  1. 1. Temperature distribution in air tight cavities of steel framed modular buildings when exposed to fire

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser; Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för samhällsbyggnad och naturresurser

    Author : Elin Bergroth; Greta Torstensson; [2019]
    Keywords : Cavities; fire furnace; fire test; modular building; steel; TASEF; Brandugn; brandtest; hålrum; modulbyggnader; stål; TASEF;

    Abstract : A common way to construct large buildings is by assemble prefabricated modules around a load bearing steel construction. However, if a fire occurs these buildings can be subject to a rapid fire spread due to its cellular nature. READ MORE

  2. 2. Finite element modelling of strained nanowire heterostructures

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Alexander Grape Wyke; [2019]
    Keywords : Strain; nanowire; heterostructure; physics; nanophysics; COMSOL; simulation; lattice; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : When two materials with different lattice constants are grown together, this generates stress between them, and therefore strain. This strain causes them to have different thermal and electrical properties, and this is especially important on the nanoscale where changes have large impacts. READ MORE

  3. 3. Implementation of an 8-bit Dynamic Fixed-Point Convolutional Neural Network for Human Sign Language Recognition on a Xilinx FPGA Board

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik

    Author : Ricardo Núñez-Prieto; [2019]
    Keywords : Artificial Intelligence; Computer Vision; Machine Learning; Convolutional Neural Networks; FPGA; Sign Language Recognition; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : The goal of this thesis work is to implement a convolutional neural network on an FPGA device with the capability of recognising human sign language. The set of gestures that the neural network can identify has been taken from the Swedish sign language, and it consists of the signs used for representing the letters of the Swedish alphabet (a.k.a.

  4. 4. Investigation of reaction properties to facilitate chemical lumping of kinetic mechanisms

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Förbränningsfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Frej Ryde; [2019]
    Keywords : Combustion; Simulation; Chemical lumping; Mechanism reduction; Ant colony reduction; Hybrid optimization; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : Combustion process are used to improve modern society, but it comes with problems, like global warming and air pollution. Computer simulations are used to study combustion process to allow more efficient use of the fuel or decrease the creation of pollution. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cool Roof Coatings on Industrial Buildings : An Energy Study of Reflective Coatings

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för tillämpad fysik och elektronik

    Author : Isak Sjödin; [2019]
    Keywords : Energy; coating; cool roof coatings; industrial building; reflective coating; microspheres; expancel; ida-ice;

    Abstract : To evaluate the effect of cool roof coatings containing Expancel® thermoplastic microspheres on industrial buildings, a warehouse was built-up in the computer simulation software IDA-ICE. The warehouse was modelled in line with ASHRAE 90.1. 2004 ”Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings”. READ MORE
