As the number of projects have increased, there are so many that there is a possibility that knowledgegenerated in the projects does not reach subsequent projects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Self-levelling Platform Concept for a Winch-based, Single Point Absorbing, Wave Energy Converter

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Avd.); KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Avd.); KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Avd.)

    Author : Anton Bergman; Robin Eriksson; Lars-Fredrik Grahn; [2020]
    Keywords : Point absorbing; Self-levelling; Wave power; Winch-based; Nivellerande; Punktabsorberande; Vågkraft; Vinschbaserat;

    Abstract : This report covers a bachelor thesis project to design a concept for a levelling system to a point absorbing wave energy converter that uses a winch with a chain, which has restricted capabilities to bending and thus requires a system which compensates for this. First of all, a literature study was made to see if there were any technologies that could be used, and also a wide search for information about the wave conditions in the Baltic sea were performed to find what requirements would be necessary for the concept to be able to withstand the conditions faced there.

    Author : Martin Lindahl; [2020]
    Keywords : Radicarbon dating; C-14; Bayesian analysis; OxCal; Sandby borg; Iron age; Öland;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses radiocarbon (C-14) dating of bioarcheological finds from Sandby borg, an iron-age ring fort on the east coast of the Baltic Sea island of Öland, Sweden. Archaeological evidence suggests that Sandby borg was used during the European migration period and that its main period of usage was terminated by an isolated incidence of inter-personal violence where the inhabitants were killed or abducted.

    Author : Nora Ottander; [2020]
    Keywords : turbiditet; fosfor; sensor; transportberäkning; övergödning;

    Abstract : Large areas in the Baltic Sea suffer from eutrophication, due to excessive input of nutrients, mostly nitrogen and phosphorus, from surrounding coasts. The transfer of phosphorus is mostly riverine. READ MORE

  5. 5. Västergarn Boat Rivets in Context : Case Study : The Missing Boatyard

    Abstract : Gotland has a rich material cultural heritage from the Stone Age to the Middle Ages thanks to the island's strategic location in the middle of the Baltic Sea; especially true for the Viking Age when Gotlanders had extensive trade contacts with the east dating from the mid 12th century and Gotland’s economy was dominated by such contacts. This essay deals with Gotland's maritime infrastructure and its development between about 1100 and 1400 based on a case study of boat rivets from the medieval settlement of Västergarn. READ MORE
