  1. 1. Birds in the Flow: Flight Mechanics, Wake Dynamics and Flight Performance

    Författare :Mikael Rosén; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Djurekologi; Animal ecology; Eleonora s falcon.; hunting; optimum wingspan; tail posture; wingbeat kinematics; wake topology; DPIV; flight performance; wake dynamics; flight mechanics; wind tunnel; Flight; bird;

    Sammanfattning : I share my fascination of bird flight with many others, and here I summarise my thesis on the subject. This thesis emphasises the mechanics of bird flight by focusing on flight mechanics, wake dynamics and flight performance. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Flight Behaviour of Passerines on Nocturnal Migration

    Författare :Cecilia Nilsson; Evolutionär ekologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bird migration; Passerines; Flight Behaviour; Tracking radar; Optimal migration; Flight speed; Airspeed; Wind drift; Nocturnal migration; Coastline effects; Flight directions; Reverse migration;

    Sammanfattning : Many passerines migrate during the night and at high altitudes, making their migration difficult to observe. By using tracking radars we have been able to make exact observations of the flight behaviour of passerines on nocturnal migration, which has enabled us to test several hypotheses about adaptive values and constraints regarding migratory behaviour in different ecological contexts.

  3. 3. Flight strategies in migrating birds: when and how to fly

    Författare :Martin Green; Biodiversitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; geese; waders; terns; Animal ecology; Djurekologi; wind tunnel; radio telemetry; satellite telemetry; radar; formation flight; flight speed adjustment; wind drift; energy savings; departure decisions; bird migration; wind;

    Sammanfattning : Wind has a profound influence on migrating birds since it inevitably will influence travel time and energy expenditure. In this thesis I investigate how migrating birds are affected by, and use winds. LÄS MER

  4. 4. On subscale flight testing : Cost-effective techniques for research and development

    Författare :Alejandro Sobron; Petter Krus; David Lundström; Mirko Hornung; Linköpings universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : Experiments with downscaled or subscale physical models have traditionally been an essential source of information in aerospace research and development. Physical models are very effective at revealing unforeseen issues and providing confidence in design predictions or hypotheses. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Working conditions and musculoskeletal disorders in flight baggage handling

    Författare :Eva L Bergsten; Svend Erik Mathiassen; Eva Vingård; Lydia Kwak; Nordin Margareta; Margareta Nordin; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; low back pain; shoulder pain; physical exposures; psychosocial exposures; inclinometry; implementation; process evaluation; Health-Promoting Work; Hälsofrämjande arbete; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; Arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: Baggage handling is considered to be a heavy manual handling job including biomechanical exposures suspected of increasing the risk for musculoskeletal disorders. Aims: To document low back pain (LBP), shoulder pain (SP), and physical and psychosocial factors in baggage handlers, and to evaluate the implementation of an ergonomic intervention aiming to increase the use of loading assist devices.
