    Designing dynamic textile patterns2010Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Designing Dynamic Textile Patterns Progress in chemistry, fibres and polymers technology provides textile designers with new expressive materials, making it possible to design dynamic textile patterns, where several different expressions are inherent in the same textile, textiles that, for example, could alternate between a striped and checkered pattern. Textiles are traditionally designed and produced to keep a given, static expression during their life cycle; a striped pattern is supposed to keep its stripes. In the same way textile designers are trained to design for static expressions, where patterns and decorations are meant to last in a specific manner. However, things are changing. The textile designer now deals also with a new raw material, a dynamic textile, ready to be further designed, developed and/or programmed, depending on functional context. This transformation in practice is not an easy one for the designers. Designers need to learn how to design with these new materials and their specific qualities, to be able to develop the full expressional potential inherent in “smart textiles design”. The aim of this thesis is to display, and discuss, a methodology for designing dynamic textile patterns. So far, something that mainly has been seen in different experimental and conceptual prototypes, in artistic expressions and for commercial efforts etc. In terms of basic experimental research this thesis explores the turn in textile design practice through a series of design experiments with focus on contributing to identifying and characterizing new design variables, new design methods and new design techniques as a foundation for dynamic textile patterns.

    Färgföränderliga textila uttryck, en undersökning genom växtfärgning2013Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Jag blev beviljad ett vistelsestipendium på Eckerö Post och Tullhus, Åland under perioden 10 juni till den 21 juli sommaren 2013, detta är min reseberättelse om vad jag gjorde, med dagboksanteckningar och bilder från vistelsen och utställning i min atelje i samband med öppethus. I naturen och årstiderna finns en ständig föränderlighet, samtidigt som det finns en konstant upprepning i dygnet och året. I mina textila experiment växt-färgar jag utan betmedel (alltså inga tillsatta kemikalier) för att undersöka naturens inneboende flyktighet, där något träder fram och ett annat försvinner. Kommer de Ålandsfärgade textilierna förändras om tio månader, ett år, fem år?

    In the making: designing with smart textiles2010In: Nordic Textile Journal, ISSN 1404-2487, no 2, 14-19 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The past decade has seen an increasing interest in our small-scale experimental textiles at the design lab at the Swedish School of Textiles. Representatives from various industries and professions have visited to find out more about our so called smart textiles and to collect product samples. We want to encourage designers to work directly with the textile material in the design process to enlarge the understanding for how to design with smart textile materials. Weand we are currently working to develop a collection of samples of “smart textile sample collection ́s for designers to use and work with, enabling them to better understand the great potential of smart textiles. This article also describes some new design variables regarding dynamic textile patterns; a result from the thesis Designing Dynamic Textile Patterns (Worbin 2010).

    Irreversible Color Expressions2013Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary preconception of color within textile design is more or less seen as a static and measurable phenomena, but in this project will the opposite be investigated, textile colors are crafted to investigate expressions that is evolving over time. This practice based design research project presents a series of textile color samples that will give guidance to a number of plant dyed expressions. Textiles are dyed without any mordant, meaning no added chemical or salts that will influence on the color or color fastness. The objective in this project is to investigate and visualize color changing textile expressions from plant dye, and to verify the changing process within the color samples. This will be documented and fulfilled in two phases: 

    Åland 2013 - Report no.1 (this report) plant dyed samples are documented and presented as visual scanned color samples with foundational information like; materials, plants, dyeing methods etc. Evaluation of first phase in the project covering what visual color you get from different combination of textile materials/fibres and plants etc. 

    Åland 2013 - Report no.2 (to be presented) same samples will be juxtaposed and presented a second time, after being exposed to light etc. in x time. Evaluation and comparison between the scanned samples presented in report no. 1 and in report no. 2 with respect to visual color changes.

    Textile Possibilities2008Other (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Textile can be more than just patterns and washability. Today it can have other functions, visible or hidden and they can be interactive. Textile has simply become high-tech. What used to be considered science fiction is today reality. The exhibition TEXTILE POSSIBILITIES focuses on experiments that explores the possibilities that modern textile materials offers. There are no actual products on display in the exhibition, instead the latest research from textile is shown. For instance, visitors can experience how electricity, heat and movements alter colours and structures within the textiles. The exhibition shows the research process and lets the visitor interact with the different textile prototypes. The exhibition TEXTILE POSSIBILITIES aims to inspire, convey knowledge and to visualise a possible textile development. It shows a way for how experimental design research through collaboration with the commercial community can affect and build it’s own future here in Sweden.

