    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för nationalekonomi med statistik

    Author : Anna Hedenbergh; Alma Hemberg; [2018-07-06]
    Keywords : EU ETS; carbon leakage; difference-in-differences; emission-intensive industries; Foreign Direct Investments FDI ; investment leakage; operational leakage; permits; Pollution Haven Effect; Porter Hypothesis; relocation; Samhällsvetenskapligt miljövetarprogram;

    Abstract : In the recent decades, the subject of a shift of emission from regions with stringent regulation to developing countries has arisen. At the same time, regulated countries such as Sweden has experienced less industrial growth. READ MORE

  2. 2. Experimental Investigation of Added Mass and Damping on a Model Kaplan Turbine for Rotor Dynamic Analysis

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Timmy Nyman; [2018]
    Keywords : Added mass; added damping; rotor dynamics; kaplan turbine; vibrations; fluid dynamics;

    Abstract : The concept of added hydrodynamic properties such as added mass is of importance in modern hydropower development, mainly for rotor dynamic calculations. Added mass could result in reduced natural frequencies and altered mode compared to existing simulation models. READ MORE

  3. 3. Residual stresses and distortions in austenitic stainless steel 316L specimens manufactured by Selective Laser Melting

    University essay from Högskolan Väst/Avdelningen för svetsteknologi (SV)

    Author : Henrik Nöbauer; [2018]
    Keywords : Residual Stresses; Distortions; SLM; Selective Laser Melting; 316L; X-ray diffraction; XRD; ESPI; Hole drilling;

    Abstract : Residual stresses are one of the major challenges in additive manufacturing of metallic materials today. They are induced during manufacturing because of the rapid local heating and cooling and may cause distortions, cracking and delamination between layers. READ MORE
