  1. 1. Integrated Product Service Offerings for Rail Infrastructure : Potential Benefits and Challenges

    Författare :Sofia Lingegård; Mattias Lindahl; Niclas Svensson; Rajkumar Roy; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Large amounts of different materials are used when building and maintaining railway infrastructure, and the environmental impacts from the upstream production stages are significant. Industry’s motivation to innovate is low, new products or methods are rarely used, and the lowest price is the main driver for selecting a tender. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Maternal programming: costs, benefits and constraints of maternal hormone transfer

    Författare :Michael Tobler; MEMEG; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; aves; immune function; behavior; Maternal effects; hormones;

    Sammanfattning : Avian mothers convey significant quantities of androgens (i.e. ?male? steroids) to their eggs, which are known to positively influence embryonic development, post-natal growth and competitive behaviour of the offspring. However, there is large inter-female variation in the amount of androgens transferred to the eggs. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The monetary value of marine environmental change

    Författare :Linus Hasselström; Cecilia Håkansson; Göran Finnveden; Tore Söderqvist; Carl-Johan Lagerkvist; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Contingent valuation; choice experiment; benefits transfer; cost-benefit analysis; ecosystem services; eutrophication; oil spills; Baltic Sea; Arctic; Planering och beslutsanalys; Planning and Decision Analysis;

    Sammanfattning : The marine ecosystems are fundamental for human welfare. A number of current environmental pressures need attention, and the formulation of management strategies requires information from a variety of analytical dimensions. The linkage between environmental change and resulting implications for human welfare is one such dimension. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Reduction of heat transfer and heat load in internal combustion engines

    Författare :Joop Somhorst; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; efficiency; TBC; thermal barrier coating; surface roughness; engine; heat transfer; emissions; alumina; zirconia;

    Sammanfattning : Thermal insulation of the combustion chamber in an engine has great potential to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Research on thermal barrier coatings (TBC) has been performed since the early eighties to address this potential. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Time and Frequency Transfer using Passive Techniques in Active Fiber Optic Networks

    Författare :Sven-Christian Ebenhag; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fiber link; optical fiber.; Global positioning system GPS ; fiber network; time transfer; two-way; synchronous optical networking SONET synchronous digital hierarchy SDH ; GPS carrier phase;

    Sammanfattning : For the modern society, high precision time and frequency transfer have become crucial since a large number of systems, such as telecommunication systems, require precise and stable synchronization. Electric power companies use synchronized systems for taking stability measurements and searching for errors in their networks. LÄS MER
