  1. 1. Convection in Loose-fill Attic Insulation

    Author : Paula Wahlgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : loose-fill insulation; forced convection; attics; natural convection; heat transfer; thermal insulation;

    Abstract : The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of convection on the thermal performance of loose-fill attic insulation under realistic climate conditions. In order to achieve this, a large-scale attic test model has been constructed in a climate chamber. READ MORE

  2. 2. Control of oscillatory thermocapillary convection

    Author : Junichiro Shiomi; KTH; []
    Keywords : Fluid mechanics; control; thermocapillary convection;

    Abstract : The possibility to stabilize the oscillatory thermocapillaryconvection is demonstrated using a proportional feedbackcontrol. This topic has a strong industrial motivation inconnection with a container-less crystal growth method calledthe floating-zone technique. READ MORE

  3. 3. DNS and LES of Turbulent Natural Convection Boundary Layer

    Author : Darioush Gohari Barhaghi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; DNS; free convection; LES; natural convection boundary layer; vertical cylinder;

    Abstract : Turbulent natural convection boundary layers possess some special characteristicscompared to the other boundary layers.In order to study this kind of boundary layer, two powerful numerical methods,Direct Numerical Simulation or DNS and Large Eddy Simulation or LES,are used.

  4. 4. Global Magnetospheric Plasma Convection

    Author : Stefan Eriksson; KTH; []
    Keywords : Geophysics; satellite measurements; electric fields; magnetosphere; magnetic reconnection;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the global aspects of plasmaconvection in the magnetosphere as measured by the low-altitudepolar orbiting Astrid-2 and FAST satellites. The major focus ison the electric field measurements, but they are alsocomplemented by magnetic field, ion and electron particle data,which is fundamental for the understanding of theelectrodynamics of the high-latitude auroral ovals and polarcap, which are the regions analysed here.

  5. 5. Melt convection in welding and crystal growth

    Author : Minh Do-Quang; Gustav Amberg; Andreas Ludwig; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Engineering physics; thermocapillary convection; gas-tungsten arc welding; floating zone; parallel computing; finite element method; Teknisk fysik; Engineering physics; Teknisk fysik;

    Abstract : A parallel finite element code with adaptive meshing was developed and used to study three dimensional, time-dependent fluid flows caused by thermocapillary convection as well as temperature and dopant distribution in fusion welding and floating zone crystal growth. A comprehensive numerical model of the three dimensional time-dependent fluid flows in a weld pool had been developed. READ MORE
