  1. 6. Human Postures and Movements analysed through Constrained Optimization

    Författare :Robert Pettersson; Anders Eriksson; Elena Gutierrez-Farewik; Hans Berg; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; multibody system; optimal control; trajectory optimization; long jump; posture; Other engineering mechanics; Övrig teknisk mekanik;

    Sammanfattning : Constrained optimization is used to derive human postures and movements. In the first study a static 3D model with 30 muscle groups is used to analyse postures. The activation levels of these muscles are minimized in order to represent the individual's choice of posture. LÄS MER

  2. 7. An evolutionary basis for protein design and structure prediction

    Författare :Christoffer Norn; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Protein evolution; Biophysics; Protein design; Protein structure prediction;

    Sammanfattning : The sequence diversity of protein families is a result of the biophysical selection pressures that shaped their evolutionary history. Among the dominant pressures is selection for protein thermostability, which in itself is an attractive target in protein engineering because of its importance for various biopharmaceutical properties, the performance of industrial enzymes, and the ability to design new protein functions.

  3. 8. Airborne Wind Energy - To fly or not to fly?

    Författare :Elena Malz; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Renewable Energy Systems; Airborne Wind Energy; Modelling; Optimal Control;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates crosswind Airborne Wind Energy Systems (AWESs) in terms of power production and potential role in future electricity generation systems. The perspective ranges from the small scale, modelling AWE as a single system, to the large, implementing AWESs in regional electricity systems. LÄS MER

  4. 9. Simulator-Based Design : Methodology and vehicle display application

    Författare :Torbjörn Alm; Kjell Ohlsson; Martin Helander; Peter Hancock; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Simulator-Based Design SBD ; Human-in-the-loop simulators; Virtual prototyping; In-vehicle systems; Human-machine interaction HMI ; 3D situation displays; Adaptive interfaces; Work sciences and ergonomics; Arbetsvetenskap och ergonomi;

    Sammanfattning : Human-in-the-loop simulators have long been used in the research community as well as in industry. The aviation field has been the pioneers in the use of simulators for design purposes. In contrast, corresponding activities in the automotive area have been less widespread. LÄS MER
