  1. 1. Urban Redevelopment in Shenzhen, China : Neoliberal Urbanism, Gentrification, and Everyday Life in Baishizhou Urban Village

    University essay from KTH/Urbana och regionala studier

    Author : Johan Backholm; [2019]
    Keywords : Urban Redevelopment; Neoliberal Urbanism; Gentrification; Urban Village; China;

    Abstract : Urban redevelopment is increasingly used as a policy tool for economic growth by local governments in Chinese cities, which is taking place amid rapid urbanization and in an expanding globalized economy. Along with the spatial transformation, urban redevelopment often entails socioeconomic change in the form of processes of gentrification, which is propelled by the dominance of neoliberal market-oriented policy and practice in the country.

  2. 2. Barn i fysisk planering : en undersökning av barnperspektiv och barns perspektiv inom kommunal verksamhet

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Urban and Rural Development

    Author : Lydia Martinsson; Emma Öhrling; [2018]
    Keywords : barnperspektiv; barns perspektiv; dialog; fysisk planering; kommunal verksamhet;

    Abstract : FN:s barnkonvention belyser barns rätt att höras i frågor som rör deras livsmiljö, trots detta får barn sällan sin röst hörd i planeringsprocesser som gäller den fysiska miljön. Vi planerare försöker i många fall utgå från ett barnperspektiv vid planering av barns utemiljö, vilket innebär att vi försöker se världen utifrån barnets synvinkel. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Smart City Transition as a Niche Experiment - A Case Study of Copenhagen's Technological Transition

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Kultur och samhälle

    Author : Peter Melbye Andersen; [2018]
    Keywords : Smart City; Urban Planning; Technological Transitions; Experimental Urbanism; Technology; Urban Management;

    Abstract : This dissertation investigates how the concept of 'smart city' is made operational and governable through place-based interventions in the Danish Capital, Copenhagen. In this way, I seek to demonstrate the complexity of the smart city concept and the ways these policies are implemented in an existing city, instead of grounding the critique in universally idealized but often unrealized grand visions.

  4. 4. Development and Evaluation of a Tomographic Technique for Volumetric Imaging of Flames

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik

    Author : David Sanned; [2018]
    Keywords : 3D-Tomography; Additive Reconstruction Technique; Space Carving; Machine Vision Cameras; Imaging of Flame Models; Technology and Engineering; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : With modern day interest to continue the reduction of harmful emissions and improve the efficiency of combustion devices, the need to further improve upon accuracy and ability to describe combustive processes is of high value. Nowadays, multiple capable point (0D) and two-dimensional measurement (2D) techniques exist for flame investigation, however as combustion nearly always is a three-dimensional (3D) process some limitations do exist within many of these techniques.

  5. 5. Hydrologic modelling of the Zackenberg river basin : an applied study using the Soil and Water Assessment Tool

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Malin Ahlbäck; [2018]
    Keywords : Greenland; SWAT; High Arctic; Distributed Hydrologic Modelling; GIS; surface Water; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Since the 1980s, the Arctic has experienced an amplified warming of more than twice the rate of the global-mean, leading to large-scale changes in the Arctic hydrologic system, ultimately having cascading feedbacks on the global climate. However, few of today’s distributed models manage to capture the complex processes in Arctic hydrology, and therefore, the aim of this thesis was to evaluate the usage of the distributed Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model, to see whether it could capture the different surface water paths and processes characterizing the Arctic water cycle.
