  1. 1. Structural robustness - FE methodology for analysing alternate load paths in buildings

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Axel Kjellman; [2017]
    Keywords : accidental action; robustness; finite element method; FE; dynamics; progressive collapse; redundancy; alternate path; notional removal; precast; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Robust structures are necessary in order to avoid a progressive collapse if a local failure occurs, for instance, failure of a column. Robustness is achieved in structures by designing them for so-called accidental actions, such as an explosion or a vehicle impact. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investment in Value: A Copula Approach

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för finansiell ekonomi

    Author : Gustaf Soldan Patrikson; Victor Andrée; [2017]
    Keywords : factor investing; copula; tail dependence; diversification;

    Abstract : We evaluate how factor equity strategies are optimally combined, focusing on the role of the value factor (HML) against the background of a recent academic discussion about its potential redundancy, and the discovery of the investment (CMA) and profitability (RMW) factors. The analysis is centered around a conditional joint return distribution from a dynamic copula model, which allows for simulation with a time-varying and non-normal dependence structure. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mjukvaruutveckling av ett hastighetsberoende reglersystem för den elektriska styrningen av ett fordon styrt med joysticks

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Högskoleingenjörsutbildning i datateknik

    Author : Tom Andersson; Jacob Ingvarsson; [2017]
    Keywords : elektronisk fordonsstryning; styrspakar; reglersystem; hastighetsberoende; parameterstyrning steer by wire; handles; control system; speed dependence; parameter control; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The technology has advanced but the vehicle industry has not evolved at the same pace. Mechanical constructions with a steering wheel are still being used to control the steering of cars. The mechanical construction makes it harder to implement autonomous features, it adds weight and takes up space. READ MORE

  4. 4. An Entropy Estimate of Written Language and Twitter Language : A Comparison between English and Swedish

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för matematik (MA)

    Author : Sanna Juhlin; [2017]
    Keywords : entropy; entropy rate; redundancy; Twitter; natural language;

    Abstract : The purpose of this study is to estimate and compare the entropy and redundancy of written English and Swedish. We also investigate and compare the entropy and redundancy of Twitter language. This is done by extracting n consecutive characters called n-grams and calculating their frequencies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modified and Efficient Image Encryption Algorithm Based on Chaos Theory, DNA Complementary Rules and SHA-256

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Avdelningen för informations- och kommunikationssystem

    Author : Rizwan Haider; [2017]
    Keywords : block encryption; image cryptography; DNA; chaos; SHA-256;

    Abstract : The emerging topic, symmetric encryption technique for digital imagesusing chaotic function and DNA bases has recently drawn a lot ofattentions from the research community. The use of voice and visualmaterial as an addition to textual data has become more widespread. READ MORE
