    Accessibility of upcoming user interaction technologies2011In: Libro de actas DRT4ALL 2011: IV Congreso Internacional de Diseño, Redes de Investigación y Tecnología para todos, 2011, p. 162-172Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have the potential of facilitating the lives of citizens. However, experience consistently shows that user-interface innovations for consumer products are being researched and developed without taking into account the needs of people with disabilities. ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, has established a Specialist Task Force (STF) 377 on “Inclusive eServices for all: Optimizing the accessibility and use of upcoming user interaction technology”. The aimof this working group is to systematically evaluate ongoing and forthcoming interaction technologies to sketch a 10-year roadmap of foreseen technological enablers. The results of investigations using this method allowstakeholders in different stages of the research and development lifecycle of e-Services to identify and avoid potential difficulties in the design of user interfaces which could cause elderly or disabled users to experience usability issues.

    Att konsumera, bidra eller skapa: En studie om deltagande i varumärkesrelaterade aktiviteter på Facebook2013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study has researched different motivations for user participation in brand related activities on social media. The study used three types of participation to evaluate motivations for user participation. These types were the following: consuming content, contributing to existing content and creating new content. An online questionnaire was distributed on brand Facebook pages and was used as a foundation for two focus group interviews that were then held. The goal of the study was to see what motivates user participation, in order to aid companies and organizations in understanding users. We focused on six motivations from the COBRA-model. Using this model, we have categorized answers from the questionnaire and the focus groups. This has revealed which motivations that are present in different types of participation. We found that entertainment, search for information and discounts and other offers were important motivations for participation. This study also uncovered user attitudes towards different types of posts on Facebook pages, something that can prove to be useful information for companies and organizations.

    The Raw is Cooked: Data in Intelligence Practice2013In: Science, Technology and Human Values, ISSN 0162-2439, E-ISSN 1552-8251, Vol. 38, no 5, p. 655-677Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article looks at some common assumptions and associated work practices within a military intelligence community. There intelligence practitioners use the term raw data as a common sense category, as a word that describes information they want or have gained access to. The practical and organizational processes that inform the construction of the term raw data are unpacked here. Examples presented are based on interviews, field observations, and document reviews. Theoretical descriptions and models of work, for example, the intelligence cycle, construction, and the use of computer databases, assume that work in this community starts with raw data. However, this data has already been (prior) processed by the work practices, political, practical, and other decisions even before data collection occurs. The technology and attendant categories and practices instrumentalize a certain world view. The model used frames not just the collection and organization of the institution's knowledge but those categories that inform how this institution organizes, legitimizes, and enacts its work, data, and knowledge. Given the kinds of opponents nations have to face today, intelligence practitioners and those who study their work have to understand practice, action, and contexts often quite different from ones own.

    Digitalisering ― På gott och ont?: En kvalitativ studie om äldres användarupplevelser på webben2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Society today is becoming increasingly digitalised. This has led to several daily routines that used to be handled either via telephone or face to face, are nowadays being handled via the internet. Important actors in society such as authorities but also companies open their web-sites at the internet, thereby enabling more options for people to interact with them, however the elderly group (+65 years) of users is not being included in the digitalization due to various reasons. The purpose of this study is to explore whether differences in user experience can be found within the elderly group and why. Furthermore, the purpose is to contribute with more material for future development of relevant interfaces. Initially, a group of seniors answered our surveys. Thereafter, the study deepened by doing interviews and observations of seniors when interacting with an online booking system. The result presents a number of factors such as previous experiences but also age related factors that affects the informants’ interaction with the interface.

    Social Media and Negative Consumer Feedback2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Social media have established themselves as a core part of our daily lives and the phenomenon keeps growing every day. They have become a platform for both businesses and people all over the world use to communicate thoughts and show off ideas. Using platforms such as Instagram, Facebook and Twitter marketing for businesses has become a must for capturing the public eye and making your brand attractive to consumers. This is an important subject and deserves focus so I have investigated how negative feedback on social media services such as Facebook and Twitter affect the company and its customers. The end goal is to understand how these businesses should use these services as mediums to effectively approach the problem. Using social mediums is complicated process and the formulation of your response is very important. Bringing the discussion offline is the best strategy for tackling the negative feedback.

