The oxidation of methane is one such example, which is important from an environmental point of view. Methane is a potent greenhouse gas and natural and biogas vehicles need efficient catalysts to prevent slip of uncombusted fuel into the exhaust. Commercial catalysts for methane oxidation are often based on palladium or platinum. Metallic palladium, however, is easily converted to palladium oxide when the engine is operated at oxygen rich conditions. </p> <p>In this thesis, various aspects of complete methane oxidation over PdO(101) are investigated with computational methods based on density functional theory (DFT). PdO(101) is the active surface for methane oxidation, and firstly, the reaction intermediates CO and H are studied in detail. Possible pathways for H<sub>2</sub> adsorption, dissociation and eventual water formation are investigated, in connection to core-level spectroscopy experiments. Similarly, the adsorption configurations for carbon monoxide on clean and oxidized palladium are examined with a combination of DFT calculations, core-level and infrared spectroscopy. Secondly, a detailed kinetic model is constructed that describes the catalytic conversion of CH<sub>4</sub> to CO<sub>2</sub> and H<sub>2</sub><sub></sub>O over PdO(101). This is done in a first-principles microkinetics framework, where the kinetic parameters are obtained by applying density functional and transition state theory. The kinetic model provides a fundamental understanding of findings from reactor experiments, such as the rate limiting steps and poisoning behaviour, and shows qualitatively different behaviour of adsorbates on oxide as compared to metal surfaces. </p> <p>Lastly, limitations of the commonly used class of generalized gradient functionals are illustrated in the computation of several properties of adsorbates on metal oxide surfaces. These include core-level shifts and thermodynamic and reactive properties of adsorbates on the PdO(101) surface. Similarly, the description of several molecular and cooperative adsorption processes are also found to be sensitive to the applied exchange-correlation functional on the BaO(100), TiO<sub>2</sub>(110) and CeO<sub>2</sub>(111) surfaces.</p> <span class="text-normal page-content"></span><p></p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ee/kalendarium/Sidor/Lars-Henrik-Björnsson,-Energi-och-Miljö.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ee/kalendarium/Sidor/Lars-Henrik-Bj%C3%B6rnsson,-Energi-och-Milj%C3%B6.aspxLars-Henrik Björnsson, Energi och Miljö<p>FB</p><p>​Car movement patterns and the PHEV</p>Lars-Henrik Björnsson, <span style="background-color:initial">avdelningen för </span><span style="background-color:initial">Fysisk resursteori, </span><span style="background-color:initial">försvarar sin doktorsavhandling &quot;</span><span style="background-color:initial">​Car movement patterns and the PHEV</span><span style="background-color:initial">&quot;.</span> <p class="MsoNormal"> </p> <p class="MsoNormal">Huvudhandledare: Sten Karlsson, docent. </p> <p class="MsoNormal">Examinator: John Holmberg, professor. </p> <p class="MsoNormal"> </p> <p class="MsoNormal">Fakultetsopponent: <span style="background-color:initial">Patrick Jochem, Professor, Chair of Energy Economics, Institute for Industrial Production (IIP), </span><span style="background-color:initial">Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Tyskland</span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"></p> http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cse/kalendarium/Sidor/nassernowdehilic.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cse/kalendarium/Sidor/nassernowdehilic.aspxNasser Nowdehi, Data- och informationsteknik<p>HC1</p><p>On Securing Vehicular Communications: Methods and Recommendations for Secure In-vehicle and Car2X Communications .</p><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Institutioner/DoIT/Profile%20pictures/NS/Nasser.png" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />Today's vehicles contain approximately more than 100 interconnected computers (ECUs), several of which will be connected to the Internet or external devices and networks around the vehicle. In the near future vehicles will extensively communicate with their environment via Vehicle to Vehicle and Vehicle to Infrastructure (together called V2X) communications. Such level of connectivity enables car manufacturers to implement new entertainment systems and to provide safety features to decrease the number of road accidents. Moreover, authorities can deploy the traffic information provided by vehicular communications to improve the traffic management. Despite the great benefits that comes with vehicular communications, there are also risks associated with exposing a safety-critical integrated system to external networks. It has already been proved that vehicles can be remotely hacked and the safety critical functions such as braking system and steering wheel can be compromised to endanger the safety of passengers. This puts high demands on IT security and car manufacturers to secure vehicular communications. In this thesis, we propose methods and recommendations for improving the security of internal and external vehicular communications.