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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Lars Ragnarsson; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : 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; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Metallurgical process and manufacturing engineering Metallurgical process engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Metallurgisk process- och produktionsteknik 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. Transients in high head Francis turbines

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Chiragkumar Trivedi; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Francis turbine; load variation; load rejection; start-stop; emergency shutdown; transient; runaway; computational fluid dynamics; runner; transients; blade; power grid; Engineering mechanics - Fluid mechanics; Teknisk mekanik - Strömningsmekanik; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : On demand energy market and favourable government policies to encourage the usage of renewable energy have led to a dramatic increase of grid connected wind, solar, and other power in recent years. Penetration of the power above manageable limit, produced using intermittent energy sources, to meet the demand has induced instable grid operations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Footbridge Dynamics Human-Structure Interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Emma Zäll; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : 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; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    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

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

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Kaveh Amiri; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : 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

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

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Kaveh Amiri; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Hydropower is a key part in electricity production nowadays. Hydropower electricity production rose to 3579.5 TWh in 2013, ranked as the second source of electricity production in the world after fossil fuels. It is the principle source of renewable electricity production, producing 16. READ MORE
