    Author : Cong Wang; Sture Holmberg; Sasan Sadrizadeh; Anna Bogdan; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; operating room ventilation; bacteria-carrying particles; laminar airflow; mixing ventilation; temperature-controlled airflow; computation fluid dynamics; Lagrangian particle tracking; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap; Strömnings- och klimatteori; Fluid and Climate Theory;

    Abstract : Surgical site infections (SSIs) remain one of the most challenging postoperative complicationsof healthcare and threaten the lives of millions of patients each year. Current evidence hasshown a positive relationship between the airborne concentration of bacteria-carryingparticles (BCPs) in the operating room (OR) and the rate of infections. READ MORE

  2. 2. Numerical Investigations of Turbulent Flow in Water Turbines

    Author : Håkan Nilsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Multiblock; Parallel; Visualization; Validation; Verification; Turbine; CFD; Francis; Numerical; Kaplan;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates turbulent flow in water turbines, focusing onthe flow in the vicinity of reaction water turbine runners such as theKaplan runner and the Francis runner. The method of investigationis principally numerical although some experimental observations andmeasurements made in the present work and elsewhere are included. READ MORE

  3. 3. Singular Integral Equations: Applications to Elasticity and Numerical Solution

    Author : Jonas Englund; Matematik LTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Datalogi; numerisk analys; system; kontroll; fracture mechanics; second kind integral equation; Nyström scheme; Computer science; control; systems; numerical analysis;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to develop stable, accurate, and efficient numerical algorithms for the solution of certain problems in materials science using integral equations. All the appearing integral equations are of the second kind. Such equations are typically well suited for numerical solution. READ MORE

  4. 4. Heat and Mass Transfer in Built Structures - Numerical Analyses

    Author : Jinkai Wang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : air convection; heat; numerical procedure; air and moisture transport; long-term thermal performance; numerical stability; gas-filled foam; thermal aging; simulation;

    Abstract : Heat and mass transport processes are often present simultaneously in built structures in building applications. The emphasis of this thesis is to contribute to knowledge about predicting the effects of combined heat and mass transport in built structures. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical Modelling of Diesel Spray Injection, Turbulence Interaction and Combustion

    Author : Fabian Kärrholm Peng; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Atomization; Spray; Flame; Cavitation; Ignition Delay; Lift-off; Combustion; Computational Fluid Dynamics; Numerical Scheme; TVD; Diesel; Turbulence Model;

    Abstract : This thesis covers two main topics. The first is numerical modelling ofcavitating diesel injector flows, focusing on describing suchflows using asingle-phase cavitation model based on a barotropic equation of statetogetherwith a homogenous equilibrium assumption. READ MORE
