  1. 1. Marine Propeller Optimisation - Strategy and Algorithm Development

    Author : Florian Vesting; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cavitation; artificial neural network; RANS; Kriging; potential flow; genetic algorithm; constrained optimisation; PSO; marine propeller;

    Abstract : Recent trends in the shipping industry, e.g., expanded routing in ecologically sensitive areas and emission regulations, have sharpened the perception of efficient propeller designs. Currently, propeller efficiency, estimated fuel consumption and, more often, propeller-radiated noise are parameters that steer the business Zeitgeist. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolutionary optimisation of a morphological image processor for embedded systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology, Dep. of Applied Mechanics

    Author : Andreas Magnusson; Högskolan i Borås.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; embedded system; machine vision; morphological image processing; genetic algorithm; Energi och material; hardware-based genetic algorithm;

    Abstract : The work presented in this thesis concerns the design, development and implementation of two digital components to be used, primarily, in autonomously operating embedded systems, such as mobile robots. The first component is an image coprocessor, for high-speed morphological image processing, and the second is a hardware-based genetic algorithm coprocessor, which provides evolutionary computation functionality for embedded applications.

  3. 3. Inverse and optimization problems in electromagnetics -- a finite-element method perspective

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : JOHAN WINGES; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; microwave measurements; computational electromagnetics; finite element method; optimization; inductive power transfer; compressed sensing; wireless power; brick-tetrahedron hybrid; parameter estimation; inverse problems;

    Abstract : In this thesis, a selection of inverse and optimization problems are studied where the finite element method (FEM) serves as a comprehensive tool to solve electromagnetic field problems that lack an analytic solution. The inverse problems are typically formulated in terms of an optimization problem where the misfit between a measurement and the corresponding result of a computational model is minimized. READ MORE

  4. 4. Microbial Risks in Surface Water Sources

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Johan Åström; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Surface water; Bifidobacteria; Microbial source tracking; Cryptosporidium.; QMRA; Flow-weighted sampling; Pathogens; Bacteroidales; Stochastic modelling; qPCR;

    Abstract : Microbial risks need to be properly handled for the provision of healthy drinking water. The mitigation of pathogens in the water source lowers the risk for infection associated with nominal and suboptimal drinking water treatment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Hydrodynamic and Microbiological Modelling of Water Quality in Drinking Water Sources

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Ekaterina Sokolova; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ECO Lab; Bacteroidales; inactivation; microcosm experiment; fate and transport modelling; pathogens; microbial source tracking; MIKE 3; faecal indicators;

    Abstract : Faecal contamination of drinking water sources poses risks for waterborne disease outbreaks. To manage these risks the fate and transport of faecal contamination in a drinking water source need to be understood and quantitatively described. READ MORE
