    Sammanfattning : By combining different aspects of auditing and by focusing on the individual auditor and observing auditors at work, this dissertation explores the auditing concept. It focuses on activities carried out by auditors in local settings and how the macro-level phenomenon of “auditing” is realised in micro-level, day-to-day audit work. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Ride Comfort Optimization of Buses

    Författare :Peter Eriksson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :structural vibrations; FEM; global optimization; ride comfort; roll control system; MBS; optimization; bus; road irregularities; sensitivity analysis;

    Sammanfattning : As the design of buses is constantly improving, passengers are becoming more fastidious and the demand for a more comfortable travelling environment is constantly increasing. The main objective of this thesis is to contribute to the understanding of how the design of buses affects the ride comfort characteristics. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Wheelchair Passengers and Local Public Transport Vehicles: Perceptions of Safety and Comfort

    Författare :Anders Wretstrand; Trafik och väg; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road transport technology; Public transport; Bus; STS; Perception; Comfort; Wheelchair users; Safety; Vägtransportteknik; Care and help to handicapped; Handikappade; vård och rehabilitering;

    Sammanfattning : Eliciting wheelchair-seated passengers’ perspective of safety and comfort is both useful and mandatory, particularly for researchers, clinicians, transit authorities, and for operators during purchase and use of vehicle technologies in existing and planned future transport systems. Therefore, the overarching objective of this thesis was to delineate the question of safety and comfort as perceived by wheelchair-seated passengers using public transport road vehicles. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Contact-Dependent growth inhibition (CDI) was discovered in 2005 in the E. coli isolate EC93. Since then our knowledge of CDI systems and their impact on bacterial communities have increased exponentially. LÄS MER

  5. 5. EVALUATION OF ACOUSTIC COMFORT IN APARTMENT BUILDINGS

    Författare :Nikolas Vardaxis; Teknisk akustik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; acoustic comfort; field measurements; noise annoyance; subjective responses;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns assessment of acoustic comfort in apartment buildings. A new approach is followed, beyond noise annoyance investigation, which was the typical path so far. The latter involved acoustic descriptors, which characterize the structural components, being associated to self-reported noise annoyance. LÄS MER
