  1. 1. Development of a Nordic BWR plant model in APROS and design of a power controller using the control rods

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Jonathan Al-Ani; [2021]
    Keywords : APROS; Dynamic process simulation; System code; Nuclear reactor; nuclear power; BWR; Boiling Water Reactor; closed cycle; steam cycle; one-dimensional flow; Westinghouse; control rods; APROS; Dynamisk processimulering; Beräkningsmodell; Kärnkraft; BWR; Kokvattenreaktor; ångcykel; en-dimensionell flödesmodell; Westinghouse; kontrollstavar;

    Abstract : In this master thesis an input-model of a Nordic BWR power plant has been developed in APROS. The plant model contains key systems and major thermohydraulic components of the steam cycle, including I&C systems (i.e. power, pressure, level and flow controls). READ MORE

  2. 2. Adaptive Clay Formations

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Anton Johansson; Edurne Morales Zúñiga; [2021]
    Keywords : digital fabrication; clay; clay construction; earthen construction; construction robotics; path planning; mobile robotics; computational design; robotics; non-linear fabrication; Arts and Architecture;

    Abstract : Rapid Clay Formations (RCF) is an ongoing research project investigating robotic aggregation of soft clay elements. This thesis presents our research into RCF construction on an architectural scale. It outlines our development of a fabrication process suitable for the construction of tall and slender structures made out of clay. READ MORE

  3. 3. Consumption of sustainable food products : A study of the Sustainable purchase perception matrix and Sustainable lead consumers; A life cycle assessment of BäR smoothie

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper; Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Cecilia Melén; Mirea Wolff; [2021]
    Keywords : Compromise; Confidence; WTP; PCE; Sustainable lead consumer; Sustainability marketing; Scepticism; Life cycle assessment; LCA; Environmental impact; Global warming; Eutrophication; Primary energy use; Smoothie; Kompromiss; Självförtroende; WTP; PCE; Hållbar marknadsföring; Skepticism; Livscykelanalys; LCA; Miljöpåverkan; Global uppvärmning; Övergödning; Primärenergianvändning; Smoothie;

    Abstract : Part 1 The scientific community has identified an attitude-action gap for demographic and psychographic variables when studying sustainable purchase behaviour. By focusing on what happens during the purchase instead of the purchaser, this cross-sectional study aims to understand sustainable purchase behaviour when consumers purchase sustainable food.

  4. 4. Analysis of the effect of latent dimensions on disentanglement in Variational Autoencoders

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Joakim Dahl; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Disentanglement is a subcategory to Representaton learning where we, apart from believing that useful properties can be extracted from the data in a more compact form, also envision that the data itself is constituted from a lower-dimensional subset of explanatory factors. Explanatory factors are an ambiguous concept and what they portray varies with the dataset. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling Competitive Sorption of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFASs) to Soil and Sorbents

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten- och landskapslära

    Author : Linnea Georgii; [2021]
    Keywords : PFAS; modelling; competitive sorption; adsorption; isotherms; PFAS; modellering; konkurrenseffekter; adsorption; isotermer;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) have become contaminants of increasing concern to society due to the contamination of drinking water and the ecosystem. A better understanding of the sorption and transport of PFASs in soil systems is urgently needed, however there have been few studies dedicated to investigating competitive sorption among PFASs, and there is no available model to model such effects.
