  1. 1. Particle-laden Turbulent Wall-bounded Flows in Moderately Complex Geometries

    Author : Azad Noorani; Philipp Schlatter; Helge Andersson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; turbulent; complex geometry; particle; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : Wall-bounded turbulent dispersed multiphase flows occur in a variety of industrial, biological and environmental applications. The complex nature of the carrier and the particulate phase is elevated to a higher level when introducing geometrical complexities such as curved walls. READ MORE

  2. 2. Estimating Human Limb Motion Using Skin Texture and Particle Filtering

    Author : Björn Holmberg; Håkan Lanshammar; Virgil Stokes; Christopher L. Vaughan; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Human motion analysis; Skin texture; Monte Carlo estimation; Particle filter; Mutual Information; Simulated Annealing; Marker-free; Rigid body transformation; 2D correlation; Systems engineering; Systemteknik;

    Abstract : Estimating human motion is the topic of this thesis. We are interested in accurately estimating the motion of a human body using only video images capturing the subject in motion. Video images from up to two cameras are considered.The first main topic of the thesis is to investigate a new type of input data. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stress, Flow and Particle Transport in Rock Fractures

    Author : Tomofumi Koyama; Lanru Jing; Marc Boulon; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Numerical simulation; laboratory experiments; rock fracture; coupled stress-flow-tracer test; shear displacement; fluid flow; particle transport; finite element method FEM ; particle tracking method; Navier-Stokes equation; Reynolds equation; streamline velocity dispersion.; Geoengineering; Geoteknik;

    Abstract : The fluid flow and tracer transport in a single rock fracture during shear processes has been an important issue in rock mechanics and is investigated in this thesis using Finite Element Method (FEM) and streamline particle tracking method, considering evolutions of aperture and transmissivity with shear displacement histories under different normal stresses, based on laboratory tests. The distributions of fracture aperture and its evolution during shear were calculated from the initial aperture fields, based on the laser-scanned surface roughness features of replicas of rock fracture specimens, and shear dilations measured during the coupled shear-flow-tracer tests in laboratory performed using a newly developed testing apparatus in Nagasaki University, Nagasaki, Japan.

  4. 4. Numerical modelling of fluid flow and particle transport in rough rock fracture during shear

    Author : Tomofumi Koyama; Lahru Jing; Auli Niemi; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; single rock fracture; coupled stress-flow test; shear displacement; fluid flow; particle; Geoengineering; Geoteknik;

    Abstract : The effects of different shearing processes and sample sizes on the fluid flow anisotropy and its impact on particle transport process in rough rock fractures are significant factors that need to be considered in the performance and safety assessments of underground nuclear waste repositories. The subjects, however, have not been adequately investigated previously in either laboratory experiments or numerical modeling. READ MORE
