• An Optimization Framework for Tracking Droplets in Fire Water Spray Images 

      Lundberg, Joachim; Lysaker, Ola Marius (Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2015-11-25)
      The properties of the flow from fire water nozzles, like droplet size and velocity distribution within the spray, are known to influence the fire suppression efficiency. To analyze the flow properties, the water spray is ...
    • CFD study of a fluidized bed 

      Lundberg, Joachim (Master thesis, 2008)
      The aim of this thesis is to investigate the momentum exchange between the phases in a bubbling fluidized bed. The momentum exchange can be described by a drag model. Several drag models with different assumptions are ...
    • CFD Study of Particle Flow Patterns in a Rotating Cylinder Applying OpenFOAM and Fluent 

      Dissanayake, Susantha; Karunarathne, Sumudu; Lundberg, Joachim; Tokheim, Lars-André (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      A rotating cylinder (RC) is a common type of reactor used in the industry, the most typical example being a cement kiln. The particle flow pattern inside such a unit is necessary for the mass and energy transfer, and this ...
    • Computational Fluid Dynamics Study of the Effects of Drill Cuttings on the Open Channel Flow 

      Welahettige, Prasanna Kumara Welahetti; Berg, Christian; Lundberg, Joachim; Lie, Bernt; Vågsæther, Knut (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      A three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) study was carried out for drilling fluid flow with drill cuttings in open channels. The flow is similar to the return flow when drilling, stream containing drilling ...
    • Detonation propagation in stratified reactant layers 

      Gaathaug, André Vagner; Bjerketvedt, Dag; Lundberg, Joachim; Vågsæther, Knut (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      A numerical investigation of detonation propagation in stratified reactant layers is presented in this paper. It is baesed on the reactive Euler equations using a two step chemical kinetics approach. The numerical simulations ...
    • Explosion characteristics for Li-ion battery electrolytes at elevated temperatures 

      Henriksen, Mathias; Vågsæther, Knut; Lundberg, Joachim; Forseth, Sissel; Bjerketvedt, Dag (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Li-ion batteries are used in electronic devices and electric cars, yet they create safety concerns due to the possibility of the release of combustible materials. The electrolyte, one of the main components in a Li-ion ...
    • Image-based sizing techniques for fire water droplets 

      Lundberg, Joachim (Doctoral dissertations at TUC;2015:5, Doctoral thesis; Peer reviewed, 2015-11-12)
      The Norwegian petroleum industry has developed a standard for the technical safety of offshore installations (NORSOK S-001, 2008). When dimensioning accidental load with this standard, the deluge or fire water spray may ...
    • One-dimensional model of turbulent flow of non-Newtonian drilling mud in non-prismatic channels 

      Welahettige, Prasanna Kumara Welahetti; Lundberg, Joachim; Bjerketvedt, Dag; Lie, Bernt; Vågsæther, Knut (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      One-dimensional model of non-Newtonian turbulent flow in a non-prismatic channel is challenging due to the difficulty of accurately accounting for flow properties in the 1-D model. In this study, we model the 1-D Saint–Venant ...
    • Simulation of burning velocities in gases vented from thermal run-a-way lithium ion batteries 

      Johnsplass, Jonathan; Henriksen, Mathias; Vågsæther, Knut; Lundberg, Joachim; Bjerketvedt, Dag (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      This paper describes the results from simulations of laminar burning velocities in the premixed air and flammable gases vented from abused Li-ion batteries. The released mixture from such batteries contain mixtures of ...
    • Using Image Processing for Flame Diagnostics 

      Lundberg, Joachim; Henriksen, Mathias; Gaathaug, André Vagner (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      An image processing routine was developed to determine the flame height of a hydrogen jet flame. Two different techniques was tested, where one where based on Wiens distribution of a black body and one based on intensity ...