    Abstract [en]

    Trace Textiles are traditionally designed and produced to more or less keep a given, static expression during their life cycle; a striped pattern is supposed to keep its stripes. Also textile designers are traditionally trained to design for static expressions, where patterns and decorations are meant to last in a specific manner. However, things are changing. The carpet Trace is part of a series of design experiments that focus on contributing to identifying and characterizing new design variables, new design methods and new design techniques as a foundation for dynamic textile patterns. Textile designer deals with a new raw material, a dynamic textile, ready to be further designed, developed and/or programmed after its being produced. Expressional changes in real time due to pressure This design example is made as a carpet that lights up when someone walks on it. The light is achieved by using an electroluminescent wire, that requires an electrical power source to be switched on / off which is controlled by a program. This is a reversible textile pattern and will change back to its initial expression when there is no applied pressure on the carpet. Not only designers need to learn how to design with these new materials and their specific qualities that can be seen as a kind of functional styling with dynamic textile patterns. Both users and production perspective need to be further investigated to be able to develop a fully expressional potential and function inherent in these “smart textiles”. If you are interested to know more about dynamic textile patterns and our design examples all our publications are available from The Swedish School of Textiles digital library Bada (bada.hb.se). For example you can find Linda Worbins thesis Designing Dynamic Textile Patterns and Anna Perssons thesis Exploring textiles as materials for interaction design. Trace is funded by Smart Textiles, Vinnova and The Swedish School of Textiles, University of Borås, Sweden. The project is initiated by Linda Worbin and made by Anna Persson, Christian Mohr and Linda Worbin Smart textile Design Lab, in a collaboration with Kasthall Carpet AB.

    Healthcare managers in negative media focus: a qualitative study of personification processes and their consequences2014In: BMC Health Services Research, ISSN 1472-6963, E-ISSN 1472-6963, Vol. 14, no 8Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Background Over the last decade healthcare management and managers have increasingly been in focus in public debate. The purpose of the present study was to gain a deeper understanding of how prolonged, unfavorable media focus can influence both the individual as a person and his or her managerial practice in the healthcare organization. Methods In-depth interviews (n = 49) with 24 managers and their superiors, or subordinate human resources/information professionals, and partners were analyzed using a grounded theory approach.Results The conceptual model explains how perceived uncertainties related to the managerial role influence personification and its negative consequences. The role ambiguities comprised challenges regarding the separation of individual identity from the professional function, the interaction with intra-organizational support and political play, and the understanding and acceptance of roles in society. A higher degree of uncertainty in role ambiguity increased both personification and the personal reaction to intense media pressure. Three types of reactions were related to the feeling of being infringed: avoidance and narrow-mindedness; being hard on self, on subordinates, and/or family members; and resignation and dejection. The results are discussed so as to elucidate the importance of support from others within the organization when under media scrutiny. Conclusions The degree of personification seems to determine the personal consequences as well as the consequences for their managerial practice. Organizational support for managers appearing in the media would probably be beneficial for both the manager and the organization.

    Use of industrial hemp fibers to reinforce wheat gluten plastics2009In: Journal of polymers and the environment, ISSN 1566-2543, E-ISSN 1572-8919, Vol. 17, no 4, 259-266 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The next generation of manufactured products must be sustainable and industrially eco-efficient, making materials derived from plants an alternative of particular interest. Wheat gluten (WG) is an interesting plant material to be used for production of plastic similar materials due to its film-forming properties. For usage of plastics in a wider range of applications, composite materials with improved mechanical properties are demanded. The present study investigates the possibilities of reinforcing WG plastics with hemp fibers. Samples were manufactured using compression molding (130 °C, 1600 bar, 5 min). Variation in fiber length, content (5, 10, 15 and 20 wt%) and quality (poor, standard, good) were evaluated. Mechanical properties and structure of materials were examined using tensile testing, light and scanning electron microscopy. Hemp fiber reinforcement of gluten plastics significantly influenced the mechanical properties of the material. Short hemp fibers processed in a high speed grinder were more homogenously spread in the material than long unprocessed fibers. Fiber content in the material showed a significant positive correlation with tensile strength and Young's modulus, and a negative correlation with fracture strain and strain at maximum stress. Quality of the hemp fibers did not play any significant role for tensile strength and strain, but the Young's modulus was significantly and positively correlated with hemp fiber quality. Despite the use of short hemp fibers, the reinforced gluten material still showed uneven mechanical properties within the material, a result from clustering of the fibers and too poor bonding between fibers and gluten material. Both these problems have to be resolved before reinforcement of gluten plastics by industrial hemp fibers is applicable on an industrial scale.

