    Public Procurement of Winter Road Maintenance Services Based on EU Procurement Directive: Lessons from Sweden2013In: Journal of Investment and Management, ISSN 2328-7721, Vol. 2, no 4, p. 70-86Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Public procurement of road maintenance services, particularly in cold regions is not an easy task in order to satisfy road-users during winter. Road-users’ dissatisfaction, complaint and pressure can usually be considered as major factors for having more accessible and safe roads during winter. These pressures have contributed and led to an increasing critical approach focusing on public procurement of these services after some harsh winters in the recent years in Sweden with traffic disruption and delay as consequence i.e. an increasing focus on the way in which the Swedish state authorities and local governments procure winter road maintenance services. The present study which is part of a larger research project investigating efficient winter road maintenance through procurement, tendering and contract aimed at extending this knowledge base with regard to procurement and socioeconomic factors with focus on the winter maintenance of the Swedish road network. The study reveals that even the Swedish winter road maintenance services are procured and outsourced in accordance with EU directive and public procurement rules transposed into the Swedish act on public procurement, the act has been interpreted in a manner that all the process has led to great dissatisfaction of end-users during winter due to improper bundling of winter related services. The lack of economic motivation in current contracts concerning winter road maintenance in the form of incentives has led to an inefficient performance of winter road measures. The study suggests a number of proposals in order to make forthcoming contracts more effective through proper bundling of winter services and create incentives for contractors to improve the performance of winter road maintenance services.

    Use of Road Weather Information System (RWIS) as Assistive Tool for Effective Winter Road Maintenance: Technical andContractual Interactions2012In: International Journal of Engineering and Technolgy, ISSN 2049-3444, Vol. 2, no 12, p. 2002-2012Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Winter highway operation and maintenance in the northern periphery is a challenge, a broad and complex area. Understanding about this area and its effect on winter traffic performance is far from complete. During the last forty years since Swedish Transport Administration (former Swedish National Road Administration) began attempting of the use of Road Weather Information System -RWIS on the Swedish road network, the repair and maintenance methods of this assistive tool has dramatically changed. Changing of the methods have been due to the progress and development of the technology within this area i.e. from simple stations that could be connected via telephone network for icy road warning to amore sophisticated and modern internet based technology. The main objective of this study was to investigate and find the importance and effectiveness of using weather data collected from RWIS by road agencies as an assistive tool for effective performance of winter road maintenance, and how these tools are currently maintained without influencing the delay of winter road maintenance.The study also attempts to find possible interactions between technical and contractual issues that may affect winter road maintenance. The method of the study was partly based on a theoretical study by reviewing some internationally published articles and reports in this area and furthermore a domestic questionnaire survey, an internationalbenchmarking and a follow-up study within a selected region in Sweden. The results of the study reveal that even if the weather stations are normally placed on roads where the risk of icy roads is greatest, there are indirect factors which influence the planned maintenance of these tools which subsequenly cause delay of winter road maintenance.

    En socialpsykologisk studie om organisationsvisionens betydelse för sociala relationer i arbetsvardagen2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this study, we have considered the impact the organization`s implementation of its vision of the psychosocial work enviroment has been for the relations between the employees. We have primarily relied on a hermeneutic approach to understand our empirical data, and when we have interpreted and made a socialpsycological analysis on our collected empirical data. We have used Smith´s Institutional Ethnography, Sheff`s Social bonds and Asplund`s theory of Social responsivity. To collect the empirical data we have combined quantitative and qualtitative methods and a textanalysis at a visiondocument in the aim of capture both the depht and the breadth of our chosen fields of study. The results we have found shows that the psycosocial work environment within the organization can be seen as interplay between individual and enviroment and between individuals as well and that this interaction is influenced by the organizational culture that is created by the organization`s political vision

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of the study is to examine the banks view of internalcontrol and further investigate what mechanisms are used tostreamline the internal controls. The study is directed into whetherthe whistle-blowing is used as one of the tools in the internalcontrol to enhance the ability to detect and prevent irregularities ofa financial character.

    The study use a inductive method to lead the collection of datamaterial. The study further use a qualitative method based on fourinterviews with different banks were this data material is comparedwith existing theories in the second chapter.

    The study shows that the view of internal control and whistleblowingis positive in the process to create a successful company inthe banks. Despite that the whistle- blowing is known as acomplicated function, it’s still used to detect and preventirregularities of crimes, such of financial character. Except whistleblowing,the banks are using more tools to streamline the internalcontrol. To urge employees to comply laws and other principles,education in different areas for employers but also to createdifferent work approaches in the company, to make internal checkupsand constant supervision of the organization work is some ofthe tools that are used.

    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this thesis is to create a deeper and also a better understanding about how each of the professional secrecy and obligation to report are perceived from auditors and further investigate how the potential conflicts based on independence and “can be suspect” are handled by the auditors. The purpose has been achieved through interviews with four different accounting firms.

    The interviews were conducted with Grant Thornton, BDO Mälardalen AB, PwC and KPMG to answer the research questions. Subsequently, a hermeneutic approach was used to since the interpretation of the interviews was considered as important to obtain knowledge of the respondent’s perception about the topic. In the analyze chapter have dataset from the reference framework and empirical part been used to implement the analyze of the thesis.

    The study shows that the professional secrecy is important for creating a good relationship with clients and is not considered as a rule that create conflicts for auditors. The obligation to report, however, is creating conflicts because of the lack of knowledge in assessment of economic crimes. The auditors therefore decide to investigate a situation that “can be suspect” beyond what is intended. To not become dependent on the clients, there are rules and profession practices that are used and also examples like not having friends or family members as clients.

    A Study on behavioral Health Interventions for Neglected tropical diseases: What is missing in current health interventions?2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Aim: The aim of this paper is to provide a deeper understanding of the spread of NTDs but to also determine what is missing in the health interventions that are conducted in the countries affected by NTD.

    Method and theory: The method used in this paper is the theory testing approach which is the Social Cognitive Theory. Development in the 1970s by A. Badura, it’s based on the concept of interaction between personal, environmental and social factors.

    Results: The results showed that both the previous research and today’s health interventions lack the understanding of the roll social and personal factors play in the spread of NTD. They mainly target the environmental factors and medical. Therefore, the NTDs are still endemic despite the effort during many years.

