  1. 1. Process modelling based on data from an evaporation and a CTMP process : Analysis of energy efficiency and process variability

    Author : Daniel Ekbåge; Lars Nilsson; Helena Håkansson; Per Engstrand; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CTMP; process modelling; evaporation; energy efficiency; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Abstract : The manufacture of pulp and paper is an energy intensive process configured of several unit processes that shape a network of flows of wood chips, chemical pulp, mechanical pulp, paperboard, steam and other important components. Improved energy efficiency supports sustainability of the process and the products. READ MORE

  3. 3. Improved Usage of Wood Raw Material through Modification of the Kraft Process

    Author : Daniel Tavast; Elisabet Brännvall; Mikael Lindström; Martin Lawoko; Kerstin Forsberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; kraft process; impregnation; xylan; spruce; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract :    The kraft process is a complex system with many variables, and though the process is fairly well understood, there is still much we do not know.    This thesis examines some aspects of the kraft process that could prove to be of interest for the pulp and paper industry, specifically, the impact of wood chip impregnation and of the chemical structure of xylan on spruce kraft pulp.

  4. 4. Ruin probabilities and first passage times for self-similar processes

    Author : Zbigniew Michna; Matematisk statistik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Simulation of Ruin Probability; Monte Carlo Method; Skorokhod Topology; Weak Convergence; Rice s Formula; Fluid Model; Risk Model; Scaled Brownian Motion; Long Range Dependence; Fractional Brownian Motion; Renewal Process; Levy Motion; Stable Process; Self-Similar Process; Gaussian Process; Ruin Probability; First Passage Time; Exponential Bound; Picands Constant.; Mathematics; Matematik;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates ruin probabilities and first passage times for self-similar processes. We propose self-similar processes as a risk model with claims appearing in good and bad periods. Then, in particular, we get the fractional Brownian motion with drift as a limit risk process.

  5. 5. Tribological behaviour of HVAF-sprayed WC-based coatings: : Role of process variables and binder chemistry

    Author : Kaveh Torkashvand; Mohit Kumar Gupta; Shrikant V. Joshi; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tribological Behaviour; HVAF; WC-Based Coatings; Process Variables; Binder Chemistry; Tribologisk Prestanda; HVAF; WC-baserade Beläggningar; Parametervariabler; Bindemedelskemi; Production Technology; Produktionsteknik;

    Abstract : Tungsten carbide (WC) based metallic matrix coatings sprayed using high velocity air fuel (HVAF) technique have attracted increasing attention as they show excellent tribological performance in various wear conditions. In the HVAF method, particles’ in-flight temperature and velocity can be influenced by the process variables including nozzle configuration as well as feedstock particle size range. READ MORE
