Research has been mostly conducted either on specific sectors, or specific resources. A research field that deals with these questions is called Urban Metabolism, and the few studies made provide coarse and aggregated description of resource use in cities, indicating the need for further advancements in scientific knowledge. <br /><br />In this opening lecture, a research proposition for Urban Metabolism is going to be presented, showcasing the work done by the Urban Metabolism group at Chalmers in the past five years and how it contributes to unlocking knowledge to study cities in detail, and how this is useful for society. Emphasis will be put on the need to develop better analytical tools and models, that are,<br />to the extent possible, universal in their nature.<span></span></span>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation171215.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation171215.aspxDisputation i matematik: Christoffer Standar<p>Pascal, Hörsalsvägen 1</p><p>On finite element schemes for Vlasov-Maxwell system and Schrödinger equation</p>​<br />Fakultetsopponent: professor Francis Filbet, Université Toulouse III &amp; Institut Universitaire de Francehttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Peter-Nilsson.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Peter-Nilsson.aspxPeter Nilsson<p>SB-H4, SB-huset, Sven Hultins gata 6</p><p>​Laser Welded Steel Sandwich Panels for Bridge Applications</p><div>​<br />Abstract:</div> <div>The design of steel bridge decks has remained unchanged since the introduction of orthotropic decks. Orthotropic decks are expensive to produce, mainly due to high labor-costs. Furthermore, several joints (within the deck and between the deck and the surrounding structure) are highly fatigue sensitive, and the deck has a low stiffness in the transverse direction (i.e. perpendicular to the longitudinal stiffeners). This has in many cases led to premature deterioration and high maintenance costs. This thesis has a focus on laser-welded corrugated core steel sandwich bridge decks that have an increased stiffness-to-weight ratio and a more industrialized production with less complex detailing compared to conventional orthotropic steel decks. These enhancements lead to a more attractive solution with respect to economic and environmental sustainability. <br /><br /></div> <div>Structural analysis of a three-dimensional corrugated core sandwich panel using numerical methods is computationally heavy. In particular, the structural behavior of such panel in the transverse direction is rather complex. For that reason, this thesis is aimed at developing methods for simplified analysis incorporating homogenized beam and plate theories. Focus is put on predicting the stiffness and load effects in the direction transverse to the corrugation. A second aim of this thesis is to investigate the impact of variation of the production-dependent geometric parameters of the core-to-face joints of corrugated core steel sandwich panels on fatigue-relevant stresses in the vicinity of the laser stake welds. <br /><br /></div> <div>In order to utilize a simplified approach for static analysis of a corrugated core steel sandwich panel, a new analytical formulation for the transverse shear stiffness in the weak direction of the panel is presented in this thesis. To ensure that this stiffness property yields accurate predictions, the rotational rigidity of the weld region is simulated by a rotational spring. The magnitude of this spring is determined by a closed-form solution based on numerical and regression analyses. Both the transverse shear stiffness and the rotational spring is verified by numerical analyses and experiments. Furthermore, the impact of the variation of the production-dependent parameters is studied in this thesis by an extensive parametric study incorporating two-dimensional continuum numerical models. Numerical results are presented and discussed in detail. As an example, the parametric study shows that a misalignment between the weld-line and core direction can lead to a large increase of the fatigue-relevant stresses. <br /><br /></div> <h6 class="chalmersElement-H6">Keywords: laser-welding, sandwich panel, shear stiffness, corrugated core, joint geometry </h6><div> </div> <div>Examinator och handledare: Mohammad Al-Emrani, docent, Konstruktionsteknik, ACE, Chalmers</div> <div>Diskussionsledare: Sören Ehlers, professor, Hamburg University of Techonology<br /></div>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Installationsforelasning171215.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/math/kalendarium/Sidor/Installationsforelasning171215.aspxInstallationsföreläsning, professor i matematisk statistik: Petter Mostad<p>Pascal, Hörsalsvägen 1</p><p>​On forensic age estimation of asylum seekers and on replacing mathematical statistics with probabilistic data science</p><p>​<br />Abstract: <br />The process currently in use in Sweden for determining the age of asylum seekers has been hotly debated and criticized. I will go through the statistical features of the process, discussing estimation of error rates, but also how better and more optimal procedures can be constructed. </p> <p>In fact, current practices are far from optimal, and are but one example of how probability theory is <br />not used as well as it could be for making probabilistically based decisions in science and in society in general, even in mathematically simple contexts like age determination. I will argue that a root cause <br />of this deficiency is how mathematical statistics has been formulated and taught for generations, and will argue for radical changes. </p> <p>I will end with giving an overview of some of my other research activities and interests, such as exact inference in graphical networks and forensic statistics for both DNA and other types of observations. </p>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/bio/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation-Joakim-Almqvist.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/bio/kalendarium/Sidor/Disputation-Joakim-Almqvist.aspxJoachim Almquist, Systembiologi<p>KE, lecture hall, Kemi, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​“Kinetic models in life science – contributions to methods and applications”</p>​<br /><div><strong>Fakultetsopponent</strong>: Prof. Matthias Reuss, Stuttgart Research Center Systems Biology, University of Stuttgart</div> <div><br /><strong>Handledare</strong>:  Associate Prof. Mats Jirstrand<br /><strong>Examinator</strong>:  Prof. Jens Nielsen, Chalmers</div>https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Zhenhua-Sun.