    The bright hopes and desoluted dream of Ethiopian women: A study of circular migration to middle east and the gulf states2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Migration and re-migration of economically and socially marginalized Ethiopian women and girls has become a phenomenon. Based on interviews with 12 Ethiopian migrant women returned from the Middle East and the Gulf States, the primary aim of this thesis is to describe and study Ethiopian women migrants’ circular migration to the Middle East. I will mainly focus on how social dynamics in the family, gender relations and economic circumstances are intricate. The process of women’s migration and how the expectations of the family can be gender differentiated are discussed. Further, the migrant women’s power relation when class and ethnicity determine their position is discussed. Relations with the sending family and the issues related to the women who return, as well as problems affecting them at home and in the destination countries, are looked at. Various and complex issues of migration and the women’s roles are discussed with reference to the women’s experiences. Migration provides women with opportunities for social and economic mobility but can also subject them to ethnic discrimination, exploitation, and abuse. The movement is generally seen as voluntary labor migration and it has placed them in a vulnerable position both at home and abroad. Their migration is interconnected to the economic need but also the responsibilities they have towards their family and kin.

    Tunisiens tillfälliga övergångsregim 2011: En teorikonsumerande fallstudie av politiska aktörers betydelse för övergången till demokratiskt styre2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    According to The Economist Democracy Index, Tunisia was at 2.79 during 2010 and by the end of 2011 they had climbed up to 5.53. Therefore Tunisia entered a new category, called hybrid regime. This was a step closer to a more democratic regime. Rustow Dankwart, Shain Yossi and Linz J. Juan would say that the interim government and the political actors within it had a significant impact on Tunisias increase in democracy index. Therefore the aim of this study took the shape of a theory consuming case study. The purpose of the study was to analyze the political actors and the interim government importance during the Tunisian democratic transition, with the delimitation to the year 2011. The results firstly showed us the categorization hardliners within the authoritarian coalition in combination with radicals in the oppositional coalition. During the second interim government the categorization changes from hardliners to softliners. During the third, we see a glint of moderates within the opposition. Secondly, the results showed us that there is evidence of an opposition-led, power-sharing and incumbent-led caretaker regime in Tunisia. The study discusses two conclusions about political actors during the transition. Firstly, the importance of radicals within the opposition and secondly the importance of the authoritarian coalition changing from hardliners to softliners, which allowed the country to transition. Within the categorization of the interim government we have come to the conclusion that the opposition-led government played a significant role in the Tunisian transition.

    Analysis of heat recovery in supermarket refrigeration system using carbon dioxide as refrigerant2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this study is to investigate the heat recovery potential in supermarket refrigeration systems using CO2 as refrigerants. The theoretical control strategy to recover heating demand from refrigeration system is explained thoroughly and the heat recovery process from two existing supermarket using CO2 booster units is analyzed and evaluated. The measured data of refrigeration systems is obtained through Iwmac interface, processed using Excel and Refprop. The aim is to see what control strategy is used in these systems and weather it matches the theoretical one and at what level heat is recovered from the system.

    Besides, a simulation model is made by EES to investigate the potential of higher rate of heat recovery in the supermarkets. The simulation results are compared with field measurement and validated by measured values. Then, the ability of refrigeration system to do heat recovery at quite high rates for covering the total heating demand without using parallel heating system is evaluated and efficiency of the system is calculated. At the next step the heat recovery potential at other refrigeration solutions such as R404A conventional and CO2-ammonia cascade systems are studied and the results are compared to booster units. Finally, the potential for selling heat from the refrigeration system in supermarket to district heating network is investigated. Two different scenarios are made for such purpose and the results are evaluated.

    The heat recovery control strategy of existing supermarkets does not match the theoretical strategy and regarding the capacity of the system, heat is recovered to low extent. Simulation shows that heat can be recovered to higher extent at quite high heating COP of 3-5. Additionally the other heat recovery solutions for R404A conventional and CO2-ammonia cascade systems are found to be competitive to CO2 booster system.  The analysis of selling heat to district heating network shows that CO2 booster system is capable of covering the demand at reasonable heating COP as the first priority and selling the rest to district heating network at heating COP of 2 as second priority.

    Re-processing of reflection seismic data from line V2 of the HIRE Seismic Reflection Survey in the Suurikuusikko mining and exploration area, northern Finland2011Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 30 credits / 45 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The Suurikuusikko gold deposit is located in northern Finland; it is the largest known gold resource in northern Europe. The acquired high resolution reflection seismic data along the c.30 km long profile V2 of the HIRE reflection survey in the Surrikuusikko gold mining and exploration area have been re-processed. A 15.4 ton Geosvip was used as the source, with a receiver spacing of 12.5 m and source spacing of 25 or 50 m. It was aimed to obtain more detailed structural information of the upper 5 – 6 km crust, and to study the seismic response of the important geological and tectonic structures (e.g. Suasselkä PG fault) along the line V2. The line V2 runs from south to north; in the north, it cuts the mafic graphitic tuffic rocks, which are buried under a layer of tholeiite. It is almost perpendicular to the surface trace of the Suasselkä PG fault in the north. The obtained seismic image showed significant improvements compared with the previous work. The seismic response of the major rock units generated strong reflections, and they can be traced down to at least 3 km depth; the reflections correlate well with the surface geology. The moderately dipping reflections from the PG fault are clearly imaged; the dip direction of the fault is towards the SE with a dip of about 50o, possibly decreasing with depth down to about 35o, the fault can be traced down to about 3 km depth. The reverse movement of the fault most probably caused the neighboring sub-horizontal layers to be folded and generated a duplex structure. The dip direction of the major structures in the southern parts is towards NE; this together with the mentioned information about the fault, can be utilized in order to define the major geological structures and most importantly the tectonic evolution of the area; such information can be used in many crucial aspects such as prediction of the future movements of the bedrock and discovery of new resources.

    Constraints on the geometry of the Suasselka post-glacial fault, northern Finland, based on reflection seismic imaging2015In: Tectonophysics, ISSN 0040-1951, E-ISSN 1879-3266, Vol. 649, p. 130-138Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Unloading of the ice during the last glacial period in northern Fennoscandia is believed to have generated major faulting. These faults, often referred to as post-glacial faults, typically have clear surface exposures, but their geometry at depth is poorly known. In order to better understand the geometry at depth of the Suasselka post-glacial fault in Finland, three high resolution 2D reflection seismic profiles over the fault were reprocessed. Their total profile length is about 60 km and they were acquired as part of a major effort in Finland to map the uppermost crust in mining areas. The reprocessing led to significantly improved images that could be used to map the fault at depth. Two approximately N-S striking profiles and one E-W striking profile were reprocessed. The different azimuths and the crooked nature of the profiles allowed the fault geometry to be relatively well constrained. Clear reflections from the fault, dipping towards the SE, can be traced from the shallow subsurface down to about 3 km. The strike and dip of two sets of dipping reflections in the stacked data along with geometrical constraints and cross-dip analysis give a consistent dip of about 35-45 degrees towards the SE for the fault. The strike and dip vary from N55E with a dip of 35 degrees in the east to a strike of N48E with a dip of 45 degrees in the west. Existence of the two sets of reflections indicates that the fault surface is non-planar. Aside from allowing the geometry of the fault to be determined, the seismic data show a complex reflectivity pattern in the area and indications of both reverse and normal movement along fault planes with similar orientation to the Suasselka post-glacial fault. These images can be used as a basis for better characterizing the 3D geology of the area.

