    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erland Strömstedt; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wave energy converter; direct drive; submerged transmission; piston rod; seal housing; sealing system; laser triangulation sensor; offshore measurements; relative displacement; vibrations; tilt angle; tilting; wear estimation.; Engineering Science with specialization in Science of Electricity; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot elektricitetslära;

    Abstract : Different wave power technologies are in development around the world in different stages of prototype testing. So far only a few devices have been deployed offshore at full scale for extended periods of time. Little data is published about how these different devices perform. READ MORE

  2. 2. End-Shield Bridges for High-Speed Railway Full scale dynamic testing and numerical simulations

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Hesham Elgazzar; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; high-speed railway; end-shield bridges; structural dynamics; soil structure interaction; full scale bridge testing; controlled forced excitation; hydraulic bridge exciter; frequency response function; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : The increasing need for High-Speed Railway (HSR) to reduce the travelling time requires increasing research within this field. Bridges are main components of any railway network, including HSR networks, and the optimization of their design for this purpose would contribute to a faster and more cost effective development of the HSR network.

  3. 3. Strengthening of concrete structures with CFRP shear strengthening and full scale applications

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Anders Carolin; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Structures can be in need of strengtheing due to many reasons, which are presented in this thesis. A literature review gives the existing methods for enhancing a structures load bearing capacity. In this thesis focus will be set at external bonding with carbon fibre reinforced polymers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Consumption and Running Time for Trains modelling of running resistance and driver behaviour based on full scale testing

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Piotr Lukaszewicz; KTH.; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy consumption; Running time; running resistance; driver behaviour; freight; train; energy coasting method; aerodynamic drag; driver model; degree of coasting; slippage; wind; Energy saving; braking ratio; powering ratio; full scale testing; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Vehicle engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : The accuracy in determined energy consumption and runningtime of trains, by means of computer simulation, is dependent upon the various models used. This thesis aims at developing validated models of running resistance, train and of a generaldriver, all based on full scale testing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heat Flow in Building Components, Experiment and Analysis

    University dissertation from Department of Building Science, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Petter Wallentén; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; radiation exchange; longwave; shortwave; transient; frequency analysis; finite difference; measurements; wall; window; heat transfer coefficient; convective; full scale; natural climate; in situ; counter flow insulation; heat transfer; dynamic insulation; temperature; building; solar radiation; window model; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Three building components exposed to natural climate were studied: a dynamic insulation in the ceiling of a house, an outer wall and one window in the same wall. The term dynamic insulation implies that part of the inlet or exhaust air passes through the insulation of a house. READ MORE
