  1. 1. Inflation Mechanics of Hyperelastic Membranes

    Author : Amit Patil; Anders Eriksson; Arne Nordmark; Reijo Kouhia; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Membrane Mechanics; Inflation; Adhesive Contact; Instabilities; Bifurcation; Limit Point; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The applications of inflatable membrane structures are increasing rapidly in the various fields of engineering and science. The geometric, material, force and contact non-linearities complicate this subject further, which in turn increases the demand for computationally efficient methods and interpretations of counter-intuitive behaviors noted by the  scientific community.

  2. 2. Parametric stability analyses for fluid-loaded thin membranes

    Author : Yang Zhou; Anders Eriksson; Håkan Johansson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Membranes; Hydro-static load; Multi-parametric loading; Bifurcations; Generalized path-following; Fold lines; Mesh eects; Augmenting equations; Generalized eigenproblem; Solution surface.; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : Membrane structures are commonly used in many elds. The studies of thesestructures are of increasing interest. The two projects focus on the evaluations ofequilibrium states for uid-pressurized membranes under dierent loading conditions,and the corresponding instability behavior. READ MORE

  3. 3. Inflation and Instabilities of Hyperelastic Membranes

    Author : Amit Patil; Anders Eriksson; Arne Nordmark; Peter Hansbo; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Membranes; Constrained inflation; Energy release rate; Adhesive contact condition; Limit point; Bifurcation point; Wrinkling; Tension field theory; Pressure induced instability.; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The applications of membranes are increasing rapidly in various fields of engineering and science. The geometric, material, force and contact non-linearities complicate their analysis, which increases the demand for computationally efficient methods and interpretation of counter-intuitive behaviours.

  4. 4. Development of Methods to Investigate Pulmonary Arterial Smooth Muscle Cells under Hypoxia

    Author : Joel Wahl; Kerstin Ramser; Mikael Sjödahl; Fredrik Nikolajeff; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Experimentell mekanik; Experimental Mechanics;

    Abstract : Hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction (HPV) is a physiological response to localized alveolarhypoxia that is intrinsic to the pulmonary circulation. By hypoxia-induced contractionof pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells (PASMCs), the pulmonary capillary bloodflow is redirected to alveolar areas of high oxygen partial pressure, thus maintaining theventilation-perfusion ratio.

  5. 5. Electropermutation assisted by ion-exchange textile : removal of nitrate from drinking water

    Author : Carl-Ola Danielsson; Anders Dahlkild; Mårten Behm; Anna Velin; Gerald Pourcelly; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ion-exchange textile; Ion-exchange membrane; Electropermutation; Electroextraction; Electrodialysis; Electrodeionisation; Modeling; Conducting spacer; Nitrate removal; Water treatment; Water dissociation; Fluid mechanics; Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : Increased levels of nitrate in ground water have made many wells unsuitable as sources for drinking water. In this thesis an ion-exchang eassisted electromembrane process, suitable for nitrate removal, is investigated both theoretically and experimentally. READ MORE
