1. On the mechanics of actin and intermediate filament networks and their contribution to cellular mechanics
Sammanfattning : The mechanical behaviour of cells is essential in ensuring continued physiological function, and deficiencies therein can result in a variety of diseases. Also, altered mechanical response of cells can in certain cases be an indicator of a diseased state, and even actively promoting progression of pathology. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns fractures subjected to compressive stresses. In the four papers appended fracture behavior in brittle as well as ductile materials is studied. LÄS MER
3. Impact damping and airplane towing : two studies of the response of solid bodies to transient loads
Sammanfattning : The impact of a linearly elastic hammer on a linearly viscoelastic plate is the first problem considered in this thesis. The results, obtained by using the Laplace transformation method, can be used in the design of impact protection devices. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Ageing of low alloy steels affects the structural integrity assessment as it most commonly causes embrittlement and a hardening of the material. This is due to theevolution of the microstructure during operation in the specific application. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : For dynamical systems having several degrees of freedom, motion in one direction can induce motion in the other and/or vice versa. This means that there is a certain coupling between these two motions. Coupling can in some cases be a source of instability that causes self-excited vibrations in rotating machinery. LÄS MER
