  1. 1. Modeling defect structure evolution in spent nuclear fuel container materials

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Arash Hosseinzadeh Delandar; KTH.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cast iron insert; First principles calculations; Point defects; Effective interaction energy; Late blooming phase; Dislocation dynamics; High strain rate deformation; Single-crystal copper; Copper canister; Creep; Glide; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Materials intended for disposal of spent nuclear fuel require a particular combination of physical and chemical properties. The driving forces and mechanisms underlying the material’s behavior must be scientifically understood in order to enable modeling at the relevant time- and length-scales. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental test setups and simulations in skiing mechanics

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Mikael Swarén; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; sports equipment; test methods; sports mechanics; alpine skiing; cross-country skiing; poles; helmets; glide; performance;

    Abstract : Product testing and development are essential parts in sports and for the athletes in their quest to reach the podium. Manufacturers of sports equipment often use basic test methods which do not test the equipment in a sports specific way. READ MORE

  3. 3. Investigation of the most essential factors influencing ski glide

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Leonid Kuzmin; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wax; Computer Aided Design; Datorstödd maskinkonstruktion;

    Abstract : There are many different parameters of a ski running surface (material, roughness, hydrophobicity, etc.). All the parameters have an influence on ski glide, some more and some less. Furthermore, some parameters with only minor relevance are commonly declared as critical, while truly critical parameters, as far as we know, never been investigated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Interfacial kinetic ski friction

    University dissertation from Östersund : Mittuniversitetet

    Author : Leonid Kuzmin; Mittuniversitetet.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ski glide; ski base; ski wax; hydrophobicity; UHMWPE; PTFE; topography; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : It is no doubt, that the ski glide over the snow is a very complicated object ofresearch. However, ski glide is just a one area of many other areas of humanknowledge. As a rule, the scientists and practitioners, who work in these areas,operate with some publicly expressed more or less solid hypotheses. READ MORE

  5. 5. Look-ahead control for fuel-efficient and safe heavy-duty vehicle platooning

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Valerio Turri; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; platoon; platooning; optimization; optimal control; model predictive control; automatic control; fuel efficiency; intelligent transport systems; automated driving; cooperative; dynamic programming; trucks; heavy-duty vehicles; safe platooning; fuel-efficient platooning; distributed model predictive control; MPC; vehicle-following; pulse and glide; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : The operation of heavy-duty vehicles at small inter-vehicular distances, known as platoons, lowers the aerodynamic drag and, therefore, reduces fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Tests conducted on flat roads have shown the potential of platooning to reduce the fuel consumption of about 10%. READ MORE
