  1. 1. Distribution of Ventilation Air and Heat by Buoyancy Forces inside Buildings : An Experimental Study

    Författare :Claes Blomqvist; Mats Sandberg; Per Heiselberg; Per Heiseberg; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building ventilation; thermal forces; buoyancy; gravity currents; large openings; heating; air quality; forced convection; free convection; Building engineering; Byggnadsteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The main task of the ventilation system in a building is to maintain the air quality and (together with the heating or cooling system) the thermal climate at an acceptable level within the building. This means that a sufficient amount of ventilation air at the appropriate temperature and quality must be supplied to satisfy thermal comfort and air quality demands and that this air is distributed to the parts of the building where people reside.

  2. 2. An investigation into ocean thermodynamics and water-mass transformation

    Författare :Magnus Hieronymus; Nycander Jonas; Stephen Griffies; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ocean thermodynamics; water-mass transformation; buoyancy; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents oceanic budgets of potential temperature, salinity and buoyancy as well as a novel way of diagnosing water-mass transformation in salinity-temperature space. The buoyancy of seawater is given by a nonlinear function of temperature, salinity and pressure and much of the work in this thesis revolves around how fluxes of heat and salinity influence the buoyancy of seawater through these nonlinearities.

  3. 3. Fluid Dynamics in Gas-Liquid Stirred Tank Reactors: Experimental and Theoretical Studies of Bubble Coalescence

    Författare :Rahman Sudiyo; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Computational Fluid Dynamics; Turbulence; Buoyancy; Bubble Coalescence; Multiphase Flow; High-Speed Video Imaging; Particle Image Velocimetry; Collision Mechanisms;

    Sammanfattning : This work deals with studies of bubble coalescence in turbulent flows of gas-liquid stirred tank reactors. Coalescence plays an important role in determining bubble size distribution, on which flow and mass transfer in such reactors largely depend. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Explicit algebraic turbulence modelling in buoyancy-affected shear flows

    Författare :Werner Lazeroms; Arne Johansson; Antti Hellsten; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : Turbulent flows affected by buoyancy forces occur in a large amount of applica-tions, from heat transfer in industrial settings to the effects of stratification inEarth’s atmosphere. The two-way coupling between the Reynolds stresses andthe turbulent heat flux present in these flows poses a challenge in the searchfor an appropriate turbulence model. LÄS MER

  5. 5. The Underground as a Storage Facility. Modelling of Nuclear Waste Repositories and Aquifer Thermal Energy Stores

    Författare :Thomas Probert; Matematisk fysik; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; exponential decay; modelling; fractured rock; classical mechanics; quantum mechanics; Mathematical and general theoretical physics; relativity; statistical physics; thermodynamics; Matematisk och allmän teoretisk fysik; klassisk mekanik; relativitet; kvantmekanik; gravitation; statistisk fysik; termodynamik; Environmental technology; pollution control; kontroll av utsläpp; Miljöteknik; conformal flow; heat as a tracer; KBS-3; stress field; temperature field; analytical solution; salt buoyancy; groundwater flow; nuclear waste repository; aquifer thermal energy storage; Fysicumarkivet A:1998:Probert;

    Sammanfattning : The underground is a vast region, which is, too a large extent, unused by man. It has a large potential as a storage facility due to its vastness and availability. This thesis, which consists of eleven papers and reports, deals with nuclear waste repositories in solid rock and with aquifer thermal energy storage systems. LÄS MER