    Numerical investigation of melting in a cavity with vertically oriented fins2019In: Applied Energy, ISSN 0306-2619, E-ISSN 1872-9118, Vol. 235, p. 1027-1040Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper investigates the effect of vertical fins, as an enhancement technique, on the heat transfer rate and energy density of a latent heat thermal energy storage system. This contributes with knowledge on the interaction of heat transfer surface with the storage material for optimizing storage capacity (energy) and power (heat transfer rate). For the assessment, numerical modeling is employed to study the melting process in a two-dimensional rectangular cavity. The cavity is considered heated isothermally from the bottom with surface temperatures of 55 degrees C, 60 degrees C or 70 degrees C, while the other surfaces are insulated from the surrounding. Aluminum and lauric acid are considered as fin/enclosure material and phase change material, respectively. Vertical fins attached to the bottom surface are employed to enhance the charging rate, and a parametric study is carried out by varying the fin length and number of fins. Thus, a broad range of data is provided to analyze the influence of fin configurations on contributing natural convection patterns, as well as the effects on melting time, enhanced heat transfer rate and accumulated energy. The results show that in addition to increasing the heat transfer surface area, the installation of vertically oriented fins does not suppress the natural convection mechanism. This is as opposed to horizontal fins which in previous studies have shown tendencies to reduce the impact of natural convection. This paper also highlights how using longer fins offers a higher rate of heat transfer and a better overall heat transfer coefficient rather than increasing the number of fins. Also, fins do not only enhance the heat transfer performance in the corresponding melting time, but also maintain similar total amount of stored energy as compared to the no-fin case. This paper discusses how this is the result of the enhanced heat transfer allowing a larger portion of sensible heat to be recovered. For example, in the case with long fins, the relative mean power enhancement is about 200% with merely 6% capacity reduction, even though the amount of PCM in the cavity has been reduced by 12% as compared to the no-fin case. Although the basis for these results stems from the principles of thermodynamics, this paper is bringing it forward with design consideration. This is because despite its importance for making appropriate comparisons among heat transfer enhancement techniques in latent heat thermal energy storage, it has not been previously discussed in the literature. In the end, the aim is to accomplish robust storage systems in terms of power and energy density.

    Heat recovery investigation of a supermarket refrigeration system using carbon dioxide as refrigerant2014In: 11th IIR Gustav Lorentzen Conference on Natural Refrigerants: Natural Refrigerants and Environmental Protection, GL 2014, International Institute of Refrigeration, 2014, p. 277-285Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study investigates the heat reclaim of trans-critical CO2-booster refrigeration unit in a supermarket in Sweden. The aim is to compare the control strategy for heat recovery in real supermarket installation to the optimum control strategy.

    The optimum control strategy based on theoretical analysis is explained. By analyzing field measurement of a supermarket, heat recovery in the refrigeration system is studied and compared to the optimum case. To investigate the potential of higher heat recovery rate, a computer model is developed based on the optimum control strategy.  The model is also used to calculate the boundary conditions at which the system should run for highest COP.

    The results show that heat can be recovered at heating COP of 3-4.5. The theoretical analysis shows that the amount of heat that can be recovered from the refrigeration system is about 1.3 times (130 %) the cooling demand in the system. However the analysis of the field measurements shows that only between 30-60 % of the available heat to be recovered is utilized, the rest is released to outdoors. The analysis in this study shows that there is a potential to recover much more heat from the refrigeration system at relatively high heating COP compared to heat pump.

    Kognitiv beteende-terapeutisk behandling för pedofiler och övriga sexualbrottslingar.: - En kvalitativ litteraturstudie om effekter och utvärderingsproblematik på kvantitativ forskning. 2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Sammanfattning

    Följande studie är en kvalitativ litteraturstudie, grundat på kvantitativ forskning, som undersöker det befintliga kunskapsläget angående de långsiktiga behandlingseffekterna rörande sambandet mellan KBT-inriktad behandling och återfall hos pedofiler och övriga sexualförbrytare. Studien syftar till att granska vilket utfall KBT-inriktade behandlingsprogram har för vuxna, manliga pedofiler samt övriga sexualförbrytare. Vidare ämnar litteraturstudien att undersöka om befintlig forskning tar hänsyn till och belyser problematiken som kan uppstå i samband med utvärderingar av behandlingsprogrammen. 14 kvantitativa vetenskapliga artiklar har inkluderats och ligger till grund för denna litteraturöversikt. De vetenskapliga artiklarna har genom en tematisk analys syntetiserats och analyserats utifrån stämplingsteorin samt begreppen makt och stigma. Resultatet av litteraturöversikten visar att KBT- inriktade behandlingsprogram visar blandade resultat när det kommer till att minska återfallsfrekvensen hos pedofiler och övriga sexualförbrytare. Vidare visar resultatet att de studier som inkluderats i denna litteraturöversikt i olika grad tagit hänsyn till och belyst olika problem som kan uppstå i samband med utvärderingar, men generellt är denna aspekt väldigt bristfällig i samtliga studier. Det framkom även att samtliga artiklar hade olika förutsättningar i sina studier då de exempelvis har olika uppföljningstider, har utfört behandlingsprogrammen på olika institutioner, majoriteten saknar en definition av återfall samt att artiklarna inkluderat olika typer av sexualförbrytare i sina studier. Därav är det inte möjligt att sammanställa resultaten av samtliga inkluderade artiklar. Utifrån detta går det således heller inte att veta huruvida KBT-inriktade behandlingsprogram är verksamma för de olika typerna av sexualförbrytare.

    Is Bitcoin here to stay?- A case study on cryptocurrency, Bitcoin2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of money has been around since we started using goods and commodities

    as means of payment. So for thousands of years people have been used to trading goods

    and services for money. The evolution of money as a tool for exchange started out with

    people using cocoa seeds, shells and other precious objects, that progressed into the use

    of precious metals, such as gold and silver. In recent centuries we have found ourselves

    using fiat currency and now, with the evolution of the Internet, we might be on the

    verge of the next step in the evolution cycle of money.

    Enter Bitcoin, which is the first decentralised digital currency that uses cryptography.

    The purpose of this thesis is to explore the positive and negative aspects of Bitcoin so

    far, and will investigate what the future might hold for the invention of this

    cryptocurrency.

    A gendered perspective on the impact of conflict in the Horn of Africa2011Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This Policy Note focuses on the gendered consequences of the militarisation of the Horn of Africa. Despite being in different ‘moments’ of conflict, the countries of this region share features of extreme social, economic and political violence, which impact negatively on their citizens. Protracted refugee and refugee-like conditions, extreme disinvestment in social programmes, increasing militarisation and political repression adversely affect women, thereby further entrenching gender disparities. Concerted national and international efforts and resources should support local democratic initiatives to find political solutions to these protracted conflicts and advance the struggle against sexual and gender-based violence and discrimination.

