  1. 1. Mechanical properties of SiC nanowires with polytypes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Anders Vesti; [2019]
    Keywords : atomistic modeling; nanowires; molecular dynamics; simulation; SiC; silicon carbide; fracture behavior; nanomechanics; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In this report, we model the mechanical properties and fracture behavior of SiC nanowires with different polytypes using Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations. The mechanical properties investigated are the Young’s modulus, the maximum tensile stress and the fracture strain. The three polytype tested are SiC (3C), (2H) and (4H). READ MORE

  2. 2. Vegetation phenology derived using the plant phenology index and the normalized difference vegetation index for the Balkan peninsula, south-eastern Europe

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Aleksandra Ivanova; [2019]
    Keywords : physical geography; ecosystem analysis; phenology; vegetation; climate change; remote sensing; plant phenology index; PPI; timesat; Balkan peninsula; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : This study analyses the performance of the satellite derived Plant Phenology Index (PPI) against the Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) for estimating start of season (SOS) and end of season (EOS) of vegetation growth in part of the Balkan Peninsula, Southeastern Europe (2000 – 2016). Results revealed that PPI and NDVI differ considerably; SOS and EOS may diverge by more than one month between the two indices. READ MORE

  3. 3. Frostskadors effekt på granens (Picea abies (L.) H. karst) volymutveckling

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Forest Ecology and Management

    Author : David Bengtsson; Tobias Holdo; [2018]
    Keywords : frostlänta marker; volymförlust; hyggesåldersförsöket; anpassad skötsel; skärm;

    Abstract : Kandidatarbetet har behandlat frostskadors effekt på volymutvecklingen hos gran (Picea abies (L.) H. Karst), fram till 20 år efter planteringstillfället. De frostskador som undersöktes var de som drabbade plantorna under de tre första åren efter anläggning. READ MORE

  5. 5. Field study in Machacamarca, Bolivia : An investigation on the effects of implementing solar powered irrigation

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik; KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Amanda Henriksson; Stina Busin; [2018]
    Keywords : Irrigation; Solar power; Agriculture; Bevattning; Solenergi; Jordbruk;

    Abstract : This bachelor thesis consists of a field study conducted in the canton of Machacamarca close to La Paz in Bolivia. The global climate change has affected the weather in the area which has caused higher temperatures, irregularity in precipitation and unexpected frost. READ MORE
