  1. 1. Test setup for LDMX HCal readout

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

    Author : Joshua Greaves; [2020]
    Keywords : Dark matter; LDMX; dark photon; hadronic calorimeter; photomultiplier tube; Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : It is evident from cosmological observations such as the Cosmic Microwave Background, and the motion of galaxies, that the universe consists of approximately 5 times more mass than visible matter can account for. The Light Dark Matter eXperiment (LDMX) will take a unique approach in its hunt for dark matter; it will look for missing momentum signals in electron collisions with a Tungsten target, and will be looking in the sub GeV energy range for evidence of dark matter interactions.

  2. 2. Numerical modelling for characterization of the granular flows impact on the gas flow in a packed-bed-reactor

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

    Author : Anton Sundström; [2020]
    Keywords : DEM; Discrete element method;

    Abstract : The goal of the project was to characterize the granular flows impact on the gas flow in a packed-bed-reactor. The study was created at Swerim as a master's thesis for Luleå University of Technology. The packed-bed-reactor geometry used in this study is a scaled down blast furnace model. READ MORE

  3. 3. Method for interfacial energy determination of gold nanoparticles on solid surfaces

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

    Author : Mikaela Petersson; [2020]
    Keywords : Nanoparticles; sintering; interfacial energies; Young s equation; contact angle; Au; Si; silica; Sapphire; Al2O3; SEM; AFM; TEM; FFT; Science General;

    Abstract : The high surface-to-volume ratio of nanoparticles (NPs) makes them an interesting source for scientific research. How interfacial energies interplay between such a small structure and a solid bulk surface, are important because of the versatile applications NPs regard. READ MORE

  4. 4. CFD Simulation of Particles in Pipe Flow and Mixing Tank

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Mekanisk värmeteori och strömningslära

    Author : Aljaz Janic; [2020]
    Keywords : Multiphase flow; particles; TetraPak; mixing tank; pipe flow;

    Abstract : This project aimed to investigate the capability of the STAR CCM+ software when predicting the flow with particles using Lagrangian Particle Tracking and Discrete Element Method. The first part pertained to rectangular channel flow, with ratio between height of the channel and particle diameter (2h/Dp ) of 15. READ MORE

  5. 5. Planetary boundary layer height measurements in a rural environment in southern Sweden - Relation to meteorological parameters and aerosol particle concentrations

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

    Author : Ellen Carneheim; [2020]
    Keywords : Physics and Astronomy;

    Abstract : The aim of this project is to analyse planetary boundary layer height (BLH) measurements from the Hyltemossa research station and find their dependence on seasonality, time of day, and air temperature. Further, investigation was made into the correlation between mass concentration of particulate matter with equivalent diameter... READ MORE