<br /><br />The thesis is divided into two parts. In the first part, we identify weaknesses or deficiencies in the design of the ETSI V2X security standard and propose changes to fix the identified weaknesses or deficiencies. The second part of the thesis focuses on the security of the internal vehicular communications. First, in order to facilitate the implementation of security measures in in-vehicle networks, we propose an automated approach for grouping in-vehicle ECUs into domains based on different criteria. Then, we compare such an automatically generated in-vehicle network architecture with a reference architecture model to show that our approach is able to identify meaningful domains with better quality with respect to communication, safety and security. Finally, we seek to evaluate the applicability of existing CAN bus authentication solutions to a vehicular context. To this end, and in cooperation with industry, we have identified five critical requirements for an authentication solution to be used in such a context. We found that no authentication solution fulfilled all the requirements, something that indicates that the CAN bus may not be suitable for secure vehicular applications.http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cee/kalendarium/Sidor/Licentiatseminarium---Raquel-Liebana.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cee/kalendarium/Sidor/Licentiatseminarium---Raquel-Liebana.aspxRaquel Liebana, Vatten miljö teknik, BoM<p>SB-H3, Sven Hultins gata 6</p><p>Microbial Community Assembly during Aerobic Granulation</p><p>Abstract: <br /></p> <p>Environmental deterioration together with the increasingly restrictive legislation of water quality standards have led to a demand for compact, efficient and less energy consuming technologies for wastewater treatment. Aerobic granular membrane bioreactors (AGMBRs) combine the advantages of aerobic granular sludge and membrane filtration. Although recent studies have shown that AGMBRs are promising, research is needed to develop these systems. One important aspect is the development and stability of aerobic granules in the reactor. The objective of this thesis is to unravel the ecological mechanisms behind the granulation process and the resulting granular structure. <br /><br />The impact of the washout dynamics applied in sequencing batch reactors (SBRs) on the bacterial community, the microbial spatial organization in granules and the reproducibility of the granulation process were analyzed. High throughput sequencing was used to analyze the microbial community structure and dynamics during granulation. Fluorescence in-situ hybridization (FISH) analysis was performed to study the microbial spatial distribution. Results showed that the bacterial community composition of granules and the biomass in the effluent from three parallel SBRs subjected to high washout conditions and different organic loading was very similar but not identical. Retention ratios predicted the spatial location of the taxa in the granules. Bacteria having lower relative abundance in the effluent were located in the granular interior whereas bacteria growing on the granular surface were more susceptible to erosion. Using FISH analyses of intact granules, ammonia oxidising bacteria (AOB) were found in the inner locations of the granules indicating that both oxygen and ammonia were transported across/into the granule allowing aerobic metabolism also in the interior. Interestingly, the predatory bacteria Bdellovibrio sp. was found inside the granules and seemed to be preferentially attacking AOB. Moreover, the reproducibility analysis of three replicate SBRs showed some statistical differences in the reactor performance and in the microbial community diversity and structure. Both deterministic and stochastic processes seemed to be involved in the microbial community assemblage during granulation. Biodiversity decreased due to habitat specialization and competitive exclusion during the acclimatization of the sludge to the reactor conditions. When the washout dynamics were stronger the community assemblage was niche-oriented and once the selection pressures decreased, stochastic processes became more evident, especially for intermediate and rare species. Acinetobacter sp., Comamonadaceae and Rhodocyclaceae families together with the polymer producers Thauera sp., Flavobacterium sp. and the family Xanthomonadaceae seemed to have important roles during the first stages of granulation.<br /></p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/styrkeomraden/energi/kalendarium/Sidor/Fossil-free-industrial-sector.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/styrkeomraden/energi/kalendarium/Sidor/Fossil-free-industrial-sector.aspxTowards a Fossil-free Industrial Sector – Activities at Chalmers<p>Palmstedtsalen, Chalmers kårhus, Chalmersplatsen 1, Göteborg</p><p>​​The need for rapid and drastic reductions in greenhouse gas emissions is a serious challenge for society. Within the profile area Energy in a Circular Economy within Chalmers Energy Area of Advance, scientists are working on a wide range of cross-linked fields with the goal of finding enabling solutions for a rapid transition in the industrial sector, including large heat and power plants and biorefineries. This seminar provides a forum for presenting important activities at Chalmers and discussions of opportunities for further cooperation with industry, academia and institutes in the industrial sector.</p>​<br />Read more and sign up for this seminar in our English webpage <a href="/en/areas-of-advance/energy/calendar/Pages/Towards-a-Fossil-free-Industrial-Sector---R-and-D-Activities-at-Chalmers.aspx">Towards a Fossil-free Industrial Sector – Activities at Chalmers</a>. http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cse/kalendarium/Sidor/truonghoquanglic.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cse/kalendarium/Sidor/truonghoquanglic.aspxTruong Ho-Quang, Data- och informationsteknik<p>Jupiter 219</p><p>​Mining Software Modeling Practices in Open Source Software Projects</p><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Institutioner/DoIT/Profile%20pictures/SE/Truong-Quang.