  1. 1. Baumol’s Cost Disease in the Second Machine Age

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Nationalekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Erik Nelsson; [2019]
    Keywords : unbalanced growth computerization digitization employment; Business and Economics;

    Abstract : Baumol argued that technologically stagnant sectors with relatively low productivity growth over time will experience relatively higher prices and increased shares of total labor, and thereby slow aggregate growth. This theory, known as ‘the cost disease’, also claims that services, predominantly found in the public sector, generally are stagnant due to their perceived dependence on human labor as an input.

  2. 2. Case Data Analysis Tool for PowerFLOW

    University essay from KTH/Flygdynamik

    Author : Guillermo Díaz Vázquez; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The field of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is exponentially growing in terms of performance, robustness, and applications. The expansion of CFD also means more users and more simulations, which translates into more human errors and mistakes in the simulation set up. READ MORE

  3. 3. Models for Life Cycle Cost Estimation of Spare and Wear Parts for Urban Gondola Lift Systems : A Case Study

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för ekonomi, teknik och samhälle

    Author : András Borhidai; [2019]
    Keywords : urban gondola lift; cable car; life cycle cost calculation; spare part; wear part; reserve part;

    Abstract : Urban gondola lift systems are becoming a regular sight rather than a rarity throughout the globe. Authors attribute their increasing popularity to factors such as environmental sustainability, operational reliability and cost efficiency compared to other right-of-way transit solutions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quality-Assured Handover of Geographic Data in Building Projects​

    University essay from KTH/Geoinformatik

    Author : Hanna Gustafsson; [2019]
    Keywords : Geographic data; Handover; Management; Quality assurance; Life cycle management; GIS;

    Abstract : Relevant and quality-assured geographic data is critical information in several steps of the building process. There are many methods for quality-assuring geographic data during data collection, and in the building process, but in order for the data to be useful throughout the life cycle of a facility it is important that the data maintains reliability and quality even after the handover from a building project.

  5. 5. Testing the International Standards Organization Verification and Validation protocol for evacuation simulations-An application to the FDS+Evac model

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Yalong Wu; [2019]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Nowadays, many evacuation models exist in the market, and new models are continuously released with new features. How to assess the usability and reliability of model results becomes an issue for both developers and users. Therefore, verification and validation (V&V) protocols were introduced in the assessment process of evacuation models. READ MORE