    Comparison of Data Used for Setting Occupational Exposure Limits2010In: International journal of occupational and environmental health, ISSN 1077-3525, E-ISSN 2049-3967, Vol. 16, no 3, p. 249-262Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It has previously been shown that occupational exposure limits (OELs) for the same substance can vary significantly between different standard-setters. The work presented in this paper identifies the steps in the process towards establishing an OEL and how variations in those processes could account for these differences. This study selects for further scrutiny substances for which the level of OELs vary by a factor of 100, focussing on 45 documents concerning 14 substances from eight standard-setters. Several of the OELs studied were more than 20 years old and based on outdated knowledge. Furthermore, different standard-setters sometimes based their OELs on different sets of data, and data availability alone could not explain all differences in the selection of data sets used by standard-setters. While the interpretation of key studies did not differ significantly in standard-setters' documentations, the evaluations of the key studies' quality did. Also, differences concerning the critical effect coincided with differences in the level of OELs for half of the substances.

    G som i gemenskap: En kvalitativ studie om gemenskapande i dataspel ur ett produktionsperspektiv2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

     Denna studie handlar om att undersöka hur man bygger gemenskap via dataspel, hur man tänker när man designar dessa, hur dataspelsföretagen håller ihop gemenskapen genom att uppmana till deltagande både inom dataspelen samt externa plattformar som Facebook, Twitter och diverse diskussionsforum. Studien utgår från ett produktionsperspektiv där tanken är att få veta vad de som arbetar på dataspelsföretag har för syn på gemenskap och arbetar för att skapa och bibehålla den. Till det används två begrepp, gemenskap och deltagande. Gemenskapande är en ständigt pågående process som vi människor utövar medan deltagande är något som har blivit allt vanligare inom produktionen där användarna bjuds in till att vara en del av den. Metoden som används för att ta reda på detta är semistrukturerade intervjuer med personer inom dataspelsindustrin eftersom det som undersökes krävs att man frågar någon professionell inom området. Studien visar att gemenskap inte är en primär del i början av dataspelets design men att företagen vet om hur viktig den är under dataspelets livstid. Genom att företagen själva engagerar sig i gemenskapen och genom att uppmuntra till deltagande knyter de an gemenskaper kring sig. Det skapas en så kallad fangemenskap vilket gör att användarna identifierar sig med företagen och knyter sig runt dessa och då sker gemenskapande.

    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis addresses social matters linked to social media, such as how users share their views on social issues and their reaction to these discussions in social media. In this study, we used the survey methodology for data collection. Afterwards, we analyzed the data through a thematic analysis.

    The result showed that the respondents reacted differently to contributions to social discussions on social media. The result was analyzed in two themes; theme 1 answers how users react to social discussions on social media, and theme 2 answers the question of how willing users are to participate in social discussions on social media. Some respondents believe that being able to participate in social discussions on social media gives them an opportunity to express themselves and educate their followers. Other respondents choose not to participate in these discussions as they consider that it is a waste of time and that it will have no positive impact but instead start unnecessary discussions and conflicts. Therefore, these respondents choose to keep their opinions private.

    Early Onset of Nucleate Boiling on Gas-covered Biphilic Surfaces2017In: Scientific Reports, ISSN 2045-2322, E-ISSN 2045-2322, Vol. 7, article id 2036Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    For phase-change cooling schemes for electronics, quick activation of nucleate boiling helps safeguard the electronics components from thermal shocks associated with undesired surface superheating at boiling incipience, which is of great importance to the long-term system stability and reliability. Previous experimental studies show that bubble nucleation can occur surprisingly early on mixed-wettability surfaces. In this paper, we report unambiguous evidence that such unusual bubble generation at extremely low temperatures-even below the boiling point-is induced by a significant presence of incondensable gas retained by the hydrophobic surface, which exhibits exceptional stability even surviving extensive boiling deaeration. By means of high-speed imaging, it is revealed that the consequently gassy boiling leads to unique bubble behaviour that stands in sharp contrast with that of pure vapour bubbles. Such findings agree qualitatively well with numerical simulations based on a diffuse-interface method. Moreover, the simulations further demonstrate strong thermocapillary flows accompanying growing bubbles with considerable gas contents, which is associated with heat transfer enhancement on the biphilic surface in the low-superheat region.

