  1. 1. Turbulence-droplet interaction modelled by One-Dimensional-Turbulence

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Marco Fistler; [2017]

    Abstract : A stochastic model to study droplet/particle influence on the gas phase using the One-Dimensional-Turbulence model (ODT) is evaluated. To address one of the major problems for multiphase flow simulations, namely computational costs, the dimension-reduced model is used with the goal of predicting certain classes of these flows more efficiently.

  2. 2. Modeling of magnetohydrodynamic turbulence

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mekanik

    Author : Ola Widlund; [2000]
    Keywords : turbulence model; magnetohydrodynamic; mhd; magnetohydrodynamic turbulence; computational fluid dynamics; continuous casting;

    Abstract : Conventional one-point turbulence closures have beenextended with an additional transported scalar for modeling ofmagnetohydrodynamic (MHD) turbulence. The new scalar, α ,captures the length scale anisotropy and tendency towardstwo-dimensionality, which is characteristic feature of MHDturbulence, and allows accurate modeling of the Jouledissipation of turbulence.

  3. 3. On the Arctic Boundary Layer From Turbulence to Climate

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Meteorologiska institutionen (MISU)

    Author : Thorsten Mauritsen; Gunilla Svensson; Joao Teixeira; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atmospheric boundary layers; Turbulence; Stable stratification; Gravity waves; Mesoscale motion; Arctic climate; NATURAL SCIENCES Earth sciences Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences Meteorology; NATURVETENSKAP Geovetenskap Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap Meteorologi; atmosfärvetenskap; Atmospheric Sciences;

    Abstract : The boundary layer is the part of the atmosphere that is in direct contact with the ground via turbulent motion. At mid-latitudes the boundary layer is usually one or a few kilometers deep, while in the Arctic it is much more shallow, typically a few hundred meters or less. READ MORE

  4. 4. Turbulence-Assisted Planetary Growth Hydrodynamical Simulations of Accretion Disks and Planet Formation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Wladimir Lyra; Nikolai Piskunov; Thomas Henning; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; accretion; accretion disks; hydrodynamics; instabilities; methods: numerical; solar system: formation; planets and satellites: formation; magnetohydrodynamics MHD ; turbulence; diffusion; stars: planetary systems: formation; NATURAL SCIENCES Physics Astronomy and astrophysics; NATURVETENSKAP Fysik Astronomi och astrofysik;

    Abstract : The current paradigm in planet formation theory is developed around a hierarquical growth of solid bodies, from interstellar dust grains to rocky planetary cores. A particularly difficult phase in the process is the growth from meter-size boulders to planetary embryos of the size of our Moon or Mars. READ MORE

  5. 5. Turbulence in Business Networks A Longitudinal Study of Mergers, Acquisitions and Bankruptcies Involving Swedish IT-companies

    University dissertation from Ekonomihögskolan

    Author : Peter Dahlin; Virpi Havila; Peter Thilenius; Hans Kjellberg; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; business networks; change; dynamics; forces; IT; mergers; acquisitions; bankruptcies; turbulence; TECHNOLOGY Industrial engineering and economy Industrial organisation; administration and economics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Industriell teknik och ekonomi Industriell organisation; administration och ekonomi; Industriell ekonomi och organisation;

    Abstract : The end of the twentieth centry, and the beginning of the twenty-first, was a revolving period with many mergers, acquisitions and bankruptcies among Swedish IT-companies. Such events are likely to affect more than just the companies directly involved, i.e. READ MORE
