  1. Interplay Between Brittle and Ductile Deformation in the Lower Crust (Musgrave Ranges, Central Australia) 

    Hawemann, Friedrich (2018)
    The localization of deformation in dry lower continental crust and the implied rheology have been investigated on the basis of field and laboratory observations from a well exposed and preserved section in Central Australia. The strength of the lower crust is the deciding factor determining whether deformation of crust and mantle are closely linked or decoupled, which is important for understanding the overall response to strain ...

  3. Large-scale Machine Learning for Point Cloud Processing 

    Hackel, Timo (2018)
    Machine learning has made phenomenal progress in the past decades. This work has a focus on the challenges and opportunities that come with machine learning in 3D space. We start the thesis with an efficient approach to point-wise semantic classification that can classify point clouds of significant size. The method is able to process the inhomogeneous and unstructured point distribution of typical 3D point clouds that are captured with ...

  5. Agricultural Management Effects on Nitrogen Cycling and Nitrous Oxide Emissions Across the Soil Profile 

    Verhoeven, Elizabeth (2018)
    In many agricultural systems, nitrogen (N) is the most common nutrient limiting plant growth, and widespread application of N fertilizers has contributed to huge gains in productivity across the world. This increase in crop production is necessary to feed a growing population and to mitigate the conversion of wild lands to crop lands. However, in parallel with increased N application and crop yields, N pollution has also increased ...

  6. Comportamiento estructural de vigas mixtas de sección cajón en estado límite último bajo la interacción de esfuerzos de flexión, cortante y torsión. Estudio teórico y experimental 

    Giraldo Soto, Alejandro (2017)
    This thesis presents a theoretical and experimental study regarding the behavior in Ultimate Limit State of composite box girders composed of a reinforced concrete slab and a steel box. These girders, which represent an usual typology in composite road bridges, are subjected to the interaction of bending, shear and torsional forces. In addition, some considerations regarding the connection between concrete and steel are made and the ...

  7. Treelines in the Swiss Alps: Growth Dynamics and Forest Succession in a Changing Climate 

    Jochner, Matthias Andreas (2017)
    The alpine treeline is one of the most prominent ecosystem boundaries in nature. The two ecosystems that are separated by this ecotone – the subalpine forest and the alpine tundra – provide essential ecosystem goods and services (EGS) in densely populated mountain regions like the European Alps. Ongoing global climate change with its temperature increase affects the major limiting factor of tree growth close to treeline. Moreover, mountain ...

  10. Mesh Mould: A Robotically Fabricated Structural Stay-in-Place Formwork System 

    Hack, Norman Peter (2018)
    Concrete is a highly versatile construction material, not only for the reason that it has excellent properties in terms of structural performance, building physics, availability and price, but also because it can be moulded into virtually any shape regardless of its geometric complexity. However, even though current digital design tools allow to effortlessly design and calculate structures, which are exploiting these properties, this ...
