  1. 1. A Spatially Explicit Agent-Based Model of Human-Resource Interaction on Easter Island

    University essay from KTH/Numerisk analys, NA

    Author : Peter Steiglechner; [2020]
    Keywords : Agent-based modelling; applied mathematics; socio-economic modelling; Agentbaserad modellering; tillämpad matematik; socioekonomisk modellering;

    Abstract : The history of Easter Island, with its cultural and ecological mysteries, has attracted the interests of archaeologists, anthropologists, ecologists, and economists alike. Despite the great scientific efforts, uncertainties in the available archaeological and palynological data leave a number of critical issues unsolved and open to debate. READ MORE

  2. 2. Numerical Simulation of Sabot Discard Projectile

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

    Author : Karl Karlsson; [2020]
    Keywords : CFD; Sabot; Simulation; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : When designing an armour piercing kinetic energy projectile with a discarding sabot, it is important to know how the projectile is affected by the sabot during the discard. If the projectile has no active guiding systems, small disturbances to the initial flight path of the projectile can result in a significant deviance from its intended target. READ MORE

  3. 3. Control strategies evaluation for stabilizing a quadcopter docking on a side wall.

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : EDUARDO FUENTEVILLA BLANCO; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis contemplates the stabilization of a quadcopter in physical contact with a side wall via a mechanical arm. The drone is accelerated aiming to apply a greater force against the wall. Consequently, the drone adopts a tilted position that must be controlled. READ MORE

  4. 4. 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

  5. 5. Analysis of the intake grill for marine jet propulsion

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Marcus Söderberg Jansson; [2019]
    Keywords : Intake grill; Waterjet; Fluid Dynamics; Intagsgaller; Vattenjet; Strömning;

    Abstract : Marine waterjet propulsion is a technology that has been developed and refined since the early 1950’ and is proven highly useful for high speed applications with vessels in varying sizes. The intake grill is a component that is mounted in line with the hull to prevent debris from traveling through the waterjet. READ MORE
