  1. 1. Realistic simulations of delta wing aerodynamics using novel CFD methods

    Author : Stefan Görtz; Arthur Rizzi; Miguel Visbal; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; CFD; aerodynamics; flow physics; steady; unsteady; delta wing; vortical flow; Rymd- och plasmafysik; Space physics; Rymdfysik;

    Abstract : The overall goal of the research presented in this thesis is to extend the physical understanding of the unsteady external aerodynamics associated with highly maneuverable delta-wing aircraft by using and developing novel, more efficient computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools. More specific, the main purpose is to simulate and better understand the basic fluid phenomena, such as vortex breakdown, that limit the performance of delta-wing aircraft. READ MORE

  2. 2. Properties of small Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 intrinsic Josephson junctions: confinement, flux-flow and resonant phenomena

    Author : Sven-Olof Katterwe; Vladimir M. Krasnov; Alexey Ustinov; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; high-temperature superconductivity; intrinsic Josephson junctions; tunneling; fluxons; flux-flow oscillator; THz-emission; cavity resonances; polaritons; micro nano-fabrication; Physics; fysik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, intrinsic Josephson junctions, naturally formed in the strongly anisotropic high-temperature superconductor Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8 (Bi-2212), are studied experimentally. For this purpose, small mesa structures are fabricated on the surface of single crystals using micro- and nano-fabrication tools, focused ion beam is used to reduce the area of the mesa-structures down to ≈ 1 × 1 μm2.

  4. 4. Measurements of Film Flow Rate in Heated Tubes with Various Axial Power Distributions

    Author : Carl Adamsson; Henryk Anglart; Bengt Sundén; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; film flow; film thickness; dryout; power distribution; annular flow; Atomic physics; Atomfysik;

    Abstract : Measurements of film mass flow rate for annular, diabatic steam-water flow in tubes are presented. The measurements were carried out with four axial power distributions and at several axial positions at conditions typical for boiling water reactors, i.e. 7 MPa pressure and total mass flux in a range from 750 to 1750 kg/m2s.

  5. 5. Resonant Laser Techniques for Combustion and Flow Diagnostics

    Author : Rolf Fritzon; Förbränningsfysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; species; laser diagnostic techniques; temperature imaging; polarization spectroscopy; stimulated emission; DFWM; Fysik; Physics; turbulent mixing; LIF; Fysicumarkivet A:1998:Fritzon;

    Abstract : This thesis presents results from two areas of research. Firstly, the resonant coherent laser techniques polarization spectroscopy (PS), degenerate four-wave mixing (DFWM) and stimulated emission (SE) have been developed in the general field of combustion diagnostics. READ MORE
