  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. Simulation and Analysis of Ultrasonic Wave Propagation in Pre-stressed Screws

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

    Author : Erik Andrén; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The use of ultrasound to measure preload in screws and bolts has been studied quite frequently the last decades. The technique is based on establishing a relationship between preload and change in time of flight (TOF) for an ultrasonic pulse propagating back and forth through a screw. READ MORE

  3. 3. Extraction of tool reaction forces using LS-DYNA and its use in Autoform sheet metal forming simulation

    University essay from Blekinge Tekniska Högskola/Institutionen för maskinteknik

    Author : Esbjörn Zachén; [2019]
    Keywords : Sheet Metal Forming; Stamping Die; blank holder; Structural Analysis; Finite Element Simulation;

    Abstract : In product development there is still potential to decrease lead times with faster and more accurate simulations. The objective of this thesis was to study whether Finite Element (FE) simulations using explicit LS-DYNA to extract reaction forces from sheet metal forming tools during forming, could be used to improve existing FE models in sheet metal forming software AutoForm.

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. CFD Simulation of Fluid Flow During Laser Metal Wire Deposition using OpenFOAM : 3D printing

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

    Author : Jennifer Lundkvist; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The focus of this work was to simulate the fluid flow within a melt pool geometry, during an additive manufacturing process, implementing the CFD software OpenFOAM version 1806. Two separate models were created and run during this work, the first using a temperature mapping from a finite element (FE) model and the second being a free-standing model with Gaussian distributed laser beam striking down on the top surface.
