  1. 1. Cooling Potential of Methane in Rocket Nozzle Cooling Channels : A Conjugate Heat Transfer Analysis

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för industriell teknik och management (ITM)

    Author : Marcus Pettersson; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The use of hydrocarbons as fuel in rocket propulsion has been of great interest to the aerospace industry in recent years. Specifically, natural gas with a high content of methane has taken the interest of several actors, among them Sweden-based GKN Aerospace who in collaboration with KTH Royal Institute of Technology have started the MERiT project.

  2. 2. Cracking in a slender concrete slab due to thermal variation

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Johan Mattsson; Fredrik Åman; [2019]
    Keywords : Concrete slab; Concrete; Finite element analysis; Cracking; Thermal variation; Seasonal temperature; Abaqus; Brigade Plus; Betonggrund; Betong; Finit element analys; Sprickbildning; Termiska laster; Omgivningstemperature; Abaqus; Brigade Plus;

    Abstract : Concrete slabs used in thepulp and paper industries are often situated outdoors, which means that theslabs are exposed to temperature variations due to different weatherconditions. These temperature variations together with operational temperaturesassociated with the manufacturing process, may introduce high temperaturegradients in the concrete. READ MORE

  3. 3. Freeze-drying of protein pharmaceuticalin vials with different character

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för farmaci

    Author : Julia Falk; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Freeze-drying of protein pharmaceuticals is a procedure frequentlyused to obtain stability of the active pharmaceutical ingredientduring distribution and storage. It can be performed in pre-filledsyringes, with a lubricous coating of silicone on the inside, toenable the piston moving. READ MORE

  4. 4. Basic Creep of Young Concrete - Sensitivity in the Evaluation Method

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad; KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Benar Ekmat; Natalea Hermes; [2019]
    Keywords : thermal cracking; young concrete; creep; Linear Logarithmic Model; temperature development; average strain; sensitivity.; Temperatursprickor; ung betong; krypning; Linjär Logaritmisk Modell; temperaturutveckling; töjning; känslighet.;

    Abstract : Creep is defined as deformation that takes place under constant load after an initial elastic response. This thesis focuses on a material property problem area that concerns stress analysis. Focus is on stress development considering creep deformations occurring when a concrete structure is under load, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Simulation of Hardening of the MahanaKhon Tower Mat Foundation

    University essay from KTH/Betongbyggnad

    Author : Zakaria Kazi-tani; [2019]
    Keywords : Hydration; MahanaKhon tower; mat foundation; young concrete; temperature development; thermal stresses; cracking; fly ash; finite element analysis; COMSOL Multiphysics; Hydratation; MahanaKhon tower; bottenplatta; ung betong; temperaturutveckling; termiska spänningar; sprickbildning; flygaska; finita elementanalys; COMSOL Multiphysics;

    Abstract : Cement hydration is the result of a series of simultaneous chemical reactions occurring during the production of concrete. An excessive amount of heat is generated, which consequently may give rise to thermal stresses and cause early age cracks in concrete that may affect its structural integrity, and load bearing capacity.
