  1. 1. Crash-Landing in a Turbulent Transition Market : A Legitimating Activity?

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Sabine Gebert Persson; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : Business studies; Foreign market entry; Legitimacy; Transition economy; Service firms; Process; Företagsekonomi; Business Studies; företagsekonomi;

    Abstract : With the transition of Central Eastern European countries, a number of foreign companies saw opportunities to enter this virgin ground for business that was evolving. For many firms the entry into these countries became problematic due to the turbulence. READ MORE

  2. 2. Application of Parallel Computers to Enhance the Flow Modelling Capability in Aircraft Design

    University dissertation from Institutionen för konstruktions- och produktionsteknik

    Author : Mattias Sillén; Dan Loyd; Peter Eliasson; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flow modelling; parallel computer; parallel efficiency; turbulence modelling; aircraft design; CFD; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Fluid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Strömningsmekanik;

    Abstract : The development process for new aircraft configurations needs to be more efficient in terms of performance, cost and time to market. The potential to influence these factors is highest in early design phases. Thus, high confidence must be established in the product earlier than today. READ MORE

  3. 3. CFD Modeling of Turbulent Flows in Industrial Applications with Emphasis on Premixed Combustion in Gas Turbines

    University dissertation from Department of Heat and Power Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Ulf Engdar; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; framdrivningssystem; Motorer; turbulence and premixed combustion modeling ; CFD modeling ; level-set flamelet library approach ; emissions ; gas turbine ; compressor washing ; spray modeling ; Technological sciences; Teknik; Energy research; Energiforskning; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; Termisk teknik; Motors and propulsion systems; termodynamik;

    Abstract : Increasing restrictions on hazardous emissions combined with demands for good profitability from the operators in the energy market have contributed strongly to the development of innovations in which the emphasis is on low emissions and high efficiency. For gas turbine-based power plants, emission of NOx in particular is governed by stringent legislation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Simulations and experiments of turbulent diffuser flow with hydropower applications

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : T. Fredrik Engström; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Most hydropower plants in Sweden were built more than 50 years ago. The design tools were model tests and one-dimensional analytical methods. Since then the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics has evolved into an important engineering tool. READ MORE

  5. 5. Foreign Investment Decision-Making in Transition Economies

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholms universitet

    Author : Olga Golubeva; Stockholms universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Politics; Economy and the Organization of Society; Politik; ekonomi och samhällets organisering; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies; FDI; transition economy; initial motivation or reasons for FDI; capital budgeting methods and investment decision criteria; investigation of investment climate and information collection methods; risk assessment and risk reduction measures; decision-making models; case studies; survey method; Business Administration; företagsekonomi; investment decision criteria; Eriksson; Vattenfall; servey method;

    Abstract : The purpose of this project is to describe and explain the foreign investment decision process in the uncertain and turbulent environment of transition economy. By getting an in-depth understanding of how decision-making works in the environment of transition economy, the study intends to contribute to the development of business administration theory in the area of foreign investment decision-making, particularly its application in the turbulent and uncertain world.