    Kvinnors upplevelser av att leva med urininkontinens: En litteraturstudie2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Urinary incontinence can affect all people and is described as a difficulty in controlling the urine, which in turn can lead to involuntary urinary leakage. There are several reasons behind urinary incontinence, for instance due to weakness in the connective tissue and muscles of the pelvic floor. Women who suffer from urinary incontinence have thought of it as normal and temporary, although it is a permanent condition. Urinary leakage can also give the feeling of discomfort, which may evolve into anxiety and distress about how to handle the leakage. The fear of getting urine leakage publicly can also lead to social isolation. Aim: The aim is to investigate women's experiences of living with urinary incontinence. Method: A qualitative literature study of eleven scientific articles was conducted. Result: The analysis is presented with three themes; Emotional imbalance, Powerlessness and Attitude, as well as six additional subthemes; Feelings of shame, Feelings of fear, A lost bodily control, Limitations in everyday life, Feelings of taboo and Accepting existence.

    The main conclusion: Urinary incontinence is a taboo coated subject and may be due to several reasons, including that women feel embarrassed to speak about it publicly, which in turn may mean a lack of awareness within the health care but also among the affected women. Furthermore, when women sought treatment and found different strategies to reduce leakage, the symptoms decreased.

    Energieffektivisering av Limatvätten AB: Värmeåtervinning från manglar2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Energy efficiency is in the interest of all industries, as it involves the reduction of both energy and cost. The purpose of this project for a bachelor’s degree is to analyse potential energy recovery of waste heat from an ironer.

    The work was carried out at Limatvätten AB, which is a large and modern laundry facility. Limatvätten AB is a textile service company that has been in existence for 50 years. The Lima laundry’s main customers are from the hotel and restaurant business. Limatvätten AB has its own textiles that are rented to hotels, conferences, etc. The largest customers are in Sälenfjällen and in the Siljan region.

    The work is done by identifying moisture, temperature and dynamic pressure in an ironer Based on measurements, the amount of energy that can be recycled is calculated. Heat recovery system proposals are also given in the report. Aquavent is a heat exchanger that uses ventilation heat from the ironers. The water that is heated in the aquavent is led into the washing pipes, which leads to the reduction of steam consumption in washing processes. Temperature change depends on the heat exchanger's efficiency, the higher the temperature change, the more amount of energy recovery is obtained.

    After identification of the problem, a timetable was mapped, and appropriate instruments and interesting parameters were chosen. The moisture content, temperature and dynamic pressure have been measured. The equations described in the theory section are used for most of the calculations with the help of Excel.

    According to the result, the energy saving will be 184 MWh/year if all excess heat from a mangle is reused. Based on the result, the total savings potential is SEK 57 000 /year. According to the results, it is shown that there is the potential to use excess heat from the Lima wash ironers. In addition to the saving of energy, climate impact is also reduced, as the excess energy is again reused which would otherwise disappear into the atmosphere. If two of the ironers are coupled with a heat recovery system, it results in a doubling on the savings potential.

    KORTA VÄGEN?: En kvalitativ studie om utrikesfödda akademikers upplevelserom den Korta vägen till den svenska arbetsmarknaden2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Korta Vägen är en arbetsmarknadsutbildning på uppdrag av arbetsförmedlingen som tilldelas olika lärosäten runt om i Sverige. Ändamålet med arbetsmarknadsutbildningen är att förkorta vägen till den svenska arbetsmarknaden för utrikesfödda akademiker. Syftet med denna studie var att studera de insatser som utförs av Korta vägen, för att förkorta vägen till ett arbete för utrikesfödda akademiker från ett deltagarperspektiv.

    Genom fokusgruppsintervjuer med deltagare från Korta vägen studerades hur deltagarna upplevde de insatser som utförs av Korta vägen samt hur deltagarna upplevde att Korta vägen hjälpt deras etablering på den svenska arbetsmarknaden. Detta i förhållande till teorier om socialt kapital, kulturellt kapital och Granovetters nätverks teorier. 

    Fokusgruppsintervjuerna spelades in för att sedan transkriberas och kodas, dessa koder delades sedan in i olika teman.

     

    Det empiriska resultatet av denna studie visade att respondenterna upplevde att de som utrikesfödda akademiker inom Korta vägen inte fått någon tydlig introduktion om svenska normer och värderingar. Samtidigt som respondenterna upplevde att de inte har liknande mängder tillgång av socialt kapital i sina sociala nätverk som inrikes födda.

     Resultatet i denna studie tyder på att våra respondenter upplevde sig ha brist på svaga band samt underskott av både socialt och kulturellt kapital.

    Nyckelord/Keywords Korta vägen, utrikesfödda akademiker, sociala nätverk, socialt kapital, kulturellt kapital, starka/svaga band

    Faktorer som hindrar sjuksköterskan inom hälso- och sjukvården från att göra en orosanmälan på barn2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Background: It's a fundamental principal to protect children's rights. Through legislation, child abuse has been prohibited in many countries. Nurses working with children has a frontline role in identifying and reporting suspected or known child abuse. Mandatory reporting is one of the nurse's duty, reluctancy to report can lead to misconduct but it also leads to children suffering.

    Aim: The purpose of this degree project was to identify factors preventing nurses from mandatory reporting of children in health care.

    Method: A literature study based on using and analysing nine qualitative articles.

    Results: Three themes emerged in the result. The first theme was knowledge deficit, with two subthemes which were the need of education of signs and symptoms and the other subtheme was insufficient experiences. The second theme was nurses strained work environment with three subthemes. The first subtheme was the lack of routines, the second one miss information and the third one lack of cooperation and communication. The third theme consists of two subthemes, which were the lack of emotional support and the experience of fear. The results showed that nurses due to different factors relinquished from mandatory reporting. 

    Conclusion: The results highlighted that education and training was needed among nurses to gain knowledge on how to safeguard children and establish mandatory reporting. Thus, support from colleagues and managers agencies dealing with child safety was highly valued by nurses. Implementation of education, training and support could improve the cooperation in protecting children.

    Finns det någon koppling mellan Alzheimers sjukdom och Diabetes Mellitus?2014Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Alzheimers sjukdom är en neurodegenerativ sjukdom vars orsak är okänd, kännetecknas av en gradvis försämring av kognitiva funktioner. Alzheimers sjukdom och Diabetes Mellitus har flera gemensamma patofysiologiska samband, bland annat insulinresistens. Försämrad insulinsignalering kan leda till kognitiv funktionsförsämring, som i sin tur kan leda till Alzheimers sjukdom. Båda insulin och amyloid-β metaboliseras av insulinnedbrytande enzym (IDE), defekt i IDE kan delvis orsaka amyloid-β ansamlingar. Syftet med detta arbete är att undersöka om försämrad insulinsignalering kan leda till kognitiv försämring och påskynda utvecklingen av Alzheimers sjukdom.

    Jag har gjort en systematisk litteraturöversikt för att undersöka detta. Det är större risk att drabbas av Alzheimers sjukdom om man har Diabetes Mellitus. Man såg ett samband mellan försämrad insulinsignalering och försämrad kognitiv funktion. Förhöjda glukosnivåer var förenade med kognitiv försämring, medan nedsatt glukosnivå inte hade någon betydelse vid kognitiv försämring. Dessutom påskyndar en hög glukosnivå omvandlingen från MCI (mild kognitivs vikt) till Alzheimers sjukdom. Trots detta resultat krävs det mer forskning inom området eftersom olika metoder användes på de olika studierna vilket kan ge ett falskt samband.

    Abstract [en]

    The paper studies the relation between valuation and corporate investment level. It provides an insight to the q-model and its implications for investment level. By acknowledge the q-model’s empirical shortcomings it questions whether adjustments for volatility will strengthen the q-model empirically. It argues: as volatility is a proxy for risk, stock market volatility would be related to firm behaviour and investment decisions.

    Hur arbetar skolor förebyggande och åtgärdande med mobbning och kränkande behandling som sker på sociala medier?: En kvalitativ studie med skolkuratorer2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Internet har idag blivit en stor och stark social mötesplats för ungdomar. En stor del av deras kommunikation sker idag genom olika sociala forum som exempel Facebook, Twitter och Youtube. Internet skapar utrymme för frihet och uttryck. Å andra sidan kan det negativa med de olika sociala forumen vara att ungdomar kan fara illa genom att integriteten kränks på olika sätt. Trots att internet kan vara ett sätt för ungdomar att umgås på och därmed en social arena kan alltså risken för mobbning och kränkande behandling förekomma. Då människor i större utsträckning har tillgång till internet och mobiltelefoner resulterar det vidare till att mobbning och kränkande behandling som sker på nätet följer offret överallt i den dagliga tillvaron. Detta kan resultera i att nätmobbningen och nätkränkningen inte enbart sker på fritiden utan följer även med ungdomarna in i skolans värld. När denna typ av mobbning och kränkande behandling följer ungdomen in i skolans värld har skolan enligt lag skyldighet att agera. Hela skolans personal, föräldrar och elever är involverade i arbetet med att förebygga mobbning och kränkande behandling. Det krävs även att hela elevhälsan är delaktiga och där är nyckelpersonen, skolkuratorn. Utifrån detta är vårt syfte och vår ambition med denna studie att undersöka hur skolkuratorer i skolan hanterar problematik (mobbning, kränkande behandling, trakasserier samt diskriminering) som uppkommer på grund av sociala medier. Detta kommer att ske genom åtta kvalitativa intervjuer med skolkuratorer. Urvalet har begränsats till Norrort i Stockholm, där åtta grundskolor slumpmässigt valts ut. Vidare har även en intervju med en projektledare från organisationen Friends ägt rum. Studien bygger på tankarna bakom primär, sekundär och tertiär brottsprevention. Teorin som använts för att analysera resultatet är Sulers ”The online disinhibition effect”.

    Huvudslutsatserna i studien är att mobbning som sker på sociala medier är ett svårt problem för skolkuratorerna att arbeta med. Skolkuratorerna uttrycker att det oftast inte handlar om mobbning utan om att personen istället utsätts för en kränkande behandling, detta då eleverna inte tänker sig för när det uttrycker sig på internet. En annan slutsats är att skolkuratorerna inte skiljer på traditionell mobbning och mobbning som sker på sociala medier och att deras förebyggande arbete är väldigt generellt.

    En kvalitativ studie om nätmobbning och psykisk ohälsa bland ungdomar2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Studiens syfte är att undersöka respondenternas uppfattning av nätmobbning och dess påverkan på den psykiska hälsan och skolgång. Samt att undersöka vad skolorna har för förebyggande arbete kring nätmobbning. Urvalet i studien är gymnasieelever som går sitt sista år på gymnasiet samt kuratorer som arbetar på de utvalda skolorna. Studien består av en kvalitativ intervjumetod med semistrukturerade intervjuer. Författarna har valt att intervjua sex respondenter utifrån ett snöbollsurval och bekvämlighetsurval. Utifrån studiens empiri, tidigare forskning och teorier framgår det att respondenterna tror att nätmobbning kan ha en påverkan på ungdomars psykiska ohälsa och kan påverka deras skolgång negativt. Skolorna har ett likabehandlingsteam som ansvarar för den här typen av problematik och arbetar förebyggande i form av föreläsningar och individuella samtal.

    Förtäckta rättshandlingar: Verklig innebörd2013Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this essay has been to study how sham transactions are classified in a civil law and tax law perspective and if the classification is based on a civil or economic basis.

    A sham transaction occurs when a contract is assigned a different legal label than its actual content is corresponding to. This can be done deliberately (to circumvent mandatory legislation) or unconsciously. The reason for the unconscious are that, some civil law concepts meaning may vary both in civil- and tax law context, that different areas of law overlap each other, and also because legislative is missing. The court may conduct a reclassification of such acts, but unlike to civil law the sham transaction must be of obvious character in tax law. Before a reclassification is taken the court must undertake a classification for which adequate interpretation data such as the contract, intent of the parties as well as the economic aspect are taken into account. Thereafter a legal classification of these data is made through various interpretation activities such as decipher, reinterpretation, subsumption under contractual provision or rule of law. The essay reveals a consensus regarding the civil law area regarding classification of sham transaction. On the tax law area, there is however a disagreement about what is meant by “the real meaning “, which criterion that should be used and how they should be assessed.

    In response to the question, an adequate classification cannot be made if one does not take into account all the facts that are relevant. For the interpretation, I believe that both the civil law aspects and the economic character must be considered. Most likely, a statutory regulation will be needed, going forward, due to changes in people's buying habits. The German Law BGB section 117 may be an example of how this could be instituted in Swedish law.

    Moms på elektroniska tjänster2011Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In 2002 the member states of EU took a decision regarding whether to introduce a special tax base on digital supplies or not. This tax base was later on implemented to the member states domestic laws. Question may sometimes arise as to where or by whom VAT should be paid regarding electronically supplies. The administrative court and the Swedish government have made different judgments regarding two Swedish companies whose services already have been subject to VAT in other member states. While the administrative court sentenced company A to pay VAT the government exempted company B.

