  1. 1. Younger patient´s experience of living with mechanical circulatory support. A phenomenological-hermeneutic study

    University essay from

    Author : Maria Lachonius; Karl Hederstedt; [2019-01-29]
    Keywords : heart failure; mechanical circulatory support; patient’s experience; phenomenological-hermeneutical; self-efficacy; the lived body;

    Abstract : Aims and objectives: To describe younger patients’ experiences of living with a mechanicalcirculatory support with focus on self-efficacy.Background: Heart failure is increasing even among younger patients. Life-threatening heart failurecan occur and the patient will need heart transplantation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Influence of nitrocarburization on the thermomechanical fatigue properties of ductile iron for exhaust components : Analysis and comparisons of TMF-properties

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Karl Larsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Thermo-mechanical fatigue; low cycle fatigue; thermal strain; ductile cast iron; nitrocarburizing;

    Abstract : New stricter environmental legislation requires lower emissions and fuel consumption of automotive engines. Therefore the fuel efficiency must be increased but this leads to higher loads in the engine. As for the exhaust system it is affected by higher thermomechanical loads. READ MORE

  3. 3. Design of bi-adhesive joint for optimal strength

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Siva Koti Reddy Vennapusa; [2019]
    Keywords : Bi-adhesive joint; Linear elastic fracture mechanics; Cohesive zone modelling; Optimization;

    Abstract : To support the trust in the design development of adhesively bonded joints, it is important to precisely predict their mechanical failure load. A numerical simulation model with a two-dimensional linear elastic cohesive zone model using a combination of a soft and a stiff adhesive is developed to optimize the strength of a lap-joint.

  4. 4. Probabilistic non-linear finite element analysis of concrete buttress dams

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Adrian Ulfberg; [2019]
    Keywords : ATENA; FREET; SARA; probabilistic; numerical; Kalhovd; FEA; FEM;

    Abstract : Assessment of concrete buttress dams today consists of using analytical methods to investigate the stability in different failure modes. However, they simplify the problem at hand and neglect certain important features linked to geometry and thus not truthfully appraise the structures real stability. READ MORE

  5. 5. Who Takes The Lead? : Investigating Leadership In The Climate Change And Human Mobility Nexus

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Felicia Wartiainen; [2019]
    Keywords : Climate Change; Human Mobility; Migration; Displacement; Leadership; Leadership Modes; Negotiations; UNFCCC; Katowice Summit; COP 24;

    Abstract : Leadership has been claimed to be a critical determinant of success and failure in international negotiations. This thesis brings together the study of leadership in multilateral negotiations with the emerging discipline of climate change-induced human mobility. READ MORE
