    Keywords : sludge dewatering; sewage sludge; laboratory scale sludge treatment; dewatering sludge; dewatering sewage sludge; CST; capillary suction time test; centrifuge; lab-centrifuge; rheology; polymers conditioning; sludge conditioning; centrifuge on lab scale; evaluation of lab experiments; CST evaluation; mechanical de-watering evaluation; sludge dewatering at lab; lab scale dewatering process; sludge dewatering methods at lab; Chemical engineering; Lab centrifuge; Capillary Suction Time CST ; Mechanical sludge dewatering evaluation; Polymers conditioning of sludge; sewage sludge dewatering; methods for sludge dewatering at lab; water engineering; environmental engineering; vattenförsörjningsteknik; avloppsteknik; Chemistry;

    Abstract : After the sewage wastewater is collected from different households and directed to the treatment plants, it goes through several processes, which are physical, chemical and biological. The different processes remove the contaminant, and produce a semi-solid material named sludge. Sludge has a huge amount of liquid. READ MORE

  3. 3. Correlation of microstructural damage to functional properties of irradiated carbon fibre based composites used in neutron chopper discs

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Hållfasthetslära

    Author : Hanna Molin; [2019]
    Keywords : radiation; epoxy; carbon fiber; CFRP; ESS; European Spallation Source; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Understanding material behaviour has in the past enabled human development and will continue to characterize the various stages of our future development. The use of neutrons will greatly affect several research areas, such as sustainable energy production and cancer research, due to their interaction with nuclei. READ MORE

  4. 4. Options for Mechanical Hold Force for Sliding Doors

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Produktutveckling

    Author : Mikaela Albertsson; Jens Thieme Almkvist; [2019]
    Keywords : Sliding doors; Mechanical force; Product development; Ulrich Eppinger; Prototyping; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : ASSA ABLOY’s automatic sliding doors today have a constant hold force applied whenever the doors are closed. The force is adjustable between 0-60 N and is generated by a motor. In this project it has been investigated whether it is possible to install a mechanical alternative to this hold force instead. READ MORE

  5. 5. Mechanical and Thermal Characterisation of Polymer Films Exposed to Filling Products

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Centrum för analys och syntes

    Author : Erik Vu; [2019]
    Keywords : polymer technology; polymerteknologi; Technology and Engineering; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Knowledge on how polymeric materials changes or is affected when exposed to products is of interest and importance for many commercial applications. Understanding the product interaction on packaging materials is the key to preventing errors and increasing the quality of products. READ MORE
