  1. 1. Aerodynamic Investigation of Leading Edge Contouring and External Cooling on a Transonic Turbine Vane

    Author : Ranjan Saha; Torsten Fransson; Jens Fridh; Tony Arts; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; gas turbine; aerodynamics; secondary flow; external cooling; trailing edge cooling; film cooling; aerodynamic loss; high pressure turbine; nozzle guide vane; Aerospace Engineering; Flyg- och rymdteknik; Energiteknik; Energy Technology;

    Abstract : Efficiency improvement in turbomachines is an important aspect in reducing the use of fossil-based fuel and thereby reducing carbon dioxide emissions in order to achieve a sustainable future. Gas turbines are mainly fossil-based turbomachines powering aviation and land-based power plants. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cracking during Continuous Casting of Steels : Analysis tools and procedures to identify their causes on microalloyed steel slabs

    Author : Rosa Maria Pineda Huitron; Esa Vuorinen; Pavel Ernesto Ramí­rez López; Maria Begoña Santillana; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transverse corner cracks; Continuous Casting; Microalloyes steels; Secondary cooling; Cooling curves; Crack susceptibility; Engineering Materials; Materialteknik;

    Abstract : Transverse corner cracks are one of the most common but complex defects formed in microalloyed steels during continuous casting (CC). Such cracks are detrimental because it leads to a loss in productivity with a great impact on environment, energy and economics for several steel making companies all over the world. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thermophysical Properties of Aqueous Solutions Used as Secondary Working Fluids

    Author : Åke Melinder; Björn Palm; Antero Aittomäki; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Secondary working fluids; secondary refrigerants; indirect systems; aqueous solutions; ice slurry; thermophysical properties; freezing point; density; viscosity; specific heat; thermal conductivity; Mechanical and thermal engineering; Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : Secondary working fluids (secondary refrigerants, heat transfer fluids, antifreezes, brines) have long been used in various indirect re-frigeration and heat pump systems. Aqueous solutions (water solu-tions) have long been used as single phase (liquid only) secondary working fluids for cooling in supermarkets, ice rinks, heat recovery systems, heat pumps and other applications.

  4. 4. Computational Analysis of Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow with Relevance for IC-Engine Cooling

    Author : Sassan Etemad; Värmeöverföring; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Termisk teknik; termodynamik; turbulence models; Heat transfer; curved duct; secondary flow; IC-engine cooling; Gases; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; Teknik; Technological sciences; plasma; Gaser; fluiddynamik; plasmas; fluid dynamics;

    Abstract : Modern IC-engines produce more power per displaced volume and operate at higher combustion pressures and temperatures. In addition, engine structure materials such as aluminium and magnesium alloys, which are more sensitive to thermal loads, are more commonly used. READ MORE

  5. 5. Gothenburg District Cooling System - An evaluation of the system performance based on operational data

    Author : Maria Jangsten; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building chilled water systems; district cooling; high temperature district cooling; low delta-T;

    Abstract : The global energy demand for providing cooling in buildings is expected to increase the next decades, along with a rapid growth in the number of air conditioners and chillers. A more energy efficient, economical and environmentally viable solution to this increased cooling demand, is district cooling. READ MORE