    This bachelor thesis will examine how tax claims regarding the same electronically supply can occur in different member states and if the providers are selling to or from a permanent establishment or if they are to be considered as distributors.

    The answer to the first question can partly be due to the difference between Swedish law and EU-law regarding the different use of word for designating a taxable person. The words used for designating a taxable person have different meanings which can constitute confusion. It can furthermore be due to the vague and broad definition for the term electronically supplies and the differences that occur, regarding what can be covered by the definition of electronically supplies.

    Providers of digital supplies shall pay VAT in the country where the buyer has his place of business or where the fixed establishment is located to which the supplies are provided. Regarding revenue or acquisition it is the one who acts like the real seller or the customer who acquires and consumes the provided service who determines where the supply is situated. The main elements for the services provided have to be examined.

    Providers of digital supplies are not to be regarded as distributors because they do not meet the criteria’s that are set out for the term.

    Secure Privacy-Friendly Instant Messaging (IM) for Guidepal2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    It is fascinating, and yet often neglected, that a user’s privacy can be invaded notonly by the absence of security measures and mechanisms, but also by improperor inadequate usage of security services and mechanisms. When designingsecure systems, we must consider what services are needed and what is not.The work in this thesis revolves around privacy-friendly instant messaging (IM)systems. In such a system, an inadequate usage of security measures leads tohaving IM servers being able to intercept or gather users’ private conversations.An improper usage of security measures could bring about non-repudiationwhich is desirable when signing contracts, but unwelcome in IM and privateconversations.We will look into requirements of the desired IM system, study the currentstate-of-the-art solutions, deploy an IM server, and briefly extend an existingmodern privacy-friendly IM protocol and an open source mobile application tomeet our security and privacy requirements. This extended IM application iscalled Guidepal-IM and is available as open source1The thesis work is introduced and carried out at Guidepal, a startup companyin Stockholm. It is therefore supervised partly at Guidepal and partly at KTH.Since Guidepal is also looking into possibilities of integrating an IM featureto its current social media apps, our contribution would also briefly extend tostudying the limitations and recommendations for Guidepal’s social media appto help user privacy preservation.

    The Process of Post-Merger Organizational Identification: An analysis of mergers and acquisitions2019Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today, mergers and acquisitions often grab headlines due to the large sums of money involved, and the number of stakeholders affected by it. Still, the increase in merger and acquisition activities, the capital involved, and the pervasiveness of these activities stand in sharp contrast to their high rates of failures. Scholars have attributed the failure of mergers and acquisitions to management failure when it comes to dealing with human aspects during the integration phase.

    The purpose of this paper was to examine how individual’s identities change overtime in a merger. More specifically, it examines the process of post-merger organizational identification in merger contexts through the lens of social identity theory. From this purpose, we formulated the following research question and two sub-questions:

    • • How can post-merger identification be managed and integrated in an organization?
    • o How can organizational identities transit from a pre-merger state to a post-merger state successfully?
    • o What is the outcome of the post-merger identification process?

    The method used in this study was qualitative with an interpretive approach, which allowed us to gain a deeper understanding regarding the purpose and to answer our research question. Primary data came from purposive sampling, where 14 semi-structured interviews with individuals with various managerial positions in post-merger integrations were conducted to gain an understanding of how they tackled the integration process. The secondary data used resulted from previous research, literature, articles and other internet sources. The interviews were qualitatively analyzed through a thematic coding procedure.

    The backbone of our theory consists of perspectives on mergers and acquisitions from the lens of social identity theory. Particularly, it was used to understand the post-merger organizational identification process. The theoretical components were used to understand group formations and intra- and intergroup relationships, the effects mergers have on individuals, and what the effects of the outcomes of post-merger identification have on group and organizational identity.

    Our findings disclose that organizational identities are exclusive by nature and that they remain in this state unless managerial actions are taken which triggers commitment from groups to change. These actions must combine communication efforts with managerial interventions which promote intergroup cooperation, prototypical norms and values. Depending on the actions and the goal of the merger, the nature of the post-merger identity is a combination of two identities which forms an overarching one, or an assimilation of one identity into another.

    The contributions from this study come in two forms: theoretical and managerial. The theoretical contributions come through our findings showing how organizational identity emerge, change and how they are formed. The managerial contributions provide recommendations on how practitioners should facilitate the process, the vital role the manager has in the process and approaches they could take based on our findings.

    Ledarskap i den kreativa processen: En studie om små dataspelsföretag2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Title: Leadership in the creative process: A study about small computer game companies.

    Problem: Currently there is a lack of studies that focus on different leadership perspectives effect on creativity within groups. There is a lack of information about how leadership shapes and the leadership’s role in the creative process, especially in creative intensive industries. A big part of previous research focuses on countries like USA and Japan, but not Sweden. The computer game industry is a fast changing industry, therefore there are many challenges and business opportunities that organizations might lack knowledge about.

    Purpose: The purpose of this essay is to gain an understanding for what leadership in the creative process in small computer game companies look like. At the same time we want contribute knowledge and understanding about the leadership's influence on the creative process.

    Method: The study is based on a interpretive social science perspective with a qualitative research strategy. A phenomenological approach has been used to capture the respondent's’ experience of leadership in the creative process in the computer game industry with the help of semi structured interviews. The research approach was abductive due to the researchers constantly going between data and known theories when searching after the most probable explanations. During processing of data a phenomenographic data analysis model was used.

    Conclusion: Different leadership perspectives work differently under different circumstances. According to the theoretical framework leadership theories does not necessarily exclude one from another, rather aspects from different leadership theories are combinable. Since there are many kinds of computer game companies it is imperative to understand one’s own organization and to be open to pick aspects from different leadership theories to tailor a leadership perspective that fits the organization's context.

    De förlorade sönerna återvänder hem: En kvalitativ studie om återvändande Daish-krigare från Göteborg, stadens strategi mot terrorism och arbetet mot våldsbejakande extremism2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Svenska medborgare har anslutit sig till terrororganisationen Daish. Många av dessa individer kommer från Göteborg. Syftet med denna forskning är att undersöka hur det kom sig att göte-borgare är överrepresenterade bland svenska Daish-medlemmar. Många av Daish-resenärerna har återvänt till Göteborg. I denna forskning undersöks också Göteborg stads strategi för åter-vändande Daish-medlemmar och hur radikaliseringsprocessen ser ut för individer som ansluter sig till våldsbejakande extremism.

    I denna uppsats tillämpade vi kvalitativ metod med semistrukturerade intervjuer. Materialet i uppsatsen grundar sig på intervjuer med två göteborgare som har anslutit sig till Daish och sedan återvänt till Göteborg. Intervjuer har också hållits med tre poliser och två so-cialarbetare som arbetar mot våldsbejakande extremism i Göteborg.

