  1. 1. Functional Metallic Glasses

    Författare :Ansar Masood; Lyubov Belova; K. Venkat Rao; Lars Arnberg; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Bulk Metallic glasses; glass forming ability; soft magnetism; thin films; magnetic properties; magnetic hardening; plasticity; biocompatibility;

    Sammanfattning : For decades, Metallic Glass, with its isotropic featureless structure while exhibiting outstanding mechanical properties was possible only at a high rate of quenching and with at least one dimension in the submicron regime.  This limitation was overcome with the discovery of Bulk Metallic glasses, BMGs, containing three or more elements following the additional two empirical rules of optimum geometric size differences and negative energy of mixing among the constituent elements.

  2. 2. Overall Accessibility of Public Transport for Older Adults

    Författare :Catherine Sundling; Mats E. Nilsson; Birgitta Berglund; Leslie R. Pendrill; Ragne Emardson; Bo Edvardsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; older persons; critical incidents; critical reactions; travel behavior; accessibility; functional limitation; functional ability; barrier; facilitator; public transport; railway travel; Psychology; psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is based on four studies that explore accessibility for older adults during whole trips by public transport. The overall goal was to gain knowledge of the interrelationships among key variables and to develop a conceptual model of the overall accessibility of public transport. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Plant community assembly in grazed grasslands

    Författare :Bryndís Marteinsdóttir; Eriksson Ove; Cousins Sara A. O.; Johan Ehrlén; Meelis Pärtel; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Assembly rules; dispersal limitation; environmental filtering; establishment limitation; ex-arable fields; functional traits; landscape history; semi-natural grasslands; seed bank; seed augmentation; seed rain; trait based filtering; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Species assembly into local communities from the surrounding region can be caused either by species failure to reach the site (i.e. seed limitation) or to establish (i.e. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Catching the Bus in Old Age - Methodological Aspects of Accessibility Assessments in Public Transport

    Författare :Gunilla Carlsson; Hållbar vardag och hälsa i ett livsperspektiv; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; revalidation; rehabilitation; kinesitherapy; cluster analysis; activity; functional limitation; crticial incident; Enabler; environment; elderly; focus group; model; occupational therapy; participant observation; planning; performance; travel; Physical medicine; Road transport technology; Vägtransportteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Engagement in daily activities is central for people’s health and well-being. Today, our activity arenas mostly cover great geographical areas, and to reach different activities we must travel. However, people with functional limitations are sometimes restricted in their travelling. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Exploration and Development of Methodology for Accessibility Assessments: Based on the Notion of Person-Environment Fit

    Författare :Björn Slaug; Institutionen för hälsovetenskaper; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Accessibility; Aged; Disabled persons; Environmental barrier; Environment design; Functional limitation; Interrater agreement; Public health; Supportive environments;

    Sammanfattning : To improve population health, it is important to create environments that support activity, participation and health. One crucial aspect concerns the degree to which the built environment is accessible for all people including those with reduced functional capacity. LÄS MER
