    Shear wave velocity is a fundamental parameter in soil dynamics and geotechnical earthquake engineering. The Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves (MASW) method is a relatively new non-invasive technique to evaluate the near-surface shear wave velocity ...
  • Halldórsdóttir, Nanna Hlín (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of History and Philosophy, 2018-09-28)
    In recent years, the concept of vulnerability has gained momentum both in feminist philosophy and as an interdisciplinary concept. The philosopher Judith Butler is well known for exposing how hidden ontological assumptions permeate social institutions ...
  • Koistinen, Olli-Pekka (Aalto University School of Science, 2019)
    Chemical reactions and other transitions involving rearrangements of atoms can be studied theoretically by analyzing a potential energy surface defined in a high-dimensional space of atom coordinates. Local minimum points of the energy surface correspond ...
  • Sigurvinsson, Jón Ásgeir (University of Iceland, School of Humanities, Faculty of Theology and Religious Studies, 2019)
    Hinn svokallaði þakkarsálmur Hiskía konungs í 38. Kafla Jesaja hefur löngum þótt afar erfiður viðfangs, ekki síst vegna meints bágborins varðveisluástands 16. vers, sem auk v. 17a, hefur verið dæmt óskiljanlegt og jafnvel kallað “martröð riskýrandans” ...
