Sammanfattning : In this thesis, resent methods in computational contact mechanics is brought into the process of gear design. The finite element method is used to model two elastic bodies in contact. By defining a contact interface between these two bodies, constitutive laws, regarding normal contact, friction and wear, are included. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Timber has become more popular as a construction material during recent years. Engineered wood products, such as glued laminated timber and cross-laminated timber, have enabled the construction of multi-storey buildings. Tall buildings with many occupants need to resist a disproportional collapse in case of unexpected exposures, e.g. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In this thesis, simulations are performed to study the motion ofindividual cells in flow, focusing on the hydrodynamics of actively swimming cells likethe self-propelling microorganisms, and of passively advected objects like the red bloodcells. In particular, we develop numerical tools to address the locomotion ofmicroswimmers in viscoelastic fluids and complex geometries, as well as the motion ofdeformable capsules in micro-fluidic flows.

4. High-Performance Finite Element Methods : with Application to Simulation of Diffusion MRI and Vertical Axis Wind Turbines
Sammanfattning : The finite element methods (FEM) have been developed over decades, and together with the growth of computer engineering, they become more and more important in solving large-scale problems in science and industry. The objective of this thesis is to develop high-performance finite element methods (HP-FEM), with two main applications in mind: computational diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and simulation of the turbulent flow past a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT).

Sammanfattning : Shape instability in timber products exposed to moisture variation is a serious problem since it can make wood products unsuitable for construction purposes. In this thesis the finite element method has been used to simulate deformations during the drying process.….…. LÄS MER
