  1. 1. Real-Time Plastic Deformation of Car Bodyworks

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Tom Ille; [2021-03-09]
    Keywords : computer graphics; plastic deformation; position based deformation;

    Abstract : Realism in video games is furthered each year. Particularly in racing and drivinggames, visual realism in the deformation of cars play a larger and larger role for theimmersion in a virtual world. With the improvements of modern hardware, a newphysically based simulation approach for the deformation of object has emerged. READ MORE

  2. 2. LCA of Low-temperature District Heating Network Components

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för Energivetenskaper

    Author : Nils Olsson; [2021]
    Keywords : District Heating; LCA; Life Cycle Assessment; Pipes; Environment; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Following the development of new materials and the continuous technical progress made in the construction and energy industries, district heating as a concept finds itself on the brink of a generational shift. One of the pioneering projects leading the way is the creation of Brunnshög, an modern and sustainable district under construction in the north-eastern end of the city of Lund, Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. Emission reduction in waste incineration : A comparison of three applicable measures

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Byggteknik och byggd miljö

    Author : Adam Linde; [2021]
    Keywords : Waste; Carbon dioxide; Sorting; Requirement Specification; CCS; BECCS;

    Abstract : Utilization of waste as fuel for heat and power production is commonplace in Sweden, and the fossil emissions from the incineration of waste is primarily derived from the share of plastics in the fuel. Reducing the share of fossil material in the fuel should therefore lead to diminished local emissions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Improving Caco-2 cell permeability assay using phospholipid covered silica beads

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för farmaci

    Author : Lana Faradj; [2021]
    Keywords : permeability; Caco-2; recovery; lipophilic; phosphatidylcholine; silica beads; peptide; plastic binding; bovine serum albumin;

    Abstract : The Caco-2 cell assay is widely used for in vitro permeability measurements. However, a draw back with the assay that this study will focus on improving, is compound adsorption to the plastic material. Lipophilic compounds such as Cyclosporin A and Peptide J, that will be used in this study, tend to bind to the plastic material in the assay. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigation of sustainable methods to reduce water hardness in drinking water treatment plants

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Miljövetenskaplig utbildning

    Author : Élise Karlsson Faudot; [2021]
    Keywords : Water hardness; sustainability; Bulltofta water treatment plant; water hardness reduction; plant biomass; plastic; pumice stone; adsorption; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Water hardness is caused by magnesium and calcium ions (Mg2+ and Ca2+), and can result in formation of deposits, destruction of soap and increase of copper corrosion in old plumbing pipes. To soften the originally hard groundwater supplying 20% of Malmö’s drinking water, Bulltofta water treatment plant imports burned lime from Germany. READ MORE
