  1. 1. Non-Spherical Particle Interaction in Duct and Jet Flow

    Author : Ammar Hazim; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solid-gas flow; turbulence modulation; duct flow; coaxial jets flow; swirl jet flow; active flow control; synthetics jet; biomass powder; non-spherical particles; PIV measurement; Engineering mechanics - Fluid mechanics; Teknisk mekanik - Strömningsmekanik; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Wood waste is the most popular biomass recourse for many nations. Burned wood can, direct or indirect, release one of the greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide. The process can still be seen as a renewable source of energy since replanting of the trees and crops are consuming nearly the same amount of carbon dioxide through photosynthesis. READ MORE

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

    Author : Mohammad El-Alti; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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. 3. Experimental Study on Truck Related Power Losses: The Churning Losses in a Transmission Model and Active Flow Control at an A-pillar of Generic Truck Cabin Model

    Author : Erwin Adi Hartono; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hot wire anemometry; Machine learning; Computational Fluid Dynamics; A-Pillar; Transmission; Flow separation; Churning losses; CFD; Gearbox; Torque measurement; Particle Image Velocimetry; Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics.; Active Flow Control; SPH; Curve fit; Synthetic Jets; Load independent power losses; Aeration; Flow visu- alization;

    Abstract : The fight with global warming constantly forces vehicle manufacturers to innovate, in order to be able to reduce the CO2 emissions of their product. This means that marginal efficiency gains in every component are considered beneficial for total reduction of CO2 emissions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Active Flow Control for Drag Reduction of Heavy Vehicles

    Author : Mohammad El-Alti; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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

  5. 5. Bio-inspired retinal optic flow perception in robotic navigation

    Author : Björnborg Nguyen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; robotic navigation; active fixation; visual perception; bionics; Retinal optic flow fields; gazing; optic flow; retinal flow path;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the bio-inspired visual perception of motion with emphasis on locomotion targeting robotic systems. By continuously registering moving visual features in the human retina, a sensation of a visual flow cue is created. An interpretation of visual flow cues forms a low-level motion perception more known as retinal optic flow. READ MORE
