  1. 1. Numerics of Elastic and Acoustic Wave Motion

    Författare :Kristoffer Virta; Gunilla Kreiss; Anders Petersson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; finite differences; stability; high order accuracy; elastic wave equation; acoustic wave equation; Beräkningsvetenskap med inriktning mot numerisk analys; Scientific Computing with specialization in Numerical Analysis;

    Sammanfattning : The elastic wave equation describes the propagation of elastic disturbances produced by seismic events in the Earth or vibrations in plates and beams. The acoustic wave equation governs the propagation of sound. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Hindered diffusion of nanoparticles

    Författare :Ananda Subramani Kannan; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Brownian motion; Hydrodynamic interactions; Multiphase DNS; Mobility; Langevin-immersed boundary method; Colloids; Aerosols; Nanoscale and Rarefied gas.;

    Sammanfattning : Brownian theory provides us with a powerful tool which can be used to delve into a microscopic world of molecules, cells and nanoparticles, that was originally presumed to be beyond our reach. Consequently, modeling the inherent dynamics of a system through a Brownian transport equation is of relevance to several real-word problems that involve nanoparticles including, the transport and mitigation of particulate matter (PM) generated though fossil fuel combustion and nanocarrier mediated drug delivery.

  3. 3. On some Nonlinear Aspects of Wave Motion

    Författare :Erik Wahlén; Partiella differentialekvationer; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; water waves; bifurcation; global existence; rod equation; wabve breaking;

    Sammanfattning : In the first part of this thesis we consider the governing equations for capillary water waves given by the Euler equations with a free surface under the influence of surface tension over a flat bottom. We look for two-dimensional steady periodic waves. The problem is first transformed to a nonlinear elliptic equation in a rectangle. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Kinetic modelling of runaways in plasmas

    Författare :Ola Embréus; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; runaway; Fokker-Planck equation; tokamak; Boltzmann equation; positrons; bremsstrahlung; plasma; synchrotron radiation;

    Sammanfattning : The phenomenon of runaway occurs in plasmas in the presence of a strong electric field, when the accelerating force overcomes the collisional friction acting on the charged particles moving through the plasma. Electron runaway is observed in both laboratory and space plasmas, and is of great importance in fusion-energy research, where the energetic electrons can damage the plasma-facing components of fusion reactors.

  5. 5. Vibrant bodies of swirling flow : On the limits of mechanical power transformation

    Författare :Ida Jansson; Don-Hyun Kim; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : This thesis pinpoints the intertwined nature of inertia. A vibrant body of a swirling flow is neither just a flow nor a body. It is both. LÄS MER