    Active control of a global thermocapillary instability2002In: Physics of fluids, ISSN 1070-6631, E-ISSN 1089-7666, Vol. 14, no 9, p. 3039-3045Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Active control was applied to oscillatory thermocapillary flow in an open cylindrical container filled with Silicone oil. Thermocapillary convection was driven by imposing a radial temperature gradient on a flat free surface. This is an extension of the previous work by Shiomi who applied proportional feedback control by locally heating the surface at a single position using the local temperature signal at a different position fed back through a simple algorithm. Although significant attenuation of the oscillation was detected, an uncertainty remained if global stabilization was achieved. In the present paper, two sensor/heater pairs were installed to achieve the global suppression of the oscillation. Successful global stabilization of the oscillation was achieved in a range of Marangoni number, with the best performance in the weakly nonlinear regime. Using a reliable temperature measurement method, quantitative analysis is carried out to quantify the performance of the control. The optimal values of gain and relative position of sensor/heater pairs were identified.

    Numerical investigation of feedback control of thermocapillary instability2005In: Physics of fluids, ISSN 1070-6631, E-ISSN 1089-7666, Vol. 17, no 5, article id 054107Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Control of oscillatory thermocapillary convection in an annular geometry with a horizontal free surface is investigated by means of a numerical simulation. The objective is to suppress oscillations using a feedback opposition control. The temperature is measured at certain positions on the interface, this signal is amplified and used to apply local heating on the free surface. Many features of the controlled system observed in previous experiments could be reproduced by the simulation. The numerical simulation allows us to clarify the picture of the spatial structures of the controlled oscillation, which was not accessible in the experiments. In addition to what was found in the previous experiments, the present simulations also permit us to investigate the importance of the positioning of sensors and heaters, and the influence of the properties of the heaters.

    Proportional control of oscillatory thermocapillary convection in a toy model2005In: European journal of mechanics. B, Fluids, ISSN 0997-7546, E-ISSN 1873-7390, Vol. 24, no 3, p. 296-313Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Simple model equations were formulated to examine the influence of linear feedback control on oscillations in thermocapillary convection. Limiting the solutions to have a few wavenumbers and roughly assuming the other spatial profiles, the system of equations is reduced to a set of ordinary differential equations. This toy model is able to recreate basic features of the uncontrolled system such as standing/traveling wave structures and bifurcation characteristics. The control was realized by locally heating and cooling the free surface by linearly feeding back the temperature signals measured in local positions. Implementing the proportional feedback control in this toy model, we could capture some of the essential qualitative features of the influence of the control observed in the previous experiments, including the limitation of the control. The formulation of the toy model can be used to gain physical insight in the control problem.

    Abstract [en]

    Active control of oscillatory thermocapillary flow was applied in an open cylindrical container filled with silicone oil. Thermocapillary convection was driven by imposing a radial temperature gradient on a flat free surface. The control was realized by locally heating the surface at a single position using the local temperature signal at a different position fed back through a simple algorithm. Significant attenuation of the oscillation was achieved in a wide range of supercritical Marangoni numbers, with the best performance in the weakly non-linear regime. Simultaneously measuring the temperature oscillation at two positions gives us a good insight in how the control influences the whole temperature field on the free surface. Quantitative analysis was done to characterize the optimal feedback amplification and the required power.

