    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lithium chloride; impregnation; diffusion; Norway spruce; local concentration profiles; experimental methodology; micro-cracks; wood; Donnan effect;

    Abstract : Wood sourced from well managed plantations or forests, is a renewable material with many advantages over non-renewable (fossil) material, and also wood lignocelluloses are the only type of biomass that is a seasonal-independent product. In addition to direct utilization as a building material, major uses of wood are currently for making pulp and paper products, and fuel. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental and Numerical Investigations of Flames Stabilized by Swirl Flow and Bluff-body:Flame Structures and Flame Instabilities

    Author : Yiheng Tong; [2017-10-16]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Flame structures; Flame instabilities; Blowout limits; Flashback; Swirl Flow; Bluff-body; Chemiluminescence; PIV;

    Abstract : Combustion and its control are essential to our existence on this planet since we knew it. Nowadays, the largest share of the world’s electricity and most of our transportation systems are powered by combustion. In addition, industrial processes also rely heavily upon combustion.

  4. 4. Limiting conditions for a sustained flame over condensed fuels : Analysis by experiments and stagnant layer theory

    University dissertation from Division of Fire Safety Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Frida Vermina Plathner; [2020]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Critical mass flux; diffusion flame; extinction; sustained ignition; chemical heat of combustion; Convective heat transfer coefficient; external heat flux;

    Abstract : Ignition and extinction characteristics of a material determine whether a fire will be initiated and grow. In fire safety engineering, where modellers deal with a multitude of materials, simplified thresholds are commonly used to determine when ignition and extinction occur. READ MORE

  5. 5. Laser Sheet Imaging and Image Analysis for Combustion Research

    University dissertation from Division of Fire Safety Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Rafeef Abu-Gharbieh; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; non-linear diffusion filtering; optically dense sprays; curve evolution propagation; image sequence analysis; laser induced fluorescence; geodesic paths; level sets; LIF; optical density; spray characterization; flame propagation; laser; particle image velocimetry; spectroscopy; combustion engines; spray diagnostics; Mie scattering; flame fronts; laser attenuation; tracking; combustion diagnostics; curve matching; combustion; laser sheet imaging; PIV; time resolved imaging; segmentation;

    Abstract : This Thesis presents techniques that aim at exploiting the potential of image analysis and processing in order to solve problems of data reduction, interpolation, quantification, and interpretation within the field of experimental laser imaging of combustion processes. Combustion is the most important source of energy for power generation, heating, and transportation in the world today and its strong dominance is projected to continue in the foreseeable future.
