  1. 1. On Radiative Heat Transfer Modeling with Relevance for Combustor and Biomass Furnaces

    University dissertation from Lund University (Media-Tryck)

    Author : Mehdi Bahador; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; termodynamik; fluiddynamik; plasma; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; Termisk teknik; plasmas; Gaser; Thermal Radiation; Scattering; Heat load; Gases; fluid dynamics; Biomass Furnaces; framdrivningssystem; Motorer; Motors and propulsion systems;

    Abstract : Thermal radiation sometimes is the dominating heat transfer mode in combustion chambers and furnaces and therefore in the design of many relevant industrial facilities prediction of it is necessary. During previous years many research efforts in the radiative heat transfer field have originated and many methods and models from simple to complex have been developed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Heat exposure and health outcomes in Costa Rican sugarcane harvesters

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jennifer Crowe; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Agricultural worker; Central America; Chronic kidney disease; Climate change; Dehydration; Heat; Heat illness; Heat stress; Sugarcane; Urinalysis; Worker health; folkhälsa; Public health; Epidemiology; epidemiologi;

    Abstract : Background The remarkably efficient mechanisms of the human body to maintain its core temperature of 37°C can be inadequate when harsh climatic conditions and excessive muscle movement lead to heat stress, dehydration and potential heat illness, ranging from minor symptoms such as fatigue to a potentially fatal heat stroke. Agricultural workers in the tropics are at high risk, which is expected to increase with climate change. READ MORE

  3. 3. On Heat and Paper From Hot Pressing to Impulse Technology

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fiber- och polymerteknologi

    Author : Marco Francesco Carlo Lucisano; KTH.; [2002]
    Keywords : Paper; Impulse Drying; Heat Transfer; Phase Change; Heat-Pipe Effect; Delamination; Flashing;

    Abstract : Impulse technology is a process in which water is removedfrom a wet paper web by the combined action of mechanicalpressure and intense heat. This results in increased dewateringrates, increased smoothness on the roll side of the sheet, andincreased density. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exhaust Heat Utilisation and Losses in Internal Combustion Engines with Focus on the Gas Exchange System

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Habib Aghaali; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Turbocharger; heat transfer; heat loss; exhaust heat utilisation; waste heat recovery; turbocompound; divided exhaust period; internal combustion engine; gas exchange; pumping loss; variable valve timing; WHR; DEP; Turbo; värmeöverföring; värmeförluster; avgasvärme utnyttjande; förluster vid värmeåtervinning; turbocompound; delad avgasperiod; förbränningsmotor; gasväxling; pumpningsförlust; variabla ventiltider; WHR; DEP; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Exhaust gas energy recovery should be considered in improving fuel economy of internal combustion engines. A large portion of fuel energy is wasted through the exhaust of internal combustion engines. Turbocharger and turbocompound can, however, recover part of this wasted heat. READ MORE

  5. 5. Reduction of heat transfer and heat load in internal combustion engines

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Joop Somhorst; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; efficiency; TBC; thermal barrier coating; surface roughness; engine; heat transfer; emissions; alumina; zirconia;

    Abstract : Thermal insulation of the combustion chamber in an engine has great potential to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Research on thermal barrier coatings (TBC) has been performed since the early eighties to address this potential. READ MORE
