  1. 1. Perceptual Surface Reconstruction

    Författare :Jens Månsson; Kognitionsvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; system; kontroll; Psychology; Psykologi; numerisk analys; Datalogi; systems; control; numerical analysis; Surface; Contour; Depth; Vision; Binocular; Computer science;

    Sammanfattning : How does the brain transform the 2-D light arrays in our eyes into a meaningful 3-D description of surfaces around us? What assumptions does the visual system make about the world when information is incomplete? And how are these assumptions computationally expressed in this perceptual reconstruction process? These questions, and other aspects of binocular depth perception are analysed from a theoretical and computational perspective, as well as through empirical investigations. In paper one, the fundamentals of stereopsis are briefly reviewed, and the difficulties related with resolving the (stereo) correspondence problem are particularly discussed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. On Surface Topography of Steel Sheet for Car Bodies

    Författare :Magnus Jonasson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :paint appearance; forming; steel sheet; bearing area; 3D surface roughness; area parameters; ball filter; friction; surface topography;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis is a contribution to the scientific area of surface topography on sheet metal surfaces. The studies are restricted to exploring the influence of the steel sheet,s surface topography on forming properties and on appearance after painting. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Surface proteins of pathogenic streptococci

    Författare :Thomas Areschoug; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi; Microbiology; factor H; complement regulator; CD89; human IgA; protective immunity; surface protein; Streptococcus pyogenes; group B streptococcus;

    Sammanfattning : Streptococcus pyogenes (group A streptococcus) and the group B streptococcus (GBS) are two important human pathogens that cause different types of diseases and express different surface structures implicated in virulence. This thesis focuses on several surface proteins expressed by these pathogens, analyzing the biological function of these proteins and their ability to elicit protective immunity. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Dynamic Wetting of Solid Surfaces, Influence of Surface Structures and Surface Active Polymers

    Författare :Stina Gerdes; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; stick-slip; Wilhelmy plate; block copolymers; surface active polymers; surface channels; spreading; contact angles; dynamic wetting; surface structures; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : The effect of surface structures on the dynamics of wetting was investigated through measurements of the dynamic contact angle and spreading velocity of oil droplets spreading over surfaces with parallel and gridlike V-shaped channels. A rim of liquid was observed to spread out in the channels ahead of the dropfront after a short time of spreading (seconds). LÄS MER

  5. 5. Bioaccessibility of Stainless Steels : Importance of Bulk and Surface Features

    Författare :Gunilla Herting; Inger Odnevall Wallinder; Stuart Lyon; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Stainless steel; iron; chromium; nickel; corrosion; metal release; artificial rain; synthetic body fluids; acetic acid; surface oxide; surface finish; Surface and colloid chemistry; Yt- och kolloidkemi;

    Sammanfattning : With increasing environmental awareness, the desire to protect human beings and the environment from adverse effects induced by dispersed metals has become an issue of great concern and interest. New policies, such as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) within the European Community, have been implemented to reduce hazards posed by the use of chemicals on producers and downstream users.
