  1. 1. Large Eddy Simulation of Impinging Jets

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Thomas Hällqvist; KTH.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Impinging jet; large eddy simulation; heat transfer; vortex formation; circular jet; forcing; inflow conditions; implicit modeling.; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Fluid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of impinging air jets. The impinging jet configuration features heated circular jets impinging onto a flat plate. The problem addressed here is of generic nature, with applications in many engineering devices, such as cooling of components in gas turbines, in cars and electronic devices. READ MORE

  2. 2. Hydrogeological Methods in Geotechnical Engineering: Applied to settlements caused by underground construction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Jenny Persson; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; excavation; tunnel; hydrogeology; consolidation; pumping test; Groundwater; inflow rate; settlement; transmissivity; pore pressure; clay;

    Abstract : Improvement in the infrastructure in urban areas generally involves underground construction with tunneling and deep excavations. One important consideration when constructing in cities founded on soft soil is settlement resulting from groundwater drawdown. The potential cost of excessive settlement in these projects is immense. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling Techniques for Large-Eddy Simulation of Wall-Bounded Turbulent Flows

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Timofey Mukha; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Wall modelling; Inflow generation; Large-eddy simulation; OpenFOAM; Computational fluid dynamics; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Large-eddy simulation (LES) is a highly accurate turbulence modelling approach in which a wide range of spatial and temporal scales of the flow are resolved. However, LES becomes prohibitively computationally expensive when applied to wall-bounded flows at high Reynolds numbers, which are typical of many industrial applications. READ MORE

  4. 4. Baltic shore-lands facing climate change

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Alma Strandmark; Hambäck; Sara Cousins; Martin Entling; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Arthropod diversity; Baltic shores; Beetles; Climate change; Energy flows; Marine inflow; Sea level rise; Shore ecosystems; Species distribution; Spiders; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : This thesis provides new insight concerning drivers behind differences in arthropod diversity and abundance in Baltic shore ecosystems and how the arthropod communities might be affected when the conditions in the Baltic Sea are altered due to climate change.  The focus has been on climate related changes that are unique for coastal ecosystems, especially sea level rise and changes in the inflow of marine nutrients.

  5. 5. Tunnel Grouting: Engineering Methods for Characterization of Fracture Systems in Hard Rock and Implications for Tunnel Inflow

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Ecology, Environment and Plant Sciences, Stockholm University

    Author : Lisa Hernqvist; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fracture system; anisotropy; flow dimension; hydraulic tests; hydraulic aperture; transmissivity; grouting; fractures; rock mass;

    Abstract : In tunnel construction in hard rock, a common method to reduce water inflow is to perform pre-grouting. The grouting design should be adapted to the current rock mass conditions as well as the stated inflow requirement for the tunnel project. READ MORE
