Sammanfattning : The purpose of this dissertation is to study the fantastic in the tales of the Italian children’s author Gianni Rodari. This analysis is grounded in the hypothesis that the fantastic is primarily characterized by two esthetic qualities, play and lightness, both of which are manifested at different levels in these texts, as well as in the relation between children and adults.

2. Fear of flying in civil airline passengers: a manifold phenomenon with various motivational roots
Sammanfattning : This thesis comprises four papers reporting results from a project studying the fear of flying phenomenon. Paper I is an evaluation study of a new percept-genetic instrument, the Flight Situation Test (FST). A group of 24 subjects with a fear of flying (FoF) and 19 controls (non-FoF) were tested. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Aim: Flying personnel are exposed to several factors in the work environment that can potentially increase their cancer incidence, mortality and acute myocardial infarction (AMI) incidence. The aim of this licentiate thesis is to study cancer incidence among Swedish cabin crew in relation to exposures in the work environment and to study mortality and AMI incidence in Swedish airline and military flying personnel.

Sammanfattning : Flying, as well as walking insects rely on vision to regulate locomotion, even in the dark when the visual system is much less reliable. To manage visual control of these behaviours at low light intensities, many insects have evolved optical adaptations, such as larger facet lenses and wider rhabdoms, and neural adaptations, such as spatial and temporal summation, to increase their visual sensitivity.

Sammanfattning : To reduce development cost and to avoid late design fixes in aircraft design, methods that are fast and economic in estimating the aerodynamic characteristics of complex flight vehicles at the preliminary design stage are desired. This work and thesis focus on the adaptive-fidelity CFD approach, with emphasis on the high end of the CFD tools available today. LÄS MER