    Effects of fiber blending and diamines on wheat gluten materials reinforced with hemp fiber2010In: Journal of Materials Science, ISSN 0022-2461, E-ISSN 1573-4803, Vol. 45, no 15, 4196-4205 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Wheat gluten (WG) is a promising base material for production of "green'' plastics, although reinforcement is needed in more demanding applications. Hemp fiber is a promising reinforcement source but difficulties exist in obtaining desired properties with a WG-based matrix. This study aimed at improving fiber dispersion and fiber-matrix interactions using a high speed blender and a diamine as a cross-linker. Samples were manufactured using compression molding, two types of blenders and addition of diamine. Mechanical properties were assessed with tensile testing. Tensile-fractured surfaces were examined with scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Protein polymerization and fiber-protein matrix interactions were examined using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). The results showed that a higher-speed grinding yielded a more even distribution of fibers and a more polymerized protein structure compared to a lower-speed grinding. However, these improvements did not result in increased strength, stiffness, and extensibility for the higher-speed grinding. The strength was increased when the grinding was combined with addition of a diamine (Jeffamine EDR-176). HPLC, SEM, and CLSM, indicated that diamine added samples showed a more "plastic'' appearance together with a stiffer and stronger structure with less cracking compared to samples without diamine. The use of the diamine also led to an increased polymerization of the proteins, although no effect on the fiber-protein matrix interactions was observed using microscopical techniques. Thus, for future successful use of hemp fibers to reinforce gluten materials, an appropriate method to increase the fiber-protein matrix interaction is needed.

    Social factors that influence consumers’ decisions when buying second-hand cars in China—Based on EKB model2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Today more and more people buy second-hand products on internet. As the typical durable goods, second-hand cars are very popular among consumers. In recent years, the sale of second-hand cars increases quickly in China. In addition, there is still potential in the second-hand market. On the other hand, consumers are the subject in the second-hand market. So what consumers take into consideration is important when buying second-hand cars. We have chosen some social factors that influence consumers’ decision when they purchase second-hand cars. Furthermore, we have analyzed the importance of these social factors and the relationship between factors.The purpose of this study is to give vehicle dealers a guide how consumers with different characteristics will pay attention to different factors of the cars but also to guide consumers to make a rational decision when they buy second-hand cars.We have chosen the EKB model as our basic theory. A quantitative research approach and cross sectional research design were used in this study. The link of our questionnaire was published in Baidu Tieba after being designed by SOJUMP and we collected 151 responses. Then, respondent demographics, cross tabulations analysis, one-way ANOVA analysis, Cronbach’s alpha, and sorting analysis were analyzed.The results show that information about the real condition of the car is the most important factor influencing customers when purchasing second-hand cars, price is the second most influencing factor, vehicle model and brand are the third and the fourth respectively, after-sales service ranks the least as most influencing factor.

    En självklar del av biblioteket: En studie av förhållandet mellan tvåbibliotek och Berättarministeriet2015Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This master's thesis aims to study the relationship between two publiclibraries and Berättarministeriet, a foundation that offers free writingworkshops for children in areas with high levels of unemployment. Theworkshops are located in spaces that formerly belonged to the libraries.Questions posed in this thesis are How can the relationship between thelibraries and Berättarministeriet be described?, Why did the relationship turnout differently in the two places? and How does the library see itself, inrelation to Berättarministeriet?The theories used are Ögland's taxonomy for relationships between librariesand local organizations, and Folkesson's theory on interaction betweendifferent professional groups, and this was studied through interviews. Theresults showed a relationship without much interaction, beyond a "handover"of children from one place to the other, with time and shortness of staff beingcontributing factors to the low level of collaboration. Regarding the differentrelationships in the two places the results were not conclusive, butnevertheless showed tendancies of issues in the legitimacy dimension, fromthe library towards Berättarministeriet. This may be due in part to a lack ofconcrete evidence of success, a high staff turnover, and not having naturalspaces in which to meet. As for the libraries' self-image, it showed aninstitution and a profession that sometimes feel overlooked. Several repliesbring up how libraries need to make themselves heard and let people knowhow important they are.

