  1. 1. Explaining Trends in Car Use

    Författare :Anne Bastian; Maria Börjesson; Jonas Eliasson; Oded Cats; Patricia Mokhtarian; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; car use; peak car; VMT; VKT; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : Many western countries have seen a plateau and subsequent decline in car travel during the early 21st century. What has generated particular interest and debate is the claim that the development cannot only be explained by changes in traditional explanatory factors such as GDP, fuel prices and land-use.

  2. 2. Peak Car in Sweden?

    Författare :Anne Bastian; Maria Börjesson; Margareta Friman; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Sammanfattning : It has long been well-known that economic variables such as GDP and fuel price as well as socio-demographic characteristics and spatial distribution are key factors in explaining car use trends. However, due to the recently observed plateau of total car travel in many high income countries, it has been argued that other factors, such as changes in preferences, attitudes and life-styles, have become more important drivers of car use.

  3. 3. Industrial development of car disassembly - ergonomics and system performance

    Författare :Karolina Kazmierczak; Ergonomi och aerosolteknologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; physical workloads; production systems; muskelsystem; reumatologi; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; muscle system; Skeleton; flow and human simulations; video-task analysis; rationalizations; car disassembly; musculoskeletal disorders; Technological sciences; Teknik;

    Sammanfattning : A new EU directive on used vehicles has recently been introduced. It demands that for every scrapped car, at least 85% by weight must be recycled by the year 2006 and 95% by 2015. The current level is about 80%. The car disassembly industry was chosen as the study object of this thesis. LÄS MER

  4. 4. The impact of an Electrification of Road Transportation on the Electricity system in Scandinavia

    Författare :Maria Taljegård; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; electric road systems; energy consumption; peak power; electric car; variation management; energy system modelling;

    Sammanfattning : The transport sector needs to reduce CO2 emissions by replacing fossil fuels with low-carbon options. An electrification of the road transport sector through electric vehicles (EVs) with static charging; electric road systems (ERS); and using electricity to produce a fuel, are all suggested as possible options.

  5. 5. Ergonomics in car disassembly industry on the edge of major rationalizations

    Författare :Karolina Kazmierczak; Ergonomi och aerosolteknologi; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; disassembly production systems; mechanical exposures; car disassembly industry; rationalizations; ergonomics;

    Sammanfattning : A new EU directive on used vehicles has recently been introduced. It demands that for every scrapped car, at least 85% by weight must be recycled by the year 2006 and 95% by 2015. Today this level is about 80%. The growing car disassembly industry was chosen as the study object of this thesis. LÄS MER
