  1. 1. Performance-based design of ventilation systems. Potential and limitations regarding indoor air quality

    Author : Ragib Kadribegovic; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ventilation; prescriptive design; indoor air quality; air cleaning; energy efficiency; performance-based design; recirculation;

    Abstract : It has been increasingly common to design for increased ventilation rates above legislative requirements specified in building codes and other norms as the most optimum way to improve indoor air quality. However, this concept has recently been challenged, for example, by studies demonstrating that the emissions or pollution from used traditional particle filters increases proportionally with air flow through the filter.

    Author : Robert Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CFD; Fines; Manufactured sand; Aggregates; Air classification; Concrete;

    Abstract : Aggregates are defined as particles of rock which in combination are used as a civil engineering material. It is used in bounded form in asphalt and concrete. Historically natural sand has been used as fine aggregates for concrete production in Sweden. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Premixed Gas Fuelled Stirling Engine Combustors with Combustion Gas Recirculation

    Author : Magnus Pålsson; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vibration and acoustic engineering; Maskinteknik; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik; Motors and propulsion systems; Motorer; framdrivningssystem; hydraulik; Mechanical engineering; hydraulics; vacuum technology; termodynamik; Termisk teknik; applied thermodynamics; Thermal engineering; heat pipe; ejector; solar energy; CGR; recirculation; EGR; catalytic combustion; premix combustion; Stirling engine; combustor;

    Abstract : The main objective in the research described in this thesis was to design and test the use of lean premixed combustion using combustion gas recirculation for gas fuelled Stirling engine combustors. A system using a flame-arrester type of flame-holder to stabilize the flame and an ejector system for the recirculation of combustion gas was designed and tested in the laboratory. READ MORE

  4. 4. Thermodynamic aspects and heat transfer characteristics of HiTAC furnaces with regenerators

    Author : Nabil Rafidi; Wlodzimierz Blasiak; John Witton; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Combustion; flameless; oxy-fuel; heat-recirculation; gas-recirculation; heat transfer; furnace; radiant-tube; regenerative burner; honeycomb; fixed-bed; Thermal energy engineering; Termisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : Oxygen-diluted Combustion (OdC) technology has evolved from the concept of Excess Enthalpy Combustion and is characterized by reactants of low oxygen concentration and high temperature. Recent advances in this technology have demonstrated significant energy savings, high and uniform thermal field, low pollution, and the possibility for downsizing the equipment for a range of furnace applications.

  5. 5. Prediction of Cooling Air Flow in Electric Generators

    Author : Pirooz Moradnia; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CFD; Multiple Reference Frame; PIV; Total Pressure Measurements; Electric Generator; Experimental Measurements; 5-hole Pressure Probe Measurements; Flow Prediction; OpenFOAM;

    Abstract : The cooling air flow in hydro power electric generators is investigated experimentally and numerically. A fully predictive numerical approach is presented and validated, in which the inlet and outlet boundaries are eliminated from the computational domain. READ MORE
