  1. 1. Effects of Irradiation and Thermal Ageing on the Nanoscale Chemistry of Steel Welds

    Author : Kristina Lindgren; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; spinodal decomposition; thermal ageing; low alloy steel; reactor pressure vessel; irradiation damage; atom probe tomography; core barrel; clustering;

    Abstract : Structural materials of nuclear power plants degrade during operation due to thermal ageing and irradiation from the reactor core. Effects on the materials are an increase in hardness and tensile strength, and a decrease in ductility and fracture toughness, i. e. embrittlement. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wavelet and Spectral Analysis of Some Selected Problems in Reactor Diagnostics

    Author : Carl Sunde; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; core-barrel vibrations; two-phase flow; noise diagnostics; wavelet analysis; detector tube impacting;

    Abstract : Both spectral and wavelet analysis were successfully used in various diagnostic problems involving non-stationary core processes in nuclear power reactors. Three different problems were treated: two-phase flow identification, detector tube impacting and core-barrel vibrations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Noise diagnostics of Stationary and Non-Stationary Reactor Processes

    Author : Carl Sunde; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; core-barrel vibrations; break-frequency method; wavelet; decay ratio; detector tube impacting; two-phase flow; spectral analysis; noise diagnostics;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the application of noise diagnostics on different problems in the area of reactor physics involving both stationary and non-stationary core processes. Five different problems are treated, divided into three different parts. READ MORE

  4. 4. Development and Application of Reactor Noise Diagnostics

    Author : Joakim K.-H. Karlsson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; BWR stability; noise decomposition; reactor noise; control rod vibrations; core barrel vibration; density wave oscillations; noise diagnostics; PWR noise; localisation; channel instability;

    Abstract : A number of problems in reactor noise diagnostics have been investigated within the framework of the present thesis. The six papers presented cover three relatively different areas, namely the use of analytical calculations of the neutron noise in simple reactor models, some aspects of boiling water reactor (BWR) stability and diagnostics of core barrel motion in pressurized water reactors (PWRs).

  5. 5. The Structural Modularity and Inherent Dynamics of the DegP Protease together with its Intertwined Role in the Bacterial Periplasm

    Author : Darios Šulskis; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; serine protease; DegP; nuclear magnetic resonance; E. coli; protein quality control; chaperone; HtrA;

    Abstract : The protein quality control machinery is a delicate and integrated network of molecular tools working together to fold or remove unwanted proteins from the cell. A distinct set of “gatekeepers” are involved in this process including molecular chaperones, proteases, oxidoreductases, transferases, and many others in both eukaryotic and prokaryotic organisms.
