Sammanfattning : In 1948, Casimir predicted a net attractive force between two perfectly conducting parallel plates due to electromagnetic vacuum fluctuations. By analogy, the interaction of two ships on a wavy sea has been named Maritime Casimir effect. This is an example of force generation in non-equilibrium systems. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Our eyes make continuous movements even when attempting to fixate a stationary object. The involuntary eye movements occurring during fixation are referred to as fixational eye movements. There is a general agreement on three types of eye movements occurring during visual fixation: tremor, drift and microsaccade. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In this thesis I conducted numerical simulations to study the flow behavior of dense particle flows composed of hard particles under planar shear using the discrete element method. The simulations were carried out in two dimensional systems, where the particles are modelled as circular discs. The discs are non-Brownian and neutrally buoyant. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Texture and color are the most important parameters in the definition of the quality of potato products, but usually their subjective measurements do not give any reproducible results due to the complicating factors related to human perception. In order to understand the factors that can affect the texture and the color of the potato products during processing, instrumental techniques have been developed for quantifying those parameters.

Sammanfattning : Carbon nanotubes are one of the most promising building blocks for the developing field of nanoelectromechanics. Due to their unique electronic and mechanical properties, these all-carbon systems have been suggested for a range of applications where one wishes to utilse the coupling between mechanical and electronic degrees of freedom on the nanometer length scale.
