  2. Magnetic Catheters for Cardiac Arrhythmia Ablations 

    Chautems, Christophe (2019)
    Effective radiofrequency ablation for patients affected by cardiac arrhythmias corresponds to significant and long-term improvements in their quality of life and a significant reduction in the risk of sudden cardiac death. These procedures do not always succeed, primarily due to the inability to precisely and accurately navigate a catheter inside the heart. By enabling the precise control of a flexible catheter using external magnetic ...

  4. Environmental Assessment of Food Losses and Reduction Potential in Food Value Chains 

    Beretta, Claudio (2018)
    In order to enable future generations to lead a decent life, human consumption of natural resources and impacts on the environment must urgently be reduced. A cornerstone among all human activities is food consumption, which is responsible for roughly one third of all environmental impacts of consumption. The food supply chain is inefficient, as present studies estimate roughly one third of the edible food to be wasted globally. There are ...

  6. Understanding the Value of Travel Time. 

    Dubernet, Ilka (2019)
    Project appraisal is an essential part of policy making, in transportation and elsewhere. To this end, different valuation methods are used. One of the most important evaluation tool is the Cost-Benefit-Analysis. Often, travel time savings account for the largest share of the gains in Cost-Benefit-Analyses. Therefore, they are a central element of the analyses, making its accurate determination of great importance for transport policy ...

  7. Part-to-Part Control in Deep Drawing 

    Fischer, Pascal (2019)
    The aim of the thesis is to introduce and develop a part-to-part control algorithm which only uses the settings of the press as control variables. As a state variable, the draw-in is evaluated based on simulations. In addition, the simulations of a kitchen sink are chosen as a baseline model for the design of a possible control algorithm. For the baseline model, variant simulations are carried out in AutoForm and LS-Dyna to evaluate ...

  8. Additive Fertigung in der industriellen Serienproduktion: Bauteilidentifikation und Gestaltung 

    Leutenecker-Twelsiek, Bastian (2019)
    Additive Manufacturing (AM), often referred to as 3D printing, is developing very dynamically. The technology and its machines are so mature that additive series production of final components is possible. The digital process chain and in particular the freedom of design are the outstanding properties of the process. If these advantages are properly exploited, serial components can be produced economically - despite the still high ...

  9. Soft-Sensing, Automation, and Diagnosis for Nitrification 

    Thürlimann, Christian M. (2019)
    Nitrification of wastewater requires control for the purposes of efficiency and of stability. However, first, the highly complex microbial community in wastewater treatment plants and very different compositions of wastewaters impede a complete understanding of nitrification. Second, the determination of the states of the process is seldom exact because sensors are subject to a high level of wear and tear. Consequently, instrumentation, ...

  10. High-speed infrared monitoring and simulations of bulk metallic glass casting 

    Haag, Fabian Friedrich (2018)
    Bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) are exceptional candidates for small, highly precise, load-bearing parts in the mm- to cm-range. Their high strength and elasticity make them superior to their crystalline counterparts. In order to obtain the amorphous atomic structure of this special group of alloys, the molten material must be quenched sufficiently quickly to below their glass transition. Die casting into permanent molds made of copper has ...

  11. Leukocyte migration through afferent lymphatic vessel: molecular mechanisms and cellular interactions 

    Hunter, Morgan Campbell (2019)
    Afferent lymphatic vessels mediate the transport of antigen and leukocytes to draining lymph nodes, thereby serving as immunologic communication highways between peripheral tissues and lymph nodes. The main cell types migrating via this route are antigen-presenting dendritic cells (DCs) and antigen-experienced T cells. While DC migration is important for maintenance of tolerance and induction of adaptive immunity in draining lymph nodes, ...

  12. Perovskites as Electrocatalysts for Oxygen Evolution Reaction for Alkaline Water Electrolysis 

    Kim, Bae-Jung (2019)
    The world is evolving to become more energy-intensive while energy demand continues to rise. For this, the energy economy has been heavily relying on non-renewable energy sources causing incurable effects to the environment. It was only recently, the awareness of environmental impact has elevated and more efforts are being invested in mainstreaming renewable energy sources to convey clean and sustainable energy for the future generations. ...

  13. Development of a Human Primary Intestine Chip and Identification of Species-Specific Microbiome Metabolites Enhancing Enterohemorrhagic E. Coli Pathogenesis 

    Tovaglieri, Alessio (2019)
    The human intestine and its microbiome play an extremely important role in regulating human pathologies such as inflammatory disease and bacterial infections. Due to the complexity of human studies there has been a great effort in developing in vitro models mimicking the complex human intestinal physiology, such as Gut Chip. The Gut Chip is a microfluidic device that emulates normal tissue-tissue interface and mimics the complex physiological, ...

  14. Corporate Governance und Krisenresistenz 

    Froelicher, Luca (2019)
    Die vorliegende Dissertation untersucht die unterschiedliche Vulnerabilität grosser Finanzinstitute in Finanzkrisen sowie die Gründe ihrer Resilienz. Am Beispiel dreier global tätiger schweizerischer Privatversicherungsunternehmen analysiert die Dissertation in einem historischen Vergleich die unterschiedlich stark ausgeprägte Betroffenheit von finanziellen Schocks in der Zwischenkriegszeit (1919-1939) und die Krisenresistenz dieser ...
