  1. 1. Engine Encapsulation for Increased Fuel Efficiency of Road Vehicles

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Blago Minovski; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; coupled simulations; powertain cooling systems; warm-up; 1D simulations; thermal engine encapsulation; cool-down; fuel consumption; numerical analysis; 3D CFD simulations;

    Abstract : Thermal engine encapsulation is an increasingly popular design choice, which insulates the engine from the external environment and retains heat in the engine after it is turned off. This decelerates motor cool-down and increases the probability for high initial temperature at a subsequent engine start, resulting in shorter warm-up and reduced friction between engine parts.

  2. 2. Collision Threshold Pressure A novel measure of voice function Effects of vocal warm-up, vocal loading and resonance tube phonation in water

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Laura Enflo; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The phonation threshold pressure (PTP), i.e., the smallest amount of subglottal pressure needed to initiate and sustain vocal fold oscillation, is frequently difficult to measure due to the difficulty for some subjects to produce extremely soft phonation. In addition, PTP values are often quite scattered. READ MORE

  3. 3. Coupled Simulations of Cooling and Engine Systems for Unsteady Analysis of the Benefits of Thermal Engine Encapsulation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Blago Minovski; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Oil system; Cooling system; Drive cycle; CFD simulations; Fuel consumption; Engine encapsulation; 1D simulations;

    Abstract : A well-designed engine encapsulation can extend engine cool-down time significantly - on the order of 500 - 700%. This is expected to have a sensitive influence on the fuel consumption due to the increased probability for high oil temperatures at the following engine start, reduced length of the initial warm-up period and consequently, reduced friction losses.

  4. 4. Efficient Memory Modeling During Simulation and Native Execution

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nikos Nikoleris; Uppsala universitet.; Uppsala universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; performance analysis; cache performance; multicore performance; memory system; memory bandwidth; memory contention; performance prediction; multi-threading; multiprocessing systems; program diagnostics; commodity multicores; multithreaded program resource requirements; performance counters; scalability bottleneck; scalability improvement; Computer Science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Application performance on computer processors depends on a number of complex architectural and microarchitectural design decisions. Consequently, computer architects rely on performance modeling to improve future processors without building prototypes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Alternative Measures of Phonation: Collision Threshold Pressure and Electroglottographic Spectral Tilt Extra: Perception of Swedish Accents

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Laura Enflo; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Engineering physics Acoustics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk fysik Akustik;

    Abstract : The collision threshold pressure (CTP), i.e. the smallest amount of subglottal pressure needed for vocal fold collision, has been explored as a possible complement or alternative to the now commonly used phonation threshold pressure (PTP), i.e. READ MORE