    With the rapid revolution within networks as well as social media, today people face areal well-rounded and colorful high-tech world. Indeed, the technology of socialmedia changes the way that people socialize and communicate. What is more, thepotential of the social media is limitless, because we can see the combination betweenthe classroom and networks for the communication within a group chatting on acourse discussion. This is really used in our life, especially in western countries. Bycomparison, the model or pattern of learning by using social media in China is quitedifferent. This is why this paper focuses on the perspective of undergraduates’attitudes as well as behaviors when they use Hatcheck during their studying life.Hatcheck is the biggest application for socializing in China and is seen as a ChineseFacebook. How can it change Chinese students’ manners to learn and how canstudents manage their learning process self-regulatory? This will be discussed withinthis paper.

    Spin Polarisation Exchange Scattering from Nickel and Iron2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is well known that the structure information through the use of Spin Polarised LowEnergy Electron Diffraction (SPLEED) is highly sensitive to the interaction potentialbetween the primary electrons and the electrons of the target, especially to the exchangeinteraction. Since the electrons in SPLEED penetrate the surface only a few latticespacing, it is extremely sensitive to the spin structure of a magnetic surface. The earlystudy of Feder [1] on Fe(110) provides a strong indication in this direction. The mainobjective of this work is to use the insights of our recent work [2,3] to study the spinpolarisation of the exchange-correlation potential. The differential cross sections for electronscattering from atoms with net spin, namely nickel and iron, have been calculated togetherwith studying the energy/wave vector dependence of the exchange scattering from surfacesof nickel and iron in glasses by calculating differential cross sections and the spin asymmetryusing Dirac equation. Comparison of predictions with observed spin dependent scattering intensities in amorphous magnetic alloys will give insight into surface magnetisation in these systems[4].

    Mouse Chromosome 19 and Distal Rat Chromosome 1: a Chromosome Segment Conserved in Evolution2001In: Hereditas, ISSN 0018-0661, E-ISSN 1601-5223, Vol. 134, no 1, 23-34 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Through a combination of radiation hybrid mapping and studies by FISH and zoo-FISH we have made a comparative investigation of the distal portion of rat chromosome 1 (RNO1) and the entire mouse chromosome 19(MMU19). It was found that homologous segments of RNO1 and MMU19 are similar in banding morphology and in length as determined by several different methods, and that the gene order of the 46 genes studied appears to be conserved across the homologous segments in the two species. High-resolution zoo-FISH techniques showed that MMU19 probes highlight only a continuous segment on RNO1 (Iq43-qter), with no detectable signals on other rat chromosomes. We conclude that these data suggest the evolutionary conservation of a chromosomal segment from a common rodent ancestor. This segment now constitutes the entire MMU19 and a large segment distally on RNO1q in the mouse and rat, respectively.

    Effect of ester compounds on biogas production: beneficial or detrimental?2014In: Energy Science & Engineering, Vol. 2, no 1, 22-30 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Esters are major flavor compounds in fruits, which are produced in high volume. The widespread availability of these compounds in nature attracts interest on their behavior in anaerobic digestion in waste and wastewater treatments. The aim of this work was to study the effects of various esters at different concentrations in anaerobic digestion followed by determination of their minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), and to study the effect of chain length of functional group and alkyl chain of ester on methane production. Addition of methyl butanoate, ethyl butanoate, ethyl hexanoate, and hexyl acetate at concentration up to 5 g L−1 increased methane production, while their higher concentrations inhibited the digestion process. The MIC values for these esters were between 5 and 20 g L−1. Except hexyl acetate, the esters at concentration 5 g L−1 could act as sole carbon source during digestion. For ethyl esters, increasing number of carbon in functional group decreased methane production. For acetate esters, alkyl chain longer than butyl inhibited methane production. Effect of ester on methane production is concentration-dependent.

