  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. Russia's exercise of power : A comparative case study of Russia's use of command power, soft power and smart power in Georgia and Ukraine

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för samhällsstudier (SS)

    Author : Linnea Nilsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Russia; dominant countries; foreign policy; exercise of power; Ukraine; Georgia; conflict; command power; soft power and smart power;

    Abstract : Despite a vast research of Russia’s means of power, including its military interventions in Georgia and Ukraine, no comprehensive comparison of Russia’s exercise of power in Georgia and Ukraine has been accomplished, even though they are the most prominent cases of post-Soviet states that have been subjects for Russian military aggression. This study compares the forms of power Russia has been using to implement its foreign policy objectives in Ukraine and Georgia, in order to identify Russia’s power-related behavior and strategies, through an abductive qualitative approach with a comparative method.

  3. 3. Automatic post-fault analysis based on disturbance data stored in substation devices : Approach towards the preventive maintenance

    University essay from KTH/Hälsoinformatik och logistik; KTH/Hälsoinformatik och logistik

    Author : Riad Yalda; Miroslav Urosevic; [2019]
    Keywords : COMTRADE file; preventive maintenance; relay protection; automatic post-fault analysis; IEC 61850; wavelet transform.; COMTRADE filer; förebyggande underhåll; reläskydd; automatisk efterfelsanalys; IEC 61850; wavelettransform.;

    Abstract : This report studies the possibilities of minimizing unplanned maintenance work and improving the availability of power supply by enabling preventive maintenance in power systems, without having to make additional investments in the existing systems. This was done using information from COMTRADE files (disturbance recording files) that are created in the event of a fault in the power system. READ MORE

  4. 4. Inevitable Algorimages : The Necropolitical Infrastructure of YouTube's Digital Dispositif

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för mediestudier

    Author : Leo Hansson Nilson; [2019]
    Keywords : YouTube; dispositif; control; power; archive; subjectification; algorithms; database; interface; necropolitics; infrastructure; mode of production; protocol; capitalism; machines; spectacle;

    Abstract : This thesis explores the relation between technology and the social, how they determine and naturalize each other, by examining YouTube's socio-technical infrastructure. YouTube is theorized as a dispositif that produces regimes of knowledge, power and subjectification within "control societies" characterized by an informational mode of production. READ MORE

  5. 5. Swedish Iron Law of Oligarchy : Swedish social networks and strategical positions in Russia, the transitional period of 1991-1994
