    Abstract : Is it possible to increase traffic flows and decrease stand stills in rush hour traffic by tweaking existing traffic light signals? A vehicle’s engine running on idle is not useful in physical terms and emits unnecessary exhausts. By investigating and observing signal phase times on site in Hangzhou, China, an effort was made to find out if it was possible to get better flow and thus lower emissions by changing the traffic signal programs.

  2. 2. Development of a CFD Boundary Condition to Simulate a Perforated Surface

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Medet Kiflemariam; [2021]
    Keywords : Computational Fluid Dynamics; CFD; Boundary Condition; Bleed; Aerospace Engineering; Aeronautical Engineering; Physics;

    Abstract : In aircraft with jet propulsion engine intakes at supersonic speed, strong pressure waves referred to as shockwaves occur, which may interact with any present boundary layers along the intake surface. The adverse pressure gradients associated with Shock Wave-Boundary Layer Interaction (SWBLI) may cause boundary layer flow separation, which can result in disturbances of the flow that can be harmful to the device or decrease engine performance.

  3. 3. A comparative study on hole quality criteria on CFRP drilling

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Industriell Produktion

    Author : Jerome Paul Raenius Jeevanandham; Sakthivel Balaji; [2021]
    Keywords : CFRP; Composites; Hole quality; Delamination; Uncut fibers; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Drilling is an essential hole-making operation in the modern industrial world. Drilling operation is comparatively challenging in composites when compared to metals. Composites are heterogeneous and possess a high strength-to-weight ratio which makes it a challenge in composite drilling. READ MORE

  4. 4. Validating results from the Molten Salt Reactor Experiment by use of turbulent CFD simulations : A study of a modified U-tube shell-and-tube primary heat exchanger and radiator with molten salts

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Malcolm Akner; [2021]

    Abstract : Background Nuclear reactors utilizing molten fuels rather than solid fuels show a massive advantage in energy yield, waste handling and safety features. The only successful reactor utilizing a molten fuel was called the ‘Molten Salt Reactor Experiment’ (MSRE), built and operated in the Oak Ridge national laboratory (ORNL) in Tennessee, U.S.A.

  5. 5. A pre-study for functional coatings evaluated on light metals to be applied on a new HPDC Mg-alloy : Investigating tribological and thermophysical properties, as-cast and coated

    University essay from Jönköping University/JTH, Industriell produktutveckling, produktion och design

    Author : Louise Albo Zieme; Pontus Bergstedt; [2021]
    Keywords : reciprocating dry sliding wear test; thermophysical test; NiP-SiC; Ni-SiC; functional coatings; progressive scratch test; adhesion; magnesium alloy; aluminium alloy; hardness.;

    Abstract : Magnesium with two-thirds of the density compared to aluminium and one-quarter of steel, intrigues product developers and material scientists due to the light metal’s excellent combination of strength to weight ratio as well as their capability of being produced as a High Pressure Die Cast component compared to other ferrous or light metal alloys.   However, a magnesium alloy inherits some concerning drawbacks, limiting the exploitation in structural applications and mechanical design such as automotive, heavy machinery and aerospace components.
