A Design Proposal for Facilitated Communication and Documentation<p>Virtual Development Laboratory, laboratory, Chalmers Tvärgata 4C, M-huset</p><p>​Alice Johansson &amp; Kristina Ljunglide Christensson presents their master thesis project. Supervisor/examiner: MariAnne Karlsson, IMS</p><strong>​Abstract</strong><div><div>Projects within the product development industry are often collaborative, meaning that the projects involve multiple companies, a fact that complicates communication. In this thesis project, two development projects at FlexLink’s site in Gothenburg were studied to identify what communicative challenges they faced. Based on the identified challenges in the projects and the needs of the project team members a solution is proposed. The concept is a shared digital platform focusing on improving the quality of meetings. Several iterations of interactive prototypes were produced and tested with the end users in real project meetings to evaluate the user experience. The initial user study and the tests resulted in a list of requirement which served as a basis for the development of the final concept, a visual representation of the functionality and a basic design proposal for the user interface (UI). </div> <div>The project has been done in collaboration with Yolean and FlexLink. </div></div> <div><br /></div> modelling of reinforced concrete structures<p>Virtual Development Laboratory, laboratory, Chalmers Tvärgata 4C, M-huset</p><p>​Adam Sciegaj, Doctoral Student at Structural Engineering​ defends his doctoral thesis &quot;Multiscale modelling of reinforced concrete structures&quot;.</p>​Opponent: Professor Adnan Ibrahimbegovic, University of Technology Compiegne/ Sorbonne Universities<div>Examiner: Karin Lundgren ACE</div> <div><br /></div> <div><a href=""><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Read more​</a></div> <div><br /></div>–-Pushing-the-boundaries-in-Transportation-with-Composites.aspx – Pushing the boundaries in Transportation with Composites<p>Lecture Hall Palmstedt, university building, Chalmersplatsen 2, Campus Johanneberg</p><p>​​Welcome to the 5th annual composite seminar co-organized by Chalmers and LIGHTer.</p><div><br />​This year we focus on the future lightweight vehicles in different transportation areas. There are many generic issues that must be addressed in order to lower the emissions using lightweight structures. During the day we look forward to extensive and interesting discussions.  </div> <div> </div> <div>We have an exciting programme and we are happy to welcome speakers from many different industrial sectors, such as space, aeronautics, automotive and maritime.</div> <div> </div> <div>Warmly welcome! <br /></div> <br /><h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Contact person</h2> <div> </div> <div>Ann-Charlotte Weiblad,  0707-806237</div> <div> </div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Agenda</h2> <div>09:30 - 09:45    Coffee and Registration<br /><br /></div> <div>09:45 - 10:00    Welcome and Introduction</div> <div><em>Brina Blinzler, Chalmers and Cecilia Ramberg, LIGHTer</em></div> <div><br />10:00 - 10:40    Composites development at Volvo</div> <div>Henrik Molker, Volvo Cars</div> <div><br />10:40 - 11:20    Structural batteries: multiphysics modelling </div> <div><em>Johanna Xu, Chalmers University of Technology</em></div> <div><br />11:20 - 12:00    High temperature composites development </div> <div><em>Patrik Fernberg, Luleå University of Technology</em></div> <div><br />12:00 - 13:00    Lunch</div> <div><br />13:00 - 13:40    Can we make carbon fibre composites as stiff and strong as steel?</div> <div><em>Leif Asp, Chalmers University of Technology</em></div> <div><br />13:40 - 14:20    Towards next generation aero-engines – Harnessing the 21st century technologies</div> <div><em>Spyros Tsampas, GKN </em></div> <div><br />14:20 - 14:50    Coffee</div> <div><br />14:50 - 15:30    Composite: design and development from Ferrari top cars to ISS experiments, satellites and beyond - <em>Davide Santachiara, DTM Technologies, Italy</em><em></em></div> <div><br />15:30 - 15:45    Summary </div> Materials Conference 2020<p>Chalmers Conference Centre, company, Chalmersplatsen 1, Kårhuset</p><p>Competence Centre of Recycling (CCR) at Chalmers University of Technology; RE:Source in   cooperation with Nordic Publishing and research institutes, academia, and organisations from the   basic, chemical, recycling and textile industries are proud to invite you to the 5th Circular Materials       Conference on March 17-18 2020 at Chalmers Conference Centre in Gothenburg, Sweden. &gt;</p>​The Circular Materials Conference is <span><span></span>the leading Nordic forum for industrial, scientific and commercial progress in circular use of materials.</span><div><span><b><br /></b></span></div> <div><span><b>The conference 2020 will highlight on:</b> </span><div><ul><li><span>Circular Materials Business Applications </span></li> <li>AI, IoT, digitalization, automation as an innovation driver of circular material </li></ul></div> <div><span><strong>Research and Innovation for circular material focusing on: </strong></span><br /></div> <div><ol><li>Plastics </li> <li>Textiles</li> <li><span>Metals from Secondary Sources/ WEEE/batteries </span></li> <li><span>Fast movi</span><span>ng consumer goods </span></li> <li>Building and construction</li></ol></div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>Target Group</strong></div> <div>The forum welcomes everyone interested in the cutting edge of circular innovation.
