  1. 1. The value of cardiac MRI texture analysis in patients with clinically suspected myocarditis

    University essay from

    Author : Evin Ina Papalini; [2021-05-10]
    Keywords : Medical physics; Myocarditis; Cardiac magnetic resonance; Texture analysis;

    Abstract : Purpose: The aim of this proof-of-concept study was to assess the diagnostic value of texture analysis (TA) based on conventional balanced steady-state-free precession (bSSFP), late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) and T2-weighted cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMRI) in patients with clinically suspected myocarditis.Method: A retrospective cohort study was performed based on 30 patients whounderwent a comprehensive CMRI due to clinically suspected myocarditisbetween 2013 and 2018 at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital: 10 patients with clinical signs and positive myocardial biomarkers (Troponin T, indicating myocardial injury) as well as positive CMRI findings according to Lake Louise Criteria (LLC; group 1), 10 patients with clinical signs and positive myocardial biomarkers but negative CMRI findings according to LLC (group 2), and 10 patients with clinical signs but both negative myocardial biomarkers as well as CMRI findings according to LLC (control group).

  2. 2. A comparison of pressurised cylinders in HIP systems using CFD and FEM

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

    Author : Lisa Lindqvist; [2021]
    Keywords : Hot isostatic pressing; HIP; Pressure vessel; Monoblock; Axisymmetric; FSI;

    Abstract : A hot isostatic press (HIP) is a system which utilises high temperatures and pressure in order to densifyand enhance the material properties of components in the aerospace, automotive and additive manufacturingindustries, to mention a few. Quintus is a world leading manufacturer of HIP systems, and this master’s thesiswork has been written in collaboration with them. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of a Nordic BWR plant model in APROS and design of a power controller using the control rods

    University essay from KTH/Fysik

    Author : Jonathan Al-Ani; [2021]
    Keywords : APROS; Dynamic process simulation; System code; Nuclear reactor; nuclear power; BWR; Boiling Water Reactor; closed cycle; steam cycle; one-dimensional flow; Westinghouse; control rods; APROS; Dynamisk processimulering; Beräkningsmodell; Kärnkraft; BWR; Kokvattenreaktor; ångcykel; en-dimensionell flödesmodell; Westinghouse; kontrollstavar;

    Abstract : In this master thesis an input-model of a Nordic BWR power plant has been developed in APROS. The plant model contains key systems and major thermohydraulic components of the steam cycle, including I&C systems (i.e. power, pressure, level and flow controls). READ MORE

  4. 4. Development of a CFD Boundary Condition to Simulate a Perforated Surface

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för fysik

    Author : Medet Kiflemariam; [2021]
    Keywords : Computational Fluid Dynamics; CFD; Boundary Condition; Bleed; Aerospace Engineering; Aeronautical Engineering; Physics;

    Abstract : In aircraft with jet propulsion engine intakes at supersonic speed, strong pressure waves referred to as shockwaves occur, which may interact with any present boundary layers along the intake surface. The adverse pressure gradients associated with Shock Wave-Boundary Layer Interaction (SWBLI) may cause boundary layer flow separation, which can result in disturbances of the flow that can be harmful to the device or decrease engine performance.

  5. 5. Towards Hybrid Modeling of Avascular Tumours

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Author : Erik Blom; [2021]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This thesis analyses and expands upon an existing multi-physicsagent-based model for avascular tumour growth, in which cell behaviours are determined by a cellular pressure distribution andan oxygen concentration. Two models are developed and included within the avascular tumour model and their effects on the tumour growth patterns are analysed. READ MORE
