  1. 1. Interpretation of gamma-ray burst X-ray and optical afterglow emission : From the central engine to the circumburst interaction

    Author : Liang Li; Felix Ryde; Fawad Hassan; Kim Page; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; gamma-ray bursts; central engine; afterglow; teoretisk fysik; Theoretical Physics;

    Abstract : Gamma-ray bursts are the largest electromagnetic explosions known to happen in the Universe and are associated with the collapse of stellar progenitors into blackholes. After an energetic prompt emission phase, lasting typically less than a minute and emitted in the gamma-rays, a long-lived afterglow phase starts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Estimation of the In-Cylinder Air/Fuel Ratio of an Internal Combustion Engine by the Use of Pressure Sensors

    Author : Per Tunestål; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vakuumteknik; hydraulik; Maskinteknik; nonlinear; cylinder pressure; engine; least-squares; Mechanical engineering; estimation; hydraulics; vibration and acoustic engineering; vacuum technology; vibrationer; akustik; Motors and propulsion systems; Motorer; framdrivningssystem;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates the use of cylinder pressure measurements for estimation of the in-cylinder air/fuel ratio in a spark ignited internal combustion engine. An estimation model which uses the net heat release profile for estimating the cylinder air/fuel ratio of a spark ignition engine is developed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Particulate Emissions Associated with Diesel Engine Oil Consumption

    Author : Petter Tornehed; Ulf Olofsson; Gordon E. Andrews; KTH; []
    Keywords : Lubrication oil; Particulate emission; Particulate matter PM ; Oil consumption; Diesel engine; Mechanical engineering; Maskinteknik;

    Abstract : Particulate emissions from diesel engines have been a key issue for diesel engine developers in recent decades. Their work has succeeded in reducing the exhaust particles from the combustion of fuel, which has led to increasing interest in the contribution of particulates from lubrication oil. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling for Fuel Optimal Control of a Variable Compression Engine

    Author : Ylva Nilsson; Lars Eriksson; Lars Nielsen; Richard K. Stobart; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; combustion engine; modelling; Vehicle engineering; Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Variable compression engines are a mean to meet the demand on lower fuel consumption. A high compression ratio results in high engine efficiency, but also increases the knock tendency. On conventional engines with fixed compression ratio, knock is avoided by retarding the ignition angle. READ MORE

  5. 5. Characterization of the Homogeneous Charge Compression Ignition Combustion Process

    Author : Anders Hultqvist; Förbränningsmotorer; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; akustik; Motors and propulsion systems; Motorer; framdrivningssystem; Termisk teknik; termodynamik; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; vakuumteknik; hydraulik; Maskinteknik; vibration and acoustic engineering; hydraulics; vacuum technology; ATAC; Mechanical engineering; MK; CAI; TS; MULDIC; PREDIC; HCCI; fuel tracer; combustion; injection; direct; port; engine; LDV; LIF; PLIF; vibrationer;

    Abstract : The main objective of this project was to characterize the HCCI combustion process. Central parts in the project were the progress of the HCCI combustion process, the influence of charge homogeneity on the combustion process and sources of UHC and CO emissions in HCCI combustion.
