1. Technical cost modelling and efficient design of lightweight composites in structural applications
Sammanfattning : A lightweight transport design reduces fuel costs and emissions and can be achieved through the use of fibre-reinforced composite materials. Although lightweight, the composite raw material can be expensive and the sequential component production challenging and costly. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : It is the demand of the world’s ever increasing energy crisis to reduce fuel consumption wherever possible. One way of meeting this demand is by reducing the weight of a structure by replacing thick plates of low strength steel with thin plates of high strength steel in the structure. LÄS MER
3. On the impact of noise and energy demand from traffic : An assessment using microscopic modelling
Sammanfattning : Noise emissions from transportation remain one of the greatest environmental issues of modern day. Inhabitants in urban environments are especially exposed, with almost 80 million people in the European Union exposed to noise levels exceeding the recommended limits set by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Sammanfattning : The international marine shipping industry is responsible for the transport of around 90% of the total world trade. Low-speed two-stroke diesel engines usually propel the largest trading ships. This engine type choice is mainly motivated by its high fuel efficiency and the capacity to burn cheap low-quality fuels.

Sammanfattning : The demands on maritime operations today are increasingly higher in terms of control, efficiency and cost. The margins for accidents and security incidents are therefore decreasing. In the area of ship safety the regulations, guidelines and methods have a history and culture of systematic research, development and implementation. LÄS MER
