  1. 1. Energy Consumption and Running Time for Trains : modelling of running resistance and driver behaviour based on full scale testing

    Author : Piotr Lukaszewicz; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy consumption; Running time; running resistance; driver behaviour; freight; train; energy coasting method; aerodynamic drag; driver model; degree of coasting; slippage; wind; Energy saving; braking ratio; powering ratio; full scale testing; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : The accuracy in determined energy consumption and runningtime of trains, by means of computer simulation, is dependent upon the various models used. This thesis aims at developing validated models of running resistance, train and of a generaldriver, all based on full scale testing. READ MORE

  2. 2. Truck tyre rolling resistance : Experimental testing and constitutive modelling of tyres

    Author : Jukka Hyttinen; Lars Drugge; Jenny Jerrelind; James Busfield; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Truck tyre; PRF; filler reinforced rubber; ambient temperature; rubber testing; parametrisation; Finite-element simulation; Lastbildäck; PRF; gummi; förstärkande fyllmedel; effekt av omgivningstemperatur; gummiprovning; parametrisering; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Global warming sets a high demand to reduce the CO2 emissions of vehicles. In the European Union heavy-duty road transports account for 6 % of the total greenhouse gases and one of the main factors affecting these emissions is related to the rolling resistance of tyres. READ MORE

  3. 3. The relationship between rolling resistance and tyre operating conditions, with a focus on tyre temperature

    Author : Lisa Ydrefors; Annika Stensson Trigell; Jenny Jerrelind; Jurek Ejsmon; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Rolling resistance; tyre temperature; brush model; parametrisation; rolling resistance measurement; drum measurements; operating conditions; tyre; flat track measurements; Rullmotstånd; rullmotståndsmätning; däcktemperatur; driftsförhållanden; trummätning; borstmodellen; parametrisering; däck; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from today’s increasing number of cars and trucks, are crucial in counteracting global warming. These efforts include the intent to reduce the effects of the resistive forces acting on the vehicle. Rolling resistance is one of these forces. READ MORE

  4. 4. Efficient hull design for ice conditions in inland waterways

    Author : Meng Zhang; Karl Garme; Magnus Burman; Pentti Kujala; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Inland waterway ship; ice conditions; ice properties; ice-hull interaction; ice resistance; impact load; numerical method; operation time window; lightweight design; composites and sandwich structure; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : With increasing interest in utilizing the inland waterways (IWW) in European countries, the design of IWW vessels gains attention both from a transport efficiency and an emission control point of view. Usually, IWW ships are designed without ice operation concerns and are structurally weaker than ships designed according to ice-class notifications from the classification societies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Ride comfort and motion sickness in tilting trains

    Author : Johan Förstberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tilting train; Ride comfort; Motion sickness; Simulator; Experiments;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a systematic study of human responses to different motions and strategies of car body tilt control regarding ride comfort, working/reading ability and motion sickness on high-speed tilting trains. Experiments with test subjects were performed in a tilting train on curved track as well as in a moving vehicle simulator. READ MORE
