  1. 1. Backshore Once Offshored Manufacturing? : Exploring Sustainability as a Driver for Backshoring Decisions in Sweden

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Valeria Bracamonte Nuñez; [2022]
    Keywords : offshoring; backshoring; sustainability; environmental system analysis tools; environmental decision making; Swedish automotive industry and global steel industry;

    Abstract : This master thesis has been conducted for Hanza Holding AB which is a global company with production facilities grouped into local clusters in proximity to its clients. The company has experienced an increased demand from companies seeking to relocate their production back to their home countries to be closer to their end markets. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reactivity increasement of prehydrolysis kraft pulp from Acacia crassicarpa and Eucalyptus hybrids

    University essay from KTH/Träkemi och massateknologi

    Author : Edward Tandy; [2022]
    Keywords : Acacia crassicarpa; Eucalyptus hybrids; Pentosan removal; Pulp yield; Prehydrolysis kraft pulp; Reactivity; Acacia crassicarpa; Eucalyptushybrider; Förhydrolyserad kraftmassa; Massautbyte; Pentosan; Reaktivitet;

    Abstract : Syftet med detta examensarbete var att öka reaktiviteten hos förhydrolyserad kraftmassa genom att använda tidigare förhydrolysat och svavelsyra under förhydrolysen. Först bestämdes den kemiska sammansättningen av två olika vedråvaror (Acacia crassicarpa och Eucalyptushybrider) för att observera och korrelera med förhydrolysprocessen. READ MORE

  3. 3. Small Satellite Design for High Sensitivity Magnetic Measurements

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Noel Sebastian Janes; [2022]
    Keywords : Magnetic Cleanliness; FORESAIL; CubeSats; High Sensitivity Magnetic Measurements; Small Satellite;

    Abstract : The magnetic cleanliness of a spacecraft during magnetic measurements is an important aspect in the design of many space science missions. The adequate reduction or removal of the spacecraft's magnetic disturbance plays a vital role in allowing the ambient magnetic field to be measured with the required accuracy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Spatial Statistical Modelling of Insurance Claim Frequency

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Daniel Faller; [2022]
    Keywords : Insurance risk; claim frequency; Markov chain Monte Carlo MCMC ; Riemann manifold Metropolis adjusted Langevin algorithm MMALA ; spatial statistics; Gaussian Markov random field GMRF ; preconditioned Crank Nicolson Langevin algorithm pCNL ; Gibbs sampling; Bayesian hierarchical modelling; high dimensional; shrinkage prior; horseshoe prior; regularisation.; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : In this thesis a fully Bayesian hierarchical model that estimates the number of aggregated insurance claims per year for non-life insurances is constructed using Markov chain Monte Carlo based inference with Riemannian Langevin diffusion. Some versions of the model incorporate a spatial effect, viewed as the relative spatial insurance risk that originates from a policyholder's geographical location and where the relative spatial insurance risk is modelled as a continuous spatial field.

  5. 5. Timber pile-supported road embankment : Numerical and analytical analysis of field monitoring project E4 Råneå

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Geoteknologi

    Author : Kent Nystedt; [2022]
    Keywords : Geosynthetic reinforcement; Geosynthetic reinforced pile supported embankment; Pile distance; Embankment height; Finite element method; Pile efficacy;

    Abstract : The previous E4 Råneå road embankment was prone to flooding. Risk of flooding in combination with settlements of the road due to the weak underlying sulphide soil was problematic. The Swedish Transportation Administration improved the length section E4 Råneå by rebuilding the road using the method light embankment piling. READ MORE