    Resultaten visar att Göteborg sticker ut i listan bland Sveriges särskilt utsatta om-råden, och att orsaken till att Göteborg är överrepresenterat beror på segregation och utanför-skap. Resultaten visar att vissa stadsdelar i Göteborg har hög arbetslöshet, låg utbildning och dåliga skolresultat. Klyftan mellan utsatta områden och övriga Göteborg växer. Invånarna i dessa områden upplever detta som orättvist, diskriminerande samt att det väcker frustration. Undersökningen visar att klyftan utnyttjas av individer med religiös, klan eller patriarkal makt som ersätter den demokratiska strukturen i de segregerade stadsdelarna. Terrororganisationen Daish är en av aktörerna som har utnyttjat övriga samhällets frånvaro i utsatta stadsdelar. In-formanterna påpekar att Daish-rekryterare överöser religiös propaganda på individer som redan är frustrerade på samhället.

    Möjligheten att utföra LCA i en totalentreprenad: En studie om LCA i en totalentreprenad2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The environment is an important issue in society today. Emissions contribute to medium temperature rises gradually allowing the consequences on the nature, climate and society. The construction industry accounts for approximately 40 % of all energy use in Sweden. The environment in various ways, namely that different lifestyles and ways of life such as heating residences, waste management, travel to and from work affects the adverse impact on the environment. With the help of the growing awareness of the environment and the impetus given to it by the public authorities to reduces the environmental impact and energy use. LCA is a systematic analysis that is new in the construction industry where construction processes measured by the flow of energy and material usage. LCA can help decision makers by performing the LCA can be developed in analytical evaluations environmentally. Without LCA would investment, costs may be the most important thing for the decision makers than the environmental benefits. The aim of this work is to perform a life cycle assessment in the construction process with total construction and following questions is: • Possibilities to perform LCA in this construction form? • What demands are made from the client? • Possibilities and difficulties with total construction to perform LCA? The aim of this thesis is to illustrate how a life cycle analysis can be performed in a total construction. The study will highlight the role of the client. The focus will be on project Kungsljuset in Borlänge. The method of accounting analysis of the life cycle of the construction project is used and performed in a total construction. Interviews with the project management for this object. The result was unfortunately that there was a lack of data for the implement of LCA in this project. The reason was the knowledge and interest of the lack of both the client and the material supplier. It is required that the client demands on the material supplier and entrepreneur to specify the material and other resources used in this construction project.

    Har elever tillräckligt med tid för att äta?: En undersökning på högstadieelevers upplevelser av skolmåltiden2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Meal at school is a part of the school studies and it is important for health, but is also a prerequisite for both learning and enjoyment.  The school meal can provide students an opportunity to recover from their studies but sometimes students perceive the meal situation as stressful. It is important that the food environment at school works well for school children, so they do not have to rush during the meal and they can get the opportunity to eat in peace. The purpose of this study was to investigate how students perceive lunch break at school. If they feel they get enough time to eat and how they feel during the meal situation in the school restaurant. The research approach of this study was qualitative and the method of data collection was focus groups. Data were analyzed as a content analysis. The aim of the study were secondary school students in grade 7 and 9, one class from each grade was selected. The study was conducted at a secondary school in a municipality in Sweden with approximately 210 000 inhabitants. The results of the study show that students at secondary school feel they have enough time to eat lunch, but the lunch break is too short. The meal environment in the school restaurant is perceived as very messy and stressful. The meal situation was experienced as more stressful at grade 7 students than 9th grade students.  The conclusion was that students need longer lunch break and meal environment is perceived as stressful.

    Abstract [en]

    Background: There are several diseases that may cause a person to undergo a stoma surgery. Those who get a stoma surgery may need to adjust their lives based on new conditions. Getting adequate information, support and care from the nurse can be of great help to those people who recently received a stoma.

    Aim: The aim was to describe how it is to live with a stoma.

    Method: A literature review was conducted where eleven peer reviewed articles were sought from three databases. The articles were analysed, reviewed and compiled. Differences and similarities identified in the previous research were sought and formed the basis for results.

    Results: Four themes were identified: The first was Life changes, the second: Sexuality and intimacy, the third: Support from nurses and allied and finally: Accept living with the stoma.

    Discussion: In the light of Katie Eriksson`s theories regarding health care and health, aspects such as suffering and awareness that increased knowledge and understanding of people`s own experiences, feeling and thoughts should help to promote health and relieve suffering.

    Flerspråkighet i förskolan: En intervjustudie om hur förskollärare stimulerar flerspråkiga barns språkutveckling2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag har undersökt hur förskollärare beskriver att de stödjer flerspråkiga barn i att utveckla både det svenska språket och deras modersmål. I och med att det befinner sig alltmer flerspråkiga barn i de svenska förskolorna är mitt syfte med studien att ta reda på fem förskollärares uppfattningar om flerspråkiga barns språkutveckling och vilka verktyg de beskriver att de använder i arbetet med att stimulera barns språkutveckling. Metoden för denna studie är kvalitativa intervjuer där jag har intervjuat fem förskollärare som arbetar på två olika förskolor. Studiens resultat diskuteras utifrån forskning om hur förskollärare arbetar med flerspråkiga barns språkutveckling. I resultatdiskussionen har även resonemang förts i relation till den sociokulturella teorin. Resultatet visar att förskollärarna menar att barn behöver kunna sitt modersmål så att de kan lära sig eller utveckla ett andraspråk i förskolan. Därför behövs det modersmålslärare som stödjer barnen i att utveckla modersmålet. Förskollärarna beskriver att de använder sig av vardagliga situationer för att stimulera barnens språk.

    Flerspråkiga barns språkutveckling i förskolan2018Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med studien är att studera flerspråkiga barns modersmålsutveckling i förskolan och hur pedagogerna kan hjälpa barnen med sitt modersmål när pedagogerna har svenska som sitt förstaspråk. Studien tar ett sociokulturellt perspektiv på lärande och metoden som använts för att samla in material för studien är kvalitativ intervju med fyra pedagoger från två förskolor. Slutsatsen från studien visade sig att pedagogerna använder olika sätt att stötta och utveckla flerspråkiga barnens modersmål och andraspråkutveckling genom att använda olika uttryckningsformer, till exempel upprepningar, bilder, symboler och kroppsspråk. Pedagogerna lyfter upp också att barnen känner trygghet när pedagogerna använder barnens modersmål, vilket gjorde att pedagogerna lärde sig enkla ord på barnens språk för att underlätta kommunikationen mellan barnen och pedagoger och mellan barn och barn.

    Utvärdering av Leicas multistations och laserskanners mätosäkerheter2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Presently there is no standard for the evaluation of measurement uncertainties for terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) despite the fact that the instrument has been on the market and used for a long time. Since the manufacturer's specifications do not always correspond with reality, it is important to have knowledge about how well the instrument performs. Numerous studies over the past decade have applied different approaches to estimate the measurement uncertainties on various TLS.

