  1. 1. Tribology of newly developed EAL versus water in hydropower turbine bearings

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

    Author : Nayan Dhakal; [2019]
    Keywords : water-based lubrication; hydropower; turbine bearings; environmentally adaptive lubricants; modified water; viscosity modifiers; polyvinylpyrrolidone; poly sodium 4-styrenesulfonate ; UHMWPE; wear;

    Abstract : The increasing demand for more readily bio-degradable, renewable and non-toxic environmentally adaptive lubricants with a lower degree of bioaccumulation has escalated the investigation of water-based lubricants as the potential alternatives for conventional mineral-based oils. Water is an excellent environmentally adapted lubricant; however, it is a low viscous fluid and holds downsides of having corrosive nature and extremely low pressure-viscosity coefficient leading to insufficient load-carrying capacity.

  2. 2. Interscale transport of Reynolds stresses in wall-bounded flows

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI); KTH/Skolan för teknikvetenskap (SCI)

    Author : Gioele Ferrante; Andres Morfin; [2019]
    Keywords : Reynolds Stress; Zero-Pressure Gradient Turbulent Boundary Layer; Turbulent Couette Flow; Inverse Interscale Transport; Energy Cascase; Wall-bounded Flows; Direct Numerical Simulation; Large Eddy Simulation.;

    Abstract : Couette, pipe, channel, and zero-pressure gradient (ZPG) turbulent boundary layer (TBL) flows have classically been considered as canonical wall-bounded turbulent flows since their near-wall behavior is generally considered to be universal, i.e. invariant of the flow case and the Reynolds number.

  3. 3. Influence of Nucleation Techniques on the Degree of Supercooling and Duration of Crystallization for Sugar Alcohol as Phase Change Material : Investigation on erythritol-based additiveenhanced Composites

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik; KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : JiaCheng Lin; HaoRan Teng; [2019]
    Keywords : Phase Change Material; Latent Thermal Energy Storage; Temperature-history; Sugar Alcohols; Supercooling; Duration of crystallization; Crystallization; Solidification; Fasändringsmaterial; Latent Termisk Energilagring; T-history; Sockeralkoholer; Underkylning; Varaktighet av kristallisering; Kristallisering; Stelning;

    Abstract : Utilizing Phase Change Materials (PCM) for Latent Thermal Energy Storage (LTES) applications have previously been extensively researched as a measure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from energy consumption. In order to make use of the waste heat from industrial processes for LTES purposes, a new demand emerged for PCMs capable of phase change in mid-temperature ranges of 100 °C - 200 °C. READ MORE

  4. 4. Secondary Steel Metallurgy Slag Design and MgO-C Refractory Implications : Theoretical and Practical Considerations

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Industriell miljö- och processteknik

    Author : Hellgren Simon; [2019]
    Keywords : MgO-C; CaO-SiO2-Al2O3-MgO; Slag Design; Refractory Wear;

    Abstract : MgO-C based refractory materials, often used in secondary steel making, are exposed to variouswear mechanisms in its application. The wear could be divided into oxidative, chemical andabrasive categories, all behaving differently and all being influenced by different factors. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigating In-plane Shear Behaviour of Uncured Unidirectional Prepreg Tapes

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner

    Author : Ming Kai Chea; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Steering of prepreg tows in an automated fibre placement (AFP) process allows geodesic layup trajectory over a doubly-curved surface, as well as the potential to improve the efficiency of composite structures by tailoring their stiffness. However, defects (such as out-of-plane buckling and tow pull off) are commonly generated when the steering radius exceeds a critical limit, which impact the mechanical properties of the finished product.
