction (HVC) process for polymer powder using a cylindrical, hardened steel die and a new technique with relaxation assist was tested with a focus on the compactibility characteristics and surface morphology of the compacted materials using various heights of relaxation assist device with different compacting profiles. Relaxation assist device was presented as a new technique to reduce springback, pull-out phenomenon and to improve the compaction process. LÄS MER
