  1. 1. The Battle of Orléans : The design process of an audio-tactile social game with older late-blind players

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för design (DE)

    Author : Lacey Dams; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This work focuses on the creation of asocial game for older late-blind players,using participatory design.Even though the board game industry isbooming, accessible versions are scarceand since a substantial part of games areprimarily based on visual stimuli they arerather hard or impossible to translate intoa tactile version.

  2. 2. Dams in Swedish law - : An identification of the problems that can occur with the implementation of the modern environmental regulations

    University essay from KTH/Fastigheter och byggande; KTH/Fastigheter och byggande

    Author : Titti Broman; Sofia Strandell Dalius; [2019]
    Keywords : Dams; water activity; modern environmental conditions; Dammar; vattenverksamhet; moderna miljövillkor;

    Abstract : The importance of reducing people's environmental impact has become increasingly apparent since the beginning of the 21st century. According to the European Parliament, new legislation has been required to stop the deterioration of Europe's waters and to achieve "good status" for Europe's rivers, lakes and groundwater.

  3. 3. Coastal erosion in the region of Thu Bon River mouth, Vietnam

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Eric Asplund; Hanna Malmström; [2018]
    Keywords : Coastal erosion; Cua Dai Beach; longshore sediment transport; EBED; Cascade; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Coastal erosion has increased worldwide during the last decades, mostly due to human activities. Vietnam is not spared, where many places within the country suffer from beach erosion.

  4. 4. Regional Regression Models of Mean Annual Streamflow and Design Flow in a Tropical Region of Colombia.

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Anisa Zigaf Elfellah; Amanda Eriksson; [2018]
    Keywords : mean annual streamflow; extreme flow; design flow; regional regression model; ungauged watershed; hydrological homogeneous region; Gumbel distribution; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A responsible and sustainable water resources management is important. It is also crucial to take the presence of watercourses into account during design of hydraulic structures such as small dams and bridges. Doing this requires knowledge of estimates of annual streamflow and extreme flows to be used for design purposes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Finite element analysis of temperature in hardening concrete using isothermal calorimetric data

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : John Mac; [2017]
    Keywords : isoconversion; isothermal calorimetry; thermal analysis; finite element method; numerical simulation; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The produced heat in hardening concrete is of special importance to consider as the temperature rise within a large concrete structure can become such high that the structure may experience thermal cracking. With use of a simulation program that is based on the finite element method, the temperatures within the structure can be estimated to predict possible crack development. READ MORE
