  1. 1. Evaluation of decentralized ventilation system with heat recovery

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Energi och ByggnadsDesign; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö

    Author : Sunkavalli Kowshik Chowdary; [2020]
    Keywords : Decentralized ventilation; airflow; air draught; heat exchangers; tracer gas; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Humans spend 90% of their times indoors, and maintaining a pleasant indoor environment is essential. Factors like human behaviour, combustion sources, cleaning supplies, affect the indoor environment, which could potentially affect the human health.the most common answer to controlling the indoor environment is a good HVAC system.

  2. 2. Evaluation of the antagonistic activity of Rhodotorula babjevae and its extracellular compounds towards postharvest pathogens

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Caroline Sandberg; [2019]
    Keywords : Rhodotorula babjevae; PEFA; postharvest pathogens; yeast; mold;

    Abstract : The growing population ultimately puts pressure on the food industry to become more effi-cient and to reduce postharvest food waste. The leading method of reducing postharvest decay of fruits has been through fungicide application. READ MORE

  3. 3. Who’s in charge? Electro-responsive QCM Studies of Ionic Liquid as an Additive in Lubricant Oils

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemivetenskap (CHE)

    Author : Bergendal Erik; [2016]
    Keywords : Quartz crystal microbalance; QCM; EQCM; Ionic Liquid; Lubricant additive;

    Abstract : Electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance has been employed to investigate electro-responsiveness of an ionic liquid as an additive in lubricant oils on a gold surface. Polarisation of the surface reveals changes in frequency where an increase in magnitude amplified the observed response, corresponding to a controllable alternation of the ionic liquid configuration on the surface as a function of applied potential.

  4. 4. Evaluation of Current and Feasible Future Use of Geothermal Energy at Chinyunyu Hot Spring, Zambia

    University essay from KTH/Kraft- och värmeteknologi

    Author : Christopher Kapasa; [2014]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The main source of geothermal energy is the heat flow from the mantle beneath the Earth’s surface, generated by the gradual decay of radioactive isotopes in the Earth‘s crust. A hot spring is produced by the emergence of geothermally heated groundwater flowing out to the Earth’s surface. READ MORE

  5. 5. Numerical simulations of the Cordilleran Ice Sheet (CIS) : Implementing a new module to the ice code ARCTIC-TARAH

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för informationsteknologi

    Author : Asako Fujisaki; [2013]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Paleoglaciology is an area of research where numerical reconstruction is actively used to understand the process of ice sheet growth and decay throughout past glacial periods, and numerical simulation of ice dynamics is a tool to reproduce the behaviors of the ice sheet and shelf under given conditions. ARCTIC-TARAH, designed by the Bolin Centre for Climate Research for simulating ice sheet dynamics, is developed based on the Pennsylvania State University Ice sheet model (PSUI). READ MORE
