  1. 1. Modeling and Analysis of the Shot Peening Process : a Study of the Residual Stresses in an Insert using the Finite Element Method

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för maskinteknik (MT)

    Author : Hamid Torkaman; [2018]
    Keywords : Shot peening; Residual stresses; Cutting tool inserts; Post-coating treatment; Coated cemented carbide;

    Abstract : Cutting tool inserts are often coated with thin layers either through chemical vapor deposition (CVD) or physical vapor deposition (PVD) processes. In order to have a better wear resistance cutting tools are mostly subjected to post-coating treatment processes. READ MORE

  2. 2. End-of-life scenarios for bioplastic food and drinking packages : a study of Swedish bioplastic waste disposal habitsand environmental impacts

    University essay from SLU/Department of Molecular Sciences

    Author : Tilda Hansson; [2018]
    Keywords : bioplastic; biodegradable plastic; compostable plastic; biobased plastic; PLA; Bio-PET; consumer;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to investigate real end-of-life scenarios for some of the most common bioplastics, such as PLA and Bio-PET, for food and drinking packages in Sweden and to evaluate some of the potential environmental consequences of these scenarios. Life Cycle Analysis often evaluate intended end-of-life scenarios for bio-plastic products, but this study used an explorative research method, gathering infor-mation of the conduction and habits of bioplastics to evaluate if these scenarios were the ones occurring.

    Abstract : Used lead-acid batteries are the main raw material in secondary lead production. Technologicalprogress in the car industry, have raised concerns regarding the lead-acid battery’s leading positionas electrochemical storage system in the future. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modification of a Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor(MBBR) due to radically changed process conditions : A case study of Kvarnsveden paper mill

    University essay from Högskolan Dalarna/Energiteknik

    Author : Liv May Johansson Macedo; [2018]
    Keywords : Moving Bed Biofilm Reactor; Pulp and Paper Wastewater; Performance Evaluation; Energy Efficient.;

    Abstract : Papermaking process require large amounts of energy and water; therefore, pulp and paper mills can be potentially very polluting. The wastewater resulting from the papermaking process must be carefully managed as it is very rich in dissolved organic matter and contain compounds that make it difficult to treat. READ MORE
