  1. 1. Effect of infill density on mechanical and fire properties of polylactic acid composites produced by FDM 3D-printing technology

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

    Author : David Aronsson Edström; Oskar Lundberg; [2022]
    Keywords : 3D-printing; FDM; PLA; fire; fire engineering; cone calorimeter; tensile test; UL-94;

    Abstract : 3D-printing is a new and upcoming manufacturing technique that can significantly reduce time and material losses in production. Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is one of the most commonly used 3D-printing methods for processing conventional thermoplastic polymers. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transitioning towards a circular economy at an electronics manufacturer: Barriers and solutions for implementing a take back system in the US

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Innovationsteknik

    Author : Ellen Pellosniemi; Ebba Lundgren; [2022]
    Keywords : circular economy; e-waste take back; stakeholder barriers; B2B incentivization; solution prioritization; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : So far, over 50 million tonnes of e-waste have been generated globally (World Economic Forum, 2019), raising the question of the role of circular economy in combating climate change (Ellen MacArthur Foundation, 2021). This thesis explores the opportunities for Axis Communications to introduce a take back system for recycling decommissioned products in the US. READ MORE

  3. 3. Consequences of using Quantitative Risk Assessment as a verification tool

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Joey Öström; [2022]
    Keywords : Quantitative Risk Assessment; QRA; performance-based design; verification tool; performance solution; performance requirements; fire risk assessment; residential building; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : What are the consequences of using Quantitative risk assessment (QRA) as a verification tool? Performance-based building codes differ from prescriptive-based codes in that they define specific objectives to be met, enabling the building designer to choose which solution to use so long it meets the objectives. This master’s thesis explores the consequences of using QRA as a verification tool in comparison to existing verification methods currently in use in Australia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Image analysis on the structure of the Achilles tendon

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Linnea Andersson; [2022]
    Keywords : biomechanics; Achilles tendon; image analysis; image processing; tendons; synchrotron; computed tomography; phase contrast; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon of the human body which makes injuries of it very painful and incapacitating. A common factor of the pain are heterotopic ossifications, which are mineral deposits occurring inside the normal tendon tissue. Why and how heterotopic ossifications occur are somewhat unknown.

  5. 5. Multi-level FaaS Application Deployment Optimization

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

    Author : Junpeng Zhang; [2021-12-09]
    Keywords : Function as a Service; FaaS; deployment optimization; memory allocation; fusion; latency reduction;

    Abstract : Functions as a Service (FaaS) has become a trend in software engineering due to itssimplicity, elasticity, and cost-effectiveness. FaaS has drawn both the industry’s andresearchers’/practitioners’ attention. READ MORE
