    Sammanfattning : Analyses of nuclear reactor safety have increasingly required coupling of full three dimensional neutron kinetics (NK) core models with system transient thermal–hydraulics (TH) codes.  In order to produce results within a reasonable computing time, the coupled codes use two different spatial description of the reactor core.

  3. 3. Modelling of the cyclic behaviour of superalloys

    Författare :Rebecka Brommesson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :FEM; kinematic hardening; Cyclic plasticity; TMF; superalloy;

    Sammanfattning : In the aviation industry today there is a trend of increasing operating temperatures in turbine engines. The advantages with higher temperatures in the engines are improved performance and efficiency. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Community Robustness Analysis : Theoretical Approaches to Identifying Keystone Structures in Ecological Communities

    Författare :Sofia Berg; Tomas Jonsson; Bo Ebenman; Daniel Stouffer; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :;

    Sammanfattning : Most of the world’s ecosystems suffer from stress caused by human activities such as habitat destruction, fragmentation, overexploitation of species and climate change. These factors affect the reproduction and/or survival of individual species as well as interactions between species in ecological communities. LÄS MER

  5. 5. On Parameter Identification for Better Predictions of Dam Behaviour

    Författare :Jasmina Toromanovic; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Geoteknik; Soil Mechanics;

    Sammanfattning : Numerical modelling is often needed as a tool to predict the behaviour and assess the safety of dam structures. Embankment dam structures analyses are quite complex and potential failures are hazardous. Predictions of dam behaviour by numerical modelling rely on knowledge about the mechanical properties of the materials the dam is constructed with. LÄS MER
