  1. 1. Explicit consideration of microbes in quantification of gross N rates based on N-tracing model

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Tsai-wei Tang; [2022-01-26]
    Keywords : N-tracing model; microbial biomass; gross N quantification; organic N; mineralization; immobilization;

    Abstract : When studying the nitrogen cycle in soils, the principle of 15N isotope dilution and enrichment is commonly used to measure gross N transformation rates. The measuring data of both organic and inorganic nitrogen substrates are therefore be analysed by Ntrace model. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of whole-body bone scans performed using a gamma camera with Cadmium Zinc Telluride detector

    University essay from

    Author : Victor Asp; [2022-01-13]
    Keywords : Medical physics; whole-body bone scans; gamma camera; Cadmium Zinc Telluride detector;

    Abstract : The bone scan is a common nuclear medicine imaging procedure that is mainly used for evaluating several oncological patient groups. A radioactive tracer, 99mTc -labelled diphosphonate, is injected intravenously and accumulates in the skeleton. The distribution of the tracer in the body is measured with a gamma camera 3 hours post-injection. READ MORE

  3. 3. Predicting Treatment Performance Using Ternary Plot : Macronutrients’ impact on biomass conversion efficiency

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Madeleine Gobl; [2022]
    Keywords : Black soldier fly; organic waste treatment; biomass conversion efficiency; treatment performance; macronutrients; ternary plot; organic waste; amerikansk vapensflugan; triangulär diagram; organiskt avfallsbehandling; organiskt avfall; behandlingseffektivitet; biomassomvandlings-effektivitet; makronäringsämnen;

    Abstract : Black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) waste treatment is becoming a more sought-after organic waste treatment since it produces larvae for animal feed as well as fertilizer, the need for prediction and optimization of treatment performance increases. This study aims to predict biomass conversion efficiency (BCE) for waste going into treatment, using only the nutritional data from other studies as it could give a good performance estimation while using available data.

  4. 4. Flow modeling and bank erosion downstream due to spillway discharge : Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree) 30 ECTS credits

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för beräkningsvetenskap

    Author : Alexander Lindblad; [2022]
    Keywords : Ansys Fluent; Multiphase Flow; Spillway; CFD; Volume of Fluid; Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes;

    Abstract : Dam spillways and downstream areas are used to guide large flows of water during for example heavy rainfall. The large flows give way to turbulent pattern sand velocities that may damage the river banks or the dam structure. Investigation of these water patterns at certain flows are therefore done to examine at risk areas. READ MORE

  5. 5. In Search of a Method - How to Prospectively Recognise Drift into Failure

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Riskhantering och Samhällssäkerhet

    Author : Pieter Schaap; [2022]
    Keywords : Drift into failure; Organisational drift; Practical drift; Societal drift; Risk perception; Dynamic Risk Model; Prospectively; Retrospect; Hindsight; Foresight; Local rationale; Collective memory; FLMU06; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : The concept of this research is that by applying the proposed method, the trajectory of drift into failure can be made visible. The method itself consists of two sequential steps. For research purposes a third step is added. READ MORE
