  1. 1. Multidisciplinary Modelling of Water Piston Oscillations in Wave Energy Converters : Assessment of Flow Resistance Through CFD Modelling with Fluid Structure Interactions

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för ingenjörs- och kemivetenskaper (from 2013)

    Author : Linnéa Tebelius; [2022]
    Keywords : Fluid Mechanics; Point Absorber; CFD; WEC; Waves4Power; Strömnigsmekanik; Point Absorber; CFD; WEC; Waves4Power;

    Abstract : As the world’s need for electricity increases, so does its demand for sustainable energy with low to no greenhouse gas emissions. One of these renewable sources of energy is the Ocean which is one of the world’s largest and most predictable energy source, where the extraction of energy can be from waves or tidal current, with zero greenhouse gas emissions during production.

  2. 2. CFD Analysis of the Flow Into a Preheater

    University essay from KTH/Teknisk mekanik

    Author : Eric Axtelius; [2022]
    Keywords : Mechanics; Fluid Mechanics; CFD; Preheater; Moisture Separator; Nuclear; Steam; Heat Transfer;

    Abstract : This project has investigated and formed a basis for the thermal- and flow-induceddynamic loads in the lower parts of a preheater situated in a nuclear power plant.Special attention has been given to the bottom plate that separates the heated andnon-heated secondary steam. READ MORE

  3. 3. Oil Autonomy of a Turbojet

    University essay from KTH/Flygdynamik

    Author : Florian Steiner; [2022]
    Keywords : Fluid Mechanics; Turbojet; Oil circuit; Fluid Mekanik; Turbojet; Oljekrets;

    Abstract : The oil circuit of a jet engine is required to lubricate and cool mechanical parts. The oil is pumped from the oil tank and flows through heat exchangers. Then it is injected on the bearings for lubrication and cooling, before being scavenged at the bottom of the sumps and finally flows back to the oil tank. READ MORE

  4. 4. Experimental pressure loss analysis in a mini tube for a fully developed turbulent airflow. : Mini channels of lengths 22.5 mm to 150 mm in length with a constant diameter of 1.5 mm

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Mekanisk värmeteori och strömningslära

    Author : Soumen Ghosh; [2022]
    Keywords : Experimental fluid mechanics; Pressure drop; friction factor; Internal flow; fully developed flow; turbulent flow; Fluid mechanics; Ideal gas; Moody s chart; Additive manufacturing; compressible flow; turbine blade cooling; mini channel;

    Abstract : The cooling systems in a gas turbine are especially important as the turbine blades and vanes are exposed to extreme temperatures. The relatively cool air is extracted from the compressors and fed to the turbines to cool the turbine blades. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fluid flow features in swirl injectors for ethanol fueled rocket : - Analysis using computational fluid dynamics

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Emil Vejlens; Dylan De Jourday; [2022]
    Keywords : Fluid Mechanics; Rocket Science; Fuel injectors; Computational Fluid Dynamics; Swirling Flows; Fuel Mixing;

    Abstract : A swirl injector for a rocket engine being developed by \emph{AESIR} (Association of EngineeringStudents in Rocketry) was simulated with different geometric parameters. The swirl injector is usedto atomize the ethanol used as fuel and to create a spray that mixes well with the oxidizer withinthe combustion chamber. READ MORE
