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

    Author : Frida Vermina Plathner; Avdelningen för Brandteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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

  2. 2. Predicting the Long-Term Insulation Performance of District Heating Pipes

    Author : Camilla Persson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : heat conduction; polyurethane foam; insulation capacity; diffusion; thermal conductivity; cyclopentane; solubility coefficient; long-term performance;

    Abstract : The aim of the studies that comprise this thesis was to predict the heat loss over timefrom a range of district heating pipes insulated with closed-cells foam. The thermalconductivity of the foam changes over time when it is not diffusion-tight encapsulatedagainst the environment, as diffusion alters the cell gas composition until it reachesequilibrium with the surrounding air.

    Author : Martin Eriksson; Bahram Moshfegh; Shahnaz Amiri; Jan Akander; Sasan Sadrizadeh; Högskolan i Gävle; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; energy signature; multifamily building; district heating; energy renovation; simulation; heat loss coefficient; balance temperature; base load; energisignatur; flerbostadshus; fjärrvärme; energirenovering; simulering; värmeförlustkoefficient; balanstemperatur; baslast; Hållbar stadsutveckling; Sustainable Urban Development;

    Abstract : Several climate and energy goals have been set in the European Union, one of them being to increase energy efficiency. In Sweden, a large potential for increased energy efficiency lies in the residential and service sectors, which account for about 40% of total energy use. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modeling and Performance Analysis of Alternative Heat Exchangers for Heavy Vehicles

    Author : Wamei Lin; Värmeöverföring; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Countercurrent flow; Graphite foam; Heat exchanger; Thermal performance; Computational fluid dynamics;

    Abstract : Cross flow heat exchangers made from aluminum are common as radiators in vehicles. However, due to the increasing power requirement and the limited available space in vehicles, it is extremely difficult to increase the size of heat exchangers (HEXs) placed in the front of vehicles.

  5. 5. Computational Analysis of Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow with Relevance for IC-Engine Cooling

    Author : Sassan Etemad; Värmeöverföring; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Termisk teknik; termodynamik; turbulence models; Heat transfer; curved duct; secondary flow; IC-engine cooling; Gases; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; Teknik; Technological sciences; plasma; Gaser; fluiddynamik; plasmas; fluid dynamics;

    Abstract : Modern IC-engines produce more power per displaced volume and operate at higher combustion pressures and temperatures. In addition, engine structure materials such as aluminium and magnesium alloys, which are more sensitive to thermal loads, are more commonly used. READ MORE
