  1. 1. Experiments on Heat Transfer During Diesel Combustion Using Optical Methods

    Författare :Christian Binder; Andreas Cronhjort; Mattias Richter; Andrew Heyes; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Heat transfer; Internal combustion engines; Phosphor thermometry; Machine Design; Maskinkonstruktion;

    Sammanfattning : Transportation is a crucial part of modern societies. This includes their economies. Trade and the transportation of goods have a great influence on prosperity. Nevertheless, the transportation sector with road transport in particular is heavily dependent on fossil fuels and emits a significant amount of greenhouse gases. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Free cooling in commercial buildings. Application with evaporative cooling tower and chilled beams

    Författare :Bengt Bergsten; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cooling tower; commercial buildings; simulation; low energy cooling; evaporative cooling; hydronic cooling system; internal heat gain; free cooling; chilled beams; methodology;

    Sammanfattning : The use of electricity in commercial buildings has increased over the last decades. One major cause is the rapid escalation of air conditioning equipment together with a growth of internal heat gains originating mainly from an increased amount of office equipment, which also use electric energy, and high levels of solar irradiation.

  3. 3. Non-Azeotropic Mixtures as Working Fluids in Heat Pumps: A theoretical and experimental study

    Författare :Marine Högberg; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :HCFC123; HCFC124a; HCFC22; performance comparison; COP; non-azeotropic mixture; capacity; sensitivity analysis; HFC152a; heat pump; CFC114; ethyl chloride; experimental study; HCFC142b; two-stage cycle;

    Sammanfattning : Due to the fact that CFC (Chloro-Fluoro-Carbon) fluids will be forbidden as working fluids in heat pumps for environmental reasons, there is an urgent need for alternatives. As one alternative type of fluid, non-azeotropic mixtures have been suggested. This thesis deals with such mixtures. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Influence of thermal mass on the heating and cooling demands of a building unit

    Författare :Fredrik Ståhl; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal mass; environmental impact; thermal comfort; heat storage; life cycle; building energy use; earth tube heat exchanger; comfort interval; heavy or light buildings; building structure;

    Sammanfattning : The purpose of this work is to find to what extent the thermal properties of the building materials, the allowed indoor temperature swing, determined by the comfort interval, and, to some extent, the ventilation strategy can affect the heating and cooling demand of a building. It is well known that a thermally heavy building, that is a building with a high heat capacity, often demands less energy for heating and cooling and have a more stabile indoor temperature due to heat storage in the building structure.

  5. 5. Experimental Aerothermal Study on Internal Jet Engine Structures

    Författare :Isak Jonsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Intermediate Compressor Duct; Aerothermal; multi-hole probe; Turbine Rear Structure; transition; experimental; IR-thermography;

    Sammanfattning : For commercial aviation, one potential gain in efficiency can be found in the jet engine auxiliary modules, such as internal jet engine components. These components have historically largely been overlooked, prioritising units such as turbines or compressors. LÄS MER