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />Context: In modern software development, software modeling is considered as an essential part of the software architecture and design activity. The Unified Modeling Language (UML) has become the de facto standard for software modeling in industry. Surprisingly, there are few empirical evidences on the use of UML and a lack of evidence-based guidelines for applying UML in software development. Objective: As a first step toward synthesizing practical guidelines for the use of UML, this thesis focuses on collecting a large set of OSS projects that use UML. Subsequently this thesis offers observations on the use and impacts of using UML in OSS projects. Method: We combine techniques from repository mining and image classification in order to successfully identify more than 24 000 open source projects on GitHub that together contain more than 93 000 UML models. A quantita- tive analysis and a large-scale survey have been carried out across this set of projects. Result: The results show that UML is used in OSS projects and in those projects that use UML, UML helps new contributors and is generally perceived as supportive. The most important motivation for using UML seems to be to facilitate collaboration, as teams use UML during communication and planning of joint implementation efforts. We hope researchers in the field will find data and findings from this thesis a valuable source for their empirical studies.http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ee/kalendarium/Sidor/Avfall-i-nytt-fokus-2017.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ee/kalendarium/Sidor/Avfall-i-nytt-fokus-2017.aspxAvfall i nytt fokus 2017<p>Malmö</p><p>​Nyheter och workshops kring avfall, återvinning och recirkulering står på programmet. ​</p>VÄLKOMMEN hälsar arrangörerna Waste Refinery, Chalmers tekniska högskola, IVL Svenska miljöinstitutet och RISE. <span style="background-color:initial">RE:Source är medarrangör och tillsammans med Chalmers sponsor för arrangemanget. </span><div><div><br /></div> <div>Programmets alla detaljer är inte klara men 29 mars pågår konferensen kl 10.00-17.30 och följs av middag, 30 mars startar vi kl 8.30 och avslutar 15.40. </div> <div><br /></div> <h5 class="chalmersElement-H5">Programpunkter från Chalmers tekniska högskola: </h5> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><strong>​Pilotprojektens roll i Innovationssystemet</strong> - H<span>ans Hellsmark, institutionen för Energi och miljö. </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>Aska - en</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong> </strong></span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>framtida</strong></span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong> zinkgruva?</strong> - </span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)">Karin Karlfeldt Fedje, institutionen för Bygg- och miljöteknik och Renova.</span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>Designers - gör vad för recirkulation?</strong> - </span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)">Isabel Ordonez, institutionen för Produkt- och produktionsutveckling. </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>Lärdomar från ett sekel av materialåtervinning i bilens värdekedjor</strong> - </span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)">Magnus Andersson, institutionen för Energi och miljö. </span></p> <p class="chalmersElement-P"><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>Textilåtervinningens </strong></span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>miljönytta </strong></span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>och utmaningar: </strong></span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>resursanvändning </strong></span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)"><strong>och kemikalier</strong> - </span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)">Sandra Roos, Swerea (</span><span style="background-color:initial;color:rgb(51, 51, 51)">doktorerade på institutionen för Energi och miljö i januari 2017). </span></p> <div><span style="background-color:initial"><br /></span></div> <div>OBS!

Från tävlingsvinst för kontoret 2012, till bostadsexpo i september 2017. Vallastaden är på många sätt motsatsen till den idag vanliga planeringsidén att staden tillsammans med de stora byggbolagen samordnar och gör en stadsplan. En process som gett Göteborg stadsdelar som Kvillebäcken.</p>​I Vallastaden har istället Linköping stad upprättat en stadsplan och där bestämt vilka kvaliteter i småskalighet, fastighetsindelning, hustyper och verksamheter med mera som ska finnas utifrån Okidokis tävlingsförslag. Därefter har de som vill bygga kunnat köpa en fastighet och bygga ett hus. En snabb och effektiv process där även mindre byggbolag har en möjlighet att vara med. I Vallastaden kommer det byggas cirka 1000–1500 bostäder, kontor och service. <br /><br /><a href="http://www.vallastaden2017.se/stadsdelen/">Mer information om Vallastaden och kommande utställning &gt;&gt;</a><br />http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/arch/kalendarium/Sidor/Att-vara-ute-och-cykla.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/arch/kalendarium/Sidor/Att-vara-ute-och-cykla.aspxAtt vara ute och cykla - cykeln som möjliggörare för socialt hållbar stadsutveckling<p>Foajén, Göteborgs stadsmuseum, Norra Hamngatan 12, Göteborg</p><p>​En cykel är inte bara en cykel.

