  1. 1. Statistical Compression Cache Designs

    Author : Angelos Arelakis; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cache; Floating-point compression; Data Compression; Huffman Coding; Statistical Compression; Value Locality; Memory; Hybrid Compression;

    Abstract : On-chip caches are essential as they bridge the growing speed-gap between off-chip memory and processors. To this end, processing cores are sacrificed for more cache space in the chip's real estate, possibly affecting the cache access time and power dissipation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Reducing Memory Traffic with Approximate Compression

    Author : Albin Eldstål-Ahrens; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Memory Compression; Memory Systems; Compression; Computer Architecture; Lossy Compression; Approximate Computing;

    Abstract : Memory bandwidth is a critical resource in modern systems and has an increasing demand. The large number of on-chip cores and specialized accelerators improves the potential processing throughput but also calls for higher data rates. In addition, new emerging data-intensive applications further increase memory traffic. READ MORE

  3. 3. Flow and Compression of Granulated Powders : The Accuracy of Discrete Element Simulations and Assessment of Tablet Microstructure

    Author : Ann-Sofie Persson; Göran Frenning; Göran Alderborn; Marie Wahlgren; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Discrete Element Method; Granule; Flow; Angle of Repose; Discharge Rate; Shear; Rolling friction; Compression; Elastic deformation; Microstructure; Degree of compression; Tensile strength; Galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics;

    Abstract : Simulations are powerful and important tools for gaining insight into powder processes. Ultimately, simulations have the potential to replace experiments. Thus, accurate models and insight into the essential factors for descriptions of powder behaviour are required. READ MORE

  4. 4. Confined Compression of Single Particles : Development of a Novel Triaxial Testing Instrument and Particle-Scale Modelling

    Author : Henrik Jonsson; Göran Frenning; Göran Alderborn; Abderrahim Michrafy; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Powder compaction; Compression; Single particle; Particle mechanics; Powder mechanics; Confined conditions; Triaxial; Apparatus design; Modelling; Galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics;

    Abstract : When predicting the performance of a powder compaction process, assessing the behaviour of the particles comprising the powder bed is of central relevance. Currently, however, no experimental methods are available for mimicking the multiaxial loading conditions imposed on the individual particles in a powder bed during compaction, and such analyses are therefore usually performed in silico.

  5. 5. The Compression/Absorption Heat Pump Cycle - System Simulations

    Author : Lena Åhlby; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : compression; refrigerant mixture; absorption; NH3 H2O; NH3 H2O-LiBr;

    Abstract : From the results presented in this thesis it is clear that the compression/absorption heat pump cycle offers several advantages over other types of heat pumps. In many cases it gives a higher or equally high COP compared with the single-fluid compression heat pump but also the smaller SCD (i.e. READ MORE