    The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare the measurement uncertainties of the TLS Leica ScanStation C10 with the multi station Leica Nova MS50 under two different weather conditions. The uncertainty was calculated using ISO 17123-5:2012, which is an international standard developed for acquiring measurement uncertainties of total stations, to investigate whether this standard could also be applicable for TLS. The survey, which took place outdoor at the University of Gävle, was carried out by scanning targets that were set up in a triangle formation from three stations. Both spheres and HDS-targets were scanned with the TLS while the MS50 only scanned spheres. The targets were scanned four times from each instrument setup. Cyclone was used to find the coordinates on the center of the targets which were used to calculate the uncertainties according to the ISO-standard. The results showed that the 3D-uncertainty of C10 with HDS-target and spheres were 2.9 mm and 3.5 mm during sunny conditions and 1.1 mm and 1.4 mm during cloudy conditions, respectively. In the case of the MS50, the uncertainty was 3.0 mm during sunny and 3.7 mm during cloudy conditions. MS50 demonstrated a higher 3D-uncertainty in both weather conditions due to high uncertainty in the vertical direction. In addition, a chi-two-test carried out on the TLS showed that the calculated uncertainty in plane and height did not significantly deviate from the manufacturer's specified uncertainty when using HDS-targets during cloudy conditions. Furthermore, it was found in the F-test that there was a significant difference in plane and height between two scans with the same instrument and target type in different weather conditions. MS50 did not show any significant difference at all. The results of this study showed that there will be a significantly lower uncertainty when scanning in cloudy conditions. Our conclusion is that it is possible to apply the standard to calculate the measurement uncertainties on TLS and ISO should consider using the same standard for TLS as the total station.

    Preparation and process optimization of encapsulating cellulose microspheres2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Microspheres are spherically shaped particles within the size range of 1-1000 μm in diameter.

    Due to the their small size and round shape, microspheres show many advantages in various

    applications such as pharmaceuticals, composites and coatings. The microspheres can be

    customized to fit a specific application and are manufactured in various forms such as solid,

    hollow and encapsulating.

    Encapsulating cellulose microspheres have been produced in this project by the emulsionsolvent

    evaporation technique. The purpose of this study was to further investigate the

    possibility of producing encapsulating microspheres with a size range of 10-50 μm that will

    have a high encapsulation. A second purpose of this study was optimizing the emulsifier

    system for the preparation of these spheres. This has been accomplished by varying several

    process parameters such as type of emulsifiers and solvents to study the effect on morphology

    and encapsulation efficiency. The analyses of the spheres were performed with optical

    microscopy, thermal gravimetric analyzer (TGA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

    The emulsifier type and concentration affected the encapsulation and size distribution but had

    no direct effect on the internal and external structure, which was multi-cellular and porous,

    respectively. The highest encapsulation in relation to average size was obtained with 0.1 v/v-

    % of the emulsifier mixture Emulsifier 1 (E1)/Emulsifier 2 (E2) (70/30 %). The solvent used

    to dissolve the polymer had a direct effect on encapsulation, a combination of Solvent 2 (S2)

    and Solvent 1 (S1) proved best for the three tested cellulose derivatives with low, medium and

    high number average molecular weight. The solvent also had an effect on the internal

    structure of the microspheres, becoming more core-shell when using the S1/S2 combination.

    Behandling av företagsandelar vid bodelning i anledning av äktenskapsskillnad: Särskilt om lagvalsfrågan2014Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Familjejurister ställs idag ofta inför komplicerade fall som leder till än mer komplicerade bedömningar när det gäller äktenskapsmål av internationell karaktär. Globaliseringen tar för var dag mer fart och många väljer att flytta över nationsgränserna där det händer att relationer och äktenskap ingås. Förekomsten av dubbelt medborgarskap blir även vanligare. För att kunna behärska internationella familjefrågor måste kunskap om svensk och utländsk internationell privat- och processrätt finnas. Det är sällan säkert vilket lands lag som är bäst och som går att åberopa. Beroende på vilket lands lag som tillämpas innebär det i vissa fall stora skillnader på resultat, bland annat i fall där företagsandelar finns inblandade. Förbises eventuella konsekvenser som de olika lagarna kan medföra leder det till svårigheter i fråga om gränsöverskridande äktenskap inte minst när det finns tillgångar av betydande värde, exv. företagsandelar. Området som reglerar juridiska frågor av internationell karaktär är den internationella privat- och processrätten. Den ger oss bland annat kunskap om jurisdiktion och lagval, dvs. huruvida domsrätt föreligger samt vilket lands lag som ska tillämpas av domstolar. Varje nation har sina egna internationella privaträttsliga regler varav många länders lagar inom området har ursprung i internationella konventioner eller EU-förordningar. Det internationella samarbetet är i vissa fall begränsat till regioner, exv. inomnordiska förhållanden eller länder inom EU. Olika länders lagar ser olika ut vad gäller äktenskapsförord samt bodelning, även inom EU är det stora skillnader. När en av två makar, som ingått äktenskap i Sverige men som senare tagit hemvist i England, sedan tröttnar på det nya hemvist landet och flyttar tillbaka till Sverige blir det överraskande att den ena parten kan hävda att annan lag än svensk lag ska tillämpas vid en bodelning. Viktigt att veta är att resultatet av en bodelning får olika effekter beroende på vilket lands lag det är som tillämpas på förmögenhetsförhållandet. I fall där företagsandelar finns inblandade uppstår känsliga konflikter som inte bara påverkar individen själv utan ibland även företaget och övriga aktieägare. Konsekvenserna av att inte vara juridiskt förberedd genom äktenskapsförord eller bolagsordning med aktieägaravtal kan innebära ekonomiskt bakslag för aktieägaren eller företaget.

    Light-emitting nano-porous silicon structures fabricated using a plasma hydrogenation technique2005In: Materials Science and Engineering B: Solid-State Materials for Advanced Technology, ISSN 0921-5107, Vol. 124-125, no SUPPL., p. 483-487Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The preparation of porous silicon films by DC-plasma hydrogenation and subsequent annealing of amorphous silicon films on silicon and glass substrates is reported for the first time. The effects of varying plasma power and annealing temperatures have been investigated and characterized by scanning-electron microscopy, transmission-electron microscopy, and photoluminescence. A plasma density of about 5.5 W/m2 and hydrogenation-annealing temperatures of about 400 °C was found to be suitable for the formation of nano-crystalline silicon films with grain diameters of the order of 3-10 nm. The intensity and wavelength of the emitted visible light were found to depend on the hydrogenation and annealing conditions, and patterning of the silicon films using standard lithography allowed the creation of light-emitting patterns.
