  1. 1. Field study of the drought’s impact on feeding strategy and biological parameters in early lactation dairy cattle

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Animal Nutrition and Management

    Author : Mikaela Würtz; [2019]
    Keywords : dairy cattle; drought; energy balance; feeding; metabolism;

    Abstract : The summer of 2018 was unusually warm and dry. For animal production, this resulted in poor pastures, reduced harvests of crops, such as roughage and grains, and increased risk for heat stress in the animals. The drought led to problems as in shortage of animal feed, which made the feeding of dairy cattle difficult. READ MORE

  2. 2. Fire Safety of Facades

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Bogdan-Grigore Branisteanu-Albulescu; [2019]
    Keywords : polystyrene; graphene; façade; pyrolysis; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Façade fires are a big concern due to past incidents and the large number of victims encountered. Vertical flame spread mechanism specific to this type of fires is a complex phenomenon with parameters that are often difficult to be coupled. READ MORE

  3. 3. Costly Remedial Actions Coordination

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Quentin Willaime; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The energy sector is evolving and the role of the Transmission System Operator (TSO)must adapt to these new changes. In fact, the energy transition modies both the natureof the production sources by integrating intermittent energies and the classical structureof the grid, going from a centralized topology to a distributed topology.

  4. 4. Reindeer induced changes in vegetation composition and plant traits on a tundra-forest border

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Femke Pijcke; [2019]
    Keywords : physical geography; ecosystem analysis; plant functional traits; nutrient allocation; grazing; reindeer; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus) are the most common large herbivores in the arctic. With a habitat spreading over the entire circumpolar region, they can have a substantial effect on plant species composition and ecosystem processes and functions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Weighing Machine Learning Algorithms for Accounting RWISs Characteristics in METRo : A comparison of Random Forest, Deep Learning & kNN

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap och medieteknik (DM)

    Author : Jesper Landmér Pedersen; [2019]
    Keywords : machine learning; neural network; random forest; k-nearest neighbour; model of the environment and temperature of roads;

    Abstract : The numerical model to forecast road conditions, Model of the Environment and Temperature of Roads (METRo), laid the foundation of solving the energy balance and calculating the temperature evolution of roads. METRo does this by providing a numerical modelling system making use of Road Weather Information Stations (RWIS) and meteorological projections. READ MORE
