  1. 1. Force Budget Analysis of Glacier Flow : Ice Dynamical Studies on Storglaciären, Sweden, and Ice Flow Investigations of Outlet Glaciers in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica

    Author : Jim Hedfors; Veijo Pohjola; Else Kolstrup; Niels Reeh; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical geography and sedimentology; force budget; ice flux; ice dynamics; mass balance; strain heating; climate change; Storglaciären; Dronning Maud Land; Antarctica; Naturgeografi och sedimentologi; Physical geography; Naturgeografi;

    Abstract : This thesis contributes to the understanding of glacier response to climate change by ice dynamical studies on Storglaciären, Sweden, and Bonnevie-Svendsenbreen, Kibergbreen and Plogbreen in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. Ice surface velocities, ice geometry and temperature information is fed through a force budget model to calculate ice mass outflux of these glacial systems via three-dimensional stress distributions for a flux-gate.

  2. 2. Numerical Modelling of Self-Compacting Concrete Flow : Discrete and Continuous Approach

    Author : Annika Gram; Johan Silfwerbrand; Ali Farhang; Mette R. Geiker; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SCC; rheology; Simulation of Flow; Simulering; Flöde; Självkompakterande Betong; Reologi; Construction materials; Konstruktionsmaterial;

    Abstract : With the advent of Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) that flows freely, under the soleinfluence of gravity, the wish for hassle-free and predictable castings even in complexcases, spurged the simulation of concrete flow as a means to model and predictconcrete workability. To achieve complete and reliable form filling with smoothsurfaces of the concrete, the reinforced formwork geometry must be compatible withthe rheology of the fresh SCC. READ MORE

  3. 3. Water density impact on water flow and mass transport in rock fractures

    Author : Helen Winberg-Wang; Longcheng Liu; Ivars Neretnieks; Andrew Frampton; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Tracer experiments; solute transport in fractured rock; advection-diffusion experiments; repositories; equivalent flowrate.; Spårämnesexperiment; ämnestransport i bergssprickor; advektion och diffusionsexperiment; slutförvar; ekvivalent flöde.;

    Abstract : One way of taking care of spent nuclear fuel is to place it in a geological repository. In Sweden, a three-barrier system is planned. The system is based on encapsulating the fuel in copper canisters. These are surrounded by bentonite clay and buried under 500 m of bedrock. READ MORE

  4. 4. Large Eddy Simulations of Complex Flows in IC-Engine's Exhaust Manifold and Turbine

    Author : Johan Fjällman; Laszlo Fuchs; Mihai Mihaescu; Ricardo Martinez-Botas; KTH; []

    Abstract : The thesis deals with the flow in pipe bends and radial turbines geometries that are commonly found in an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). The development phase of internal combustion engines relies more and more on simulations as an important complement to experiments. READ MORE

  5. 5. Drag reduction using plasma actuators

    Author : Romain Futrzynski; Gunilla Efraimsson; P. Henrik Alfredsson; Charles Mockett; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flow control; drag reduction; plasma actuator; DMD; LES; optimization; pulsating flow; strömningskontroll; motståndsminskning; plasma ställdon; DMD; LES; optimering; pulserande flöde; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : This thesis is motivated by the application of active flow control on the cabin of trucks, thereby providing a new means of drag reduction. Particularly, the work presented strives to identify how plasma actuators can be used to reduce the drag caused by the detachment of the flow around the A-pillars. READ MORE