    Feedback control of oscillatory thermocapillary convection in a half-zone liquid bridge2003In: Journal of Fluid Mechanics, ISSN 0022-1120, E-ISSN 1469-7645, Vol. 496, p. 193-211Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Active feedback control was applied to suppress oscillations in thermocapillary convection in a half-zone liquid bridge. The experiment is on a unit-aspect-ratio liquid bridge where the most unstable azimuthal mode has wavenumber 2 when control is absent. Active control was realized by locally modifying the surface temperature using the local temperature measured at different locations fed back through a simple control law. The performance of the control process was quantified by analysing local temperature signals, and the flow structure was simultaneously identified by flow visualization. With optimal placement of sensors and heaters, proportional control can raise the critical Marangoni number by more than 40%. The amplitude of the oscillation can be suppressed to less than 30% of the initial value for a wide range of Marangoni number, up to 90% of the critical value. The proportional control was tested for a period-doubling state and it stabilized the oscillation to a periodic state. Weakly nonlinear control was applied by adding a cubic term to the control law to improve the performance of the control and alter the bifurcation characteristics.

    Low dimensional heat and mass transport in carbon nanotubes2010In: Proceedings of the ASME Micro/Nanoscale Heat and Mass Transfer International Conference 2009, MNHMT2009, 2010, p. 337-346Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This report covers various issues related to heat and mass transport in carbon nanotubes. Heat and mass transport under quasi-one-dimensional confinement has been investigated using molecular dynamics simulations. It is shown that the quasi-ballistic heat conduction manifests in the length and diameter dependences of carbon nanotube thermal conductance. Such quasi-ballistic nature of carbon nanotube heat conduction also influences the thermal boundary conductance between carbon nanotubes and the surrounding materials. The quasi-one-dimensional structure also influences the mass transport of water through carbon nanotubes. The confinement gives rise to strongly directional dynamic properties of water. Here, it is demonstrated that the confined water can be efficiently transported by using the temperature gradient. Furthermore, the simulations reveal the diameter-dependent anisotropic dielectric properties, which could be used to identify intrusion of water into carbon nanotubes.

    Morphology diagram of thermal dendritic solidification by means of phase-field models in two and three dimensions2006In: Journal of Crystal Growth, ISSN 0022-0248, E-ISSN 1873-5002, Vol. 296, no 1, p. 58-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We have determined morphology diagrams in two and three dimensions for two different phase-field models [A.A Wheeler, B.T. Murray, R.J. Schaefer, Physica D 66 (1993) 243; A. Karma, W.-J. Rappel, Phys. Rev. E 57 (1998) 4323] for the parameters undercooling and anisotropy of surface tension. The comparison with analytical predictions show a qualitative correspondence, however, the predicted shape of the morphology boundary differs significantly from the shape found in our simulations. The two investigated models show the same quantitative behavior. Our simulations in 3D have shown that the shape of the morphology boundary is qualitatively similar to the one in 2D. However, we find that the border is shifted by an amount of 0.3% on the anisotropy axis. Our simulated 3D structures show a qualitative correspondence to the ones we have found in in situ experiments with xenon.

    Rätt information vid rätt tillfälle The right information at the right time: En studie av individanpassning av informationsåtkomst på webbplatser An essay on personalization of information access on websites2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The subject of this essay is active personalization of information access. Its main goals are to make it easier for developers to create new, customized solutions for the web. The essay tries to find an answer to the question if personalization of information-access makes it easier for the user to find the information they need. The researchers developed a personalized-access prototype of the Swedish Tax Agency’s website and, through observations compared it with the original. The researchers applied the think-aloud-method in five observations documented as video recordings and observation schedules. In addition, a follow-up with a questionnaire was made after each observation in order to collect additional qualitative data. The observations showed that although the respondents found the information quickly at the Swedish Tax Agency’s website, they experienced the prototype as easier to use. The conclusion is that active personalization can make it easier for the users to find the right information, and that a prerequisite for creating an active personalization is that it takes better into account the user's needs by means of contextualization, categorization and filtering.

