  1. 1. Non-Spherical Particle Interaction in Duct and Jet Flow

    Author : Ammar Hazim; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solid-gas flow; turbulence modulation; duct flow; coaxial jets flow; swirl jet flow; active flow control; synthetics jet; biomass powder; non-spherical particles; PIV measurement; Engineering mechanics - Fluid mechanics; Teknisk mekanik - Strömningsmekanik; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Wood waste is the most popular biomass recourse for many nations. Burned wood can, direct or indirect, release one of the greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide. The process can still be seen as a renewable source of energy since replanting of the trees and crops are consuming nearly the same amount of carbon dioxide through photosynthesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Flow of Colloidal Mesophases

    Author : S. Junaid S. Qazi; Adrian Rennie; Ritva Serimaa; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : This dissertation presents new work and results in the flow of complex fluids and experimental methodologies for their investigation. Plate-like colloidal particles of kaolinite and nickel hydroxide are studied. A study of lamellar fragments and their mixture with the nickel hydroxide particles is also presented. READ MORE

  3. 3. Unsaturated Solute Transport in a Semiarid Catchment - Nonlinear Analyses and Modelling

    Author : Pernilla Öhrström; Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geografi; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; unsaturated zone; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; solute transport; scaling; soils; semiarid regions; heterogeneity; preferential flow; fractals;

    Abstract : Unsaturated solute transport is highly variable and therefore difficult to predict. In semi-arid areas, where water resources are limited, the presence of macropores is of great importance for crop production. The bromide ion (Br-) and dye tracers are useful for studies of water movement. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Lagrangian Stochastic Advective-Reactive Approach to Modeling Solute Transport in Hydrological Systems

    Author : Archana Gupta; KTH; []
    Keywords : solute transport; groundwater transport; unsaturated zone; stream hydrology; stream networks; stochastic processes; mass transfer kinetics; preferential flow; temporal moments; catchment hydrology; Lagrangian transport model;

    Abstract : The Lagrangian stochastic advective-reactive modelingapproach has been used for analyzing transport of bothnonreactive and reactive solutes in different hydrologicalsystems (structured soil, groundwater, mining waste rockdeposits and surface waters including single stream and networkof streams) and at different spatio-temporal scales (rangingfrom laboratory column-scale to catchment-scale). Further, afirst step has been taken to extending the Lagrangianstochastic advective-reactive modeling methodology to integratethe soil-groundwater-stream transport through a catchment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Soil compaction: effects on soil hydraulic properties and preferential water flow

    Author : Mona Mossadeghi Björklund; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : Soil compaction caused by passage of agricultural machinery over the surface is an issue in many agricultural soils with a high clay content. Compaction is known to modify soil pore structure and soil hydraulic properties, but can also affect the occurrence of preferential flow. READ MORE
