  1. 1. Convection in Loose-fill Attic Insulation

    Author : Paula Wahlgren; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; loose-fill insulation; forced convection; attics; natural convection; heat transfer; thermal insulation;

    Abstract : The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of convection on the thermal performance of loose-fill attic insulation under realistic climate conditions. In order to achieve this, a large-scale attic test model has been constructed in a climate chamber. READ MORE

  2. 2. On optimization of natural convection flows

    University dissertation from Stockholm, Sweden : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Clio Saglietti; Dan S. Henningson; Kurt Maute; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Natural convection cooling; topology optimization; flow optimization; heat sink; conjugate heat transfer; differentially heated cavity; optimal initial disturbances; adjoint optimization;

    Abstract : Two different techniques are presented for enhancing the thermal  performance of natural convection cooled heat sinks. The physics is  described by solving the conjugate heat transfer problem with a  spectral element method. The temperature distribution is computed in  two sub-domains, whose solution is then conjugated. READ MORE

  5. 5. Substorm Features in the High-Latitude Ionosphere and Magnetosphere Multi-Instrument Observations

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Borälv; Hermann Opgenoorth; Mark Lester; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Space and plasma physics; Substorm; Convection; magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling; Rymd- och plasmafysik; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Geocosmophysics and plasma physics Space physics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Geokosmofysik och plasmafysik Rymdfysik; Space and Plasma Physics; rymd- och plasmafysik;

    Abstract : The space around Earth, confined in the terrestrial magnetosphere, is to some extent shielded from the Sun's solar wind plasma and magnetic field. During certain conditions, however, strong interaction can occur between the solar wind and the magnetosphere, resulting in magnetospheric activity of several forms, among which substorms and storms are the most prominent.
