  1. 1. The effect of vessel holes on fracture behaviour in the femoral neck of the human femur

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik

    Author : Sofia Rokkones; Karin Odin; [2020]
    Keywords : image analysis; femur; FE model; biomechanics; CT image; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Hip fractures are widely spread in today's society and affect a person's quality of life. Osteoporosis is a bone disease that results in more fragile bones and an increased risk of bone fractures, including hip fractures. A method proposed for assessing the fracture risk is finite element (FE) models of the femur. READ MORE

  2. 2. Efficient Calculations of Two-Dimensional Radar Cross-Section Using DGFEM

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Avdelningen för beräkningsvetenskap

    Author : Daniel Persson; [2020]
    Keywords : numerical methods; DGFEM; discontinuous Galerkin; finite element method;

    Abstract : A two-dimensional discontinuous Galerkin finite element method algorithm in the time domain was developed for calculation of the radar cross-section of an arbitrary object. The algorithm was formed using local nodal basis functions in each element and coupling them via numerical upwind flux. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling of Wet Scrubber with Heat Recovery in Biomass Combustion Plants

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för byggd miljö och energiteknik (BET)

    Author : Wilhelm Johansson; [2020]
    Keywords : Centrifugal Scrubber; Heat Recovery; Thermal Efficiency; Biomass Combustion; MCP-Directive; Simulation; Modelling;

    Abstract : During combustion of biomass, particulate matter is emitted, which has severe health impacts on humans. The company ITK Envifront has developed a scrubber technology that cleans the flue gas while also recovering the flue gas energy, increasing the efficiency of the combustion plant. READ MORE

  4. 4. Rear end crash simulation using Human Body Models : An investigation of the design of seat structure using a 50th percentile female Human Body Model

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

    Author : Jacob Fagerström; [2020]
    Keywords : Human body model; Car crash; Finite element method;

    Abstract : In this master thesis it have been investigated how the stiffness of a seat affect the risk of neck injuries, e.g whiplash associated disorders, in a rear end low velocity car collision using a female human body model, HBM, and if dividing the seat into several sections with different stiffnesses.

  5. 5. Reinforcement Layout in Concrete Pile Foundations : A study based on non - linear finite element analysis

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Mohammad Mustafa Angar; [2020]
    Keywords : Pile cap; Nonlinear finite element analysis; ATENA 3D; Reinforcement layout; Strut and tie method; Pålfundament; icke-linjära finita elementmodeller; strut and tie-metoden;

    Abstract : The main topic of this thesis concerns the behavior of concrete pile cap supported by four piles with two varying positions of longitudinal reinforcements. The positions include top of piles and bottom of the pile cap. For this purpose, non-linear finite element models of a pile cap are created using software ATENA 3D. READ MORE