Experimental testing of large-scale structures is the most reliable means to assess and improve the resilience and performance of structural systems under extreme loads. The development and use of advanced cyber-physical systems, has paved the way to enhance the existing experimental methods in a suitable and cost-effective manner. Hybrid simulation is an innovative cyber-physical testing technique in which computational models and physical components are integrated at run-time. This method overcomes many of the limitations of conventional shaking table tests while using similar equipment used for quasi-static testing. A state-of-the-art hybrid testing facility, referred to as the Multi-Axis Substructure Testing (MAST) system, has been designed, assembled and validated that is capable of simulating the complex three-dimensional time-varying boundary effects on large-scale structural components. The MAST system is unique in Australasia and is capable to serve the research community and practice, nationally and internationally. The paper presents versatile capabilities of the MAST system that will greatly advance the current state of knowledge in large-scale experimental testing.</span></p> <p></p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/om-chalmers/kalendarium/Sidor/General-Physics-Colloquium-med-Serena-Dalena.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/om-chalmers/kalendarium/Sidor/General-Physics-Colloquium-med-Serena-Dalena.aspxGeneral Physics Colloquium med Serena Dalena<p>PJ Lecture Hall, Chalmers</p><p>​Serena Dalena, Associate Editor, Physical Review Letters</p>​Title: Successful Letters in Physical Review Letters: An Editor’s perspective<br /><br />Date and time: 30 March, 13.15<br />Location: PJ Lecture Hall, Chalmershttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/mc2/kalendarium/Sidor/Assistant-Professor-Tomas-Löfwander.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/mc2/kalendarium/Sidor/Assistant-Professor-Tomas-L%C3%B6fwander.aspxInstallationsföreläsning Biträdande Professor i Teoretisk fysik Tomas Löfwander<p></p><p>​Titel: Electronic transport in graphene</p><div style="text-align:justify"><img width="203" height="237" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" src="/en/departments/mc2/calendar/Documents/tomas%20löfwander.jpg" alt="" style="height:252px;width:189px;margin:5px" /></div> <div style="text-align:justify"><strong>Abstrakt: </strong></div> <div style="text-align:left"><div>This presentation will provide an overview of our recent research into electronic transport in graphene.

Over the past four decades, FRPs have been increasingly used for strengthening and repair of bridge structures, and more recently, in the manufacture of whole/hybrid FRP bridges. Although, the short-term behaviour of FRP/steel bonded joints has been extensively studied, the subject of the long-term performance and durability has not been researched to the same degree. Today, uncertainties regarding the durability aspects of adhesively bonded FRP/steel joints present a major obstacle to their growing application. This thesis aims to deepen the understanding of the structural effects of environmental exposure conditions relevant to bridges on bonded FRP/steel joints, with a focus on predicting the mechanical response of aged joints. </span></p> <p><span>Firstly, to map out the research needs, a comprehensive state-of-the-art literature review was carried out, and the most important identified knowledge-gaps were pursued for research. An extensive experimental programme was conducted including long-term testing of bonded FRP/steel joints that were subjected to various temperature ranges, humidity levels, and cyclic exposure scenarios. Among other factors, the effects of adhesive layer thickness and type of FRP material were investigated. The results showed the importance of FRP permeability on moisture and damage distribution profile in bonded joints. In addition, freeze–thaw cycles</span><span> </span><span>were found to have no unfavourable effects on the strength of dry or preconditioned joints. Complementary material characterization tests were also conducted to study moisture diffusion kinetics. These results underlined the importance of considering the exposure history for prediction and design purposes. Furthermore, the dependency of cohesive laws of the adhesive material on environmental exposure was investigated using an innovative approach based on open-face specimens in conjunction with the J-integral analysis.</span></p> <p><span>FE simulations were incorporated to predict the mechanical response of joints after environmental ageing. Firstly, the applicability of the cohesive zone modelling approach to strength prediction of bonded FRP/steel joints was investigated.