    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Train Aerodynamics; Slipstream; Wake Flow; Detached-EddySimulation; Proper Orthogonal Decomposition; Koopman Mode Decomposi-tion; Surface-mounted Cube; Aerodynamic Train Model; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Fluid mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Strömningsmekanik; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Vehicle engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Farkostteknik;

    Abstract : Train transportation is a vital part of the transportation system of today anddue to its safe and environmental friendly concept it will be even more impor-tant in the future. The speeds of trains have increased continuously and withhigher speeds the aerodynamic effects become even more important. READ MORE

  3. 3. Shedding light on the bluff body wake instability

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Renzo Trip; KTH.; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The flow around a vehicle, for example, results in a large resistance and can generate a complex swirl pattern behind the body of the vehicle, which can lead to strong alternating lateral forces. There is therefore a clear need for more fundamental understanding of the instability of this so-called wake region, which arises behind bluff bodies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Efficient Protocols for Active RFID

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Björn Nilsson; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; wake-up radio; energy consumption; energy efficient; Active RFID; protocol; RFID; throughput; back-off; RFID-system; delay;

    Abstract : Radio frequency identification (RFID) systems come in different flavours; passive, active, semi-passive, or semi-active. Those different types of RFID are supported by different, internationally accepted protocol standards as well as by several accepted proprietary protocols. READ MORE
