  2. 2. Simulation methods for hydropower flows : modeling and validation experiments

    Författare :T. Fredrik Engström; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Sammanfattning : My research project aims for more accurate modeling of the flow in hydropower plants. By accurate modeling, it is possible to try different modifications on existing plants in an affordable manner. Also, entirely new designs can be tested before realization. Hydropower delivers almost 50% of Sweden's electricity demand with a production of 74 TWh. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Stringed along or caught in a loop? : Philosophical reflections on modern quantum gravity research

    Författare :Keizo Matsubara; Lars-Göran Johansson; Holger Lyre; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; quantum gravity; string theory; loop quantum gravity; philosophy of physics; philosophy of science; scientific realism; structural realism; multiverse; thought experiments; Theoretical Philosophy; Teoretisk filosofi;

    Sammanfattning : A number of philosophical questions, all connected to modern research in quantum gravity, are discussed in this dissertation.The goal of research in quantum gravity is to find a quantum theory for gravitation; the other fundamental forces are already understood in terms of quantum physics.

  4. 4. Hedonistic Act Utilitarianism : Action Guidance and Moral Intuitions

    Författare :Simon Rosenqvist; Folke Tersman; Jens Johansson; Ben Eggleston; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; hedonistic act utilitarianism; consequentialism; action guidance; moral intuitions; hedonism; thought experiments; ignorance; imagination; morality; normativity; ethics; moral theory; normative ethics; Filosofi; Philosophy;

    Sammanfattning : According to hedonistic act utilitarianism, an act is morally right if and only if, and because, it produces at least as much pleasure minus pain as any alternative act available to the agent. This dissertation gives a partial defense of utilitarianism against two types of objections: action guidance objections and intuitive objections. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Fundamentals of substructure dynamics : In-situ experiments and numerical simulation

    Författare :Verity Borthwick; Sandra Piazolo; Dorte Juul Jensen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; halite; in-situ; X-ray diffraction; EBSD; annealing; substructure; modelling; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Geology; geologi;

    Sammanfattning : Substructure dynamics incorporate all features occurring on a subgrain-scale. The substructure governs the rheology of a rock, which in turn determines how it will respond to different processes during tectonic changes. LÄS MER
