  1. 1. Thermal stresses in load-bearing glass-timber components

    Author : Karin Lundstedt; Erik Serrano; Ola Dahlblom; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Thermal stresses; thermal failure; glass and wood construction; incident solar radiation; shading; cracks; temperature difference; finite element method.; Technology byts ev till Engineering ; Teknik;

    Abstract : Thermal stresses can arise in glass used in architectonic realisations in buildings as a result of solar irradiation:  that is, sunlight.  The magnitude of these thermal stresses depends on the temperature conditions in the glass in terms of the temperature differences between warm and cold areas.

  2. 2. Modelling and Simulation of Thermal Radiation in Biomass Combustion

    Author : Thomas Nilsson; Förbränningsfysik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; heat load; gas turbine; Thermal engineering; applied thermodynamics; Termisk teknik; termodynamik; porous media; fixed bed; biomass; wood; FG-DVC; combustion; DOM; P1-approximation; Mie theory; RDG-PFA; EWBM; thermal radiation; soot;

    Abstract : This thesis presents numerical investigations and simulations of fixed bed combustion of wood, models for predicting thermal radiative properties of particles and gases related to the combustion of wood, and a review of heat load calculations in gas turbines. All subjects have a common factor in thermal radiation. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thermal models of buildings : determination of temperatures, heating and cooling loads : theories, models and computer programs

    Author : Kurt Källblad; Institutionen för byggvetenskaper; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building construction; Computer Programs; Windows; Infiltration; Comfort; Walls; Indoor Climate; Climate; Ventilation; Cooling Load; Heating Load; Buildings; Thermal Models; Building Physics; Energy; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The need to estimate indoor temperatures, heating or cooling load and energy requirements for buildings arises in many stages of a buildings life cycle, e.g. at the early layout stage, during the design of a building and for energy retrofitting planning. Other purposes are to meat the authorities requirements given in building codes. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analysis of thermal shock in brittle materials

    Author : Marianne Collin; KTH; []
    Keywords : thermal shock; thermal stress; stress intensity; vickers indentation; alumina; silicon varbide whisker reinforced alumina;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns thermal shock damage of ceramicmaterials. More specifically the work is focused on theoreticaland practical aspects of a new technique for determining thethermal shock resistance of brittle materials. READ MORE

  5. 5. Thermal Modelling of Small Cage Induction Motors

    Author : Gunnar Kylander; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal network; thermal model; losses; TEFC; induction motor;

    Abstract : The loadability of electric machines is above all determined by temperature limits. In this work, thermal network models, suitable for totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) induction motors, are used to predict the machine temperatures. READ MORE
