  1. 1. Experimental study of bubble dynamics and transport

    Author : Gunilla Andrée; Strömningsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energiforskning; Energy research; Particle Streak Photography; Shadowgraph; Particle Image Velocimetry; Bubble dynamics; bubble transport;

    Abstract : The thesis concerns experimental studies of bubble motion and the transport of large particles and bubbles. Bubbly flows are encountered in many engineering applications where the bubbles play an important role for the mass transfer between the phases, e.g. in stirred reactors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Numerical modeling of deforming bubble transport related to cavitating hydraulic turbines

    Abstract : Cavitation is a problem in many hydroelectric power plants since it can cause adverse effects on performance and damage to nearby solid surfaces. The concerns of this thesis are the numerical aspects of flow simulations in cavitating hydraulic turbines which contain several difficulties: turbulent and complex flows, steady and moving parts of the geometry, bubble transport and cavitation development.

  3. 3. Mass Transport via Thermoplasmonics

    Author : Steven Jones; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : When a metallic nanoparticle is illuminated with light under resonant conditions, the free electron gas oscillates in such a way that substantial amplification of the local electric field amplitude is achieved – this is known as a plasmonic resonance. This resonance enhances both the optical scattering as well as absorption. READ MORE

    Abstract : Carbon-free nuclear power production can help to relieve the increasing energy demand in the world. New generation reactors with improved safety, sustainability, reliability, economy and security are being developed. Lead-cooled fast reactor (LFR) is one of them. READ MORE

  5. 5. Laser-Driven Particle Acceleration - Improving Performance Through Smart Target Design

    Author : Matthias Burza; Atomfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; wakefield; ultra-relativistic; ultra-intense; TNSA; Terawatt; sheath; proton; polarimetry; plasma mirror; plasma; Petawatt; particle; oscillation; Normarski; micromachining; LWFA; laser; interferometry; electron; contrast; acceleration; bubble; Fysicumarkivet A:2012:Burza;

    Abstract : Laser-driven particle acceleration makes use of sub-picosecond, pulsed, high-power laser systems, capable of producing intensities ~10^{19} W/cm^2 at the laser focus to form plasmas, and use ultra-relativistic and nonlinear dynamics to produce quasistatic acceleration fields. This allows electrons to be accelerated to ~100 MeV over sub-centimetre distances, while protons may be accelerated to the ~10 MeV regime. READ MORE