    SH Karriär: Framtagning av designförslag till visningsvy för karriärforum2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This report describes the implementation for re-designing a career forum called SH Karriär, that has been working since fall 2011.  SH Karriär has in the current state experienced that students at Södertörn University don’t return to the career forum, which initiated a user study to evaluate the issue. The goal was to produce a design proposal for the career forum that presents their range of services in a representative manner.  The re- design allows users to get a clearer view of the content presented on the career forum and creates an interest in revisiting after registering at SH Karriär.

    Serious gaming as a tool to facilitate inclusive business; a review of untapped potential2019In: Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, ISSN 1877-3435, E-ISSN 1877-3443, Vol. 41, p. 31-37Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Inclusive Business (IB) is increasingly popular as a way to address the sustainable development goals (SDG) by including the poor in business. While the IB model is commonly believed capable of making a real impact on poverty reduction, it is not without critique. With the empirical evidence still largely lacking, and with continued power imbalances and knowledge disparity among actors, the question of how much IB as a top-down business-led approach can push towards the SDG agenda remains unanswered. New inclusive business models need to be developed, based on inclusive decision-making throughout the value chain. Here, we show the untapped potential of serious gaming, that is, games for serious purposes rather than entertainment, as a ‘truly’ inclusive approach to facilitate IB. © 2019 The Authors

    Abstract [en]

    The use of GPS technology has during the last couple of years made significant progress. Today GPS is a standard function in modern cellphones. The GPS function in the cellphones enables tracking and is also one of the fundamental building stones in many smartphone applications. This essay investigates how users are affected by the GPS function in modern smartphones.

    Technology is always changing, smartphones and GPS are no exceptions. During the last year the sales and usage of smartphones has increased significantly. As the Internet gets more and more available and people have the possibility to go online with their mobile phones, the usage of smartphone applications also have increased. As of this, applications are now a well-known concept. Many applications need location data in order to function. It’s the smartphones GPS-functionality, built in to whatever application that provides data for positioning. Different social media provides users with their location, which can be used in status updates. A question that often comes up is about the personal integrity and monitoring that follows with GPS tracking. In this essay smartphone users share their comments about the technology. The primary advantages and disadvantages are discussed in proportions to each other.

    Cubieo: Observations of Explorative User Behavior with an Abstract Tangible Interface2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Recent years have shown a broad spectra of tangible interfaces or TUI's, based upon interaction with music, but also other interfaces containing ubiquitous computing. This is an interesting field due to how engaging music can be and work as connector between people. But the field of human computer interaction has some explorational properties. This paper presents an idea of abstraction with a tangible interface for creating music. The idea behind abstraction of the interface is to engage the user(s) in exploring the artifact, rather than explaining the artifact to the user what can and cannot be done with the artifact.

    A modelling study of evolving particle-laden turbulent pipe-flow2009In: Turbulence, Heat And Mass Transfer 6, Begell House , 2009, p. 713-716Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An Eulerian turbulent two phase flow model in cylindrical coordinates was developed in order to study evolving turbulent gas particle flows in a downward pipe flow. The model takes the feedback of the particles into account. Simulations shows good agreement with experiments and showed that the pipe length required for particle laden turbulent pipe flow to become fully developed is four times longer than for unladen flows, even for rather low mass loadings. The accumulation of particles in the near wall region showed a nonmonotonic behaviour and was found to be strongest for St=0.5.

    Abstract [en]

    An Eulerian turbulent two phase flow model using kinetic theory ofgranular flows for the particle phase was developed in order to studyevolving upward turbulent gas particle flows in a pipe. Themodel takes the feedback of the particles into account and its resultsagree well with experiments. Simulations show that the pipe length required for particle laden turbulent flow to become fully developed is up to five times longer than an unladen flow. To increase theunderstanding of the dependence of the development length on particlediameter a simple model for the expected development length wasderived. It shows that the development length becomes shorter forincreasing particle diameters, which agrees with simulations up to aparticle diameter of 100 μm. Thereafter the development lengthbecomes longer again for increasing particle diameters because largerparticles need a longer time to adjust to the velocity of the carrierphase.

