  1. 1. Material Flows Incurred by Activities at Project Sites

    Author : Nina Modig; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; temporary organization; project site; project; supply network; logistics; material flows;

    Abstract : The execution of numerous projects is dependent on the movement of large quantities of heterogeneous material to and from project sites. This has to be done in a timely manner to successfully produce desired outputs, e.g. buildings, concerts, peacekeeping operations and sport events. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Study on Particle Motion and Deposition Rate Application in Steel Flows

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Peiyuan Ni; Pär Jönsson; Lage Jonsson; Mikael Ersson; Stein Tore Johansson; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; steel flow; ladle teeming; continuous casting; non-metallic inclusion behavior; particle deposition; nozzle clogging; numerical simulation.;

    Abstract : Non-metallic inclusions in molten steel have received worldwide attention due to their serious influence on both the steel product quality and the steel production process. These inclusions may come from the de-oxidation process, the re-oxidation by air and/or slag due to an entrainment during steel transfer, and so on. READ MORE
