  1. 1. Urban drainage and climate change : impact assessment

    Författare :Karolina Berggren; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2007), the global mean temperature has increased by 0,7 °C during the last 100 years and, as a consequence, the hydrological cycle has intensified with, for example, more intense rainfall events. As urban drainage systems have been developed over a long period of time and design criteria are based upon climatic characteristics, these changes will affect the systems and the city accordingly.

  2. 2. Assessment of crosswind performance of buses

    Författare :Magnus Juhlin; Annika Stensson Trigell; Carsten Proppe; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; crosswind; buses; steering feel; directional stability; subjective; objective; aerodynamic load; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Sammanfattning : When driving a vehicle on the road, the driver has to compensate continuously for small directional deviations from the desired course due to disturbances such as crosswinds, road irregularities and unintended driver inputs. These types of deviations have a tiring effect on the driver and should therefore be minimised. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Transparency within REACH? : Regulatory risk assessment of industrial chemicals

    Författare :Ellen Ingre-Khans; Christina Rudén; Marlene Ågerstrand; Anna Beronius; Jeanne Duus Johansen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; REACH; chemicals legislation; risk assessment; hazard assessment; transparency; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Chemicals provide us with many benefits but can also have adverse effects on human health and the environment. Concerns that previous European legislations were not providing adequate protection from chemical risks resulted in a new chemicals legislation – REACH – in 2007. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Response Time as Self-Schema Indicator : Implications for Personality Assessment

    Författare :Lars-Erik Hedlund; Bo Ekehammar; Nazar Akrami; Martin Bäckström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Self-schema; response time; inverted-U effect; heritability; personality assessment; curvilinearity; personality trait; five factor model; Psychology; Psykologi; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Sammanfattning : The focal objective of this thesis was to examine the potential advantage of introducing the self-schema concept, indexed by response time, into personality assessment. The basic rationale for the use of response time is that a self-schema facilitates response time for self-referent information as it permits people to make assessments easier and automatic. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Setting occupational exposure limits : Practices and outcomes of toxicological risk assessment

    Författare :Linda Schenk; Christina Rudén; Alan Boobis; Michael Gilek; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Assessment Factor; DNEL; Euroepan Union; Occupational Exposure Limit; REACH; Risk Assessment; Regulatory Toxicology; SCOEL; Uncertainty Factor; Toxicology; Toxikologi;

    Sammanfattning : Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs) are used as an important regulatory instrument to protect workers’ health from adverse effects of chemical exposures. The main objective of this thesis is to study risk assessment practices in the setting of OEL in order to produce knowledge that will help improve the consistency and transparency of OELs. LÄS MER
