Abstract

The automotive industry faces future important changes through adoption of several new complex technologies like” X-by-wire” systems for vehicle dynamic control and high focus on green technology, fuel efficiency hybrids and electric vehicles. The implications of these technologies require in-depth understanding of the vehicle behavior during lifetime cycle, in order to reach a maximum optimized design. Therefore this paper introduces an analysis of a long-term capture data collection from a fleet of serial production vehicles in normal everyday use, as a solution to the lack of information available to describe the vehicle dynamics and load over the systems in a sufficient way. The analysis brings knowledge-based information, where before was difficult to answer and where statements were mainly based on subjective explanation. Results reveals important information describing load cycles during vehicle lifetime for different control events with focus on the braking events.

Abstract

It is my distinct pleasure to make this presentation of the TSRC Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr Bill Collins from NC State University. Bill is well known in academic and industry circles for his contributions to Tobacco Science. Some have suggested that Bill Collins is the single person most identified with flue-cured tobacco at NC State and probably world-wide.

Abstract

The Malmö Diet Cancer (MDC) group is a population-based cohort (n = 28 098) among Malmö inhabitants, aged 45-73 years at the time of baseline examinations in 1991-1996. Data collection regarding socio-demography, anthropometry and lifestyle was extensive, and included nonfasting blood samples. A high validity diet history was used to determine the usual diet. Information regarding cancer morbidity and mortality from the Swedish Cancer Registry is assessed yearly. Findings support the accepted hypotheses that a lifetime overexposure to sex hormones (modern reproductive patterns) and obesity promote postmenopausal breast cancer. Also, women with high intakes (compared to low intakes) of fibre, folic acid and fermented milk products have lower risk of postmenopausal breast cancer. High intakes of alcohol and energyadjusted fat are associated with increased risk. Also, high intakes of dried soup-sauce-powders and of fried potatoes are associated with increased breast cancer risk. The MDC has two unique assets: the high validity dietary data and the well maintained bio bank. Since a multitude and diverse processes likely contribute to chronic disease the active use of biomarkers has become increasingly important to nutrition epidemiology. Clear information about the diet-breast cancer link is important to many women, because unlike reproductive factors diet is changeable throughout the lifecycle.
