  1. 1. Multiscale granular mechanics: A neutron diffraction based experimental approach

    University dissertation from Division of solid mechanics, Lund University

    Author : Stefanos Athanasopoulos; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Granular media; Neutron diffraction; Plane-strain apparatus; Stress distribution; Localised stress-strain;

    Abstract : Granular media (i.e., assemblies of grains, containing voids), such as sand, are highly complex materials, possessing inherently heterogeneous structure and properties that are manifested by the mobility and interaction of their constituent particles. Despite having been widely studied for centuries (i. READ MORE

  2. 2. On the Analysis of Energy Efficient Aircraft Engines

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Oskar Thulin; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Performance modelling; Aero engine; Turbofan; Aircraft engine; Installed propulsion; Ultra high bypass ratio; Exergy analysis; Engine weight estimate; Variable area fan nozzle; Multiple pivoting flaps; Translating cowls;

    Abstract : Aero engine performance analysis is highly multidimensional using various measures of component performance such as turbomachinery and mechanical efficiencies, and pressure loss coefficients. Using conventional performance analysis, relying on only the laws of thermodynamics, it is possible to understand how the performance parameters affect the component performance, but it is difficult to directly compare the magnitude of various loss sources.

  3. 3. Flow over rough surfaces, and conjugate heat transfer, in engineering applications

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Bercelay Niebles Atencio; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Skin-Friction Drag; Naphthalene Sublimation Tecnhique; correlation; RANS; Rotating Disk; stator channel; CFD; convective heat transfer; Antifouling paint; electric generator; Impinging Jet; Ship Hull; Roughness Function;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on two important topics in the field of fluid mechanics and heat transfer that were treated separately. On the one hand, the flow over rough surfaces, which is not yet completely understood, despite of the fact that it has an important implication in many engineering applications, especially in the naval industry for ships and boats because the friction drag caused by fouling, antifouling coatings and roughness in general impacts the fuel consumption and toxic emissions to the atmosphere.

  4. 4. Thermal impact on rolling contact fatigue of railway wheels

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Sara Caprioli; [2014]

    Abstract : Rolling contact fatigue (RCF) is a very common and costly damage mechanism for rails and wheels. This thesis investigates the influence of combined thermal and mechanical loading on RCF of railway wheels on the basis of numerical predictions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies on Diesel sprays under non-reacting and reacting conditions

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Chengjun Du; [2017]