    Deriving fluid-particle correlation closures for Eulerian two-fluid models through use of Langevin equations2011In: European journal of mechanics. B, Fluids, ISSN 0997-7546, E-ISSN 1873-7390, Vol. 30, no 3, p. 275-280Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The correlation correlation between the fluctuating particle and gas velocity in isotropic turbulence is studied with a set of stochastic differential equations taking into account both particle-particle collisions and the particle feedback on the turbulence. The principal aim of this work is to use the Langevin equations to formulate closures for two-fluid gas-particle flow models. Using Ito calculus we derived solutions for the turbulent kinetic energy of the particle phase and the particle-gas velocity correlations. If particle-particle collisions and particle feedback on the turbulence are neglected the new relations approach the ones derived by Tchen and Hinze but if these effects are included additional terms in the relations appear. In this study we only use a very simple model for the particle-particle collisions. The new relation and the classical relation of Tchen and Hinze for the particle turbulent kinetic energy as well as a relation based on the kinetic theory of granular flows have been implemented in a two-fluid model for turbulent gas-particle flow in a channel in order to make comparison for different particle Stokes numbers. Results show that while the two-fluid model using Hinze's relations only gives good results for small Stokes numbers, the new relation yields significant improvements for a large range of Stokes numbers.

    Modelling of turbulent gas-particle flows with focus on two-way coupling effects on turbophoresis2012In: Powder Technology, ISSN 0032-5910, E-ISSN 1873-328X, Vol. 224, p. 36-45Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An Eulerian model was developed for turbulent gas-particle flow that takes into account the influence of particles on the gas-phase turbulence. For the description of the particle-phase stress the kinetic theory of granular flow and the simpler Hinze model were adopted. A K-ω model was used as the gas phase turbulence model. The difference between one- and two-way coupling was investigated for different particle volume fractions and particle diameters. It was found that particles with a much higher density than the fluid substantially affect the gas-phase in turbulent channel flow for particle volume fractions as low as 10 -4. The models with the particle-phase stress described by the kinetic theory of granular flow and the simpler Hinze model produce similar results for particles with small response times but deviate for larger response times. The study shows that two-way coupling and the turbophoretic effect must be taken into account in models even at relatively low particle volume fractions.

    Färgkonnotationer i spel: Hur val av färg påverkar hur vi upplever en spelkaraktär2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this bachelor thesis is to identify the relationship between color and semiotics and how a person’s opinon, regarding a game character’s different characteristics, can be affected by the use of various colors. Prior to this study people were asked, through an online survey, to write down words that they associated with different colors. The colors were then divided into four different groups depending on whether they had been associated with positive-strong words, positive-weak words, negative-strong words or negative-weak words. In order to further shed light on the effect of colors, the four palettes, consisting of the colors associated with the different words, were then used separately to give color to two characters: a man and a woman. People were then asked to describe what kind of characteristics they felt that the different color versions of the characters portrayed and if they believed that there was a link between colors and how we view different characters’ personalities. The results showed that all of the respondents believed that such link existed and showed different reactions towards the characters’ images depending on what colors were used while creating them. The majority associated an intensive shade of red with powerful and slightly negative personality traits while bright pastel colors such as light green, pink and sky blue had a tendency to make the characters appear more naive and childish. The results also showed that darker, dusty shades of grey and brown gave the characters a more negative and weak expression.

    Regional Environmental Governance and Avenues for the Ecosystem Approach to management in the Baltic Sea Area2017Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis explores the avenues for the ecosystem approach to management in the Baltic Sea Region. This region is one of the most contaminated water bodies in the world, although the first Regional Seas Convention was created here and theregion has a long history of cooperation and environmental protection. The current environmental governance arrangements are examined with specific focuson governance structures, cross-sectoral integration and ecological boundaries.The ecosystem approach to management as both a tool and vision of holistic management of natural resources is traced through the evolution of environmental governance, as well as its manifestation in contemporary environmental policies in the region. It is found that the major EU directives, as well as HELCOM polices, promote the ecosystem approach and that its presence has increased inrecent years; it is now the major guiding principle in European marine governance. However, the governance structures impede implementation indifferent ways. The environmental problem areas in the region all require different governance arrangements, thus obstructing a holistic approach. The environmental problems per se also affect each other, necessitating far-reaching sectoral integration and cross-border cooperation, which at present is the major obstacle regarding implementation. The contemporary trends combining solid regionalisation through HELCOM with increased Europeanisation and macro regionalisation by different EU initiatives offer some promise, but the cross sectoral impediments must be resolved if the ecosystem approach is to become apractical approach and not just a policy principle.