</span><span> </span><span>The results confirmed the accuracy of the predictions provided that the variation of failure modes were taken into account. Moreover, the minimum required overlap length was found to be directly proportional to the shape of cohesive laws. This finding, in combination with the environmental-dependent cohesive laws, can be employed in the design phase to ensure sufficient anchorage length after in-service exposure. Lastly, sequentially coupled moisture diffusion–fracture analysis were found to provide reasonable predictions of the mechanical behaviour of environmentally aged joints. This study provides the basis for durability-related experimental characterisation methods and predictive modelling of adhesively bonded FRP/steel joints. </span></p> <p><span> </span></p> <h6 class="chalmersElement-H6"><span>Keywords:</span><span> fibre reinforced polymer, durability, long-term performance, adhesively bonded joints, FRP/steel joints, moisture diffusion, cohesive zone modelling</span></h6> http://www.chalmers.se/sv/styrkeomraden/ikt/kalendarium/Sidor/ICSA-2017.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/styrkeomraden/ikt/kalendarium/Sidor/ICSA-2017.aspxIEEE International Conference on Software Architecture (ICSA 2017)<p>Lindholmen Science Park</p><p>​April 3-7 | Gothenburg, Sweden</p>​ <br /><a href="http://icsa-conferences.org/2017/" target="_blank"><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Areas%20of%20Advance/Information%20and%20Communication%20Technology/News%20events/Calendar/ICSA-2017_logo-260x300.jpeg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" /></a>ICSA is the premier venue for practitioners and researchers interested in software architecture, in component-based software engineering and in quality aspects of software and how these relate to the design of software architectures.

It includes a contact model with contact springs that accounts for the effect of local small-scale tread deformation. Results showed that simulated noise was sensitive to the value of the spring stiffness, primarily as it affected the total contact force. A non-linear contact spring formulation resulted in a reduction of the high-frequency content in the contact forces and simulated noise.<br /><br />Aspects of small-scale tread dynamics were evaluated by simulating the detailed contact between an elastic layer and a rough road surface using a numerical time domain contact model including non-linear contact springs to account for small-scale roughness. Contact stiffness increased as the number of contact points grew as well as the deformation of their non-linear contact springs. The results imply that dynamic properties of the local tread deformation may be of importance when simulating contact details during normal tyre/road interaction conditions, but that effects of damping could, as a first approximation, be included as an increased stiffness in a quasi-static tread model.<br /><br />The speed dependency of measured and simulated tyre/road noise was analysed. A large part of the noise had a high speed exponent, traditionally connected with air-pumping. However, the results showed that tyre vibrations can generate noise with a speed exponent that verges on what is expected from air-pumping. Due to the overlap in the speed exponents of the main generation mechanisms, they cannot be distinguished through a speed exponent analysis.<br /><br />The most important contribution of this work is an increased understanding of how the contact spring formulation affects the simulated noise. The work has also provided insights into the speed dependency of tyre/road noise generation mechanisms.</p> <div> </div></div> </div> <div> <div class="item"> <h6 class="chalmersElement-H6">Nyckelord: Tyre/road contact modelling, Air-pumping, Tyre/road contact stiffness,Tyre/road noise, Speed exponent analysis</h6> </div> </div> <p></p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/s2/kalendarium/Sidor/Oleksandr-Semeniuta,-Signals-and-Systems.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/s2/kalendarium/Sidor/Oleksandr-Semeniuta,-Signals-and-Systems.aspxOleksandr Semeniuta, Signals and Systems<p>Room EC, Hörsalsvägen 11</p><p>​Control of visually guided event-based behaviors in industrial robotic systems</p><p>​Oleksandr Semeniuta är doktorand på avdelningen System-och reglerteknik</p> <p>Diskussionsledare är Dr. Mikael Ekström, Mälardalens universitet</p> <p>Huvudhandledare är docent Petter Falkman</p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/rss/kalendarium/Sidor/Erik-Blomberg,-Rymd--och-geovetenskap.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/rss/kalendarium/Sidor/Erik-Blomberg,-Rymd--och-geovetenskap.aspxErik Blomberg, Rymd- och geovetenskap<p>EA</p><p>​Titel : Biomass Retrieval in Topographic Boreal Forest using Polarimetric and Tomographic SAR in P- and L-band</p><p><span><span><span style="display:inline-block"><span></span></span></span><span style="display:inline-block"></span>Erik Blomberg är doktorand i forskargruppen radarfjärranalys vid institutionen för rymd- och geovetenskap.<span style="display:inline-block"></span></span></p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation-Boris-Carlsson.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/fysik/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation-Boris-Carlsson.aspxBoris Carlsson, Fysik<p>PJ föreläsningssal, byggnad Origo vån 4, Fysikgården 2</p><p>Avhandlingens titel: The data perspective on chiral effective field theory.

