  1. 1. Homeownership, the production of urban sprawl and an unexpected Nightingale

    University essay from Malmö universitet/Kultur och samhälle

    Author : Marvin Sommer; [2020]
    Keywords : housing studies; path dependency; critical junctures; historical institutionalism; gradual change; urbanisation; suburbanisation; Australia; Melbourne; Nightingale Housing;

    Abstract : Homeownership and suburbanisation are two sides of the same coin in the context of Australia. This thesis explores the housing system that facilitates homeownership under a framework of institutional path dependence and how that has facilitated spatial patterns of suburbanization in contemporary Melbourne.

  2. 2. Relating early Human evolution to late Miocene - early Pliocene climate change

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Tika van Galen; [2020]
    Keywords : climate; evolution; climate change; hominins; bipedal locomotion; late Miocene; Pliocene;

    Abstract : Human evolution has been linked to climate change multiple times in the literature. One of the more well-known theories is the ‘savannah’ theory, which states that walking upright became an advantageous character when climate in Africa changed causing drier environments, changing woodlands to savannahs.

  3. 3. Sustainability for Whom? The discursive framing of ‘sustainable biofuels’ in the EU and Indonesia

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Statsvetenskapliga institutionen

    Author : Alexia Fridén; [2019]
    Keywords : European Union; renewable energy; Indonesia; palm oil; discourse analysis; Law and Political Science;

    Abstract : In order to transform the fossil fuel dependent transport sector the promotion of biofuels has been crucial in the European Union’s transition towards climate neutrality. To ensure the sustainability of biofuels the European Commission published a Delegated Act on March 13th 2019, proposing the gradual phase-out of high emitting biofuels that may cause indirect land use change (ILUC) – one of them being palm oil.

  4. 4. High Temperature Tribology in Hot Stamping

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Evan Kurnia; [2019]
    Keywords : high temperature tribology; hot stamping; acoustic emission; condition monitoring; hardfacing;

    Abstract : Many automotive components are made of Al-Si coated ultra-high strength boron steel (UHSS) and are produced by hot stamping process. In this process, the workpiece is heated to an austenitizing temperature and is then formed and quenched simultaneously between the tools to achieve the desired shape and high strength. READ MORE

  5. 5. Observing phase changes in real time on ultrathin Iron oxide surfaces

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

    Author : Harald Wallander; [2019]
    Keywords : CO oxidation; platinum; iron oxides; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Studying catalysts under such non-equilibrium conditions is a step towards approaching more realistic reaction conditions for working catalysts. Reactivity during phase changes of ultra-thin FeO2 films grown on Pt(111) are studied in situ with Ambient Pressure X-ray Photo Emission Spectroscopy and Quadrupole Mass Spectrometry, while running the CO oxidation reaction at 160°C and 0:6 mbar.
