  1. 1. Transition in Particle-laden Flows

    Author : Joy Klinkenberg; Luca Brandt; Shuisheng He; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transition; modal analysis; non-modal analysis; multi-phase flow; particle-laden; heavy particles; light particles;

    Abstract : This thesis presents the study of laminar to turbulent transition of particle laden flows. When a flow becomes turbulent, the drag increases one order of magnitude compared to a laminar flow, therefore, much research is devoted to understand and influence the transition. READ MORE

  2. 2. Direct and indirect magnetocaloric properties of first- and second-order phase transition materials

    Author : Sagar Ghorai; Peter Svedlindh; Martin Sahlberg; Gabriella Andersson; Ekkes Brück; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Magnetocaloric effect; Adiabatic temperature change; Direct measurement of magnetocaloric effect; Griffiths phase; Magneto-elastic transition; Magneto-structural transition; Second-order magnetic phase transition; First-order magnetic phase transition; Isothermal magnetic entropy change; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : The energy-efficient and environmentally friendly alternative cooling technology based on the magnetocaloric effect (MCE) is discussed in this thesis. The thesis has two major parts, one devoted to material characterization and the other to instrument development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Phase Diagrams, Microstructure and Phase Separation in Alkyl Glucoside Systems

    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; micellar network; NMR diffusometry; microemulsion; microstructure; phase diagram; phase separation; phase behaviour; alkyl glucoside; sugar surfactant;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis work was to study phase diagrams, microstructure and phase separation in alkylglucoside systems. Both alkyl glucoside/water systems and microemulsions with alkyl glucosides have been studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Polymer-Mediated Interactions and Phase Behaviour of Polymer-Particle Dispersions

    Author : Sara Haddadi; Teoretisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Simulations; Experiments; Particles; Phase transition; Stability; capillary induced phase separation; Polymer solutions; phase diagram; surface effects; Bulk properties;

    Abstract : Interactions between colloidal particles can be modelled by particles grafted with polymers. In this work, structural and physical properties of colloids are investigated under variation of parameters such as pH, ionic strength, and temperature, where aggregation and cluster formation can be monitored in aqueous solution.

  5. 5. Phase Transitions in Large Oscillator Lattices

    Author : Per Östborn; Antikens kultur och samhällsliv; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Matematisk och allmän teoretisk fysik; thermodynamics; statistical physics; phase transition; limit cycle oscillator; frequency entrainment; synchronization; sinus node; classical mechanics; Mathematical and general theoretical physics; arrhythmia; gravitation; quantum mechanics; relativity; klassisk mekanik; kvantmekanik; relativitet; statistisk fysik; termodynamik; Fysicumarkivet A:2003:Östborn;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with large networks of limit cycle oscillators. A limit cycle oscillator is a dynamical system that has a periodic attractor in phase space, and is defined in continuous time. To each such oscillator one can associate a natural frequency. READ MORE