Indeed, experimental results are understood through theories, which themselves are of less value until confronted with experiment. In this thesis I study this relationship by quantifying two key properties of theories: theoretical uncertainties and predictive power.</p> <div> </div> <p>Specifically I investigate chiral effective field theory and the precision and accuracy by which it reproduces and predicts low-energy nuclear observables. I estimate both statistical and systematic uncertainties. The conclusion is that the latter, which in my approximation originates from omitted higher-order terms in the chiral expansion, are much larger than the former. In relation to this, I investigate the order-by-order convergence up to fourth order in the chiral expansion. I find that predictions generally improve with increasing order, while the additional low-energy constants (LECs) of the interaction makes it more difficult to fully constrain the theory. Furthermore, in order to accurately reproduce properties of heavier nuclei I see indications that it is necessary to include selected experimental data from such systems directly in the fitting of the interaction.</p> <div> </div> <p>In order to perform these studies I have developed accurate and efficient methods as well as computer codes for the calculation of observables. In particular, the application of automatic differentiation for derivative calculations is shown to be crucial for the minimization procedure. These developments open up new avenues for future studies. For example, it is now possible to do extensive sensitivity analyses of the experimental data and the model; to investigate the power counting from a data perspective; and incorporate more experimental data in the fitting procedure.</p></span>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Licentiatseminarium170420.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Licentiatseminarium170420.aspxLicentiatseminarium i matematisk statistik: Jonatan Kallus<p>Pascal, Hörsalsvägen 1</p><p>​Resampling in network modeling of high-dimensional genomic data</p>​<br />Diskussionsinledare är professor Erik Sonnhammer, Stockholms universitethttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/arch/kalendarium/Sidor/TRADERS-Open-School.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/arch/kalendarium/Sidor/TRADERS-Open-School.aspxTRADERS Open School - the city could be otherwise<p>Z33 Hasselt (BE)</p><p>​TRADERS Open School is a 10-day academy that brings together art and design thinkers, practitioners and various publics to critically engage in urban processes and discourses through the lenses of agency, participation and public space. The event is premised on the notion that ‘things can be otherwise’, it acts as a challenge to rethink and conceptualise potential urban futures by way of art and design. To do this, the Open School is structured as an academy, a place for learning. Accepting that knowledge is not only held in the head but being actively constructed in situ and practice, we see the academy as moving from a celebration of genius to a focus on the creation of what Brian Eno termed ‘scenius’, the intelligence that comes from a collective ecology of thinkers.</p>​<em><img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Institutioner/arch/kalendarium/2017/TRADERS_OS_POSTERA3_340.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />The city could be otherwise</em> is both a statement and question wrapped in one.  As a statement it prompts alternatives that challenge the hegemonies, or mental blockages, that have led to accepting situations of gross economic inequality, ecological degradation and social crises.  As a question, it queries our agency as citizens: to what extent can we give shape to the ‘otherwise’—are we passive observers or active agents for change?  For designers and artists, it prompts a reflection on the state of socially engaged theory and practice in urban contexts. <br /><br />The Open School aims at a creative re-thinking of the city, trading practices and ideas, peers-pushing-peers in a place of learning and experimentation through dialogue and action.  Participants will be encouraged to take different roles and stances, questioning<em> if</em> and <em>how</em> the city can be otherwise. <br /><br />The structure of the 10 days intertwines practice and theory, established thinkers and students, emergent practices and traditional methods, in what we consider an experiential and cognitive generative dance. This dance is a key metaphor for the academy’s organisation, which creates an environment and structure for ideas and practices to come together in dialogue without an overly curated programme, instead ‘thinking on our feet’.<br /><br /><a href="http://tr-aders.eu/open-school/">The full programme will be online soon: keep a close look on our website </a><br /><br /><a href="https://www.facebook.com/TRADERS.EU/">Facebook</a><br /><br />http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cee/kalendarium/Sidor/Viktor-Bergion,-Geologi-och-geoteknik,-BoM.