1. Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Modeling at the Cell Scale - Focusing on Species, Heat, Charge and Momentum Transport as well as the Reaction Kinetics and Effects
Sammanfattning : Fuel cells are electrochemical devices that directly transform chemical energy into electricity. They are promising for future energy systems, since they are energy efficient, able to use renewable fuels and, when hydrogen is used as fuel, there are no direct emissions of greenhouse gases.

2. The Performance of a Multi Cylinder HCCI Engine using Variable Compression Ratio and Fast Thermal Management
Sammanfattning : The prime mover in the world today is the Internal Combustion (IC) engine. The development and improvement of the internal combustion engines since Nicolaus August Otto and Rudolf Diesel has continued until today and will continue long into the future. No major competitor to the IC engine has yet emerged. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The mastoid, located in the temporal bone, houses an air cell system whose cells have a variation in size that can go far below current conventional clinical CT scanner resolution. Therefore, the mastoid air cell system is only partially represented in a CT scan. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The thesis describes the use of molecular motors in nanofabricated devices designed for potential applications in biosensing, computation and detection. We utilize the well-established guiding principles for controlling the motion of actin filaments propelled by myosin molecular motors, and build upon these developments in order to improve upon previously demonstrated techniques, and establish new methods that, we believe, offer significant progress in these fields.

Sammanfattning : From an engineering background, it is often believed that the human anatomy has already been fully described. Radiology has greatly contributed to understand the inside of the human body without surgical intervention. LÄS MER
