  1. 1. Energy Consumption and Running Time for Trains modelling of running resistance and driver behaviour based on full scale testing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Piotr Lukaszewicz; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy consumption; Running time; running resistance; driver behaviour; freight; train; energy coasting method; aerodynamic drag; driver model; degree of coasting; slippage; wind; Energy saving; braking ratio; powering ratio; full scale testing; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Vehicle engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : The accuracy in determined energy consumption and runningtime of trains, by means of computer simulation, is dependent upon the various models used. This thesis aims at developing validated models of running resistance, train and of a generaldriver, all based on full scale testing. READ MORE

  2. 2. Truck Steering System and Driver Interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Kristoffer K D Tagesson; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; steering system; active safety; driver behaviour; active steering; torque feedback; heavy trucks;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a compilation of methods to consider when mapping steering functions and results as vehicle dimensions change. It is concluded that some final tuning inevitably will be required as major changes are performed. It is however possible to create qualified starting points using a set of simple rules as presented.

  3. 3. Theoretical magnetohydrodynamic and solidification studies of continuous strip casting

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Hans B. Löfgren; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : The continuous casting of steel strips has been under investigation and development for several decades. The aim of this development is to be able to cast steel strips in a thickness range from 1 to 10 mm. Today, there are basically two such methods: the single-belt caster and the twin-roll caster.

  4. 4. Vehicle Dynamic Opportunities in Electrified Vehicles for Active Safety Interventions

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Adithya Arikere; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; rear-end collisions; active safety; vehicle dynamics; obstacle avoidance with oncoming traffic; speed control; electrified drivetrain; torque vectoring; driver assistance systems;

    Abstract : Although the sales of electrified vehicles is growing, studies indicatethat the growth is inadequate to sufficiently reduce CO2 emissions andmitigate global warming. Some form of added incentive is needed to driveelectrified vehicle sales. READ MORE