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cee/kalendarium/Sidor/Viktor-Bergion,-Geologi-och-geoteknik,-BoM.aspxViktor Bergion, Geologi och geoteknik, BoM<p>Sal SB-H3, Sven Hultins gata 6</p><p>​​Development of a risk-based decision model for prioritizing microbial risk mitigation measures in drinking water systems</p><span><span><br />Huvudhandledare: Prof Lars Rosén<br />Biträdande handledare: Tekn Dr Andreas Lindhe och Tekn Dr Ekaterina Sokolova.  <br />Diskussionsinledare: Docent Jacob Ottoson, Livsmedelverket.<span></span></span><span lang="SV"><span style="display:inline-block"></span></span></span><br /><style>  p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {margin-top:0cm;margin-right:0cm;margin-bottom:8.0pt;margin-left:0cm;line-height:107%;font-size:11.0pt;font-family:Calibri;} .MsoChpDefault {font-size:11.0pt;font-family:Calibri;} .MsoPapDefault {margin-bottom:8.0pt;line-height:107%;} @page WordSection1 {size:612.0pt 792.0pt;margin:70.85pt 70.85pt 70.85pt 70.85pt;} div.WordSection1 {page:WordSection1;} </style>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cee/kalendarium/Sidor/CMB-Ledarskapsdagen-2017.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/cee/kalendarium/Sidor/CMB-Ledarskapsdagen-2017.aspxCMB Ledarskapsdagen 2017: Leda förändringen – förändra ledningen<p>Chalmers Conference Centre, Chalmersplatsen 1</p><p></p><p class="chalmersElement-P"><strong>​Ledarskapsdagen 2017 sätter fokus på det nya ledarskap som måste till för att klara det höga tempo och behov av arbetskraft som råder i samhällssbyggnadsektorn.

In this thesis, I present new nanomaterials which, in my opinion, possibly will contribute to the solution of two rather important problems faced by modern society, i.e. high energy consumption and costs for medical care due to ageing population.<br />In connection with the first problem, the effectiveness of energy storage devices such as supercapacitors, to a big extent, depends on carbon nanomaterials used for accumulation of electrostatic charges. At the moment, the production of carbon materials mostly relies on unsustainable fossil fuels as precursors. I describe the fabrication of freestanding functional carbon nanofibrous (CNF) materials derived from cellulose, the most abundant renewable resource, via consecutive steps of cellulose acetate electrospinning, subsequent deacetylation to cellulose, and carbonization. I report the technologically simple and environmentally friendly method of CNF synthesis from cellulose that improves carbon yield from 13% to 20% and significantly reduces the regeneration step. The obtained CNF sheets are mechanically stable, have hydrophobic surface and consist of nitrogen-doped randomly oriented nanofibrous network.<br />Moreover, I demonstrate the prospect of effective using of several modified types of CNF-based materials as electrodes in supercapacitors. Incorporation of highly conductive carbon nanotubes (DWCNTs, MWCNTs and cvd CNTs) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) into CNF frameworks improves electrical conductivity and increases the surface area of the produced composite materials, which leads to high specific capacitance values (up to 241 F/g), cyclic stability, and power density of these materials. Despite their slightly lower specific surface area in comparison with pristine CNFs, nitrogen-doped CNF materials (4-5.6 at.% of nitrogen) had about 2.5 times higher specific capacitance due the positive effect of pseudocapacitance. These results suggest that cellulose is a suitable precursor for the synthesis of sustainable and efficient carbonaceous electrodes for supercapacitors. Functionalization methods used in this study proved to be helpful in enhancing the electrochemical performance of carbonized cellulose materials.<br />In connection with the second problem, biocompatible and electrically conductive nanostructures are viewed as very prospective scaffolds in tissue engineering (TE) field. TE approach can help to cure neurodegenerative diseases of elderly population via development of healthy replacement neural tissues or in vitro models for drug testing. Cellulose-derived biomaterials are assessed as scaffolds for the growth of neural tissue. These scaffold materials are characterized with excellent biocompatibility, nanosized topography and electrical conductivity to support adhesion, growth and differentiation of SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells. Possibility of using inks from nanofibrillated cellulose for 3D printing allows even more effective assembly of designed conductive patterns for cell guidance. The results show prolific cell attachment, proliferation and differentiation of neural cells along the guidelines.<br />In overall, the positive implementation of the cellulose-derived nanofibrous materials in the above mentioned applications suggest that the synthesis of sustainable and efficient materials based on renewable resources is a very prospective approach.