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Zhenhua-Sun.aspxZhenhua Sun<p>SB-H3, Sven Hultins gata 6</p><p>​Contribution of stormwater ponds to aquatic biodiversity</p><div>​<br />Abstract:</div> <div>The increased recognition that roads may impair the aquatic environment and ecosystems has led to a shift from conventional drainage systems toward blue-green solutions such as stormwater ponds. Research on blue-green stormwater solutions has until now mainly focused on water quantity and quality. The goals of this study are to evaluate the influence of environmental factors on the biological community composition in stormwater ponds receiving road runoff and to determine to which extent these green infrastructures can promote and maintain pond dwelling organisms. <br /><br /></div> <div>Biological community composition was investigated in 16 stormwater ponds along the highways E6 and E18 in the counties of Oslo, Akershus and Østfold of Norway. Multivariate statistical methods were used to explore the relationship between the biological community composition and the pollutants in water and sediments, as well as physical factors. Redundancy analysis combined with forward selection showed that the most important water quality and physical variables determining the variation in the biological community composition were pond size, distance to the closest pond from study pond, annual average daily traffic, concentrations of metals, chloride, dissolved oxygen, hydrocarbons and phosphorus. Most taxa were negatively correlated with metals. <br /><br />The results indicate that, compared with smaller ponds, larger ponds are better for supporting aquatic biodiversity due to a more heterogeneous environment and ability to dilute pollutants. Also, the presence of other ponds in the vicinity of the stormwater ponds would facilitate the movement of invertebrates between ponds through increased connectivity. The redundancy analysis showed that different taxa exhibited different responses to pollutants in the sediments, indicating potential differences in pollution tolerance among organisms. Therefore, the factors that may affect pollutant bioavailability in the sediments should be analysed. In addition, since different species, even within one family, responded differently to the same pollutant, it is important to identify organisms to the species level.

On December 18th, 14.30-16.00, Steve Williams from the University of British Columbia will present new research on the use of Labs and the multi-level perspective (MLP) of transition theory to support energy transition in Alberta, Canada.</p><br />Steve is a ‘pracademic’ (half practicioner, half academic) working on the intersections of public engagement, socio-technical transition and energy systems futures. He works with the Alberta Energy Futures Lab (EFL), a stakeholder engagement process designed with the MLP as a model for systems transition, by (i) helping process designers create more effective engagements, and, (ii) supporting researchers to better understand impacts of the process themselves.<br /><br />In this seminar, Steve will share how the EFL has used the MLP to develop strategy for systems change as well as design, facilitate and evaluate the EFL in the context of a rapidly changing landscape. Steve will discuss the implications of the lessons learned - and the surprises along the way - for the design of participatory processes aimed at facilitating systems transition and ways of approaching energy systems transition. <br /><br />Registration is not mandatory but appreciated.<br /><strong>Contact:</strong> Hans Hellsmark, <a href="mailto:hans.hellsmark@chalmers.se">hans.hellsmark@chalmers.se</a><br />https://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Nashita-Moona.aspxhttps://www.chalmers.se/sv/institutioner/ace/kalendarium/Sidor/Nashita-Moona.aspxNashita Moona<p>SB-M022, Sven Hultins gata 6</p><p>​Modification of Granular Activated Carbon Filter used in Drinking Water Treatment</p><p class="chalmersElement-P">​<br />Abstract:</p> <div>Drinking water are widely produced from surface water sources. In these water sources, there is a sustained change in quantity and quality of natural organic matter (NOM) around the world during the last decades especially in Northern Europe and North America. This increasing NOM and its composition change challenge the drinking water treatment plants (DWTP) due to e.g. increased coagulant demand, and because NOMs constituents act as precursors for potentially harmful disinfection by-products. Many DWTPs employing conventional treatment are currently struggling to maintain sufficient NOM removal, and are facing significant investments to upgrade existing treat processes. </div> <div>In this thesis, a modification strategy was tested to improve NOM removal by existing biological activated carbon (BAC) filters. Analytical techniques like dissolved organic carbon, spectroscopic methods (absorbance and fluorescence) were used to monitor the performance of modified filters in comparison to reference filters. In the second phase of the study, the modification strategy was employed in a different DWTP having different source water and coagulation treatment in order to validate the effectiveness of the proposed strategy under different conditions. </div> <div>Results show that replenishment of about 10% new activated carbon media in BAC filters resulted in improved performance of the BAC filters. The modified biofilters showed improved organic matter removal lasting for 10-30 days, depending on surface loading. In addition to improving the adsorption of humic-like NOM fractions, biological removal by the saturated filter media was enhanced. A subsequent validation study showed that improvement of biodegradation and adsorption mechanisms occurred in different DWTPs regardless of differences in NOM composition and coagulation processes prior to the BAC filters. </div> <div> </div> <h6 class="chalmersElement-H6">Keywords: Biofiltration, Drinking water treatment, Fluorescence, Granular activated carbon filter, Natural organic matter, Online monitoring, Spectroscopic properties</h6><div> </div> <div>Examinator: Professor Britt-Marie Wilén, WET, Chalmers ACE</div> <div>Handledare: Docent Thomas Pettersson, WET, Chalmers ACE</div> <div>Diskussionsledare: Professor Kenneth M.
