  1. 1. Study on future storm surge around Suo-nada Sea

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Teknisk vattenresurslära

    Author : Ayano Sonoda; [2019]
    Keywords : storm surge; Suo-nada Sea; numerical simulation; FVCOM; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Japan lies on an area frequently hit by typhoons while city functions are clustered along the flat coastal areas, hence Japan has experienced lots of storm surge disasters up to the present. Coastal areas along the Suo-nada Sea also have the vulnerability against storm surge and in the past Typhoon 18 in 1999, Typhoon 16 and 18 in 2004 made remarkable damages in the areas. READ MORE

  2. 2. Investigation of Emission Source Heights in FLEXPART 10.02 for the Wildfire in Pedrógão Grande, Portugal, 2017

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

    Author : Anton Nygren; [2019]
    Keywords : wildfire; Pedrógão Grande; structural similarity; SSIM; FLEXPART; MERRA2; CO; emission source height; skogsbränder; Pedrógão Grande; strukturell likhet; SSIM; FLEXPART; MERRA2; CO; utsläppshöjd;

    Abstract : One of the worst wildfires in Portugal in 2017 on June17- 21 started at the central part of Pedrógão Grande and spread fast to the surrounding areas Góis, Pampilhosa da Serra and Arganil. The wildfire took 64 lives and a large smoke plume was observed. READ MORE

  3. 3. ALTO Timing Calibration : Calibration of the ALTO detector array based on cosmic-ray simulations

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för fysik och elektroteknik (IFE)

    Author : Sotirios-Ilias Tsivras; [2019]
    Keywords : ALTO; Cosmic-Rays; Water Cherenkov Detector; Python;

    Abstract : This thesis describes a timing calibration method for the detector array of the ALTO experiment. ALTO is a project currently at the prototype phase that aims to build a gamma-ray astronomical observatory at high-altitude in the Southern hemisphere. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design of bi-adhesive joint for optimal strength

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Siva Koti Reddy Vennapusa; [2019]
    Keywords : Bi-adhesive joint; Linear elastic fracture mechanics; Cohesive zone modelling; Optimization;

    Abstract : To support the trust in the design development of adhesively bonded joints, it is important to precisely predict their mechanical failure load. A numerical simulation model with a two-dimensional linear elastic cohesive zone model using a combination of a soft and a stiff adhesive is developed to optimize the strength of a lap-joint.

  5. 5. Finite element modelling of strained nanowire heterostructures

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Synkrotronljusfysik; Lunds universitet/Fysiska institutionen

    Author : Alexander Grape Wyke; [2019]
    Keywords : Strain; nanowire; heterostructure; physics; nanophysics; COMSOL; simulation; lattice; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : When two materials with different lattice constants are grown together, this generates stress between them, and therefore strain. This strain causes them to have different thermal and electrical properties, and this is especially important on the nanoscale where changes have large impacts. READ MORE
