  1. 1. Conduction laser welding : modelling of melt pool with free surface deformation

    Author : Josefine Svenungsson; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Conduction laser welding; numerical modelling; Computational Fluid Dynamics; OpenFOAM; free surface deformation; melt pool; Production Technology; Produktionsteknik; Manufacturing and materials engineering; Produktions- och materialteknik;

    Abstract : Laser welding is commonly used in the automotive-, steel- and aerospace industry. It is a highly non-linear and coupled process where the weld geometry is strongly affected by the flow pattern in the melt pool. Experimental observations are challenging since the melt pool and melt flow below the surface are not yet accessible during welding. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigations of Waterjet/Hull Interaction Effects

    Author : Arash Eslamdoost; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pressure jump method; thrust deduction; numerical simulation; waterjet propulsion; gross thrust; trim angle; waterjet hull interaction; net thrust; potential flow; sinkage; non-linear free-surface;

    Abstract : A waterjet propulsor operates in a different way than a conventional propeller. This makes it hard to use the same concepts for studying the thrust and powering of these systems. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Hydrodynamics of Waterjet/Hull Interaction

    Author : Arash Eslamdoost; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; trim angle; vena-contracta; transom clearance; net thrust; waterjet hull interaction; waterjet propulsion; capture area; exit drag; non-linear free-surface; intake drag; gross thrust; sinkage; streamtube; RANS; thrust deduction; potential flow; VOF;

    Abstract : The objective of the present investigation is to explore the physics behind the waterjet/hull interaction, and in particular the negative thrust deduction often reported in the semi-planing speed range. Another objective is to propose a validated numerical technique for computing the hydrodynamics of waterjet-driven hulls. READ MORE

  4. 4. Computational Ice Sheet Dynamics : Error control and efficiency

    Author : Josefin Ahlkrona; Per Lötstedt; Jesse Johnson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ice sheet modelling; stokes equations; shallow ice approximation; finite element method; perturbation expansions; non-newtonian fluids; free surface flow; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Ice sheets, such as the Greenland Ice Sheet or Antarctic Ice Sheet, have a fundamental impact on landscape formation, the global climate system, and on sea level rise. The slow, creeping flow of ice can be represented by a non-linear version of the Stokes equations, which treat ice as a non-Newtonian, viscous fluid. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling of the wet-out process in composites manufacturing

    Author : Da Wu; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; process modeling; liquid composite molding; fiber preform deformation; free surface flow; porous media theory;

    Abstract : The fiber reinforced polymer composites (FRPCs) are carving out a niche amid the keen market competition to replace the other material counterparts, e.g., metals. Due to the low weight and corrosion resistance, the FRPCs are wildly utilized from aviation to automobile industries; both in the sectors of civilian and defense. READ MORE
