  1. 1. Small-Scale Production of Fuel-Cell Hydrogen

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Christian Hulteberg; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydrogen; Chemical Engineering; Catalysis; Small-Scale;

    Abstract : The work presented here aims at producing hydrogen for proton-exchange fuel-cell applications from hydrocarbons. This thesis describes an integrated catalytic converter comprising a steam-reforming reactor (heat of reaction supplied by catalytic combustion), a water-gas shift reactor and a preferential oxidation of carbon monoxide reactor, and the work performed on the fuel processing catalysts therein.

  2. 2. Fire Dynamics in Multi-Room Compartment Fires

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Nils Johansson; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fire safety engineering; fire dynamics; multi-room compartment; numerical experiment; small-scale experiment; hot-gas-layer temperature; hot-gas-layer interface height; reproducibility;

    Abstract : Fire dynamics in multi-room compartments are explored in this thesis and new methods to study conditions in rooms adjacent to the room of fire origin are presented. Simple and transparent engineering methods can create good possibilities for understanding different complex phenomena present in fire science. READ MORE

  3. 3. Fatigue crack growth experiments and analyses - from small scale to large scale yielding at constant and variable amplitude loading

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Pär Ljustell; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fracture mechanics; fatigue crack growth; finite elements analysis; small scale yielding SSY ; large scale yielding LSY ; low cycle fatigue LCF ; crack tip opening displacement CTOD ; crack closure; potential drop method; constant amplitude load; variable amplitude load; inconel 718; stainless steel 316L;

    Abstract : This thesis is on fatigue crack growth experiments and assessments of fatigue crack growth rates. Both constant and variable amplitude loads in two different materials are considered; a nickel based super-alloy Inconel 718 and a stainless steel 316L. READ MORE

  4. 4. Reactive filter materials for ammonium and phosphorus sorption in small scale wastewater treatment

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Annelie Hedström; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; VA-teknik; Urban Water Engineering;

    Abstract : Existing small scale wastewater treatment systems in Nordic countries have generally low treatment efficiency regarding phosphorus and nitrogen. Even though only 15% of the Swedish population is connected to on-site wastewater treatment systems, the total discharge of phosphorus from these systems exceeds the total discharge from all municipal treatment plants in Sweden.

  5. 5. The Aerodynamic Correlation of a Scale Model with a Full Size Car

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Lasse Malmkjaer Christoffersen; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cooling flow.; Correlation; Experiment; Reynolds number; Road Vehicle Aerodynamics; CFD; Scale model;

    Abstract : Reducing the Worlds consumption of energy has become an important part of the current political and environmental debate. The reasons are obvious: World population is increasing, continued growth in living standards, finite availability of resources and finally green house gas emissions from energy production have to be brought down to stabilize temperatures.
