  • Nuclear Engineering Handbook (Mechanical and Aerospace by Kenneth D. Kok

    By Kenneth D. Kok

    Nuclear energy has, lately, gone through an enormous transformation, leading to significant technical advancements and a brand new new release of nuclear scientists and engineers. A accomplished e-book that displays the most recent nuclear applied sciences has been lacking—until now.

    The Nuclear Engineering Handbook is a reaction to this worldwide resurgence of curiosity in advertisement nuclear energy. A vast review of nuclear energy and engineering and their unlimited capability, this easy advent to the sphere presents an in-depth dialogue of energy crops and large insurance of the nuclear gasoline cycle, waste disposal, and similar engineering applied sciences.

    Organized into 3 sections—Nuclear energy Reactors, Nuclear gasoline Cycle approaches and Facilities, and Engineering and Analytical Applications—this booklet addresses the full nuclear gasoline cycle and approach. issues comprise every thing from the mining, milling, and enrichment of uranium and thorium gasoline assets, to gasoline fabrication, nuclear fabrics transportation, gasoline reprocessing, and secure waste disposal. This all-encompassing quantity discusses present analytical innovations relating to nuclear engineering, addressing defense, warmth move, protecting, thermo-hydraulics, and warmth physics. protecting reactor operation and radiation defense, it additionally outlines the industrial issues interested by development new nuclear energy stations rather than huge fossil-fueled crops, and elaborates on matters in regards to the regulate of emissions from the latter.

    A assessment of previous and present nuclear engineering functions, this useful source covers the gamut of the most important subject matters, together with old views, an in depth technological overview, and an evaluate of the field’s destiny course. it's a very good instrument that would aid readers to foster optimum realizing and use of nuclear strength for electrical energy iteration now and within the future.

  • Energiespeicherung am Beispiel eines Druckluftspeichers by Mario Kleinschuster

    By Mario Kleinschuster

    Bachelorarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Physik - Thermodynamik, notice: 1,0, , Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Eine vom Umweltministerium in Auftrag gegebene Studie belegt, dass Österreich bis 2050 energieautark sein könnte. Eine stabile Energieversorgung ist hierbei eine Grundvoraussetzung. Da die Einspeisung von erneuerbaren Energien stark von meteorologischen Schwankungen abhängt und nicht immer die benötigte Leistung zur Verfügung steht, wächst der Bedarf an Energiespeichern. In Österreich wird die überschüssige Energie hauptsächlich in Pumpspeicherkraftwerken gespeichert. Da aber der Bau solcher Kraftwerke einen markanten Eingriff in die Natur darstellt, sind Experten der Meinung, dass der Neubau nicht weiter verfolgt wird, sondern die bestehenden Anlagen modernisiert werden sollten.
    Ein anderer Ansatz um Energie zu speichern sind Druckluftspeicher-Kraftwerke (Compressed Air strength garage – CAES). Basierend auf einem Gasturbinenprozess, können z.B. leergeförderte Erdgasfelder oder stillgelegte Salzbergwerke wieder von Nutzen sein, um Energie in shape von Druckluft zu speichern.
    Ziel der Arbeit conflict es, anhand eines Berechnungsmodells und entsprechender software program die theoretischen Randbedingungen und Prozessabläufe für österreichische Bedürfnisse zu erarbeiten, und mit den beiden bestehenden CAES-Anlagen (Huntdorf und McIntosh) zu vergleichen.
    Als erster Schritt wurde eine Literaturrecherche durchgeführt um einen Überblick über die Komplexität solcher Anlagen zu erhalten. Da nur sehr wenige Prozessdaten der beiden bestehenden Anlagen veröffentlicht wurden, musste ein Berechnungsmodell erarbeitet werden, welches sämtliche Zustandsänderungen erfasst.
    Als weiterer Schritt wurde eine examine der veröffentlichten Daten der Austrian strength Grid (APG) durchgeführt, um die Lastbereiche abstecken zu können. Aus diesen Daten konnten zwei Lastspitzen definiert werden. Diese beiden Lastspitzen wurden in weiterer Folge als Berechnungsgrundlage herangezogen um die Speichergröße sowie den Entlade- und Beladevorgang zu errechnen.
    Der Entladevorgang wurde einerseits mit variablem Druckniveau und zum anderen, nach dem Stand der Technik, mit konstantem Druckniveau durchgerechnet.
    Der Beladevorgang wurde durch einen 3–stufigen Verdichter realisiert, da eine Verdichtung von Umgebungsdruck auf Speicherdruck mit nur einer Stufe energetisch nicht sinnvoll ist.
    Abschließend wurde eine examine des Wirkungsgrades durchgeführt. Im Zuge dieser Arbeit konnte gezeigt werden, dass eine CAES-Anlage energetisch durchaus sinnvoll ist.

  • The Geometrical Language of Continuum Mechanics by Marcelo Epstein

    By Marcelo Epstein

    Epstein provides the elemental suggestions of contemporary differential geometry in the framework of continuum mechanics. Divided into 3 components of approximately equivalent size, the publication opens with a motivational bankruptcy to provoke upon the reader that differential geometry is certainly the common language of continuum mechanics or, higher nonetheless, that the latter is a primary instance of the applying and materialisation of the previous. within the moment half, the elemental notions of differential geometry are awarded with rigor utilizing a writing variety that's as casual as attainable. Differentiable manifolds, tangent bundles, external derivatives, Lie derivatives, and Lie teams are illustrated when it comes to their mechanical interpretations. The 3rd half contains the idea of fiber bundles, G-structures, and groupoids, that are acceptable to our bodies with inner constitution and to the outline of fabric inhomogeneity. The summary notions of differential geometry are therefore illuminated through useful and intuitively significant engineering applications.
