  1. 1. Smart Energy Grids – Utilization of Space Heating Flexibility

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Johan Kensby; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; demand side management; heat pump; thermal energy storage; exhaust air heat pump; thermal storage in buildings; heat price control; smart; District heating; heat source shifting; demand response;

    Abstract : Buildings are the largest energy-using sector in the world. Since the generation of energy is highly associated with greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change, there is a large focus on reducing energy use in buildings. READ MORE

  2. 2. Corrosion of steel bars in fibre reinforced concrete: corrosion mechanisms and structural performance

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Carlos Gil Berrocal; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; residual flexural capacity; chloride-induced corrosion; electrical resistivity; Fibre reinforced concrete; reinforcement bond; durability; cracking;

    Abstract : The viability of employing fibre reinforcement to improve the durability performance of RC structures by delaying and/or reducing rebar corrosion and by mitigating the structural impact of corrosion-induced damage have been investigated. Given the enhanced crack control of FRC, it could be advantageous to use fibres in civil engineering structures to decrease the ingress of corrosion-initiation substances. READ MORE

  3. 3. Characterisation of Nonlinear Structural Dynamic Systems in Conceptual Design

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Niclas S Andersson; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Structural dynamics; Model order reduction; Nonlinear characterisation; Multi-body dynamics; Frequency response functions; Multisines; Response classification; Driveline systems; Concept design analysis; Stepped-sine; Support vector machine;

    Abstract : The engine and driveline systems of passenger cars generates and distributes the necessary driving power and are major contributors to vehicle emissions, noise and vibrations, etc. More environmental friendly technologies under development are expected to intensify and add new comfort related problems, since most of them affect vibration sources or system damping.

  4. 4. Computational Methods in Conceptual Structural Design

    University dissertation from Lund University. Faculty of Engineering (LTH), Division of Structural Mechanics

    Author : Vedad Alic; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; conceptual design; conceptual structural design; ground-borne vibrations; form finding; optimization; dynamic relaxation; graphic statics; reciprocal figures; strut-and-tie; finite element method; isogeometric analysis; NURBS; CAD; numerical modelling;

    Abstract : Conceptual design is the first phase in the design process in which all the requirements and design objectives are synthesized into conceptual alternatives. In practice today, major decisions regarding the buildings function, massing, and overall form are usually made during the first phase. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structural Reliability and Identification with Stochastic Simulation - Application to Railway Mechanics

    University dissertation from Lund University. Faculty of Engineering (LTH), Division of Structural Mechanics

    Author : Sadegh Rahrovani; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; model reduction; time-integration; finite element model; sleeper-ballast load characterization; stochastic simulation; Bayesian system identification;

    Abstract : System identification of structures based on measured response data can play a key role in improving reliability based structural designs. However, the experimental limitations of in situ tests and uncertainties of required model complexity together with the inverse nature of system identification give rise to a number of challenging issues.
