1. Boundaries of displacement : Belonging and Return among Forcibly Displaced Young Georgians from Abkhazia
Sammanfattning : This dissertation explores the implications of borders and boundaries for how forcibly displaced young Georgians from Abkhazia understand issues of belonging and return. My theoretical framework draws from theories on home and belonging as well as theories on border and boundary making, and locates them in geographies of uncertainty – or riskscapes – areas characterized by conflict and/or inequality.

2. Competition, Coexistence and Character Displacement : In a Young Avian Hybrid Zone
Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates the ecological and evolutionary implications of a recent secondary contact between two closely related bird species: collared (Ficedula albicollis) and pied (F. hypoleuca) flycatchers. LÄS MER
3. Vibrations induced by surface roughness in nonlinear rolling contacts
Sammanfattning : For efficient transportation in either trains, busses or passenger cars, rolling elements such as wheels, tyres, bearings and transmission elements are fundamental. The energy efficiency and the generation of noise and vibrations in rolling contacts depend on the surface roughness of contacting bodies. LÄS MER
4. On Suction Box Dewatering Mechanisms
Sammanfattning : In previous studies on suction box dewatering, three mechanisms were identified that determine the dry content of a web, viz. web compression, displacement of water by air and rewetting. LÄS MER
5. Submerged Transmission in Wave Energy Converters : Full Scale In-Situ Experimental Measurements
Sammanfattning : Different wave power technologies are in development around the world in different stages of prototype testing. So far only a few devices have been deployed offshore at full scale for extended periods of time. Little data is published about how these different devices perform. LÄS MER
