  1. 1. Formation of non-metallic inclusions and the possibility of their removal during ingot casting

    Author : Lars Ragnarsson; Sichen Du; Carlo Mapelli; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ingot casting; tool steel; inclusion; runner; refractory; erosion; casting powder; cold model; argon shroud; reoxidation; oxygen measurement; CFD; PIV; Metallurgical process engineering; Metallurgisk processteknik;

    Abstract : The present study was carried out to investigate the formation and evolution of non-metallic inclusions during ingot casting. Emphasize have been on understanding the types of inclusions formed and developed through the casting process and on the development of already existing inclusions carried over from the ladle during casting.

  2. 2. Footbridge Dynamics : Human-Structure Interaction

    Author : Emma Zäll; Raid Karoumi; Mahir Ülker-Kaustell; Andreas Andersson; Peter Van den Broeck; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dynamics; vibration; footbridge; pedestrian bridge; human-structure interaction; runner; running loads; simplified models; Dynamik; vibration; gångbro; människa-bro-interaktion; löpare; löparlaster; förenklade modeller; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering;

    Abstract : For aesthetic reasons and due to an increased demand for cost-effective and environmentally friendly civil engineering structures, there is a trend in designing light and slender structures. Consequently, many modern footbridges are susceptible to excessive vibrations caused by human-induced loads. READ MORE

  3. 3. An experimental investigation of flow in a Kaplan runner : steady-state and transient

    Author : Kaveh Amiri; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Water turbines are since some years widely used for grid stabilization purposes according to their exceptional load variation capability which gives them the ability to compensate grid fluctuations initiated by the customer’s consumption or intermittent electricity production systems such as wind and solar power. Different renewable power generation technologies can be combined in mini-grids to electrify isolated villages and extend existing grid networks. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental investigation of a Kaplan runner under steady-state and transient operations
