  1. 1. Social workers with borders Finnish social workers’ perceptions of transnationalism in the practice with unaccompanied minor migrants

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för socialt arbete

    Author : Anna Joutsijoki; [2019-01-31]
    Keywords : Social work; unaccompanied minor; asylum seeker; refugee; transnational migration;

    Abstract : The aim of this paper was to study the perceptions which Finnish social workers hold of transnationalism in their practice with unaccompanied minors. Seeing how they perceived it as part of the minor’s lives, how they took into consideration the transnational family ties, and how transnational was their own practice were the questions that this study intended to answer.

  2. 2. Under our own eyes - Mothers in search for consciousness and social change in Brazil

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Kultur och samhälle

    Author : Fernanda Favaro; [2019]
    Keywords : motherhood; communication for development; participatory communication; work rights; feminism; networks; social media; empowerment; conscientization; dialogue; gender equality; Brazil; mumpreneurship;

    Abstract : This case study provides an analysis on how working women mothers in Brazil articulate themselves in a feminist network born on social media (Maternativa) to generate collective empowerment, raise awareness about oppression and mobilize around work rights. Using qualitative methods such as insider participant observation, interviews and content analysis, it investigates how participatory-related communicative practices and feminism interplay on digital and interpersonal environments fostering dialogue, conscientization and, potentially, a “political turn” in the collective’s agenda.

  3. 3. Simulation of Hardening of the MahanaKhon Tower Mat Foundation

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Zakaria Kazi-tani; [2019]
    Keywords : Hydration; MahanaKhon tower; mat foundation; young concrete; temperature development; thermal stresses; cracking; fly ash; finite element analysis; COMSOL Multiphysics; Hydratation; MahanaKhon tower; bottenplatta; ung betong; temperaturutveckling; termiska spänningar; sprickbildning; flygaska; finita elementanalys; COMSOL Multiphysics;

    Abstract : Cement hydration is the result of a series of simultaneous chemical reactions occurring during the production of concrete. An excessive amount of heat is generated, which consequently may give rise to thermal stresses and cause early age cracks in concrete that may affect its structural integrity, and load bearing capacity.

  4. 4. Snow insulation effects across the Arctic : evaluating a revised snow module in LPJ-GUESS

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Alexandra Pongrácz; [2019]
    Keywords : active layer depth; Arctic; LPJ-GUESS; snow; soil temperature; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : The effect of future changes in temperature and precipitation patterns on arctic ecosystem functioning is often assessed using state-of-the-art ecosystem models. Many models however lack detailed representation of wintertime processes, as pointed out by recent studies (Wang et al. 2016, Slater and Lawrence 2013). READ MORE

  5. 5. 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
