  1. 1. Stabilisation of Steel Structures by Diaphragm Action of Trapezoidal Sheeting

    University essay from KTH/Bro- och stålbyggnad

    Author : Ondrej Novotny; [2020]
    Keywords : Diaphragm action; Stressed skin design; Trapezoidal sheeting; Corrugated sheet; Shear panels;

    Abstract : The main idea behind stabilisation by diaphragm action is to create a deep beam thatcan resist horizontal loads acting on a structure. It is achieved by connecting the sheetingto the primary structure of the roof so that the edge beams resist the bending momentthrough normal stresses and the sheeting resists the shear force through shear stresses.

  2. 2. Failure Modeling of Curved Composite Beams : Numerical Modeling of Failure Onset and Propagation in L-Profile Beams

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner

    Author : Suhas Gururaj Shetty; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The high strength/stiffness-to-weight ratio that composite materials exhibit has led to the utilization of composites as alternative to traditional materials in weight-critical applications. However, the highly anisotropic nature of composites renders the strength prediction under complex loading challenging. READ MORE

  3. 3. Understanding Sn-seeded InSb nanowire growth

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Fasta tillståndets fysik

    Author : Hengfang Zhang; [2017]
    Keywords : Science General;

    Abstract : III-Sb semiconductor nanowires have drawn a lot of attention because of their many promising applications, such as thermoelectric generation, low power high efficient electronics and quantum transport. Gold as a catalyst seed particle has been dominating for many years assisting nanowires growth. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ray Cast/Dose Superposition algorithm for proton grid therapy

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Medicinsk strålningsfysik (tills m KI)

    Author : Tibor Marusic; [2017]
    Keywords : Proton Grid Therapy Treatment Radiation Dose Distribution Superpositioning Interlace Planning System Volume Effect Ray Cast Algorithm Medical Trace Plan Program Python Computer Tomography Volume Of Interest;

    Abstract : Purpose: To develop a Ray Cast/Dose Superposition (RC/DS) algorithm for proton grid therapy. Its functionality needed to include automatic positioning of small proton pencil beams in a grid-pattern and superimposing thin beam Monte Carlo (MC) dose distribution data on a Computer Tomography (CT) density volume.

  5. 5. Strain Field Modelling using Gaussian Processes

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för systemteknik

    Author : Carl Jidling; [2017]
    Keywords : Bragg edge; strain field; Gaussian process; machine learning;

    Abstract : This report deals with reconstruction of strain fields within deformed materials. The method relies upon data generated from Bragg edge measurements, in which information is gained from neutron beams that are sent through the sample. READ MORE
