  1. 1. Re-presenting the West : NATO’s Security Discourse after the End of the Cold War

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Författare :Andreas Behnke; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATO; security; discourse; nomos; identity; West; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Political science; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Statsvetenskap; Political Science; statsvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this thesis is a critical investigation into the discursive processes through which the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) has re-produced a geopolitical order, or nomos, after the end of the Cold War and the demise of its constitutive enemy, the Soviet Union. The thesis examines both the ontological as well as the epistemological aspects of these processes. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Hydrodynamic Modelling for a Point Absorbing Wave Energy Converter

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Jens Engström; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ocean wave energy; Point absorber; Wave energy converter; Wave energy transport; Polychromatic wave; Linear generator; Resonance; Finite depth; Modelling; Engineering Science with specialization in Electronics; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektronik;

    Sammanfattning : Surface gravity waves in the world’s oceans contain a renewable source of free power on the order of terawatts that has to this date not been commercially utilized. The division of Electricity at Uppsala University is developing a technology to harvest this energy. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Wargaming in Military Education for Army Officers and Officer Cadets

    Detta är en avhandling från King's College London

    Författare :Johan Elg; Försvarshögskolan.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; wargaming; wargame; instructor; gamification; game-based learning; buy-in; officer education; officer cadet; Sandhurst; West Point; UK; USA; Sweden; Germany; Japan; game director; krigsspel; utbildningsspel; militär utbildning; officersutbildning; Sverige; USA; Storbritannien; Tyskland; Japan; spelbaserat lärande; brädspel; spel; simulering; Försvarshögskolan; instruktör; Krigsvetenskap; Krigsvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Wargaming has been part of military curricula for about 200 years since the introduction of Kriegsspiel, but it is still something of an art form. This thesis attempts to theorise the practice of military educational wargaming, and specifically to explore why such wargaming takes the form it does. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Numerical Modelling and Mechanical Studies on a Point Absorber Type Wave Energy Converter

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Yue Hong; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; linear generator; point absorber; numerical modelling; power production; optimal damping; Engineering Science; Teknisk fysik;

    Sammanfattning : Oceans cover two thirds of the Earth’s surface and the energy potential of ocean waves as a renewable energy source is huge. It would therefore be a tremendous achievement if the vast mechanical energy in waves was converted into a form of energy that could be used successfully by society. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Ocean circulation in the Amundsen Sea, West Antarctica

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Ola Kalén; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ocean; currents; icebergs; remote sensing; ocean model;

    Sammanfattning : The increase of mass loss from the Antarctic Ice Sheet is a significant contribution to global sea level rise. The most rapid changes are occurring in the Amundsen Sea area, where the thinning of the floating glaciers is assumed to be driven by the ocean. LÄS MER