This thesis focus on improving the heat dissipation effect and interconnect performance of 3D IC integration packaging by developing carbon based nanomaterials.<br />Thermal management have been identified by the semiconductor industry as one of the major technological bottlenecks to hinder the further miniaturization of 3D IC devices, particularly in high power devices. The first part of thesis presents a comprehensive thermal management solution including nanocomposite thermal interface material (Nano-TIM), hBN heat spreader and G-CNT hybrid heatsink to address heat issue existing high power IC devices. The Nano-TIM is comprised of a silver-coated nanofiber network and indium matrix. The indium matrix contributed to media of heat conduction, while the nanofiber network defines the geometry and improves the mechanical performance. The thermal and mechanical performance of Nano-TIM is demonstrated in die attach applications in IC packaging. In addition to improve thermal interface resistance by Nano-TIM, an hBN heat spreader was developed through liquid exfoliation method to spread and dilute the heat energy generated in power chip for further cooling effect. This spreader potentially broadened the heat spreader application scenario in IC packaging due to its insulating performance. Moreover, in order to dissipate heat energy from IC microsystem, a 3D carbon based heat sink consisted of CNTs and graphene was synthesized through CVD method. The carbon based heat sink combine 1D CNTs with 2D graphene extended the excellent thermal property to three dimensions through covalent bonding. </p> <div>In the second part of thesis, it is devoted to the development of CNT-based through silicon vias (TSVs) for interconnects in 3D IC packaging. Vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VA-CNTs) with different structures were synthesized by the thermal chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method. In order to address the incompatibility with IC manufacturing processes and relatively lower electrical conductivity than metal, a series of processes including tape assisted transfer, filling solder balls into hollow structures and electroplating Cu onto CNTs bundles were developed. Accordingly, three different types of CNT-based TSVs were fabricated: densified VA-CNTs TSV, VA-CNT-Solder TSV and VA-CNT- Cu TSV. The electrical conductivity performance of the TSVs was measured using the four probe method. Among these three kinds of TSVs, VA-CNT-Cu TSV exhibits the best conductivity, around the same order of magnitude as copper. Meanwhile, the CTE of this kind of TSV is low, closely matching that of silicon substrate. In addition, to broaden the TSV application scenario, a flexible metal-CNT TSV system was integrated for future wearable microelectronic application. It demonstrated an excellent potential candidate for future flexible electronics applications.</div> <div> In summary, integrating Nano-TIM, heat spreader and micro heatsink together offered a comprehensive thermal management solution for 3D IC microsystem using carbon based materials. Carbon based TSV technology further shortened interconnection and enhanced 3D IC integration. To some extent, these findings offer a potential solution for the further miniaturization of 3D IC microsystem.</div> <div>Keywords: TIM, VA-CNTs, VA-CNT-Cu, VA-CNT-Solder, TSV, G-CNT, 3D IC integration, thermal resistance, electrical resistivity, graphene.<br /></div> <p> </p> <p><strong>Plats: MC2, Kemivägen 9, Kollektorn</strong></p>http://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/arch/kalendarium/Sidor/Embrace-the-Water.aspxhttp://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/arch/kalendarium/Sidor/Embrace-the-Water.aspxEmbrace the Water 2017<p>Gothenburg</p><p>​A Cities of the Future Conference that will take place in Gothenburg 12-14 June 2017: The conference aims at gathering urban planners and water professionals from around the globe in order to share experiences and projects on the opportunities and threats of water in modern, sustainable and innovative cities. The conference contributes to celebrating Gothenburg&#39;s 400 year jubilee and to the IWA Cities of the Future programme. Call for abstracts DEADLINE 15 DECEMBER 2016.</p><div>​Given the focus on integrated planning, the conference will aim for an even distribution between city planning staff, water professionals, and other urban professionals. Attendees and presenters will all share knowledge and experience from their own perspective ranging from academia, administration, project planning and design, or operations.<br /> <br /></div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Conference Outline </h2> <div>Water is a great quality in cities making them attractive. Water strongly influences how we can and should develop cities. Urban planning can enable more sustainable water management, as cities are facing unprecedented demands and challenges, including the uncertainty in the provision of safe water; the needs for improving living conditions; ensuring safety from floods related to climate change and natural disasters; and raising awareness for action to form water-wise communities. Water professionals and urban planners need now more than ever to share their knowledge to develop the most sustainable solutions, fostering synergies between water, energy, waste, food, and achieving liveability outcomes for the city. </div> <div> </div> <div>Traditional water planning and management methods will be challenged to become more regenerative, more risk resilient and more efficient with better and simpler management. This means urban professionals will need to find solutions that work across disciplines. This conference will focus on the kinds of efforts necessary for such integration and change to occur. <br /><br /></div> <div>Save the date: Come and join us to learn and share on “sustainable urban water” planning and design at different scales.
