  1. 1. Upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor : modelling

    Author : Raul Rodriguez; Luis Moreno; Olle Wahlberg; Gunno Renman; KTH; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; wastewater; anaerobic treatment; modelling; UASB reactor.; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : Anaerobic treatment is widely used around the world as a biological stage in both domestic and industrial wastewater-treatment plants. The two principal advantages of anaerobic over aerobic treatment are the production of biogas, which can be used as fuel, and the lower rate of biomass production, which results in lower maintenance costs for the plant.

  2. 2. Indoor emissions and fate of flame retardants : A modelling approach

    Author : Ioannis Liagkouridis; Ian Cousins; Anna Palm Cousins; Thomas McKone; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; flame retardants; BFRs; OPFRs; indoor environment; emissions; fate; modelling; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : A significant number of consumer goods and building materials act as emission sources of flame retardants (FRs) in the indoor environment. As a result, FRs have become ubiquitous indoors raising concerns about human exposure and possible health implications. READ MORE

  3. 3. Study of precipitation in martensitic Fe-C-Cr alloys during tempering : Experiments and modelling

    Author : Ziyong Hou; Joakim Odqvist; Andersson Jörgen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fe-C-Cr alloy; Microstructure; Precipitates; Tempering of martensite; Electron microscopy; Modelling.; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Understanding the precipitation reaction is very important since precipitation hardening is one of the most effective strengthening mechanisms in metallic alloys. In martensitic steels, a tempering heat treatment is often performed. READ MORE

  4. 4. Delamination in APS applied thermal barrier coatings : life modelling

    Author : Magnus Jinnestrand; Esteban Busso; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Thermal barrier coatings, TBCs, are used in gas turbines as a thermal shield resulting in lower temperature in coated components. The decrease of temperature allows higher gas temperatures in the turbine, which increase the efficiency. READ MORE

  5. 5. Environmental Modelling : Learning from Uncertainty

    Author : John M. Juston; Per-Erik Jansson; Jens Christian Refsgaard; John Juston; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Models; data; error; uncertainty; hydrology; soil carbon; wetlands; phosphorus;

    Abstract : Environmental models are important tools; however uncertainty is pervasive in the modeling process.   Current research has shown that under­standing and representing these uncertainties is critical when decisions are expected to be made from the modeling results. READ MORE
