  1. 1. Code-switching in Chicano Theater : Power, Identity and Style in Three Plays by Cherríe Moraga

    Author : Carla Jonsson; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : Linguistics; code-switching; Chicano theater; Chicano; Chicano discourse; power; identity; language ideology; third space; style; hybridity; code-mixing; Lingvistik; HUMANITIES and RELIGION Languages and linguistics Linguistic subjects Linguistics; HUMANIORA och RELIGIONSVETENSKAP Språkvetenskap Lingvistikämnen Lingvistik; English; engelska;

    Abstract : The thesis examines local and global functions of code-switching and code-mixing in Chicano theater, i.e. in writing intended for performance. The data of this study consists of three published plays by Chicana playwright Cherríe Moraga. READ MORE

  2. 2. Application of Numerical Aerothermal Models on Jet Engine Combustors

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Stefan Olovsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1994]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fysik; Physics; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics;

    Abstract : The use of numerical simulations with combustion for predicting the flow field in a gas turbine combustor or afterburner may reduce the required time in the development process. To investigate the performance of numerical simulation codes some different combustor geometries was studied. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bio-diesel Spray Combustion Modeling Based on a Detailed Chemistry Approach

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Junfeng Yang; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningsmekanik; Fluid mechanics; bio-diesel; thermo-physical properties; spray characteristics; detailed chemistry combustion; emissions formation; engine modeling;

    Abstract : The increased use of bio-diesel fuel is expected to reduce emissions of carbon-containing greenhouse gases. To optimize the application of bio-diesel in internal combustion engines, a theoretical model has been developed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fluid and Solid Particle Dynamics in Stirred Vessels

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Mattias Ljungqvist; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1999]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Kemi; Chemistry; stirred vessels; suspension of solids; pitched blade turbine; laser Doppler anemometry; phase-Doppler anemometry; computational fluid dynamics; closed vessels; mixing time; impeller modelling; multi-fluid model;

    Abstract : The present thesis deals with the fluid dynamics of stirred vessels and particularly those that are to be used in conjunction with solids suspensions. Stirred vessels are very common in the process industry and large amounts of energy can be saved by optimising their operation. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Impact of Piston Motion and In-Cylinder Charge Composition on Energy Release, Auto Ignition and Emission Formation in Premixed Charge Internal Combustion Engines

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Ola Stenlåås; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : sprängämnen; bränslen; Carbochemistry; petrochemistry; fuels and explosives technology; Petrokemi; Internal Combustion Engine; Emission; SI; Spark Ignition; HCCI; Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition; zone model; Chemical Kinetic; Engine simulation; Reformed Methanol; Hydrogen; Knock; Auto Ignition; NO; Piston Motion; Nitric Oxide; Premixed Charge; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The results presented in this thesis can be divided into four areas of investigation: Investigation of the effect of new volume-crank angle relations on engine emissions, power and efficiency; investigation of nitrogen oxides effect on auto ignition and knock in SI engines; investigation of premixed SI and HCCI engine operation with the alternative fuels hydrogen and reformed methanol gas (RMG); software development of a detailed chemical kinetics zonal engine model. Model development of the in-house two-zone chemical kinetic code focused on expansion of the Jacobian matrix to allow simulations of variable in-cylinder charge. READ MORE