    Confined and Condemned: The Impact a Restricted User Interface Has on the Player Experience in Survival Horror Games2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, we will explore how a restricted user interface affects the player experience in survival horror games. To test this, we created a digital survival horror game. The restricted user interface in the prototype resides in the player controller who has access to five different user interface elements. These elements are health, revolver, flashlight, compass and a watch. The results showed that the restriction and making the user interface diegetic did affect the player experience. This was presented through dividing the participant's experiences with the prototype in four categories: Challenge, Analytical, Safety and Control. Participant’s enjoyed the added challenge from the restricted user interface which also helped promote the horror experience. As a drawback, a restricted user interface resulted in participants having a harder time learning the game and understanding certain game mechanics and elements.

    Initial rapid wetting in metallic systems2013In: Acta Materialia, ISSN 1359-6454, E-ISSN 1873-2453, Vol. 61, no 14, p. 5375-5386Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The initial rapid wetting of a solid surface by a liquid phase is an important step in many industrial processes. Liquid-phase sintering of powder metallurgical steels is one such industrial process, where metallic powders of micrometer size are used. Investigating the dynamic wetting of a high-temperature metallic drop of micrometer size experimentally is very challenging. Here, a phase-field-based numerical model is first implemented and verified by accurately capturing the initial dynamic wetting of millimeter-sized metal drops and then the model is extended to predict the dynamic wetting of a micrometer-sized metal drop. We found, in accordance with recent observations, that contact line friction is required for accurate simulation of dynamic wetting. Our results predict the wetting time for a micrometer-sized metal drop and also indicate that the dynamic wetting patterns at the micro- and millimeter length scales are qualitatively similar. We also found that the wetting process is much faster for a micrometer-sized metal drop compared to a millimeter-sized metal drop.

    Behaviour of master alloy during sintering of PM steels: redistribution and dimensional variations2015In: Powder Metallurgy, ISSN 0032-5899, E-ISSN 1743-2901, Vol. 58, no 2, p. 133-141Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The addition of alloying elements in low alloyed PM steels in the form of a master alloy gives the advantage of introducing oxidation sensitive but less expensive elements and also allows manipulation in composition adjustment to achieve desired properties. In this work, interrupted sintering trials of the Fe-2MA-0.5C (%) (MA = Cu based master alloy) are performed. The behaviour of the liquid forming master alloy, for instance in terms of liquid phase formation, alloying element redistribution and effect on the dimensional changes, is investigated. The results show that master alloy particles melt over a range of temperature, which is also supported by the thermodynamic calculations. The low swelling in the master alloy system, compared to a reference system of Fe-2Cu-0.5C, is attributed to the progressive melting of the master alloy. The mean diffusion distance of Cu in Fe at the interparticle boundaries is 5.8 mu m after 34 min of isothermal holding.

    Cu redistribution during sintering of Fe–2Cu and Fe–2Cu–0·5C compacts2014In: Powder Metallurgy, ISSN 0032-5899, E-ISSN 1743-2901, Vol. 57, no 5, p. 373-379Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The effective use of alloying elements in powder metallurgical steels requires a deep understanding of their redistribution kinetics during sintering. In this work, interrupted sintering trials of Fe–2Cu and Fe–2Cu–0·5C compacts were performed. Moreover, diffusion simulations of Cu in γ-Fe using Dictra were performed. It is found that transient liquid phase penetrates the Fe interparticle and grain boundaries in less than 3 min of holding time. However, C addition limits the penetration of liquid Cu, particularly into grain boundaries of large Fe particles. The results also show that the mean diffusion distance of Cu in γ-Fe in the C added system is slightly lower than that in the C-free system at 3 min of holding time; however, after 33 min, the mean diffusion distance is similar in both systems. The diffusion distances of Cu in γ-Fe, predicted by Dictra, are in good agreement with the measured values.

