  1. 1. Dynamic Characteristics of Floating Breakwaters

    Author : Aurora Xiaomeng Lei; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : floating breakwaters; couplings joints ; dynamic cables; dynamic response; line tension; wave attenuation; wave reflection;

    Abstract : The dynamic behaviour of interconnected floating breakwaters has been studied theoretically and experimentally. For this type of shore-protection system, problems that must be dealt with include wave loads on the breakwaters caused by the interaction between the bodies and the waves, motions of the moored breakwaters caused by the waves, changed wave fields in front of and behind the breakwaters, and forces on the mooring cables and in interconnections between breakwater units.

  2. 2. Floating-Point Analog-to-Digital Converter

    Author : Johan Piper; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electronics and Electrical technology; matching; binary weighting; dynamic range; resolution; distortion; pipeline; A D-converter; floating-point; Elektronik och elektroteknik;

    Abstract : To deal with the wide dynamic rage necessary for a radio receiver or corresponding applications, but to avoid impractically high resolution at high data rates, the approach of using a floating-point analog-to-digital converter (FP-ADC) has been investigated. This approach de-links the dynamic range with the resolution, and a very wide dynamic range can be achieved by an ADC with a moderate resolution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Floating treatment wetlands for stormwater management : Plant species selection and influence of external factors for heavy metal and chloride removal in a cold climate

    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Floating treatment wetlands; Phytodesalination; Rhizofiltration; Phytoremediation; Stormwater; Heavy metals; Chloride; Plant traits; Carex riparia; Carex pseudocyperus; Phalaris arundinacea; Flytande våtmarker; dagvatten; tungmetaller; klorid; fytoremediering; slokstarr; rörflen; jättestarr; växtfysiologi; Plant Physiology;

    Abstract : Stormwater, which consists of rainwater and snowmelt, often contains pollutants from vehicle traffic, building materials, and industries. These pollutants include chloride and heavy metals, which can cause several environmental issues, such as being toxic to biota at elevated concentrations. READ MORE

  5. 5. Dynamics and Extreme Value Problems for Moored Floating Platforms

    Author : Yungang Liu; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : quasi-static; frequency-domain; extreme value; convolution; floating platform; low-frequency; time-domain; mooring cable; wave-frequency;

    Abstract : This research deals with the dynamic response analyses and extreme value problems of moored floating platforms. It can be divided into three major subjects: first, the analysis of single cables and cable induced mooring damping; second, the dynamic analysis of the moored platforms, with special emphasis on the damping mechanisms and generation of the low-frequency excitation force time series; and third, the extreme wave-frequency responses and the combination of the low-frequency and wave-frequency extreme responses.
