  1. 1. Vacuum insulation in buildings : Means to prolong service life

    Author : Thomas I. Thorsell; Gudni Jóhannesson; Christer Sjöström; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vacuum insulation; thermal bridge; serpentine edge; coated film; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : Vacuum insulation panels, VIPs, constitute a new insulation material, 6 to 8 times better than traditional insulation materials, which utilizes the positive influence vacuum has on the thermal properties of certain materials. A VIP is a composite with a flat core enclosed by an envelope preventing the core to fill with gas. READ MORE

  2. 2. Parametric interactions with signals and the vacuum

    Author : Michael Roger Andre Simoen; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; vacuum; circuit-QED; interferometer; SQUID; dynamical Casimir effect; multimode resonator; pumpistor; mode conversion; superconducting circuits; parametric amplification;

    Abstract : In this thesis I present different experiments on superconducting circuits exploring parametric interactions with external signals and the vacuum in the microwave regime. These parametric processes are the result of the periodic modulation of a property of a system which results in different interactions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vacuum Dewatering of Cellulosic Materials : New insights into transport phenomena in the papermaking process

    Author : Björn Sjöstrand; Lars Nilsson; Christphe Barbier; Henrik Ullsten; Martin Hubbe; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Vacuum dewatering; numerical model; water removal; air penetration; papermaking; microfibrillated cellulose; dialcohol cellulose; strength additives; retention aids; drainage; water retention value; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : Working towards sustainable development within the forest industry, the dewatering of pulp and paper must be fully understood along with the dewatering of other cellulose-based materials. Huge amounts of energy are used during paper manufacturing so there is a potential for making the processes more energy-efficient. READ MORE

  5. 5. Synchrotron Radiation, Adsorption Isotherms and the Large Hadron Collider Vacuum System

    Author : Erik Wallén; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : H2; photon stimulated desorption; CO2; cryotrapping; liquid He; accelerators; isotherms; CH4; He; Monte Carlo simulations; synchrotron radiation; vacuum; CO; physisorption;

    Abstract : In circular particle accelerators and storage rings with relativistic beams of particles, e.g. electrons or protons, the vacuum performance of the accelerator is determined by the outgassing from the walls of the beam vacuum chamber. READ MORE
