  3. 3. Reduction of refining energy during mechanical pulping : using pressurised chip compression and sulphite pre-treatment

    Författare :Erik Nelsson; Geoffrey Daniel; Mittuniversitetet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Nyckelord :LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Chip pre-treatment; double disc refiner; energy efficiency; Impressafiner; low dosage; Norway spruce; refining intensity; single disc refiner; sulphite pre-treatment; thermomechanical pulp;

    Sammanfattning : The effects of pressurised compressive chip pre-treatment and low dosage sulphite pre-treatment were evaluated for production of thermomechanical pulp in mill scale trials using Norway spruce (Picea abies) at the Braviken paper mill (Holmen Paper AB, Sweden). The general aim of the study was to improve the energy efficiency during the production of mechanical pulps suitable for news and improved news grade papers. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Immigrants with heart failure- A descriptive comparative study of symptoms, self care, social support, care and treatment

    Författare :Azar Hedemalm; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Immigrant; heart failure; symptom; treatment; self care; physical and emotional state; social support; patient records;

  5. 5. On Sequential Treatment Allocations in Clinical Trials

    Författare :Carl-Fredrik Burman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :treatment assignment; clinical trial; biased coin designs; balance of prognostic factors; sequential design; randomization test; expected p-value; deficiency; efficiency; efficiency;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation treats baseline-dependent sequential designs of two-treatment parallel-group clinical trials. The treatment assignments are chosen in order to minimize the variance, in a linear model, of the treatment effect. This is done for each new allocation using a generalized biased coin design, or a non-randomized minimization' method. LÄS MER
