  1. 1. Machine Learning Prediction of Enzymes’ Optimal Catalytic Temperatures

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för data- och informationsteknik

    Author : Camille Finlinson Porter; [2023-03-22]
    Keywords : enzyme; protein; amino acid; protein structure; optimal catalytic temperature;

    Abstract : Enzymes that have been genetically engineered to withstand high temperatures are used by industry to make products with less waste and pollution. Different features of protein structure affect the optimal catalytic temperature ("topt") at which enzymes catalyze reactions most efficiently. READ MORE

  2. 2. Additives in a steam engine to decrease friction : Friction testing of solid lubricants in powder form

    University essay from Karlstads universitet/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap och fysik (from 2013)

    Author : Viktor Lange; [2023]
    Keywords : Tribology; friction; wear; steam; steam engine; ranotor; invencon; invencon AB; steel; contact mechanics; hexagonal boron nitride; molybdenum disulfide; tungsten disulfide; lubricants; solid lubricants; Tribologi; friktion; nötning; ånga; ångmotor; stål; kontaktmekanik; smörjning; smörjmedel; fasta smörjmedel;

    Abstract : This thesis aims to investigate the coefficient of friction between steel on steel contacts with the addition of solid lubricants such as h-BN, WS2, MoS2 in powder form, in dry conditions and wet conditions. More specifically, the purpose is to enhance the sliding between the piston rings and cylinder block in a modern high temperature steam engine developed by RANOTOR. READ MORE

  3. 3. Glauber Monte Carlo for proton-proton and virtual-photon-proton collisions

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk partikelfysik - Geonomgår omorganisation

    Author : Oscar Sepp; [2023]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : In high energy physics, we want to probe the inner structures and behaviours of the particles that are the building blocks of our universe. This is often done by colliding nuclei together. READ MORE

  4. 4. Moderling Acoustic Transmission in Towed Array Sonars : Computations of the coupled acoustic and elastic wave equations

    University essay from KTH/Matematik (Avd.)

    Author : Bill Claesson; [2023]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a method of solving the Helmholtz equation coupled with the Navier-Cauchy equation over a cross section of a Towed Array Sonar (TAS) modeled as a simplified cylindrical shell. The purpose of solving these equations is to estimate the transfer function of the pressure between the outside boundary and a position inside the TAS. READ MORE

  5. 5. Propagation of Nuclear Data Uncertainties for Reactor Physics Parameters in Fluorine-19-based Molten Salt Reactors

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad kärnfysik

    Author : Sigfrid Stjärnholm; [2023]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : It could be argued that a renaissance is taking place for the global interest in nuclear power - especially for the development of the next generation of reactor systems that aim at solving the problems with contemporary energy production with nuclear technology. One such proposed concept for Gen IV nuclear power is a Molten Salt Reactor (MSR), in which the nuclear fuel is in solution of a salt - often based on fluorine or chlorine. READ MORE