    Board chairmanship and innovation in growth oriented firms: Opening up thethe black box of leadershio in the boardroom2014Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In this paper we aim to create a framework for the promotion of innovation through effective board chairpersonship in growth oriented firms. Team production theory is applied to provide a conceptual foundation for understanding the value creating potential of boards within the boundaries of the firm and its operations. Thereafter, we employ a case study approach using empirical data based on interviews with a selection of experienced board chairpersons. Our findings result in a tentative framework that identifies core activities of effective board leadership organized and managed by the chairperson of the board. Interestingly, some dimensions in this context are identified as prerequisites for effective boards, but do not directly promote firm-level innovations. Other dimensions were regarded as core activities contributing directly to the creation of innovation. While the prerequisites for effective boards were related to issues such as structure, processes and culture, the prerequisites for innovation promoting boards were primarily activities related to the cognitive aspects of the board’s work.

    Developments and trends in research on board leadership: a systematic literature review2014In: International Journal of Business Governance and Ethics, ISSN 1477-9048, E-ISSN 1741-802X, Vol. 9, no 3, 243-268 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper presents a systematic literature review of 139 articles on board leadership that were published in business and management journals since 1980s. Journal names, author country affiliations, topics and focus levels, theories, empirical contexts, and methodologies are presented and analysed. We also assemble and analyse this data thematically in order to identify and frame developments and trends in researchers’ ideas on board leadership. This analysis provides guidance for researchers by identifying different research streams on board leadership. The analysis may also serve as basis for theory development in board leadership research that can inform policy making and best practice recommendations.

    Creativity in entrepreneurship education2008In: Journal of Small Business and Enterprise Development, ISSN 1462-6004, E-ISSN 1758-7840, Vol. 15, no 2, 304- p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to use social cognitive theory to investigate entrepreneurial intent among participants in graduate entrepreneurship programs. Specifically, the authors test whether students’ creative potential is related to their intention to engage in entrepreneurship. Design/methodology/approach – Theoretically derived hypotheses are tested using multiple and ordinal regression analyses. Findings – High scores on a creativity test and prior entrepreneurial experiences are positively associated with entrepreneurial intentions, whereas perception of risks has a negative influence. Research limitations/implications – The authors’ theoretical predictors of entrepreneurial intention received strong support, indicating that creativity should be considered in models of entrepreneurial intentions. However, the use of intentions as dependent variable has its own weaknesses in that it may not distinguish between “dreamers” and “doers”. Practical implications – The findings indicate that exercises in creativity can be used to raise the entrepreneurial intentions of students in entrepreneurship education. Heterogeneity in creative styles among students also points to the problems of a “one-size-fits-all” approach to entrepreneurship education. Originality/value – The paper is the first to investigate the importance of creativity in entrepreneurship education and theoretical models of entrepreneurial intentions. Keywords Entrepreneurialism, Education, Students

    Characterization of Nizimuddinia zanardini macroalgae biomass composition and its potential for biofuel production.2015In: Bioresource Technology, ISSN 0960-8524, E-ISSN 1873-2976, Vol. 176, 196-202 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Nizimuddinia zanardini macroalgae, harvested from Persian Gulf, was chem. characterized and employed for the prodn. of ethanol, seaweed ext., alginic acid, and biogas. In order to improve the products yields, the biomass was pretreated with dil. sulfuric acid and hot water. The pretreated and untreated biomasses were subjected to enzymic hydrolysis by cellulase (15 FPU/g) and β-glucosidase (30 IU/g). Hydrolysis yield of glucan was 29.8, 82.5, and 72.7 g/kg for the untreated, hot-water pretreated, and acid pretreated biomass, resp. Anaerobic fermn. of hydrolyzates by Saccharomycescerevisiae resulted in the max. ethanol yield of 34.6 g/kg of the dried biomass. A seaweed ext. contg. mannitol and a solid residue contg. alginic acid were recovered as the main byproducts of the ethanol prodn. On the other hand, the biogas yield from the biomass was increased from 170 to 200 m3 per ton of dried algae biomass by hot water pretreatment. [on SciFinder(R)]