    Investigation of Cu distribution and porosity in Fe-2Cu and Fe-2Cu-0.5C compacts2013In: International Powder Metallurgy Congress and Exhibition, Euro PM 2013, EPMA , 2013, Vol. 2, p. 291-296Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The distribution of the alloying element Cu in steel compacts is important in determining the properties of the sintered products. In this work, mixtures of Fe-2Cu and Fe-2Cu-0.5C were compacted at 600 MPa and sintered at 1120oC for the holding times of ts= 3, 13, 23, and 33 min. Dilatometry and light optical microscopy is used to investigate porosity, Cu distribution and its effect on the dimensional changes during sintering. The result shows that the molten Cu penetrates into the Fe interparticle and grain boundaries in less then 3 min holding time at 1120°C, however C addition hinders the liquid penetration of Cu. Furthermore, it is found that the C-added compact has lower volume expansion and porosity compared to the C-free system, after 33 min of holding time at 1120°C.

    Modeling of the primary rearrangement stage of liquid phase sintering2016In: Modelling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering, ISSN 0965-0393, E-ISSN 1361-651X, Vol. 24, no 7, article id 075009Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The dimensional variations during the rearrangement stage of liquid phase sintering could have a detrimental effect on the dimensional tolerances of the sintered product. A numerical approach to model the liquid phase penetration into interparticle boundaries and the accompanied dimensional variations during the primary rearrangement stage of liquid phase sintering is presented. The coupled system of the Cahn-Hilliard and the Navier-Stokes equations is used to model the penetration of the liquid phase, whereas the rearrangement of the solid particles due to capillary forces is modeled using the equilibrium equation for a linear elastic material. The simulations are performed using realistic physical properties of the phases involved and the effect of green density, wettability and amount of liquid phase is also incorporated in the model. In the first step, the kinetics of the liquid phase penetration and the rearrangement of solid particles connected by a liquid bridge is modeled. The predicted and the calculated (analytical) results are compared in order to validate the numerical model. The numerical model is then extended to simulate the dimensional changes during primary rearrangement stage and a qualitative match with the published experimental data is achieved.

    Mainstream cognitive neuroscience has begun to accept the idea of embodied mind, which assumes that the human mind is fundamentally constituted by the dynamical interactions of the brain, body, and the environment. In today’s paradigm of naturalistic neurosciences, subjects are exposed to rich contexts, such as video sequences or entire films, under relatively controlled conditions, against which researchers can interpret changes in neural responses within a time window. However, from the point of view of radical embodied cognitive neuroscience, the increasing complexity alone will not suffice as the explanatory apparatus for dynamical embodiment and situatedness of the mind. We suggest that narrative enactive systems with dynamically adaptive content as stimuli,may serve better to account for the embodied mind engaged with the surrounding world. Among the ensuing challenges for neuroimaging studies is how to interpret brain data against broad temporal contexts of previous experiences that condition the unfolding experience of nowness. We propose means to tackle this issue, as well as ways to limit the exponentially growing combinatoria of narrative paths to a controllable number.

    Abstract [en]

    As part of an internship at Ericsson, this report was written to enhance the understanding of how it is to develop a system that is well established at the workplace. To improve an already existing system is not always as easy as many developers may think. In this report the pros and cons of developing an already existing system has been researched and analyzed. Do note that the results are only from one development of a specific system and that comparison of other developments has been made from other reports and not from experiencing it firsthand. It was found that the choices made can have an impact on further developing and it is important to write down what has been done. Writing down why you choose to do something may help you further down the process why you did what you did.
