  1. 1. Mechanical characterization and modelling of iron ore pellets

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Gustaf Gustafsson; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering mechanics - Solid mechanics; Teknisk mekanik - Fastkroppsmekanik; Hållfasthetslära; Solid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Transportation and storage are important parts in the process chain for producers of iron ore pellets. Knowledge and optimization of these processes are very important for further efficiency progress and increased product quality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Real and complex Monge-Ampère equations, statistical mechanics and canonical metrics

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Jakob Hultgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Statistical Mechanics; Point Processes; Hessian manifolds; Kähler geometry; Optimal Transport; Canonical metrics; Complex Monge-Ampère equations; Real Monge-Ampère equations; Kähler-Einstein metrics; Point Processes; Hessian manifolds; Kähler geometry; Optimal Transport; Canonical metrics; Complex Monge-Ampère equations; Real Monge-Ampère equations; Kähler-Einstein metrics;

    Abstract : Recent decades has seen a strong trend in complex geometry to study canonical metrics and the way they relate to geometric analysis, algebraic geometry and probability theory. This thesis consists of four papers each contributing to this field. The first paper sets up a probabilistic framework for real Monge-Ampère equations on tori. READ MORE

  3. 3. Reliability Assessment and Probabilistic Optimization in Structural Design

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rami Mansour; Mårten Olsson; Xioping Du; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Reliability-based design optimization RBDO ; First- and Second-Order Reliability Method FORM and SORM ; Response Surface Single Loop RSSL ; Probability of failure; Reliability Assessment; Probability of fatigue failure; Solid Mechanics; Hållfasthetslära;

    Abstract : Research in the field of reliability based design is mainly focused on two sub-areas: The computation of the probability of failure and its integration in the reliability based design optimization (RBDO) loop. Four papers are presented in this work, representing a contribution to both sub-areas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mechanical modeling of granite subjected to contact loading

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Hossein Shariati; Per-Lennart Larsson; Francois Hild; Mahdi Saadati; Timo Saksala; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solid Mechanics; Hållfasthetslära;

    Abstract : The mechanical properties of Bohus granite subjected to contact loading is investigated based on experimental and numerical results. An elasto-plastic constitutive material model combined with a damage description is employed. The material model parameters are determined based on experimental results. READ MORE

  5. 5. Computational model of abdominal aortic aneurysm inception and evolution

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Andrii Grytsan; T. Christian Gasser; Nicholas Hill; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; aneurysm; three dimensional; elastin degradation; growth; remodeling; fluid-solid-growth model; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : Incidence of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is increasing in the aging society of the western world. Development of AAA is mostly asymptomatic and is characterized by a bulge in the abdominal aorta. However, AAA may suddenly rupture, which results in an internal bleeding associated with a high mortality rate. READ MORE
