  1. 1. Development of a Test Suite for Verification & Validation of OpenFOAM

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad mekanik

    Author : Simon Persson; [2017]
    Keywords : Verification; Validation; OpenFOAM; CFD; MMS; Manufactured Solution;

    Abstract : Computational fluid dynamics is an important tool which can be used to simulatevarious properties of a flow. CFD simulations are used within the nuclear powerindustry to aid in the evaluation of thermal loads within a given system. In order toverify and validate some aspects of the open source solver OpenFOAM a test suitewas developed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Silicon solar cells: basics of simulation and modelling : Using the mathematical program Maple to simulate and model a silicon solar cell

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Fakulteten för hälsa, natur- och teknikvetenskap (from 2013)

    Author : Sebastian Ekhagen; [2017]
    Keywords : solar cell; semiconductor; physics; condensed matter physics; solid state physics; applied physics; solcell; halvledare; fysik; material fysik; applicerad fysik; fasta tillståndets fysik.;

    Abstract : The main goal of this thesis was to simulate a solar cell with the symbolic manipulation tool Maple and discuss the strength and weaknesses of using Maple instead of the already known simulation program PC1D. This was done mainly by solving the three essential differential equations governing the current density and excess electron and hole densities in the solar cell. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nonradial Solutions of a Nonlinear Elliptic Equation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematik (naturvetenskapliga fakulteten)

    Author : Sebastian Andersson; [2017]
    Keywords : Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : We consider the partial differential equation ∆u + f(u) = 0 in two dimensions,where f is a nonlinear function of u. Under certain assumptions on f we show that the equation has non-radial C² solutions with u(x) → 0 as |x| → 0 with an arbitrary number of zeros on each axis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Additive Manufacturing Applications for Wind Turbines

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.); KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)

    Author : Niklas Wahlström; Oscar Gabrielsson; [2017]
    Keywords : Additive Manufacturing; Wind Power Plant; Rotating Union; Additiv Tillverkning; Vindkraftverk; Roterskarv;

    Abstract : Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D-printing is an automated manufacturing process in which the component is built layer upon layer from a predefined 3D computer model. In contrast to conventional manufacturing processes where a vast volume of material is wasted due to machining, AM only uses the material that the component consists of. READ MORE

  5. 5. Multi-physical Simulations of High Voltage Circuit Breakers

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Julien POUILLY; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This report is the outcome of a 6-month Master’s Thesis carried out at General Electric Grid Solutions in Villeurbanne within the LTDT team in the Circuit Breaker and Bay Development (CB2D) department of the Apparatus Research Center (ARC). It presents both the innovative methodology adopted and the results obtained along the project. READ MORE
