  2. 2. Pressure loss characterization for cooling and secondary air system components in gas turbines

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

    Author : Frida Isaksson; [2017]
    Keywords : Gas turbines; cooling and secondary air system; pressure losses; discharge coefficient; minor loss; one-dimensional modelling;

    Abstract : There is a constant struggle to increase the efficiency in gas turbines, where one method is to have a higher inlet temperature to the turbine. Often, this results in temperatures higher than the critical temperature of the materials, which makes cooling of the components an important part of the turbine. READ MORE

  5. 5. Can the selective PDGF-receptor antagonist STI571 reduce hypoxia in solid tumors, and enhance drug uptake of Taxol, by lowering the interstitial fluid pressure in stroma rich breast carcinoma, BT-474

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för kemi och biomedicin (KOB)

    Author : Marcus Runeson; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Background Solid tumors have high interstitial fluid pressure, IFP. This cause a dramatic loss in uptake of anti cancer drugs with poor clinical outcome as result. Treatment with PDGF-receptor antagonist STI-571 lowers tumor IFP and enhances uptake of small compounds. READ MORE
