  1. 11. Development of Vortex Filament Method for Aerodynamic Loads on Rotor Blades

    Author : Hamidreza Abedi; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; free wake; aerodynamic load; wind turbine; vortex lattice method; rotor blade; lifting surface; prescribed wake; lifting line;

    Abstract : Wind power is currently one of the most reliable new energy sources serving as an alternative tofossil fuel generated electricity and is known as a widely distributed clean and renewable sourceof energy. It is now the world’s fastest growing energy source and has also become one of themost rapidly expanding industries. READ MORE

  2. 12. Active Flow Control for Aircrafts and Heavy Vehicles

    Author : Mohammad El-Alti; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Trucks; Drag reduction; Bluff-body; Large-eddy Simulation; Wake; Tilt-rotor wing; optimization; Aircrafts; Heavy vehicles; Active and Passive Flow Control; Response surface methodology; Synthetic-jet Actuator;

    Abstract : Bluff-body flows are dominated by large dissipative vortex-shedding wakes with low mean pressure compared to the high pressure on their frontal area. This induced pressure difference is the major contribution to the total aerodynamic drag. READ MORE

  3. 13. Active Flow Control for Drag Reduction of Heavy Vehicles

    Author : Mohammad El-Alti; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Active and Passive Flow Control; Tilt-rotor wing; Large-eddySimulation; Heavy vehicles; optimization; Full-scale road test; Trucks; Bluff-body; Wake; Drag reduction; Aircrafts; Response surface methodology; Synthetic-jet Actuator;

    Abstract : This thesis considers the aerodynamics of trucks. The work focuses on the aerodynamic drag caused by the wake. Bluff-body flows are dominated by large dissipative vortex-shedding wakes with a low mean pressure compared to the high pressure on their frontal area. READ MORE

  4. 14. Resource characterization and variability studies for marine current power

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis
