  1. 1. Numerical Modeling of Aluminum Sampling Process

    University essay from KTH/Materialvetenskap

    Author : Ming Yang; [2019]
    Keywords : Numerical modeling; Aluminum sampling; Solidification process; Inclusion distribution; Ansys Fluent.;

    Abstract : Castings of aluminum alloys are widely used in the automotive and aerospace industries since they play a significant role in improving the performance and fuel efficiency. In aluminum industries, sampling is the most common method to evaluate the inclusion levels which is a key indicator for the quality of the aluminum alloys. READ MORE

  2. 2. Flow Separation Control Utilizing Plasma Actuators

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Rymdteknik

    Author : Stefan Nilsson; [2018]
    Keywords : plasma actuator; flow separation control; fluid dynamics; aerodynamics; aerospace engineering; plasma physics;

    Abstract : The goal of this thesis was to both theoretically and experimentally show the effect of a plasma actuator for flow separation control.  In the theoretical part a solver was implemented in MATLAB code, to solve the governing equations describing the plasma actuator. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ray Tracing and Spectral Modelling of Excited Hydroxyl Radiation from Cryogenic Flames in Rocket Combustion Chambers

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Jaka Perovšek; [2018]
    Keywords : spectral modelling; excited hydroxyl radiation; OH* radiation; ray tracing; spectroscopy; rocket combustion chambers; rocket engines; hydrogen-oxygen combustion; combustion instabilities;

    Abstract : A visualisation procedure was developed which predicts excited hydroxyl (OH*) radiation from the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) solutions of cryogenic hydrogen-oxygen rocket flames. The model of backward ray tracing through inhomogeneous media with a continuously changing refractive index was implemented. READ MORE

  4. 4. Real-time Thermal Flow Predictions for Data Centers : Using the Lattice Boltzmann Method on Graphics Processing Units for Predicting Thermal Flow in Data Centers

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

    Author : Johannes Sjölund; [2018]
    Keywords : data center; airflow; computational fluid dynamics CFD ; lattice boltzmann method LBM ;

    Abstract : The purpose of this master thesis is to investigate the usage of the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM) of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for real-time prediction of indoor air flows inside a data center module. Thermal prediction is useful in data centers for evaluating the placement of heat-generating equipment and air conditioning. READ MORE

  5. 5. Multi-scale modelling of fire in accelerator tunnels: a CERN case study

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Author : Melchior Schepers; [2018]
    Keywords : Multi-scale modelling; CFD; tunnel fires; FDS; CERN; particle accelerator; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Multi-scale modellering is een nieuwe benadering in het modelleren van rook en brand in systemen waarbij de grootte van het domein een meer conventionele volledige 3D modellering onmogelijk maakt. Het domein wordt opgesplitst in een 1D en 3D gedeelte om zo de simulatietijd te verminderen. READ MORE
